Imperial Assault


Monday Terrain Corner

Mondays... I mean, I get why Garfield wasn't a fan. I'm not really thrilled with them, either. But waddyagonnado? To have a weekend, you must have a week. And everything has a beginning. So we're at the beginning of the week. However, I did do some baking over the weekend, and so the office will be able to partake in dark chocolate cayenne pepper brownies, chili powder dark chocolate chunk cookies, and a pumpkin pie (no strange twists on the pumpkin pie. I just like pumpkin pie). And something, something, something, tie-in with terrain.

Today in the terrain corner we have: Fantasy Flight Games Releases Playmat for Fallout Board Game, New Imperial Assault Playmat Now Available, and Pwork Wargames Halloween Sale Coming This Week

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Legends of the Alliance App For Imperial Assault

Games are, by their very nature, competitive. Someone is going to win, in the end. However, some games have all the players working together against the game, itself, instead of against one-another. Imperial Assault wasn't originally a cooperative game. It was one player as the Light side and one player as the Dark side. Well, with the Legends of the Alliance App, coming soon for the game, you'll all be able to join up on the same side and fight together.

New Ally And Villain Packs Available For Imperial Assault

Photos From Gen Con Day 3

Gen Con this year has been everything I was expecting it to be. Mostly: filled with awesome stuff to see and filled with lots of people! Saturday has always been the busiest day, and yesterday was no exception. And while there was a mildly-noticeable larger crowd, we weren't all packed in like sardines, for the most part. You could still get around to see all the great booths here at the show. Though taking pictures was sometimes difficult. But take them I did. And here they are for you to see.

It's back into the office for most of us. Hopefully your weekend went well. I didn't get any tabletop gaming in, but I did have a great time with a friend I'd not seen in a bit.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Hera Syndulla and C1-10P Ally Pack for Imperial Assault

The Rebel Alliance is always looking for more people to join the cause. They don't have the rigid structure and industrial capabilities like the Empire, and so each member of the Rebel Alliance must be extra resourceful and capable. That's certainly the case with Hera Syndulla. And don't forget her droid, C1-10P. You can soon add them to your games of Imperial Assault, as they've got an Ally Pack coming out. Take a look.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Jawa Scavenger For Imperial Assault

"Finder's keepers." It's basically the Jawa motto. Certainly, if they come across some droids out in the desert, they're going to claim them as their own. And soon, that "what's yours is mine and what's mine is mine" attitude can make its way to your Imperial Assault games with the Jawa Scavenger.

Back in the office on Monday and Devo's telling me about workin' in a coal mine. Now, obviously, running TGN is nothing like actually being in a coal mine. First, I'm at a desk, typing news stories instead of swinging a pick-axe. Next, I'm in very little danger of getting Black Lung. Third, while I'm sure many coal miners do enjoy what they do, it's probably not the same extent that I enjoy what I do. But Mondays are still Mondays. Let's try and think about a weekend of gaming ahead, and making those gaming tables looking as good as possible, eh?

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Jabba's Palace Map Available For Imperial Assault and Fat Dragon Games Offers Free 3D Models With Newsletter.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack for Imperial Assault

These aren't just not the droids you're looking for, you want to make sure that they're not the droids that are looking for you. While they might outwardly look like C-3P0 and R2-D2, don't expect BT-1 and 0-0-0 to help you overthrow oppressive regimes. They're going to be making their way to Imperial Assault and bringing all sorts of mayhem with them.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces New Figure Packs for Imperial Assault

Droids are an everyday part of the Star Wars world. They're basically everywhere, filling in roles in all parts of life. As such, they should also be pretty common in the various games made about the universe. And it's not just the more well-known ones such as R2-D2 and C-3PO, either. With that, Fantasy Flight Games has a couple droid-centric figure packs coming out for Imperial Assault.
