Some bits of what happened in the gaming world in March
Prepare to DIE !
Inconceivable! The Princess Bride: The Board Game will be a series of tabletop games, published by Game Salute, with product releases beginning in 2013.
In order to do justice to the entire story, The Princess Bride: The Board Game is comprised of individual scenes, with each scene presenting a mini-game that advances players through the central story. This allows players looking for a quick, fun visit to a beloved classic to play a game that lasts under an hour, while players who want to experience the entire Princess Bride story in one sitting can enjoy an epic day of fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles…
In Firefly: The Game, players captain their own Firefly-class transport ship, traveling the ‘Verse with a handpicked crew of fighters, mechanics and other travelers. As a captain desperate for work, players are compelled to take on any job — so long as it pays. Double-dealing employers, heavy-handed Alliance patrols and marauding Reavers are all in a day’s work for a ship’s captain at the edge of the ‘Verse. Firefly: The Game is a high-end thematic tabletop boardgame from Gale Force Nine (GF9). It will be the first in a series of tabletop hobby boardgames and miniatures games from GF9 set in the Firefly Universe.

Princess of the dragon throne is an area control and resource management board game that uses deck building as a driver for the other game elements. Players select cards from a continually changing pool of opportunities to build a unique deck of rebels. Players manage resources to support their uprising, and use the influence of their rebels to gain control of the various realms of the kingdoms, which in turn gives them special abilities to further their cause.
