Friday Snippets

Time has been playing weird tricks this week, I feel. The first several days flew by. Thursday took an eternity. Now, today's doing a little bit of both. I feel like it should be later than it is, so it feels like it's been a long time since this morning... but I've also gotten a ton of stuff done. So I dunno. I do know that I'm possibly going to be playing some Guild Ball this evening and then some D&D tomorrow. So that's cool. Better pack myself full of energy with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Imperial Knight Heads From Forge World, Knight Models Previews Suicide Squad Dice, Kromlech New Release: Legionary Shotgun, Angels and Demons join Flatminis 2D miniatures range, Shadows of Esteren Announces Partnership with Syrinscape, Talisman is Free to Play This Weekend Only, Comrades in Battle Reaches Funding Goal, 15mm Naval Crews Range is Back From Capitan Games, and Final Days for Tavern Masters Kickstarter.

New Imperial Knight Heads From Forge World


This Imperial Knight Head can be used to personalise any plastic or resin Imperial or Questoris Knight from Forge World or Games workshop. It is a multi-part resin upgrade. You could use this head to personalise a Knight in your collection, or to give a unified look to every Knight in your Household.

Knight Models Previews Suicide Squad Dice


Our new Suicide Squad dice will arrive soon! Stay tuned!

Only One Week Remains to Back Upwind

Only one week remains to help crowdfund Upwind. The newest venture from award-winning game designer Jeff Barber (Blue Planet, Midnight), has followed up its successful premiere with an equally successful campaign on Kickstarter, that saw it funded in 13 hours, and named to Kickstarter’s “Projects We Love” list.

Set in a strange alternate world of floating island nations, flying sailing ships, long lost technology, wild elemental powers, looming war and forgotten legacies, Upwind is a narrativist role-playing game powered by the Q-System. This original, stakes-based, playing card-driven mechanic gives every encounter meaningful, story-shaping outcomes. With its use of bidding to ramp up both action and consequences, Upwind plays as fast as you can tell your story.

A joint production between Barber’s Biohazard Games and Stewart Wieck’s Nocturnal Media, Wieck and Barber describe Upwind as ‘Tesla-Punk’, and Wieck adds that “Upwind is unlike any other game I’ve ever published.” In the first three weeks the campaign unlocked several stretch goals, including Quick-start rules, guest-written adventures, and a poster-sized navigational chart of the Upwind world.

Kromlech New Release: Legionary Shotgun

Final Days for Tavern Masters Kickstarter

"Tavern Masters", the newest fantasy-themed tableau card game from Dann Kriss Games reached its funding goal this week and is now working toward unlocking stretch goals such as fantasy-themed metal coins and play mats add-ons as it nears the end of the campaign at 11:59 pm CDT on Monday Nov 7.

In additional to the three promo cards offered to backers of this campaign a total of six additional KS exclusive cards are now available with each copy of the game pledged for including the “Tak Board” game card which allows players to make the Tak game a feature of their fantasy tavern. Tak is a game from the fantasy series “The Kingkiller Chronicle” and we're so excited to include it as a part of Tavern Masters!

Tavern Masters is an exciting quick-play tavern-building game where each player stocks their Tavern with Goods to draw in new Patrons each round and hopefully entice them to stick around! Buy Drinks, hire Barmaids and Minstrels, serve Mutton and Crusty Bread, and welcome in Patrons both lowly and Noble; all to earn more Gold each round! Be the player to earn the most and secure your place in history as the greatest barkeep in all the land!

Tavern Masters will retail for $39.99 but will be available through this Kickstarter campaign for $35.00 with free shipping within the USA. The game consists of two decks; the Tavern Deck (70 cards) filled with Goods and Staff to purchase for your Tavern and the Patron Deck (75 cards) containing thirsty customers to lure into your establishment. Each copy also includes 60 Gold chipboard coins, 10 Gold Dragon chipboard coins and rule book all tucked into a custom plastic insert tray!

DKG is also offering the "Tavern Masters Dirty Deeds Expansion" as an Add-on for the campaign. The Dirty Deeds Expansion adds the Dirty Deeds Deck (48 cards) to the game in addition to six new Tavern Cards and ten new Patron Cards all in a custom tuck box. This expansion introduces a more direct player vs. player “take that” element into the game using your loyal Patrons and Staff to play nasty tricks on your opponents. The expansion will retail for $14.99, but will be offered for $10.00 during this Kickstarter.

All of the artwork is designed and crafted by the amazing Galen Ihlenfeldt and this artwork serves as the first look at DKG's fantasy setting "The World of Destiny"! Tavern Masters is Dann Kriss Games' first game featuring this setting which will expand in future game releases from DKG. The game and products will be manufactured by Whatz Games.

The campaign ends on Monday Nov 7 at 11:59 pm CDT so hurry over to the bar and pledge for your copy today!
