A game based on raccoon street racers is an inherently fun idea, for one obvious reason: raccoons are terrible drivers.

This is clearly prejudiced against Procyonidae-Americans.

In a game where ghost-wolves and majestic mustaches are considered equally worthy of a roll during character creation, the tongue-in-cheek vibe is obvious. Also, failure when too stressed causes wizards to explode, leading to more hilarity.

Calling Bawbsflyingstache!

Genetically modified supersoldiers, power armor the equivalent of wearing a tank, and an oath sworn to a galaxy-wide, Imperial empire. No, the game is not Warhammer: 40,000, but Nice Marines, a parody of the 40k universe and other Games Workshop games. When a diplomatic support team fails to reach the planet the marines have just liberated, it's up to the galaxy's most lethal and socially awkward soldiers to win the people's hearts. The system uses a variety of dice (d6-d20), to determine how confident the characters are in tasks like holding parades and being nice to civilians. Characters automatically succeed at all combat actions, which are borderline useless given that the mission is a diplomatic one. Worse, every d20 roll except 5-6 means either some kind of failure or collateral damage. Sometimes it's hard being nice.

Ok, I'm in.

Why doesn't this article have links?!

Edit: Most of them seem to be from Grant Howett, who posts some to his Patreon. Administrative Carnage.

'Exploding Wizards facial hair', eh? - or should that be 'Wizards exploding facial hair'? or maybe 'Wizards, exploding facial hair.'

Whatever, I'm keeping well away from it.

I think the board gaming world in the UK is so small, that the board gaming stores here don't often do sales.

SCC has things discounted - but often only 2-7%. I don't think I've ever seen a game on there that's had anything like the percentages seen on these pages.

Troll Lords has a bunch of stuff on sale right now

I grabbed Amazing Adventures for $10 (hardcover, complete game)

One of the last non-leather-bound copies of Victorious (another hardcover, complete game).  It's gotta be one of the last ones b/c all they have left on their site are the leather-bound ones now

And the free digital copy of their C&C Player's Handbook


(edit - forgot to add pic)
