Gen Con 2018 Video Blitz Funded in Under 24 hours!

Thu, 06/21/2018 - 02:11

Those of you that follow me know that the Gen Con Video Blitz is a relaunch of our canceled Season 8 Kickstarter. I knew I was going to fund pretty early on, but I didn’t expect to achieve it before Monday! So how did I know? I think, in part, it was because I already had some publicity from the  full season Kickstarter attempt.  The clincher was when I saw people pledging that I had never heard of. I knew that it was going to go all the way.  We still haven’t had everyone hop back on board yet from the previous project, and we are moving through stretch goals already!  While I am it it check this out:

Not bad for twenty hours!

With that said the first stretch goal has already been met, which is the Road to Gen Con 2018.  The Road to Gen Con is my crazy way of communicating with people before the show. I did this a couple of years ago and I had a blast.  One of the first things I will do for the Road To Gen Con is create a landing page for it.  Then I will start reaching out to publishers for some inside information to promote them at Gen Con. There will be live Kickstarter videos on the topic of Gen Con – schedule coming soon.  The Road to Gen Con will also include the most complete miniature and RPG release I can muster.  No board games BGG has cornered the market on that one.

There are a lot of stretch goals to unlock and the rewards are awesome so don’t hesitate to check it out!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For more great rewards check out the Kickstarter!

I’m so glad that so many people believe in what Through Gamer Goggles does, and I’m even happier they want to be a part of it.

Thank you,

Matt Lemke

Asmodee Digital to Bring Board Games to Nintendo Switch

Thu, 06/07/2018 - 00:52

From Asmodee Digital

Carcassonne Coming First, Winter 2018

 

PARIS — June 6, 2018 — Asmodee Digital, the industry leader in digital board game entertainment, announced today it will soon begin publishing games on Nintendo Switch. The first release in Asmodee Digital’s console development strategy will be Carcassonne, the digital version of the award-winning, tile-laying board game, already available for Android, PC and Mac via Steam. The Nintendo Switch™ adaptation will be available in Winter 2018.

 

“Carcassonne is the first Asmodee Digital title of many to follow on Nintendo’s platforms,” says Pierre Ortolan CEO of Asmodee Digital. “This partnership is based on Nintendo’s need for new user experiences, and Asmodee Digital’s continued goal of bringing great board game IPs to new platforms.”


“Bringing Carcassonne to the Nintendo Switch platform is an opportunity to enlarge the success of this iconic game,” said Moritz Brunnhofer, Managing Director, Hans im Glück.

 

Simple to pick up but challenging to master, Carcassonne presents players with endless opportunities for tactical play. Within minutes, players will find themselves in tough situations – determining where to put their last meeple, whether to use tiles to expand the city, or to hinder their opponent. Players place only one tile each round, and have the option to place one meeple on it. Each game develops differently, full of boundless possibilities, and the quick-fire nature of the game ensures that Carcassonne always runs at a brisk pace.

Runequest available from Chaosium

Tue, 06/05/2018 - 16:06

RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha has just been released by Chaosium as an all-new edition of one of the world’s most influential and acclaimed fantasy roleplaying games.

First appearing almost 40 years ago, RuneQuest is as dynamic and vital as ever. This all-new, deluxe edition introduces RuneQuest and its setting of Glorantha to new players everywhere.

“This new edition, also known as “RQG”, has been explicitly written with the goal of approachability, reaching out to new players and gamemasters as well as returning fans, making sure that the game line remains vital and engaging for everyone.” said Chaosium creative director Jeff Richard. “These rules are also backward-compatible with the previous versions of RuneQuest from Chaosium, and the scenarios published for them.”

Lavishly illustrated in full-color throughout, Chaosium has released the core RQG rules as a 443 page PDF, with the physical book to follow in August (just in time for Gen Con). People who buy the PDF from Chaosium.com now will receive a coupon for the full price of the PDF back, when they buy the physical book*. So there’s no need to wait, adventures in Glorantha can start now!

*How this works: The hardcover version will retail for USD$54.95. With the coupon from your PDF purchase you will only pay $27.00 ($54.95 – $27.95 coupon = $27.00).

