"Aw hell..." is exactly what you should say when you check out the Return to Planet Apocalypse Kickstarter campaign that Petersen Games is running. They've got new expansions available to add to your game as well as a new 5th Edition D&D supplement so you can not only fight these horrors as a board game, but as an RPG as well. Go have a look.
From the campaign:
Planet Apocalypse was designed by Sandy Petersen, one of the best-known designers in horror gaming. In the early eighties he wrote the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game for Chaosium. In the nineties, he was a key designer for the ground-breaking video games Doom, Doom 2, and Quake. And in 2015, he released Cthulhu Wars. Now he returns to the topic of apocalyptic horror with a game Shut Up and Sit Down described as "[having] cemented Sandy Petersen as the king of games where you roll dice and things die."
This Kickstarter offers two separate tabletop experiences:
The board game (core game reprint) with new expansions.
A 325+ role-playing book for 5th edition D&D with TONS of content to bring the apocalypse to your fantasy world, plus new adventures, monsters and more.
The campaign's more than 6x funded with 13 days left to go.
WWII was a pretty bad time to be a soldier. But the danger of coming upon an enemy patrol or a sudden offensive pales in comparison to being overrun by dinosaurs! Dinosaur 1944 is a new cooperative defense game from Peteresen Games where players control army men versus an onslaught of giant behemoths. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Dinosaur: 1944 is a cooperative strategy game about army men vs. prehistoric monsters. In it, you and up to 3 other players control brave soldiers in a World War II setting, struggling to save the entire world from the threat of a Mesozoic rebirth. It is in part a battle game, as you maneuver around the map and fight the enemy. It is in part tower defense, as you place ambushes to help take out or slow down the incoming fiends. Each hero has unique strengths and weaknesses – your victory depends both in mastering your own hero and cooperating with your friends.
As the game progresses, you face more numerous foes and dinosaur bosses enter the field. Eventually you face the final boss – defeating her wins the game. Beware: if the dinosaurs devastate your base camp, you’ll be stranded on Kyuryu Jima, prey to the horrors therein.
The game's about 1.5x funded with only 9 days left to go.
From the campaign:
Cthulhu Wars’ original Kickstarter campaigns launched in 2013 and 2015 to stellar success. If you’re already a fan, now is the time to complete your collection!
If you have been waiting for the opportunity to get in on Cthulhu Wars, this is your best opportunity!
Cthulhu Wars is a competitive strategy game in which 2 to 8 players face-off to determine the fate of the planet. You'll recruit cultists and summon monsters, cast spells, open interdimensional gates, and awaken your colossal unearthly Great Old One!
Every game is different - as you play, you unlock new spellbooks, giving new amazing powers unique to each faction. Play is asymmetric - every faction has a unique set of rules and victory conditions.
The core game offers an asymmetric, two to four player strategy experience (up to eight players with expansions). Each player controls a faction of cosmic evil competing with its rivals for the remains of the defeated, dying Earth. Players push and battle each other to control areas, build gates, gain power, achieve personal goals, and unlock special abilities in the form of spellbooks to render their own faction supreme. The miniatures are conspicuously monstrous, appealing and evocative.
The Kickstarter campaign is already more than 4x funded with still 27 days left to go.
So, what can you expect in this sanity-stretching book? Lots, actually. There's over 100 monsters to send at your players, including many (over half) that have never had rules in Pathfinder before. Even those that have been seen before are getting a "Mythos Makeover." That is, they've had their rules updated to fit in with the others. There's also creatures that are sort of "Mythos Adjacent." They're not really part of the mythos, but probably could be. There's also new plot hooks and campaign jumping-on points to get your players headed in the right direction. Plus, Sandy helps out if you've never run an horror-style RPG before. If you're going to find out how to do it, might as well find out from one of the best.
The campaign's just underway and is already more than 3x funded and working through stretch goals. It's set to last another 29 days.
Saturday! Saturday! Saturday!
Saturday night's alright for fightin'! (as long as it's fighting battles out on the tabletop. Don't actually go out and get into fights, people)
When this posts, I'll be hanging out with Shaughn, our warehouse manager/resident tattoo artist, getting myself my 2nd tattoo. Should be good times.
Anyway, while I have some ink permanently injected into my skin, you can check out some game reviews.
This week our review/preview products include: Seven Card Samurai, 7 Wonders: Duel, King Chocolate, Sentinels of the Multiverse: Vengeance, Twilight Struggle Collector's Edition, Nippon, The Best Treehouse Ever, T.I.M.E. Stories, Bermuda Crisis: Discovery Dawning, Sheriff of Nottingham, Cthulhu Wars, Soldiers of God, Space Crusade, Concordia, Abyss, and Dark Stories.
