New Bolt Action Releases Available From Warlord Games

February 23, 2018 - 19:00

Two new releases are available today for Bolt Action. One’s a new British Commandos HQ set, giving your troops some command out on the field. The other is a Waffen-SS Schwimmwagen diorama, depicted in winter. I know that most of the Northern Hemisphere is still pretty cold, but here in Atlanta, we’ve got 70s for highs. Anyway, both are available to order now.

Striking from the sea, most often from the dark, the army and naval Commandos caused great apprehension to German sentries and garrisons all over occupied Europe in their daring hit and run raids. The brainchild of Winston Churchill himself who had seen the damage Boer commandos could do to a static defensive force at first hand.

This elite force (volunteers all) was Britain’s only viable way of taking a land war to the all-conquering German army, who had thought themselves safe from Britain’s land forces.


Tough, lavishly equipped and politically indoctrinated, SS troops formed over 38 divisions and numerous other regimental and battalion-sized units, totalling nearly a million men under arms.

With the many plastic and metal sets we have on offer within the Bolt Action Waffen-SS range you’ll be able to challenge your painting skills and display one of arguably the best-looking formations on the battlefield.

WizKids Announces Curio: The Lost Temple

February 23, 2018 - 18:00

A staple of the tropes in ancient tombs is the requirement to solve intricate puzzles in order to proceed forward. Theoretically, this meant that only true followers of those that built the structure would know how to get through them (oftentimes with deadly results for those that failed). There’s often a time element involved. You must think fast and accurately, or all is lost. Such is the case in Curio: The Lost Temple, a new real-time puzzle game coming from WizKids.

From the announcement:

WizKids is pleased to announce the upcoming real-time cooperative puzzle game, Curio: The Lost Temple. Designed by Ian Zang, 2 to 5 players take on the role of a team of archaeologists that ended up getting trapped inside an ancient temple. They will need to communicate and collaborate in order to solve an unending slew of puzzles in order to escape!

Unlike other games in this genre, Curio: The Lost Temple is endlessly replayable, even by the same player. Using a unique module-based system, players manipulate, sort, rotate, and search puzzle components to arrive at a distinct answer. However, time is not unlimited. If too much time passes, or a player gives a wrong answer, then all is lost, and everyone loses.

How do you solve these cryptic questions? Use a wheel to decode an array of symbols. Take the Translation Key and place it on the Translation Board to reveal an answer. Connect threads along a grid to grant you the hidden code. These are but some of the modules and methods needed to solve the questions and escape the temple.

The brain bending puzzles of Curio: The Lost Temple will be available at your Friendly Local Game Store May 2018 for $34.99. Pre-order yours today and get ready to test your skills.

Dawn of Rebellion Sourcebook Now Available For the Star Wars RPG

February 23, 2018 - 17:00

At the end of the first three movies (number-wise, not release-wise) in Star Wars, Emperor Palpatine has seized power and is ruling the galaxy with an iron fist. Very quickly, those that want the Republic back form a resistance movement that would be known as the Rebellion. But that early start wasn’t easy. The Dawn of Rebellion book for the Star Wars RPG takes you to those difficult days. It’s available now.

From the release:

Dawn of Rebellion, the first Era Sourcebook for the Star Wars™ Roleplaying Game, is available now from your local retailer or on our webstore! Drawing from the characters, locations, and equipment featured in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the Star Wars Rebels series, Dawn of Rebellion gives players and Game Masters the tools and the inspiration to create their own adventures set in the early days of the Rebellion against the indomitable war machine of the Empire.

Whether your campaign is primarily themed around Edge of the Empire™, Age of Rebellion™, Force and Destiny™, or a blend of all three, Dawn of Rebellion offers a range of new specialization trees and species for you to use as player characters and the denizens of the galaxy that they meet. Location dossiers for iconic worlds such as Alderaan, Jedha, Dathomir, and more contribute terrific source material for your tales of danger and adventure. Additionally, extensive information on every level of the organization of the Empire gives players and Game Masters a solid background foundation for stories of desperate fringers, brave Rebels, or nascent Force-users.

New Space Wolves Available To Pre-order From Forge World

February 23, 2018 - 16:00

Space puppies!
I know, I know. They’re Space Wolves. But, to me, every dog’s a puppy, even if it weighs 240 pounds and it can bite through a parking meter. I’m sure the Space Wolves don’t like being called Space Puppies, but they’ll get over it if you scratch them behind the ears and tell them they’re a good boy. And if you’d like to expand your pack, there’s several new Space Wolf sets available to order from Forge World.

