    Bored? Game! has teamed up with Chaosium's 'Cult of Chaos' Organised Play campaign 'A Time to Harvest'. It's early days yet, and we are awaiting further details on how the campaign will work, but if anyone is interested in joining this roleplaying adventure, then please get in touch via our Contact Page or Facebook to register your curiosity into the unspeakable horrors that will no doubt await you!

    What we do know, is that, “It’s a tightly focused campaign, set in Lovecraft Country, which is inspired by and builds on H. P. Lovecraft's tales", said Mike Mason, line editor for Call of Cthulhu.

    Written by established Call of Cthulhu authors Brian Sammons, Charles P Zaglanis, Glynn Owen Barrass and Mike Mason, A Time to Harvest is an an ideal campaign for novice Keepers and players alike, with plenty of advice throughout, but veteran players will also find it engaging and fun too.

    "Things are not always what they seem and the players will have to navigate the various twists and turns. It’s also pretty fast paced, with plenty of action putting the investigators into dangerous situations. Whether around the learned halls of Miskatonic University, the streets of Arkham, or the wilds of Vermont, the players will have plenty of opportunities to explore, investigate, and face threats not of this world!”, said Mason.

    So, watch this space for more information, and remember, submit your interest ASAP to avoid disspointment!

    Another exciting release for 2016 will hit the Bored? Game! HQ this coming May!...

    Run fast. Score big. Android: Mainframe is a fast-paced game of futuristic crime and cyber domination for two to four players.

    You are a runner, an elite cybercriminal capable of hacking through corporate servers with ease. When you receive an alert that the security protocols at Titan Transnational Bank have been deactivated, you know it's time to go to work. However, you quickly realize you're not the only runner to have received the alert, and you're not the only runner looking to extract cash and data from Titan's servers…

    It's one thing to slice and weave through corporate security. It's another thing entirely to outhack rival runners. Can you do it? In Android: Mainframe, you and your friends compete for control of Titan's various nodes. Establish your access points, reroute data pathways, and secure as many of Titan's nodes as you can. In the end, the runner with the biggest haul wins!

    Unravel the mysteries of Ravenloft® in this dread adventure!

    Under raging storm clouds, the vampire Count Strahd von Zarovich stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Raveanloft. Far below, yet not beyond his keen eyesight, a party of adventurers has just entered his domain. Strahd’s face forms the barest hint of a smile as his dark plan unfolds. He knew they were coming, all according to his plan. A lightning flash rips through the darkness, but Strahd is gone. The master of Castle Ravenloft is having guests for dinner—and you are invited.

     

    • A 256-page fantasy-horror adventure for characters levels 1 – 10, Curse of Strahd™ provides everything a Dungeon Master needs to create an exciting and memorable play experience.

    Players will also love to get their hands on a physical tarroka deck of cards produced by Gale Force 9 and available with the release of the adventure. The tarokka deck is a powerful tool for both Madam Eva and for Dungeon Masters running Curse of Strahd. By using the tarokka deck to randomize locations within the adventure, Dungeon Masters can customize each party's exploration of Barovia, allowing Curse of Strahd to be replayed for years to come. The Vistani have long been masters of fortune telling. In the hands of a Vistani seer, tarokka cards can tell tales of the future and provide answers to many a dark and mysterious question.

    Arriving April 2016, the long anticipated Star Wars Rebellion Board Game. To pre-order your copy, click here.

    Star Wars: Rebellion is a board game of epic conflict between the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance for two to four players! In Star Wars™: Rebellion, you control the entire Galactic Empire or the fledgling Rebel Alliance. You must command starships, account for troop movements, and rally systems to your cause. Featuring more than 150 plastic miniatures and two game boards that account for thirty-two of the Star Wars galaxy’s most notable systems, Star Wars: Rebellion features a scope that is as large and sweeping as any StarWars game before it.

    Yet for all its grandiosity, Star Wars: Rebellion remains intensely personal, cinematic, and heroic. As much as your success depends upon the strength of your starships, vehicles, and troops, it depends upon the individual efforts of such notable characters as Leia Organa, Mon Mothma, Grand Moff Tarkin, and Emperor Palpatine.
