Look ahead: What is incoming?

We are getting closer and closer to Christmas and still, quite a few of the Essen releases haven’t arrived with us. But for this week a few more have been confirmed and it also looks good for next week.

Here are the games/expansions con arrive arrived this week:

Early next week Charterstone and the Recharge pack will arrive and hopefully the main part of our Photosynthesis order, Bunny Kingdom and Mountains of Madness (the last three should get confirmed later this week).

Twilight Imperium: SU & SD review

Shut Up & Sit Down have posted their video review of Twilight Imperium 4th Edition.

Even if you are not interested in the game, just have a look at the video to see what this is all about, because this game is an absolute classic and the game that made FFG as we know it today possible.

Imperial Assault will get app support soon

FFG has published more details about Legends of the Alliance, the app for Star Wars – Imperial Assault:

Legends of the Alliance is a free companion app for Imperial Assault that promises to revolutionize the way that you play the game. Until now, your campaign games of Imperial Assault have been divided between two sides. Up to four players became heroes of the Alliance, fighting for freedom across the galaxy. The final player took on the role of the Empire—commanding Imperial forces, triggering powerful events, and serving as the heroes’ opponent over the course of the campaign.

With the Legends of the Alliance app, you immediately have the chance to challenge and reform these existing roles. The Legends of the Alliance app assumes the role of the Imperial player—handling every aspect of the game once controlled by that player, whether commanding the Imperial forces in battle, springing traps on the Rebel heroes, and inviting you to explore secret bases and strange planets in entirely new ways.

At its core, Legends of the Alliance introduces a fully-formed, cooperative way to play Imperial Assault, controlling all of the soldiers and responsibilities once handled by the Imperial player and freeing you and your friends to unite against the Galactic Empire.

The app will include a tutorial and a new five-mission campaign, playable with only the base set. But as with the Descent app, you can add your expansions to the in-game collection and expand the content available in the app.

According to the article, the app will get released soon. If it will be the same as with the Descent app, it should be available for iOS, Android and steam.

To speed up the shipping process for these incoming games I will send out the payment requests for pre-orders on Monday afternoon. This way all pre-orders can get shipped as soon as the stock has arrived.

FFG previews Legacy of Dragonholt

Legacy of Dragonholt was the new game from FFG that went a bit under the radar because it was announced at GenCon at the same time as Fallout, Twilight Imperium 4th Edition and the Star Wars Miniatures game.

But it was the one out of the four that caught my interest straight away because I really like the idea of storytelling games as a way to combine the best elements of roleplaying games and board games.

This week FFG has posted the first preview for the game and it has managed to raise my interest even more:

Terrinoth is a world full of magic and mystery. Its deep forests and dark caverns beckon to adventurers, while the plots and political intrigues of the court promise danger and hidden secrets. Now, you have the opportunity to explore the realm like never before in Legacy of Dragonholt, a cooperative narrative adventure for one to six players. This standalone game set in the Runebound universe is not about winning or losing, but about creating a story. The world is yours to command and explore as you seek love, revenge, or answers to the mysteries lurking in the seemingly quiet village. Before you strap on your pack and set out for new adventures, take a closer look at the identity of a narrative adventure game, and what you can expect to find in the world of Legacy of Dragonholt!

The game should be available before Christmas.

Two new previews published

FFG and Z-Man Games have posted previews for two of their highly anticipated new releases:

Welcome to the Wasteland, Survivor! Now, we know it’s a bit jarring to see your new home in such a state, but we’re here to help you come to terms with the post-nuclear journey that lays before you and figure out where to go next! For example, have you ever fought a Deathclaw?? Been irradiated before? The possibilities are truly endless, so rip up that bucket list you’ve been working on. It’s time to start fresh. For example… instead of meeting celebrities, you can now meet raiders! And with the majority of Boston in shambles, you absolutely must check out the delightful, synth-hating community of Diamond City. Isn’t the apocalypse fun?

Legend of the Five Rings has been released

Today Legend of the Five Rings, the newest LCG from FFG, has been released:

Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game is a Living Card Game set in the world of Rokugan, the original setting for the Legend of the Five Rings collectible card game. To play a Living Card Game, players create individual decks of cards from a base game with a fixed set of cards; they can then add supplemental card packs to this game world, with each pack also having a fixed set of cards, in order to vary their game experience.
