  • To celebrate 20 years of gaming, Mayfair Games announces a new branding for The Settlers of Catan. All this means, really, is that all products will be simplified to Catan!


  • Tiny Epic Galaxies, the third tiny epic game from Gamelyn Games, has already had tremendous success on Kickstarter! They are more than funded and have plenty of time left!
  • House Llama? House Manatee? Take your place in The Kingswood with this tile placement and gold collecting game on Kickstarter now! The artwork is pretty humorous and worth a look.
  • Race the clock to build the best monstrosity those laboratory-destroying villagers have ever seen in The Demise of Dr. Frankenstein! This worker placement game is back on Kickstarter as a thank you to those that supported their first campaign, but is getting some light now and pushing forward to get the game out there.

What We’re Playing

We’ve lots of games hitting the table this week, some reviews in the works, and exciting stuff going on behind the scenes. These things will be revealed soon but have to remain under wraps for now 🙂 We hope that your week was great, and until next week, happy gaming!
