You’re one of the Great Old Ones – beings of ancient and eldritch power. Cosmic forces have held you at bay for untold aeons, but at last the stars are right and your maniacal cult has called you to this benighted place.

Gravwell (Video Review)

In Gravwell: Escape from the 9th Dimension, players command spaceships that have been pulled through a black hole, transporting them into a different dimension. With each ship lacking fuel to get home, each player must collect basic elements from surrounding asteroids, using the gravity of the dimension and what little resources they have in order to reach the warp gate that will take them home. But in this dimension, moving ships will travel towards the nearest object, which is usually another ship, and when those objects are moving either forward or backward, reaching the warp gate isn’t always easy.

HEX: Shards of Fate

I would be the first one to groan about hearing about another trading card game (even though I admit this one looks cool), but this might be the future of board games in general (I know some of you won’t have your cardboard taken from your cold dead hands). From my trip to Seattle last year I spent some time at Microsoft offices, and seeing coffee tables with embedded touchable screens left the impression that card board games might not be around for ever. Will games start heading in this direction in the future or will there be two separate worlds of gaming heading our way. This is the beginning of that debate and you will decide it!
