From Stefan Feld, the creator of Bruges and The Castles of Burgundy, comes Amerigo.

Using a similar randomizing tower to the one in Wallenstein, Amerigo has players dropping differently colored cubes into the tower.  Some cubes will remain inside, others will fall to the bottom, but each cube designates a specific action option for the players of the game.  Strategically using the actions available, players must mine for resources, fight off pirates, discover new lands, and more.

Space is endless, just as the battles that rage among its starry confines.

The popular Kickstarter deck-builder, Eminent Domain grows a little more with the Escalation expansion.  Altering the dynamics of the base game (which is necessary to play), Escalation adds enough role cards to include a fifth player, while also including a new technology as well as a way to play old ones differently.

In Russia Berserk plays you!

Berserk:  War of the Realms, a popular Russian deck-battling game has crossed the Atlantic.  This base set includes six thirty card decks, immediately ready for play, as well as over sixty extra cards for customization later.  Along with the base game, there is also Berserk:  Knights and Villains, both an expansion and a stand-alone game, that has players choosing a side (Knight or Villain) at the start of player, then requiring them to choose their forces for the oncoming battle.

Whether she can’na handle any more, cap’n, or not, Star Trek Attack Wing continues to add more ships to the fleet.  This weekend, both the Federation and Klingon fleets gain vehicles in the form of the USS Defiant and the IKS Koraga, respectively.

Wings of Glory gets Napoleonic with Sails of Glory.

Applying the same mechanics from the popular Wings of Glory fighter plane battle game, Sails of Glory pits ship against ship.  Each player selects special movement cards in secret, then plays them simultaneously with their opponent.  This mechanic causes each opponent to strategically assume where the other ship will be based on possible movement options.  Wind and other elements will also now affect your vehicles, lending the game more reality and difficulty.

The Bestiary grows ever larger!

Another addition to the Pathfinder Pawns line of miniatures and tokens, the Bestiary 3 Box is out this weekend.

The box comes equipped with over two hundred differently illustrated miniature pawns as well as a selection of differently sized bases to match.

The FATE Freeport Companion brings the FATE rule system to a well know (shadily populated) area of the fantasy universe.  This hefty tome contains a special adventure written for the system and set in Freeport, new rules for magic users, stats for creatures and baddies within the local, as well as rules  for an armory’s worth of weapons, tools, and firearms.

If you’ve been itching to get your Space Marine or Necron or Tau or whatever on, now is the time!

Pulp is starting up a continual Warhammer 40K event called an Escalation League beginning next Sunday.  The concept is simple:  players begin the first Sunday with an army totaling 750 points then grow it by 250 points each consecutive Sunday, eventually reaching 2000 points on week six.  It’ll look a little something like this…

October 16 – 750 pts
October 23 – 1000 pts
October 30 – 1250 pts
November 6 – 1500 pts
November 13 – 1750 pts
November 20 – 2000 pts
Hope to see everyone there!
