Brain Freeze

brainfreeze_lr2

We humans are well known for our highly-evolved sense of humor – as evidenced by Brain Freeze, the ice tray that makes 4 frosty brains. So let’s celebrate our higher powers by raising a glass. Because a brain (not to mention a cocktail) is a terrible thing to waste. Brain Freeze is molded from super-strong, dishwasher-safe pure silicone and packaged in a colorful giftbox.

D20Pro Virtual Tabletop Demo Wednesday 7pm

This Wednesday at 7pm, The Haunted Game Cafe will be hosting the talented folks from d20Pro, who will be showing off their virtual tabletop software.

This is a multitouch digital gaming surface for playing games like Dungeons & Dragons or Pathfinder online. The huge, multitouch table combined with the GM directing things from a nearby laptop delivers the kind of experience promised by old Microsoft Surface demos from years back. The touch software allows players to quickly take an action, attack an enemy, or use a spell, and how the GM can reveal portions of a map, and tweak game statistics behind the scenes.

Prophecy

Does the blood of the Ancient Kings flow in your veins? Do you have the power to wrest the Artifacts from the Astral Planes and become our King? There’s only one way to find out…

Prophecy 01

 

 

In Prophecy, each player chooses a character such as the stoic ranger, the wise druid, the noble paladin or any other of the ten different adventurers and enters a world of brigands, thieves, demons, and undead.

Prophecy 02

 

But there are also friendly denizens whom you can encounter, skills you can learn, ways to improve yourself physically and mentally, items you can buy or find, and wondrous treasures you can discover. When you are strong enough, you must enter the Astral Planes and fight the guardians for the most powerful objects in the game – the Ancient Artifacts. But you are not the only player with such ambitions.

Prophecy 03

 

Only one can become King and fulfill the Prophecy!

Messages From Beyond: A Gen Con 2014 Round-Up

This year’s biggest event in gaming (real gaming) has been a storm of surprises, confirmations and major announcements. Check out below for a shortlist of the news that has our chains rattling, down here in the vault:

Star Wars Everywhere – There’s Too Many Of Them!

Goodness gracious me, have we been spoiled with new Star Wars games all of a sudden. A new faction for X-Wing, a fleet scale wargame and a semi co-operative/competitive miniatures game? Your fix for the struggle between the Empire and the Rebel Alliance looks to be well supplied for the foreseeable future:

Star Wars: X-Wing Scum and Villainy Faction

x-wing scum

Wave Six of the X-Wing Miniatures game introduces the fringers, bounty hunters and disreputable types that make up the Scum and Villainy faction. The third playable faction in X-Wing will feature all-new ships and tricks, alongside familiar units driven by greed rather than loyalty.

Star Wars: Armada

The Galactic War moves up to a larger scale in this capital ship and fleet-based miniatures game. Command massive starships and squadrons of fighters in a game where success relies as much on forethought and planning as maneuvering and tactics.

Star Wars: Imperial Assault

While fighters zip through space and huge capital ships wield immense firepower, down on the ground the conflict continues. Star Wars: Imperial Assault presents two games in one – both a campaign-driven narrative co-operative game and a competitive, tactical miniature skirmish game.

Warhammer 40,000: Conquest

40kconquest

Announced earlier this year, the newest Living Card Game made a big impression at the demo tables. Check out the card game in the Grim Darkness of the Far Future, it looks to be one to watch.

 XCOM The Board Game

 xcomboardgame

A traditional tabletop game enhanced with a digital app, XCOM The Board Game offers a co-operative experience where players fight to prevent an alien invasion, playing a game where an AI opponent and time are your enemies.

Android: Netrunner: Order and Chaos

            order and chaos

 The hugely successful Living Card Game receives its third deluxe expansion, adding to the arsenal of the Anarch runners and the Weyland Corporation. Expect destruction, chaos, big money and more destruction when these two Factions are pitted against one another – and the rest of the Android universe.

Keep an eye on our Online Store to preorder these upcoming releases soon!

Android Netrunner LCG: The Spaces Between Data Pack

Android Netrunner LCG: The Spaces Between Data Pack

As the Lunar Cycle re-establishes the game’s cyberstruggles amid the moon’s reduced gravity, recycled air, and corporate-sponsored colonies, it simultaneously re-examines one of the game’s fundamental conceits. What happens to events and operations after they’re played?

Events and operations represent a variety of ephemeral processes that occur both in the meat world and the virtual one. When they hit the discard pile, do their impacts just disappear? Or if they transmit signals into space, might their echoes ever linger, gain a sort of permanence in their repetition, and impact future events?

The sixty new cards (three copies each of twenty different cards) from The Spaces Between,  the second Data Pack in the Lunar Cycle for Android: Netrunner, re-examine the essential natures of the game’s events and operations, and every faction gains a new current that resides in the data streams somewhere between a state of transience and a state of permanence.

Make a run on our Online Store and rez a copy of The Spaces Between today.
