I just HAD to buy the new Mansion of Madness game from FFG yesterday and I cracked it open last night for a look. The app is pretty slick, complete with creepy ambient music to set the scene. Have a look at what's inside.

Kingdom Death Confirms Reprint Kickstarter Plans For This Year

5 Comments

I had a chance to chat with Adam from Kingdom Death this am and he confirmed the next step for the stunning boutique game will be a Kickstarter to fund Kingdom Death 1.4 Reprint. This will be the same game with just a couple minor tweaks in the rules and perhaps only a few KS new models. Until then, they have added new card art to a few of the existing sculpts- and don't worry, if you already have the sculpts and would like the card art, reach out to Kingdom Death and they will sort you out. They do not want existing supporters to feel slighted. When asked about expansions, Adam said they want to address the Reprint first as they continue to be flooded with requests for the game.

Big Draw For Cthulhu Pandemic At Z-Man Games Booth

No Comments

If you love Pandemic (who doesn't?), and you love Cthulhu, there's no reason to not be interested in Cthulhu Pandemic. There's not an empty table in their play area. Though another game of theirs caught my eye- Broadsides. It's a card based, pirate themed board game- and I do love my pirate stuff!

It’d be great if you could swing by the Dream Pod 9 (both 1321). They’ve said that they have their new plastic starter sets on display.

I love the Kingdom Death figures, but they are so great I don’t think I could do them justice when I came to painting them.

Don’t forget about Infinity … the standard set by the studio is so unbelievably high you’ve got to wonder what mere mortals like us can do with these things.
