We all ove and hate April 1st each year. Google and ThinkGeek never fail to pull out the stops but a lot of other companies and people put out many pages that just make us hate them because we want them to be true.

Scooby-Doo Unleashed: https://www.peginc.com/category/news/

Quote:

Pinnacle Announces Scooby-Doo Unleashed


We have a confession to make: Clint Black’s super-secret Scooby-Doo Unleashed game at MACE West was really the final test run for our newest setting! Now that licensing arrangements have been confirmed, we can proudly announce our new vision of the Mystery Machine Team serving as the last stand between mankind and the coming zombie apocalypse!

And this is a release for all you impatient folks out there. There’s no Kickstarter. There’s no lag time. We’re incorporating the final pieces of playtesting feedback now, and we anticipate releasing the Scooby-Doo Unleashed PDF for immediate download and the Scooby-Doo Unleashed print version for preorder on the thirty-first of the month! Join the crew and get your Scooby Snacks ready!

But wait—it gets even better! With our new licensing arrangement with the Cartoon Network, we have access to all the classic Hanna-Barbera properties. Coming releases (which probably won’t be as quick, sadly) will include
•Johnny Quest: Rippers Modern
•Necessary Evil 3: Dyno-Mutt’s Revenge
•50 Fathoms 2: Jabberjaw’s Feeding Frenzy
•Deadlands: Quick Draw McGraw with Stone from 41 Minutes in the Future

Introducing... Fukua!
http://skullgirls.com/forums/index.php?threads/fukua-introdu...

The best part is that she actually was put in game (probably only for one day, since she's in Big Band's slot, and he's supposed to be added either later today or tomorrow), and built out of leftover animations from early in Filia's development.

A PC game rather than a board game, but worth a mention:

I still hope this isn't a joke ,,,,
