Year 2019


Neolithic Europe. There's not a lot going on, so it would seem. There's just small tribes, huddled together. But each has a dream of becoming world-conquerers. And that's just what you must build up in Era of Tribes, a new worker-placement board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

The folks at Assault Publishing are headed to Crowdfunding to get themselves set up for PMC 2670. Though, they're doing it a little different than heading to Kickstarter. They're simply taking donations on their website. You can head over to their site and donate as much as you want. And they emphasize that this is a donation, not a purchase. You won't get anything special in return. However, your donation will make the PMC 2670 book better for when it's released, for free, to the public.

Someone here... is a murderer. *gasping!*

But now you have to figure out who, and everyone has skeletons in their closet. Agatha Christie - Death on the Cards is a new card game announed by Modiphius. Players are looking to collectively solve a murder and stop the culprit from escaping. However, one of the players IS the murderer and is trying to throw everyone else off their track. Will justice be served?

The Creators might have created everything, but things have gotten out of control. Their line of rule is at an end. At least, that's what the heroes have to say about it. That's the story behind Raid Boss, a new cooperative adventure puzzle game that is up on Kickstarter now.

I am not a fashion person. I mean, I literally wear the same outfit on any particular given day of the week (I.E. - I have a "Monday outfit" and a "Tuesday outfit" and so forth). But I know a lot of people do care about how they look and go into a lot more detail about it than I do. And certainly, if Zoolander taught us anything, the world of Fashion is a high-stakes world where success or failure is just a bad hem line away. Enter Pret-a-Porter, a board game all about said fashion industry. In July (emphasis on In), Portal Games will run a Kickstarter for the 3rd edition of the game.

Looking at that tile and that cover, can this book get any more 80s/90s action movie? I really don't think so. here we have Freeway Warrior 3: The Omega Zone, the third in the solo adventure series. Hit the mean streets of a post-apocalyptic society where everyone's out for themselves, looking to grab whatever resources they can and make it out alive.

Hockey is my favorite sport. I used to play goalie back in the day, so it always has a special place in my heart. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of tabletop hockey games out there. However, soon there'll be one more. It's called Trick Shot and it's up on Kickstarter now, but like the actual NHL season, it won't be around for much longer.

There were many strange a magical creatures in the Jareth's Labyrinth. Many of them can be found in the Labyrinth board game from River Horse. And now, even more can be found, along with the man, himself, Jareth. He's part of the Fireys! expansion, available to order now. Don't lose your head over it.

I love Mondays off. You get yourself a long weekend and then a short week. So, it's a bit of a faster journey to the weekend again. I gotta admit, I did as little as possible yesterday except watch stand up comedy, and it was glorious. I hope you had a great weekend as well, no matter what you got up to. But, seeing as it's already Tuesday, that means we can hopefully speed up time a little more with some gaming podcasts to listen to.

This week on the dial we have: Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 171: Star Wars Outer Rim, Nagaraja, and Silver; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode #49: The Descent into D&D’s 2019 Announcements; Geeks of the North Episode 74: Kitbashing and scratchbuilding; Tabletop Talk Episode 22: What Faction Matches Your Play Style? M3e Matchmaker!; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 147: Gentes; and The Secret Cabal Express Episode 49: The Three Amigos Discuss Origins 2019 and Go Fandom Wild.

If you've been checking out Battlefront's social media pages lately, you'll know that they've been counting down to the Late War push they'll be making with Flames of War. Along with that, they're going to come out with new bundle deals. So you can know what you're getting ahead of type (and get properly hyped), they've posted up just what those deals will consist of. Have a look.

Sure, most people know about Santa Claus, but there's a whole ton of other myths and legends surrounding Christmas, many of them a bit freaky and scary. Well, the new fantasy RPG, 'Twas, brings them to your tabletops. The new game is up on Kickstarter now.

Oh deer, oh deer, oh deer. While Legend of the Five Rings has several major houses that you probably know about, there are numerous lesser houses that also exist in Rokugan. In this preview, we get a look at the newest, the Deer Clan. They'll be coming out in the Courts of Stone supplement for the Legend of the Five Rings RPG. Let's check 'em out.

A new ship will be steaming its way into the waters of Cruel Seas soon. It's the Imperial Japanese Navy IJN No. 101-class landing ship. It'll will be coming out in June, but Warlord Games is giving you a look at it now.

The American Football season is several months away still, but the off-season is when teams make trades, train up, learn new drills, and get prepped. And you can too, as there's a new Blood Bowl team about to hit the pitch. It's the Halflings. Have yourself a look.

Ogre brutes with cybernetic implants. Hacker elves with digital sockets in their head. Dragons. Shadowrun's a setting different from most. In this preview, we get a look at what's happening in the 6th World in the upcoming 6th edition of the game.

In the distant future, mankind is just coming out from the War of the Five Factions. However, the devastation has left few resources, so more combat is sure to occur. In Two Robots, a new card game coming to Kickstarter soon, players take on the role of builders. They are trying to gather parts to create two robots (oooh, now I get the name...) or to eliminate their opposition.

I hate to say that I've yet to actually get a ton of Chinese food and watch kung-fu movies like I've said I was going to do for the past several weekends. I really need to get on that. And I should also get in on backing Hearts of Wulin, a new wuxia-inspired RPG that runs on the Apocalypse engine. The game is full of melodrama and great fights and it's up on Kickstarter now.

When a Kickstarter only lasts a week, there's a chance that you might miss out on it (heck, if it runs for a month, you still might miss out on it). But never fear! Steamforged has started taking late pledges for Devil May Cry: The Bloody Palace. You can still get all the extras and exclusives if you hurry.

It's Friiiiiiiiidaaaaaaaaaaay! Woo! Just a couple hours and it'll be the weekend. I'm pumped (if you couldn't tell). I'm all set for some D&D tomorrow. But before that, I need to get some more energy via some snack-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Astro Witch Added To Free Mini Offer From Victoria Miniatures, Veteran Tech Troopers Available Now From Puppets War, .

Here's one that I know has been highly anticipated since it was announced. Free League Publishing will open up pre-orders for their official Alien RPG tomorrow. Head out into space with your crew and try to avoid getting too close to any funny-looking eggs.

Charlie: Bart?
Bart: What?
Charlie: Am I wrong? Or is the Dark Side Rising?
Bart: I don't know. But whatever it is, I'm gonna play it.

USAopoly has announced Star Wars: Dark Side Rising, a new cooperative card and dice game that'll be hitting store shelves sometime Q3.

If you want to celebrate all things Privateer Press, there's no better place to do so than at Lock & Load. It's just under a month away, and Privateer has posted up a little taste of what you can expect when you head over to the show.

It's getting to be almost 100 degrees here in GA this week. It really makes me long for those cool days back when I lived in Chicago. There, one could possibly get use out of a pair of snowshoes. Not so much here. But I can still live vicariously through my little mans, including the new Battle on Snowshoes set for Black Powder that's available from Warlord Games now.

It's been a couple months, but some new releases have now come available from CMON. There's 6 (really 7) new releases for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game, as well as the new Wacky Races: The Board Game. You can pick up all of these now at your LGS.

Iron GM Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Grimmerspace, their new sci-fi/horror RPG setting that utilizes the Starfinder rules set. As you can tell from the name, Grimmerspace is not a nice, friendly, shiny sci-fi setting. It's a lot more dark, dirty, and dangerous. And, I mean, it was co-developed by Sean Astin. Yes, that Sean Astin (You know... Sam from Lord of the Rings).
