Fantasy Flight Games


It's a Star Wars fest over at Fantasy Flight. The new Clone Wars box set for Star Wars: Legion is now available, ushering in a new era to the tabletop miniatures game. The starter and two ancillary sets are available. Also for Legion is the new Upgrade Cards pack, along with several battle mats. That's not enough? There's a new Outer Rim game mat as well, plus a new card pack for the Star Wars RPG. I told you there was a lot.

We've all been there before. You've got your games ready. Drinks. Snacks. Everything's set out. Then, the messages start coming in. "Sorry, can't make it." "Maybe next time." "Work called in last minute." "I got trapped in an alternate dimension." So, you're gonna be all alone for Game Night. But that doesn't mean you can't get your game on. Arkham Horror: Final Hour comes with a Solo Mode. Get a look at it in this preview.

A squad of troopers. They're the basic fighting unit of both the Empire and the Rebellion. But with the addition of even just a single specialist with a specialized weapon or unique training, the overall squad's abilities can be greatly enhanced. In Star Wars: Legion, you'll soon be able to upgrade your units with new specialists. Check out this preview of the two upgrade sets coming soon.

Marvel Champions will be heading to store shelves soon. But what heroes will be available right away in the starting core box, and what are their abilities like? Well, you're in luck, as Fantasy Flight is showing that off in this preview. Head on over and check it out.

X-Wing. It's pretty much just a 1-v-1 game with two squadrons facing off against one-another. But what about bringing more people in on the fun? That's a little trickier, but not impossible. To help out, Fantasy Flight is coming out with the Epic Battles multiplayer expansion. This new box set contains several scenarios for you to play out with your friends. In this article, they take a look at one so you can know what you're getting into.

The Investigators are doing everything they can to stop the Great Old One from coming into our world and destroying everything. Are they too late? The ritual is already finished. The Great Old One stirs. And that's just what we get a look at in this preview of Arkham Horror: Last Hour, coming from Fantasy Flight. While the Investigators are doing what they can, that doesn't mean the evils are stitting still. In this article, we get a look at the Ancient Ones phase in the game.

The moniker of Ms. Marvel has been passed through a couple individuals. Most recently, it's fallen on Kamala Khan. Her body went under extreme changes when she was exposed to Terrigen Mist, giving her all sorts of stretchy super powers. Soon, you'll be able to stretch out and take on evil as well with the Ms. Marvel Hero Pack coming for Marvel Champions. Check out what you'll be capable of in this preview.

Worlds Collide, new set for KeyForge, is coming out soon. The entirely unique-deck game, where no two player's decks are entirely the same, took the gaming world by storm. Now, they're bringing in yet more decks, including new factions like the Saurians. Considering my love of dinosaurs, you just know that it's managed to capture my attention. In this article, we get a look at how this new faction plays out in the game.

Discuss

The Dead of Night... That's when I tend to wake up and get a lot of my work done. But it's also filled with all sorts of strange sounds, unknown phenomena, and when evil is certainly afoot. At least, it definitely is in the new expansion for Arkham Horror that's now available from Fantasy Flight.

Discuss

The cultists were successful. The great Elder God will be coming. But maybe all hope is not lost. The Investigators still have a chance to save the world, but they'll have to work together and fast. That's the story in Arkham Horror: Final Hour, the new board game coming from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at the speedy Action Phase.

Discuss

While the Imperials can certainly create ships of rather large size, and the Rebels manage to get enough shipbuilders on their side to do it as well, the various individuals that make up the Scum & Villainy faction in X-Wing also can create such large ships. One example is the C-ROC Cruiser. This ship is getting an update to 2nd edition, and you can see just what it will look like in this preview.

Discuss

The villains are on the attack! Only the Earth's mightiest heroes can stop them. They'll do what they can to contain the villain's rampage. But what form will that rampage take? That's just what we get a look at in this preview of the upcoming Marvel Champions game. Have yourselves a look.

Discuss

Snakes! Why'd it have to be snakes!? Well, because they're cool, and there's plenty of myths and legends surrounding them. The Investigators in Mansions of Madness: Path of the Serpent will certainly come across a few during their exploration. But being prepared is important. So, what will they be coming across? That's what we get a look at in this preview of the scenario from the upcoming expansion.

