Year 2019


Stranded here on Earth, the aliens are slowly trying to get fuel for their ship. In the meantime, tensions are high as they're restricted to a certain area. But how will humans and aliens continue to get along? That's for you to figure out in the District 9 board game from Weta Workshop that's up on Kickstarter now.

If you had the ability to terraform a planet, how would you make it look? Tons of forests? Giant oceans? Rolling plains? Soaring mountains? Well, in Myraclia, you get to create your own planet. Well, not just your own. Others are looking to create their own paradise as well. But, in the end, only one's vision of the planet will be achieved. This new terraforming game is up on Kickstarter now.

Winter is coming.

I realize that's the tag line for an entirely different fantasy world, but it's what's going on here, too. Free League Publishing is running a Kickstarter campaign for The Bitter Reach, their new (and massive) expansion for the Forbidden Lands RPG. What does it have in its 200+ pages? New rules, new monsters, new encounters, and an entire campaign set in the cold reaches of a new region. The new book is up on Kickstarter now.

It's Friday the 13th. It's also a full moon.

Be careful out there, everyone. O,o

In the meantime, I'm going to hunker in my bear cave and munch on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Elder Wood Running Spellbook Minis Dice and Miniatures Boxes Kickstarter, Handmade Zodiac Gemstone Dice Up On Kickstarter, Bloodstone Dice Up On Kickstarter, Vacant Realms Steampunk and Fantasy Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, and 5mm Metal Micro Dice Up On Kickstarter.

When you want to fill up your day with gaming information, a gaming magazine is a great way to do it (besides coming here, of course). "But I've already read all the issues I have!" I hear you exclaim. Well, Game Nite Magazine just posted up issue 39. So, there you go. As always, it's filled with awesome articles and it's free. So, why not go grab yourself a copy?

For protection? Protection from what? Ze Germans?
*looks at the new releases from Battlefront for Flames of War*
Oh, s---. Ok, maybe "Ze Germans" are here already. You can pick up some new reinforcements for your German D-Day forces now over in the Battlefront webshop or at your local LGS.

Do you look around at civilization and go, "pfft, I could do better"? Well, now's your chance to prove it in Hadara. Will you focus on war? Religion? Philosophy? The Arts? Probably a bit of all of the above in some form. In this article, Z-Man Games takes a dive into Hadara and shows of just how building your own civilization works.

So, Pathfinder 2nd Edition's been out for a little over a month. You've maybe thought about picking it up, but haven't been sure. And if you did, where would you start? Or maybe you're a GM looking to get a group interested in this new version. Where do you begin? Well, Paizo is here to help. They've posted up a free-to-download Demo Adventure to help people get right into the game.

I mean, I like rain. I like storms. But I'm not really thrilled when they cause huge amounts of damage, I.E. - become Ruinstorms. But that's just what you're getting to order from Forge World this week. There's new Ruinstorm Daemon Brutes that you can get for your 40k Horus Heresy armies. Place your orders now.

Pretty much all of us carry around a little supercomputer in our pockets. We've got stats that show that most of you are reading this sentence on a portable supercomputer now. Why not integrate them into the party games that you play when you get together with friends? That's the thought behind Game of Phones, a party game that's been redesigned and is back up on Kickstarter now.

The next in the Omen Saga of cards games from Kolossal Games is up on Kickstarter now. Omen: Heir to the Dunes, as one would expect, takes you to the mythical land of ancient Egypt. Anubis and Horus are about to go to war to see which will reign supreme, light or dark.

Though I'm kinda partial to dark, I guess it'd be good to still have light around, too.

The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Well, the world's come to an end again. Damnit, Karl, I told you to stop messing around with those vials. Anyway, now that society has crumbled, we need to make it in the radioactive wasteland. Good thing we played a whole bunch of Fistful of Lead: Wasteland Warriors before the fall. And you can, too, as this new expansion for Fistful of Lead is available now.

The point of games is to have fun. Otherwise, we're just people sitting around playing pretend with convoluted rules for no reason. During your RPG sessions, topics can come up that won't always sit well with others. So, how does one approach such topics, and how do GMs make sure that what they're running works for everyone? That's what Consent in Gaming, a new book from Monte Cook Games looks at. You can pick up your copies now.

