The game's gotten quite a rave following, and now it's getting a new expansion. Strange Adventures is more than just a set of adventure hooks, it's also a guide on storytelling in the KWB universe.

When searching an ancient tomb or some ruins or other possibly-dangerous place, it behooves you to be as quiet and as careful as possible.

ESSENtial Retailer Summit Coming Back to Essen

Someday, I hope to make it out to Essen. I would really love that. I've been to Gen Con, but from what I hear Essen is all that and then some. But the drive from Atlanta is kinda rough.

If you really want to know what companies will be coming out with that you will want to stock in your store, it's the place to be.

Renegade Game Studios Previews Spell Smashers

Language is a battlefield. I'm out here slaying words all day. It's not easy. Occasionally, I just run out of good words and have to use whatever I've got laying around. That's kinda what you're doing in Spell Smashers. Players must use their letter cards to create words and defeat monsters, gaining more letters to use. However, if you take wounds, those manifest as uncommon letter combinations. It's a bit Scrabble. It's a bit dungeon crawl. It's also coming in November.

Review Roundup

Saturday! Woo!

I hope everyone out there being affected by the hurrican is staying safe. A good way to do that is to stay inside and play some board games. And while it's a bit late to pick up a new one for the current storm, having some around for when the next shows up is a good idea. But what games should you get? Reviews can help sort that out.

Today we have articles on: Guild Master, Zero Gravity, Z War One: Exodus, Bad Maps, Draconis Invasion: Wrath, Prowler's Passage, GoTown, Blue Lagoon, Dragon Castle, and Spirits of the Wild.

An invasion is happening! Monsters are streaming through a portal from another dimension. What sort of military technology is required to take on such a force!?

Renegade Game Studios Announces Passing Through Petra Board Game

If Petra sounds familiar, you might remember it from The Last Crusade. It's the place that's used as the final location of the Holy Grail. But while the place probably doesn't hold the legendary cup, it's no less a magical and important place in history. In Passing Through Petra, coming this October from Renegade Game Studios, you'll make your way through the legendary place, yourself (well, vicariously through your game pieces, anyway).
