No longer feeling enraged at the loss of $20.00 to see the “Hunger Games,” I am back in GTS mode. Here are a few more of the attendees.
“Toc-Toc Woodman” is a “Chenga” board game mash-up that was a fun little game. Players take turns whacking at the plastic tree with an axe and score points for chipping away at it. Clever and fun. There are also a couple of expansions for additional wood-whacking fun!
Yes, it is official. I spoke with the Eric at Wyrd and the Mailfaux RPG is under development. Trask is pleased. I always thought the deep story behind Mailfaux would make a great RPG. At least we have plenty of miniatures for it. There is also a new set of “terra clip” cardboard terrain coming out that is a dungeon. Good stuff all around.
A Russian company I have never encountered before showed up with a line of well put together historical war games. These are not hardcore grognard titles, more in the vein of “Axis and Allies” with a bit more complexity. Miniatures were very well-done and the main title “Samurai Battles” comes with rules for two separate games.
POWER is a modern warfare card game that uses a 4×8 grid to deploy and maneuver a variety of modern war fighting equipment. It had things like build queues and building time to get units on the board. It felt more than a little like “Starcraft 2″ or other real-time strategy games. Great card design and I liked the playing surface. I look forward to trying this again in future. P.O.W.E.R. is non-collectible.
More tomorrow night!
