Re: What Board Games Will You Be Purchasing?

Two Commands & Colors expansions coincidentally named "The French Army" from two different publishers are now unexpectedly due here in September; one early and one late:

1. Tricorne: American Revolution; The French Army and More (Expansion #1)
Originally due Fourth Quarter and then October, its been reported that it will now be shipped this month.

2. The Great War; The French Army Expansion which has been delayed for months, has now arrived at its British publishers from the manufacturer. They are now waiting for the plastic French Heavy tanks to add to the Kickstarter package, and then will ship, hopefully this month.

Now that Netrunner is ending thanks to licensing issues:
If I want a copy of Netrunner just to have on my shelf, which of the two versions of the base set should I get?

Re: What Board Games Will You Be Purchasing?

I'm now looking at two new Kickstarters (the second will go up in a day or two:

WORLD OF MYTHOLOGY: KING OF THE HILL (Jumparound)
A 5 Player hero adventure game including more different mythologies than any I've ever seen before: Greek, Norse, Egyptian, Hindu, Slavic, and "Mixed" (Irish, Inuit, Yoruba, Chinese, Japanese, Mayan,and Cthulhu!)

MEZO (Kolossal) a 4 Player dudes on a map game based on Mayan mythology.

This is a good question. Did you ever get your answer, @Nukatha ?

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: What Board Games Will You Be Purchasing?

1. Tomorrow I'm picking up the Seth expansion (#2) for Kemet (Metagot) at my FLGS. It allows 2-5 "Alliance" Players to contest with a Seth (Purple) player. ("Seth" is the French version of Set). Since games coming out at the Essen show in Germany are usually not available until a week or two after that convention here in the US, I was surprised and pleased when the shop called me up, as the show is still a week and a half away!

Kemet is one of the very popular mythologically based (Egyptian) games by Metagot which also include Cyclades (Greek) and Inis (Irish). The first Inis expansion "Seasons of Inis", originally scheduled for Essen, is now planned for early 2019.

2. I'm now expecting The Great War The French Army (Expansion #2) in a week or two. World is that the French Heavy tank models that have held up delivery are now in Britain with PSC and have been shipped out to European KS Backers (orders without the tank add on went out earlier). The retail versions of the Centenary (2nd Edition) of the core game and the expansion (without the tanks I believe) are now available in the US.

Re: What Board Games Will You Be Purchasing?

I'm looking seriously at a game by a new small company called Galactic Warlords: Struggle for Dominion (Archonia Games). It's simple, short and has a lot of innovative mechanisms, colorful graphics, and minis.

It came out at Essen, and its Kickstarter backer copies will be shipped soon. No word yet on retail availability.

Re: What Board Games Will You Be Purchasing?

I just bought a bunch of C3V and SoV figures for the first time in quite a while; pretty excited about the stuff coming down the pipe, as well as some figures that were already released that I haven't picked up yet.

Tell me more about your experience with this. Kemet is in my Top 10 games, so I'd be interested in exploring this expansion. I don't yet have Ta-Seti, which is the expansion I've really had my eyes on. How is the different playing experience of 1v4? Does it completely change the game's tone?

It's a great feeling, isn't it? I just made my first C3G figure order in five years and it feels great. I still haven't printed out the cards yet.

Like Superheroes and Comics?

Re: What Board Games Will You Be Purchasing?

I finally got Fireball Island in and it is very good. They updated the game to be more strategic and the expansions add additional complexity for experienced gamers. It recalls my youth while also feeding the current gamer in me. Fun for my two nephews (7 and 16) and myself for Thanksgiving.

Re: What Board Games Will You Be Purchasing?

I just ordered Shards of Infinity from the makers of Ascension. It's a dueling deck builder with an alternate route to victory ("mastering the power of the Infinity Shard"). Looks cool; it's on sale on Amazon for $14 today only.
