Tabletop Game News Roundup of the Week

This week at the site we ran our epic interview with tabletop game designer Antoine Bauza. We held our breath and took a look at “Scuba” from Keep Exploring Games. We let you know that “Guns & Steel” had a nifty expansion / standalone game up on Kickstarter in the form of “Guns & Steel: Renaissance” from Grail Games. We donned helms and took a peek at Blue Orange Games upcoming title “Vikings on Board” and we also took a look at some super awesome tabletop game dice from U.S. based company Easy Roller Dice Co.

Now onto the rest of the tabletop game / board game news we didn’t cover in full this week here in the land of Australia… oh and don’t forget to vote Saturday!

Islebound releasing August
After a long wait since its Kickstarter last year, Red Raven Games are finally bringing “Islebound” to the retail market. “Islebound” sees players building up their cities, trading and even invading. If you’re a fan of Red Raven’s “Above and Below” you may well want to stick this on your radar given the similarities. Another lovely thing from Ryan Laukat. USD MSRP is set at $50 so expect to pay around $100 for this when it releases here in Australia.

Angry Ocean for Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot
If you have Portal Games title “Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot’ and you’re feeling like a little expansion love is in order you don’t have long to wait. “Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot: Angry Ocean” is just around the corner, set to release at Gen Con, so expect a retail release Q3.

Party game Speak Out from Hasbro
Hasbro are at it again with yet another party game, this time in the form of “Speak Out”. Where this one differs is that it’s an adult game, with Hasbro most well known for the children’s market. “Speak Out” is set to release in August and sees players having to say difficult things whilse wearing a special mouthpiece (sounds sanitary). So if you want to see your friends make twits of themselves and film it, “Speak Out” might just be the game you’re looking for.

That’s it for another week of tabletop game news Australia, we’ll be back next week with more articles, reviews and news.
Peace Out!
