Friday Snippets

Man, it is busy over here on this side of the screen. Pretty much all week there's been stuff going on. I'm sure that's part of why it feels like it's really flown by... And I've still not really gotten a handle on what I'm going to do with my D&D group tomorrow! Gah! There'll be time for that later (hopefully, theoretically, grammatically, esoterically). But, if we're to keep up our energy, we should nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Avignon: Pilgrimage Coming To Kickstarter in January, CloseYa network is open for a public beta in US, WW1 Themed Dice to be released in January from I Will Never Grow Up, Aenor Miniatures website Online, Week 3 December Deals Available From Greater Than Games, Merry Bitsmass Weekend Promo from Kromlech, and 3D Preview Posted For Ether Wars.

Avignon: Pilgrimage Coming To Kickstarter in January


Rekindle the flames of faith first stirred up in John du Bois’ Avignon: a Clash of Popes. The 2-player standalone expansion Avignon: Pilgrimage introduces new ways to push and pull your way to Pope, even more characters with new powers that change with their position, and alternate setups that create even more variety. Gameplay is like that of the original Avignon, using the characters' unique powers to pull the character cards over to their side of the table (their congregation), or force an opponent to push cards towards them. The first player to get three characters into their congregation wins. Play Pilgrimage by itself or combine it with the powers from A Clash of Popes to add new levels of strategy and tactics while preserving the quick and accessible gameplay of the original.

CloseYa network is open for a public beta in US


Local gaming communities play a crucial role in the hobby games ecosystem. They help you to discover new games and allow you to meet people interested in the games you love. Hundreds of online sources provide information on what’s going on in your local gaming community, but crawling through such jungle is not always easy and straight forward.

Therefore, District Games just launched CloseYa, an online network for players willing to discover and keep in touch with their local community. How many players of the games I like are there in my city? What events are planned for the next week? Is there anyone out there interested in joining my RPG group? All of these questions could be easily answered with CloseYa.

This is something we are quite proud of. Thanks to the skills of our teammate Carlos Gomez, we have created a 3D model of Ether Wars where you can move around the playing field at leisure. You can zoom in, zoom out and rotate, and above all experience the game in a fresh way. Feel free to share it in your gaming groups! :-)
