I caught up with Jason Hardy at Origins 2016. Jason is the line editor for Shadowrun.  Jason brought me up to speed on his novel, a few others, all of the shadow titles, a push your luck SR dice game, and we talked about the tarot deck.  Oh did I mention Munge?  I think that’s the right spelling.

According to Jason Shadowrun has a lot happening and the world is about to be in a state of chaotic flux, which means your runners will have a lot of work.

Ghostbusters by Cryptozoic


Not too long ago Cryptozoic did ran insane kickstarter to fund this game.  You can get a good look at Ghostbusters on Kickstarter.





I love the look to this game.  But I have to admit I wouldn’t have found it if it wasn’t Ghostbusters.  This is the only Co-operative game that has really caught my eye this year.  The quality that is shown in the Kickstarter  looks to be high quality.  The miniatures look great and, for me, they can put the game over the top.

A World at WarA World at War: The Ultimate WWII Strategy Game (Reprint)

$195.00 SRP



A World at War completes the Advanced Third Reich/Empire of the Rising Sun game system, refining and clarifying the rules in every area of the game. Fifteen years of design and relentless play testing have resulted in a polished, proven game, which includes the following innovations:


  • ·         named ships, allowing players to sink (or lose!) the Bismarck, Yamato, New Jersey and other famous ships
  • ·         naval construction rules which allow major powers to build the navy they think will suit their strategic requirements
  • ·         mobilization rules which allow major powers to tailor their army and air force pools to meet their needs – provided they anticipate them accurately
  • ·         oil rules which force the Axis to worry about their inadequate oil reserves even when victory is within their grasp
  • ·         simplified diplomatic rules which allow minor countries to align themselves with various major powers

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

Dec 232011

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.
