Dragon Dice: The Undead

If you want a bit longer tale of what Dragon Dice is, go back and read my previous review from last year. In short, Dragon Dice was the first collectible dice game, originally released in the mid-90’s by TSR before the company was bought out by Wizards of the Coast. WotC eventually mothballed the game and the newly formed SFR Inc. purchased the rights and the remaining stock that was destined for the dump. Flash forward to now.  Dragon Dice is still rolling (pun intended) and have just re-released kicker packs of their classic Undead race.

Most races in Dragon Dice are composed of two colours, representing various magical elements...

Ice Cool

The lunch break is almost there and all of the young penguins would finally get the fish they’ve been craving. However, some rascals think they are quick enough to snatch some of the fish before the lunch break starts, but they have forgotten one thing – the Hall Monitor! Each school day one of the penguins is designated to watch over the school, and this is his moment to shine – for each rascal penguin he catches he would get additional fish!

A fun run takes place – the rascals are running everywhere and trying to snatch some fish on their way, but the Hall Monitor is trying to catch each and one of them to have some order in the school. Who will be more successful?

Ice Cool is a flicking game in which each round one of the players takes the role of the Hall Monitor (also called “...

Pathfinder RPG: Bestiary 6

If I told you I was excited about the new Bestiary 6 for the Pathfinder RPG, I’d be lying. I’m a player, a fairly casual player even. I really only care about the monster in front of my party: give me a sword and let me stab something. Actually, I’m more likely to use a ranged attack and snipe at it from behind a bush or something, but that’s completely off topic right now. My point is that I generally attempt to avoid GMing whatever game I’m playing. It’s just not my passion. So when I saw that Bestiary 6 was being released, I was fairly disinterested as I read the preview description. Then I saw two little words: Four Horsemen. Wait, what? Like, Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Horsemen? Yes...

Epyllion

I am primarily based out of a smaller city with limited access to brick and mortar tabletop gaming and comic stores so, when I manage to get into one, I always try to see what gems I can find. It was on one such adventure that I came across a beautiful black hardcover with gold embossing, sadly shrinkwrapped in plastic. This was my first encounter with Epyllion: A Dragon Epic from Magpie Games.

Epyllion is an incredibly unique game in which you play through the life of a dragon. As the game progresses, you (and the other players) will explore the world and society of Dragonia as you grow from a young drake to an elder dragon and until you ascend on to a higher plane.

The game uses the increasingly popular Powered by the Apocalypse rule system, which is reasonably simple to learn and allow...
