Board games are a social event. You bring your friends together and you game. Having games that are versitile in how many players can have a seat is good. Well, if you're a Barrage player and tired of having a friend sit out because it only seats 4, you're in luck. The 5th Player Expansion is up on Kickstarter now.

So, you want to play a railroad building game, but you don't want to have to buy a Ticket. What are you to do? Well, you could check out the different Railways games, two of which are up on Kickstarter now. Whether you want to head to the frozen land of Siberia in 1861: Railways of the Russian Empire or the frozen land of Canada in 1867: Railways of Canada, or both, you can head there now.

When you're looking to fill your day with gaming information, a gaming magazine's a great way to do that. "But I've already read all my copies!" Ah! But, Wargames Illustrated has come out with their November issue. *checks calendar* Uh, yeah. A bit early, but whatever works. You can order your copy now.

It's back around to Monday. I hope your weekend was good. Mine was. I got to see a bunch of good friends I'd not seen in a while. However, being up super-late has thrown off my schedule and made me head for a Dew to get me going again. But I'll make it. The other thing I'm going to make is your gaming tables look better.

Ok, so that link wasn't so great. I did say I was running in low gear today.

Anyway, today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Adeptus Titanicus Terrain From Forge World, Ded 'Ard Dakka Tower Available From Tabletop Scenics, and Ramshackle Fortress Available From TTCombat.

Many of you out there want to get into the gaming industry. Now, finding jobs like game designer or content creator are few and far between, but you gotta start somewhere. Perhaps getting your foot in the door through the Warehouse can work. I know of several people who've done just that. Privateer Press is looking for new Warehouse Associates, so you might just want to apply.

A new trio of box sets are available for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game from CMON. If you're looking to add a long-range punch to your Night's Watch, some armored-up members to your Free Folk, or just some terrifying foes for pretty much any army, you'll want to check them out. Also, along with that, we've got an update about some changes that are coming to the game's Game Modes and the tourney scene.

It's a Star Wars fest over at Fantasy Flight. The new Clone Wars box set for Star Wars: Legion is now available, ushering in a new era to the tabletop miniatures game. The starter and two ancillary sets are available. Also for Legion is the new Upgrade Cards pack, along with several battle mats. That's not enough? There's a new Outer Rim game mat as well, plus a new card pack for the Star Wars RPG. I told you there was a lot.

Judge Dredd is soon to be bringing justice to the streets of Mega City One. He's got his helmet. He's got his sidearm. He's got his motorcycle. All that's left are some gangs to fight. And you can pick up all of that now from Warlord Games. They're taking orders for the new Judge Dredd Miniatures Game rulebook, starter set, as well as having put together some mega-bundle deals for the game's launch. Have a look.

Two venerable chapters of the Space Marines are gettting Codex updates this week from Games Workshop. I remember back when these two were just alternate paint schemes, but they've had many updates since then, coming into their own with full support. If you're wanting to get some new Imperial Fists or Salamanders, this is an update you'll be excited about.

But even if you don't play those chapters, there's a new unit and vehicle to add to your Marine forces.

The players only have to worry about one (or maybe a few) characters. Meanwhile, the GM has to worry about literally every other person in all of existence in the world they're playing in (plus all the planes). That can be quite a task. Thankfully, there's things like the Castles & Crusades NPC Almanac here to help them out. The book is up on Kickstarter now.
