Tabletop Game News of the Week â Gameapalooza Round Up for 7 December through December 13, 2015
Ugh, another one bites the dust. A couple of the team backed “Wits & Wagers: Epic Geek“, but alas, this week it was canceled and is now set to return to Kickstarter for a relaunch in Jun 2016.
âLove Letter: Star Warsâ is out, if youâre Russian. Thanks to licensing issues, the only place you can presently get the Star Wars version of popular card game âLove Letterâ is in Russia. Itâs all in Russian, so start brushing up if you want it fast. Titled “Star Wars: The Secret Invasion” you have to infiltrate the Death Star to help Princess Leia escape from prison. It’s available at Hobby World.
Star Wars The Secret Invasion aka Star Wars Love Letter .. save a cooler princess… not that she needs saving.
Valiant Universe is getting its own deck building game, in the aptly titled âValiant Universe: The Deckbuilding Gameâ. Itâs set to release mid 2016 and focuses – unsurprisingly – on the superheroes and characters of the Valiant Universe. Catalyst Game Labs are publishing.
Plaid Hat Games announced a bit more info on the expansion decks for âAshes: Rise of the Phoenixbornâ.

Much hyped âThe Big Book of Madnessâ has itâs âproperâ release finally, via IELLO. This is a gorgeous looking game, weâre looking forward to nabbing it, next year, when some in the team know what money is again. How about you?

Cool Mini Or Not (CMON) is wooing retailers with exclusive Zombicide: Black Plague crossover cards if they purchase a certain amount of âB-Sieged: Sons of the Abyssâ. Promos will not be available to plebs like us, just some KS backers and at conventions. Meh.
Spotted on Kickstarter this week:
Ben Yetman contacted us and asked us to get word out about his new project âChompedâ a mini game board game. We kind of thought it looked a bit like âCraniumâ, so if you like that kind of party game, check out âChompedâ on Kickstarter.
That’s it, nothing else grabbed us on Kickstarter in the world of tabletop gaming this week. If you spot something you think is awesome, drop it in the comments.
Digital Tabletop Crossover
âMagic the Gathering: Puzzle Questâ is now available for your mobile device. Be warned a few in the Gameapalooza team played the original Puzzle Quest back in the dayâ¦ it will suck your very life away, so unless you know Miracle Max personally, tread carefully. Itâs out on both iOS and Android.
