Tabletopia – prvi utisci

tabletopia-logoU novom broju Playzine magazina, možete pročitati moje utiske o novoj digitalnoj platformi za društvene igre, pod imenom Tabletopia. Ona je dostupna preko Steama, i trenutno se nalazi u Early Access fazi.

Kako se direktan konkurent Tabletop Simulatoru pokazao, pročitajte u magazinu, a ovde evo uvodnog dela iz istog:

 

U poslednje vreme primetili smo porast popularnosti društvenih igara kao kontrast rasta popularnosti ne-lokalnog multiplejer igranja kod video igara. Ovaj trend rasta se pripisuje sve većim pritiskom socijalnih medija, i dnevnom interakcijom sa istim, tako da se sve više ljudi vraća tradicionalnim vrednostima igranja licem u lice, koje društvene igre predstavljaju. 
Ponekad su okolnosti takve da imate fantastičnu društvenu igru, ali nemate dovoljno slobodnih prijatelja da sa njima podelite radost.

Kung Fu Fighting Card Game

KFF_CoverKung Fu Fighting by Slugfest Games is one of my favorite card games. I found it in the local board game shop by accident. I was drawn to it by the name and the cover art. It was fairly cheap so I snatched it.

This great game is out of print, so I did it justice and immortalized it in Tabletop Simulator. This is the mod of the 1st Edition of Kung Fu Fighting card game. All rights are owned by SlugFest Games.

If you are wandering what Kung Fu Fighting is, here is a description from the Board Game Geek page:

Blood Bowl Legendary Edition out on 28th October

Good news for the owners of the Blood Bowl and Blood Bowl Dark Elves Edition. In October, 30% discount will be available for those owners when they are purchasing digital edition of new Blood Bowl Legendary Edition.

Here is the press release from the Blood Bowl  official website:

Releasing Blood Bowl was not easy. At the beginning, only a few people believed that the video game transposition of Games Workshop’s board game would find its audience. Despite several warnings from different publishers around the world, we, at Focus and Cyanide, were absolutely convinced that a Blood Bowl video game could attract gamers. In the end, hundreds of thousands of players got themselves a copy of Blood Bowl, either in stores or via digital downloads. The game even topped international charts in France, Germany, England and Spain. Blood Bowl was also a huge digital hit.

Encouraged by these tremendous results and by some players’ regrets concerning the races we chose to include, it made sense for us to offer the version that we wanted it to be from the start including more resources, more stadiums, 20 playable races, more Star Players and wild cheerleaders. In short, a version that would pack all of Blood Bowl in a single game… A Legendary Edition !

In order to thank as best as we can a large part of the community for the enthusiasm and support we received, we decided to put in place a special offer that, as far as we know, has never been done for a video game. We will let each owner of a Blood Bowl game (Standard or Dark Elves Edition) benefit from an exceptional 30% discount on the downloadable version of Blood Bowl Legendary Edition. All you have to do is to get your Blood Bowl player key (Standard or Dark Elves Edition) and enter it in the special store section that we’ll put online during the month of October. The Legendary Edition will be available around October 28!

The average price of Blood Bowl Legendary Edition on download should be about 40 US Dollars.

Skirmish Wars: Advanced Tactics Boardgame

Skirmish Wars: Advance Tactics is a light – medium weight war-game based on the wildly popular turn-based strategy game Advance Wars released by Nintendo.

It will be a print and play game with a modular game board system for endless variety. The main objective will be to capture your enemy’s HQ or eliminate all enemy threats. Players will start many scenarios without units and just a handful of money. By building units and capturing cites, players can raise new capital in order to build bigger armies.

If the design is successful, the possibility of incorporating armies from newer Advance Wars games will be considered. This version will include 4 armies, CO’s and special powers from the first Advance Wars game released on the Gameboy Advance.
