I thought it was just Thursday, turns out it’s crazy news day. Buckle in and get ready for a huge influx of news.


White Wolf and Asmodee Digital Release Vampire the Masquerade and Mage the Ascension

Just a week ago, Dave let us know that Asmodee Digital had revealed unknown digital versions Vampire the Masquerade and Mage the Ascension. Now they are live on the app store!

According to White Wolf, they are interactive fiction games based on these classic role-playing properties. They are inspired by classic choose your own adventure stories. From these trailers, they appear to have pretty interesting art styles. We will be posting First Looks on these early next week.

You can find them here:
Vampire Prelude (iOS)
Vampire Prelude (Android)
Mage the Ascension: Refuge (iOS)
Mage the Ascension: Refuge (Android)

Here are quick trailers for each:







Onirim Screenshot Surfaces
Just a quick update. The Asmodee Digital Twitter posted what I believe is the first screenshot of Onirim. Check it out and let your imagination run wild:







Evolution Delayed, but for a Good Cause!
Scott from the North Star Games digital team dropped us a line to talk about the future of the digital version of Evolution. If you attended Gen Con or checked out our coverage you saw the game in a pretty complete state.

Well, the team felt they could do better and has gone back to the drawing board with a whole new style. You can read more details in their full blogpost. All in all, it sounds like it will result in a better product.

For now, check out these new screens:







Hearthstone Enters the Year of the Mammoth and More
There are press release and there are press releases, this is the later. Today Blizzard announced the Year of the Mammoth, basically the starts of new season that removes some older cards from play. But really, that is not all. Let me try to unpack it all:

1. The Year of the Mammoth is starting which means sets released in 2015 will enter the Wild format, not legal for standard and tournament play. That means say goodbye to the cards from Blackrock Mountain, The Grand Tournament, and League of Explorers.
2. That’s not all, we also learned about the expansions for 2017. Rather than alternating story expansions (where the cards are set and everyone gets them) and standard expansions (where you buy cards in blind buy packs), we are getting 3 full 130 card expansions. Story expansions are gone, though there will still be some single player content included with each release.
3. The biggest surprise of all is that several cards from Classic set are being moved to the Wild only. They are calling it the Hall of Fame. These include: Azure Drake, Sylvanas Windrunner, Ragnaros, and more.
4. Lastly, if you come back and win 10 games of Standard Hearthstone, you will be awarded a brand new Rogue Hero, Maiev Shadowsong

Here is a trailer detailing all the changes:




D20Studios Reveals Summoners Fate
Remember Hero Mages? We reviewed this turn-based strategy game back in 2012.

Designer and founder of the studio Ross has announced he is working on a brand new project. The title is Summoner’s Fate and it appears to be a shiny new spiritual successor to Hero Mages. It’s slated for release in fall 2017 and promises more crunchy strategy gameplay. They’ve got more details on their website and we’ve got the first screenshots below:







Duelyst iOS Beta Signups Open
Duelyst is a turn-based card strategy game that has received praise from all over the industry in its PC debut. It also none other than Eric Lang on its design team.

The game is coming to iOS soon and you can sign up now to apply for the beta. I’ve heard good things, so don’t miss this opportunity.



Fowl Play! Released
We just received word from BGG User ycyclop that they’ve released an iPad version of Fowl Play! designed by Richard Breese. It features AI play with up to 3 other players with varying difficulty levels. It looks like a great take on this classic design.

You can pick it up in the App Store now.

App News: Agricola All Things Big and Small Heads to Big Screen, Tank on Tank Invades PC/Mac and Pathfinder Ditching Quest Mode

In life you have to do a lot of things you don't f*cking want to do. Many times, that's what the f*ck life is... one vile f*cking task after another.

DIGIDICED Releases Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small for PC/Mac
Even before they announced that their next project is everyone's favorite crunchy euro, Terra Mystica, DIGIDICED had made a pretty decent name for themselves by porting over Uwe Rosenberg's two-player games to mobile. They had also ported both Le Havre: The Inland Port and Patchwork to PC/Mac on Steam. Yesterday, the third of those titles, Agricola: All Creatures Big & Small, also made its way to Steam.

