Prodigy ventures to places most hybrid board/videogames shy away from

With board games continuing to increase in popularity, it is no surprise that there has been a lot of crossover between that space and videogames. Not only are a lot of board games being adapted or reimagined digitally, but s...

Get your table-flipping on with Tabletop Simulator on Steam Early Access

We've all been so mad we could flip a table, and for the longest time we've had to use outdated AOL RP-speak and emoticons to convey said anger electronically. Well, those days are over with the advent of Tabletop Simulator,...

That chess game with DLC is coming to the PS4

Pure Chess has already hit the Wii U and 3DS, but it's coming to the PS4 soon. VooFoo Studios released the game way back in 2012 on the PS3 and Vita, but has decided to start porting it to current systems, hence the new release date. It'll ring in at $7.99 for the basic version, or $14.99 for all the DLC. Yes, there's DLC in a chess game.

This Wii U and 3DS chess game will have day one DLC

I don't know why, but the prospect of "day one DLC" for a chess game on the Wii U and 3DS had me laughing for quite a bit. Developer VooFoo is all set to launch Pure Chess this week, and you'll have to fork over some cas...

Hybrid board/videogame Collusion full of lies and deceit

Getting to know the people behind the Mega Man Board Game

It's safe to say that the Mega Man Board game Kickstarter is a massive success. In just under 24 hours it cleared $150,000, which far exceeds its $70,000 goal. But in an odd turn of events, Capcom is not funding the game -- they just gave board game manufacturer Jasco the license to create a project on their own.

I had a chat with Jasco Games president and founder, Jason Hawronsky, to see how a project like this comes to life, where you'll be able to pick it up once it's actually out, and what we can expect from Jasco and Mega Man in the future.

Space Hulk digital version now available on iPad photo
Space Hulk digital version now available on iPad
by Conrad Zimmerman

Space Hulk, the Games Workshop board game of paranoid derelict exploration, has found a new home on iPad today. Featuring cross-platform play with the PC and Mac versions, you can now skulk around killing your friends pretty much anywhere for $9.99.

Few games manage to capture the Aliens vibe better than Space Hulk does. With its modular board design that makes each exploration fresh and the uncertainty which comes from not knowing how dangerous a group of Genestealers might be at first gives the most delightful tension to everything. Unfortunately, I've yet to read a glowing review of the digital release, so I'll probably just stick to the tabletop for now.

Impressions: DICE+

Earlier this year, we got our first look at DICE+, which promises to combine the physicality and social aspect of board gaming with the wider appeal of tablet-based videogames. With tons of features listed, it appeared to be a pretty slick piece of technology, but limited by its short list of compatible software. For now, that is still a pretty accurate assessment.
