Monster Lands Kickstarter Review

Monster Lands Kickstarter Review
Monster Lands is a bit of a tease.  Its cartoon artwork and cutesy graphic design are nothing but a honey trap, luring you in with the promise of a cute game for all the family but you will soon come to realise that Monster Lands is a meaty grown up game of resource placement and second guessing your opponent.  However, even that veneer is misleading because behind Monster Land’s euro game appearance is a game where the roll of a die can change everything.

In Monster Lands you must hire a group of mighty warriors to defeat fearsome monsters and conquer lands in the quest for glory and reputation.  I’m not going to try and explain every rule and mechanic for Monster Lands, because believe me when I say there is a lot going on in this board game.

The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 32: Clans of Caledonia, Monster Lands, Inbetween and our Essen
It’s time to get excited about Essen Spiel and so the boys try and keep it clean and family friendly.  Unfortunately, a request for Polyhedron Collider to review adult products leads to a discussion of said products and things evolve into childish giggling.
We do however get a chance to play ‘game of the year’ contender Clans of Caledonia, dice placement fantasy game Monster-Lands and talk about the Stranger Things inspired two-player card game Inbetween. We also then take our pick of the most interesting games to play and buy at Essen.

Star Eagles Latest News

Posted on October 13th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

This Kickstarter is a little on the late side but I was heartened to received the following update for Star Eagles.
 

Sorry for the slow rate of updates.  I know it has been frustrating for you all waiting for some news on the project.   Not wanting to make excuses, but my day job decided I was not working hard enough and has been sending me all over Asia for the past few months to deal with manufacturing problems. Things have final returned to normal and I can get back to focusing on finishing this project.  Normaly I am very responsive on my KS projects and I am sorry for the lack of more frequent updates. 
Production of the minis will begin this month, I have finalized the scaling of most of the ships and will be sending them off for production later this week. Based on where I am now, I expect the revised timeline is to have the KS shipping in later part of December.   
I am also working with Litko to have the move templates and counters made of Acrylic rather than cardboard. This will be a perk for the delay in the project.  Hopefully can show off some of these in a few weeks. 
In regards to the rules, I have received a lot of playtest comments and it seems the inititaive aspect of the game is causing a lot of confusion.   I have been rework the initiative mechanics to enhance the flow of the game and make it easier to understand.   I estimate I need about another two weeks to finish the rules and then I’ll be ready to release the most current version for all to see.  I will then wait for another round of feedback before passing it off to Andrea for formatting.   I think the revisions improve the game a lot and make it evn better than before. The feeling of a dogfight will be even more intense.


This does give me the opportunity to paint up a couple of items hanging around the paint table, I would much prefer to have a refined product than rushed out with holes in the rules and poor finishing to the production.

Carrying on the Alex Raymond – Flash Gordon theme, I thought I would paint up these War Rocket Mini’s as Vultan’s Fighters, Hawkmen on their own are not enough to protect Sky City from Ming’s War Rocket’s, although how they they got into the cockpit with their wings is one for me to think about…

I opted for a couple of shades of gold with white strips for effect, they blend with the mini’s I painted several years ago which have been in storage for several years and looking at some of the older pic’s could do wth a make a make over as my painting style then was rather flat.
Perhaps one day they will get a repaint but for now the new fighters will be gracing the table on Sunday.

The Masks of Nyarlathotep Expansion for Eldritch Horror is available for pre-order now and will be released in the first quarter of 2018.

What is Ab Chaos?
(…from Ab Chaos #7, May 31 1992)

Ab – Latin “from”
Chaos – (1) Any condition or place of total disorder (modern vernacular); (2) the disordered state of unformed matter which preceded creation (since Milton, Paradise Lost); (3) the dark, empty space which preceded creation (Greek Mythology); (4) the [formerly] Californian roleplaying game company.

Ab Chaos is an informal newsletter for Chaosium fans. Through our history we have tried to serve the players and gamemasters through craft and art as well as (and sometimes at the expense of) marketing and moneymaking. We appreciate your loyalty, and offer this communication to those who are curious about us, beyond the mere “product”.

It is planned to be informal and irregular. We are, after all, not the Orderium.
