Happy Friday, gamers! We trust that you’ve all had awesome weeks and are looking forward to the weekend! I know I’ve been doing a lot more reading about games this week than I have been actually playing them, but I hope that turns around sooner than later. Check out what’s going on this week :

Announcements and Releases

  • More advice on deck-building in Android : Netrunner was posted on the Fantasy Flight Games page this week.
  • A guest post discussing the role of the Overlord in Descent was also posted to the FFG blog.
  • Dave Chalker’s new game, Heat, is going to Kickstarter tomorrow. However, you can download a print-and-play now!
  • Volume Four of Iron Kingdoms : Excursions releases today.
  • Sigma Play, a conference for gamers of all types, is being held this weekend in Bloomington, Indiana. If you’re in the area and play games, design them, or just want something educational and fun to attend, you should check this out! Raine will be there to provide some coverage, so be watching for that article next week!
  • The next Conflicted! deck is different than any deck you’ve seen before – check out the details here!
  • AEG continues to add to the Big In Japan line with Lost Legacy and Say Bye To The Villians!

Kickstarters You Should Know About

  • Like Samurai? A new Samurai-Noir themed RPG called A World of Dew is on Kickstarter now.
  • Dust : Operation Babylon is now on Kickstarter and is nearly 3x overfunded!
  • A family friendly RPG by Third Eye Games in which you take on the role of a bug – called Infestation – is coming soon to Kickstarter. Check out the announcement and we will link to the Kickstarter once it goes live!

We’ve already had 10+ folks sign up for our Meet & Greet at Gen Con this year! If you haven’t checked it out, do so! We’re exciting to meet people, possibly get some more writers, and hang out with like-minded people who love games. Until next week, happy gaming!
