Game of Thrones Poisoned Spear

Throughout the A Tale of Champions cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, unique knights, lords, and ladies have assembled to observe the spectacles of battle and to use such assemblies to further their hidden agendas. Now the inevitable confrontations come to a head in the cycle’s final Chapter Pack, A Poisoned Spear! Its new cards continue to support the melee format’s layered alliances and enmities, as well as the new Melee and Joust keywords. New characters, attachments, and a fantastic new location are certain to promote players’ appreciation of the most notable and unique characters from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire.

 

 

 

Call of Cthulhu Words of Power

Knowledge is the key. The different factions of Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game scour rare, arcane tomes for the means to save the world or bring about its doom. While agents seek to plunder the wealth of ancient journals, research assistants at Miskatonic University delve unwittingly into danger, and their study of powerful artifacts leads them across shadowy strangers, cultists, and monstrous black dogs. Words of Power is the second Asylum Pack in the Revelations cycle, and its 60 new cards (3 copies each of 20 different cards) promote exciting, new synergies with the Relics from the Ancient Relics cycle as well as with other rare, old cards lying dormant in players’ collections. Dark secrets in dusty tomes will determine the fate of the world. Who will find these Words of Power?

Dec 282011
 

MSFG has players assuming the roles of rival houses at Miskatonic. Each house has a healthy level of sanity (20) at the beginning of the game. As the game goes on, that precious sanity will slowly be torn away by the faculty of the school. In order to combat the bad teaching methods of the Great Old Ones, the students of the house need to band together! The project is led by award winning game designer Luke Peterschmidt. Luke has been working as a professional game designer for the past 16 years, on projects ranging from the Guardians CCG, to the Legend of the Five Rings CCG, to Bakugan (yes, that Bakugan). This project marks his return to his geek roots.

 

 

Miskatonic is expected to release in April.

Mantic Games Reveals Corportation Sculpts for Christmas

If you haven’t signed up for Mantic Games newsletter here is a sample of what you are missing.

 

The malevolent human Corporation is expanding its sphere of influence, annexing more and more star systems to its territories, bringing every alien civilization it can under its control. Or, if this proves impossible, exterminating them.

Well trained and equipped with the best in military technology, Corporation Troopers are worth scores of the warriors of less advanced cultures. The Troopers’ armor is often invulnerable to the natives’ weapons, leaving them free to mercilessly mow down scores of the enemies with pulses from their laser weaponry. Indeed, a great many recruitment videos glory in human troops slaughtering spear-waving “savages” for the betterment of the cosmos. If they encounter heavier resistance, the Troopers can bring the awesome firepower of their tanks and powered exoskeletons to bear. In dire circumstances an expeditionary commander may petition Corporation Central to unleash their most specialized forces who will quickly dispatch even the most stubborn of foes.

 

From its ancient beginnings on the Solar System, the Corporation has spread like a malignant cancer across the galaxy, covering entire sectors in its tyrannical rule and suffocating any attempt to live free of its clutches. Their expansion continues, but the galaxy is a big place. The Corporation is not the monolithic entity many think it to be, and suffers tensions between the great Houses and Companies that comprise it. And all those pampered, rich men who debate and bicker in the sterile halls of Corporation Central share one, deep-seated fear: that sooner or later the Corporation will meet its match in the unexplored expanses of deep space…

 

Thank You Mantic for the sneak peak.

WizKids/Neca Align with Gale Force Nine to Create the Supremacy League

HeroClix Supremacy League System is a focal point for organized play at the retail store level. The league serves to give a loose format to open play in stores without placing undue restrictions or requirements on participants. It supports a casual format of organized play that can supplement a store’s tournament events, and helps to create excitement in-store for ongoing play throughout the week.

Record keeping is done entirely on the board, making it a breeze to run at the store level and minimizing the effort needed to implement it. It also serves as a focal point in the store, creating excitement for new players and long time players alike!

 

 

 

The board includes five of the Convention Prize Exclusive Figures from 2011 – one copy each of Ms Marvel LE, DC Wonder Woman LE, and three Horsemen of the Apocalypse LE figures (one of each!). The figure value alone makes the kit a bargain, and the power of the board to pull players into the store will pay off dividends for a long time to

come as players make purchases!

The HeroClix Supremacy League System is expected to begin shipping in the first week of January. Some minor assembly is required.

 

This sounds like a great way to push casual play.   A league that runs during regular events – so it doesn’t interfere with the games the players already planned on.  plus it has great prizes to boot.   We will try and get a better scoop on this from Alliance.
