Warhammer 40K 8th Edition

by Adam Won July 7, 2017
Unless you have been living under a rock (or perhaps deep in some form of cave system), you’ll have noticed that there has been rather a lot of noise coming from the direction of Nottingham. For it is here that the goliath of the UK games industry, Games Workshop, is based. Well, a new version […]

The GW and FFG Split and What it Means to Us.

by Mike Bon January 29, 2017
Back in the carefree summer of 2016 news hit that put a bit of a wilt in my cucumber sandwich. It was the ending of the longstanding agreement between Fantasy Flight and Games Workshop that had seen the latter publishing board games based on GW’s various IP’s. At the time we gnashed our teeth and […]

A Brief History of Blood Bowl

by Adam Won November 2, 2016
Inspired by my recent hamfisted coverage of the new Blood Bowl previewed at Essen on the recent podcast episode Adam rattled out this little ode to one of Games Workshops most enduring and popular releases. So Games Workshop are publishing a new edition of Blood Bowl. This is indeed a good thing. Blood Bowl is […]

Warhammer Quest Silver Tower

by Adam Won October 10, 2016
I love the original Warhammer Quest. I mean really, really love it. I’ve even written about how much I love it on Prepare For Boarding (did you spot the shameless plug? I think it was pretty subtle). So when Games Workshop announced they were releasing a new version set in the Age of Sigmar universe, […]

WDR Bronze
Judge Dredd is one of my earliest hobby game purchases from way back in 1982, it was the golden age of Games Workshop in the UK they had a blockbusting run of stone cold classics during that decade. There was Dungeon Quest, Rogue Trooper, Talisman, Chainsaw Warrior, Cosmic Encounter, Fury of Dracula, Warrior Knights and […]

Games Workshop and Fantasy Flight Games fall out of love

by Mike Bon September 10, 2016
So after much gossip and general scuttlebutt following Gen Con, it’s finally official. Games Workshop and Fantasy Flight Games are parting company. After a successful 8 year run of FFG producing what many agree has been some of the best implementations of GW’s Warhammer/40K licenses the party is finally over. So what does this mean? […]

Saltlands

WDR Silver
The post-apocalypse is one of my most beloved genre’s thanks in large part to a petrol-head father, Mad Max and the fact we watched them pretty much on a constant loop in my formative years. It’s a disappointment then that hobby board games are still a wasteland when it comes to this genre; I endured […]

Talisman 4th Edition

by Mike Bon April 7, 2016
Let’s play Talisman. It’s a phrase when uttered in gaming circles will either materialise hazy half-remembrances of wasted Sunday afternoons and dreamy expressions, send a gamer screaming from the room or get you punched. On the button pushing scale of gaming, it’s up there with other marmite flavoured delights such as Munchkin, Cards Against Humanity […]

Fury of Dracula 3rd edition

by Mike Bon March 18, 2016
WDR Silver
Fury of Dracula shares much with its fanged protagonist/antagonist it has an eternally youthful demeanour and just when you think its dead, up it pops again with renewed fury and vigour. Originally rising back in the eighties from Games Workshops crypt it was a unique concept meshing theme and mechanics to excellent effect which probably […]
