Hello, to make up for last week’s lack of things there are lots of things in the shops this week. THINGS.
Let’s have a look at the Esdevium release sheet. I’ll read it over your shoulder while breathing heavily in your ear.
The Hunger Games – Mini figures booster packs. Do these figures do anything? At all? The solicitation says that they come in “gravity feed boosters”. I have no idea what that means. Collect them all and put them in a shrine or something because they’re no good as miniatures.
Quarmageddon – I haven’t played Quarriors but it looks good. *Someone* hasn’t told us about Quarriors yet despite teasing us with a picture of the dice. Don’t worry though because the mighty Shut Up & Sit Down have played it and judged it. Quarmageddon adds more dice to the game. MORE DICE.
Infiltration – Sci-fi thieve ‘em up by the mind behind Citadels. It’s probably good. Is it good? I DON’T KNOW. I’d like to find out though…
Fortress America – The long awaited return of the classic ‘Ameritrash’ game. I haven’t played it. Umm… It’s got 300 figures. 300! You can invade other board games with your army. Memoir ’44 would be conquered by your 300 strong army men.
Deathwing Space Marine Pack – An expansion for Death Angel, the Space Hulk-lite card game. This expansion will let you play as the Dark Angel marines from the eponymous Deathwing. Death Angel is a good game, it’s hard and you die screaming in glorious battle. A lot. Deathwing will probably give you the delusion that you’ve got a chance. You haven’t.
Warhammer RPG Expansion-palooza – There are three card expansion for FFG’s bizarre Warhammer RPG. I think the game is bizarre because it replaces all numbers on dice with symbols. This confuses and troubles me. I have played it as a Bright Wizard but stopped when I found the spells to be woefully weak in comparison to the rest of the party’s abilities. I became a meathead Troll Slayer instead and had much more fun. But those feelings of wizard inadequacy could be squashed by the Bright Wizard expansion set. SPELLS. WIZARD. Dreadfleet Captains seems to be a cash-in on Games Workshop’s Dreadfleet game but if you want strange boat captains in your campaign, you can go buy ‘em. Finally, Faith of Sigmar adds some more prayer based smiting for your priest of Sigmar.
There’s more stuff out there, just have a look at the sheet and see. Join me next week when I’ll provide you with more useless opinions on games I haven’t played.
