Nomad Games to Give Away Free Copies of Talisman Digital Edition

Playing games is fun. Even watching people play games can be fun. But what's better than that? Playing or watching games for charity. And what's possibly even better than that? Getting free stuff for watching games for charity. That's what you'll be able to do tomorrow, as Nomad Games will be giving away free digital copies of Talisman for those tuning into their Twitch and YouTube channels.

Midweek Snippets

Today's a day to celebrate. Why? It's my 5th anniversary with TGN. Yes, on this day, 5 years ago, I made my first post on the site. It was the new plastic Warp Wolf kit that Privateer Press was coming out with. Oh how gaming has changed since then. I remember having a conversation, a couple months into my tenure, with Ross "The Legend" Thompson (my boss at the time) about, "These Kickstarter-things."
So, to celebrate, let's have a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories.
What? We do that every Wednesday? Well, fine, be that way.

Today we have: Dice Coins 2 Up On Kickstarter, I Will Never Grow Up becomes exclusive distributor of Field Marshal Games products, Ramshackle Games Posts Stretch Goal Goblin For Jet Bike Kickstarter, New Discworld Death Bust -15% discount, Factions Fantasy Playing Cards Coming To Kickstarter in January, New Releases Available From Scotia Grendel, Casual Game Revolution Posts 2017 Tabletop Gaming Conventions Map, Mage Company To Launch Sleeves and Gaming Accessories Kickstarter, Kill the Unicorns Coming to Kickstarter in June, New Morbid Legionary Torsos From Kromlech, Temple of Isis Round Lip Bases Now Available From Tabletop-Art, New Releases And Final Christmas Sale From Advanced Deployment, Flatminis 2D preprinted miniatures are now available as PDF download, Two new Characters bring gold to Talisman: Digital Edition, and Khurasan releases 15mm Hezbollah and Syrian Government Forces.

Friday Snippets

Time has been playing weird tricks this week, I feel. The first several days flew by. Thursday took an eternity. Now, today's doing a little bit of both. I feel like it should be later than it is, so it feels like it's been a long time since this morning... but I've also gotten a ton of stuff done. So I dunno. I do know that I'm possibly going to be playing some Guild Ball this evening and then some D&D tomorrow. So that's cool. Better pack myself full of energy with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Imperial Knight Heads From Forge World, Knight Models Previews Suicide Squad Dice, Kromlech New Release: Legionary Shotgun, Angels and Demons join Flatminis 2D miniatures range, Shadows of Esteren Announces Partnership with Syrinscape, Talisman is Free to Play This Weekend Only, Comrades in Battle Reaches Funding Goal, 15mm Naval Crews Range is Back From Capitan Games, and Final Days for Tavern Masters Kickstarter.

Friday Snippets

This week seems just interminable. There's still half of today to go. I'm hoping to make it through, though. Got some plans to hang out with a good friend this evening and have some pizza (homemade, as in the crust and the sauce started as things like bread flour, Roma tomatoes, onion, and some olive oil), then hopefully do some gaming tomorrow. Tomorrow's plans just became a bit clouded, but still hoping they work out.

Either way, filling up on some bite-sized gaming stories will help. So let's get to it.

On the platter today, we have: Knight Models Teases Next Release, Kromlech New Release: Guardsmen Veteran Heads, Prospero Expansion Released Talisman Digital Edition, Brother Vinni's River Fear Now Available, and Frazetta's Masterpieces: Death Dealer Up On Kickstarter.

I don't know about you, but for me, it seems like just yesterday was Wednesday. I'm not 100% sure what happened to Thursday (maybe Langoliers ate it?), but it's already gone. That's alright, mind you. I'm always ready for it to be the weekend. Best to power up with some bite-size gaming stories.

On the platter today we have: Circles of Imora Trading Card Game Coming To Kickstarter, Heroic Ballads ver. 1.1 Released, Nomad Games Releases Two New Warlords For Talisman: The Horus Heresy, The Army Painter Technique Painting Bundle Now Available, and Kromlech Weekend Promo Happening Now.
