Devil Pig Games


It's 2019 and iello wants to start off the new year with a giveaway. They're looking to send you a copy of Heroes of Blackreach just for putting your name in the hat and being the lucky winner. Head over to their page and check out the entry requirements. You've got 12 days to enter.

Who doesn't like getting free stuff? Nobody, that's who!
Devil Pig Games is looking to give away 3 copies of their Heroes of Black Reach set for Drop Zone. If you'd like to get your hands on it, just head over to their Facebook page and put your name in the hat.
So, the holidays are over. You've maybe got some extra cash in your pocket from Grandpa and Aunt Ruthie. Time to spend it! But you want to make sure that extra loot goes as far as possible. Well, Devil Pig is looking to help you out. They've put their entire store on sale.
Mining can lead to all sorts of discoveries. You could be digging and suddenly stumble upon a huge area filled with energy crystals, for example! This treasure-trove will certainly bring wealth and power to your city. But you're not the only one sinking mines into the earth. Other cities have come across the same stash and are trying to grab those crystals for themselves. And, to top it off, there's monsters looking to come and attack your city! How will you balance between defending your city from the monsters and getting those gems? Well, that's up for you to figure out in Age of Towers, of which, Devil Pig has posted an overview article.
The new edition of 40k isn't the only thing going on with that particular universe. Devil Pig Games is taking their game system used for Heroes of Normandie and sending it into the far future and far from Earth. Heroes of Black Reach will be a new game set in the grimdark future where there is only war.
Hitler has worked hard to take over the European continent. His "Fortress Europe" seems impossible to assault, with reinforced bunkers, anti-aircraft installments, and tank traps set all along the coast. But the Allies must make their way onto land if they want to have any hope of winning the war. That's where the invasion of Normandy comes in. And it's that (and other major battles) that you get to play out in the Heroes of Normandie Tactical Card Game that's up on Kickstarter now.
And we've once more made it to the weekend successfully. The natural order has been maintained. I mean, just think if we woke up the day after Friday and it was, like, Wednesday or something. Man, that'd be a mess. But, as I said, that's not happened. As such, we should get on with the regular Saturday routine and get you some reviews.

Today we have: Kill the King, Captain Sonar, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition, The Dragon & Flagon, No Honor Among Thieves, Via Nebula, Behind the Throne, Star Trek: Ascendancy, Antarctica, Costa Rica, Heroes of Normandie iOS, Lost Woods, Battle Gnomes, and Ice Cool.

Sometimes a game's success can almost work against it. After a couple years, various extra material will be released here and there. There will be rules updates that are posted in various places. There's supplements released. Trying to keep up with all of it can be a hassle. Thankfully, the fellows over at Devil Pig Studios are collecting all of the various things they've released over the past couple years for Heroes of Normandie into one place and they've put it up on Kickstarter.
Ah, getting product in so you can send it back out again. "Shipping" has almost become a dirty word in our hobby, because it seems that's the place things can go the most-wrong. That's not actually the case, as there's a lot of places where things can get a little mucked up, but during shipping is one of the most-visible parts of a Kickstarter campaign. Backers have waited for a long time and their stuff is almost there, and yet there's still a wait. Well, Iello has some good news about shipping for Heroes of Normandie and Shadows Over Normandie backers.
Fluo Games is in their final 24 hours over on Kickstarter for their Color Warz: Dark Threat campaign. They've added the Wave 2 minis as add-ons if you'd like to have them as part of your pledge. If you were waiting until the very end, your time has come.

From the relaunch:

Color Warz : Dark Threat is the Color Warz : Paint Brawl sequel.

This new game stages an epic battle between the colors unified around the Chosen One to the Wooden King and his black paint. This two players board game proposes an asymmetric gameplay: each player has different abilities and characters. The players don't have the same goals. It's a standalone game with some bridges with the previous boardgame: Paint Brawl.


Fluo Games has added 3 new miniatures to their Color Warz: Dark Threat game if they make it to their funding goal.
Stay tuned this afternoon for a review of Fluo Games' first game, Color Warz: Paint Brawl.
