Game On! Resident Evil 2 Boardgame, Starfinder and Necromunda!

Hey gamers! How's the week treating you? We had a few interesting developments in the world of gaming this week, so let's dive right in and find out more, shall we? Firstly, yesterday saw the final reveal of Steamforged Game's newest product - the Resident Evil 2 Boardgame. They've been sneaking out their Trash Panda Metropolis poster for a little while now, so those of us in the know knew that something Resident Evil was coming (Racoon City?), but I am pleasantly surprised that it's going to focus on Resident Evil 2. I see it as the apex of the series, when the focus was very much on a zombie apocalypse, with the weirder creatures only really showing up the...

Can Board Games Tackle Corruption?

As you’ve probably realised by now, we’re a massive fan of games of all kinds. Tabletop and board games can really bring people together, and if you play them regularly can also foster a sense of community. But now there’s a group in Indonesia who are trying to use board games to help tackle the issue of corruption in the country. Al Jazeera reported on the efforts by Saya Perempuan Anti-Korupsi (SPAK), a group of activists who have developed a simple game called Semai. This game is designed to teach people about corruption on all its levels, but particularly the everyday occurrences that need to change if there is to be a real culture shift. SPAK is taking it into...

NY Toy Fair Unveils New Board Games

The New York Toy Fair is a great place to visit if you want some inspiration of new and exciting games to get involved with (so we’ve been told), and this year it seems it’s no different. Among the games getting the most attention are two spin-offs from the Rick & Morty TV show, with each game based on an episode from the cult hit series. The first is a board game named Anatomy Park, where you essentially take on the role of Morty who has to build an amazing theme park - the only catch is that it’s while you’re miniature and inhabiting the body of a homeless man (remember that episode in season one?). Also stemming from the...

Tantalising Details About The Last Jedi Revealed

There’s precious little to go on when it comes to what to expect in the next installment of Star Wars, but every now and then an interesting detail is leaked. According to Making Star Wars, one of the new planets set to feature in The Last Jedi could be the home of the First Order, and therefore where Supreme Leader Snoke is based. The website acknowledges that this is pure supposition on their part at this stage, having heard limited details from a source about this particular world - namely that it’s like Mars with snow on it, and that the interiors are not dissimilar to Starkiller Base, where you can see the tech and architecture blending in with the...

It's cold and grey. Time for games!

Hey Gamers!  It's that cold time of year when outside is a hostile place and inside begins to inspire cabin fever. Even the dogs don't want to go out. Seriously, let me sleep! My cure; begin a project!  Not sure where to start this year. Last year I dove into Guild Ball - I painted up some teams, designed a token range and went to a few tournaments. I will finish these Alchemists! Honest! I also painted a themed ALEPH army for Infinity and came up with a terrain line (which will go on sale soon, I promise). Fear my vanilla ALEPH list.  So what next? It's been an interesting year for gaming, with some great new games being released...
