What You Missed…

planklogoA fun week here at TOG. Thanks for joining us; here’s what you might have missed.

AEG announced they’re bringing the surprise Essen hit Trains to the US.

We reviewed the classic card game filler Coloretto.

Then we had the opportunity to bother the gracious Eric Lang for another interview. Now with 100% more Monty Python!

And finally, we brought you Walk The Plank!, a new Kickstarter project from a couple of Firestone’s pals.

Next week, we’ll be reviewing The Great Heartland Hauling Co., and bringing you more news, reviews, interviews, and shampoos nevermind…we’re both bald. Thanks for reading!

Trains3Dbox1-271x300Alderac Entertainment Group, which has recently been dominating our posts, is at it again with some big news today. This coming summer they will be releasing the long-awaited US edition of Trains. Trains was a surprise Essen success—selling out on the first day—and gamers have been clamoring for another printing ever since!

From the AEG Website: “This English edition of Trains, designed by Hisashi Hayashi, features updated graphics, artwork, and streamlined card abilities. With extensive replay value, Trains is one game you won’t want to leave the station without!”

They’ve also posted the complete rulebook for your reading pleasure.

Thanks for reading our blog, we love it when you tell your friends, families, heck…even your enemies about us! Don’t forget the Facebooky, Twitter things!