Yesterday tried to take a while. It really did. The first half of the day, I remember going, "Wait, it's not even 9 yet?" However, things eventually picked up. I hope your Wednesday was good, too. Now we're here at Weekend Eve Eve. I'm still pumped for the weekend. Got D&D coming up. Hopefully you have some gaming planned. But even if you don't, we need to get your gaming table looking good. Quick TC today, so let's get to it.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Miner's Guild Pitch Available From Deep-Cut Studio

I don't trust the ocean. You'll never see me on a beach, about to go diving in. I mean, sure there's all the terrible polution that's pretty bad. But there's also all those monstrous sea creatures out there. I'm with Billy Connally, we don't belong in there. Sure, these are only miniatures from AntiMatter Games, but how can we know that they don't actually live out there and are just waiting for me to dip my toe in? Eh?

Plaid Hat Games is really thrilled about their upcoming Aftermath adventure book game, and they want you to be just as excited. As such, they're giving you all sorts of looks into how the game works. In this article, we check out the Action cards. They kinda look like a souped-up deck of regular playing cards, and I'm totally all for that.

You ever have that dream where you're in school and you're taking a test and you don't even know what class you're in? That's not 100% what's going on in Dungeon Academy, but you are in school and you are taking a test. But this isn't some Scantron-thing. Nope. You've got to traverse your way through a real dungeon. Will you graduate with top honors?

Zombicide 2nd Edition is coming to Kickstarter very soon. But where did it all begin? I actually remember being here on TGN when that first campaign launched. Back then, we weren't 100% sure how we were going to do coverage for these new-fangled "crowd funding" things. Different times, for sure. In this first part of the series, CMON looks back at the first 3 seasons of Zombicide and how the game changed during that time.

"Crashed escape pod? PB, shouldn't that go in the Terrain Corner?"

If it were just a crashed escape pod piece of terrain, yes, it would. However, Fantasy Flight is giving you more than that in this Star Wars: Legion expansion box. You are also getting figures for C-3PO and R2-D2, along with stat cards for using them both in Rebel as well as Republic forces. Hence, full regular post. Let's take a look.

Ancient Greece. It was a hotbed of new ideas and ways of thinking, with many philosophers coming into their own whose names would go down with history. Philosophia, a new sandbox board game up on Kickstarter, takes you to that ancient time and asks you how you would spread your new ideas around the region.

I love pancakes. Hell, just the other day, I made a huge-ass one for breakfast. They're so light, fluffy, and tasty. And you can prepare them with all sorts of extras. From different types of fruit, to nuts, and chocolate. Though keeping all the orders right when you're a cook might be rough. But that's just what you'll have to do in Flapjack Flipout, a new family dexterity game that's up on Kickstarter now.

The party comes across a strange bottle. It's got some strange liquid in there, obviously a potion of some kind. But what kind of potion? Sure, there's the regular healing potions and such, but that's so mundane. Why not really go out there with it? That's what the Book of Unusual Potions helps with. The book's up on Kickstarter now.

Being one of the bigger announcements from Gen Con, Fantasy Flight is bringing out Marvel Champions, a new LCG based on Marvel comics characters. While we don't normally cover LCGs, we figured that having coverage of such a hot property at least to its initial release was ideal. As such, we present Fantasy Flight's preview of the upcoming Captain America Hero Pack.

Halfway there. We're halfway back to the weekend. And even though this is a full week, as opposed to last week's shortened week, it already feels like it's going by much faster. That's not a complaint, mind you. Especially since this weekend includes D&D. If I'm going to have the energy to keep trucking along, I need to top off with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Vesuvius Media Running Tokens and Coins Kickstarter, CNC Machined Brass Dice Up On Kickstarter, and Kraken's Weekly Price Drop Now Live.

Jingle bears! Jingle bears! Jingle all the bears! *jinglejinglejingle*

What's that? You're not ready for the holiday season yet? it's not even actually Autumn yet? Well, that doesn't mean we can't start looking ahead to December. Privateer Press is, showing off their upcoming releases. Get your holiday list ready now.