The Steam version is essentially the exact same title that we've been playing for months on our tablets, only now you can play with a mouse. Oh, and you can play online against anyone on any device, which is pretty cool.

What's even cooler is that the Steam version is currently on sale for 30% off. That means you can pick it up for PC/Mac for only $7.

- Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small for iOS Universal, $5
- Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small for Android, $5
- Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small for PC/Mac via Steam, $7 (on sale)



Lock 'n Load's Tank on Tank Now Available for PC/Mac
Sometimes we like to report really old news and pretend that it's new. This usually occurs when we have our blinders on and miss something that we really should have been paying attention to. In December we missed the release of Lock n' Load's light tank battler Tank on Tank and we're going to act as though it was just released yesterday to save face.

Tank on Tank is a full-blown wargame with hexes, chits, line of sight, action points, etc. That said, it's easy enough that you can pick it up and start playing almost instantly. All the war game fun without the war game headache. Like its cardboard forebear, it comes in two flavors: Eastern Front and Western Front. You can also buy a bundle which packages both together in one (cheaper) package.

Put together, there is an impressive amount of scenarios covering a hefty portion of World War II.

Lock 'n Load wrote:
Module Westfront with 19 Scenarios and 4 Campaigns (‘Operation Jake’ is a shorter introductory Campaign with 2 Scenarios on a single Map A):
-Overrun
-Tiger 222
-Screen
-Crossing the Douve

The game has both solo play vs. AI and multiplayer and is currently available via direct download from LnL. They are also trying to get the game greenlit on Steam right now, with Western Front as the main download and Eastern Front available via DLC. If you want to see Tank on Tank available on Steam, head over here to vote for it. Even if you don't care if it moves to Steam, voting for it is still a nice thing to do.

Pathfinder Adventures Gets Valentine's Day Update, Plans to Ditch Quest Mode
We all love Pathfinder Adventures and we know you do, too. As such, it's always good news when Obsidian Entertainment sends an update our way. Yesterday brought two updates: a digital update to version 1.1.6.4.1 and a blog update with some future plans. The former is good news, the latter not so much.

Version 1.1.6.4.1 brings some Valentine's themed items into the store, but it also continues Obsidian's quest to pare the seemingly endless lists of bugs that plague Pathfinder:

Obsidian wrote:

What's New

New Alts
Two new alts are now available for purchase in the store!
-Noble Valeros: Diplomacy increased to +3 (Base: +2)
-Matchmaker Harsk: Diplomacy +1 added as a subskill
Four New Bundles!
-Team Valeros ($4.99 USD): Purchase the Noble Valeros Alt, the unique Ornate Longsword promo card, and 12 chests!
-Upgraded Team Valeros ($9.99 USD): Purchase Noble Valeros, the unique Charming Longsword and 24 chests!
-Team Harsk ($4.99 USD): Purchase Matchmaker Harsk, the unique Ornate Heavy Crossbow, and 12 chests!
-Upgraded Team Harsk ($9.99 USD): Purchase Matchmaker Harsk, the unique Heavy Crossbow of Affection, and 24 chests!!
Discounted Adventure Decks!
​-Burnt Offerings 90% OFF!
-The Skinsaw Murders 85% OFF!

Fixes

Cards
-Invoke: Is no longer incorrectly banished when played off turn by a character with the Divine skill.
-Spellward Shield: No longer incorrectly reduces all damage when revealed
Character
-Lem's upgraded Bardic Performance will no longer incorrectly remove bonuses to checks if cancelled before recharging a card.
-Sajan's Painted Alt will now properly add his bonus when closing the Apothecary
Location
-Death Zone: Now correctly applies its power when performing the closing check


So that's all well and good, but now we have to deal with their blog update.

While Quest Mode has been a part of Pathfinder since the beginning, the devs aren't able to address all its issues and keep producing new content and squash other bugs. As such, they're planning on killing Quest Mode in the upcoming 1.1.6.5 update.

