Max Temkin, creator of Secret Hitler and Cards Against Humanity, just posted about the latest in their string of political shenanigans. He and his team have sent a copy of Secret Hitler to every single senator in the United States, along with a signed letter noting the potential similarities between Hitler’s rise to power and the current Trump presidency.
I just hope these senators have some fun game nights this weekend.
Monolith revealed on Facebook that they’re working on their next project: A Batman board game! The artwork appears to come from the comics, so perhaps the storyline of the game will follow suit. At any rate, this seems to be the first serious attempt at a hardcore Batman game from a major publisher. It’ll be launching on Kickstarter later this year, or you can try it out at the International Games Festival in Cannes if you happen to be in the neighborhood.
The 2016 Golden Geek Awards are now open for voting! Here are the nominees for Board Game of the Year:
Arkham Horror: The Card Game
A Feast for Odin
Great Western Trail
The Manhattan Project: Energy Empire
Mansions of Madness: Second Edition
Mechs vs. Minions
Star Wars: Rebellion

In our earlier previews, we looked at the campaign mechanics and the campaign experience, and we ran SURVEILLANCE on the Corporations most likely to frag you while you’re out trying to solve this salacious MURDER mystery. So when your failure pretty much guarantees your DEATH, why do you still want to run?
The ANSWER, of course, depends on who you are. Every Runner in Android: Netrunner has his or her own motive. We clump them into three larger categories (aka: “Factions”): CRIMINAL, SHAPER, and ANARCH. But the truth of it all is that there’s as much variety between the game’s Criminals—or its Shapers—as you’ll find between the three factions.
Cryptozoic seems to have found success with their Rick and Morty themed games, Total Rickall and Mr. Meseeks Party Box. That’s why they’re coming around for Round 2 with the Anatomy Park and Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind games.
Anatomy Park is a tile placement game that sees players competing to build a theme park inside of a dead body while battling diseases and other obstacles. Close Rick-Counters is a deck building game that will use the same engine as Cryptozoic’s other deck building releases.
Both games are scheduled for release later this year.

Built on a Gozanti chassis, the C-ROC Cruiser bears a great deal of similarities to the Empire’s Gozanti-class Cruiser , but it plays a wildly different role in a Scum fleet than the Gozanti plays in an Imperial fleet. And the differences in playstyle hint at some of the ship’s unique strengths and, possibly, at the Scum faction’s future tactics in the game’s Epic battles.
Versatility is the name of the game. Whereas the Empire invested in the Gozanti’s ability to carry and deploy TIEs directly into battle, your Scum don’t care about deploying TIEs from their C-ROC. They don’t even have any TIEs to deploy. What they do have, though, is stuff—and lots of it. The C-ROC gains an extra cargo upgrade slot, which it can then use to haul any of the great cargo upgrades you might already have, such as a Backup Shield Generator ,Ionization Reactor , Comms Booster , or Engine Booster .
Mondo is best known for the work on movie posters and collectibles, but now they’re making their first foray into the world of tabletop gaming. “Infection At Outpost 31” will be their first game based on John Carpenter’s The Thing. They’re partnering with Project Raygun, a USAopoly division, to work on the gameplay mechanics while they handle the artwork and theme.
We’ve seen plenty of games attempting to mimic the feelings of paranoia and mistrust depicted in The Thing, but never with the license itself. Will this game have enough new ideas to bring to the table to make it worthwhile?
