Countdown to #UnBoxingDay – Tuesday Newsday 13 October 2020

Yep, it’s #TuesdayNewsday and here’s a bunch of headlines in wargaming this week  >>>

This Week’s Headline:

#UnBoxingDay is this week!  Check us out on Thursday for an all-day smorgasbord of unboxings

 

Newly Released This Week:

 

Newly Launched This Week:

  • In case you missed Civil Power on pre-order from CSL, you might want to check it out.
  • Evil Hat Productions is pushing all their chips to the center of the socially-conscious role-playing table with the release of Thirsty Sword Lesbians on Kickstarter.
  • We can’t keep up with all the pre-orders Compass keeps announcing, but we’re pretty sure we hadn’t already linked Napoleon’s Eagles 2Brothers at War 1862, and Carrier Battle: Philippine Sea. Don’t worry, we talk plenty about Compass on the upcoming “catalog” episode of our podcast.

News From The Wargame Industry:

  • You want to cause your wallet to run & hide in fear?  Go to the Decision Games pledge program page, and sort by price, high-to-low.  Ouch.
  • Avalanche Press’s Land Cruisers alt-history game will be going out of print soon.  Until then, though, you can read about it in their daily content.
  • Matrix Games has a live Twitch stream on their upcoming releases planned for 10/15.
  • After bouncing around several different IP holders, there’s a new V:TM card game coming from Renegade Studios.  Looks like they’re eschewing the collectible model, but not the classic WoD theming.

 

The Professional Wargaming World:

 

Something From The Real World That You Can Use In A Game:

  • Finland are upgrading both their air & naval forces, to keep things interesting on the Baltic front.
  • A good article about drones & modern warfare from Crispin Burke over at his substack page. How do you build drones into a modern game?  Dedicated counters?  Card-based actions?
