Conan Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of (Modiphius Entertainment)

My Crom!: ‘Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of’ Reviewed

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.
The Grand Grimoire of Cthulhu Mythos Magic (Chaosium Publishing)

Thirty Years of Mythos Magicks: ‘The Grand Grimoire of Cthulhu Mythos Magic’ Reviewed

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.
Bubblegumshoe (Evil Hat Productions)

If It Weren’t for You Meddling Kids!: ‘Bubblegumshoe’ Reviewed

A roleplaying game released last year, which had piqued my interest, was Bubblegumshoe from Evil Hat Productions.
The Arkham Gazette #1 (Sentinel Hill Press)

A Mythos Stroll About Town: Revised ‘The Arkham Gazette’ Issue One Reviewed

Readers may recall I thoroughly enjoyed the third issue of The Arkham Gazette when I encountered it last year.
Dead Reckoning (Tiny Battle Publishing)

A Last Stand at Denney Springs?: ‘Dead Reckoning’ Reviewed

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.
Lovecraftesque (Black Armada)

NOT the Cthulhu Game You’ve Been Waiting For: ‘Lovecraftesque’ Reviewed

Lovecraftesque is pitched as the “GMless storytelling game of brooding cosmic horror you’ve been waiting for.” It's most definitely NOT.
7th Sea Second Edition (John Wick Presents)

Buckle Me Swash: ‘7th Sea Second Edition’ Reviewed

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.
Yeti (AEG)

A Not So Abominable Snowman: ‘Yeti’ Reviewed

The folks at AEG continue to release lighter, family friendly fare and now they've brought the Eurogame Yeti to North America.
Night of Man: The Battle for Earth's Survival (Flying Pig Games)

Darkest Before the Dawn: ‘Night of Man’ Reviewed

The year is 2037 and the Earth has been thoroughly devastated by an alien invasion begun three years earlier. The vast majority of the world's population has been extinguished and the new alien overlords, known simply as Killers, continue to ruthlessly hunt down the remaining remnants of humanity.
The Things We Leave Behind (Stygian Fox Publishing)

Modern Mythos Machinations: ‘The Things We Leave Behind’ Reviewed

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.
Fantahzee (AEG)

Dishing Dice at Devil’s Burden: ‘Fantahzee: Hordes and Heroes’ Reviewed

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.
