Dragonfire Play Through and Review

Wed, 04/18/2018 - 16:01

My Dragonfire play through and review. This is my first attempt at a real play through.  I hope you like it. I do believe  I made an error or 2. I think i’m going to post a follow up video that is a play through of the first round. I learned a lot and had all kinds of problems with software. That caused issues with YouTube postponing the publication of this video. In other words I’m sorry this took so long.

Click here to view the video on YouTube.

With it all said and done I can say that I thoroughly enjoy Dragonfire and I hope to see a lot of expansion items for it in the future.

Fantasy Flight Games’ Lovecraft-inspired board game gets a stand-alone adventure game early 2019

PARIS — April 17, 2018 — Asmodee Digital, the industry leader in digital board games, announced today that it will publish a brand-new adventure game based on Fantasy Flight Games’ Mansions of Madness, an award-winning board game celebrated for its high production values, Lovecraft-inspired art, and unique fusion of physical and digital gameplay mechanics. Developed by Luckyhammers, the Mansions of Madness: Mother’s Embrace video game is the next evolution of the iconic game and is scheduled to hit Steam (PC/Mac) early 2019.

In Mansions of Madness: Mother’s Embrace, players will lead a team of investigators through an eerie mansion while uncovering its dark secrets. Everything is not what it seems as the investigators encounter traps, monsters, and other Lovecraftian horrors, and descend deeper into the depths of madness. Will your team solve the mystery and make it out alive?

“At Asmodee Digital, we’re focused on creating new digital experiences based on beloved board-game IPs. The characters, adventures and universe introduced in the Mansions of Madness board game lend themselves well to an adventure video game, and we look forward to bringing the IP to life in a new way,” said Philippe Dao, Chief Marketing Officer of Asmodee Digital. “We have a passion for board games and want to take risks to elevate the genre. Working alongside great partners like Fantasy Flight Games and Luckyhammers allows us to do that.”

3D Printable Scenery for Everyone – from From Printable Scenery

Mon, 04/16/2018 - 14:50

Hello Everyone,

When I say everyone I mean wargamers, role-players, and even board gamers. Today I would like to share with you a new find that can be used in just about every facet of tabletop gaming. 3D printable terrain from Printable Scenery.  3D printers a re a thing and we many of us have toyed with the idea of using them for our ridiculous game ideas. Some of us may have even purchased one and followed through with those ideas. I have not.

When I first discovered Printable Scenery I thought they were 3d paper scenery pdf.  then I visited the website and said “What!” I had no idea that they were plastic – I don’t know what IO was thinking. Then I discovered they recently did a kickstarter for Lost Islands. If you are like me and you can never have enough terrain check it out.


The models are super detailed, better than a lot of high end pieces on the market. I just did my taxes and I hope the wife and I can fit the late pledge into our budget.

Here is a small gallery of what they have to offer

A nice looking coastline for pirates of Vikings to plunder!

Just the backside of a ship – pretty sexy.


The pirates have arrived!



The orc or goblin protective line.


This is a great set up fr any goblin or orc village or just great terrain for Kings of War.


I really can’t speak for the images above beyond what you see. I have never held them or touched them sadly. But I find the images to be striking enough that I want to make a full table or two.  I really like the idea of using the ruined village pieces for Frostgrave.

Altipalno from Renegade Games Studio

Wed, 04/11/2018 - 22:59

The inhabitants of the Altiplano, the high plateau between the Easter and Western Andes, need to be creative to develop the scant vegetation and the available resources.

By fishing at Lake Titicaca, mining ore in the mountains, breeding alpacas, and actively trading local goods, the inhabitants generate continually grow in wealth.

New production sites are built, orders are fulfilled, and goods are stored for hard times. And road construction should not be neglected either, as that is needed to speed up development.

The inhabitant who best uses his potential will have the highest yield in the end!

Clades From Atlas Games Ships in April

Wed, 04/11/2018 - 20:49
Clades Ships in April

A “clade” is a complete branch of the evolutionary family tree, like mammals, arthropods (“bugs”), and sauropsids (reptiles and birds together).

