I’ve also had to chance to play a lot of WG Labs’ recently released Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars on my laptop as well. In fact, I have it open in the other window right now. Because I’ve been playing both the tabletop and PC iterations so much, I really have to give kudos to Hobby World and designers Igor Sklyuev and Ekaterina Gorin for capturing the essence of a 4X empire-building game like Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars (and all of its classic predecessors) in a board game. Not only did they stay faithful to all the key aspects of a 4X game, but they streamlined them into an hour-long experience.

Last time, we showed you five of the powerful women who are part of DC Comics Lil’ Bombshells Series 1.5, which refreshes the Series 1 figures with variant paint designs. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the fresh looks of the five other characters you can find in the Series 1.5 collectible tins:

DC Comics Lil Bombshells Series 1.5
by KYLEWLODYGA / 10 May, 2017

Our DC Comics Lil Bombshells Series 1 figures sold out so fast and received such positive feedback that we wanted to provide a special follow-up for the growing number of fans out there. So, we created Series 1.5 of  these lovable little  DC Comics characters, refreshing the Series 1 figures with eye- poppingly  cool variant paint designs. Coming in blind-reveal tins, Series 1.5 is available nationwide right now! Given the excitement out there, we’d like to give you a closer look at all 10 of the powerful female characters in the set. Let’s start with five of them today:

I love racing games, both in video game and board game form. When designed with a good catch-up mechanic, there’s an extra thrill when you can compare yourself directly to the other players in terms of placement—knowing it could still be anyone’s game—and see how close you truly are to the end of the game. I get a rush from it. Some non-racing board and video games can make it hard to figure out the player in the lead until the points are tallied up at the end, whereas racing games present it front and center.

A few weeks ago was Peachstate Hobby’s Speed Gaming event in Dallas, Texas. The game I had on my table at this particular event was Antoine Bauza and Ludovic Maublanc’s Attack on Titan: The Last Stand, which we are publishing alongside Don't Panic Games this summer. You might have first heard about this game back in 2015 when we first started demoing it at our Gen Con booth. Well, now it's 2017 and we’ve gone through a ton of testing, refinement, and polish. After playing it over 100 times at the Speed Gaming event, I have a feeling this game will be huge!

So, now you’re saying, “All right, I’m sold. I’ve got the whole collection of Series 1 Mighty Meeples lined up on my desk. But what do I do with all of these extra Superman figures I’ve collected?” Well, have you ever considered using these collectible game pieces as, well, game pieces? A fun trend in board gaming right now is bringing your own pieces to a game night in order to customize your play. Instead of playing as boring old blue, you can now play as Batman.

The DC Deck-Building Game Multiverse Box is a fantastic place to store all of your cards from the DC Deck-Building Game and its expansions, as we explained a few weeks ago. While that alone would make it a great addition to your collection, we weren’t content to just stop there! The box comes with the exclusive Multiverse Crossover Pack, an expansion based on the epic DC “Convergence” comic book storyline.

Series 1 of DC Comics Mighty Meeples consists of 30 different classic heroes and villains reimagined as collectible 1” wooden board game figures. Unless you are getting the Mighty Meeples: DC Comics Hall of Justice Collection or the Mighty Meeples: DC Comics Batman Rogues Gallery Collection next year, you will find these figures in three-pack foil bags.

This time, we’re looking at the gameplay step that comes right before you choose your Action: the Move Phase! Just as in the Action Phase, you will have multiple options to choose from but will only be able to select one. During your Move Phase, you can Move your Character, a Tile, or Diseases.