Four features make RuneQuest distinct among other roleplaying games:

Mythic AdventureRuneQuest began in Greg Stafford’s mythic universe Glorantha, one of the oldest, most detailed, and most influential roleplaying settings ever published. Its influences are Bronze Age cultures where the relationship between mortals and the gods are much stronger. Rather than being myths, the deeds and actions of the gods are history, and are very much active forces in shaping the day-to-day lives of all living things. Culture and Community — Adventurers are strongly tied to their cultures and clans, with compelling family histories, complete with all that entails. They begin play knowing not only who they are, who their family is, what clan they belong to, but with person al history that gives them experience and momentum going forward.

Unique Adventurers — Players can create unique adventurers and customize them as desired, without arbitrary restrictions such as classes or levels. All adventurers can use magic, including powerful Rune spells that channel the very power of the gods. As adventurers progress, they grow along natural lines: skills that are used successful improve, and rather than being limited, the opportunities for development and improve increase dramatically.

Dangerous Combat — Combat in RuneQuest can be dangerous, even deadly, with skirmishes filled the chance of fumbles, critical hits, and strategic tactical choices. Shields can shatter when hit hard enough, limbs can be disabled, and even the weakest of opponents can get off a lucky shot that can take out an experienced foe. RuneQuest’s percentile-based rules system has been used to drive many other wildly-successful games. including Stormbringer, ElfQuest, Ringworld, and most notably Call of Cthulhu, itself one of the most popular roleplaying games worldwide. RuneQuest‘s simple, intuitive system (also known as Basic Roleplaying or BRP) has directly inspired other games, including HeroQuest and King Arthur Pendragon, and been influential to countless other tabletop and computer games. What some early reviewers have said:

“RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha is a landmark, and was even before it was written… it marks the return of one of the most influential and storied games in our hobby back to the house that built it… No other RuneQuest—and this is coming from a guy from whom you’d have to pry his Cults of Prax or Cults of Terror from his cold, dead hands—does Glorantha as well as RQG.”—Andrew Logan Montgomery, Exploring the Otherworlds of Fiction, Magic, and Gaming. “one of the most stunning RPG books ever made”Games Vs Play

CMON Limited Announces Narcos: The Board Game Based on Netflix Original Series

Tue, 05/22/2018 - 18:16

CMON Limited Announces Narcos: The Board Game Based on Netflix Original Series

Friday, May 11, 2018 – CMON Limited announced today that they have teamed with Gaumont, the oldest film company and producer of Narcos to design and publish Narcos: The Board Game, based on the Golden Globe and Emmy ® award-nominated television series

Currently in production for season 4, Narcos chronicles the true-life rise to power of drug lords and the explosion of cocaine trafficking in the world. Narcos continues to grow in popularity around the world, with season 3 premiering as the most in-demand digital original in the U.S. and one of the top five worldwide according to Parrot Analytics. Available for viewing on the world’s most popular streaming service, Netflix, the show is currently available in over 130 countries.

Narcos: The Board Game, designed by Fel Barros and Renato Sasdelli, puts two to five players in the roles of the series’ most powerful characters and factions as they rewrite the story behind the rise and fall of El Patrón. One person acts as El Patrón, managing a growing narcotics empire while trying to keep their location on the board a secret. The remaining players lead the Hunter Factions: the DEA, Policía Nacional de Colombia, Cali Cartel, and the guerrilla extremist group. These seemingly disparate groups are united in their common interest to discover the hidden position of El Patrón, sharing information and discussing strategies. If the El Patrón player manages to complete their secret objectives without being captured by the Hunters, they win. However, if the Hunters are able to uncover El Patrón’s location, they succeed in their mission and win.

“Working with Gaumont to bring Narcos to the tabletop has been an incredible adventure,” commented David Preti, CMON’s Creative Director. “Every aspect of this game is carefully coordinated with the Gaumont team to ensure that the show fans love is brought to life on the tabletop unlike anyone could have imagined, while also appealing to players who have never seen the show.”

“CMON is known for its focus on high-quality and engaging games and we trust them to develop and design the first Narcos board game title that will allow our millions of Narcos fans to immerse themselves within the storylines and characters of the show” added Tim Stephen, Head of Legal and Business Affairs at Gaumont.

Narcos: The Board Game is scheduled for release in Q4 of 2018 with an SRP of $54.99. Those attending CMON Expo 2018 will be able to see the game firsthand from May 11 to May 13 in Atlanta, GA.

About Narcos

This raw, gritty series chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. It details the many, often-conflicting forces – legal, political, police, military and civilian – that clash in the effort to control cocaine, one of the world’s most valuable commodities.
