Sure, when you're playing an RPG, the focus is just on the PCs, but what about all the other things going on in the kingdoms/realms? How do those work? And what happens if someone does become ruler of the land? That's where a supplement like Kingdoms & Warfare comes in. It's a new guide for 5th Edition that's up on Kickstarter now. Find out about running a kingdom and even fighting wars to expand your territory.

You can check out this new game on Kickstarter now.
There's nothing more relaxing than taking a stroll around a lovely koi pond, maybe tossing some little food pellets at all the beautiful fish inside, watching their colors shimmer under the water along with beautiful water flowers and decorative elements.

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.

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.

The game is up on Kickstarter now.
Of course, you know I'm excited. The weekend's here and I'm ready to let my hair down and relax. I might sort through my dice collection.

The Zorro Dice Game.
It's all pretty self-explanatory right in the title, isn't it? Roll dice, gather iconic equipment of the masked swashbuckler, defend the defenseless people of the village, and duel the evil boss behind it all.

Explore, build, quest, form or break alliances, it's a little bit of everything.
Earth. I mean, sure, it's a pretty good place to have a home. I've got one here. But what about off-planet? There's some pretty good realestate out there. But you've gotta act fast, otherwise someone else might take up residence where you want. That's the story behind Cosmic Colonies, a new board game from Floodgate Games that's up on Kickstarter now.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a paleontologist. I'm sure many of you did as well. Dinosaurs are just inherently cool.

Grab your shovel and get going!
Having pre-made adventures just makes running a gaming group that much easier. The GM just has to open up to the right page and away you go, altering it as you go if necessary to fit your group.

It just seems dirty. The card game is up on Kickstarter now.
Gamelyn Games is known for their Tiny Epic line. Now, it's time to add another. This time around, it's Dinosaurs.
