It has been a mostly uneventful week this here at the office, but some notable news has still come forth! With many companies gearing up for Essen, and others still winding down from Gen Con, everyone has their hands full. The next Magic: the Gathering set has its pre-release events this week, and if you’re interested in MtG, I’d recommend checking it out. Here is your Quick News for the week :
Announcements and General News
- The third data pack in Android: Netrunner’s Lunar Cycle, First Contact, is now available! Check out FFG for details on what this pack contains and if you need it for your game.

In case you missed our Facebook announcement, we have a new extension! We will continue to post Kickstarter news here, but we have our own Curated page on Kickstarter now where we can feature projects that we think are especially cool or are giving a boost to. That being said, if you’re a game designer and want to be featured, shoot us an email! We’ve been playing a lot of Cypher and King’s Forge, and reading through a lot of RPG material this week, and the weekend looks to hold more. Until next week, happy gaming!
