The Village Square: September 14, 2017


Break the ice
Fantasy Flight Games announced they will release a Revised Core Set to their Android: Netrunner Living Card Game. The revision promises “to set a new standard, pushing the game into the future— adjusting the base card pool, altering the battlefield, and aging your favorite characters.” It is available now for pre-order.

Looney Labs isn’t done with Fluxx by a long shot. The next stand alone iteration of the wacky card game series will be Doctor Who.  Releasing November 23 in conjunction with the show’s 54th anniversary, expect all your favorites like Cybermen, Daleks, the master and of course the Doctor.

The Finest Hour on the Table
Warlord Games is beginning pre-orders for Blood Red Skies, their new tactical dogfighting game set during the desperate Battle of Britain.  The starter set includes 12 aircraft figures/bases, dice, pilot discs, cards and tools for maneuvers, other aircraft discs and more! Officially releasing in early 2018, various expansions and add-ons are also available.

Happy 7th!
To celebrate the 7th anniversary of 7 Wonders, Repos Productions and Asmodee will release two special expansion packs each with 15 new cards dedicated to Leaders and Cities.

Crime and clockwork
QSF Games will release Noxford to North America later in the fourth quarter 2017. The quick all-card laying game is set in a generic steampunk city with gangs vying for turf and dodging the Bobbies.

I have lots of kids. Board games help me connect with them, while still retaining my sanity...relatively speaking.
