Whether you’re participating in International Tabletop Day, playing with your usual gaming group, or just decide to play a game or two, I hope your Saturday is fun and fulfilling. And if it isn’t then, hey, least you’re not at work, right?
Land, Air, and Sea
Tiny Epic Series designer Scott Almes and Gamelyn Games announced their next project, Heroes of Land, Air & Sea. It will be Kickstarted January 26, 2017, and promises to be “a 4X-style board game with miniatures that tells the epic tale of orcs vs. humans, dwarves vs. elves, battling kingdoms, and the individuals who turn the tides of war.”
Trick of the Rails
Terra Nova will release Trick of the Rails, a game by Hisashi Hayashi. It’s based on the “rise of the American railway period… [and]combines 18XX-like portfolio management and trick-taking.”
Coming soon: a new edition of the ever-popular Mr. Jack, the “classic game of deduction and deception” featuring players acting as Jack and trying to escape the police or becoming one of the detectives trying to track down the criminal.
The multiverses of Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons meet up in Plane Shift: Zendikar, “a sort of supplement to The Art of Magic: The Gathering—Zendikar, designed to help you take the world details and story seeds contained in that book and turn them into an exciting D&D campaign.”
NSKN Games announced its new imprint, Strawberry Studio, and three new games on the publishing schedule: 3 Wishes, Crazy 5, and Mistfall (a standalone expansion for Mistfall?).
The Pathfinder Adventure Card Game has finally arrived in the App Store and the Play Store.
