The Morning Roll – Day 11

| Your Opinion

Good morning gamers,

Games Workshop has announced a new edition of their popular Warhammer offshoot BloodBowl (this would be the fifth edition) due out in 2017. To get the hype building, they have just relaunched their website with information about the new version, including videos, rosters, and other treats.

Bezier Games uses SPIEL 2016 to announce a spiritual sequel to Piece o’ Cake called New York Slice, where players collect pizza slices that have points and powers they can use against other players, amassing the best collection of slices for the win. The game is due out Jan 2017.

Another game that got some buzz at SPIEL this year was Not Alone, a new deck building, one-against-many card game where players survive an alien world while being chased by ‘The Creature’, which is controlled by another player. The game is from a new designer and new publisher, which tents to drive gamers away, but after hearing some of the comments from this past weekend, gamers are sure to run towards it!

Cryptozoic Entertainment is doing a giveaway of some of their hottest card games, including a full set of Epic Spell Wars (including promo cards) and a copy of Poker Assault, a new card game coming out this fall that combines playing poker with head-to-head combat. To enter, follow this link. The contest closes on Halloween. And check out a neat little history lesson from the political website TruthOut where Brian Van Slyke covers the history of political board games, particularly ones that lean left. You can read about those games here.

I’m a little ashamed to admit that I am late to the board gaming bandwagon. I briefly dabbled with RPGs and gave up on video games many moons ago, so board gaming never seemed like an option – until I was introduced to King of Tokyo, my gateway game, and it was all uphill from there! Outside of that, I work in entertainment in the true north, strong and free, and spend my off time embracing fatherhood.
