Odin’s Ravens from Osprey Games is a race around the world.  It uses card to create an environment where outwitting your opponent may be the only way to win.  It takes seconds to learn and only minutes to play.

Would you believe the simplicity of this game is pretty complicated?  Well, the tactics that can be created certainly are, and you can out think yourself.

Watch as I take a look at the small expansion for Munchkin.  It isn’t limited or collectible every pack is the same.  This is totally Dragon themed.

It’s all about dragons it has to be fun!

In this Flip Through Matt takes a look at Pathfinders Black Markets.  It’s something every world should have.  This book features new alchemical devices, items, magic, and even secret languages.  Without a doubt you can pull a Black Market out of these pages if your’e in a pinch, or you can use it to create your own black market.

I was talking with one of my friends and they have challenged me to make a black market as a follow up to this post.  Look for it soon, does any one want to draw it when I’m done?

My friends and I play Escape From the Aliens in Outerspace at Adepticon.  As you will see it is a blind movement bluffing game.  While I have only played it once, I believe it can turn into a very intense game where you might just out think yourself.

Special thanks to Christian and Joe for demonstrating this and taking time out of their schedule for us.

CAT27451_Market-Panic_Cover-240x300Shadowrun: Market Panic ($44.99)
Chaos is horrible for business—unless your business is shadowrunning. The Big Ten megacorporations of the Sixth World are reeling, with scandals, disasters, and crippling attacks coming at them from all angles. NeoNET is scrambling to maintain AAA status, Ares is trying not to let the secret rot at the heart of the corp become public, while Aztechnology, fresh from taking on a dragon in Amazonia, is looking at a facedown with another great dragon. And that’s not all—every corp is a pile of schemes, turmoil, upheaval, and teetering chaos, because that’s how they operate.

Market Panic runs down the state of the Big Ten for Shadowrun, providing the background, story developments, and plot hooks players and gamemasters need to add excitement, intrigue, and Sixth World flavor to their adventures and campaigns. If you’re going to run for or against the big megacorporations—and that includes all shadowrunners—this is critical information to have so you know what you might get thrown into, who you’re going up against, and how you might obtain enough intel to survive

Matt is starting his tribute to Munckin with this Box Breaking of Munchkin Deluxe.  It started them all.

Drink some ale, have some pretzels and level up for the win. Well, it’s not that easy!  Your friends might just be devious enough to steal that level from you.

Survive or evolve, in Post Human you are one of the last humans alive and you are being hunted by mutants.   Watch as Matt opens it up.

I have wanted to play this for about two months now and I really can’t wait.

The SyndicateThe Syndicate Traders League (STL) Patrol Fleet has been designed to be light on its feet and rapidly deployed to deal with any incursion into space controlled by this faction. The highly capable Spur Class Battlecruiser takes up the Tier 1 slot on this fleet, bringing with it plenty of firepower and flexibility. Whilst not the most devastating spaceship in the Firestorm Galaxy, few rival its all-round capability in battle. Two Wraith Gunships add more violence to this Patrol Fleet, and 5 Shadow Class Frigates round things off. The Shadows can be fielded in a maximum of 3 to a Squadron, which allows players to field 1 full strength and 1 slightly under-strength Squadron OR take 2 of the Frigates and attach them to the Spur Class.
