News round-up: Monday, 16th April

Last week we have posted two Youtube channels bringing you weekly board game news shows. But they can’t cover everything, so here is a quick round-up of some news not covered by the two shows:

  • Shut Up & Sit Down has posted their review of Rising Sun and in my opinion, they again have hit the nail on the head – LINK
  • Gamelyn Games have announced the retail release dates for their next two games: Tiny Epic Defenders 2E in August and Tiny Epic Zombies at Halloween – LINK
  • Area Games has announced Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles, a new miniatures games from the designers of Wings of War. No indication yet, when this will get released, but there will be a preview available at this year’s GenCon and I would assume at Essen as well – LINK
  • Phalanx is planning to bring back Ankh-Morpork a new, non-Discworld title called Nanty Narking – LINK
  • Gloomhaven: Forgotten Circles, the first expansion for the smash hit Gloomhaven, will be released at Essen this year (late October) – LINK

Here is the list of new arrivals:


Components Report: Tiny Epic Kingdoms

Tiny Epic Kingdoms is a fantasy 4x-game in a small box:

Each player starts with a unique faction (which has a unique technology tree) and a small territory. Throughout the game, players collect resources, explore other territories, battle each other, research magic, and work to build a great tower to protect their realm.

In the box you will find:

  • 35 Player Meeples (7 in each player color)
  • 5 Research Tokens (1 in each player color)
  • 5 Shield Tokens
  • 5 Tower Tokens (1 in each player color)
  • 15 Resource Tokens (5 of each Mana, Ore, & Food)
  • 2 12-Sided War Dice
  • 1 Active Player Token (big tower token)
  • 13 Faction Cards
  • 8 Territory Cards (double sided)
  • 1 Action Card
  • 1 Tower Card
  • 1 Rulebook


Each player chooses one of the 13 different factions, represented by a card which also holds the resource and the technology track. The resources each player has collected are marked by one resource token for each of the three resource types. The magic track goes from step 1 to step 5, each marking a special ability the player can research.

TEK_PlayerBoardsIn addition to the faction card each player has a territory card in front of him, which represent the world of Tiny Epic Kingdom. There are 8 double-sized cards in the game: one side is the easier side without any special region, the other side has a least one special region like a capital city or ruins.


Players can explore the Territory Cards and fight the other factions with their meeples. Each player can have up to seven meeples on the map.


The action a player can take get chosen on the Action Card. If an action has been taken it get marked by one of the shield token. On the Tower Card each faction can mark the level of there tower (= brings victory points and if a Tower gets finished the game stops) with the tower token.

TEK_ActionsTowerAnd finally we have the active player token and the two special D12, which get used to decide fights between the factions.


The game works really well and offers a lot of variety based on the different Territory cards and factions that can be in play. Thanks to the action mechanism it feels like a Eurogame, but with an fantasy explore and conquer theme. It plays up to 5 players and the playing time should be somewhere between 30-45 minutes.
