The folks over at Greenbrier Games have launched a Kickstarter campaign for the latest expansion for their Folklore: the Affliction game. It's called Fall of the Spire, and it adds more than just some new monsters and a hero or two. There's Advanced Combat rules, as well as new Town Elements that make things not as simple as they once were.
Life's tough for the heroes of the world. The forces of evil have all manner of nefarious schemes that they're trying to run in order to take over or destroy the world. And unlike comic books, all these villains are running all their schemes at once. In Mr. Rhee: Surviving the Nightmare World, players take on the either the role of the villains or one player takes on the role of the hero trying to save the day. In the end, the hero will stop everyone, or the villains will have their way with the world. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
Well, Gen Con wrapped up yesterday. Today's a travel day for me. Then we'll get you back to a closer-to-regular posting schedule tomorrow and going into the rest of the week. It's impossible to thank all the people who made this show so awesome. There's just too many to list (and my brain is still far, far too tired, even after some sleep). But it was an amazing show. Every year, I wonder if "The Greatest 4 Days in Gaming" is going to be false advertising or not, and every year, it proves itself correct. The show does, truly, deserve that title. Anyway, here's the last galleries from the show. I hope you like 'em.
The work week continues along. We're halfway home ("home" in this case being the weekend, of course). If we've made it this far, there's a good chance we'll make it the rest of the way. But just to make sure, we should bulk up on some bite-size gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Fantasy Flight Games Announces Runewars Essentials Pack, Moxy Roxy Bringing A Squirrel's Life To Kickstarter Later This Month, New releases from Terrible Kids Stuff - April 2017, Hitech Miniatures Posts New Releases, A.E.G.I.S. Combining Robot Strategy Game Returns to Kickstarter April 18th, Acheson Creations LLC is pleased to announce a UK/Europe distribution partnership with Company D Miniatures, Carthage Deck-building Game Coming to Kickstarter in May, Kentucky Sawdust Releases King's Court Dice Tray, The Painting Frog writes up about GW's pricing in Brazil, and Shieldmaiden plastics now available for pre-orders.
Greenbrier Games ones more takes you to the western-themed sci-fi world of their Grimslingers universe with Grimsligners: The Northern Territory, a new expansion to their battle card game. This is more than just a couple new cards, too. It also refines the core gameplay along with giving you new solo and coop variants for you to try out. The game is up now on Kickstarter.
Just yesterday I had a mighty fine hamburger for lunch. You know, the hamburger is so simple, but it's also very easy to make wrong. Or, at least, make an incredibly mediocre burger when it could've been really awesome. Turning the right ingredients into a fantastic burger is harder than it looks, but it's what you've gotta do in Burger Up, a new card game now available from Greenbrier Games.
Hold onto your hats, kids. We have ourselves a game with giant robots to talk about. And it is even one-step further. What's better than giant robots? Giant combining robots, of course! A.E.G.I.S.: Combining Robot Strategy Game puts you in the cockpit of a fighting robot as you lead your teammates against your opponent's team. I dig giant robots.
There's nothing quite like a really good hamburger. It's one of my favorite meals, honestly. Now, when not stuffing my face with them, I can still enjoy a good burger by playing Burger Up, originally made by Rule & Make, but coming to the US via Greenbrier Games, with a release at Gen Con this week.
It's been a scorcher so far this week in the US. Certainly has been here in Atlanta, at least. That heat's made it rough to go outside for anything. Seems like a good time to stay inside and do some gaming. Or at least get set for some gaming this weekend. But if we're going to make it through the heat and the week, we need to hydrate, as well as chow down on some bite-sized gaming stories.
On the platter today we have: Ainsty Castings Summer Sale and New Hammers Slammers 15mm, MidKnight Heroes Online store opening sale and Super Chibi round 2 Kickstarter, Silverclutch Games Launches Beneath Nexus Kickstarter Next Week, The Warriors: Turf Wars Kickstarter Launches On the 29th, Son of a Blank Party Card Game Contest Happening Now, Hero Master RPG-Inspired Greeting Cards Up On Kickstarter, and A.E.G.I.S. Coming To Kickstarter Soon.
The American West has all sorts of legends and lore associated with it. It's a time and place set apart from others, and it's a setting that's ripe for use in gaming. It's also very easy to meld into your own thing. Well, Greenbrier Games has done that, giving us a steampunk-weird West-magical sort of place for Grimslingers, a new card game they're taking orders for now.
A pair of new expansions for Yashima are going to be headed soon to shops. They're also available now for pre-order over in the Greenbrier Games webshop. They're the new Legend of the Icy Peaks and Legend of the Deep Woods sets.
The week rolls on. To think we've already made it to Wednesday. We deserve something nice. Like... a batch of bite-sized stories served up all in one place for your convenience. Yeah, that sounds good. So let's get to it.
