Here’s some announcements from the past week.

New Kickstarter Projects

  • Live Now: Crusaders: Thy Will Be Done from Tasty Minstrel Games

Crusaders: Thy Will Be Done will put players in the role as the leader of a Crusading Order. Using an innovative Mancala/Rondel mechanism, they will move their knights through Europe. As they travel, they will battle with enemies, construct buildings, and train troops – all the while trying to be the order that has gained the most influence before the game comes to a close.

  • Live Now: Ink Monsters from Albino Dragon

Take control of a magic pen and draw the cutest monsters to bring them to life. Collect each monster to use their special abilities each round or affect your final score.

  • Live Now: Founders of Gloomhaven from Cephalofair Games

Founders of Gloomhaven is a competitive 2 hour city building game for 1-4 players. It is not an expansion to Gloomhaven, but a stand-alone Euro project that features a unique mix of tile placement, action selection, hand management, worker placement, and blind bidding.

  • Live Now: Star Realms Frontiers from White Wizard Games

Frontiers is a 1-4 player standalone expansion for the multiple game-of-the-year award winning Star Realms Deckbuilding Game.

  • Live Now: Short Order Hero from Wyvern Gaming

You are one of 2-5 short order cooks working in a greasy diner. The battle is on when the owner tells the crew that one of you will be promoted to head cook by the end of the night! Work your rump roast off to serve the best recipe you can. All the while still making time to sabotage your opponents and hurting their chances as well.

New Products

  • Preview new Sourcebook for Star Wars roleplaying

Dawn of Rebellion is the first sourcebook of its kind, designed to be used alongside any of the three core roleplaying lines. Campaigns using Edge of the Empire™, Age of Rebellion™, or Force and Destiny™—or any combination of the same—will find a wealth of valuable information within its 144 pages.

  • New Warhammer Codexes to be released

Each one of these tomes will be an invaluable resource on a faction within the 41st Millennium and the Warhammer 40,000 game. While the indexes provided the platform for every army to play from day one of the new edition with all their models, the codexes will be where the incredible depth and rich background of the galaxy really manifests on the tabletop.

  • Grail Games to release English version of Kashgar

Kashgar is a deck-building game in which players actually build three, “open” decks at the same time. Depending on which card is at the front of each deck (or caravan), determines what actions are currently available for the players. Cards let you acquire spices or mules, make deliveries for points, or acquire new cards for your caravans.
In 2013, Kashgar was released in Germany to wide acclaim, and is now being printed in English.

  • Rulebook now available for Professor Evil and The Citadel of Time from Passport Game Studios

Professor Evil owns a time machine, and he’s been ripping off all the best historical items from times both past and future. Your team has been charged with confiscating these items and returning them to their proper locations in time.  Have a look at the rulebook!

  • Coming Soon: Gang Rush: Breakout from Cool Mini or Not

It’s a race across the border as you compete with other henchmen to get the most ill-gotten goods back to the big boss. Outrun the other drivers and avoid the border patrol to become his right-hand man. Choose your driver, plot your course, and fasten your seatbelt! Gang Rush is one heck of a ride!
