Bundle of Holding: Indie Cornucopia 6

I love it when Bundle of Holding do their Indie bundles.  They always manage to find fun, eclectic mixes of fun, unique, little games.  This latest offering is no exception, presenting a set of six games.  I hadn't heard of any of them before, so it's cool to have that wee bit of discovery, y'know?… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Indie Cornucopia 6

Bundle of Holding: Deathwatch²

This is an odd one.  So, there were a few Warhammer 40,000 RPGs released by FFG over the years of their license with Games Workshop.  They were all the same system, really, but each with a different focus.  Deathwatch is the game that focuses on the Space Marines, the iconic... icon of the 41st millennium. … Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Deathwatch²

Humble Bundle: Digital Tabletop

There have been a fair few decent tabletop-themed Humble Bundles recently.  This latest offering is for a set of video games based on a selection of board and card games.  This is a great way to play these games solo without all of the setup and tidying. As is usual for these bundles, the offer… Continue reading Humble Bundle: Digital Tabletop

Humble Bundle: Game Design & Puzzlecraft Bundle

Most of the bundles we link to come from the fine folk at Bundle of Holding, which are almost always RPG-focused bundles.  Today, we have something a little bit different in the form of a bundle themed around game design.  Unlike previous game design bundles, this one focuses firmly on tabletop game design. There are… Continue reading Humble Bundle: Game Design & Puzzlecraft Bundle

Bundle of Holding: Mutant: Year Zero

We've made it clear before just how much we love Modiphius.  They just consistently put out quality and, given the sheer range of great games they offer, it's hard to believe that the company is only six years old.  Anyway, that's enough gushing for now.  There's a bundle up just now on Bundle of Holding… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Mutant: Year Zero

Bundle(s) of Holding: Ars Magica 5th Ed.

Bundle of holding have a couple of offers up just now for Ars Magica, the magical fantasy RPG from Atlas Games.  It was originally published by Lion Rampant and then by my beloved White Wolf.  Indeed, it was created by Mark Rein-Hagen, who also created Vampire: The Masquerade and, with it, the World of Darkness. … Continue reading Bundle(s) of Holding: Ars Magica 5th Ed.

Bundle of Holding: Delta Green

Most of the Cthulhu mythos material out there is set during or often before the early 20th century.  In the past few years, we've seen some sources bring this mythos into the modern day.  My favourite of these updates is The Laundry Files series by Charles Stross, but another interesting one is the Delta Green… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Delta Green

Bundle of Holding: Lots of Gumshoe

Mystery is a crucial part of many RPG campaigns, but there are some fundamental issues with the structures of some of these campaigns.  It's great when players find, identify and interpret clues, but they don't always find them, and a couple such misses can leave a mystery unsolvable.  I mean, this can be overcome by… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Lots of Gumshoe

Bundle of Holding: Mindjammer

I'm still looking for the sci-fi RPG that fits me just right, giving me a good system that can be really flexible and gives an interesting setting that both gives a good jumping-off point for stories, but doesn't constrict with an existing and expansive IP.  This latter point, on not being bogged down with a… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Mindjammer
