Neon Gods

Plaid Hat Games has quite a big release day going on. They've got two new games as well as a pair of decks for a classic. If you want to try out Neon Gods, and get your own 80s retro-cyberpunk-style-gang together, you now can. If you'd rather clash in the arena with your Guardians, you can do that, too. There's also The King of Titans and Ghost Guardian decks you can pick up for Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn.

In Neon Gods, players take on the role of gang leaders in a futuristic city. If your gang is going to survive, you're going to have to do some work and you're gonna have to fight. And it's those two mechanics that we get a look at here. Check it out.

In the not-so-distant future, gangs have taken over the brightly-colored night. As a Gang Leader, you want to make sure you get the best recruits so your gang comes out on top. However, every gang's gotta start somewhere. In this preview for Neon Gods, Plaid Hat Games gives us a look at your starting gang and where they might be able to take you.

You know, back in the 70s and 80s, we had a much different idea of what the 2000s were going to be like. I mean, we're less than a year and a half from 2020, and yet, I don't think baseball is going to be like Super Baseball 2020 that I used to play on my Super Nintendo. But what if it was much more like that? The neon, the corporate takeovers, the flying cars, the gang warfare? That's the future that Plaid Hat Games sets their Neon Gods board game in.
