Mangrove Games Announces Hollywood Death Race

People love to talk about hypothetical situations and see how things would turn out. Like, who would win a race between the Batmobile and the Delorean from Back to the Future? What if the Batmobile were being driven by Elliot and E.T. and the Delorean was driven by Lara Croft? Would that change things? That's the sort of stuff you can find out in Hollywood Death Race, a new game coming to Kickstarter this October from Mangrove Games.

Pathfinder 2.0 Playtest Begins

Playtesting is a vital part of any game's development. Something might seemingly work as-written, but once you get to the table and start trying to work with it, you might find the rules clunky or unclear or in other need for refining. With a game as beloved and big as Pathfinder, Paizo wants to make sure that when the new edition hits shelves, it's as perfect as it can be. So that's why they're enlisting your help. You've seen the previews, now get the materials and see how they work for yourselves. The Pathfinder 2.0 Playtest is on.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Arkham Horror 3rd Edition

I really missed out, naming this another Year of New Editions months ago, but it's certainly seeming like it's the case. In this instance, 3rd time's the charm as Fantasy Flight has announced a 3rd edition of the classic Arkham Horror game. Hard to believe the first version came out in 1987.

Nexus Arena Combat Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Two warriors enter. One warrior leaves... ... maybe. In Nexus, two gladiators are locked in life-or-death combat. However, it's not just some sandy pit they've been tossed into. This arena is alive and it's not going to make things easy for either combatant. With traps, snares, pits, and all manner of horrific things that can happen, even the victor is not assured to make it out alive. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

TGN Review: Iconic Blue 2 Dice Set From Kraken Dice

#NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice
That’s my honest belief. I mean… I guess if you’re not able to feed or clothe yourself, but you’re buying more dice, that might be too many, but until you reach that point, you can never have enough. A couple months back, people were talking about a website that’ll show you exactly how much money you’d spent on Steam over the years. They were lamenting the thousands of dollars they’d spent. I don’t have a Steam account… but I do have bags and bags and bags of dice. One company I’ve been following a lot lately has been Kraken Dice (I’m sure you’ve all probably noticed). Well, waaaaaay back, I got their Iconic Blue 1 set, one of their first limited edition sets. Well, I just got my Iconic Blue 2 set. And since I did a review of IB1, let’s do a review of IB2.

So, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s Iconic Blue 2 from Kraken Dice.

Midweek Snippets

It's August. And I know that this month is still summer, but... I mean, they're already selling Reese's Pumpkins at my Kroger (and have for 2 weeks now). I've got the doors and windows open because it's only supposed to get into the upper 70s here today, and I've put on my Type O Negative station on Pandora. It's autumn, as far as I'm concerned. And as the season for tricks and treats gets started (for me, anyway), let's get you some bite-sized gaming stories as well.

Today on the platter we have: Get a Free Mystery D20 Pin From Kraken Dice, Brigade Models Releases New Squadron Commander Models, and New Captured Princess Model Available From Brother Vinni.
