  • Box and quick start rules sheet (not pictured)
  • The Expedition app – available right now at app.expeditiongame.com on all phones and tablets, and for Android (iOS-specific app coming soon)

Expedition: The Live Adventure Card Game

Recently I had the privilege of playing an advanced copy of Expedition and couldn’t be more impressed. The game’s creator, Todd Medema was kind enough to send a copy to B3 and I’m hooked. The game follows familiar fantasy game tropes that fans of Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder will find familiar.

The Highlights:

  • 1-8 players (Yes, you can play this game solo)
  • Combat is fast and easy
  • Combat is made even easier with the use of a free app
  • The app works well on smart phones and tablets
  • While the rules are simplified, the game can still be played tactically
  • The deck is available for free through the Creative Commons license
  • The game is customizable and allows you create unique cards
  • The website has an amazing Demo to give you an idea of game play (the demo is replayable)
  • The Expedition website is impressive and has been expertly crafted
  • The game’s Kickstarter campaign starts today

All in all, Expedition is a solid game. You can play it solo or with a group, as a distraction as you wait for your other players to arrive, or as an RPG system of its own. I will be excited to see what stretch goals are reached, I’d love to see a web-based game (multi-player or solo) created. I hope you’ll check out the demo and view their Kickstarter page (the campaign runs until November 9th). Expedition is, in a word…impressive.

Dungeon Attack Kickstarter

Posted in Gaming Culture, Product Review with tags , , , on August 19, 2013 by boccobsblog

The guys from Attack Dice, the makers of When Zombies Attack, are funding their second game through Kickstarter. The newest game, Dungeon Attack, follows the same AD premise of fast paced, easy to learn, and easy on the wallet, but with a fantasy flavor.

Funding a game on Kickstarter is a great way to get the games for a cheaper price, get them weeks before they hit the store, and a chance to get exclusive content.

Curious about Dungeon Attack? The rules can be downloaded for free from AD’s website.

Want To Game More But Don’t Have The Time?

Posted in Product Review with tags , on September 3, 2012 by boccobsblog

Check out Conclave. The creators claim you can play at any pace without software. What interests me most is the claim that it can be played from a smart phone.

According to their website:

Conclave is a D&D-inspired RPG that you play with your friends, at any pace, from any Web browser.  As long-time roleplayers, we were motivated to build it when we saw how we, and most of our friends, had stopped playing the tabletop RPGs we all love due to lack of time and opportunity.  So we decided to take the tabletop experience online, and build a game where your sessions can be as long or short as you like, and where you can find buddies to play with anytime – while still preserving story and gameplay.

It is worth a look. Check out their Kickstarter for more info.

Monte Cook’s Kickstarter: Numenera

Posted in Gaming News with tags , , on August 9, 2012 by boccobsblog

Monte Cook, one of the chief 3.5 architects has a new project in the works, a science fantasy game called, Numenera. What’s it all about?

From the Kickstarter page:

I’m really excited to announce that I’m working on a new game. It’s called Numenera, and it’s a far future, science fantasy, post-apocalyptic game with streamlined rules that prioritize the story, the action, and the wild ideas. If you’re a fan of outside-of-the-box gameplay such as that found in Planescape, Dark Space, or Chaositech, the far-future stories of Gene Wolfe, Michael Moorcock, or Jack Vance, or mind-blowing visuals like those found in the work of French artist Moebius, you’re going to love Numenera.

The setting sounds interesting:

Numenera is set a billion years in the future. Civilizations have risen and fallen on Earth. Even though the current inhabitants live at about a Medieval level of technology, the leftover remnants of these advanced societies lie all around them. Some of these are extremely helpful: advanced tools, valuable means of communication and learning, transportation, defenses, and weapons. Others are dangerous: genetically altered monstrosities, flesh-warping radiation, creatures transplanted from distant stars, and clouds of out-of-control nanobots, just to name a few. This setting, called the Ninth World, provides all manner of opportunities and challenges to those that call it home.

The game system that drives Numenera is meant to be fast-moving and simple, so that it facilitates the stories the group wants to create, the imaginative places and creatures the GM needs to describe, and the mind-blowing ideas the world encourages. Everything in the game is designed with these goals in mind.

If this game is anything like Monte’s 3.5 books, his Dungeon a Week site, or his Ptolus setting this game will be worth a look.

Pathfinder Online

Posted in Pathfinder, Video Games with tags , on May 29, 2012 by boccobsblog

It would seem that Paizo is looking to throw their hat into the MMO ring with Pathfinder Online.They are funding the whole project through Kickstarter.

Check out the video and Kickstarter page here.

I hope they are successful and that it doesnt go the way of City of Heroes, Lord of the Rings Online, DDO, Conan, Star Trek…well you get the idea. MMO’s are a fickle mofo.
