Vikings

By Jeremiah

Well we all know my obsession with pirate-type games, and vikings are pretty much pirates of the frozen north, so this one looks right up my alley.

Essen, the BIG con over in Europe, is coming up soon, and like any major con we’re seeing an influx of games that are releasing around that time. Read the rest of this entry »

SudseeImpossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.

– Napoleon Bonaparte

Some may say that it’s impossible to catch up with the popularity of the likes of Monopoly and Settlers of Catan, but Carcassonne is doing its best to pump out fresh versions, expansions, and editions of the game until the market is oversaturated. Hans im Gluck, publisher of Carcassonne, announced the franchise’s next step toward that end.

The Lord of the Rings Dice-Building Game—Order NOW!

20 02 2013

If there’s one thing that continues to baffle myself (Jeremiah) and probably Firestone too, it’s that most game companies don’t publicize street dates/release dates for their titles.

For instance, this last December we were expecting the Star Wars card game from Fantasy Flight to hit stores in January. Turns out it was on shelves in December, with little fanfare from Fantasy Flight themselves. Anyway…I say all of that to say this.

Over on Amazon they’re taking orders for Wizkids’ latest dice-building title: The Lord of the Rings Dice Building Game. According to Amazon they will be shipping the game on February 28, which means there’s a good chance it could hit shelves the same day—if not sooner. We’re both big fans of Quarriors, and the dice-building mechanic; add to that the spiffy Tolkien theme and we’re pretty much in hog heaven!

You can order the game on Amazon Right HERE!
