Asmodee add Ystari and Pearl Games to their list of acquisitions, which recently includes Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder. Ystari Games portfolio includes Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective, while Pearl Games produce Deus - amongst others. One wonders where this will all lead with one company being responsible for such a huge stock of some of the best games available at the moment. Source.
I've been looking for stock for the highly-rated and much-in-demand post-Zombie-apocalypse survival game Dead of Winter. Games stores have been resupplied in the past few days but, such is the demand, they're selling out as quickly as they get it in! 365games.co.uk had stock for around an hour before it sold out. At present the only place I've found it is Hellfire Gaming - for £44.50 plus delivery (£7.45) - so £51.95 in total. Update: 22/01/2015 (14:23): Hellfire Gaming are out of stock once more. Third-parties on Amazon.co.uk are charging stupid prices (£75) right now. Best to wait! Update: 20/01/2015 (13:34): Hellfire Gaming have stock again. A third-party on Amazon.co.uk also have it at £49.99 including delivery. Update: 17/01/2015 (15:20): Hellfire Gaming have sold out
I spotted the launch of the Tiny Epic Galaxies Kickstarter - and by the time I took a look at the page it had already far-exceeded it's meagre target of $15,000. It's still growing - now at $236,000 with 22 days to go. I watched the video and thought it looked like it could be fun. Then I saw there was a print-and-play available. For free, no-less! (more…)
A number of US Amazon customers who've pre-ordered Star Wars: Armada have received updated shipping dates for the game - with the date moving forward from the end of April to early-March. March 4, 2015, specifically. However the Amazon US site has it listed as unavailable. (more…)
"So this is it. It's all over. Years of elite training and it comes to this; burying my comrades on some Outer Rim backwater. Perhaps, while their guard's down, I can make a break for it..." - PL-21226, Yavin 4 Imperial Assault Campaign Report : Mission One - Aftermath I finally had the chance to start a Star Wars: Imperial Assault campaign at the Manchester Tabletop meet-up on Monday. Five us played through the tutorial again as an introduction and straight away everybody was eager to try out the first campaign mission - so the tutorial did it's job of selling the game! Spoiler alert: If you've not played the campaign, but plan to, don't read any further. I've aimed to minimise the information given away but inevitably some details will be revealed. (more…)
It looks like there's been a reprint recently of Betrayal on House on the Hill as it's available on Amazon and in Manchester's game stores for around £36. It's been on my "should take a look at" list since I saw it on Wil Wheaton's Table Top, so I expect it'll be reaching my tabletop in the not-too-distant future!
