One Night Werewolf VampireIf there’s something that goes together even better than peanut butter and chocolate, it’s vampires and werewolves.  Well, the smash hit One Night Werewolf has released a new, stand-alone version of the game entitled One Night Ultimate Werewolf:  Vampire.  Guess what it adds?  For three to ten players, Vampire assigns various roles to all the players, including the vampire, cupid, the assassin, and more, then asking players to deduce who the vampire is.  Adding everyone in there search are special powers that can be utilized to suss out the nefarious bloodsucker!Tanto Cuore Oktoberfest

Tonto Cuore is all about the Manga cheesecake.  Yes, the lady maids players are collecting in this deck building game are well endowed and scantily dressed, but, if you can look past that, the gameplay is superb.  Tonto Cuore Oktoberfest is the newest expansion/stand-alone version of the game, containing over two hundred cards themed with drinking, schnitzel, and barroom songs!  Combine the cards with the base game or play them alone, either way Oktoberfest is ready-to-play for two to four players!

Giggidy giggidy game-ga-game-ga-game-g-g-g-gaming!!

Just go with it.

Okay, since, apparently, I’m stuck on the letter “G” let’s look at Gamma World’s new expansion, Legion of Gold.  Monsters, monsters, and more monsters saturate this expansion.  As with the Famine in Fargo expansion, the box also holds four monster token sheets and a battle map.  As always, another new adventure is included.  As a sort of added bonus, any of the creepies present in this expansion can be played in regular Dungeons and Dragons games.  If you want to get an idea of how Gamma World plays, two of Pulp’s consistent counter proper-uppers, 8one6 and WDR, host a gaming podcast called Underdisscusion: The Undergopher Podcast.  Part 1 can be found here and part 2 can be found here.

The back of the book boldly proclaims:  These pages contain everything needed to prepare a Deathwatch Kill-team for any mission.  Deathwatch: Rites of Battle has mass amounts of customizable options including vehicle rules, weapons and armor, and new character options.  Along with all that creative goodness, this finely crafted hardcover includes rules for building your own chapter and alternate specialties rules.

From 40K to Fantasy.  The Witch’s Song is the newest adventure pack for the Fantasy Roleplay game series and it is creepy, thrilling, and suspenseful all rolled into one.  Creepthrilspensful?  Anyway, the story involves a quaint little burg falling under the curse of a local witch.  Or is it as simple as that?  The box contains a buttload of stuff:  the adventure booklet, cards, tokens, faction sheets, character standies, and so forth.  Perfect for a game session on a dark, cold, silent night.

D&D has a new deluxe DM screen releasing this week.  If you’ve never played D&D or have only played and never run a game, this screen keeps you dice rolls, notes, and other what-have-yous from the preying eyes of your players, while also being decorated with handy and helpful tips for running the game.

Since Mirrodin Besieged, the newest Magic the Gathering set, dropped this Friday, it wouldn’t be a game post without mentioning that we have a ton of booster boxes (which can be purchased at a discount and with a special promo card), Fat Packs, and Intro Packs.  If you’ve been scanning around town and can’t find any Besieged, you need to stop by Pulp and stock up.

While you’re doing that, you might also want to check out the new sleeves, boxes, and other Magic related accessories.  We have sleeves with symbols for both Mirran and Phyrexia.  We have Mirran and Phyrexia boxes.  We have Tezzeret-backed sleeves.  And we have new colors (red, white, blue, and green) in the Ultra-Pro Matte Sleeves.  Seriously, these are the nicest sleeves out there.
