In life you have to do a lot of things you don't f*cking want to do. Many times, that's what the f*ck life is... one vile f*cking task after another.

Possible 7 Wonders Date?
Well, we found this over on the official 7 Wonders Facebook page:



We have absolutely no information to make us think that 7-7-2017 will be related to the long-awaited digital version, but we also have no information to make us think that it isn't being released that day. In other words, it's just a curiosity, and might mean something related to the digital version or it might not.

How's that for journalism? Please tell the committee to forward my Peabody to usual address. Thanks!



HexWar Back With Academy Games, Releasing 1812: The Invasion of Canada
When HexWar Games (HexWar) released 1775: Rebellion last year, one question that was immediately asked involved other games in the series, namely 1812: The Invasion of Canada. They were mum on the subject for many months, but this morning came clean and let us know that we can expect a digital port of 1812 on our desktops and tablets in late June.

Here's the blurb:

HexWar wrote:
Key Features:

-3 Scenarios – 1812, 1812 (Short) and 1813.
-Play solo vs. 3 AI difficulties
-60 Cards (Movement & Event)
-Cross-platform 2 player online play or up to 5 player hot seat multiplayer.
-A Faithful conversion of the original board game.


The game will be released for PC, Mac, Linux initially, followed by a later release on both iPad and Android tablets. You can sign up right now to be a part of the PC/Mac beta test here as well.

Now the only big question is, when will someone bring Freedom: The Underground Railroad to my iPad?





Here's One App That Won't Die in the Upcoming 64-bit App-ocalypse: CardWarden
Many years ago we talked about Card Warden from Mike Azzara almost weekly here on the blog. It got to the point where Brad finally had to ask me if Mike and I were related and I had to admit that he's my dad. He's actually not, but don't tell Brad, I'm pretty sure he still believes it.

Card Warden is a fairly incredible tool for recreating card games of any ilk on your iPad. Have you heard of VASSAL? It's kind of like that, but for card games and on a tablet. I used to use it all the time to play Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, but the need for that ended back when Pathfinder Adventures landed on the App Store. Still, I've heard people use it for games like The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game and Friday and I'm sure people have converted Arkham Horror: The Card Game for use inside the program. If you want to play card games for which an app doesn't exist, make your own. It's actually kind of fun.

Anyway, the big news is that Card Warden was updated today with 64-bit support, meaning that it will not be one of those apps that disappears when Apple updates to their next OS. Hooray! I had forgot about it until today's update alert, and now I'm going to spend the next few days getting all my AH: TCG cards scanned.
