Gen Con 2013: Top 5 New Games
During GenCon we got the chance to demo a few games, and learn about some great ones that will be released in the coming months. These are some of our favorites.
I happen to love card games, so this one interested me. Firefly: Out to the Black should be released later this Fall. You build a team, and to win the game your team must make it through ten missions without running out of credits or honor tokens.
We’re currently just getting into Mage Wars, which we think is a really fun game, so we’re looking forward to this expansion. This is a two-mage expansion set for the Mage Wars Game
focusing on two schools of magic not emphasized in the core set.
Set to be released in September. This is something we’re looking forward to. We’ve taken a recent interest in Pathfinder, and we already have a love for card games, so this seems perfect to us. It’s a cooperative game for 1 to 4 players, and it translates the most popular Pathfinder RPG classes, abilities, magic, and more into an entirely new breed of card game.
Boardgame fun in the ‘verse! Set to be released in September. Find out more in our post, from when Ken got in on a demo during Gen Con, and learned how to play from one of the designers. I’m thrilled that we have two Firefly games to look forward to this year (as you can probably tell, since they both made this list).
