Evolution is one of the most fun, innovative and strategic games I have ever played, and the Evolution: Flight expansion multiplied the number of options and blew the strategic value through the roof. Now the Evolution: CLIMATE expansion is on Kickstarter and I couldn’t be more excited! There’s a couple of different purchasing options too, just like there was for Flight. From the Evolution: CLIMATE Kickstarter Campaign page:

Fans of Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn rejoice! You might already be aware of the two mini expansions coming out in the next couple of months, but if not, prepare to be excited! These expansions, The Frostdale Giants and The Children of Blackcloud, will be available soon, and are already able to be pre-ordered on the Plaid Hat Games website. Here’s a little about the two new decks from the PHG website:

The Flight expansion for Evolution, the FDR Editor’s Choice Award winner, is available now! If it isn’t already in your FLGS it will be very soon! Take to the skies with new traits that allow players to make avian species. The expansion comes with exciting new traits, new species boards for flying creatures, and even a new watering-hole-type board called The Cliffs. The expansion adds a lot more strategy to Evolution, and somehow managed to make a fantastic game even better!

Too many great looking games, too little time… and money! Still, one must make an effort to purchase/play/obsess over them all!
Firefly: Shiny Dice

It’s really amazing (and probably a little bit creepy) how much I love Firefly, and I tend to purchase almost anything that has Mal’s face on it. The Browncoats’ obsessive desire to purchase Firefly merchandise and/or games, and this has led to some fairly crappy games based in the ‘Verse. Shiny Dice, however, looks like a promising, Zombie Dice-style, push your luck dice game.
Some very popular games that are much loved by board gamers have expansions coming out soon! Some add more of the ‘same’ that made the original great, and others add new mechanics to enhance game play! Click for more information about these expansions and links to their pages!
I am incredibly excited about this edition of Kickstarter Report! The last item in the article (it’s a surprise) is an expansion and an update to one of my very favorite games! Also in this edition is an awesome looking new post-apocalypse game! Only two items; short and sweet! The game titles at the beginning of the entries are links to the Kickstarter campaign pages for the listed games, and there are links at the end of each entry as well!
Below are showcase videos of all four Star Realms: Crisis expansion packs. Each of the four videos features the cards from the individual expansion packs; Heroes, Events, Fleets & Fortresses, and Bases & Battleships.
