Stargrave: The Last Prospector supplement

Another supplement for the yet to be launched Stargrave, has been leaked by retailers. Neither writer Joseph A McCullough nor publisher Osprey Games have announced this officially. This follows a similar leak a couple of weeks ago for another Stargrave supplement, Quarantine 37.

No information or cover art is available at the moment all we do know is the book contains 96 pages and is due to be released on April 26, 2022. Stargrave: The Last Prospector is available for pre-order for £21.85

The makers of Star Realms, have announced that they have changed the company name to Wise Wizard Games. As the company continues to expand, they want to have a name that best represents their vision and their community. 

“Our original company name was a throwback to Gandalf, the iconic fantasy character. Based on feedback from the community and our future plans to broaden our product line, we decided it was time for a change,” said Debbie Moynihan, COO of Wise Wizard Games.

Wise Wizard Games announced new games in the design and development pipeline:

Riders of Chaos: An audacious arena battle game designed by Richard Garfield. Choose your skilled warrior, select your unpredictable beast, and play with crazy combos as you battle in the arena with stunning miniatures in an immersive play experience.

Robot Quest Arena: A deckbuilding game of robot battles! Do you have what it takes to be the best Robot Tech in the world? Control your adorable battle bot miniature with the skills of your driver and the cards in your deck! Acquire powerful new upgrades for your bot. Destroyed bots respawn each round, so you’re never out of the action!

Hero Realms Dungeon of Thandar: An all new adventure deckbuilding game box set that includes everything you need to adventure through the Dungeon of Thandar as your party fights off evil bosses and minions, leveling up and gaining skills, treasure, and magical items as they go!

Star Realms Rise of Empire: Before Star Realms, there was war and decimation. Rise of Empire tells the origin story of the Star Empire. In this legacy-style game, players will battle each other for survival, and in the end will walk away with a fully playable Star Realms set that includes all-new factions!

Kickstarter Kickaround

Fjords

 

Fjords is a true grail game... so Grail Games is bringing it back in a big way - with the help of Beth Sobel & Phil Walker-Harding!

Fjords is a tile-laying game that takes place in two phases. First, the players explore the fjords around them by laying hexagonal landscape tiles. Second, beginning from the encampments placed during phase one, players will walk the landscape, claiming as much of the plains and cliffs as possible.

The winner of the game will be the player who has claimed the most land. Savvy placements and the ability to plan ahead yet act tactically will be your most important tools.

This new edition of Fjords differs from the original release in the following ways:

  • The game now plays up to four players.

  • The game contains five new variants/modules designed by Phil Walker-Harding. These add optional variety and flavor to the game.

So, You've been Eaten.
Don’t worry, this is simply an occupational hazard.

In So, You've Been Eaten. the Miner and the Beast will face off against one another. 

The Miner earns points by collecting Crystals located in literally the Belly of the Beast, and the Beast earns points by developing Immune Responses and by its Bacteria attacking the Miner.

The game ends in a win for the Miner if they collect all 8 different Crystals, and the Beast wins by digesting the Miner after four Bacteria of the same type have attacked.

Of course, there’s always the possibility that the Miner will simply pass through the Beast’s system, and then the player with the most points wins!

Terminator RPG
The official tabletop roleplaying game based on the 1984 movie, 'The Terminator' & all associated Dark Horse Comic graphic novels.

Join the Human Resistance. The world is a wasteland—broken by the machines we built. Our own creations, our own hubris. Not in some distant future. Today. Now. The machines think they have won.  But there is one last chance for humankind, a secret weapon that Skynet in its infinite calculations could never have anticipated—you.

Play in any time zone—including the 1980s and future war. All the main characters from the movie, such as Sarah Connor, Kyle Reese, and the T-800 are included, as is content from the graphic novels and all all-new, never seen before Terminator variants and hardware.
