For some people, it's never the wrong time of year for vampires. If you're one of those people, Masters of the Night might just be the game for you.

Ares Games will be bringing this new game to Kickstarter at the start of next year.

And it's where you find yourself in 303 Squadron, a new cooperative board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

The city is going through a massive building boom. Real estate magnates and contractors are coming together and construction is happening like never before. But who will get the best locations and who will be left with the bad neighborhoods? That's up to you to decide in Magnate: The First City, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

A game can be the best game ever created, but if it can't get into the hands of players, what good is it? That's why distribution is such a big deal. And if you are an English-speaker and you've been wanting to get some of Hexy Studios' games, you'll want to turn an eye towards Ares Games, as they've entered into a distribution partnership.

Beyond the world we know, an entire dimension of madness exists. From within that dimension, nefarious Elder Ones reach out to the minds of humans, tempting them to summon the gods to our plane of existence. It's happened. The Elder One is on its way. But maybe there's still a chance to stop it. That's the story behind Cthulhu: Death May Die, the new cooperative horror board game that's available now from CMON.

How will you be remembered? Friend? Foe? Hero? Villain? But more than you, how will your family be remembered? Will your name echo throughout all of history?

Build your wealth and prestige and find the perfect heir as you create the foundation for your family name.

The world has collapsed in on itself. Seems the hollow core couldn't quite take it anymore. As everything got crushed and destroyed, only one thing was left unscathed: the city of Talos. Now, the leaders of the various races are seeking this one haven out, wanting to find a new place for their people to live. But with resources scarce, and the terrain entirely new and different, it won't be easy. That's the world you find yourself in in Talos: Collapse, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

How will you change the world. The Kickstarter is up and running now.

Venice in the 1500s. The city was filled with wealthy and influential merchants playing their trade. As they looked to bring more money and prestige to their name, they would also have to make sure not to draw too much suspicion all at once from the city's Inquisition. Can you thread that balance as you traverse the city's historic canals? Find out in Venice, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

The Great Wall of China. It was created to protect China's northern border from invasion. However, the wall alone was not enough to keep the enemy out. It took the work of generals commanding their troops up and down the wall. That's where you come in. Awaken Realms has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Great Wall, a new worker placement board game.

Having a sale on Black Friday has been a tradition that's been around for quite some time. But not everyone has always participated.

Some items are up to 80% off.

IDW has some good news and some bad news in their latest announcement about the Metal Gear Solid board game. The bad news is that they're going to be delayed in their delivery of the game, now looking at summer 2020.

We're a week away from Black Friday, but that's not to say that some game companies haven't already started up the sales. Ninja Division is one of them. You can head over to their website and get a whole bunch of their products for cheaper than you'd usually spend. These deals last until December 9th.

As you all know, I'm a big fan of when a game successfully Kickstarts, then gets sent to backers, and then gets made available to the ganeral public. It's a long, winding, and twisting road, but it's a road that Steamforged has now successfully navigated with Godtear, its miniatures skirmish board game of unearthly might. You can pick up the starter set, along with extra sets, over in their webshop now.

Let's start this off with some appropriate music, shall we?

Nowthen, I'm always a fan of board games that have a unique premise. Fantasy towns. Sci-fi space stations. Zombie-filled malls. They've been done. But a group of ballerinas looking to become the star in the new production? That you don't see too often, but it's what we have here in On Pointe, a new board game from Analog Game Studios that's up on Kickstarter now.
