Game Theory Tables Launches The Origins on Kickstarter

Game Theory Tables might be a new company but it’s the same team that operates BBO Poker Tables, a prominent poker table brand in the US for the past 15 years. They’re now moving into other types of games with The Origins, a new entry in the game table space.

The Origins is currently being funded through Kickstarter and is available in the US, Canada, EU, and UK.

The table measures 72″ x 48″ x 32″ with a playing surface of 61″ x 37″ in a recessed space of 4″. It can set up to 8 and can be used as a game table and “dining table” with the additional top that needs to be added on for $499.

The table comes with a neoprene mat and the table itself features a choice of colors. The Origins table is made from solid ash wood.

The Kickstarter also features exclusive add-ons like a dice tower and tiered tray.

Each item is discounted with the table being 35% off and also features free shipping in the US.

With an established company behind it, this game table company might be the mass market breakthrough that’s been looking for someone to fill it. There have been some busts of projects by other companies in the space so here’s rolling the dice this one comes through.

The table is available in two waves, with the first expected to ship in August 2021.

You can back the table for $1,499 and the campaign ends on February 19 at 11pm. It’s already been funded so it’s a guarantee to make it that far.

TinkerTurf’s Next Full Color Wargaming Terrain Kickstarter Is Live!

In early 2018 TinkerHouse Games launched a Kickstarter creating affordable, great looking, easily assembled, full-color terrain for tabletop miniatures games and successfully delivered to all backers to critical acclaim. Now TinkerTurf is back with more full color easily assembled wargaming terrain with an aim to help you populate your table with beautiful structures so you can enjoy more time gaming and less time painting!

The best action scenes feature giant structures with extreme verticality. TinkerTurf is bringing that kind of blockbuster drama to your tabletop with the TinkerTurf Sci-Fi Release 2.1. The enormous SatComm Installation is worthy as the climactic set-piece location for any action franchise (RIP Arecibo). The MagLev Rail Starter creates an elevated battle space and adds a dynamic element to rail lines; it can be used standalone or in conjunction with the MagLev components from our previous release. Protect these strategic assets (or form an unforgiving arena enclosure) with the modular Perimeter Bundle, featuring a functional gate that opens and closes. The release is rounded out with new Tanker and Crate Containers, sized to fit onto the rail cars and work with our previous containers.

The TinkerTurf Sci-Fi Release 2.1 Kickstarter campaign runs from January 18th, 2021 until February 12th, 2021; and features backer levels from $20-$220 including a limited number of “Early Bird” special bundles.

Games Workshop Reveals the T’au Remora for Aeronautica Imperialis

The T’au are getting some new additions to their fleet for Aeronautica Imperialis, the Remora Drones! These AI-controlled aircraft are coming soon from Forge World.

The Remora are light fighters as opposed to defensive drones. They’re mainly used to fly in environents too hostile for traditional aircraft but have evolved to be so much more. They are now used as a support role adding extra firepower.

With good speed and agility, they can get their weapons into good firing position, made to take on clunkier bombers. They also have the ability to hover in place to create bottlenecks.

Armed with burst cannons and a pair of seeker missiles they can take out far more expensive aircraft their pitted against.

They also benefit from the “Stealth” rule due to their size giving them some protection against enemy ground assets.

They also are able to ignore g-force making it easier to execute tight turns making them very nimble. The “Jink” rule allows them to slip into advantageous firing positions or dodge out of a deadly fire arc.
