There's tons of different reasons that someone might miss out on a Kickstarter campaign. But just because the timer's run out doesn't mean that you've lost the chance to get all the cool extras and special pricing. For example, Painting Polygons is now taking late pledges for their Animal Adventures: Secrets of Gullet Cove campaign. Want to get yourself some babypuppies and pretty kittes for your D&D games? You can get your name on the list to get them now.
I'm guessing it's not a big, friendly giant by any means. Things in the Dark Souls universe don't tend to be friendly. But it is apparently the last giant, and it's running amok. It's up to the Hunters to stop it. That's where you come in. The Last Giant expansion for the Dark Souls board game is available to order from Steamforged now.
Steamforged is looking to bring back some Guild Ball teams that've been out of print for a while, doing them up in new box sets with new sculpts and the figures made out of new material. In this instance, it's The Order, what the Union turned to after the church took hold. You can order this new box set now.
Friday! Woo! *coughcoughcough*
You know I'm excited! I can't wait for the weekend where I'll... lay on the couch and continue to get over being sick. I'm feeling better. So, with any luck, I'll be over this soon. But still, while I'm still having soup for all my meals, you can munch on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: New Reaper Officer Heads Available From Puppets War, Dice Market Grand Opening Sale Happening This Weekend, Dungeons & Doggies Set 3 Available To Order From Steamforged, and Black Celebration Dice Available From Kraken Dice.
You wouldn't think that a turtle would be a good addition to a sports team. But the Union isn't like most sports teams. The Union is getting itself a new captain in the form of Captain Greede. You can already pre-order this model, but what does he do on the pitch? Let's find out.
Three teams are getting new captains, letting them catch up with some of the others. They're the Alchemists, the Farmers, and The Union. In this preview, we get a look at Soma/Pneuma. Why the two names and slash? Because this character changes during the course of the game, taking on a new persona for a bit. How does that work? Have yourselves a look.
New Captains will soon be making their way to the pitch for Guild Ball. The Farmer's and Alchemist's Guilds, along with The Union are finally getting their new additions. We've only seen what Festival does so far, but if you just can't control your excitement, you can go ahead and get your name on the list to get these new figures when they're released.
Most harvest festivals might just be over with, but Steamforged has one more coming, as the Farmer's Guild for Guild Ball is getting themselves a new captain soon. Her name's Harvest and she's sure to give players a lot of new play styles to try out on the pitch. Have yourselves a look.
Guild Ball runs on its Game Plan Deck. Players get a handful of these cards at the start of the game and they don't just deal with every turn's initiative, but also has a special ability that comes into play that round. The game is getting an updated Game Plan Deck, and Steamforged is showing off the cards. Have yourself a look.
As you all know, I'm a big fan of when a game successfully Kickstarts, then gets sent to backers, and then gets made available to the ganeral public. It's a long, winding, and twisting road, but it's a road that Steamforged has now successfully navigated with Godtear, its miniatures skirmish board game of unearthly might. You can pick up the starter set, along with extra sets, over in their webshop now.
Steamforged Games has started taking pre-orders for Ni No Kuni 2: The Board Game. Players must work together, gathering resources, building a kingdom, and winning over the people if they want to create Evermore from the ruins of Ding Dong Dell.
Lots of Guild Ball news coming from NOVA Open over the weekend. Steamforged was there and they had a lot to talk about. There's some new resin teams for the classic Guilds, as well as the announcement of some new Captains as well as a new Minor Guild, the Shepherd's Guild. Have a look for yourself.
And we're at the end. The last of the new Rookies is up for preview over on the Steamforged Games site. So, if you're wanting to know what your newest Guild Ball player can do before you buy them, now's your time to do just that. Let's head over to the Mason's Guild and check out Champ.
Another day, another Rookie preview. This time around, it's Nomad for the Engineer's Guild. What does the new steampunk player look like? Well, let's take ourselves a look.
*amazing bass riffs*
Wait, wrong Flea. This one isn't a musician/actor, they're a Guild Ball player, and we get a look at him in this preview. If you're looking to add to your Brewer's Guild team (they have sort of gone through a fluff-culling lately), you might want to check him out.
While you can go get your pre-order on for the latest set of rookies for Guild Ball, not all of their stats have been released yet. So, if, for example, you're wanting to know how Kami works, up until reading below, you'd have to order her blind. But we're not into that kind of thing here at TGN. So, let's get you a bit of a preview.
A rookie can add new life to a team. That's what all the Guilds in Guild Ball are hoping to achieve with the Free Cities Draft that happened. The first of those rookies are available, but the second wave is not far behind. If you're looking to pick up Kami, Nomad, Chap, or Flea (bass not included), you can get your name on the list to get them now.
They warned us that it was coming. Well, here it is. Steamforged's Guild Ball had been rocking along with Season 4 for a bit, but things weren't quite the way everyone wanted. So, the crew went back to the drawing board and has updated not just some players, but also some general rules to make everything work out much better. Check it out.
The first 5 of the Free Cities Draft players have been previewed. Now you can go and order them over in the Steamforged Webshop. Been itching to add to your teams? (I know I have) Now's your chance.
Another day, another preview of the rookies that will soon be making their way to Guild Ball pitches. This time around, we take a look at Gaffer, who is headed to the Mortician's Guild, and he looks like he's going to be taking up the spot left by Ghast after he exited, stage left, pursued by bear.
Time for another preview of the upcoming rookies for Guild Ball. Each team is getting themselves a new player, and for the Hunter's Guild, that's The Edge... *reads notes* Wait, sorry, they are apparently not getting the guitarist from U2. This guy is just Edge. Sorry for the mix-up. Anyway, let's see what she brings to the table.
The Guild Ball teams are getting new rookies. After the draft that was held a while ago, Steamforged has been working on creating the stats for the new figures for their new teams. In this preview, we get a look at Layne, the new rookie for the Butcher's Guild. What new talents will he be bringing to the pitch?
Wednesday already? That's not a complaint, mind you. Always happy when a week goes by quickly. It usually means I've been busy. It also means it's closer to the weekend. So, to keep up my energy with all these things to do and to make sure I make it to the weekend, let's snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.
Today on the platter we have: New Shotguns Available From Puppets War, Limited Edition Mutt & Bailey Available To Pre-Order From Steamforged, and Flames Of War - D-Day American: Assault Company & Airborne Gaming Aids.
Steamforged is looking to move their team production for Guild Ball from the metal teams they used to have to resin teams for the classic Guilds. The Fisherman's Guild will be the next one coming out. They'll be light blue. Steamforged has posted up a preview of what they'll look like (you might remember them from their failed Indiegogo campaign from several months back).
When a Kickstarter only lasts a week, there's a chance that you might miss out on it (heck, if it runs for a month, you still might miss out on it). But never fear! Steamforged has started taking late pledges for Devil May Cry: The Bloody Palace. You can still get all the extras and exclusives if you hurry.
