Dice Rings assure that you will always be ready to roll

Posted by on in Home

Last night we got to try out Dice Rings from Crit Success in our local game store and they are a lot of fun. This is the perfect gift if you know someone who never wants to be caught without the means to randomize in the case sudden gaming breaks out. Like a street rules game of D&D or something. The rings come in all types from d20, d6, d10 as well as a 100 life counter that is perfect for Magic: The Gathering. The life counter ring is spring loaded so you won't have to worry about it spinning when you don't want it to.

Fantastic commercial shows all social media as the houses from Game of Thrones

Posted by on in Home

We've just played a nine hour session of FFG's Game of Thrones boardgame to celebrate the Season 4 premiere. Apparently Hootsuite had the same idea as they just released their new commercial which shows the major social media apps as the dueling houses from the books/HBO show. The only crime is that Myspace isn't shown as the smoldering ruins of Winterfell...

Hearthstone digital cardgame coming to iPad

Posted by on in Card Games

Blizzard Entertainment is the king of taking a good idea and making it better. Recently they tried their take on a collectible card game set in their Warcraft Universe with Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. The game is simple taking out a lot of the more complicated concepts that games like Magic: The Gathering have yet it still manages to be plenty deep and extremely engaging. With a simple clean interface on the PC and Mac I couldn't help but think that this is really meant for a tablet. Now we have just receive confirmation of just that, Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime just announced that an iPad version of Hearthstone is now available in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia with a worldwide release to come soon. 

If you don't have a tablet yet, you've got a pretty good reason now.

Amazing art from the 1997 Dune trading card game.

Posted by on in Card Games

Artist Mark Zug created art for some of the cards of the 90's Dune trading card game released by Last Unicorn Games. The creators of the game had asked him to stay within David Lynch's film universe for the cards but they soon lost the rights to it and Zug had to start creating a new look that slightly borrowed from the Lynch Dune. His pieces are so incredibly beautiful and alive. This is nerd high art for sure.