Clades and Clades Prehistoric are versions of a card game where players must quickly scan an array of cards on the table — as well as their own private card — to make triples as quickly as possible. The player who spots the most is the winner.

Clades and Clades Prehistoric were created by Jonathan Tweet and Karen Lewis, the author and illustrator of the Grandmother Fish, a children’s book about evolution.

James Ernest promotes himself to “Super President for Life”

Wed, 04/11/2018 - 16:35
James Ernest promotes himself to “Super President for Life”
General concern for Ernest outweighed by potential profit Seattle, WA—April 1, 2018. Concerned that the title “President” is being shared much too liberally, James Ernest of Cheapass Games has decided to give himself a promotion to Super President for Life. His new job responsibilities include seeing the future, winnowing the wheat from the chaff, and boiling away the sea with his heat vision.

Ernest considered several other titles for this new position, including “Lord-Emperor,” “President Plus,” and “Chief Naming Officer” before finally settling on a title which he hopes will not be tarnished through massive overuse.

The staff of Cheapass Games are pleased and proud of their new Super President. “I think it’s great,” says marketing director Cassidy Werner. “He seems happier now, and that means less hassle for the rest of us.”

Vice President Carol Monahan added “I don’t particularly care what he calls himself, as long as he thinks up a decent game every few years.”

To celebrate his promotion, Ernest ate the last half-donut in the box and enjoyed five minutes of Candy Crush Saga. Then it was back to the darkness of the basement to write press releases and dream of a better world.

Asmodee Digital Bringing Terraforming Mars to Steam, iOS, and Android

Fri, 04/06/2018 - 12:46

Asmodee Digital Bringing Terraforming Mars to Steam, iOS, and Android


Invade Space on PC and Mobile with Updated Graphics and Beyond


PARIS — April 4, 2018 — Asmodee Digital, the industry leader in digital board game entertainment, announced today they are bringing Fryxgames’ award-winning strategy board game, Terraforming Mars, to Steam (PC), Google Play, and the Apple App Store. Developed by LUCKYHAMMERS, the digital edition of Terraforming Mars will launch into Early Access in May and full launch happening later in Q2 of this year.


Faithfully developed alongside the game’s original creator, Jacob Fryxelius, the digital edition of Terraforming Mars is a true adaptation of the cult classic board game. Each player competes as a powerful corporation tasked with terraforming the Red Planet. Players create oceans, plant forests, import resources from Earth, and more in an effort to make Mars habitable for human life. Mars may be an unforgiving planet, but the real enemies are the competing organizations who will stop at nothing to claim Mars for themselves by sabotaging resources, crashing asteroids into fields, and wreaking havoc on mission-critical systems.


Players can compete across several game modes including two unique single-player modes where the player can play solo (just like the board game) or against AI controlled opponents, pass-and-play local multiplayer, and +online multiplayer in intense turn-based strategic gameplay.


“Terraforming Mars captured our imagination the moment we laid our eyes on it. Not only is it the most demanded and highest rated board game since its launch in 2016, it’s a far out trip to Mars!” says Philippe Dao, Chief Marketing Officer of Asmodee Digital. “We’re thrilled to work alongside Fryxgames in bringing their masterpiece to life for digital audiences.”


The physical edition of Terraforming Mars launched in 2016 and became an instant cult classic among board game enthusiasts. The game was named one of the best 50 games of 2016 by Popular Mechanics, ars technica listed the game as one of its 20 best games of 2016, and Vulture called it “the best high strategy game of 2016.”

Featuring Starfinder Pact Worlds and Pathfinder Adventure Path: Songbird, Scion, Saboteur (War for the Crown 2 of 6)

REDMOND, WASHINGTON (March 29, 2018): Paizo Inc. published six new products in March in its Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder Adventure Card Game lines. They are available for purchase at game retailers and now.

