Video: Unearthing the TORG Boxed Set (original) by West End Games 1990

“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

Video: Unboxing Warhammer 40k Shadowspear

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.

Video: Nemesis Unboxing

The latest Awaken Realms miniatures boardgame, Nemesis, has the very familiar sci-fi setting of a crew stranded on a xenomorph infested space ship. Although it is cooperative, each player has both a personal and corporate secret agenda that are part of their victory conditions. So when a player tells you that the engines are working or that you are totally headed to Earth, you might want to see for yourself. High-quality components and gorgeous miniatures make this game worth checking out. Don’t believe me? Watch the unboxing!

Is that a xenomorph egg in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Video: Unboxing Star Trek Adventures Starter Set

We take a look at the Star Trek Adventures Starter Set by Modiphius. It includes pre-generated character sheets, a ship sheet, dice, tokens, maps, and a starting adventure campaign. It uses the 2d20 system with threat and momentum as currency mechanics for both players and the gamemaster. This is a much more accessible option for trying the game and will get you playing right out of the box.
