Tannhauser: State of the Game

Well Fantasy Flight Games has a state of the game for the wicked boardgame Tannhauser. For anyone who has played this game you know how cool it is and for those who don’t please check this out. RPGHubber Neil had us try this out one evening with Curt and myself and we had a blast! It’s quick, easy and full of flavour. Ok, ok! Enough selling you on it.

It looks like it has a bright future with rules 2.0 on the way as well as a miniature and scenario by Christmas. And, of course, there are tons of other Tannhauser goodies coming, they just aren’t telling us yet. Those teases!

Arkham Horror Miniatures!!! OMG!!!

Ok I am a huge fan of Arkham Horror so I quickly soiled myself when I saw this update. Fantasy Flight Games have Arkham Horror Miniatures on the way. They will apparently come 2 per box and retail for roughly $12.95.

My only gripe is that it better live up to their phrasing of masterfully painted. These better be miniature Mona Lisa’s for that price because they are PLASTIC! Looking at them via the handy screenies they gave us, they do look well painted. Considerably more than the Dungeons and Dragon’s miniatures that look like they were painted by children in preschool.

But, none the less, this is definitely a DO WANT type of product that will make my super expensive cardboard ones that come with the game obsolete.
