Thanks to its pervasiveness as both an incredibly long-running comic and one of the most popular shows on TV, The Walking Dead lends itself to a variety of merchandising opportunities. The least expected? A tabletop wargaming venture in the vein of Warhammer, Warmachine, or other games without “War” in the title.
Imperial Assault is a board game that was released in late 2014. I only got around to playing it over the weekend, and I already count those months between as wasted.
Yes, Warhammer Fantasy was home to many ridiculously badass heroes and villains. But Warhammer 40k, its sci-fi sister game set in a grim darkness where there is only war? Basically, the entire universe is made up almost solely of over-the-top buttkickers. Here’s just 15 of some of its most ludicrously badass…
Tabletop game maker Games Workshop has announced that the world of its long-running Warhammer Fantasy Battles game is coming to an end, to be replaced by a new setting. With its departure, we have to say goodbye to some over-the-top heroes and villains that made Warhammer so great—and here’s nine of the best.
Want to spruce up your tabletop games? Sure, there are official D&D miniatures you could buy. But if you've got access to a 3D printer, you could make your own menagerie of beasts and bad guys to fling at your D&D group (As a DM, not just chucking plastic toys around), all thanks to the hard work of Miguel Zavala.
Outside of work hours (or work assignments), I'm finding myself playing as many board games as I am video games these days. I'd long assumed the reasons for this was the obvious: that sitting around a table, beer in hand, was an infinitely more social experience than sitting on my couch shouting at strangers (if I was…
Part of the allure of tabletop gaming is its physicality - being surrounded by friends and playing with tangible, physical tools. But that doesn't mean you can't use technology to make your gaming sessions a little easier, like this awesome projected map set up by Redditor Silverlight.
A critical success role - whether it's to successfully scamper up the side of a spike pit or send the head of a kobold careening off its shoulders - is something all gamers treasure, no matter how your dice-rolling luck is. These new die go even further by treating you to a light show whenever you get a lucky hit!
Shadows of Esteren is a tabletop fantasy RPG with some of the most gorgeous art and design we've ever seen. The upcoming Occultism book lets characters gain esoteric knowledge, but life is Esteren is plenty dangerous even when you know the unknowable.
The final installment of the core D&D books has arrived, and it's really a hell of a book. I would even argue that this is the best Dungeon Master's Guide of any edition of D&D, ever. This is mainly because they've finally figured out what the DMG is: It's the hacker's guide to D&D.
Fantasy Flight Games' X-Wing miniatures game is very cool - so cool that it's still part of my gift guide suggestions 2 years after it came out. But now one fan has made a board fit for playing it on, and it looks awesome.
Dead Meat: Quarantine Zone America is a skirmish game that pits human factions against each other, fighting to meet their own goals while the board fills with mindless undead. Innovative rules and world-building make it stand out in the crowded zombie genre.
FFG's X-Wing and Wizkid's own Star Trek: Attack Wing have seen a pretty major revitalisation of dogfighting miniature games in recent years, but now the esteemed tabletop franchise D&D is getting a piece of the action, replacing spaceships with, err... Dragons. I mean, what did you expect?
Even the best laid Dungeon Master plans can go awry, leaving you to trawl through books and scribbled notes in a panic to find something for your players to do while they blankly stare at your DM Screen - so why not take a hint from video games and throw up a quick Loading Screen to distract them?
Magic's spinning itself off from card-based tabletop shenanigans to board game ones with a new strategy game from Wizards of the Coast - and while it's pretty weird to see a Magic game without cards, it looks rather interesting.
5 years ago, Games Workshop brought back its board game classic Space Hulk for a limited edition run, so exclusive and limited it would never be seen again once it sold out. Never ever. No siree. Nope. Never. Well... until now.
Fantasy Flight Games have revealed a new tabletop RPG out before the end of the year set in a variety of apocalyptic scenarios - but the twist is that it stars you.
Mutant Chronicles and its blend of space mutants, megacorp technocracies, and bizarre demonic forces has been in developer limbo for years, but as this gallery of stunning Paul Bonner art shows, it's ready to make a grand return.
Dungeons and Dragons – arguably the single most revolutionary turn to the Action/Fantasy RPG genre – turned 40 last week. Here's why it's still relevant today.
In the board game Chaosmos, the Chaos Clock counts down to the complete collapse of the universe. Hidden on some desolate planet protected by traps and trickery is an artifact that can save the cosmos — but you're not the only one after it.
