There have been a good number of Conan RPGs in the past but I've never run across a roleplaying product devoted to the Cimmerian barbarian quite like Robert E. Howard's Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of.
I have to give major kudos to Mike Mason and Matthew Sanderson for all the time and energy which must have gone into producing The Grimoire.
A roleplaying game released last year, which had piqued my interest, was Bubblegumshoe from Evil Hat Productions.
Readers may recall I thoroughly enjoyed the third issue of The Arkham Gazette when I encountered it last year.
Dead Reckoning is the latest game release from my good pal Hermann Luttmann and, like nearly every one of his designs, there's more than initially meets the eye with this game.

The setting of 7th Sea draws plenty of inspiration not only from 17th Century European history but also loads of fiction set during that period; ala The Scarlet Pimpernel, The Three Musketeers, Treasure Island, and more.

Recently, an adventure anthology released this past Fall piqued my interest. In all honesty though, I have to say I hemmed and hawed about picking it up.

Essentially Fantahzee is a touch of a fantasy take on the dice game Yahtzee. Obviously, not coming as much of a shock there considering the game's title.
Fans of Doctor Who have no doubt been keeping their eyes peeled for Cubicle 7's Dalek Dice to arrive and, now that the game is available, no doubt wondering if this is worth picking up or simply the sort of licensed property cash grab that has become all to common in geekdom.
Those who've read my reviews of the previous two editions of Dawn of the Zeds (DotZ) know I'm a huge fan of Hermann Luttmann's original game design and I've been eagerly anticipating getting the third edition of DotZ to the table.
