Topics

Gary Gygax Biography Film

According to information published on the examiner that has now made its way all the way to the Wired Geekdad blog. There is a Gary Gygax biography film in the making, it is to be part biopic, part action. The film is rumored to have a “huge start” playing Gary and a $150 million dollar budget. Micah and I skeptically discuss.

D&D Miniatures Return!

Dungeons and Dragons miniatures are to return some time next year in the form of non-randomized themed packs/boxes to be used as part of a new ‘battle game’. The game is said to focus more on skill than luck by utilizing an action card system instead of dice. The game will undergo rigorous playtesting to achieve the best rules possible via open/closed beta testing (Source). Paizo has also announced more minis, but theirs will be random and part of an upcoming battle/skirmish game as well.
