Both the core game as well as this new expansion are up on Kickstarter now.

The evil queen has imprisoned a young girl in her castle. While trying to escape, the little girl came across a robot that she could control with a mysterious pendant. Will the little girl and her robot companion escape? That's up to you to decide in The Girl and the Robot, a new card game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Stronghold was Portal Games' first big hit. They then created the Undead expansion, but only made 1000 of them. Now, they're headed back to the game that put them on the map, but are doing it in a whole new way. Stronghold: Undead is a new standalone version of their popular game. Can you hold off the masses of undead coming to take over the keep? They're going to fund the game via Kickstarter, but want to get your feedback on the campaign before it goes live.

Pretty much all of us at some point have been in an email chain at work and despite describing in detail what you needed or were working on, someone comes back with questions or comments that you very clearly addressed in your last message. So, you do your best to say, "Obvioulsly, you didn't read anything I said" without actually saying, "Obviously, you didn't read anything I said." Well, that is now a party card game up on Kickstarter now called Per My Last Email.

It's the crime of the century. Dr. Moriarty has been working at it and now his plans are being put into motion. However, as always, there's Sherlock Holmes right on his trail. It's the final 12 hours, and in the end, either the crime will be committed or thwarted. Who will win? That's what you're going to find out in Clash of Minds: Holmes vs. Moriarty, a new card game that's up on Kickstarter now.

The monsters are in the castle. The villagers have stocked up on torches and pitchforks. It's going to be a battle to the end. However, in Village Attacks, the players take on the role of the monsters defending their home, rather than the villagers trying to purge the evil from the land. Grimlord Games is looking to expand their hit game with a new expansion, Grim Dynasty. It's up on Kickstarter now.

Most kingdom-building board games have you working against the other players as each of you tries to claim resources, build your civilization, and conquer territory. Aeolis is differen't. It's a cooperative game where everyone is working together to make the best civilization that you can. This new board game is up on Kickstarter now.

Longtime TGN readers know that I'm a fan of heavy metal music. I'm listening to my metal Spotify list as I type this up. Most people know that lots of heavy metal songs and imagery have to deal with demons and the forces of evil. Well, in Gods of Metal: The Chosen, you're using the power of METAL to defeat demons that are trying to take over the world. The deck-building game is up on Kickstarter now.

The week is trundling along. It's not the slowest of weeks, but it's not going by quickly either. Feels like it should at least be Thursday afternoon by now. And yet, here we are, only partway through Wednesday. It's alright, because time will eventually march along and we'll get back to the weekend. In the meantime, I'm feeling a little peckish, so let's get into some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Burrows & Badgers Fantasy Figures Up On Kickstarter, Kraken Dice 2-day Dice Market Sale Happening Now, and From Kadath Horror Figures Up On Kickstarter.

As I've stated before, there's no such thing as too many resources for GMs to draw from when planning their games. NPCs, World-guides, and enemies. So, so, sooooooo many enemies. Fight This Mutant is a new resource for D20 games that has over 80 pages worth of new baddies for the players to take on. The game book is up on Kickstarter now.

After a strange meteor storm, people began finding strange crystals all over. By combining these crystals in different ways, scientists were able to make leaps and bounds in technological knowledge. But the crystals were few and far-between. But with the advances in tech, more have been found on Jupiter's moons. Now, the race is on to go and get them. That's the story behind Galilean Moons, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Many of my friends have kids. Many of those kids are just getting to the age where they want to join mommy and daddy in their game nights. However, going full-on into a regular adventure might be a bit much for them. Thankfully, there's more kid-oriented and family-friendly gaming adventures out there all the time. One such is The Legend of Gimcrack Jack, a new fantasy adventure for 5th Edition that's up on Kickstarter now.

Many of you have been waiting, and now the wait is over. Corvus Belli has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Infinity Defiance, their new cooperative sci-fi miniatures board game. Head into the Infinity universe like never before, work together, complete objectives, and make sure that you're alive in the end.