Starfinder Pact Worlds

The Pact Worlds are the beating heart of the Starfinder campaign setting, a solar system full of citizens both familiar and bizarre. From the cosmopolitan corridors of Absalom Station to the carnivorous jungles of Castrovel or the floating cloud-cities of the gas giant Bretheda, this 216-page hardcover rulebook is your guide to Starfinder’s core worlds and civilizations, and the perfect place to launch any adventure.

Starfinder Flip-Mat: Space Station

Whether the heroes are defending a bustling space station from invading aliens or just looking for shore leave after a long voyage through deep space, no Game Master wants to spend precious game time drawing every airlock, bulkhead, and corridor. Fortunately, with Paizo’s latest Starfinder Flip-Mat, you don’t have to! This line of gaming maps provides ready-to-use science-fantasy set pieces for the busy Game Master. This double-sided map features the parklike commercial center of a futuristic station on one side and the cramped corridors of an industrial platform on the other, providing the perfect setting for any space-based adventure.

Don’t waste time sketching when you could be playing. With Starfinder Flip-Mat: Space Station, you’ll always be ready next time your players dock at a new station!

Pathfinder Adventure Path: Songbird, Scion, Saboteur (War for the Crown 2 of 6)

The county of Meratt is Taldor in a microcosm: a once-glorious land left to decay by negligent nobles. But to help secure Princess Eutropia’s bid for the throne, bold adventurers must now infiltrate her ancestral homeland and overthrow the corrupt Count Lotheed from within, gaining allies and solving problems left to fester far too long. Can they play idle noble by day and hero by night well enough to reverse the county’s fortunes, or will the weight of history’s sins be too crushing a burden?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the War for the Crown Adventure Path. War for the Crown is a major part of Paizo’s 2018 publishing program, with monthly Adventure Path volumes and support products released throughout the year.

As the political scene in the ancient kingdom of Taldor explodes into chaos, players take the roles of agents, advocates and saboteurs working for Princess Eutropia to help secure her claim to the throne and prevent the nation from collapsing into civil war. Along the way, the heroes must recover secrets of Taldor’s past — many deliberately hidden — and grow from relative nobodies to powerful politicians and spymasters in the deadliest political arena in the Inner Sea!

  • Complete monthly campaign running February 2018-July 2018
  • Golarion’s timeline thunders forward with a new destiny for Taldor in a thrilling campaign of espionage and intrigue that mixes James Bond with Game of Thrones! Your heroes decide the fate of the nation, and perhaps that of the whole Inner Sea Region!
  • Pathfinder Pawns, Poster Map Folios, and Pathfinder Battles miniatures tie-ins enrich the fantasy!

Pathfinder Player Companion: Merchant’s Manifest

Some say that money makes the world go round, and Golarion’s merchants make this a reality. Pathfinder Player Companion: Merchant’s Manifest examines commerce through the lens of important trade hubs such as Absalom, Goka, and Katapesh, where smart shoppers can secure myriad fine wares. Whether you’re aiming to purchase a rare item, hire on with a trade organization, or make your fortune on your own, this player-focused volume is your key to success.

This Pathfinder Player Companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but it can be easily incorporated into any fantasy world.

Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Forest Fire

Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Forest Fire features two different scenes of fiery destruction to challenge even the most stout-hearted or foolhardy adventurer! One side shows flames roiling across a remote forested highland, while the other depicts a small lakeside settlement threatened on all sides by an approaching conflagration. This portable, affordable map measures 24″ × 30″ unfolded and 8″ × 10″ folded. Designed for experienced GMs and novices alike, and usable with both dry erase and wet erase markers, Pathfinder Flip-Mats fit perfectly into any Game Master’s arsenal!

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Ultimate Combat Add-On Deck

Improve your fighting prowess with new cards for enhancing your combat lifestyle. Chock full of enough armors and weapons for any war you might wage, the Ultimate Combat Add-On Deck can be used with any Pathfinder Adventure Card Game character or Adventure Path. Or you can play with the brand-new character included in this 109-card box: Hayato, the iconic samurai. Get ready for action with the Ultimate Combat Add-On Deck!