From the website:

Build a Space Wolves Legion Strike Force with this bundle of miniatures and upgrades. In it, you’ll find:

Space Wolves Legion Varagyr Terminators

A set of 5 resin models wearing heavy Terminator armour designed more for function than beauty – what decoration there is comes from the furs, pelts and fangs draped over their shoulders and tied to their waists. Their faces are partially obscured by splendid beards and wild hair, with large topknots billowing out behind them, and each miniature is armed with an axe and combi-bolter.

Space Wolves Legion Praetor

Standing fierce in exceptionally detailed armour featuring runes, pelts and the markings of the Space Wolves Legion, this Praetor is modelled in an exceptionally aggressive pose, levelling his combi-bolter at anything foolish enough to stand in his way. His right hand clutches a chainsword covered in carven runes, and his splendid beard is appropriately plaited, with a skull-hewn topknot topping off the miniature. The combi-bolter can be replaced with an optional dagger, included in the kit.

Mark III Space Marines

A set of 10 plastic Space Marines, including 10 Phobos-pattern bolters, 11 chainswords (one left-handed, allowing a Sergeant to take 2 chainswords), 1 heavy bolter, 1 power sword, 1 power fist, 1 Phobos-pattern bolt pistol, 1 plasma pistol, 1 lightning claw, 1 melta gun, 1 plasma gun, 1 Legion Vexilla, as well as 12 helmeted heads and 2 bare heads, with an included transverse helmet crest.

Space Wolves Legion Grey Slayers Upgrade Pack 1

Upgrade 5 of the included MKIII Space Marines to a Space Wolves Legion Grey Slayers Ranged Combat Squadwith this set of resin components. It contains:

– 5 shoulder pads;
– 5 axes;
– 5 bolt pistols;
– 5 right arms;
– 5 left arms;
– 1 banner;
– 1 Sergeant torso;
– 8 heads.

Space Wolves Legion Grey Slayers Upgrade Pack 2

Upgrade 5 of the included MKIII Space Marines to a Space Wolves Legion Grey Slayers Close Combat Squad with this set of resin components. It contains:

– 5 shoulder pads;
– 5 axes;
– 5 right arms;
– 5 left arms;
– 5 shields;
– 1 banner;
– 1 Sergeant torso;
– 8 heads.

Tompet Games Launches Donning the Purple on Kickstarter

February 23, 2018 - 00:00

“It’s good to be king.” Sure, we’ve all heard that. But you know what’s better? Being the emperor. And being the emperor of one of the most vast empires the world has ever seen is even better. But, being emperor, as you put on the regal robes, you know that there’s a target on your back, as usurpers sharpen their knives in the shadows. That’s what you’ll be watching out for, or possibly being one of those usurpers, yourself, in Donning the Purple, a new board game from Tompet Games that’s up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

It is the year 193 AD. The Roman Empire is not as great as it once was. Enemies are crossing the borders while famine and political intrigues are tearing the empire apart from within. The previous emperor was killed by his Praetorian bodyguard and has left a vacuum that the powerful families in Rome are trying to fill. Are you ready to don the purple yourself and be the new emperor? If you fail, the other families are ready to take over at a moment’s notice. While they wait for your doom, they will backstab and undermine you as much as they can. However you all have to work together as the fall of the Roman Empire is closing in.

The campaign is closing in quickly on its goal with still 28 days left to go.

Devil’s Run RPG Back Up On Kickstarter

February 22, 2018 - 23:00

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. It’s another way of saying that if you fall off that post-apocalyptic car while being chased by marauders, you get back up on it. At least, I would suggest you do so. And that’s what Red Scar has done with their Devil’s Run Kickstarter. This new one supports both Modiphius’ 2d20 system as well as Savage Worlds.

From the campaign:

The Devil’s Run Kickstarter has relaunched! Utilising Modiphius’ much beloved 2d20 system (Conan, Infinity, John Carter, Star Trek) and the popular Savage World ruleset, the tabletop roleplaying game will explore the post-apocalyptic setting of the crazy and fun Devil’s Run board game!

The new campaign is closing in on its funding goal with still 19 days left to go.

12 Realms: Dungeonland Late Pledges Now Available

February 22, 2018 - 22:00

Mage Company is now taking late pledges for their 12 Realms: Dungeonland game. If you missed out on the Kickstarter, but want to still get the benefits of it, now’s your chance. The game is for 1-4 players, as you head your way through a dungeon (seems appropriate). Take on the mantle of famous characters from folklore and look for adventure and loot.

From the website:

12 Realms: Dungeonland is a dungeon crawling game for 1-4 heroes. Players take on the roles of famous folklore characters, like Red Riding Hood and Prince Charming, each with unique abilities. They venture across famous tales to stop great villains that have been turned by dark magic, changing the tale’s endings and casting the realms into eternal darkness. Our heroes will travel through many tales to gather clues about the source of this mysterious evil. They will fight for their lives using a unique combat system that features a set of custom dice.

