Military Focus in Sid Meier's Civilization: A New Dawn

A new age dawns on a world that is yours for the taking. As you advance your empire through the ages, it is up to you to decide how to lead your people to glory. Will you achieve dominance by spreading your culture across the globe or improving industry to build the world’s greatest wonders? Will you become the world’s wealthiest nation, or its most technologically advanced? Or, will you become a true conqueror, using your military to bend other nations to your will and add more territory to your empire?

In Fantasy Flgiht Games' last preview, we examined how the Focus Bar mechanic shapes your strategy. Today, we will take a closer look at the military focus area and how you can use your armies to shape the world to your vision. Here's a closer look at combat and military stratagem in Sid Meier’s Civilization: A New Dawn!

Announcing a Revised Core Set for Android: Netrunner The Card Game

It is the future. The world has changed. Crime has not.

Welcome to the not-too-distant future of the Android universe. Your ticket? The Revised Core Set for Android: Netrunner The Card Game!

With more than 240 cards, the Android: Netrunner Revised Core Set transports you to an age of sprawling megacities. Here, artificially intelligent bioroids and genetically modified clones work alongside cyborgs, g-modded humans, and naturals. Hoppers pass overhead in their skylanes, and in New Angeles, a Space Elevator most commonly known as the "Beanstalk" dwarfs neighboring arcologies and skyscrapers as it reaches beyond the Earth's atmosphere and gravity to serve as a low-cost launch for near-space travel.

This is a future in which humanity has colonized the moon and Mars. Gone are the days of the mouse and the keyboard. Most users transfer data via gestural interfaces and virtual displays, but the elite take advantage of the advances in human-machine brain interfaces to "jack in," connecting their brains directly to their computers, and beyond them, the omnipresent network.

Everyone relies on the network, the all-seeing, all-hearing grid that surrounds Earth and reaches out into the solar system. More data flows through the network every second than was ever expressed in the first five-thousand years of written language. It is a surveillance network, a financial system, and a library. It is the backbone of modern civilization. And it is a battlefield—the scene of countless struggles between the megacorps that want to conceal and secure their agendas and the talented hackers, known as "runners," capable of breaking, bending, bamboozling, and otherwise bypassing those defenses and stealing those corporate secrets.

Soon, if you have never played Android: Netrunner, the Revised Core Set will offer you the chance to boot up and jack into the greatest game of high-stakes cybercrime the world has ever seen. If you have played, you will find that the Revised Core Set sets a new standard, pushing the game into the future—adjusting the base card pool, altering the battlefield, and aging your favorite characters.

The evil Lord Eradikus has all but conquered the galaxy, and is now on a victory lap across the sector in his flagship, Eradikus Prime. He may rule with an iron grip, but his most prized artifacts are about to slip through his cyborg claws. You and your fellow thieves have challenged each other to sneak aboard his ship, hack your way into its command module, and steal from him. Along the way, you'll recruit allies and snatch up extra loot. But, one false step and - Clank! - a careless noise draws the attention of Lord Eradikus! Hacking into his command module and stealing his artifacts increases his rage. You'd better hope your friends are louder than you are if you want to make it to an escape pod and get out alive!

Sneak your way aboard Eradikus Prime! Hack computer terminals to open your path! Recover the stolen treasures of the universe! Escape before the Eradibots hunt you down! In space, EVERYONE can hear you Clank!

A standalone adventure for Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure Game, In! Space! comes with a modular game board, 180+ cards, 80+ tokens, a Market Board, five Power Crystals, 30 cubes, a player marker, two data cubes, 24 Boss cubes, a Cloth Boss Bag, a Boss Marker, and a complete rulebook.

Famine, refugees, class struggles, nuclear arms, racial and religious conflict, pollution, disease...all catalysts to the encroaching Apocalypse. But, nothing could prepare humanity for what followed in its wake. The door to the netherworld had opened, and from it burst an overwhelming flow of death - The Immortals!

With their bodies controlled by a hearty hunger for flesh, they were simply drawn to the fragrance and sound of those who radiated with life, spreading slowly but steadily throughout the world. The humans preyed upon by the infected Immortals drew their last breaths, and then were reborn. Those reanimated as the living dead - zombies - desired the lifeforce of mortals, and so the death spread incalculably. When the world grew thick with the illness, all those who died became the infected. Whether they fell prey to the immortals or not, all humans were fated to become members of the living dead.

Faced with this crisis of unparallel proportions, it took humanity some time to come to grips with their situation. Those monsters that had formerly infested only fictional worlds such as movies, television, and comic books were now a threat that stood shoulder to shoulder with them. In the blink of an eye, the earth was covered with them, and the hand of death threatened to drag the living down into the bowels of the underworld. No matter how the mortals ran, it would catch them, exposing them to a reality more terrifying than a nightmare.

Zombie World Order is a two-player, head-to-head, competitive trading card game where players take on the role as one of the few survivors in a zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic world where the only thing that matters is survival.

Using 50-card decks, players command undead armies using magic to summon a wide variety of zombies with two signature characteristics - toughness and revival - which are key to gameplay, as toughness lets zombies take multiple hits, while revival brings 'em back for more! There are three kinds of zombies - Deadman (classic Japanese zombies like samurais, ninjas, sushi chefs), Mech-Z (mecha-inspired zombies such as soldiers, rocket-man, and lightning girl), and Immortal (demons and ghosts).

Prepare yourself! The Zombie World Order Begins April 2017!

Preview the Forces of the Empire in Return to Hoth

“The Rebels are alerted to our presence. Admiral Ozzel came out of lightspeed to close to the system.”
  
–Darth Vader, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

In the aftermath of the first Death Star’s destruction, the Empire has made ceaseless efforts to discover the location of the hidden Rebel base. At last, a remote probe droid has located the Rebellion’s presence on Hoth, and the full might of the Galactic Empire is now brought to bear against this secret base. As the Rebels scramble to escape from Echo Base, you can command a host of new Imperial and Mercenary units with Return to Hoth, an upcoming expansion for Imperial Assault!

Return to Hoth opens a new galaxy of adventure for Imperial Assault with sixteen new figures, thirty-seven double-sided terrain tiles, an entirely new campaign, and rules for expansive multiplayer skirmishes. Today, we take the side of the Galactic Empire to crush the Rebels beneath an iron fist.

Preview the Combat Tokens and Battles of Runebound

Terrinoth is a realm filled with wonder. Lost ruins hold hidden treasure. Strange creatures dwell in the deepest forests and beneath the waters of lakes and rivers. The Free Cities are repositories of learning, magic, and craftsmanship. Yet danger lurks in the wilds between the civilized cities. Dark forces stir once more, waylaying travelers and attacking remote settlements. Rumors even suggest that a deadly threat from the past has arisen in a bid to cover the land in darkness. 

The realm of Terrinoth is yours to experience in Runebound, a board game of high fantasy and adventure for two to four players. In FFG's first preview, we looked at the adventures that await you and the actions you’ll use to move across the realm. Next, we explored the heroes you can play and the countless ways you can customize your heroes with dozens of skills and assets.

The life of an adventurer is not merely travel and exploration, however. Sooner or later, you will draw your blade or open your spell book to do battle with your enemies. Today, we’ll look at the innovative mechanics used for combat in Runebound and examine an example of combat in action!
