Obsidian Entertainment and Paizo Join Forces
About an hour ago, Obsidian Entertainment announced on their Facebook page that they've entered a long term deal with Paizo Publishing to bring the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game (1st Edition) to the digital realm.
Their first project will be to bring Series: Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (Paizo Publishing) to tablets. No word on whether it will be Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Base Set or the new Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Skull & Shackles – Base Set set, or when it will be released.
That said, they have stated that an "early prototype" will be playable at GenCon, so it doesn't sound like release is imminent. Brad and I will try to get more information from the floor at GenCon later this week.
Playdek Announces Organized Play with GenCon Summoner Wars Tournament
Playdek is hosting a Summoner Wars (2012) tournament this year at GenCon, which isn't really huge news. What is potentially huge, however, is the method in which the tournament is proceeding.
Playdek has announced that, this fall, they will be releasing an organized play system for their games. What does that mean, exactly? We're not totally sure, but we should know a lot more when it's formally announced tomorrow.
We were lucky enough to snag a screenshot from the organized play interface, but until tomorrow that's all we have.
If you are going to be at GenCon, then you should consider signing up for the Summoner Wars tournament where you can see the organized play system up close. Details about the times of the tournaments and the possible rewards can be found here. Good Luck!
Among the best things in life is playing printed games in person with family and close friends. When those are not convenient we like iOS Board Games. News, reviews, previews, and opinions about board gaming on iPhones, iPads, iPods and even Android devices. (iPhone board games, iPad board games, iPod board games, Android board games)
