GW Pre-Orders Postponed

A strange announcement on Warhammer.com has stated that they are pausing pre-orders for a while. 

A statement on the site read "It’s still a pretty weird time for anyone making physical products and shipping them around the globe. There are loads of fantastic things on the way over the next few months, but we have to make some changes to when the next batch of incredible Warhammer releases come out, and we wanted to keep you up to date with everything that’s going on".

This follows on from a pre-order of their latest game Cursed City which left may fans disgruntled, due to what appeared to be low levels of stock, meaning many were disappointed as they were unable to order the game.

The statement continued "Everyone at Games Workshop is working really hard to get all of your orders to you in good time ..... With this in mind, over the next couple of weeks, there will be a short pause where we’ll have no new pre-orders".

Alien RPG: 

Chariot of the Gods

Alien RPG

Published by Free League Publishing 

                

The ALIEN tabletop roleplaying game is a beautifully illustrated 392-page full-color hardcover book, both presenting the world of ALIEN in the year 2183 and a fast and effective ruleset designed specifically to enhance the ALIEN experience. The game can be played in two distinct game modes:

Cinematic play is based on pre-made scenarios that emulate the dramatic arc of an ALIEN film. Designed to be played in a single session, this game mode emphasizes high stakes and fast and brutal play. You are not all expected to survive.

Campaign play is designed for longer continuous play with the same cast of player characters over many game sessions, letting you explore the ALIEN universe freely, sandbox style.

The rules of the game are based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, used in award-winning games such as Tales from the Loop and Mutant: Year Zero, but adapted and further developed to fully support and enhance the core themes of ALIEN: horror and action in the cold darkness of space.

Hivernation

 

Workers vs Drones! A mind-buzzing 2-player tile laying strategy game inspired by games like Othello and Honey Bees!

Hivernation is a tile laying strategy game that offers 3 Game Modes.

 

In Hivernation, players assume control of one of two factions, Drone bees or Worker bees. Each player takes turns building a hive around Queen Zizi, the matriarch and anchor of the game. As the hive develops players can add to their bees by playing bee tiles from their hand or converting their opponent's bee tiles using the Pincer Movement. They can also play specialty tiles from their stack to convert their opponent's bees as well. The goal? Have the most of your bees face up by the end of the game. The player with the most bees face up dominates the hive and wins the game!

 

Hivernation has dusted off an ancient mechanic, polished it up and given it a modern twist. With streamlined game play, Hivernation is easy to learn but challenging to master!
