OFFICIAL TEAM FORTRESS 2 CHESS SET ON THE WAY
NECA and WizKids, the team behind last year’s Half Life 2 gravity gun, have revealed NextChess, a Team Fortress 2 variant on the classic game of chess. While the standard rules of chess apply, this new game has a unique twist: changeable hat toppers.
Players are able to claim hats from other pieces and assume the movement characteristics of pieces captured, adding an element of variation and challenge to the standard game of chess.
For example, if you’re pyro is a bishop I could steal that hat for my heavy who may have been a pawn, making him a bishop now, gaining the bishop’s movement ability.
Look for the new set sometime this summer.
Pushing the limits of hat technology!

the Art’s a little tacky but these are all great games, very much of the brain-burner kind.
it’s been scientifically proven that XKCD is always relevant, no matter what the situation. For instance, board games…
PSA: The universe is probably a computer simulation.
That is all.
Some cool art from the upcoming blizzard game HearthStone: Heroes of Warcraft. Not gonnal lie, this game’s awesome! it’s currently in closed Beta right now but blizzard announced the open beta due in the next few months.
This guy’s getting his shit kicked in arena mode. Arena’s hard yo.
It has been said that Libythth music no longer fairs one tape what it did to it, and only one block of rock it’s not. Semi-dissolved nanoguitars rotated by whose completely electronic sorting, the instrumenting and a former heavy projection/lead by cried vocals once resembled the section of the rhythm. One has too much with the meaning words connected, which became fewer important, and for the first time its ancient exhilerator began to accelerate, and in the year 2009 the music of the characters of the Weglibythth to catch up now is more complex and the use of the magic writes by orthographically correct enclosure and trucs of camoflage. She begins to observe like a fruitscape and by seeing a baby sample to emerge! Little common embryos needs nutrition that its body will convert in fruit (photosynthesized at the odd melodies and at the placed harmonies, which develop on a synthesizer) If you, drummer, a piece this fruit eats, form its own bodies a skeleton, a fat and muscles which can be compared with knocking and with the loops. They then cannot help, but cause their more poison enhanced brain-foot to shift and, while the time runs out itself, you must your intestines and flexible container empty and sleeping go to death.
use arrow keys for motion steps and then powerful Z to fire Z-laser!
maybe X as well some day.
beware the enemies and especially the last enemy and the boss and oh no ghosts. – [WHAT IS THIS.txt]
Post Future Vagabond by Michael Brough
from The RPS article:
Intriguingly, Post Future Vagabond is part of SHARECART1000, which means the save file can be used with any other game made under the name of SHARECART1000, like Kyle Reimergarten’s FJORDS or The Isles by Zaratustra and Karyn Ribas. Installing the games in the same SHARECART1000 directory may cause magic to happen.
Inmates playing chess from their prison cells, by Cornell Capa, 1972 [700x486]
Keep going, you can win.
The galaxy is in limbo. In a time of such such betrayal, trust is a word that is loosely associated with foolishness. As you await the arrival of trade goods, which should have arrived a week ago, you check your daily logs. A transmission hails in and is patched through. It’s the Hacan trade ambassador alerting you that as of now, “All trades are off.”
You look despondent as the screen resigns to static accompanied by a low rumbling. The proximity klaxons scream through your base and the screen flickers with a sight you never wished to see. An orb so large, easily mistaken for a planet, eclipses your distant star. Horrified, you realize what lies before you - a Warsun. He sold you out, and now he’s having the L1z1x Mindnet do his dirty work.
As your knees hit the ground, so does the first volley of bombardment on your homeworld. Noise fades out as you witness a temple in the distance erupt, exploding into the sky - a cataclysmic reminder, that in times like these, there is no room for trust.
Twilight Imperium is an epic board game of galactic conquest for 3-6 players. Taking on the role of one of ten ancient civilizations, players compete for interstellar supremacy through warfare, trade, uncertain allegiances, and political dominance. Each civilization provides a unique game experience with different abilities and play styles. Will you play as the Emirates of Hacan and preside over every trade agreement made in the galaxy, or will you be the Federation of Sol and rapidly take over worlds in hopes of dominating the entire galaxy? In Twilight Imperium many roads lead to Rome (or Mecatol Rex), but no road is without its bumps.
