Don’t get ghosted with Hasbro’s Love is Dead party game!

For singles tired of the same ol’ dating app drama or occasional horror stories, and looking to amp up their dating game in the coming months, Hasbro just released a brand-new party game for teens and adults perfect for the occasion.

The Love is Dead game will have players dying laughing at parties, get-togethers, or game nights with friends. Love is Dead is available now at Walmart and Target.com.

Hasbro Announces Risk: Shadow Forces

During Hasbro’s Pulse Con event, the Avalon Hill panel announced Risk: Shadow Forces. It’s been 10 years since Risk Legacy was released and this new version is a new legacy game.

In the game, you’ll pick factions to battle it out against friends including guerilla, corporate, syndicate, desperate masses, unified forces. You’ll pick a warlord to lead your forces. Warlords have unique tactics and strategies you can customize during the game. They’ll lead the global armies as well s a separate skirmish board where you’ll have more small-scale missions. The Warlords’ powers are featured through a deck.

Warlords have emerged to not only lead the various factions but also go on covert missions. Each of these covert missions is a squad-level skirmish game that will have a direct effect on the world map in certain undetermined secret locations.

Risk Legacy was a game-changing release ushering in the “legacy” genre of games where your choices and results in the game change the board for future games. In “legacy” games, you mark the game board putting things like stickers on it, and even throw away parts! Every player impacts how the world “evolves” including the history, cities, and how their factions fight. You’ll unlock new rules and watch events unfold with each game. This means no two games will be the same.

It is the year 2050 and the world is not as it should be. Tides lash the shorelines, smashing everything in their reach. Hurricanes whip down out of nowhere and destroy entire cities while uncontrollable fire storms tear across nearly every continent. Viruses rage out of control. Within this chaos nefarious factions work from the shadows conducting disinformation campaigns and mobilizing mercenaries to collect a new mysterious energy resource of incalculable power. These factions, led by ruthless warlords, are fighting for power and control, but they are also simply battling for the destiny of humanity. The shadow conflict begins. 

The game includes:

  • Four sealed envelopes and one sealed container. You will be directed to open these envelopes as you play your campaign missions in order.
  • Features 6 highly detailed 28mm warlords miniature figures with tactic cards
  • Includes 15 missions: 10 global world map games (>60 mins) and 5 covert skirmish games (30 mins)
  • Includes two 9 x 14 double-sided gameboards
  • Global gameboard, 2 double-sided gameboards, over 175 cards, 5 warlord miniatures, 5 HQs, 45 3-faction units, 180 1-faction units, sealed container labeled B, 4 sealed envelopes, 5 faction reference cards, range guide, 95 tokens, sticker sheet, 5 6-sided dice, rulebook, quick rules reference card

Risk: Shadow Forces is for 3 to 5 players ages 13+. You can pre-order it now on Hasbro Pulse for $68.99.

Hero Collector and Hasbro Join Forces To Bring Transformers Chess To Kickstarter

Transformers Chess Set

Hero Collector is joining forces with Hasbro to launch their first ever Kickstarter campaign: an all-new Transformers Chess Set!

This epic chess set will feature 32 unique game pieces – 16 for the heroic Autobots and 16 for the villainous Decepticons – created specifically for the Kickstarter and modeled on the classic 1980s Generation One (G1) Transformers animated cartoon! Each model is digitally sculpted, then cast in metallic resin and painted by hand. The sculpts, which show the Transformers in their robot form, were developed with Hasbro and are based on the original animation designs and careful study of the animated series.

Standing 4-6” tall on a base marked with the symbol for the relevant chess piece, these robotic warriors will wage war on an exclusive Cybertron-themed chess board, with color-coded symbols in Autobot red or Decepticon purple. These two warring factions include such iconic characters as:

  • Autobot King: Optimus Prime. The beloved commander of the Autobots, Optimus Prime championed freedom in countless clashes across Cybertron – and Earth, where he adopted his famous truck alternate mode.
  • Autobot Knight: Hot Rod. A young and brash Autobot with a race car alt-mode, Hot Rod eventually grew to lead the Autobots – as Rodimus Prime!
  • Autobot Pawn: Bumblebee. The heart of the Autobots, Bumblebee was quick to befriend their human allies in his iconic yellow beetle alt-mode.
  • Autobot Pawn: Prowl. The surly strategist of the Autobots, Prowl’s police car alt-mode suited his no-nonsense personality.
  • Decepticon King: Megatron. The feared leader and founder of the Decepticons, and the eternal nemesis of Optimus Prime, Megatron sought nothing less than complete iron-fisted domination of Cybertron!
  • Decepticon Queen: Starscream. The scheming second-in-command of the Decepticons, Starscream constantly plotted to overthrow Megatron.
  • Decepticon Knight: Soundwave. The loyal comms officer of the Decepticons, Soundwave gathered intelligence using his trio of cassette-minions.
  • Decepticon Knight: Shockwave. Theops commander of the Decepticons, Shockwave’s cold logic and laser-turret mode made him a deadly threat.

This Kickstarter has a delivery date of Q4 2022. A variety of backer gifts are planned for fans who want to go the distance in bringing this game to life – including a Transformers pin badge, Transformers profile book, and more exclusive Gen-1 chess pieces!