Tokyo Hold ‘Em (A Review of Seven Card Samurai)
Akira Kurosawa (1910-1998) was a famed and prolific Japanese filmmaker. Noted for masterpieces such as Drunken Angel, Seven Samurai and Yojimbo, his movies were technical marvels and explored gritty themes surrounding the master-student relationship, heroes, man’s struggles against nature and of course violence. They were also grueling to make. Filming lasted hours and hours with abundant downtime for cast and crew. So they demanded entertainment between takes and other tasks. So Kurosawa invented this card game, Seven Card Samurai.
Three’s a Crowd (a review of 7 Wonders: Duel)
7 Wonders: Duel is a drafting/tableau building game for two players. Players collect cards to advance their civilizations. The player who achieves military or scientific superiority or who scores the most victory points is the winner.
Vats of Victory (a review of King Chocolate)
King Chocolate is a tile-laying/production chain game for two to five players. Players are chocolatiers striving to earn money through controlling various steps in the chocolate-making process. The player with the most money wins.
He Tasks Me, and I Shall Have Him (A Review of Sentinels of the Multiverse: Vengeance)
You’ve played Sentinels of the Multiverse before, right? You should probably check out our review if you haven’t, but here’s a quick summary: one villain. Four (or five, or three) heroes. The villain takes a turn, which is automated, and involves drawing a card from the villain deck and activating any available powers. Then, each hero player gets a turn to play one card and use one power. Each superhero has a unique set of abilities that allow them to attack enemies, defend themselves and their allies, and provide buffs and boosts to the team. The game ends when all the heroes are defeated, OR when the supervillain is destroyed. That’s it in a nutshell.

Board Game Quest:
T.I.M.E. Stories Review
Recently, young publishers Space Cowboys released a game called TIME Stories. This rather unique board game borrows from the premise of these great movies and sends players through a looping series of games. In TIME Stories, players are temporal agents who travel back in time to accomplish a specific mission. However, unless you are very lucky, chances are it will take you more than one game to achieve your goals. Does this looping mechanic work on our tabletop? Let’s dive in and find out.
TIME Stories is a Cooperative deduction game for 2-4 players that takes about 60-90 minutes to play. In my experience, TIME Stories plays best with 4 players.
Bermuda Crisis: Discovery Dawning Preview
Today we are going to look at a new tabletop game currently in funding on Kickstarter. Bermuda Crisis: Discovery Dawning is a game for 2-4 players that plays in about an hour.
The game uses a resource management system and technology tree for players to explore the island of Bermuda and discover interesting powers and artifacts that can be used throughout the game. The game can also feature a healthy dose of player negotiating if players hope to be successful.
Sheriff of Nottingham Review
Prince John is going to Nottingham! Players take the roles of merchants to gain profits by selling goods in the city while Prince is here. But at first, players must get their goods through the city gate which is guarded by the Sheriff of Nottingham. Will you play it safe with legal goods and make a profit or risk everything and sneak past with illicit goods? Be careful because Sheriff is watching for liars all the time and he can take your goods for himself!
Will you be able to make a deal with the Sheriff or will you persuade him to inspect another player while you quietly go through gate? It’s time for you to become strategy-minded merchant and get rich!
Cthulhu Wars Review
Cthulhu Wars – is a strategy board game published by «Green Eye Games» where players have an opportunity to become the alien race and god taken from the Cthulhu mythos created by H. P. Lovecraft. This game is quite large and includes 64 miniatures of cultists, monsters, aliens and Great Old Ones that differs in height from 20 mm to almost 180 mm. Main designer of this piece of horror is Sandy Petersen. The artworks have been created by Richard Luong.
Meeples & Miniatures:
Soldiers of God Review
Soldiers of God is designed for playing tabletop battles during the period of the Crusades. The book is in A5 format, is printed on high quality, glossy paper and comes complete with a deck of action cards to play the game – so the first thing to say is that the book looks great. It contains photographs of nicely painted miniatures, both to illustrate rules and as eye candy.
Space Crusade - A Retro Review
Nostalgia is a powerful thing. How you remember the games that you played many years ago can be very different from the reality. They were the games that defined your history in gaming so you place them upon a pedestal.
Space Crusade is one such game. It introduced me to the Warhammer 40,000 universe, opened my eyes to the world of tactical miniatures games and cemented my love of hobby board games. But is it any good, or do the rose tinted glasses of nostalgia obscure the reality?
