We all know my love of getting to see the rules for things before I buy them. I like being an informed consumer. Well, Mantic is known for having rules online, and that includes for things that aren’t even out yet. The GCPS is the new faction coming for Deadzone, and to get you excited [&hellip...

Hey everyone. We’ve made it around to another weekend. I said I was going to probably be doing some baking. Well, I’ve got some magic cookie bars cooling right now. I love these things… probably too much… *looks at my stomach* … definitely too much. But issues with my wa...

While the GCPS isn’t normally the ones headed into Deadzones, sometimes that’s all that will work against whatever threat to humanity is to be found there. And keeping humans safe is what the GCPS is all about. Ever since the Mandrake Rebellion, they have redoubled their efforts to make s...

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 ...

I mentioned earlier not wanting to just walk to battle. Where’s the fun in that? No, you want to in style, like in some awesome combat vehicle. Well, the Enforcers and Forge Fathers in Warpath don’t want their troops just hoofing it to the conflict, so they’re getting some new vehic...

I do so love a campaign system for games. I’ve never been too hot on tournaments. Too much pressure all at once. But a nice campaign, over the course of a couple weeks or months, spreads all of that out and is just more enjoyable, in my experience. Well, Mantic is giving players the tools [&hel...

Getting into a new game, or even just a new force within a game you already play, can be a bit of a chore. Trying to figure out what all you need isn’t always the easiest to figure out. That’s where ready-to-play (once assembled, anyway) army forces can really help out. In the case of [&h...

You might think to yourself, “man, all these zombies around here. I should just blast myself into space. It’s probably safer there.” But that might not actually be the case. There’s war among the stars, too. So you might as well pick your poison. Take on some new releases for ...

Well, it’s Thursday. This week has gone by super-fast, mostly because of how busy it’s been. But that’s what happens the week before a show. Also, we’ve had a lot of people in the office to help prep. So that makes time go by, too. At the CMON Expo, there’ll be plenty of...

Well, we knew it was inevitable. The weekend has come to an end and we’re back at the start of the work week. Though, at least for me, this is no ordinary work week. CMON Expo is this upcoming weekend. If you’ll be in the Atlanta area, you should stop by and say, “hi.” But [&h...

As you all very well know, I’m a “try before you buy” sort of gamer. If I can even just get a read of the rules beforehand, it’ll really help me decide if a game’s for me or not. With so many out there (and more coming all the time), I certainly can’t play them [&h...

The busy week of being busy continues on. Yesterday was more of the same. The one thing that’s nice is that, sure, it’s been busy, but it’s been the good, productive kind of busy. So even though it’s a huge checklist I’m working through, things are being checked off. The...

So, the thing with Kickstarter exclusives is that you can’t sell them after the Kickstarter campaign, but you can give them away as promotional materials. I’ve learned this over the years, seeing how they’re handled. It’s a good way to still get those items, though it can some...

Wherever gamers get together to game, there’s going to be the question of, “who is the best at this game?” So you pair off and fight it out (on the tabletop, of course), looking to work your way to the top table and come out the champion. Nothing wrong with the good, healthy spirit ...
