News – The South Shall Rise Again – VPG PRESS RELEASE

From designer John Welch comes your chance to alter the course of a fractured United States, increasingly menaced by Confederate zombie soldiers (“Zebs”), and the dangerous Revenants and Glorious Dead that await you.
 
Based on the alternate history of author S.M. Cross’ The South Shall Rise, this is a game of tactical combat set during the American Civil War, where those within the Confederacy take a terrible risk to use the dead as reanimated soldiers. With four unique and challenging scenarios to choose from, crawl out of the trenches and rise to glory… or die (again) trying.
 
Good luck… you’re going to need it!
Click here for all the details and to order The South Shall Rise Again.

Here’s another project from Sprocket Games in the UK that looks like good social fun. Very affordable, delightful art. Definitely worth checking out.

News from Columbia Games – Victory in Europe now on Kickstarter!

Another awesome game project from Columbia Games is now live on Kickstarter. Victory in Europe looks brilliant and if you are a block war gamer, I would highly recommend that you back this project. Love the video with Tom Dalgleish as Churchill!

Here is the link to the project.

April 2014 on Kickstarter – If I had the cash (which I don’t), here’s what I would look into

April 2014 on Kickstarter – If I had the cash (which I don’t), here’s what I would look into…

Kickstarter is an interesting place and certainly has had an impact on the world of hobby board and card games. I am generally quite neutral about it as with the rare exception, there have only been very few games that have caught my interest, and even then, even fewer which have been affordable from the UK so I tend to be an observer.

Having said that, Backspindle Games will be launching the 2nd edition of my game Luchador! Mexican Wrestling Dice on Kickstarter soon so I will indeed be shamelessly promoting it and of course YOU WILL WANT TO BACK IT WON’T YOU? OF COURSE YOU WILL…

I digress…

Anyhoo, I thought that it might be a good idea to occasionally let you know if I’ve spotted anything that might be interesting on Kickstarter that I would look into if I had the cash.

This is a project from the guys who produced Police Precinct which has received good feedback. It looks like a fun, social game and makes a nice change from most of the game themes on KS.

Sentinel Tactics: The Flames of Freedom

I really like Sentinels of the Multiverse so this is a no brainer.

Yep that’s about it for now anyway… No Zombies, No Cthulhu, No Fantasy games. Yawn…
