Maybe we shouldn’t dwell on that, but, instead remember the games we all (hopefully) played on the weekend.

So, I’m told that, occasionally, people will have parties where they play games. I just have to take y’all’s word for it, solitary creature that I am.

Not 100% sure what I’ll get into this weekend. I think I want to make a cheesecake, though. Got a new recipe. We’ll see how it goes. But there’s also a heavy chance for gaming, and if I’m going to be gaming, I should probably fill up on gaming-related stories.

The Hidden Halls of Hazakor 5th Edition Adventure Up On Kickstarter

I’m sure many of us can remember back to the first RPG adventure we tried to run or played in. It might’ve been something you came up with, yourself, or it might’ve been a pre-generated adventure. If you were pretty young, you might not have fully understood how things worked, as the book was more-than-likely not written with a new player in mind. Well, the Hidden Halls of Hazakor, a new 5th edition adventure up on Kickstarter, is written not just for new players, but new dungeon masters as well.

Midweek Snippets

The week continues to chug along. We’ve made it halfway there. Just another couple leaps and we’ll be back to the weekend. I’m excited to hopefully get back to the Tails of Equestria game we’ve been playing here at the office. It’s been since before the holidays that we managed to have our last session.

Today on the platter we have: The D20 Collective Running Metal Gaming Coins Kickstarter, Brigade Models Release More British Aeronef, New Mercenaries Miniatures Available From Brother Vinni, and Kraken Dice Iconic Blue Giveaway.

Good Society: A Jane Austen Roleplaying Game Up On Kickstarter

I’ve gotta be honest, the only exposure to Jane Austen I’ve had has come from parodies (mostly from Daria and Futurama). However, many of my friends are deep into literature and have read most of her works. If you’re like them, then you’ll be excited to know about Good Society, a new RPG that brings you right into the world of Jane Austen’s work. Make your way through social gatherings and the seemingly impenetrable wall of social situations and rules as you look for love. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

The Keyring RPG Up On Kickstarter

RPGs are fun and all, but it can get to be too much carrying around all those books. The Keyring RPG looks to get around that by making a game that literally fits on a keyring.

Friday Snippets

Hello, Friday, my old friend.
This has been the first full-week of the year, methinks. Like, ok, I know that we’re already into February, but I think this might be the only week where I’ve been up and into the office each day. Just been that type of year so far, I suppose. What might help is bulking up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: The Army Painter Announces New Zombicide: Green Horde Paint Sets, Dice Coins Up On Kickstarter, Muddleflog Paper Miniatures Are Now Available, and New Oval Ancient Machinery Bases Available From Tabletop-Art.

Occasionally, a game will need a new edition. Mechanics that were good for a while don’t hold up as well as had been hoped. The setting can use a bit of polish. Fresh insight is brought in, along with building off the wisdom of the old. In this instance, it’s the Trinity Continuum RPG. They’re up on Kickstarter looking to get a new edition made, and it looks like it’s gonna happen.

The Europa Incident Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Midweek Snippets

Still working on getting better from this cold. It always seems to take me longer to get back to 100% than it does days that I’m actually feeling sick. It’s like, “Ok, these are the days I’m definitely sick” and then a week of, “I’m hoping this is the last day of this garbage.”
I’m starting to get my appetite back, though. So I’m going to chow down on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today in the platter we have: Treasure Towers Dice Towers Up On Kickstarter, Now available – New Ancestral Ruins bases From Tabletop-Art, Necronomicon Dice Up On Kickstarter, and New Nurgle Trays from Battle Foam: Great Unclean One.

Voodoo Games Running Isles of Terror Board Game Kickstarter

When the Conquistadores made their way into the islands of the Caribbean and around South and Central America, there were plenty of dangers among the palm trees. The Natives certainly weren’t always interested in having their riches plundered. There were storms that could wipe out entire islands. Then, of course, there were the ancient gods. Facing all these trials is what you’ll be doing in Isles of Terror, a new board game from Voodoo Games that’s up on Kickstarter now.

5150: Bugs: Into the Tunnels Minis Game Up On Kickstarter

Bugs.
I mean, I realize they’re a vital part of the ecological system and all, but I’d prefer if they didn’t come invading into my apartment. However, as bad as seeing something scurry across your kitchen floor in the pale moonlight may be, it is nothing compared to the bugs one comes across in the depths of space. For those, you’d best get out your plasma rifle. I don’t think a tennis shoe will suffice.
That’s the type of thing you’ll be fighting in 5150: Bugs: Into the Tunnels, a new minis game that’s a team-up between Two Hour Wargames and Acheson Creations. The game’s up on Kickstarter now.

Tiny Shark Interactive Announces SpacebabiesNRobots

Well, I have to say, I’m always intrigued when I come across a game that has a theme that’s different from most. I think it’s safe to say that that’s what we’ve got here from Tiny Shark Interactive. Their first board game is called SpacebabiesNRobots (or perhaps SpaceBabies N Robots… It’s one way in their press release, another on their website). The premise is simple, get your robots (that are carrying babies) to the escape pods in time.
The game will be coming to Kickstarter next month.

Castles & Crusades: Monsters & Treasures Up On Kickstarter

When your game has been around for 14 years, regularly putting out new material, it’s easy for a new player, or even veterans, to get lost when looking for a specific bit of info. That’s where compendiums come in handy. In this case, Castles & Crusades: Monsters & Treasures looks to bring together all the monsters that’ve been created for the game over the almost decade and a half and give you one, giant tome of fights for your adventurers to take on. The book is up on Kickstarter now.
