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.

Ascension: Valley of the Ancients Available For Pre-Order

Honestly, I didn't have a huge "to buy" list for Gen Con. A couple miniatures from Steamforged. Some cool dice. And the newest Ascension set from Stone Blade Entertainment. I'm happy to say that I was able to get everything I wanted. But for those of you that couldn't get to the show (or got to the Ultra-Pro booth after they sold out), you can get your Valley of the Ancients set as soon as it's available by pre-ordering now.

Review Roundup

The holiday season is well and truly upon us. It's the last weekend before Christmas and all through the house, my D&D group had to cancel because everyone had last-minute stuff come up due to the holiday and the end of the year :/ ... But waddyagonnado? Me? I'm gonna probably bake some cookies and just chill, watching some Christmas movies, including MST3K's Manos, the Hand of Fate. Why is that a Christmas movie? Because it's in the same 2-disk box with Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. But that's me.

As for the exact moment, it's time to get you a bunch of reviews.

Today we have: Mythos Tales, BattleGoats, Murder at Blood Mansion, Timeline: British History, The Refuge, Ice Cool, You Gotta Be Kitten Me, Colony, CVlizations, Star Wars: Destiny, Pocket Madness, The King's Armory, La Granja: No Siesta, Escape Room: the Game, Ponzi Scheme, Doom: The Board Game, Deathwatch: Overkill, and Blood Bowl (2016 Edition).

You Gotta Be Kitten Me Now Available

Fuzzy puppies and kittens!
That's what my gaming group decided a character said when the player, in a bit of confusion from lack of sleep, said, "My character says something comforting." and left it at that. I mean, wouldn't you want a bunch of fuzzy puppies and kittens? I know I would. Sadly, I don't have the means to get a bunch of fuzzy puppies and kittens, except when it comes to You Gotta Be Kitten Me from Stone Blade Entertainment, whose official launch day is today.

Stone Blade Entertainment You Gotta Be Kitten Me Card Game

Ultra Pro Acquires Rights to Stone Blade Entertainment's Portfolio

As I said, not all the news is happening right on the convention floor. Along with the announcement about Zombicide, there's another partnership agreement to talk about. This time it's Stone Blade Entertainment, makers of Bad Beets and Ascension (among others), and Ultra Pro (you know, the card company that's been around forever it seems). Ultra Pro will be taking over publishing, marketing, and promotion for all of Stone Blade Entertainment's tabletop properties.

Ascension X: War of Shadows Now Available

It would seem that the wars on New Vigil are even throwing the regular cycle of night and day out of order. A shadowy evil is looking to plunge everything into eternal darkness. Heroes from the four factions (Lifebound, Mechanica, Void, and Enlightened) are gathering together to battle against this new foe. That's the story behind the latest Ascension expansion, War of Shadows, which is now available.

Buddy, You Got the Time? A review of War of Shadows

Hello, everyone. My name’s Polar Bear and I’m an Ascension junkie.
“Hi, Polar Bear.”
I have every boxed expansion that’s come out for the game as well as most of the promo cards as well. So when I saw that Stone Blade Entertainment was coming out with a new set at Origins, but I wasn’t going to be at Origins, I called up my friend who was going to be at the show and had him pick me up one.

They got back earlier this week and I got my copy. So, as it’s my thing to do, I decided to give you a review of it.

So double check whether it’s AM or PM. It’s time for another TGN Review. This time it’s Ascension: War of Shadows from Stone Blade Entertainment.

Stoneblade Entertainment Taking Pre-Orders For Ascension X: War of Shadows

New Vigil seemed like it was going to be nice and peaceful for a bit. But such is not the case, as the creatures from the Void once more look to cause all sorts of havoc. Only the realm's heroes will be able to turn the tide. And with new challenges comes new opportunities. Be it brightest day or darkest night... wait, wrong universe there. Anyway, Stoneblade Entertainment has started taking pre-orders for their latest Ascension set, War of Shadows.

Life is but a Dreamscape – A Review of Ascension: Dreamscape from Stone Blade Entertainment

I think it was about five years ago or so that I was first introduced to deckbuilding games. It was on the Wednesday before Gen Con. I’d met up with some friends. We went back to their hotel room and they showed me a couple them, starting with Dominion. Deckbuilding games were still rather new at the time. The one that I immediately latched onto and was Ascension by Stone Blade Entertainment (at the time called Gary Games). All this time and a whole bunch of sets later, I’m still excited about the game.

So, what keeps me coming back? Well, it’d be the new special “themes” that each set comes out with. The Dreamscape set just came out and the fellows over at Stone Blade were kind enough to send me a set to try out.

You’ll want to stay awake for this one. It’s time for another TGN Review. This time it’s the Dreamscape set for Ascension from Stone Blade Entertainment.
