Phantom Leader released for Windows

Phantom Leader has been available in a digital format for quite some time in both Vassal and iPad versions. Today, DVG released a Windows version of the game which is fully playable like the iPad version. You can order it for $19.99 through the DVG website.

Phantom Leader is a solo play game where you control a US Air Force or US Navy Tactical Fighter squadron in Vietnam between 1964 and 1972. With the digital versions, you get all the fun of the game, without all the setup time.

Walking Dead Card Game due Early April

The Walking Dead TV show is one of the finest shows on television at the moment… and this is coming from someone that doesn’t normally care for zombie movies/shows. On the gaming front, we have had a mixed bag when it comes to the Walking Dead.

Last year we had the fantastic episodic video game from Telltale Games (do yourself a favor and play this NOW!) and the recent not so good Walking Dead Survival Instincts. On the board game front there’s one board game based on the comic book and another based on the TV show. Now, enter a THIRD contender!

Cryptozoic is releasing a Walking Dead card game based on Wolfgang Kramer’s popular 6 Nimmt! game. The game will have two play modes, a Survival game that’s for 3-10 players, and a Hero game that’s for 2-6. The game comes with 114 cards and retails for a mere $15.00. This is one I will definitely pick up!

Look for it on the shelves soon after it’s April 12th release date!

Pinata due in April 2013

Balloon Cup is a game that I have enjoyed quite a bit but I’ve been stuck playing it solely on Yucata as the game is long out of print. Used copies are available every so often, but at a high cost.

Then, late last year, I was quite pleased to learn that Rio Grande Games planned to release a new printing of it titled Pinata. Surprisingly, this is how designer Stephen Glenn originally themed the game and Balloon Cup is technically the re-theme!

The game is set to be released in the US on April 10th and have a MSRP of $29.99.

Look for it soon!