A new Space hulk has been discovered by the Imperium of Man, and the chances of a millenniums old spaceship appearing from the warp and not be filled with the agents of Chaos is quite frankly next to zero so you take the role of a squad of Space Marines from either the Blood Angels, Ultramarine or Imperial Fists chapter, while another player controls the alien menace occupying the ancient space ship and blast the crap out of each other.
Shut Up & Sit Down:
Could this be the end for Shut Up & Sit Down? The year has barely started and yet it already seems that Quinns is... is leaving us? For a board game? Have any of you seen him? Please get in touch!
Face it, this was inevitable. We all knew the day would come. But why, of all games, was it Concordia? What's so special about it? And how will Matt and I cope with the news? (Clue: WE WON'T.)
Play Board Games:
In Abyss you must gain ally cards to recruit lords and locations for Victory Points. This game has a blend of press your luck, resource management and set collection.
Dark Stories Review
In Dark Stories you must decipher how someone met their demise by looking at a card and asking yes and no questions.
Only ancient embodiment will be able to rule the ruins of the Earth. So you must fight it out against the other elder gods. Get cultists to your side, summon horrific monsters, cast spells, open interdimensional gates, and get your Great Old One awake to crush the others. Each of the Ancient Ones' factions plays very differently from one-another. So each play through can be drastically different. Petersen Games worked hard to make sure that each faction, while asymmetrical to one-another, is still balanced and gives you opportunities with different play styles.
The campaign just launched and they funded in only 11 minutes. As such, it's on to stretch goals for the next 29 days.
That means we get ourselves a Friday Snippets feature. So here's some bite-sized stories we've found for you over the past couple days.
This batch includes: Privateer Press Announces Updates Coming Fro War Room, Library Lovers Playing Cards On Kickstarter, Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities for a Creepy Old House, Lands of Ruin team releases free 3D character models, Capsicum Games to launch Fleet Commander kickstarter next month, Looting Atlantis now offers a money back guarantee during final days on Kickstarter, Sengoku 15mm Japanese Fantasy – HOTT Armies now released, and Last weekend for Free Huge Glow-in-the-Dark Cthulhu Figure from Petersen Games.
Privateer Press Announces Updates Coming Fro War Room
Last week, Devastation brought new forces to the fight. Now it's War Room's turn to get rearmed for the front lines.
In the coming weeks, War Room will be opening up 500 beta test spots for each of the three major platforms: iOS, Android, and Amazon devices. Among the many major improvements, the user interface (UI) is being completely redone to provide more intuitive controls, better access points, and a more visual and smooth site. Users will be able to tag their armies, making it easier to find exactly the list they are looking for. Collection support has also been updated, allowing users to keep track of how many of each model they have, as well as indicate which models are painted, making it easier to determine which models they have ready to show off at the local game store.
Library Lovers Playing Cards On Kickstarter
The Library Lover's Playing Cards features a collection of vintage images from the early part of the 20th Century. Each picture was used to promote and advertise libraries to the public and encourage recreational reading. These designs are as evocative today as they were when they were first created.
As a library lover myself, I wanted to get these out into the open and so set about putting the images on playing cards so you can enjoy them too. I have had two prototypes made, each one a beauty. I've firmed up the design and the production and am ready to print my first run. I just need your help...
Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities for a Creepy Old House
Oddities are the little touches that fill up the corners of lives. In our own mundane world, they might be limited to old, chewed pencils, unused key-fobs, or a half-finished decorative spoon collection awaiting the Grand Canyon and Mount Rushmore. In the worlds of our imagination, however, they can be so much more. What oddities might be found in the halls, on the walls, or occupying the shelves of a Creepy Old House?
Lands of Ruin team releases free 3D character models
The team behind Lands of Ruin game has released 6 free and open source 3D models for post-apocalyptic tribe characters. These 3D models can be used to home print these models in 28mm scale skirmish gaming (a pretty high quality printer is required though).
The use of open source license also allows anyone to take these models, modify them and redistribute or even sell the printed models. The only requirement is that the the work has an attribution to the original work and any derivative work is also open source under the same license.
Is there room for open source model creation in the miniature gaming hobby alongside the more traditional approach? If you have 3D modelling skills try creating your own based on these models and if you have access to a 3D printer try printing the models and see if the quality is good enough for your use.
Capsicum Games to launch Fleet Commander kickstarter next month
In November Capsicum Games will be launching their Fleet Commander boardgame on Kickstarter, discover Fleet Commander - Genesis with a lot of surprises !