Obsidian wrote:
Quite a few months ago we had to make a choice that would help create our content in more timely fashion. The time between Deck 3 and 4 was, believe it or not, over four months. Sure, we released the phone version in there but for our existing users it was an unacceptably long delay.

Some of our most vocal fans felt betrayed and some even refused to play until we had something new. It was in these dark times that we put a stop on trying to maintain content for the Story Campaign and Quest mode simultaneously.

It's now five months later and we still haven't thrown any new content at the feature and only fix issues where it would break the game or the story campaign.

Until we can do the feature justice we are going to remove it from the game.

Will it stay gone? Possibly.

For all the folks that play Quest Mode for the next couple of weeks here is a list of the rewards that you will receive if you play prior to patch 1.1.6.5:

-125 Gold per level of the highest Quest Mode character. That's 5000 Gold for a level 40.
-1000 Gold Bonus for a level 40.
-A new set of dice, " Pearlescent Dice of Service"
-The legendary card "Elemental Body"
-Chests, depending on what level your highest Quest Mode character is:
Level 1 - 10: 2 Chests
Level 11 - 20: 4 Chests
Level 21 - 30: 6 Chests
Level 31 - 39: 8 Chests
Level 40: 10 Chests

We are in the works on leveraging as much content from Quest Mode as possible and potentially creating side stories that allows the player to use their campaign characters.


There's your incentive for playing the heck out of Quest Mode! The update for 1.1.6.5 is planned for late February/early March, so you have a couple weeks to level up those Quest Mode characters.

Asmodee Puts Apps on Sale for Valentine's Day
While curmudgeons and the unloved like myself tend to loathe everything about Valentine's Day, Asmodee Digital is doing what they can to make our day suck a little less. They've announced that many of their apps are on sale through February 19, and all of these are worth picking up at their reduced prices.

Tinytouchtales Submits Card Thief to Apple
One of my most anticipated titles isn't a board game, but instead is a wholly original card game from the minds that brought us the fantastic Card Crawl. The follow-up from Tinytouchtales is called Card Thief and it should be on our iDevices very, very soon.



Card Thief is a much deeper, more complex, and more strategic card game than Card Crawl, so if you found Card Crawl to be not to your liking, you might want to give Card Thief a try.

You play as a thief and use stealth mechanisms to explore a castle made of cards in a 3x3 grid, avoiding torches and lit areas and trying to loot as much as possible. The goal of each run is to grab the chest and find the exit, using the loot in each chest to unlock better equipment and new castles to explore. New castles means new enemies and different strategies, and it all works really, really well.

No word on when Card Thief will arrive on the App Store, but it shouldn't be long now. There's also an Android version in the works, and it sounds like it will be released shortly after the iOS version.

Tin Man Games Releases Miss Fisher, Announces Release Date of Warlock of Firetop Mountain
It's been a big week for the fine folks over at Tin Man Games. Earlier this week they released their latest bit of interactive fiction, Miss Fisher and the Deathly Maze, and yesterday they dropped a bit of news about the long-awaited mobile port of their classic dungeon crawler, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain (2016).

Let's talk about Miss Fisher first, shall we? Yesterday I wrote about Miss Fisher at my other home and admitted I hadn't seen the show the game is based on, nor even have a Netflix account to do so. Last night I remedied both of those problems and have now 2 episodes of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries under my belt. Oh, Phryne Fisher, where have you been all my life?

Miss Fisher is an amateur sleuth in 1920's Melbourne who has brains, money, an incredible bob, and is, understandably, pretty awesome. She's surrounded by more dead bodies than Jessica Fletcher, and is smarter than every dude on the show except, perhaps, her butler whose name is actually Mr. Butler.

Did I mention that I'm digging it quite a bit?

So, Tin Man's release is the first episode of a lengthy murder mystery and its hand drawn style and smart dialog make it a perfect fit for fans of the show. You'll explore locations and interrogate suspects, while the game records all the relevant information in your detective's notebook. I haven't played a lot of the game thus far (I've really been watching a lot of Netflix in the past 24 hours...) but I think fans of the show will like it and fans of interactive fiction will find a lot here to love as well. It's available for iOS Universal and runs $3.

