In this Flip Though Matt takes a look at Lost Treasure.  Paizo has created a book that reinforces the Pathfinder story line by give more locations flavor and giving GM’s the idea to do the same.

 

 

I’m sure there will be countless adventures around some of these in my house.

Extra ExtraExtra Extra!

A game by Andrew Bond

For 2-5 players, 90-150 minutes, ages 12 and up

Game type: Worker placement, bidding

 

INTRODUCTION

Stop the presses! Stories are coming in from around the world, but you have a limited amount of money, a few reporters, and a race against all the other newspapers to get your publication out first!

Stories require writing and photos, but advertising, headlines, interviews and features will all help boost your attention and your reputation!

 

Players place their reporters to claim stories, fit their stories into their paper’s layout, and get money from advertising or extra stories. Other reporters can bump yours if they have more money, so keeping a few dollars around will be helpful. Your newspaper has a specialty, so stories that match your readership will earn you more points. If you’re the first to press, you’ll score more points, but the best stories and the most complete newspaper will be the winner!

In the first Figure Fore Matt starts to battle the ever powerful Loth from GF9 for Dungeons and Dragons. He tackles her human  form, a true feat for any man.

 

 

In pat two I assemble her Drider form.  She isn’t as challenging as she looks.   the hard part with this model is remembering where the legs go.

Maybe I’ll get around to a painting video on her, but don’t get your hopes up there are far better teachers out there for that than me.

In this no quite a play through and not quite a review Matt talks about the best part of Sheriff of Nottingham (lying, bribing, and stretching the truth) while having some fun.  Sheriff of Nottingham is a bluffing game for the whole family.

 

 

I look forward to posting a family play through in he future.  Sherrriff of Nottingham is one of the few games where you can let your personality shine.

meteorMeteor

$35.00

 

There is a storm of meteors heading directly toward our planet! Estimated time of impact is five minutes. We need to work together to destroy them all or the world will be blown to bits. Are you brave and resourceful enough to save our planet? If even one meteor gets through our defenses and hits the planet, life as we know it will be no more. Good luck citizens. It’s up to you.

 

You need to work together building and launching rockets as the time ticks down and the meteors get closer and closer to destroying the planet. Will you blow up all the meteors in time? Only one way to know for sure.

 

Meteor plays as a real-time card game. Each player has a hand of cards and a build area (build areas are shared in the five player game). A number of meteor cards are placed in the center of the table. Players must cooperatively build rockets to launch at the meteors before the time runs out.

 

Meteor is a real-time, cooperative, resource management card game.
