TGN Saturday Edition: Review Roundup

I, as I mentioned in my post yesterday, am more-than-likely playing 2nd edition D&D when this will be posted to the site.
Some friends I know have a long-running campaign and the DM is writing me in as an occasionally-recurring NPC. Not sure what my character will be (at time of typing), but it should be a good time.

Anyway, that’s as may be. Right now, it’s time for some game reviews.

In this batch, we have reviews/previews of: Boss Monster 2, Dark City 30 Corner Apartment Building and Gargoyles, Golem Arcana, The Great War, Apotheca, Lord of the Rings board game, Hocus, Paradox, Kaleidoscope, Infinity, Penny Press, Argonauts, Argent: The Consortium, and Star Wars Armada.

WizKids posts overview of Lord of the Rings dice building game

WizKids gives us a look inside their Lord of the Rings dice building game they’re working on.

From the overview:

The dice building game engine was pioneered in WizKids Games 2011 release Quarriors! designed by Mike Elliott and Eric M. Lang. Similar to deck building games where players collect a resource to purchase better cards to add to their deck— in a dice building game, players are collecting dice. In The Lord of the Rings Dice Building Game, players must work together to assemble an army of dice representing brave Men, battle-ready Dwarves, wise Elves and stout-hearted Hobbits and muster their troops against the forces of Sauron. But beware — some may be tempted by the power of The One Ring and become corrupted by evil!
