I had no clue that this game was being made until i saw it at Toy Fair and i was blown away. The board game started life as a humble Kickstarter project. In time, however, it amassed an army of backers some 31,178-strong. These rabid “Souls” and board game fans then proceeded to raise more than $5.4 million in crowdfunding. Now that’s a Kickstarter success story!
The Company behind the game is Steamforged games and it is a 1-4 player exploration and combat game. It comes with many great looking minatures, dice, boards, cards and much more for you and up to 4 people to begin playing.
I was able to play in a boss battle against Dancer of the Boreal Valley (from Dark Souls 3) and i used both a Knight and Warrior to go against him. The Dancer’s actions are controlled by AI cards and your objective is to defeat him so you can advance to the next board. To do so, you have to have the best equipment and experience points avaliable. Your hits, dodges and blocks are determined by the dice and you will lose when both your stamina and health reach together. I was told that there was only about 5 people that actually defeated the Dancer since they started demoing the game back in the summer but I came close but i lost. When one player dies in the game, everyone else is sent back to the bonfire (or in this case, back to start) so it is recommended that you and your players strategize your moves before you make them.
The Game comes out in April and i cannot wait to try this in full.
Get Ready for a great summer and fall as Mcfarlane Toys’ AMC The Walking Dead merchandise line of figures will be released around that time. I was able to take pictures of the Line and here we have a “taking it like a champ” edition of Lucielle (Negan’s Bat), a deluxe box set featuring Negan and Glenn, a 7 inch figure of Carl from when he got his eye got shot, a new character figure of Dwight (coming out summer 2017) and a 10 inch statue of Negan which looks awesome!

Mezco premieres the first doll for their newest brand: LDD Presents – Harley Quinn.
Harley Quinn, the deranged and psychotic poster girl for the terrifying allure of chaos is the darling of DC Comics. Both adorable and dangerous Harley Quinn is the Joker’s devoted girl friend. When not up to no good what pleases Harley most is making the Clown Prince of Crime happy.
Now Mezco proudly presents her in all her deranged glory. Wearing her traditional red and black harlequin clown costume with matching jester hat, Harley is ready to do whatever “Mistah J” needs. Her look is complimented by a permanently affixed domino mask. She comes complete with her oversized hammer, perfect for squashing any pesky bats who try to ruin her puddin’s fun.
Harley Quinn is fashioned on Mezco’s signature LDD PRESENTS body . She stands 10 inches tall and features 5 points of articulation. She comes packed in a specially die cut window box perfect for display, but just like Arkham, it may not hold her for long. LDD Presents- Harley Quinn is available for pre-order at LINK HERE. She breaks into local retailers starting in July-September 2017.
