Weekly News


New Games:

Augustus, a 2013 Spiel nominee, will be available for play at Origins, though it won’t be on sale until Gen Con (in August, appropriately). (via BGG)

Dungeon Twister is back! In card form! And it’s set for a 2013 release! Forgive the excitement, but I believe that everything Christophe Boelinger does must be punctuated with the most enthusiasm possible. (via BGG)




Pandemic: On the Brink (2nd Edition) will be on sale June 26th. It seems to be pretty similar, if not identical, to the First Edition expansion.

Could be worse. Could be set in an aquarium.
