Games Workshop’s classic Judge Dredd board game is getting a remake. First released in 1982, Judge Dredd: The Game of Crime Fighting in Mega-City One was designed by Sir Ian Livingstone – co-founder of the Warhammer maker – and put players in the jackboots of Dredd’s fellow judges as they patrolled the streets of Mega-City One in search of perps to arrest. Nice to see something new from Rebellion Unplugged!

Hasbro has named Dan Rawson as its new Senior Vice President for the Dungeons & Dragons brand. Rawson was announced as the new head of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise, filling a role that was posted four months ago. Rawson comes from the tech sector, having worked for Microsoft Dynamics 365 as COO. Oh good. Another Microsoft exec to make D&D more of a subscription service.

To celebrate 30 years of Magic: The Gathering, we knew we had to go big. We had to create an experience for fans new and old that would be worthy of three decades of the original trading card game. We wanted a collectible, commemorative, jaw-dropping, mind-blowing thing that would cement itself in our collective memories as we look toward the next 30 years of Magic. The price tag is $999. Happy frickin’ anniversary.

Beloved miniatures wargame Heroscape is back with a HazLabs crowdfunding project. The $249.99 boxed set called Heroscape: Age of Annihilation, which includes loads of customizable scenery and five playable factions. It will only be produced if the campaign receives 8,000 pre-orders, but if it’s successful, Hasbro’s Avalon Hill imprint plans to bring the franchise back to life with additional releases. If the quality of the Heroquest release is anything to go by, save your money and wait for the tile packs.

LEGO is celebrating 50 years of Dungeons & Dragons. Fans can submit designs inspired by Dungeons & Dragons using LEGO bricks, elements and pieces. The designs will be voted on by both fans and judges from LEGO. The winners will get their designs officially released and receive a little piece of the profits. Keep under the 3,000 piece limit and you are good to go.

Beyond the Gates of Antares created by Tim and Rick Priestley and published by Warlord Games is being discontinued. The miniatures will continue to be produced by Skytrex. The game will get a free second edition from the original creators and a new website to support the game separate from Warlord. So players of the game are not being abandoned and thankfully the games remains in the hands of its creators.

Hasbro buys D&D Beyond from Fandom for almost $150 million. This will create more of an ecosystem for Wizards of the Coast to offer digital materials for the game and also collect valuable data from its players. Both the president of Hasbro and Wizards are former Microsoft executives, so this first major purchase of a digital platform is not surprising. D&D Beyond will retain its original management and continue as usual with the only change being the oversight of Hasbro. The only missing piece of the puzzle is a virtual tabletop. Will Roll20 be next?

A quick side note. We missed the news a few weeks back that Paizo will be converting one of their Pathfinder Adventure Paths, Abomination Vaults, for Dungeons and Dragons 5E. Is this just an attempt by Paizo to reach a wider audience and boost the sales of their adventures or does this mean the beginning of the end for Pathfinder? According to Roll20 session data Pathfinder has slipped considerably in recent years with D&D accounting more than 50% of online game sessions.

Fearsome Wilderness is an RPG using the Year Zero Engine about a prison ship that crashes on a densely wooded planet inhabited by unnatural fearsome critters of American lumberjack folklore. The horror is compounded by the fact that waking up from such an extended period of hibernation can do strange things to the mind. A free trial version of the game is available on DriveThruRPG.

Tainted Grail, the boardgame by Awaken Realms, is getting a sequel called Kings of Ruin. The sequel will be crowdfunded on Gamefound, their tabletop funding platform that launched earlier this year. The original game that was released in 2018 the biggest Kickstarter of that year, raising over $6.4 million and is now getting a second edition as part of this release. The new edition of the game promises more refined mechanics and gameplay with additional storylines. Hopefully this will help them establish Gamefound as a legitimate alternative to Kickstarter.

And finally, Games Workshop is partnering with Moon Pig to bring us licensed Warhammer 40k custom birthday cards. Emperor Preserve Us!

In the lawsuit between Apple and Epic the Itch.io app for PC that is accessible on the Epic Store was used to attack Epic and the Unspeakable Games that can be downloaded. Games Workshop still thinks a pandemic is a good time to release a new version of their tabletop wargames. Following last years 9th edition of Warhammer 40k, they announced the 3rd edition of Warhammer Age of Sigmar at their online Warhammer Fest. In other Games Workshop news they appear to be abandoning Japan and we have the evidence. Will the physical stores remain? What will happen to all the translation and localization? And finally, a product of the lockdowns and the desire to game in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles Old World has led to the discovery of a great community of Warmaster gaming.