- Miss Fisher and the Deathly Maze Ep. 1 for iOS Universal, $3

Talisman: Digital Edition Expanding with Firelands
It's been a few weeks since we've heard from Nomad Games Ltd (II), which means they're way behind on new Talisman: Digital Edition expansions. Seriously, it seems like we get one every week or so, and this week is no exception. Unlike small character add-ons, however, this is a full-blown expansion. Well, a small-box expansion, but a real expansion nonetheless.

The new expansion is Firelands, and it brings the usual cadre of new adventurers (four of them, to be exact) and endings (three of those), but it also introduces terrain cards which allow you to change the spaces on the board. Pretty cool, eh? Here's the blurb:

Nomad Games wrote:
Those who forged the Crown have returned!

Great treasure and great peril arise from the burning depths. The Ifrit have risen from their underground kingdom to consume all the land in flaming death. They will not stop until every field is burned to ash and every surface dweller is clapped in chains of brass and taken down to the flaming caverns below.

The Firelands expansion offers Talisman: Digital Edition players 81 new Adventure Cards, 19 new Spell Cards, 19 Terrain Cards, 3 Alternative Ending Cards, 4 new characters, and firelands tokens representing the expanding conquest of the Ifrit across the land.

Will you be able to extinguish the flame?


The Firelands expansion is available right now for the PC/Mac and Android version of Talisman, and should be arriving on the iOS version as soon as it gets through the guarded gates in Cupertino. Not sure of the price, but it is available via IAP. To celebrate, Talisman is 70% off on all platforms right now as well. If you still don't own Talisman, now's the time to pick it up.

- Talisman: Digital Edition for iOS Universal, $1
- Talisman: Digital Edition for Android, $1.50
- Talisman: Digital Edition for Kindle, $3
- Talisman: Digital Edition for PC/Mac via Steam, $8

2016 was a pretty great year for digital board games and, even though it's still only January, 2017 is shaping up to be a banner year as well. Mysterium a couple weeks ago and, today, we get another digital entry from Asmodee. This time Potion Explosion!

Blurb time:

Asmodee Digital wrote:
The official adaptation of Potion Explosion, the award-winning puzzle board game.
Play this game solo or against players from all over the world with Solo, Online and Local Pass & Play modes!

In Potion Explosion, you will explode ingredients, trigger chain reactions and gather it all in your caldron. You will then use your hard-earned unicorn tears, fairy dandruff and other magical ingredients to craft powerful mixtures with wacky effects! May the best wizard win!

HOW TO PLAY
At the beginning of the game, each player is given potions to complete with specific effects and ingredients. You will have to select ingredients in the dispenser; once your selected ingredient is removed, the ingredients above will slide down. If two ingredients of the same nature collide, they explode and you get them too! You can then use your ingredients to cook up your potions. You only have a limited tank space to store remaining ingredients from one turn to another, so choose carefully! Once a potion is completed, you score points, get to use its powerful effect and pick another potion to craft. The wizard with the most points wins!

PREPARE FOR THE POTIONS EXAM IN SOLO
Play against up to 3 adjustable AIs to sharpen your potion crafting skills!

OR PROVE YOUR MASTERY IN MULTIPLAYER MODE!
Play against wizards from all over the world online and get to the top of the worldwide leaderboard!

To sum up, the game features include:
• The magical universe of the board game, fleshed out and digitally enhanced
• A tactical gameplay, allowing for different playstyles and strategies
• A Solo mode against up to 3 adjustable AIs
• An online Multiplayer Mode with a worldwide leaderboard


The online multiplayer is asynchronous, but creating a random game with strangers means you have to wait in the lobby until everyone joins the game before asynchronous turns kick in. If you're just playing with friends, you can start a game and leave the app immediately. Make sense? Not really, but that's how it works.

You can find it at the links above and, if you missed them up there, the links below:

- Potion Explosion for iOS Universal, $5
- Potion Explosion for Android, $5
