WizKids Announces Dark.net Board Game

Nov 12, 2017

Wizkids is excited to announce its upcoming board game offering, Dark.net

In the late 21st century, four mega companies – dubbed The Big Four – have taken control over every aspect of modern society. People have two choices: sell their soul to one of the Big Four or make their own way in the Fringe – a world where reputation means everything and information is more valuable than money.

In Dark.net, a game by Richard Yaner, players will intercept information from the Big Four and use it to increase their reputation and influence. Make contacts, extend your network, hire informants, install network boosters, and even infect rival systems, all to build yourself up from nothing and become the best in the Fringe.

Think you have the tech savvy to be larger than the Big Four? Or will you fall to the bottom of the barrel trying to survive in the Fringe?

Preorder Dark.net from your FLGS today for $44.99, and see what’s in store for your future. Available at your Friendly Local Game Store Febuary 2018.

Steamforged Games is thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership with Capcom to bring the iconic Resident Evil™ 2 video game to the board gamers of the world. Building on the success of previous titles including “Guild Ball” and “Dark Souls: The Board Game”, Steamforged Games will be launching this latest game, “Resident Evil 2: The Board Game” via Kickstarter in late Autumn 2017.

Steamforged is proud of its proven capability to bring video game IP to life as board games and plans to fully realise the core game experience of the much loved Resident Evil 2 world.

“It’s a privilege and an honour to be trusted to bring such an important video game to life as a board game,” said Mat Hart, Creative Director and Co-founder of Steamforged Games. “Resident Evil 2 helped to define its own genre of games and has created a lasting legacy in video game history. Steamforged has several Resident Evil super fans on the team and so we have a deep understanding of what makes RE such a compelling game experience; one that still has legions of fans around the world still playing the game nearly two decades after its release. We’re determined to surprise and delight players new and old with this board game realisation, even the most hardcore of fans!”

Mansions of Madness Figure and Tile Collections announced

August 14th, 2016

Expand your Mansions of Madness Second Edition game this fall with two Figure and Tile Collections and four brand new Arkham Horror premium monster figures.

All six of these products will deepen your experience in Arkham, whether by reintroducing First Edition monsters and investigators to your Second Edition game, gaining access to alternate scenario maps, or substituting in detailed, pre-painted miniatures. 

The Recurring Nightmares Figure and Tile Collection contains all the monster miniatures, investigator figures, and map tiles from the Mansions of Madness First Edition core game, and Suppressed Memories contains those from the Call of the Wild and Forbidden Alchemy expansions. Combined with the Mansions of Madness Second Edition Conversion Kit, each of these Figure and Tile Collections will give players access to a brand new scenario, which will focus on the monsters and characters from that collection. If you already have the First Edition components, no need to pick up the Collections. You can use your existing pieces to play the new scenarios when they release this fall. 

Alongside the Figure and Tile Collections, Fantasy Flight Games bring you the final four Arkham Horror Premium Painted Miniatures. Over the last several years, we have released an extensive collection of pre-painted minis to use with your Arkham Horror, Eldritch Horror, and Mansions of Madness games. The release of these four minis culminates our introduction of these visually stunning figures to your Lovecraftian game worlds.
