Welcome back to the blog, players! While you're here, if anyone has seen where January went, point me in the right direction. It's a complete mystery to me.
Time for some new releases! Following the success of our foray into board games, we've got some spooky additions. Mysterium
was 2016's Game Of The Year in France, and for good reason! Players - some mediums and one ghost - are holding a seance to discover how the ghost met their grisly end, but the ghost can't communicate on this plane, and must guide the mediums with cryptic clues. A must for any fans of Cluedo, the supernatural, or just great games!
Dead Of Winter
is our other new offering, featuring a very different sort of undead. The mechanics in this one are really great. A co-operative game on the surface - stay together and survive the zombie breakout, you know the drill - the twist here is that each player generates their own personal agenda. It might fit quite nicely into the group's overall plans, or you might generate an embittered outcast with a grude against the entire colony! Ultimately, the game is won or lost by these personal quests, boosting this game way out of the typical "merry band of survivors" territory. You don't have to be the fastest, just faster than the slowest! You can order Dead of Winter here
When you want something completely different, you never have to look further than Cardfight!! Vanguard
. The latest offering from the planet of Cray (yes, really!) is The Awakening Zoo. We've previewed the set, we love it, and you can order it here!
I think the art in particular is some of the best I've seen from C!!FV - is January the month you take the Vanguard plunge?
Finally, we look to the grim darkness of the far future. For once, there's a light at the end of the tunnel, and it's ten thousand massive gold terminators! Codex: Adeptus Custodes
is here, the first time such a publication has ever existed in 30 years of Warhammer 40,000, and there has been a hype-storm around them like you wouldn't believe. With good reason! The Emperor's finest are a real force to be reckoned with, combining the absolute best of martial prowess and wargear.
As seems to be the standard for new Codices, this one comes with a new special character. Trajann Valoris
is the new man to watch, as the golden legion
marches forth. Don't miss out!
That's all for now, players. We hope there's plenty in here to inspire you, and we'll see you next week!