A Time for Sacrifice is a new set of adventures coming out for Call of Cthulhu 7th edition that's up on Kickstarter now. New Comet Games is looking to create adventures that are 50% bigger than the average adventure set for the game. They've got everything just about ready to go, but things need those final touches, and that's what they're looking to fund via their campaign.

Dragons. Sure, they're huge and destructive, but don't you want one of your own? I know I want a dozen, myself. But getting dragon eggs isn't easy. You'll need help. But be careful, anyone who's willing to go steal dragon eggs is also willing to stab you in the back to get more. That's what's happening in League of Infamy, the new sometimes-cooperative dungeon crawl board game from Mantic. The game's up on Kickstarter now.

Just because a new edition of a game comes out doesn't mean that everyone gives up the older edition. There are many out there that still play and enjoy them. Take Pathfinder, for example. If you've got a group that's been playing for a while, you might want to stick with the 1st edition. Or, you might just not like what 2nd edition brought. Either way, it also doesn't mean that nothing new will come out for the game. Take, for example, Ascension Games' Path of the Wilds book that's up on Kickstarter now.

Against the Darkmaster is a new fantasy RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. The game doesn't fit into any specific fantasy setting, but more goes for the epic fantasy of Sagas. If you like grand adventures with characters overcoming great odds to beat a nefarious evil that's threatening all of existence, then this is the RPG for you.

It's Monday again. ... Anyone else having trouble getting this week going? I seem to be at that phase. I mean. I woke up and now I'm here typing up news stories... but yeah... I hope I can get things rolling here soon.

Anyway, seeing as it's Monday, we should probably try and make your gaming tables look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Temple of Chaos Terrain Up On Kickstarter and Isometric Map-Making Software Up On Kickstarter.

Medieval, Tales from Europe is a new setting book for Dungeons & Dragons that's coming to Kickstarter in December. The idea is to take the game and put it in something that's relatively historically accurate. It's not 100% realistic, but it is extremely low-magic and there's only 1 race: Humans. But there's still adventure elements, as it takes a bit more fairy-tale look at things. So, your whole game won't just be, "wake up, farm, hope you don't die of starvation or disease, go to bed."

I mainly play Bards in D&D. As such, I'm primarily a spellcaster. I'm constantly on the lookout for new spells that I can possibly add to my repertoire. The ones in the PHB are nice... but it'd be nice to have more options. Thankfully, that's exactly what you get with Deep Magic, a new 5th edition magic supplement that's up on Kickstarter now from Kobold Press.

The human race is destined to spread out among the stars. Soon, we'll have the energy and capability to make other planets home. In Beyond Humanity: Colonies, players are looking to make a new colony on a far-away world. They must work together to do so... at least somewhat. There's still plenty of competition to be had for who will do the most for this fledgling civilization. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

The idea of getting married just for love is actually a pretty new thing in the world, generally speaking. For much of history and in much of the world, arranged marriages were the way to go. Be it for alliances or business dealings, others tended to be in control of who you got married to. Such is the case in Zestrea, the marriage negotiating card game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Time once again for the Giant Robot Alert to go off. This time around, it's Alpha Mecha. This sci-fi skirmish game of huge robots battling it out is as quick to learn as it is to play. And if you're a fan of digital forms for game books, you're in luck. They've got a PDF version of that up on Kickstarter now.

The world's come to an end. Damnit, Carl, I told you to stay away from those buttons! Now, we've got to fight the other survivors for the meager supplies that are left. Good thing we've been playing a lot of RONE (Races of New Era) and got that Rone: Complete Edition as well as the new The Last Stand expansion that they had on Kickstarter before the bombs fell. What's that? That's still in the future? The Kickstarter is still going on now? Well, I guess we should practice.

You know what that means. It's a Giant Robot Alert. This time, it's being triggered by Valkyrie, a new solo miniatures combat board game that's up on Kickstarter. Even if everyone else wasn't able to make it to game night, you can still get some tactical miniatures action piloting your giant mech around, completing missions in a collected campaign.
