Year 2019

Once more, we stretch that PG-13 rating we have on TGN with an adult-themed card game that's up on Kickstarter. This time around, it's Sext Game, a new party game where players are given a prompt word and must send a text that uses it in some way. It's as adult as you want it to be.

Conventions are fun. Wish I was at one now. But really, you get to hang out with like-minded individuals and enjoy yourself some gaming. For fans of the different Battlefront games, you'll want to get yourself some tickets for their UK Open Day. Said tickets are on sale now.

When you're the GM, you've gotta come up with everything else in the world that doesn't consist of the party memebers. That's tough. There's guides out there that can help you with NPCs in the world. But they give you, what? 20? 30? Maybe 100 characters? That's nothing. The Ultimate Character Compendium gives you over 4 thousand. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Along with the mass of Star Wars: Legion announcements from this morning, that's not the only Star Wars game getting something new soon. While many of you were disappointed with the news that the Super Star Destroyer was going to be delayed, Fantasy Flight hopes that announcing a new Campaign Expansion will help pep you up some.

Also, there's Star Whales that remind me of the one from Futurama.

Almost there, everyone. We're almost there. Just gotta finish up today and we'll be back to the weekend. I hope you have some gaming lined up. I do. Then we'll see how it goes afterward. Either way, I need to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories. So, as is our tradition on Fridays, let's see what we've got.

Today on the platter we have: HeresyLab Heresy Girls 2.0 resin Scifi miniatures & STL Up On Kickstarter, New Mechanized Commissar From Brother Vinni, and Berry Taffy Releasing Tonight From Kraken Dice.

As many of you know, gamers love their hooch. And there's many different types of drinking games out there. Beer Bash is quite a bit different from your average card-based drinking game. It has closer ties to something like Jenga or Don't Break the Ice. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Oil War is the upcoming expansion for Team Yankee from Battlefront. Players head from the plains of Europe to the sand dunes of the Middle East as everyone wants to get their hands on that black gold under the sand. In this post, we get a look at the different factions that will be added to the game, as well as a little overfiew of how they work.

You've been waiting for it, and now you can go out and get it. The L.A. Crimes expansion is now available for Detective from Portal Games. Head to Hollywood and find your way through a sea of crime to keep the streets as clean as they can be for 1980s L.A.

Blood for the Blo-, oh, wait, that's the wrong type of wanting blood raining from the sky (Return to power draws near). This time around, it's Sanguinius, the Primarch of the Blood Angels. He's got a new mini up on Forge World's site, along with some new Terminators and the new Book 8 for The Horus Heresy. You can order all of them now.

I swear, Fantasy Flight went full ham on Star Wars: Legion announcements yesterday. Arguaby the biggest of these is the announcement that they're going to a new era in the Star Wars saga with the coming Clone Wars sets. They're getting a starter set, and they've posted up a couple previews of expansion packs as well. Along with that, Fantasy Flight has announced an Upgrade Card deck so you can further customize your forces. Finally, they have some new releases which include Death Troopers and Director Krennic, as well as the latest Star Wars: Destiny release.

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun hovel. And you may find yourself in another part of the realms. And you may find yourself weilding a large axe. And you may find yourself in a run-down bar, with a run-down barkeep. And you may ask yourself, "Well, how did I get here?"

That's just what the Party Backstory Generator is here to solve. It's designed to get your gaming group together and have a cohesive narrative so you can get your adventure on.

The Contagion Chronicles book looks to bring together all the various Chronicles of Darkness books and materials and put them together in a single place, nicely organized and laid out in line with other World of Darkness books. The world is beset upon by a mysterious Contagion, and only those with special powers will be able to save humanity from its blight. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

While time travel might be one of humanity's greatest advancements, it has also opened the door for nefarious types to try and go back in time and change things. That's just what the Time Breaker is doing, and you're on the hunt to stop them! That's the story behind Time Breaker, a new card game that's available now from Looney Labs.

If you've wanted to head to Vegas and, instead of just reciting Fear & Loathing lines, but instead play out the fantasy of being a gangster and taking over a casino, then Wiseguys: The Savage Guide to Organized Crime is for you. It's a new Savage Worlds setting book that's up on Kickstarter now.

We're now firmly in the latter-half of the week. The weekend will be here soon. And, with it, I hope you have some gaming prepped. I do. Other than that, we'll just have to see. As for said gaming, you'll want your gaming tables looking good, and we're here to help with that.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Hive City Vox Call Booths Available from Tabletop Scenics, Static Cling Terrain Up On Kickstarter, and Magnetised Wargame Terrain up On Kickstarter.

No matter how much playtesting you do before a game goes out, having a couple thousand copies of your games hit players hands will find more things than you'd ever want to tweak and fix on your own. So, while the original Infinite Power worked fine, the designers saw some places for improvement. They've made those changes and are now ready to reveal them with Infinite Power 2nd Edition. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

There's a new expansion for Moonstone that's up on Kickstarter. The Leshavult expansion brings in a whole new faction devoted to the lord of life, death, and rebirth. It includes a bunny summoner. If you want to create Night of the Lepus on your tabletop, you can now do that.

Adepticon is happening up in Chicago. I hope everyone that's there and reading this will head to Portillo's for me at least once. Italian Beef (dipped), Polish sausage (Maxwell Street Style), and a Hot Tamale. If you're not there, then you've not had a chance to see all the previews that Games Workshop has going on. So, while I can't give you a good meal through this format, I can give you those previews.

If you've been looking to get into the gaming industry, USAopoly has some new opportunities for you. They're looking for a Brand Manager, Communications Coordinator, and Director of Communications & Marketing Services. Think you might be the right gamer for the job? Head over and apply now.

There's a lot of extra material that Paizo puts out for Pathfinder over on their website. It could be easy to forget about some of it, or miss it, or lose parts of it. Thankfully, they've collected it together in one place for you. They've also given it some slight tweaks after hearing feedback on it.

While not a serious newsman, I do consider myself a bit of a reporter. So seeing an RPG about being a reporter for a major city newspaper set in an alternative 1920s New York where there's not only bureaucrats, gangsters, and flappers, but also demons, devils, and magic, it piques my interest. Dangerous Times is just that, and they're up on Kickstarter now.

Skirmisher Publishing is here once more with one of their sourcebooks. If you're looking for a bunch of minor magical items for your party, it might just be what you're looking for. It's Jester Dragon's Trove of Trinkets, and it's chock full of random dodads, gizmos, whatsits, and other such things. You can get your copy now.

There's a multitude of reasons why you might miss out on a Kickstarter campaign. But just because the timer's run out doesn't mean that you have to miss out. Case in point: Renegade Game Studios is currently taking late pledgs for their Terror Below game.

The Greek city of Messolonghi has outright rebelled against the Ottomans. They want a free Greek state, while the Ottomans want to maintain control. A siege has resulted. But which side will be victorious? That's for you to decide in Freedom!, a new board game from Phalanx that's up on Kickstarter now.

Halfway there, everybody. We're halfway there. We've made it this far, we can make it the rest. Hopefully, your weekend is prepped and ready for some gaming. Mine will have some D&D and then, I don't entirely know. We'll just have to see. But, before I get there, I need a quick snack. And that's what we've got here. It's been a while since I've had the pleasure of talking about a DreamForge mini, but that's what's on the platter today.
