Year 2018


Whole new space wars are breaking out on tabletops all over. Folks are heading out to get the Battlestar Galactica - Starship Battles game, now available from Ares Games. Will you choose to defend humanity, or destroy it?

There's no such thing as getting the word out too early about your projects. And that's why Veridian Worldcrafters are letting you know that, next August, they'll be bringing their Verrago - The Globe Game to Kickstarter.

The forces of Chaos can be found all over Games Workshop's product lines. The demons and beasts of chaos have been fighting against humanity for millennia. And with the Realm of Chaos: Wrath and Rapture set, you not only get a bunch of Khorne and Slaanesh figures, but the rules to use them in both Warhammer 40k and Age of Sigmar.

Warlord Games launched their new game over the weekend. Warlords of Erehwon, by Rick Priestley, is their new fantasy miniatures game. The book can be pre-ordered with just the exclusive miniature, or you can order it with a skeleton warband or an orc warband. Also sneaking into the new releases is the A13 Cruiser Tank for Bolt Action.

Grab your six-shooter and head out into the desert heat, a-shootin' and a-firin' in Gunfighter's Ball. The game, originally successfully funded via Kickstarter, will be available tomorrow over on Knuckleduster Miniature's website tomorrow.

There's a new expansion out for Symbaroum. Yndaros - The Darkest Star takes players to a whole new place, Yndaros. There, they'll meet new challenges and new opportunities. The book contains new rules as well, along with resources for both players and GMs alike. You can pick up your copies now.

Something big is happening over in Mantic's Kings of War: Vanguard. Well... it's big, but it's also small. Dwarves are making their way into the game. We get a look at how this new faction works, along with a look at several of the figures in this preview over on Mantic's page.

Fantasy Flight has a couple more releases available for you today. Lovers of the Legend of the Five Rings can rejoice, as the new Emerald Empire book is now available. Now, they can go all sorts of fantastic places in Rokugan for themselves. Those that love the Game of Thrones Catan game can add in the 5-6 player expansion, perfect for any holiday get-togethers you might be going to. And then there's the Lord of the Rings Card Game expansion you can pick up, too.

Happy Anniversary to me. It's my 7th anniversary doing TGN. It all started back with a Plastic Warpwolf kit from Privateer Press. So much has changed since then. But I really just wanted to say thank you to all the readers out there. This job sometimes gets tough, but you all make it worth it.

Anyway, let's sink our teeth into some bite-sized gaming stories, shall we?

Today on the platter we have: Emerald Black Magic Set Releasing Tonight From Kraken Dice, Metal Dice of Ancient Dragons Up On Kickstarter, Randice: Dungeons And Dragons Character Generator Dice Set, and Dice Aurora Custom Dice Sets Up On Kickstarter.

Many people are heading to see family around this time of year. Of course, that usually means wanting to get away from your family as well. What better to sink your time into than reading a gaming magazine? And Game Nite Issue 31 is now available, just in time.

Are you a god?

Winston told us to always say, "YES!" and in True Messiah, you can make that a reality. Gain followers, sabotage your opponents, and become an actual deity. You can pick up this award-winning game now.

Petra is one of the most fantastical places on the Earth. Many of you might know it as the resting place of the Holy Grail in Indiana Jones, but the actual location is no less mystic and mesmerizing. Now, you can vicariously visit it in Passing Through Petra, a new game available now from Renegade Game Studios.

In Comanauts, players must enter the psyche of a coma patient and try and unlock him from that state. That includes going through various stages of the patient's life, including dealing with his inner child. That's just what we get a look at in this preview from Plaid Hat Games.

With the release of the 2nd edition of X-Wing from Fantasy Flight, the Resistance and the First Order are now their own factions apart from the Rebels and Imperials. And while those original factions have had their gear for a little bit now, the new factions have had to wait until now. However, the Conversion Kits, as well as some new releases are available now.

The pyramids built by the Mayans can still be found out in the jungles of Central and South America. In K'uh Nah, players will look to build their own lasting edifices, grabbing block cards and adding them to their structures. WizKids has announced that they'll be bringing this new game to tabletops soon, with pre-orders happening now.

The supernatural is attacking New York. Grab your proton packs and head out in Ecto-1 as you look to catch those ghosts. That's what you'll be doing in Ghostbusters: The Card Game, now available form Renegade Game Studios.

I'm looking to collect together a Starfinder game in the near future. While I hope to have it be all local players, if it comes to playing online, Roll20 is there. And adding to it, they've released the Alien Archive on the digital service, letting me bring in a lot more options to my game.

Just yesterday, a coworker and I were talking about where we got started in RPGs. I actually didn't start with your standard fantasy games. I started with rust-wire sci-fi tech RPGs. So, a game like Technoir takes me right back to my roots of gaming. Dream Machine Productions has announced that they'll be taking over production of the game and its release early next year.

Is this week going by slowly for anyone else, or just me? It seems like it should've been Friday by now. But waddyagonnado? I guess we're gonna just continue along. But we should also try and make your gaming tables look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Aztec Terrain From Acheson Creations and New Forest Game Mat Available From Deep-Cut Studio.

While the other day, we got a look at March's releases, these kits from Privateer Press will be hitting shelves a lot sooner. there's a new figure for Convergence of Cyriss, as well as a group of figures for Circle of Orboros. Have yourselves a look.

WizKids is bringing you more HeroClix action with their new Marvel Strike Teams game. Grab your favorite heroes and vallians and compete in a set of new scenarios. And, because they know you love expansions so much, the Marvel Strike Teams: Avengers Initiative expansion is also available now.

If you're still looking for that holiday gift for the gamer on your list, Z-Man games has a pair of new releases you can pick up now over in their webshop. They're Gen7: Breaking Point, and the new expansion for Guardians, Uprising.

Up, up and away in your beautiful, your beautiful airship!

Creating beautiful air ships and other flying objects is your object in Aerion, a new card game for 1-2 players coming from Z-Man Games.

Warlord Games is bringing a new Rick Priestley miniatures game to your tabletops tomorrow. It's called Lords of Erehwon (yes, that is "Nowhere" spelled backwards). The game's sort of a bit between skirmish and massed army, with maybe 2 dozen figures out on the field for each army, formed into loose units. Pre-orders for the rulebook start tomorrow.

Wednesday is spelled wrong.

So, while my apartment shakes and rattles from the earthquake we apparently just had, it's a good time to get some snacks in the form of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Skwadmarx Base Clips Now Available, Paladin Jean de Bouvre now on kickstarter, New Stone Slab Bases From Tabletop-Art, and Factory Rescue Dice Sale Happening at Kraken Dice.