Through these adventures, the heroes will gather experience, hone their skills (and, acquire new ones using an innovative skill-tree system), collect gold, and discover powerful artifacts to aid them against the foul magic that has spread throughout the lands. Impassioned explorers will encounter strong villains and their minions served up by an A.I. system that allows them to react to certain circumstances and utilize amazing abilities that will challenge even the mightiest and most resourceful.

Cryptozoic To Launch Cult: Choose Your God Wisely Board Game Kickstarter

February 22, 2018 - 19:00

I don’t know what happens after we die. I don’t know if there’s any god or gods out there in the universe, watching. But if you’re part of a cult, you’re pretty sure there is. But what god do you follow? That’s the first choice you need to make in Cult: Choose Your God Wisely, a new board game coming to Kickstarter from Cryptozoic and Idrology. It will launch next week on the 28th.

From the announcement:

In Cult: Choose Your God Wisely, each player chooses a God for their Cult to follow, with this deity having special abilities that can aid him or her. Gameplay consists of two phases. In the Intention Phase, players place their free Priests onto Locations on the board, with more Locations becoming available as a Cult gains Followers. During the Resolution Phase, a winner is determined in each Location based on the Influence of the players’ Priests, with Miracle and Intrigue Cards capable of changing the outcome of each conflict dramatically. The player who wins a Location is able to use its unique benefits, while the other present players receive alms for their cause in the form of coins.

A player can win the game in a variety of ways: building five Altars, controlling four Fanatical Mobs, or performing the Summoning of his or her God twice.

Cult: Choose Your God Wisely launches February 28 on Kickstarter, with a single copy of the deluxe version of the game available for a $50 pledge.

Robin Hood and the Merry Men Board Game Up On Kicsktarter

February 22, 2018 - 15:00

Ah! Ho! Ha-ha! Guard! Turn! Parry! Dodge! Spin! Ha! Thrust!
Ok, so Robin Hood and the Merry Men doesn’t take place in the Warner Brothers universe, but whenever I think of ol’ Robin, I think of Daffy. And we’ve got Robin Hood up on Kickstarter with Final Frontier Games’ Robin Hood and the Merry Men board game. It blends together set collection, worker placement, some dice rolling, and more to give you a semi-cooperative game.

From the campaign:

“Robin Hood and the Merry Men” is a thematic euro style game that perfectly blends worker placement, hand management, set collection and dice rolling into a one big exciting crossover.
It’s a fun game with multiple paths to victory, where you will live and breathe a true Robin Hood style adventure.
The players take on the role of a famous outlaw such as Robin Hood, Little John, Will Scarlet and Jane Fortune, and their mission is to protect the town of Nottingham from the tyranny of infamous ruler Prince John and the notorious Sheriff of Nottingham throughout 5 rounds of onslaught. If they succeed, a winner is declared-the player with the most victory points becomes Nottingham’s greatest champion.

The art for the game is done by The Mico, the same artist behind the beautiful art in Final Frontier Games’ previous projects ‘Rise to Nobility” and “Cavern Tavern”, so “Robin Hood and the Merry Men” is expected to be a direct hit.

“Robin Hood and the Merry Men” is a game for 2-4 players, ages 13 and up, and takes approximately 25 minutes per player to play it.
The Kickstarter Campaign will feature a Standard version of the game and a Deluxe version.
Both pledge levels will come with options for shipping worldwide, and they will be available for retailers as well.

The campaign is closing in on 6x funded with still 27 days to go.

Achtung! Cthulhu – Zero Point – Code of Honour Savage Worlds Edition Available Now

February 21, 2018 - 22:00

Yeah, quite a long headline there with a lot of things going on in it. The short version is that Modiphius has released the Savage Worlds version of Code of Honour, part of their Achtung! Cthulhu series. So, if you’ve wanted to play the adventure, but your gaming group really wanted to stick with/play using the Savage Worlds system, you can now do so without having to change everything over yourself.

From the announcement:

Istanbul in 1942 is a neutral city, packed with spies. Everyone’s here – the Nazis, the Soviets, the Brits and the Yanks, the Japanese and a host of other nations, all waging a deadly war of wits against a backdrop of cocktail bars and polite smiles. From the infamous Snake Pit in the Park Hotel, to the jazz clubs and fashionable restaurants of Istiklal Avenue, to the warrens of alleys around the spires and mosques of Fatih and Sultanahmet, it’s a city in ferment. While Turkey desperately tries to stay out of the war, the Führer’s armies mass less than a hundred miles away.

