Tabletop Game News of the Week â Gameapalooza Round Up for 5 October through October 11, 2015
If you pre-order âSapiensâ direct from IELLO, you will score 8 double promo tiles. We like the look of this one and wish we were rich enough to actually afford it.
It feels like âStar Trek: Attack Wingâ is getting new figs left right and center, so, another week, another figure announcement. This time itâs the Xindi getting a crack. The Xindi Weapon Zero premium figure is set to hit in December. Itâs got a USD RRP of $40 and features a 4 inch in diameter miniature, ship cards and tokens.
Becca Scott and Ivan Norman will be playing âLanternsâ for season the 4 opener of âTabletopâ. Will Wheaton made the announcement on a live stream play of the game with the pair on Geek & Sundry. Oh and âPillowlordâ may also make an appearance.
A new board game box subscription service is here in the form of âBoard Game Bentoâ. Each month you will get at least $80 worth of tabletop goodness for a set fee. A sort of Lootcrate, but for board games. You can check it out at the Board Game Bento website.
Lootcrate for Board Games? Yes Please! Board Game Bento.
Lead designer of the âPathfinderâ RPG – Jason Bulmahn – is releasing a new tabletop game next month in the form of âPirate Lootâ. Described as a fast-paced card game, âPirate Lootâ sees players recruiting pirates to snatch more loot than the other pirates. Itâs 2-4 players and has a US RRP of $20.
âTactic Gamesâ expands into the US – via independent reps – with the release of its latest two-player strategy game âKalevaâ. Older releases also available are deck-building game âTerra Evolution: Tree of Lifeâ, dominoes-based game âMexican Trainâ, area control/bluffing game âRealm of Wonderâ and world builder âKings of Mithril“.
More from WizKids, this time itâs all about webslinger spidey. Dice Masters is getting an Amazing Spider-Man set in November. âThe Marvel Dice Masters: The Amazing SpiderÂ-Man Starter Set features fan-favorite characters like SpiderÂ-Man, Ghost Rider, Kingpin, and more! Marvel Dice Masters: The Amazing SpiderÂ-Man also premieres the Sinister Six, Allies, Underdogs, and other exciting mechanics!â.
Web slinging in Dicemasters… err.. dice slinging.
Remember those Steve Jackson Games âMunchkin: Guest Artist Editionsâ we reported on a few weeks back. Well SJG have announced the next two editions will be illustrated by Art Baltazar and Katie Cook. Cook is set to do âMunchkin Cthulhu Guest Artist Editionâ which will release next year. Baltazar is – unsurprisingly given his specialty – doing âSuper Munchkin Guest Artist Editionâ, also releasing next year.
Pokemon fans heads up, Pokemon USA is set to release âPokÃ©mon: 2015 World Championship DecksâÂ on November 18. Oddly theyâre not tournament level, even thoughâ¦ well, the theme. The pre-constructed deck includes a pin, WC booklet, WC deck box and the cards with special card backs.
Cool Mini or Not horror board game âThe Others: 7 Sinsâ smashed Kickstarter with a total pledge amount of almost one and a half million dollars. Needless to say the miniatures in this look ridiculously good and thereâs a late pledge option for those who missed out.
And that is your tabletop game news for the week that we never covered in depth. As always we will add to this if anything huge happens over the weekend (and who knows, it might, it’s ESSEN SPIEL 2015 at the moment, so who knows!
Have a great weekend guys and gals… go play games.. go.. get out of here.. shoo.
