Kickstart This New Augmented Reality Game Inspired by Star Wars ‘Holo Chess’


HoloGrid: Monster Battle’s gameplay is similar to Collectible Card Games (CCG’s) such as Magic: The Gathering or Hearthstone, but uses physical playing cards to trigger Augmented Reality creatures and a gameboard. Players will be able to play head-to-head, either locally or remotely, and offline, non digital play is possible as well through a physical board that will come with the product. A “Hybrid” Board Game, Collectible Card Game (CCG), and Digital Game in one, it delivers to players a new type of gaming experience.

Release the Kraken! Mythological Wargaming with ‘Of Gods and Mortals’

I blame Fantasy Flight Games’ Star Wars: X-Wing Fighter game. It was my gateway drug to the world of miniature wargaming.
My habit started small: an A-Wing here, a Tie Interceptor there. As a lifelong Star Wars fan the purchases were easy enough to justify. I didn’t even intent to play the game at first. I [...]

‘Medal of Honor: Warfighter’ Review