But that’s not all. Something even more terrifying is going on beneath the ancient streets of the Sublime Porte. Meddling forces have unearthed an ancient treasure, setting in motion plans centuries old which threaten to change the course of the whole war – and even the world!

Code of Honour: Zero Point 1942 is a multi-session Achtung Cthulhu adventure with a difference. It features:

– descriptions and personalities of Istanbul in 1942
– a detailed map of wartime Istanbul
– rules for tradecraft and spying
– secrets and mysteries of Istanbul, including new grimoires
– a multi-session adventure of lethal conspiracy

Pandasaurus Games Announces Duelosaur Island

February 21, 2018 - 21:00

Many of us, growing up (or even now), wish we could go visit a dinosaur theme park. I mean, how cool would it be if Jurassic Park were a real thing (minus all the people getting killed and eaten, of course)? I think the only thing cooler would be being the one in charge of the park. And that’s what you’ll be in Duelosaur Island, a new stand-alone Dinosaur Island spin-off game from Pandasaurus Games.

About the game:

Pandasaurus Games is proud to announce a brand new stand-alone 2 player sequel to Dinosaur Island: Duelosaur Island!

Designed by Ian Moss and developed by Dinosaur Island designer Jon Gilmour, Duelosaur has completely unique mechanics that make it an amazing experience that is sure to add to anyone’s collection.

“We first heard about Duelosaur Island just before GenCon last year. Jon told us that Ian had a game to show us and that it was based on Dinosaur Island. At the pitch meeting Ian had a complete copy of the game ready to play and Molly and I played through the entire game in the booth. Twice. It was obvious from the get-go that this game had everything that made Dinosaur Island special, but the mechanics were so tight and the choices so interesting it was signed on the spot”. – Nathan McNair, Pandasaurus Games

Duelosaur Island brings back a lot of the same feeling that players loved about Dinosaur Island, but introduces an entirely new hand-management tableau-building engine that is unlike anything you’ve seen in Dinosaur Island, and a really tense “I cut you choose” dice drafting mechanic.

“One of the things we loved most about the game is how much it felt like playing a game of Dinosaur Island, even though the mechanics are completely different. You still roll DNA dice, you still make dinosaurs, you still must manage your threat level. But then there is this super clever card mechanism that leaves you with so many tense decisions to make. And don’t even get me started on the dice-drafting mechanism. Once the DNA dice are rolled the first-player sets the market by assigning different dice different bonuses, but the second-player gets to choose first. Do you give the dice you need to good bonuses and risk your opponent taking them? Or do you play it safe and throw the solid bonuses on the dice you don’t want” said President of Pandasaurus Games Nathan McNair.

Duelosaur is built around a clever hand management mechanism. Each card in the game serves 3 potential purposes. They contain the DNA sequences for dinosaurs you could create, the blueprints for attractions you can build and also are discarded to take certain actions. Do you create the Dinosaur on the top of the card attracting guests to your park? Or do you build the attraction on the bottom of the card, which can add to a players hand-limit, income and end-game VP? Or do you discard the card to combine DNA towards creating another dinosaur.

Duelosaur Island comes with 5 brand new full-color “DNA dice”. You can mix and match dice between Dinosaur Island and Duelosaur Island for even more variability in both games. Adding a copy of Duelosaur Island to your collection is going to unlock lots of cool new possibilities in Dinosaur Island like the brand-new security symbol that can appear on dice to upgrade your security level instantly! Mixing these dice in with the Dinosaur Island dice is a great way to add replayability to both Duelosaur Island and Dinosaur Island.

And of course we had to get the band back together with all new artwork from Kwanchai Moriya and Peter Wocken on graphic design, bringing that same bright flashly 90s infused explosion to your tabletops.

The game has been in development for over a year, and over the last few months we’ve expanded to a wide playtesting group and the results have been phenomenal. Just some of the feedback we’ve been getting from our playtesters:

Joshua S: “I enjoyed the dynamic of choosing where to put everything for the DNA-drafting portion and then having your opponent choose first. I thought it was fun trying to give the dice you wanted better bonuses but still try to make other things look attractive enough for your opponent to choose them instead.

Francis P: “The 4 phases are cool. The drafting mechanism is nice… great idea that the first player only chooses [dice position] but the second player takes first. But the very best part is the construction phase. It’s cool that a player can do as many action as he wants, as many times as he wants. That is giving [player’s] lots of liberty.”

Duelosaur Island is scheduled for release later this year at an MSRP of 34.95.

And we’re just getting started. You didn’t think we would neglect the main Dinosaur Island game did you? Things are about to get bigger, a lot scarier, and there is a 100% chance of getting wet if you sit in the first 10 rows.

Check back on March 12th, 2018 for even more exciting Dinosaur Island news.
