The Monsters of Night of Man. Walker (Mechs) and Kaiju

When we demoed Night of Man at the World Boardgame Championships, players were especially excited about three aspects of the game.



1. The size of the components. More than a couple of folks asked if this was an enlarged demo version. Nope. The counters really are 1.375" square. Well, except for the Walkers and Kaiju. They are a whopping 1.5"! I'll do a video on this soon, displaying the counters so that everyone can appreciate the size.

2. The tactical detail. Sure this game…

Night of Man. The Feroxi. The Backstory.

Today I thought I'd share some more information on Night of Man's second alien race, the Feroxi. Read on.

They were ancient enemies, their war dating back to their early days of intergalactic travel. Two species as different as Ptah and Heka, technology and magic, individuality and collectivism, destined to fight. The Sons of Ra paid lip service to the spiritual, the descendants of the Great Mother lived their spirituality. And so they fought, across the galaxies. On hot, steamy…

On Killers, Cards, and Creating. Night of Man Designer Notes

I’m not good at designer notes. To recount the ups and downs, trials, tribulations, and frustrations that have been part of Night of Man (and still are) would take up a book. I know, I’ve written several. I guess A Walk in Hell (AWIH), a game I designed for The Armchair General magazine, birthed the endeavor that was to be Night of…

On Abstraction. Brian's Designer Notes for Uprising and Army of Shadows

Once again my blog has been hijacked by a more capable mind than mine. Today Brian Train discusses his views on abstract games, specifically Uprising and Army of Shadows, the games in Yaah! #2. And without further ado, walking across the stage, Mister. BRIAN. TRAIIIIIIIN!!! Give it up folks. …

Shayne Logan Dishes on Old School Tactical Design

Shayne Logan is the designer of Old School Tactical for Flying Pig Games. As we reach the final tweaking stage before sending the game to the printers, I thought it might be a good idea to let him explain his thinking in designing the game. Take it away, Shayne.…

Just got Heroes of the Blitzkrieg, and it is a work of art. It will be a shame to punch the counters. I hope you do a module on the BEF Mark. The quality of your games are superb.

I think it would have been better to have the British 1st Corps fight on the river Weser in the game Blood and bridges. Having served there in 1985 with 35 Engineer regiment, it is where we would have fought and hopefully won. Plus the scenery is much better to die in. Great game, and just ordered Heroes of the blitzkrieg.

Mark, I have to say that when I got Blood & Bridges it was the highest quality war game production I had seen in my life - but today I got my Noville.... OH MY GOD.

Every page is laminated. The counters are crisp, colurful and centered! And the map... Wow it weighs like 10 pounds... WOW!!!!

Hi Mark,

You posted elsewhere about a female archer[in the school bus discussion], what were you talking about? I didn't see a reference here, but not sure what I am looking for.
