Gamelyn Games


Gamelyn Games is known for their Tiny Epic line. Now, it's time to add another. This time around, it's Dinosaurs. You're a dinosaur rancher and you're looking to acquire, breed, and sell all the best dinosaurs that you can. But they're ornery types, and corraling a multi-ton behemoth isn't going to be easy. This new addition to the Tiny Epic series is up on Kickstarter now.

Sometimes, tiny isn't small enough. You want something smaller. Ultra-tiny, for example. Well, that's what Gamelyn Games is giving you. They're running a really short (get it?) Kickstarter campaign for Ultra-Tiny Epic Galaxies. It's a whole game in your pocket.

There's a million reasons why you could miss out on a Kickstarter campaign. The money's not there. You forgot. Your tux didn't come back from the cleaners. There was an earthquake. Locusts! It wasn't your fault, you swear to goooooooooooooooooood!

But, thankfully, you can usually get in on it still during the late pledge and Pledge Manager time for the campaign. And that's where Gamelyn Games is at right now for Tiny Epic Tactics.

Discuss

The latest in the Tiny Epic series of games has launched up on Kickstarter. Tiny Epic Tactics is Gamelyn Games' next set, heading back to fantasy realms, it lets players grab their meeples and have whole adventures in tiny scale.

Discuss

Gamelyn Games has announced that the next line in the Tiny Epic universe is coming to Kickstarter next week. Tiny Epic Tactics will launch on the 19th. Of course, there's all new sorts of Meeples you can pick up. What does this new expansion hold? Let's take a look.

If you hurry, you can rush over to Amazon and pick up Tiny EpicQuest and Tiny Epic Zombies for a special sale price. Gamelyn Games is running a flash sale, so head on over. Don't delay, or these little fellas could slip through your fingers before you know it.

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.

The latest incarnation of the Tiny Epic world has made it to Kickstarter. I guess we should hit the Giant Robot Alert button, as we're dealing with Mechs this time around. ... Yes, it does seem odd to have a Giant Robot Alert for a game called Tiny Epic Mechs, but waddyagonnado?

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.

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.

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.
Discuss
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.

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.

Tiny Epic Quest is the latest in the Tiny Epic game line from Gamelyn Games. A fantasy world is created that's full of adventure. It's up to your band of heroes to go out and explore it, looking for wrongs to right and foes to fight, completing quests while gathering more powerful items and spells. The group with the most points at the end is the winner.

Saturdaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
*runs around with my arms over my head*
Ok, enough of that. Let's get down to business. You want to see review articles and I'm here to supply them (it is one of the most-popular posts of the week, after all).

Today we have: Sky Dynasty, Inis, Flash Point: Dangerous Waters, My Village, Death Pit Duels, Mombasa, Hold Your Breath, Tiny Epic Western, Colony, Z War One Damnation, Nightlancer, and Scythe.

Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black is a new, big-box expansion to Tiny Epic Galaxies. The new set offers quite a lot in new game mechanics. Sure, you get new ships, but you also get new pilots, new set-collection aspects, and a new press-your-luck style of exploring the galaxy. There's even a Deluxe version that comes with a mini-expansion.

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.

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.

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.

As we hunker down here for what could potentially be the first major winter weather event here in Atlanta (in which the temperatures are supposed to be above freezing, except for an hour or so, I'm not really expecting much of an issue here. Though the Northeast looks like it needs to brace itself), we think about what we could be doing with all that potential time spent huddled in our homes, unable to go out. So how about some gaming! Seems like a perfect time. So we've gathered together some bite-sized gaming stories for you to snack on.

Today's stories include: Prime Battlewalker Arms Available From Puppets War, House of Borgia Coming to Kickstarter, Blood Rage Foam Trays Available From Battle Foam, New Iron Reich Orc Taskmaster with Gnaw Hound Available From Kromlech, and New Biomechanic Heads Available From Tabletop-Art.

Gamelyn Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for Tiny Epic Galaxies, taking Tiny Epic Kingdoms into space. If you want to conquer space, but want a bit of luck element thrown in, this one just might be for you.
There's 2 weeks left to go and the project is closing in on $300k (they originally wanted $15k), so be sure to check out the add-ons and other stretch goals.

Club Fantasci's Jason Hancock takes a look at Tiny Epic Kingdoms from Gamelyn Games in this new review article.

From the post:

Tiny Epic Kingdoms is a 2-5 player micro game designed by Scott Almes and published by Gamelyn Games. I just received my Kickstarter Edition of this game and was excited to get it to the table. Of course, like all games when I first get them, (Wife claims I’m worse than a kid), I open them immediately to examine all the bits, tokens, boards, currency, and whatever extra goodies that came with it way before it ever hits the table.
