Many of you have thoroughly enjoyed the Root board game from Magpie Games. But perhaps you've wanted to get even more involved with the world. Go down into it and really explore the space, to become one of the characters. Well, soon, you'll be able to, as there's a Root RPG in the works. And you can get in on the action now on Kickstarter.

We're about 2/3 of the way through September. This month has been going by quickly. Seems like a good time to be showing off some releases. Paizo has posted up theirs, with a whole batch of products for both Pathfinder and Starfinder. From new books, to a new critical deck, to new maps. Have a look.

After the initial 3 seasons of Zombicide, the folks over at CMON decided to take the franchise to a different location. The previous games had been set in a modern world, but what if the zombie infestation happened in a medieval fantasy setting? Thus, Zombicide: Black Plague was born. Continuing their look through the history of Zombicide, they posted an article about this ye olden times version.

Longtime readers know that when it comes to miniatures, I like mine on the grand scale. A really well-done 32mm single soldier is fine, but give me the huge dragon. Give me the giant robot. Give me the massive starship. With the changeover to 2nd Edition for X-Wing, the huge ships had been left out. Well, not for much longer. We're getting a new conversion kit for them and Fantasy Flight is showing off a preview.

Your adventuring party has cleaned out the local nest of goblins and gotten their reward. They head to the tavern for some well-deserved rest when someone suggests a game. Cards and pulled out and bets are made. Chances are, the game they're playing is Three Dragon Ante. If you want to get in on the same action, you can do so with the new Legendary Edition of Three Dragon Ante, available from WizKids.

When your gaming group is spread out all over, it can be hard to get together in one room to play (I mean, if everyone lives in the same apartment building, it can sometimes be hard to get everyone together in one room to play, but still...). That's where digital tabletops come in, with Roll20 being an industry leader. And if you're looking for adding the acclaimed Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus campaign, it's now available.

The folks over at Starling Games aren't just bringing you one expansion for their Everdell board game with their latest Kickstarter campaign. No, they're bringing you two! Want to leave the valley and strike out for unknown territory, you can head to Spirecrest. If you're wanting to bring more people into the game than ever, grab Bellfaire, with room for 5-6 player games.

What's your type? Tall, dark, and handsome? Gothy vampire? Bookworm? Chubby chef? All of the above? Are you looking for someone special to enter your life? Then Hey Cutie might be the game for you. It's a new dating sim card game that's up on Kickstarter now. Find your perfect match!

A new expansion for the award-winning Tales From the Loop RPG is coming in just under a month's time. Free League Publishing has announced Out of Time, a new campaign that, as one would expect, involves time travel in order to save the world.

Wednesday. The week's halfway done. Now, to slide our way back down to the weekend. We can make it, I'm sure. I dont' have much going on this weekend, but that's pretty much by design. After all the ridiculous shenanigans I got into in my last game, I need a week off to re-compose myself. In the meantime, we can snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Dice Coming Tomorrow From Kraken Dice, New Fallen Knight Armor Available From Kromlech, and New Tridents Available From Puppets War.

Adopt. Adapt. Improve. Words to live by. Growth. Learning. Change. That's what we should all strive for. Even our games should do that. It's with that in mind that Nightfall Games is bringing you a Kickstarter to fund the 2nd edition of SLA Industries. Sure, the original won some awards, but they knew they could do better.

How well do you know your friends? I mean, really know them (ok, maybe not -biblically- know them, but really, really know them)? And, almost as importantly, what do you think about them? And are you willing to tell them exactly what you think? If so, then Burning Bridges might just be the party card game for you.

Defiance is the new co-op dungeon crawl game coming from Corvus Belli and it takes place in the Infinity universe. But, it doesn't just use Infinity's rules. At least not straight-up. So, how do the rules work? In this preview, we get a look at some of the basic game mechanics you can expect to see.

Darth Vader. Just the name alone strikes fear in the hearts of Rebels everywhere. A terror on the battlefield, a new version of Darth Vader will be making its way to Star Wars: Legion soon, eschewing the weight of commanding the army to simply wade into the enemy forces, wiping them out as he goes.

There's a bevy of new DC Universe and Batman Miniatures Game figures available to pre-order from Knight Models. They've got new versions of classics like Superman and Robin, along with a rogues gallery of baddies like the Joker and Lex Luther, plus more. Pre-orders go until October 1st.
