Friday Snippets

It's Friday, and many of you up in Indianapolis, enjoying Gen Con. Remember, if you are there, do the "Gen Con 3, 2, 1". Every 24 hours, get at least: 3 hours of sleep, 2 meals, and 1 shower.

Fantasy Flight Previews New Wookie Releases For Star Wars: Legion

Part of me wanted to channel the Star Wars Holiday Special and have the opening to this story be nothing but grunts, hoots, roars, and howls, but I eventually decided against it. Instead, I'll just let you know that Fantasy Flight has announced a pair of wookie releases for Star Wars: Legion. One's the Wookie Warriors unit, and the other is the most-famous wookie there is, (oooooooooooh) Chewbacca! (What a wookie!)

Pandasaurus Announces English Release of Passtally

I love abstract puzzle games. Ask me to name my favorite board game and I'll tell you that it's Blokus. So seeing a new one making its way to American shores, I'm intrigued. Passtally is a big hit over in Japan, and now Pandasaurus will be bringing it over to an English-speaking audience. Players place tiles in order to create pathways, but you can stack the tiles, creating new routes over existing ones.

SFG Announces Horizon Zero Dawn: The Board Game

Steamforged is looking to become "The company that makes games based on popular video game series" it seems. Obviously, there's nothing wrong with that (though the last video game I played regularly was FFXII, so I'm totally out of the loop about these properties). They've got Dark Souls. They've got Resident Evil. Now they're headed to Horizon Zero Dawn. They've announced a new board game based on it, as well as shown off a pair of mini renders.

New X-Wing Releases Announced By Fantasy Flight

With the new edition of the X-Wing Miniatures Game coming, the Resistance and the New Order are breaking off into their own factions. No longer simply part of the Rebels and the Imperials, respectively, these new factions are in need of a bit of a leg-up in defining what makes them unique and not just a sub-set of a previously larger set of ships. Fantasy Flight has new Conversion Kits coming that'll help you sort that all out. Also, a new Scum & Villainy variant of the TIE is up for preview.
