Gaming with Neoscream: 27th December 2013

Welcome to “Gaming with Neoscream”. This is my weekly gaming post for miniature games, non-computer RPGs and some card games. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I have picked up several gaming related gifts, but you will have to wait until "Neoscream's Life" Christmas week post on Monday to know what they were.

Gaming News

First off is the Mantic news. The Mantic offices are closed until the 6th of January 2014. So there will be no news next week unless it is from Jake Thornton (this might be the same for everything else). So specking about Jake, he has posted test rules for the Forge Fathers for Deadzone. This is just rules for the figures than a full Faction Deck.

Next is the HeroClix news. This week there was previews of: Lightray and Mordru from DC Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes; and Sanga of the Thunder, Kuriboh and Gate Guardian from Yu-Gi-Oh Series One.
The winners of round one were: Atomic skull; Catman; Etrigan the Demon; Jeanette; Killer Moth; and Monsieur Mallah and Brian. They had moved on to round two which has ended. The top three will move on to round three (the final round) that should be up later today. The winners of round three will be revealed next Friday.

Now for the Zombicide news. There are going to be releasing three Gaming Night Kits for organised play. Each pack comes with six copes of a Survivor (both human and zombie figures and card), six dice, six experience trackers and a three mission campaign book. Each kit in based on each box set. Also there is a new mission called Wake-Up Call.

Next is the Kingdom Death news. On Christmas Day there was an update. Two masked survivor head (one male and one female) have been added to the Core Box set. Also three extra fantastic new female head have been added to the first print run of the Core Box set which includes all KickerStarters backers). The next update is due on the second week of January 2014 and it will be a big one. For those who do not know I received all the stuff I ordered on Black Friday (apart from the KickStarter stuff) last Saturday. I forgot to list it on the last "Neoscream's Life" post, but there is a post about the Black Friday Grab Bag.

Now for the Elven Adventurers Box Set KickStarter news. Greens of the Enting and the roasted dinner

Next is the Interface Zero news. The PDF version of the main rule is up now or backers since Christmas day.

Now for the Crooked Dice Games news. They are currently work part time during the holiday period. They should be back to normal from the 4th of January 2014 when their new ARC Moonbase Crew figures are out.

Next is the M and K Adventures Anime Miniatures KickStarter news. They had added the Holiday Unicorn to Cherry Blossom Level 1 and above as a Christmas Bonus. Sadly their have JUST cancalled the KickStarter, however hey do plan on restarting at a later date. This is due to them wanting to alter way they are doing the KickStarter so they ca make it an success.

Past Events

On Friday evening we played a game of Zombicide at Wargames Workshop MK. There was me, Bob, Rob T, Dave and two others playing, so Bob (who is the own of the Zombicide stuff we were using) pick mission 04 Heliport from Toxic City Mall. Bob and some of the others tried this one in the past but failed at the last moment.

On Monday evening there was a Christmas board games night at Wargames Workshop MK. The first game was a family board game called Rampage. It is a game where you play as monsters attacking a city. It was a fun game aimed for families. Then there were two games of Zombicide Prison Outbreak. We played mission 00 The Break-In both times. It was a six player game but we were playing it with four both time. The first game we found the objective strait away but it took ages to get to the exit as we kept running in circles due to an Abomination. I was the only one to escape. In the second game we got the right objective last, but we all made it out safe.

York House has a £3 on the day gaming fee and a £5 fee for a year’s membership. However the first day is free and they only take yearly membership fee at the start of the year. The Hall officially opens at 7PM, but normally people start arrived 15 to 20 minutes early.

Wargames Workshop MK has a £2 gaming fee or £4 with a pack of Magic the Gathering cards unless it is a paid tournament run by Guardians of Tyr. Weekday events normally start “playing” at 7PM.

For rules for Guardians of Tyr tournaments and leagues as well as information on pre paying your place in tournament (highly recommended) please go to their website which there is a link to their site under my links to the right hand side of this blog. There are plays for Bolt Action tournaments as well, however there are no dates at the moment.
