Most of us are stuck inside. And while game sales is cool, it will still take a while for those games to get here. However, if you've got a printer, you can get a copy of The Fantasy Trip: Melee and start playing it right away, as Steve Jackson Games has put it up for free on their website. And if you do want to order some expansions, they're on sale for 50% off.

Tanks the size of city blocks that are an army unto themselves. That's what an OGRE is. Steve Jackson's game of sci-fi combat is getting a new wave of figures in the form of two inconic vehicles. Wave 3 of this miniatures game is available to pre-order now.
Car Wars. I remember playing it way back in the day, long ago at The Fantasy Shop St. Charles. It was a game that was always all about making the craziest vehicles you could... and then ramming them headling into one-another. Well, the game is back, with a new 6th edition that's up on Kickstarter now.
We all know about crowdfunding and stretch goals. That's half the fun. But Steve Jackson Games is looking to create pre-stretch goals. They're stretch goals that happen even before the campaign's been launched. They'll soon be getting their Car Wars campaign underway, and depending on how many people sign up to follow the campaign, new things will be added right from the start. Go have a look.
I'm ready for it, as always. Yesterday I kept thinking, "Ooh! It's Friday!" but, of course, it wasn't. Not that it's been a bad week or that I have huge plans for the weekend. I was just thinking it was already here before its time, which is never fun. But that's not the case now. It is actually Friday and that does mean it's time to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: Steve Jackson Opens Up Dice and Accessories Pre-Orders, The Wilds of Wintertide Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, and Amazon Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter.
Well, it only took about 15 years to get here, but it's finally Friday. You know, for a short week, it was a long-as-hell week! Not that anything bad happened. And I had various things to work on the whole time. But dayum, it feels like it should've been Friday about 4 days ago. Oh well, as much as it seems we've been waiting for it forever, it's here. And that means some tasty gaming morsels are in store. And today, it's all about Dice.
Clickety-clackety! I roll for attackety!
Today on the platter we have: New Cthulhu Dice from Steve Jackson Games, The Wyrmwood Hero Vault 2 Up On Kickstarter, Self-Standing Dice Bags Up On Kickstarter, Virtue Symbol D8s Up On Kickstarter, Chritical (S)hit Dice Up On Kickstarter, and Sylvan Dice Available From Kraken Dice.
Steve Jackson Games has jumped from Kickstarter to Indiegogo for their latest project. They're looking to expand the amount of Ogre miniatures you have at your disposal. They're looking to turn some of the older, hard-to-find metal miniatures that they used to make into new, plastic versions. So, if you're looking for futuristic tanks the size of city blocks, this is your place to go.
We're halfway there. The weekend will soon be once more upon us. I know I can't wait. I've got game again this weekend. The continuing saga of our D&D group of adventurers that... still really aren't that much of a cohesive group and don't really like each-other that much. ... Yeah, our party dynamics are weird. :P
But anyway, that all aside, we need to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: New Jigswords Available From Puppets War, Kraken Dice Previews Bugaboo Set, and Munchkin Bricks 2 Up on Kickstarter.
Look, I know the theme song is probably already stuck in your head just because of the title and the image of the box there. I won't make it any worse. I promise. Anyway, USAopoly has announced another version of Munchkin that they'll be coming out with. It's heading to Duckburg. They've announced Munchkin: DuckTales.
Steve Jackson created The Fantasy Trip waaaaaaaaaaaay back seemingly a million years ago as one of the first RPGs out there. Recently, he brought the game back successfully through Kickstarter. Now, they're looking to add more to it. Steve Jackson Games is running a Kickstarter for The Fantasy Trip: Decks of Destiny, a bunch more cards for the game.
Steve Jackson Games successfully brought back the Dungeon Fantasy RPG through Kickstarter. Now they're looking to do it again, with a new printing of the core book, as well as expanding the line via their Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 book. Who doesn't want more monsters to throw at their players?
Join up with your favorite house, head through the halls of Hogwards, overcome obstacles and defeat monsters, and get yourself to the head of the class. That's what you'll be doing in the latest Munchkin release from Steve Jackson Games, this time skinned (figuratively, not literally) in Harry Potter. You can pick up your copies now.
I used to read a ton more webcomics than I do today. Most up and died pretty quickly, left to dissolve as their creators run out of stories and they fade away. Girl Genius isn't like that. It's got a rich story going back quite a long time and it's still loved by millions. It's now getting its own Munchkin Steampunk set. Take on the role of your favorite characters and stomp out the baddies. The game is up on Kickstarter.
It's October, and so that means the season of ghosts and goblins and things that go bump in the night. It's also a time where Warehouse 23 has their Halloween Madness sale. So if you want some cool stuff for free with your orders, you'll want to go check it out. But you only have until the clock strikes Midnight on Halloween to get them.
The Fantasy Trip was arguably the original fantasy RPG out there. Steve Jackson wrote it waaaaaaay back before most of you were probably even gaming (it was before I was gaming, I admit). The Kickstarter for a new version was a big success, but what if you weren't able to get in on that? No fear! The pre-order is here!
A new version of Munchkin will soon be unleashed on the populace. This time, the tropes and antics will come from Paizo's Starfinder RPG. The game was originally funded via Kickstarter, and so the box will include various extras unlocked therein. Pre-orders are being taken now.
Ok, so it's not exactly here yet, but it will be soon enough (That's not soon enough!). Just gotta get through the rest of today and we'll be there. I've got gaming lined up for tomorrow. I hope you do, too. But, as always, if we're going to be spending a day gaming, we should be sure to snack on some bite-sized gaming stories so we have our strength with us.
Today on the platter we have: Artis Opus Series S: Brush Set Up On Kickstarter, Reclusive Phoenix Entertainment To Run Kickstarter For Cthulhu-inspired Miniatures Line, Campaign Coins Running Deluxe Metal Meeples Kickstarter, Ultra PRO International to make Munchkin and Munchkin Collectible Card Game accessories, and Brigade Models - New British and German Aeronef Released.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
I'm sure that many of you, reading that line, three times in a row, read it in a very specific way in your mind.
Anyway, IDW and Steve Jackson Games have teamed up to bring you a new iteration of the Munchkin card game. In this one, they bring in those heroes in a half-shell, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The set is up on Kickstarter now.
