Restoration Games


Ah, Dark Tower. That was the name of the first comic book shop I ever went to. You could say that it's where I became a nerd. Unfortunately, this game isn't about running a comic shop in suburban St. Louis. But it's still pretty cool. Many of you have maybe played the Dark Tower board game from almost 40 years ago. If you have, you already know what's up. If not, well, read on, as Restoration Games is looking to restore the game to your tabletops with Return to Dark Tower (but with all new mechanics, rules, pieces, and technology, of course). The game's up on Kickstarter now.

Some new expansion packs are coming soon for Unmatched from Mondo and Restoration Games.

Welcome to Jurassic Park! *movie theme score plays, but we could only afford the version on kazoo*

That's right, the game about fighting for control will pit humans vs dinosaurs with InGen vs. Raptors later this year, with Sattler vs. T Rex and the Dr. Alan Grant solo sets coming sometime in 2020.

So, seriously, I thought the game looked cool before, but the prospect of playing dinosaurs, particularly a T. Rex has me giddy with anticipation.

Mondo Games and Restoration Games will soon be bringing you Unmatched, a new card-driven miniatures skirmish game where players take on the role of history's and mythology's greatest fighters in a one on one grudge match to the end. They're also excited to announce that the first single-hero expansion pack will feature Bruce Lee.
