MODz for Wasteman
Next Up, MODz! It’s a range of interchangeable mutant figures for the game Wasteman, a game that was on Kickstarter last year. The models are cast in resin and come in two parts: a topper and a plugger so you can mix and match whatever you need at that time! The models come in sets of two for the oddlings & gribloids and cost 15 GBP per set or you can get one Chimera for 23. They all come with suggestive stat cards as well.

Calcio Storico [No BGG Link at Time of Release]
Calcio Storico is a miniature board game that emulate the historic game of Calcio Fiorentino, which was played in italy and is a predecessor of football (soccer). If you want to know more about the historical background of the game, check out the Wikipedia page for it. How to play the game (either the original or the board game version is unknown to me) but the base pledge for the board game is 75 EUR, which comes with a stadium and 54 miniatures.

Whelps to Wyrms
The other new Board Game is Whelps to Wyrms. It’s a game where you are raising your own dragon and exploring the world around you in search of treasure. Start off as a little hatchling, explore the world and grow yourself into a big terrifying dragon by eating livestock (and people). Of course the local humans will try to do anything to stop you from eating them! Whelps to Wyrms is 5 CAD for the Full Art PNP, 59 for the standard version or 79 CAD for the Deluxe One.

There is a card game Called Cantankerous Cats! I pride myself on being quite proficient in English, but even I had to look up what Cantankerous means. It means bad-tempered, Argumentative and uncooperative. Makes sense! Anyway it’s a card game about cats doing what cats do! The goal of the game is causing as much trouble without getting kicked out of the house by your owner. Cantankerous Cats is 35 USD.
Ends Tuesday 08-09
Party / Miscellaneous Games:
Well I’d Never [No BGG Link at Time of Release]
Well I’d Never is a game that tries how much it would take for your friends to sell out or sell their dignity. A scenario card comes up and you’ll have to play the value card, which says for how much (or little) you would do it! Well I’d Never is 25 USD.

Role Playing Games:
Beckett’s Jyhad Diary [No BGG Link at Time of Release]
First up in RPG’s: Beckett’s Jyhad Diary. The RPG about the dreaded game the ancient vampires play with mankind is looking for funding to get a luxurious, deluxe version of the book out there and it looks pretty good! It’s 20 USD for the PDf or the good-looking printed version is 85 USD.
Ends Saturday 07-23
Mutant Crawl Classics Role Playing Game
Mutant Crawl Classics brings DCC rules to a Post-apocalyptic setting. Adventure like it’s 1978 again with modern rules grounded in the origins of post-apocalyptic Role Playing.

Stellar Adventures [No BGG Link at Time of Release]
Stellar Adventures is using the classic Advanced Fighting Fantasy ruleset to power about any Science Fiction game you might need! I’m not fully aware of the apparently rich history of the series, but that’s probably my bad. Stellar Adventures is 10 GBP for the PDF version, 18 for a softcover version and 25 for the Hardcover.
