IDW Games will no longer publish the Metal Gear Solid boardgame. This means the designer also loses the license for the IP from Konami. This leaves more than 2,000 pre-orders on BackerKit and Amazon in limbo. The Legend of the Five Rings Living Card Game by Fantasy Flight is coming to an end. This doesn’t affect the RPG or novels they will continue to support. Wet Ink Games has released three new dossiers for their weird World War I game, Never Going Home.
We open up a real oddity in the history of the Mutant Chronicles, the 2007 Starter Set for the Collectible Miniatures game by Fantasy Flight Games licensed by Paradox Entertainment. It contains six 54mm pre-painted miniatures and supposedly everything you need to start playing. Rules were co-written by Eric M. Lang so it might be a playable game. The earliest sign of its short lifespan was the switch from blind box booster packs to just straightforward expansion boxes. It only lasted for about two years but is a very interesting attempt to take advantage of the fanbase that existed somewhere between boardgames and wargaming. Join us as we take look inside the box and try to piece together what created this short-lived oddity. In the midst of the Rackham pre-painted trend of AT-43 and Confrontation: Age of Ragnarok, this addition to the Mutant Chronicles series is a real head-scratcher.