Today we have: Bailey Records New Release: Kaiju Kaos - OMFG Series 4 Stat Cards, Folklore: The Affliction announces Story Journal created with Adam & Brady Sadler, Dragonborn - Symphonic Album for Table RPGs Kickstarter, Rebel Minis Releases 15mm Civilian Hunters Pack #3 now Available, Alternative Armies: Dwarf Runic Golem 28mm kit pre-order offers now live, Nova Aetas - Vesuvio's Forge overview, Purgatory Releases St. Peter Figure, New Medieval Soccer tokens and templates from Advanced Deployment, A0 The Rising Knight -- Adventures for 5th Edition Rules, Now available – Flagstone Deals From Tabletop-Art, Bardagi - The claim for Gold - 170% funded on Kickstarter, Red Box Games Halloween 20% Sale, and Machu Picchu Dice on Kickstarter.
Sometimes you want to play an RPG, but nobody wants to be the DM. That can put you and your gaming group in quite a bind. You're all prepped for a highly-immersive experience, but everyone has a character they want to play, as opposed to having to run the world. Thankfully, there are board games out there that fill in perfectly. Greenbrier Games has launched a Kickstarter for one such game. Folklore: The Affliction is up now and looking for funding.
Are you afraid of what goes "bump" in the night? I'm not because it's probably just my damn neighbors making noise again. Gah! Anyway, if you lived in the world of Folklore: the Affliction from Greenbrier Games, you probably would be. Folklore is a new adventure board game that has been in development for 5 years. The fellows over at Greenbrier have decided it's time for the game to meet the public, and so it'll be coming to Kickstarter next month.
The end is nigh! Greenbrier Games are in their final days for the Zpocalypse 2: Defend the 'Burbs over on Kickstarter. The campaign is over their funding goal, so now it's on to see how many stretch goals they can break through in these last couple of days. To entice you, they've added an exclusive mini to the campaign.
I was pretty certain that this week we would be getting a bunch of announcements about what companies will be having with them at Gen Con. My inbox and a swing around a couple company websites certainly has proven my hunch to be true. Greenbrier is the next in the list of gaming companies that are letting us know what they'll be bringing with them to Indy.
Greenbrier Games had launched a Kickstarter campaign for Zpocalypse 2: Defend the 'Burbs (also the name of the planned sequel to that Tom Hanks movie). The new set is a standalone game, so you don't have to have the original Zpocalypse in order to get your zombie-bashing, apocalypse-survivin' action on. This set, as you can tell, takes the action from the urban core out to the white picket fences and well-manicured lawns of the suburbs. However, things aren't calm and peaceful as one would hope for out here.
Greenbrier Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for their new Fantasy Resin Custom Miniatures Collection. More than just some figures for your tabletop, these miniatures are deigned to be customizable, coming with numerous heads and weapons with which you can make the mini you want, as opposed to the one you feel you have to build. The emphasis is also on detail. The resin being used was chosen to get every molecule of detail out of the sculpts. These are figures you'll be proud to put on your tabletop. The campaign is set to run for another 27 days.
The Inquisitive Meeple had themselves a chat with Rocco Privetera from Greenbrier Games about his game Ninja Dice: Kage Masters, that's currently up on Kickstarter. Get some backstory on Rocco's history with gaming, what he looks for in a game to add to his collection, and the creation of Ninja Dice. All that answered and more.
Thank you all for the amazing support, your help with all the input and feedback, as well as going out to help spread the word about the project! This is definitely a great community and we look forward to it continuing to grow and expand for these last two days, through release and beyond.
During our GenCon visit with the folks at Greenbrier Games, we were presented with an early prototype of their newest title: Yashima: Legend of the Kami Masters. Brandon and Travis share their impresssions of this unique martial arts themed game.
This game of fighting for miniatures , from oriental flavor , is currently on Kickstarter and is getting good success. For 2-4 players (but with the new thumbnails even more), 60-120 minutes , is based on a fast deckbuilding and essential but very characterizing (is on the model of Smash Up) and has an essentially mechanical card-driven . There is a billboard esagonato with different types of land, on which they move the thumbnails of the combatants, paying attention also to the orientation of your face, which affects the range of attacks scored and conceded.
Potent warriors empowered by ancient spirits and gods, each a trained disciple of their respective martial art, contest to see whose abilities are greatest. That's the pitch for Yashima: Legend of the Kami Masters, the latest from Greenbrier Games and now funding on Kickstarter. It's a miniatures Skirmish game calibrated for two to four player free-for-alls, incorporating quick and easy to understand card-driven mechanics with tactical positioning. The design goal for the game was to avoid the common pitfalls of unfun player elimination and extended game time, and in the hour-long demo time I had with the game that was completely true. See, in Yashima, defeat is just the beginning of your battle - though the game only continues until one player is undefeated.
Greenbrier games has another successful project on their hands and Arcane Wonders, publisher of Mage Wars, announces a cross over partnership. One of our most popular mages in Mage Wars will cross over to do battle from the arenas of Etheria to the Legends of the Kami Masters. The Wizard will become an unlockable upgrade and playable in their game, including a miniature sculpt!
