13/11/2016 – 20/11/2016
What happened in the world of tabletop over the last week?
PAXAus was a few weekends ago now, but interesting articles on it aren’t abating. Games vs Play gave a detailed account of their time in the tabletop area.
Wargame publisher Warlord Games revealed that it will be opening a physical storefront. There aren’t many details at the moment, but Tabletop Gaming covered the fundamentals.
Monopoly. Yahtzee. Connect Four. These games are classics that haven’t really made the leap into the current tabletop trend. Until now. Hasbo announced the release of Clue: Star Wars. If that won’t get the board game geeks into Clue, I don’t know what will.
CMON are such a tease. In fact, this is their second round of teasing. You flirts! Having already taken readers through The World of SMOG, they have now started looking at The Gentlemen of Rise of Moloch. Starting with this impressively moustached fellow, Major Dreadful.
In the UK the Bloodborne card game has been delayed. Tabletop Gaming went into a little more depth on the hold up.
The new TCG Final War was released during PAXAus. Tabletop game designer, writer and media-guy Al Caynes took a look at the title. You can tell the man knows his stuff when he declares the box as ‘heavy’.