Looting Atlantis now offers a money back guarantee during final days on Kickstarter
Shoot Again Games, creator of Legends & Lies and the new game, Looting Atlantis, announced today the addition of a money back guarantee to everyone who purchases Looting Atlantis during its Kickstarter campaign. Diane Sauer, co-owner of the up-and-coming board and card game development firm explained, "We feel that one of the greatest strengths of Looting Atlantis is its ability to sell itself when people play it, so this money back guarantee is just a way to show just how confident we are in making that statement." She continues "If you were hesitant to pledge or were in any way unsure that you'd absolutely love Looting Atlantis, now's your chance to see for yourself."
Sengoku 15mm Japanese Fantasy – HOTT Armies now released

It currently has forty single codes and a number of packs as well as two sets and now two HOTT 2nd Edition 24AP Armies supplied with all needed element bases.

Cthulhu Wars comes to Kickstarter again with Cthulhu Wars – Onslaught Two!
Cthulhu Wars’ original Kickstarter campaign launched in 2013 to stellar success. Hitting over 1.4 million dollars and unlocking a WHOPPING 41 stretch goals! Cthulhu Wars’ – Onslaught Two promises to be just as great or even greater.
In the game you play as mad scientists trying to construct the most diabolical of monsters... so you can have them fight one-another, of course. Roll your dice and create your gruesome minion to do your bidding. But make sure the stitching and spot-welds are good, because the enemy is going to look to knock your monster's block off.
The campaign's close to 1/3 funded with still 20 days left to go.
From the campaign:
The award winning game Orcs Must Die! has at last made its way to the table top! Orcs Must Die! The Boardgame dares you to preserve your stronghold sieged by orcs. Teamed with Robot Entertainment our new game is precisely adapted to the tabletop environment. It includes scores of great plastic figures of all your favorite heroes, plus hordes of orcs, crossbow orcs, kobolds, gnolls, trolls, ogres, and more. Build a fortress, then watch swarms of baddies plunge through your defenses.
Orcs Must Die! The Boardgame is designed and published by Petersen Games. Our friends at Robot Entertainment are providing art and other digital assets. However, Petersen Games is solely responsible for creating and running this project.
How Is It Played?
Each individual game supports 1-4 players, who must co-operate to survive the enemy onslaught. You and your friends each choose a hero as your game avatar. Each hero has an individual sheet, with his characteristics, special ability, and superpower, that you need to save for the right moment. Each hero also comes with a heroic-sized figure and special weapon upgrades.
Choose a map – you can select a map we’ve included, or create your own! A typical map is made up of from 4 to as 10 or more tiles. The game has a lot of pieces, but the map itself fits just fine on a typical gaming (or dining room) table. Finally, the fight begins! Each turn, waves of orcs and other monsters move pitilessly across your map, relentlessly aiming for your poor Rift. You and your allies race around the map, placing traps strategically and facing invaders in hand-to-hand combat.
Earn trophy skulls for killing your enemies! Your collection of skulls is the game’s “currency” – spend them to upgrade your weapons, buy magic amulets, upgrade your war camp, and other uses.
For more about the games:
Those who choose to be part of the Order will assume the roles of mighty heroes facing the seemingly endless onslaught of orcs. But those who choose the Unchained core set, will find themselves on the other side of the battle, fending off the so called heroic humans, elves, and other do-gooders. No matter the core set, 1-4 players are supported, and everyone must work together against the game as their chosen heroes go up against waves of enemies.
In an effort to defend their keep, heroes (good and bad) will go toe-to-toe with the invaders as well as set traps all over the tile-based map. Each set will come with several predetermined maps to choose from, but the games also allows players to use the tiles to make their own.
Those who own both sets or know friends with the other one can combine the Order and Uncahined to form yet another game where up to eight players split in to two teams and choose their favorite heroes from their respective sides to do battle and capture the other players' tower.
The Kickstarter is coming soon, but in the meanwhile, here are the expected contents of the game:
The core game of Orcs Must Die: Order – the boardgame, includes:
Player sheets (4)
The War Camp
Map Tiles: 16 large die-cut tiles

But that isn’t all, because we have a whole ream of exciting stretch goals planned which will expand this greatly!
On the PAX East show floor, a prototype version of the game was on display, but no demos were being given. Here are some pictures of what they had.
It seems to be the general consensus that this week "took forever." Has that been the case for you?
Anyway, that's all in the past, as the weekend will soon be upon us. What sort of gaming do you have planned?
We've also, as usual, been collecting some of the shorter stories together for presentation. And here you go.
