Welcome once again to Saturday. It's been quite a morning over here. Rather busy for a Saturday. Biggest thing I've been working on is my decision to magnetize my Betrayal at Calth set (yes, this means it's not 100% assembled yet. The games I've been playing of it have been using stand-in figs for much of it. It happens). The only problem comes from maneuvering small, fiddly pieces that, very literally, will move on their own. As such, I have glue all over my fingers. Thankfully, though, on at least one occasion, that's helped me when my drill bit slipped and instead of giving me a scrape, it just gouged the glue that'd built up there. So, an asset hidden in a liability.
But that's a story for when I post the review later today. At the moment, we've got other reviews/previews to deal with.
In this batch we have: Late French Napoleonic Infantry from Perry Miniatures and Warlord Games, Dark Moon, Clockwork Kingdom, Queen of the Hill, Dice Masters: The Amazing Spider-Man, Conquest at Kismet, Barony, Star Wars Armada Wave 2 Ships, Tides of Time, Pentoggle, Mars Attacks Miniatures Game, Risk: Star Wars Edition, Space Cadets: Away Missions, Bomb Squad, Escape the Nightmare, and T.I.M.E Stories.
It's usually the subsidiaries of Hasbro that we talk about here on TGN, as opposed to the releases from the company, itself, but I figure this is one you'll want to know about. Hasbro is releasing a new version of Risk, with a distinctly Star Wars twist to it. This isn't like the prequel Star Wars Risk (that I actually have at home), but focuses more on the events of The Return of the Jedi.
Risk. It's a classic board game. I'd be safe to say that the vast majority of us have played it at one point in time or another. Some enjoy it. Others don't. That's fine. But generally at one point or another, we've had to deal with someone holed up in Australia. The game also has many variations. My personal favorite is Risk: 2210. Well, for those that like Risk and like Game of Thrones, there's a new version of the classic game coming out from USAopoloy that you might be interested in.
