LONDON, ENGLAND (April 26, 2017): Modiphius Entertainment, publisher of the Star Trek Adventures, Achtung! Cthulhu, Mutant Chronicles, Conan, Infinity and John Carter of Mars roleplaying games, is thrilled to announce today that Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, the first tabletop miniatures game based on the Fallout universe, is currently in development and is set to release November 2017.
In Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, players will build their own crew from a wide range of factions, allies and iconic characters from the Fallout series, and play in apocalyptic games of 3 – 30 high quality 32mm scale resin miniatures through a huge variety of iconic scenery and settlement buildings, from the Red Rocket to Sanctuary Hills, Nuka- Cola vending machines and wrecked vehicles. Settlements will include buildings, defenses and resources that impact the crew’s army list and abilities in the wasteland.
Fallout: Wasteland Warfare will include an entire narrative campaign arc as well as unique random missions with narrative-style objectives, and Crew Caps recovered in missions can be used to improve the crew’s perks, weapons, gear, and upgrades for the next encounter. In either Player vs. Player, or Tournament mode, players will try to survive the tabletop wasteland.
Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game sees two Great Clans of Rokugan vying for superiority. A game begins with both players choosing their decks and randomly determining the first player.
Both sides then shuffle their dynasty and conflict decks, placing the dynasty deck to the left of their play area and the conflict deck to the right. Each player then secretly selects one of their five provinces and places it facedown above their dynasty deck, and sets their chosen stronghold card on top of it. This represents your Clan’s base of operations, and must be protected at all costs. Should your enemies successfully break the province where your stronghold resides, the game is lost.
In our last post about Evolution: The Oceans, we described the food chain at the core of the game. We mentioned it’ll feature lots of predators, as there are in real oceans. And because body size determines whether one species can attack another, you tend to watch the body size of your opponents’ species like a hawkfish.
This points to the practical issue which is the subject of this post. The way species were presented in Evolution made it difficult to see at a glance how big your opponents’ species are.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Blood Bound, a social game of deduction, bluffing, and vampire clans for six to twelve players!
For centuries, you and your kind have ruled the darkness, feeding wherever you chose and turning more and more humans to join your clans. But conflict became inevitable as the clans grew in number and broadened their territories, creating an atmosphere of festering mistrust and betrayal. The ensuing war destroyed countless immortals, and the clan leaders were forced into hiding. There are only remnants left, but the war is not over. You will not rest until you’ve destroyed your enemies forever.
In every game of Blood Bound, you and a few of your fellow players become a clan of vampires, working together to deduce the identity of your rival clan leader and capture him. Your adversaries—the other players—won’t be idle, however. They’re simultaneously working to identify and eliminate your clan’s leader. You must make your attacks carefully, but hunting in the dark is never as easy as it appears. In fact, you may not know your friends from your foes until it’s far too late.
Important note: This edition of Blood Bound features the same gameplay and mechanics as earlier versions of the game, but with completely new artwork and graphic design.
Few exemplify the patience, power, and compassion of Blue heroes like Obi-Wan Kenobi (Spirit of Rebellion, 37), Jedi Knight and mentor to Luke Skywalker. With the Guardian keyword, Obi-Wan can protect any hero you team him with, and when his health is depleted, you can play a Blue card from your hand or discard pile for free! Obi-Wan’s die is also a mix of support and attack symbols, two sides showing melee damage, two sides showing a focus, and one side showing a resource.
An elite Obi Wan is the perfect companion to Rey(Awakenings, 38), for 29 points, Obi-Wan’s Guardian ability gives the Force Prodigy the time she needs to find the perfect set of upgrades to become a threat to your opponent. By the time Obi-Wan is defeated, Rey is likely to have all the tools she needs to succeed.
