Archona Games has published what looks like a great game with Magna Roma. In the game you have been summoned by the Emperor of Rome to build it’s great expansion. During the game you will produce resources, place tiles, and build your city to be better than your opponents.

The game features a combination of tiles, miniatures, coins, a other components that make you feel like you have dove into ancient Rome. From what’s shown on the Kickstarter page this game looks like it really takes it’s theme into what should be a very immersive experience with great mechanics that are unique enough for it to make a spot in your game collection.

Printed Game Components

spielmaterial.de has launched another project to add more game components to their available products. There are 50 new designs that will be produced if the project is successful. These are wooden game components will printed designs on them. So not only are the cool shapes, but the art work carries over so that each token seems more representative of what it is in game. These kind of accessories, while not necessary, really help aid the immersion factor.

Available as well are the original tokens that they produced previously. If you are looking to add a collection of unique game components to your board gaming experience this project may have you covered.

Like most gamers these accessories are all optional. In addition, I have sorted them a bit by how important of versatile they are to the collection and by general category. Not all of these items will be good fits for your game room or the types of games you play. Hopefully though, you will get some ideas of what to add to your room. We would love to hear about things you are using to accessorize your gaming room so give us a shout out if you think we missed something.

Kickstart Monday: Spooky Graveyards and Need Investigation

It’s Kickstart Monday and it’s time to talk about two new crowd funded projects today. Today’s feature projects will dive into our love of tabletop miniature gaming.

Tabletop World’s Graveyard Terrain

For our first crowd funded project let’s take a look at this Kickstarter from Tabletop World’s graveyard terrain for 28-32mm modular resin terrain. This terrain looks beautifully gothic and I can see it fitting so many different tabletops. Indeed, I can see this terrain working for Malifaux, Warhammer, Batman Miniature Game, and many other games.

What I really like about this is that this is truly a modular set of terrain that you can back this project and receive physical copies of. You can pick up as much of it as you want, duplicates of certain pieces if you would like, or just a couple of pieces to supplement your gaming board. Whatever direction you want to take it, this terrain is certain to make your table look more stunning!

The Nightgaunt’s Nightmare – 15 Call of Cthulhu Miniatures

Keeping to this week’s theme, The Nightgaunt’s Nightmare project from Cosmondo features 15 cool figures that you can use to explore your new graveyard terrain. This Kickstarter Project features only the .STL files for these figures. This means you’ll need access to a 3D printer to take advantage of these models.

In the images provided, these models look pretty cool and would be great additions to your Call of Cthulhu RPG game or to add as additional background characters in any horror game (miniature or otherwise). Indeed I could see some of these figures getting used in even Zombie Apocalypse games!

The Best Modern War Gaming Terrain for Your Game Table

BMG in action

One of the biggest challenges for many players when getting started with tabletop miniature war gaming is to find the right terrain. Even as a seasoned war gamer I felt like it was a struggle to find good terrain for my games of Batman Miniature Game. In this article I dive into some of the best places I have found to pick up terrain for my modern war gaming needs.

Modern war game terrain can take several forms. You have to decide if you are gaming in the more urban areas of the world, residential suburbs, or even rural locations. The place in the world becomes a consideration as well. Playing a game set, for example, in the Middle East is much different than trying to play out a game on the streets of Gotham or New York City!

Let’s take a look at a few of the more popular game settings and see who makes great terrain for that environment.
