What happened in the world of tabletop over the last week?
Things went suddenly quite here at The Campaigner recently. Readers of the latest issue will have a little bit of insight into why, but we’ll discuss it further at a later date. So while we ramp back into all things tabletop (and just in time for Christmas) we have a mixture of old and current news!
We all think we have a pretty good handle on what a game is. Or do we?
Dungeons & Dragons will make its way back to the realm of digital games.
The Game Manufacturers Association is sporting a new visual style. Looking good there, GAMA!
Just what Monopoly needed. More Monopoly.
No news is… good news? Fellow tabletop media website Tabletop Wire announced its shutdown after a year of operation.
Featured crowdfunding campaign
Tipping Point: the climate change card game
Players build cities while trying to survive extreme weather disasters that become more and more common as carbon dioxide accumulates in the air. The goal of the game is to grow, sustain and protect a large population.
Tipping Point is for 2-4 players and is semi-cooperative. It has a goal of AUD$16,531 and has so far raised over AUD$4,050 with 23 days still to go. The campaign is being run by GameSmith, and is its fifth, with one successfully funding.
