Essen is just around the corner. The show is one of the biggest out there and many companies will be showing off their new games. Funforge will be doing just that with Nimiji, a new stand-alone new game in their popular Tokaido range. Will you be at the show? You'll have a chance to check it out. For the rest of us, there's a YouTube video showing it off, and it'll be available later tihs year. So there's that.
Funforge is running a Monumental Kickstarter campaign. That describes both the name of the game as well as is an accurate description of what the game encompasses. It's not just your standard 4x civilization board game, but it also brings in deck-building mechanics as well. If there's a mechanic you like in those types of games, it's probably in here.

Now, some of you might've noticed that we ran Sunday Snippets on Saturday and are doing the Review Roundup here on Sunday.
I'm... not entirely sure how that happened actually. I think all the necromantic energy from the Zombicide previews got to me and confused up my brain! All day yesterday felt like Sunday. It wasn't until like 4-5pm that I was like, "Wait... it's Saturday!" Anyway, we've got your reviews for you today.
This week we've got reviews/previews of: Pathfinder Battles: The Lost Coast Booster, Kromlech Orc Character Set, 12 Realms: Ancestors Legacy, K2, XenoShyft, Fief France 1429, Samurai Spirit, Deus, and Galactic Strike Force.
The game also has an option app that can help streamline play as well as bring in new scenarios and effects for the game.
They've already made their funding goal, and they've posted all their stretch goals, so you can see which ones are coming up as they continue to go along for the next 27 days.
From the campaign:
The game takes place in Boston in the year 2025. A mysterious fog has rolled over the city, transforming and warping all it touches. This fog is an ever-changing part of the game, moving and effecting things as the players progress along. However, the players can fight back by finding special chemicals when defeating enemies. These chemicals can be used to heal themselves, or alter the fog in certain areas, or even control enemies.
From the post:
"Elegant” is the most overused word in board game commentary. It’s a surprising, seemingly out-of-place adjective in this setting, and its constant invocation is frustrating because no one ever defines it in context. Fear no longer: in this context, elegant means efficient.

From the website:
The action takes place in Boston in 2025.
The city has been hit by a storm of dark fog that residents simply call later "the Fog" . This fog destroys everything in its path, plunging the world he left behind in the chaos. It is unclear the exact extent of the damage. Fog semblance settle permanently on the areas it touches, making them so dangerous, almost impassable and infested with mutants are all lethal threats.
The vast majority of the population seems to be infected with Fog and those who were not killed are infected to the point of turning into violent creatures, ruthless, equipped with superhuman abilities and are constantly chasing the survivors .