This time we have: More of The Fiver from The Meeple Mechanic, Godslayer Gnolls Swarm the Battlefield, More $1 shipping from LaserCutCard, Ludus Magnus Studio presents Vezio the Executioner, New Female Punk Heads and Shoulder Pads from Brother Vinni, New ISO Shipping Container Variants at Burn In Designs, Heroic Maps - Encounters: Winter Wilderness Locations, New MDF Paint Racks from Advanced Deployment, Beardy Brothers Announces Project Green Plunder, Tooth and Sword chibis now availible, New Kromlech Mutated Shoulder Pads, New Hardfoam Container Sets from Micro Art Studio, and the Final Days for Theomachy up on Kickstarter.
The Fiver with Justin Call
Hello! My name is Justin Call. I’m originally from Portland, OR but transplanted myself to Boston, MA in 2007 where I worked as a correspondence writer for the President of Harvard University. In 2012 I got my Master’s from Harvard, and in 2014 I left Boston so that I could focus full-time on my creative writing (I am a fantasy novelist and screenwriter) and on managing the affairs of Broomstick Monkey Games. I currently live in Las Vegas, but I’ll be moving to Pocatello, ID very for my wife’s work and to be closer to our company headquarters in Rexburg, ID.
The Fiver with Sarah and Will Reed
Hiya! We are Sarah and Will Reed. We live in Sacramento, California. Sarah works as a government stooge, er, as a research analyst. Will is a freelance writer, currently writing LEGO reviews on TheBrickBlogger.com.
We’ve been designing games for a little more than 2 years. We have a print on demand title called Triple Threat on TheGameCrafter.com. We’ve worked on a variety of games, but Project Dreamscape is the first we’re taking to Kickstarter. We started working on it in November 2014. As soon as we took it to our local game design meeting, it was a big hit. So much so that our friend Ben Haskett insisted that he help us put it on Kickstarter, and we, of course, couldn’t say no. It was a dream come true!
The Fiver with Ivan Turner
Hello! I’m Ivan Turner, the designer of Titans of Empyrean. When I’m not consumed by the life of games and game design, I teach web development in a New York City public high school. Way back in my past, I owned a comic and gaming store, which really introduced me to the industry. I left that behind when I got engaged to my wife. We’ve been married for almost 13 years and have 2 children.
The Fiver with Joshua Degrogorio
This is Joshua Degregorio from Cray Cray Games—a new, independent board game design studio in Boston, Massachusetts. My partner in crime, Phil Cartagena and I got started in early 2012 in the game design business. We began from a mutual love of board games, and also a mutual dislike of games that set really high expectations with great art, production quality, and theme, but then failed players with poorly written rules or mechanics that just didn’t work. We decided to take the things we loved, leave out the things that didn’t work for us, and try our hand at game design. It’s easy to criticize, but we wanted to see if we could actually hack it.
Godslayer Gnolls Swarm the Battlefield
Sneaky, cowardly and full of mischief, the Gnolls are now swarming Godslayer battlefields. Released recently, the sneaky Grondah Filthlings provide players with a pair of warlords to lead the miscreants.
Now Megalith Games has also released the Reaver Runts - a new unit of expendable scum to do the bidding of the Filthlings. Even their own comrades despise them and trample over them when tactically prudent, and in this way, Reaver Runts can act as a shield, but allowing the Troglodyte units to charge over the Gnolls.
So Troglodyte Warbands can now field units of Gnolls, greatly expanding the strategic options of their faction, or you can build warbands entirely from Gnolls.

Final Days for Theomachy up on Kickstarter
A joint Kickstarter project by Historical Games Factory from Poland and Petersen Games from the USA to fund the English edition of a mythological deck-building card game Theomachy is enetering its final 3 days, ending on 2nd March 2015.
Two separate but compatibile English versions were funded on the first day of the project, and they are now on the verge of exceeding $100 000 and getting 500% of the funding sum, having already unlocked 2 stretch goals.
Apart from the pantheons available in the earlier European editions (Polish and German), Theomachy: The Ancients and Theomachy: The Warrior Gods will include brand new content, like Egyptian and Aztec mythology as well as gods from Cthulhu Mythos (co-developed by Sandy Petersen).
From the campaign:
Historical Games Factory in cooperation with Petersen Games launched a joint Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund the English (and possibly also French) edition of their game "Teomachia" (known also as "Theomachie" in German, successfully crowdfunded in late 2013). The card game about the war of mythological gods now returns in two separate versions, "Theomachy: The Warrior Gods" (including the Celtic, Norse, Slavonic pantheons and H.P. Lovecraft's Great Old Ones) and "Theomachy: The Ancients" (including Greek, Babylonian, Egyptian pantheons and H.P. Lovecraft's Outer Gods), compatibile and easy to mix, enabling up to 8 people playing at once.