The Marvel Champions card game was one of the big announcements from Fantasy Flight during Gen Con. It seems so long ago, but we're still a bit out from the release, and I'm sure plenty of players out there want to know more about how the game works. Well, that's exactly what you're getting in this preview. See how the Player Phase works in this new cooperative card game.

The new Campaign Expansion for Star Wars: Armada is now available from Fantasy Flight Games. The Empire and the Rebellion's massive fleets clash all over the galaxy, including the outer rim. The Rebellion hopes that the Empire's relatively light grasp will give them an advantage while the Empire looks to increase their holdings.

I know, sort of vague headline, but that's because this isn't a Design Diary about any particular game, but games in general. Fantasy Flight sat down with some of their designers and asked them about their first designs they ever did, and ask about what they learned from those early creations.

As I said in the previous story, you gotta keep up with the changing rules for games. You want to make sure that you're playing correctly. And while an RPG's rules are <Barbarossa voice> more like guidelines, anyway </Barbarossa voice>, that doesn't mean you stilll shouldn't pay attention to them. As such, head over and check out the Errata update for the Legend of the Five Rings RPG from Fantasy Flight.

The first scene in Star Wars was the highly dramatic capture of the Tantiv IV by the Imperial forces. Hopefully, when you play your own Tantiv IV in X-Wing, that same thing doesn't happen (but let me know when they release an X-Wing scale Star Destroyer, would you?). With the update to 2nd Edition, the ship's getting an overhaul. In this preview, you can get yourselve a look-see. I know that if I buy one, it's pretty much my only chance to ever get a Corvette.

Pretty much every RPG game out there that's being run or has been run has been different from one-another. Even if they're all running the same module, games will have vastly different styles, paths they go through, and outcomes. Such is the nature of the game. For those that have been playing the Genesys system from Fantasy Flight, they're looking to spotlight some of that homegrown content in their Foundry.

Dead of Night. It's when I do much of my work. *often up at 2am* But I will freely admit that strange things often happen. Weird sounds around my apartment or at the office. Walking to the car and just feel unease. For me, it's just some animals in the woods or my own paranoia, but for the Investigators in Arkham Horror, it's much more nefarious. In this preview of the new expansion coming for the game, Fantasy Flight looks at the new scenario you'll be trying to solve.

Longtime readers know that when it comes to miniatures, I like mine on the grand scale. A really well-done 32mm single soldier is fine, but give me the huge dragon. Give me the giant robot. Give me the massive starship. With the changeover to 2nd Edition for X-Wing, the huge ships had been left out. Well, not for much longer. We're getting a new conversion kit for them and Fantasy Flight is showing off a preview.

Discuss

Darth Vader. Just the name alone strikes fear in the hearts of Rebels everywhere. A terror on the battlefield, a new version of Darth Vader will be making its way to Star Wars: Legion soon, eschewing the weight of commanding the army to simply wade into the enemy forces, wiping them out as he goes.

It's started to get cooler out, even here in Atlanta. Highs will soon drop below the 90s and lows might dip into the upper 50s. Autumn is nearly upon us, and with it comes the haunting season. All things ghoulish are coming, including Fantasy Flight's Arkham Nights 2019, a 3 day festival of all things horror and weird based on H.P. Lovecraft's work. Tickets are available now.

It's a Star Wars party over at Fantasy Flight with their latest batch of releases. For those that've been looking forward to ships new and old for X-Wing, the fifth wave is now available. Those that want to get a little bit more down and directly involved with your Star Wars experience, there's the new Gadgets and Gear sourcebook for the RPG. Heck, you could use the latter to RP fixing damage to your ship that you played in the former. All of these are available now online and down at your LGS.

"Crashed escape pod? PB, shouldn't that go in the Terrain Corner?"

If it were just a crashed escape pod piece of terrain, yes, it would. However, Fantasy Flight is giving you more than that in this Star Wars: Legion expansion box. You are also getting figures for C-3PO and R2-D2, along with stat cards for using them both in Rebel as well as Republic forces. Hence, full regular post. Let's take a look.
