The logistics behind getting gaming products out to you, the populace, are huge and complicated. And try as they might, sometimes things don't go as planned. Any small hiccup along the way can cause a change in when product is available. So, with that in mind, WizKids is sad to say that they are pushing back the release of the Marvel HeroClix: X-Men the Animated Series, the Dark Phoenix Saga set until the end of the month.

WizKids is creating a card game based on the Coraline movie (one of my personal favorites, mind you), which is, of course, based on the Neil Gaiman book. It's called Coraline: Beware the Other Mother. In the game, players take on the role of the ghost children, captured by the Baldam, who are looking to free Coraline by finding various objects around the spooky house and avoiding all the other strange people living there. The game is set for a December release.

Haunted houses. Considering the time of year, they're just ramping up. Well, you don't have to wait so long on your tabletops if you'd like to have some spooky fun. WizKids has released Hako Onna (the board game, not the vengeful spirit). Can you get out of the house in time?

Getting just the right figure to represent your character or monsters on the tabletop when playing an RPG is a big thing for me, and I'm sure it is for some of you as well. And you may feel that the regular Icons of the Realms figures just aren't good enough for you. Well, you're in luck, as WizKids is coming out with a premium line of figures.

Well, it's not a giant robot, but it's close. Longtime readers know how I love miniatures that really stretch the bounds of what "Miniature" really means. That's what we're getting from WizKids in their premium Walking Statue of Waterdeep: The Honorable Knight figure. He's a big 'un.

A classic game in a new form. Relic, the epic sci-fi adventure around the Antian Sector, is now available from WizKids. What's different about the WizKids version? The busts for the figures have been improved. There's also upgraded punchboard and scenario cards. Want to get something a little extra? There's the Deluxe version where the busts are pre-painted for your convenience. You can get your copy now.

I like having a diverse set of miniatures out on the table when I'm playing my RPGs. And I like them to be as close to the thing they're representing as possible. So, getting a new set of D&D miniatures from WizKids is always nice. The Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus set is now available. If you're playing the corresponding adventure from WotC, it's perfect. But if you're just looking for some new figures to round out your collection, it's great for that too.

The WWE is slamming its way into HeroClix. Do a double-flip off the top turnbuckle and pin your opponents. With the new slew of wrestlers making their way to the ring, the game is getting some new Standard Powers to represent the high-flying action. In this article, we get a look at them for veterans and new gamers alike to see what's coming.

Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures, the next set for Pathfinder Battles from Paizo and WizKids are about to hit shelves. But that doesn't mean that there's not time for one more preview of what you'll be getting. This time around, they focus on some of the enemies that players will surely be facing off against when the set hits shelves. Let's take a look.

While it's not necessary to have a miniature that exactly represents your character on the tabletop, or the exact figure for the NPCs and monsters you're fighting, I always love to get them as close as possible. So, that's why I'm happy when new Pathfinder Battles sets come out. In this preview, we get a look at some of the figures coming in Legendary Adventures.

Sure, we play characters in games. But what games do your characters play in those games? Well, if you're playing in Dungeons & Dragons, it's highly likely that they're playing Three-Dragon Ante. Of course, you don't want your character to have all the fun. You can also play Three-Dragon Ante. And soon, you'll be able to pick up the Legendary edition of the game.

I wasn't initially sure if I should put this in a Terrain Corner or not, as it kinda crosses over. Paizo and WizKids have a new Pathfinder Battles set coming out soon called Legendary Adventures and if you get the premium set, you get yourself a goblin village as well.

"That's O.P.!!" If you're a gamer, you've probably heard that yelled out before at the LGS or game club or convention. People like their games balanced, and if there's something overpowered, then it can ruin the fun. But what if -everything- is O.P.? Well, then you'd have O.P. Arena, a new party game coming from WizKids.

Chain, chain, chaaaaaaaaain. Chain of Sovereigns.

Ok, so it's not exactly the Motown classic, but still, Sovereign's Chain is available now. Players are attempting to create the biggest difference between the scores of their two suits of cards. But with opponents being able to play cards into their chains, that's not going to be easy. You can pick up your copy of this new hand management game now from WizKids.

I know that many people do "theater of the mind" for their RPG sessions. And that's certainly fine for them, but I greatly prefer having minis on the table to see where things are. Just keeps things neat and tidy when it's like, "I thought that monster was across the room. Why is it clawing at me now?" A new set is coming out soon from WizKids for Pathfinder and Paizo is showing off a preview.

Sweet!
Dude!
Sweet!
Dude!
Ok, enough of that. WizKids and Sweet Games have decided to partner up so that those of us here in the English-speaking world can finally get our hands on Seeders from Sereis: Exodus.

The X-Men have been in just about every form of media. Of course, there's the comic books, but there's also movies and, in this instance, TV shows. Raise your hand if you watched the X-Men cartoon. *raises hand and sees most others do it, too* That's what I thought. Well, there's some new figures for HeroClix coming based on that beloved show.

I don't currently have any pets, but some of my friends do. One has multiple cats and when it's feeding time, they have to go through a whole ritual to keep the two from grabbing at each-other's food. That's the same as you'll be doing in Kibble Scuffle, though you're the ones trying to get all the bets tidbits. You can pick up your copies now.

HeroClix is for heroes of all types. It's not just Marvel and DC that get to have figures. In its upcoming set, WizKids is creating figures based on famous WWE wrestlers. They've posted up a preview of the first two, AJ Punk and Eddie Guerrero. Have yourself a look.

The Neutral Zone is supposed to be a space for everyone. But conflicts certainly happen there. While nobody truly controls it, various factions want it, and that's what you'll be looking to do in Star Trek: Conflick in the Neutral Zone. This dexterity-based game will have you flicking your ships around the board, looking to knock out your enemies. You can pick up your copies now.

Palm Trees is a hand management game. In that you actually manage your hand. You're creating a palm tree right in your palm, and you must hold cards between your fingers and in other odd ways than the usual hand of cards is held in order to recreate the look of the tree. You can pick up your copy now.

I don't know why I love it so that Star Trek Attack Wing is getting a set based on the animated series. I just get giddy when I think of it. Anyway, we're getting a new pair of previews for it, specifically looking at some Klingon cards. Have yourselves a peek.

In most worker placement games, there's no question about when you put a little meeple on a space, it'll do what you ask it to. But what if your workers are neanderthalls who are just barely making it through the stone age? They might not be the most reliable. And that's what you'll have to work around in Age of Dirt, a new worker placement game coming from WizKids.

Technology has advanced to the point where we're headed out into the solar system and establishing bases and colonies off the Earth. In this instance, Europa, one of the moons of Jupiter. In this new "gold rush era," everyone is looking to establish the most extensive colony network. Will you be the one to do it? That's up to you to decide in Europa Base Alpha, now available from WizKids.

Nobody was 100% sure what was going to happen when a nuclear bomb went off. That's what the tests were for. However, one was much bigger than expected and it cracked the Earth all the way to the mantle. The subsequent flooding caused humanity to find refuge out to sea on a massive Flotilla. And that's just where you find yourself in the new board game, announced by WizKids. Scavenge, Survive, Trade, Explore, and become the most powerful person in this new landscape.
