Intel Dump - Rumors and glimpses of stuff coming up
« on: October 13, 2014, 09:30:30 AM »
Rather than look thru multiple threads for stuff, if there's just a small tidbit of something upcoming that you find, drop a quick line on it here.

If the discussion blows up, we'll create new threads for them, but this'll let people monitor / subscribe just 1 thread for 'upcoming' stuff

My visit to LnL revealed a bunch of stuff, but I've gotta sort through it to figure out what's embargoed and what isn't...  ^-^

solo expansion for Silent War


Isn't that a combat expansion of sorts, for Silent War?  It's already a solitaire game.  :D

Amazon has new D&D manuals to be released next month. Don't play anymore, just stumbled over it as I surfed my drool at amazon.

So is Silent War sort of taking on what was done in The Hunters whereas you manage individual crew(s)...because isn't Silent War more of a wolf pack/large naval campaign type of game versus individual vessels?  That's going to make for one long-ass game if that's the case!

Yes, but I hope this expansion will come with a new campaign setup for running only one boat.  I think it is.  Perhaps that's what Brant meant by "solo"?


I had completely forgotten about the expansion.  Seems like they've been working on it for awhile now.  Judging by the components, such as the play mat above, it should have more detail than The Hunters (something I thought it lacked in the combat).

Magic : The Gathering...Strategy Board Game?!







There's a FAQ here.

Looks very Heroscapey, which isn't surprising since one of the guys behind that system is involved. Looks promising, actually.

Next up, Kontact Now. KN for short. Been in development awhile. It gets stuck on back burner when our computer games are in development but it is progressing.
