Review Roundup

Saturday! Saturday! Saturday!
Saturday! Saturday! Saturday!
Saturday night's alright for fightin'. Get a little action in.

Yes, it's Saturday, and while it's not night quite yet (at least, where I am at time of posting), that doesn't mean that it's not time for fighting. Though I'm not actually swinging my own fists around. It's my character in D&D. I hope you're out there swingin', too, be it with an RPG character or toy soldiers or on a video screen. Whatever your fight du-jour might be. I know you're here for some reviews, so let's dive into those.

Today we have: Tiny Epic Mechs, Creature Forge Overwhelming Swarm, Waterdeep Dragon Heist D&D Minis, Tyranny of Dragons D&D Minis, Ravage: Dungeons and Plunder, Minerva, and Cat Lady.

Review Roundup

Saturdaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Woo!
My favorite day of the week, as I can just sit back, relax, and do some gaming.
Nevermind that this week I'm vacuuming, dusting, and cleaning countertops in the den. That's important, too.
So, while I try and figure out just how much dust a single lamp can acquire, let's get you those reviews you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Atlantis: Island of the Gods, Build It with Bryan, Sea of Plunder, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Tiny Epic Quest, Way of the Panda, Dogmight Games Sentinel Board Game Box, Anatomy Fluxx, Head of Mousehold, Robinson Crusoe 2nd Edition, Who Should We Eat?, Among the Stars iOS, Thunderstone Quest, Ticket to Ride: New York, Die Quacksalber von Quedlinburg, Junk Orbit, Nine Worlds, Nimble, For King & Parliament, and Warhammer 40k: Kill Team.

Heroes of Land, Air & Sea: Pestilence Expansion and New Print Run Up On Kickstarter

Gamelyn Games is looking to expand the world of Heroes of Land, Air & Sea, and they've taken to Kickstarter to do it. Pestilence is said new expansion, and it brings in a new floating island to conquer. Along with this new set, though, they're looking to do a reprint of the base game. So if you've been wanting to jump in, this is the perfect time to do so.

Late Pledges Open For Tiny Epic Zombies

When you're dead, you're dead... or are you? It would seem that death is not so permanent, at least, not in the Tiny Epic universe. Even once a Kickstarter campaign is over, it's not really over. There's the Late Pledge period. That's where Tiny Epic Zombies is right now. If you'd like to get in on all the action, with all the extra unlocks and special pricing, now's your chance if you missed out before.

Tiny Epic Zombies Up On Kickstarter

Gamelyn Games is adding a new game to their Tiny Epic line. In this case, it's the walking dead. Zombies are swarming through Echo Ridge Mall in Tiny Epic Zombies. You're one of the last survivors, but will you continue to be a survivor, or will you simply be lunch? That's up to you to decide. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Friday Snippets

Well, this rocket-fast week is rocket-fastly coming to an end (yes, I made up a word there. It's not a very good word, but there it is). The weekend stretches before us like a blank canvas. Personally? I'm going to be playing some Guild Ball, putting together some Kingdom Death (or, hopefully, just playing more Guild Ball :P ), and then making a fruitcake (because I actually like fruitcake). But that's as may be. If I'm going to be doing all that, I should fill up on bite-sized gaming stories to make sure I get through it all.

Today we have: Gamelyn Games announces Heroes’ of Land, Air & Sea, Steampunk 35mm Miniatures from Topexx Dominions Now Live on Kickstarter, HSD Miniatures Expansion 1 on Kickstarter, and Battle Dice Weekend Promo From Bits of War.

Terrain Corner/Snippets

So, as I was in a car for just slightly more than 1/2 of yesterday, I didn't get much of a chance to post up the Midweek Snippets post. As such, I'm rolling it in with today's Terrain Corner, as I have a bit of time right now to do so (and to give you a "peek behind the curtain," I'm actually typing this late at night here on Wednesday).

Anyway, in this Terrain Corner/Snippets post we have: Gaddis Gaming Launches 28mm WWII Miniatures Kickstarter, Turn One Gaming Supplies Releases 8-Bit Dice, Donnybrook skirmish game rulebook now available, Post Apocalyptic Dwarf Bikers Up On Kickstarter, Round-Lip Space Dungeon Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Heroic Maps - Giant Maps: The Great Labyrinth Now Available, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Finial sculpts are in and late pledge extended, Crossover Miniatures Releases Frederick Class Airship, Meka Desert: Pwork Wargames science fiction gaming mat, Gamelyn responds to backers with only 3 days left, and Battle Valor Games 15mm Fantasy New Releases.

House of Borgia Dice Game Up On Kickstarter

I love bluffing mechanics in games. Being able to keep some information secret from your opponent while you play can add a lot of interesting elements to a game. What card do they really have there? What symbols did they roll on those dice? Did they have their character move left or right? Mechanics like that add some "battle of wits" in with the other strategy elements in the game. Such is the case with House of Borgia, a new bluffing dice game from Talon Strikes Studios and Gamelyn Games that's up on Kickstarter now.

Tiny Epic Western Board/Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Mount up, men! We'll head 'em off at the pass!
"Head them off at the pass? I hate that cliche!"
The other day, while getting my new tattoo, we put on Blazing Saddles for something to listen to (besides the buzzing of the tattoo machine). I think the only thing that movie didn't have that was satire of old Westerns was a game of cards (though there was a game of Chess). Well, Tiny Epic Western from Gamelyn Games does involve games of cards in order for you to take over this one-horse town.
