With all the hype around Avengers: Endgame dominating social media, you could be forgiven for thinking that everything else had ground to a standstill. But the mighty god-machine of the tabletop gaming industry strides on, and we've noticed some very cool things happening. The first that springs to mind is Looncurse. This looks like an absolute delight: bonkers goblins bouncing into battle against the Sylvaneth. It looks like the game comes with its own campaign, which is a nice touch.
