Drakerys was recently kickstarted and debuted  at Gen Con 2016. I love this game for the simplicity it brings.  It makes a great gateway game for the miniatures world.

I am a huge fan of the “initiative” system.  Check  out the How to demo I filmed at Gen Con 2016.

Matt takes a look at the Ultimate Intrigue from Paizo.  It features the Vigilante Class, verbal duels and intrigue systems to enhance your game. I think I will use verbal duels and the leadership system the most.

I think the pursuit rules have a place in any game there is a chase.  Check back soon for my full review.

TRAPDOOR TECHNOLOGIES RELEASES OFFICIALLY LICENSED DIGITAL TOOLSET FOR THE PATHFINDER ROLEPLAYING GAME

Playbook For Pathfinder Now Available in the iOS App Store

Free Download and One Month Free Trial for New Users

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (June 13, 2016): Trapdoor Technologies announces today the launch of Playbook For Pathfinder, their first officially licensed toolset for the award-winning roleplaying game. Playbook For Pathfinder is now available in the iOS App Store with a free download and one month free trial for new users.

Playbook For Pathfinder allows players to roll-up and manage characters, while Game Masters can purchase and prep adventures and campaigns for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The app features quick rules look-up, information sharing, stat tracking for monsters and PCs, and more.

The app will include the game’s complete rules set, artwork, connection with Pathfinder Society Organized Play events, and an extensive library of Pathfinder adventures. New content releases will be made each Tuesday, with additional adventures and rulebooks being added throughout the year.

At PaizoCon last week, Paizo announced the Starfinder Roleplaying Game—a new science fantasy RPG based on the Pathfinder universe and rules. Trapdoor will be working closely with Paizo to create a sister app for the new RPG system launching in 2017.

“We are really looking forward to the continued integration of the Pathfinder world in Playbook,” said Lisa Stevens, CEO of Paizo. “We believe it has the potential to streamline prep time and become an invaluable tool for both players and Game Masters.”

Munchkin Christmas Lite

Munchkin Christmas Lite

$9.95

Kick down the door! Defeat the monster! Take the treasure! Munchkin has been a gaming phenomenon for fifteen years, and now we’re giving you a great introduction to the game. Munchkin Christmas Lite is a standalone game, and can also be used as an expansion for existing Munchkin games!

Munchkin Kittens

Munchkin Kittens

$9.95

The ancient Egyptians worshipped cats.

Which clearly explains what happened to them. Cats may be cute, but they’ve got teeth, claws and siege weaponry? Munchkin Kittens has 30 new cards that some of you may be allergic to. Don’t be fooled . . . they’re adorable, but deadly!

This is an expansion for Munchkin. It is not a stand-alone game. This is NOT a collectible or randomized set. Every Kittens pack is the same as every other.

Duncan Molloy is the lead game designer for Osprey Publishing.  I caught him at Origins to talk about some of their newest games.  They Come Unseen has a really cool history.

I’m really looking forward to They Come unseen.  I’m a big fan of hidden movement games, it creates some suspense.
