CMON


While a lot of us are working from home or on a... unscheduled break from work, we're spending a lot of time bored. Well, one thing that I know peps a lot of people up is a good Kickstarter campaign. CMON's next is just around the corner. They've announced an April 14th launch date for Ankh: Gods of Egypt. Mark your calendars (or Steve or Laura your calenders, if you prefer).

Ankh is the next board game that's coming to Kickstarter from CMON. It's the third in the series of games created by the people that also brought you Blood Rage and Rising Sun. Egypt is moving to a monotheistic society and the gods are fighting to see who that single deity will be. The game will be on the platform on April 14th.

It's the fi-nal de-fense! *doodle-doo-doo! doodle-doot-doot-doo!*

CMON continues their weekly tradition of new scenarios for Zombicide (I mean, tell me that this wasn't a good year to have started that plan, amirite?). This time around, they're headed back to fantasy realms with Black Plague. There's nothing standing between the Survivors and a huge mass of undead. Who will win?

The Starcadian Alliance was supposed to bring peace and order to the galaxy. And it worked! Hooray! However, not everyone wanted to join in on the celebration. Supreme Commander Thorne was like, "That's all stupid. You're stupid. I want to be in charge!" and so he got together a bunch of different minion races and have invaded! Oh no! Thankfully, the Starcadian Alliance is full of heroic crews that want to take the fight right back to him... and each other. That's the story behind Starcadia Quest, the new stand-alone game in the Arcadia Quest family that's available now from CMON.

With many people in their homes, there's more changes than ever to get a game night in. But what if you've already played through all the scenarios you've got? Well, here's another for you. CMON has posted up The Cure, a new scenario for Massive Darkness.

We're not supposed to go out. And many of you have possibly already run through your gallery of games. So, what do you do now? Well, if you're a fan of cooperative deck-building games, you can check out the print-and-play version of Xenoshyft that CMON has posted up online. No going out required.

When the Fantasy Fair comes to town, the city's population swells as fairy tale characters from all over come for the festivities. However, there's only one Inn in town and they'll all have to find a spot. The two innkeepers have placed a bet between the two of them: who can better-place all the guests in their inn? That's what you'll be doing in Fairy Tale Inn, a new board game coming soon from CMON.

CMON continues putting out a new Zombicide scenario each week, going through all the different genres of the game and using parts from all the different expansions. This time around, it's from classic Zombicide with the Rue Morgue expansion attached. You can get this new scenario for free now.

There's a million reasons someone might miss out on a Kickstarter campaign. Maybe you just didn't have the funds at the moment. Or you set a reminder, but missed it. Just because the clock's run out doesn't mean that you've missed out on it all if the campaign allows Late Pledges. That's just what we've got here for Marvel United.

With the end of the Marvel United Kickstarter campaign, it's CMON's tradition to go ahead and announce which game they'll be doing next. In this case, it's one that they originally announced during Gen Con last year. Ankh is the next game in the Eric Lang-helmed line of games that includes Blood Rage and Rising Sun. This time, they're headed to the ancient land of Egypt as the different gods fight it out to see which one will be the sole deity of the region.

A really nice sword, crossbow, or sling are good to have around when the zombie apocalypse comes. However, if you've got access to a trebuchet, that's just that much better. But getting and securing one isn't easy, as you'll find out in the Secure the Trebuchet scenario that CMON has released for Green Horde. You can download it for free now.

Foot soldiers and cavalry and bears! Oh my! That's what we've got this round in terms of new releases for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. Bloody Mummer Skirmishers, Baratheon Wardens, Dothraki Screamers, and Free Folk Skinchangers are all now available to add to your armies in your quest to take over the Iron Throne of Westeros.

The Dothraki are effectively born riding a horse. They are equestrians of the highest caliber, with even their main troops being cavalry. If you're looking to add some more thundering hooves to your House Targaryen forces in the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game, you don't have long to wait. The Dothraki Screamers box will be hitting shelves tomorrow. But before you head down to the LGS, you can find out what they're capable of in this article.

Poison dart frogs. Caterpillars. Certain berries. Sea slugs. What do all of these have in common? They "dress up" in very loud, bright colors to let you know just how dangerous they are. That's the same thing the Bloody Mummers do. They head to battle in bright, garish clothing. They're also very dangerous. Soon, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game players will be able to add this unit to their forces. But what do they do? Let's take a look.

Everyone's friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will soon be swinging his way onto your tabletops in Marvel United. CMON is showing off the upcoming Enter the Spider-Verse expansion where you can get your hands on Peter Parker's original version, Miles Morales' update, and Spider-Gwen's skilled version as well. All that while the Green Goblin flies overhead.

House Baratheon technically currently occupies the Iron Throne, with Joffrey Baratheon being seated there. However, Renly and Stannis, brothers of the now-dead Robert, are looking to take it for themselves, removing the Lannister influence entirely. They're headed to war and are bringing House Baratheon's large military with them. The mainline troops of that army are the Baratheon Wardens. Soon, players in the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game will be able to bulk up their forces with this unit's stand-alone box. Let's take a look at what they'll be getting.

The survivors on PK-L7 include a lot of military personnel. They've been training for years to become the best of the best. But what if they want to become the best of the best of the best? That's where extra training comes in. And while it's dangerous to draw in Xenos, only having experience in direct action with the enemy is enough to level up to a super soldier. And that's what you'll be doing in this new Zombicide: Invader scenario.

Marvel United looks to bring the action of the Marvel universe to your tabletops. Considering the amount of heroes and villains out there, it's no surprise that there's plenty of room for expansion. This time, we're heading to Africa and the country of Wakanda where they country's vast vibranium and technological resources are being threatened. Check out the Rise of the Black Panther expansion below.

They might be the most random set of superheroes to ever join a group together. You've got a guy stolen from Earth. You've got a talking not-raccoon (only call him one if you want to be blown up). And then there's a walking, sentient tree that can only say one sentence asserting his own name. They're (some of) the Guardians of the Galaxy, and they're coming to Marvel United. Have a look at what will be in this new expansion.

Well, I know what faction I'd be playing if I got into the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. The Free Folk are getting a bear. Multiple bears, in fact. Granted, it's not a full bear faction like I've been wanting in games forever, but it's something. The Skinchangers box set is different than most Unit Attachments in that it's more than just a single figure that comes with it. Have yourself a look at how this unique set works.

Another week, another new Zombicide scenario. This time, the virus that causes zombies has mutated once again, creating an entirely new monster roaming the streets, even more fearsome and destructive than the dreaded Abominations. Will the Survivors be able to take it down?

From one Marvel game to another. CMON has posted up a preview of another expansion for the Marvel United card game. This time, players are headed to the land of the Norse gods, making their way to Asgard. There, Loki is up to his tricks (it's what he's the god of, after all). Have a look at this new set and find out if there's a traitor in the ranks.

Tomorrow, we'll get the next full batch of updates for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. If you're like me, whenever a game you play is getting updated, you're chomping at the bit for every bit of info you can get. Will your favorite units change? Will a unit that gives you trouble get updated? What's going to happen in the meta? Well, to help out some, CMON has another preview of what changes will be coming, along with a look forward at the game after those updates hit the street.

Earth's greatest heroes are teaming up to fight some of its most nefarious foes. Marvel United is the new board game from CMON and Spin Masters where players must work together to defeat an evil foe from the Marvel universe. Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, and more head to your tabletops. The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now.
