About the Post

Author Information

One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Happy Friday gamers! Also, it’s Valentine’s Day! We hope you enjoy some board gaming goodness with your loved one on this fine day. It’s still snowing and frigid here at the office, but that’s not stopping us from getting to the table for some fun. We’ve got plenty of announcements for you today, so let’s get to it!

Awesome Announcements

  • The superheroes over at Reaper Miniatures posted an update showing a whole bunch of new models in stock and ready for you to paint!
  • Fantasy Flight announced The Firelands, a new expansion for Talisman that sets the world ablaze as players race against the clock.
  • A preview for the new Overlord powers in the Shadow of Nerekhall expansion for Descent: Second Edition was posted by Fantasy Flight Games.
  • The sixth preview for Dead of Winter surfaced from Plaid Hat, showing off more cards and more disappointment, as the game still has a couple of months on its clock to release.
  • Drake II continues to blast through stretch goals, and tons of new add-ons have been revealed for the campaign.
  • Wyrd Miniatures released the Malifaux Wave 2 cards in .pdf format, now that the beta is over.

Around the Office

  • Jacob and Christina enjoyed some Magic: the Gathering this week, along with Shadows of Esteren, Mice & Mystics, and D&D 4th Edition.
  • Kae and I busted out Firefly: The Board Game out in Terre Haute, and we’ve been testing out EDH decks for Magic: the Gathering.

This week has been quite a busy one, mainly because we’ve been making some changes around here at the office. We’ll talk more about it later, but long story short, we’re moving! The I:T offices will be relocating before the end of the year, only we’re not too certain on exactly when it will happen. We’ve been busy consolidating our inventory as well as packing up the place to get it ready. Once we get more details we’ll post them here, but until then, happy gaming!
