Gothic Horrors terrifies Kickstarter on March 27th


Mar 19, 2018

New expansion to the hit Maximum Apocalypse tabletop game launches on Kickstarter

Rock Manor Games is returning to Kickstarter to seek funding for their new deluxe expansion, Maximum Apocalypse: Gothic Horrors. The original Maximum Apocalypse raised over $150k. The Kickstarter campaign will feature the deluxe expansion at $29 and also offer a Kickstarter exclusive expansion, Jurassic Perils, for only $10.

The supernatural is real. Unspeakable horrors await those who venture out at night. Vampires drain the life of their victims while cultists summon strange creatures. We’re hoping that we can scrounge together enough supplies to survive without our minds snapping, but it is a heavy burden to bear.

Maximum Apocalypse: Gothic Horrors adds two new apocalyptic scenarios, Cthulhu and Vampires. Face off against life draining vampires, ghouls and werewolves in a classic monster set or try and stop a bunch of cultists from summoning Cthulu or other unspeakable Lovecraftian horrors. Each apocalypse brings with it new gameplay mechanics such as the Insanity deck of phobias or the new night/day event deck. This expansion also adds two new survivor characters, the Priest and Ronin. Each character comes with their own unique survivor deck of abilities and equipment cards. The Priest is a persistent believer in humanity who offers protection from unspeakable evils. The Ronin is a new close range combatant with dual purpose cards that change based on her combat stance.

Number of players: 1-6
Time required: 60 min
Recommended ages: 13+

Favor of the Old Gods Chapter Pack Available for GoT TCG


Feb 22, 2018

There are many sources of wisdom in A Song of Ice and Fire. Some, like the maesters, find wisdom crying out among the ancient books and scrolls of Oldtown. Others look to their gods for guidance, whether it’s the Drowned God of the Iron Isles, the old gods in the north, or the fiery faith of R’hllor. And some carry the weight of tradition, of history stretching back to Old Valyria, and use that tradition to claim wisdom.

No matter what the source, you have the chance to prove your own cleverness and wisdom with new cards for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game—the Favor of the Old Gods Chapter Pack is now available from Fantasy Flight Games.

The Flight of Crows cycle takes players on a journey through the events of A Feast for Crows, adding new cards with the bestow keyword and new incentives for players to build decks using the Banner agendas to bring two factions together.

No matter which part of Westeros or Essos you’ve sworn fealty to, you’ll find new cards to support your faction in Favor of the Old Gods!

The Masks of Nyarlathotep Expansion for Eldritch Horror Available Now


Feb 21, 2018

When the Ancient Ones have occasionally turned their attention to our tiny corner of the universe, it has often been due to a small subset of wrongheaded worshippers calling out to the cosmos for power.

Now, the stars have aligned to amplify this call in Masks of Nyarlathotep, the newest expansion for Eldritch Horror, now available from Fantasy Flight Games.

There is very little light in the cavern, and you’re certain that he hasn’t noticed you following him. You shiver as the silhouette of Nyarlathotep himself stands before the round, dark pool of liquid not more than twenty feet from where you are hiding. For a moment, he looks like a normal man as he sets the tips of his fingers to the surface of the pool. A sour-smelling phosphor seeps out from his touch and spreads across the liquid. The sickly light deepens shadows and casts a lurid sheen into the dank corners of the cave. Voices echo on all sides as the water ripples and flexes, and you can see Nyarlathotep’s form shift and flow effortlessly from one grotesque visage to the next. Its head snaps, stretches, and gibbers at each shadow in its turn. You lose track of how long the barrage of uncanny sound continues, when suddenly, silence reigns. Acutely aware of your labored breathing, you try to calm your fraying nerves and remain hidden. “It won’t matter, you know,” says Nyarlathotep crisply, and your mouth goes dry. It’s hard to tell in the darkness, but you’re sure he’s looking directly at you. “You can struggle and rage against their arrival, but they will come. Your world is forfeit… but I will savor your pathetic efforts.” With that, you can just see the figure Nyarlathotep bend bonelessly and slip into the inky pool as you sprint towards the cavern’s exit.
