Welcome to SCIU #61, for the weeks of May 18th – May 31st.
This week the following new titles were announced:
Mage Knight: Shades of Tezla – WizKids‘ third expansion for the hit Mage Knight features a new playable Mage Knight, Braevalar the druid, and two new Faction Leader Avatar dials. Also included are rules to increase the game to 5 players as well as new scenarios. The release is expected to be in July.
The Sixth Gun RPG – Technically this title is still not funded as there is still 24 days to go on it’s Kickstarter campaign, but it’s LONG reached it’s goal. Based on the comic book series, the Sixth Gun RPG revolves around six mystic guns which give the owner unique powers until their death. Using the Savage Worlds RPG system players will battle over ownership of these weapons.
Prohis – Prohibition is in full effect in Blue Orange Games’ Prohis. The players have to attempt to smuggler their contraband past the prohis. Players secretly choose their cargo and then will need to convince everyone else that what they carry is all legal. If challenged and caught, they may be able to bribe their way out. The player that smuggles the most valuable goods past the prohis wins.
Posthuman – After a very successful Kickstarter campaign, Mr B Games will be releasing Posthuman in Q4 this year. Natural forces are over taking the world and mutants are hunting the remaining humans. Players will attempt to reach the fortress harbouring what is left of humanity or side with the mutants and deny victory to the others. The game is for 2-4 players with a play time of 30 minutes per player.
