Another Unboxing of Sovereign Skies by Deep Water Games. This is the Kickstarter edition that features several stretch goal enhancements like a chromium printed box, enhance wooden game pieces and two additional expansions included.
Long ago in a time of war, the six alien planets of the Abyssi cluster worked hard to find diplomacy and eventually came to form a fragile democracy. For humankind, the discovery of this cluster could mean abundant and cheap energy in the form of the earth-rare Atlum crystal. Now several human factions are racing in to grab a share.
In Sovereign Skies, you play one of the powerful houses of Old-Earth now orbiting the six planets of the Abyssi cluster to recruit alien senators for favors and to establish occupation by constructing and activating bases for energy and influence.
Each turn you’ll move your Mothership and perform 1 to 3 of the actions on a Planet to help you earn the Energy and Influence you’ll need to win the game. Add a Ship, collect a Politic card, and/or perform a Planet’s Special action.
The game features big strategic depth, worker-movement action selection rondel, a unique scoring mechanism for area control quick 45-minute playtime for a 4 player game and beautiful art and graphic design.

Unboxing and Flipthrough of the first issue of a new RPG series from 2000 AD and Judge Dredd publishers Rebellion. Each issue is a stand-alone game for up to seven players, from some of the most exciting RPG designers and artists in the industry.
Designed for ease of play for veterans and newbies alike, all you need to play is the magazine, some pencils and three six-sided dice.
The rules and format are designed around accessibility and ease of play for beginner and established players alike. First-time role players can read the four-page rule sheet, choose the most fun-sounding character, and get straight to playing.
One player is the Games Master, while the others control up to six Protagonists who will lead the story. The magazine has been carefully laid out for ease of GMing, keeping all of the important information at a glance. The rules are designed to keep the action flowing while giving the GM a clear structure to work with.
Every conflict roll is contested, so attacks and damage are decided in a single moment. All rolls are on three six-sided dice, so even with the odds against you, you’ll always have a fighting chance.

“The storm has a name… The Other Roleplaying Game, er, Torg, I mean, Torg.”
The year is 1990. MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice, and Technotronic are teaching the world to dance. Nothing compares to Sinead O’Conner. TV would be forever changed with the debuts of Twin Peaks, 90210, Fresh Prince, and Law & Order. And West End Games of d6 Star Wars fame would release Torg, a cinematic multi-genre role-playing game that used cards.
Join us as we unearth the original d20 system and discuss what led to the game being buried for so long. Come see what 1990 gaming looked like. #torg #torgeternity #ulissesspiele
Unboxing the Warhammer 40k Shadowspear box set. This box leads up to the Vigilus campaign and contains Primaris Ultramarines versus Dark Legion. The Librarian in Phobos armor and the new daemon engine, the Venomcrawler, are the most notable part of the new miniatures. These are all new original sculpts and no repackaged sprues from previous releases. It contains a campaign book and two mini codexes. This refreshes a tired line of chaos space marine sculpts and gives the Phobos keyword more use for the Primaris.
