Other than the obvious big news about 5th edition ... WoTC has some interesting stuff slated.
One is what Mike Mearls calls a "euro" style board game. We'll see if it lives up to that, but it sounds interesting none the less.
"Now on to board games. Lords of Waterdeep is slated for March. It's basd on the city of Waterdeep in Forgotten Realms. Each player takes on a lord of the city and competes for influence and prestige by recruiting adventurer's and sending them on quests. Euro style game. You'll be hearing more about this too as we go forward."
Then Dungeon Command:
"July: Dungeon Command. Mini battles. 12 minis per pack. 2factions: Cormyr and Lolth. Each faction comes with twelve minis. We'll havethe drow set, Sting of Lolth, and the hero set, Heart of Cormyr. You can playera two player game with one set, or you can get both sets and pit one againstthe other. It's a diceless, card-driven game that really focuses on tactics andstrategy with a lot of the random elements removed. Each box comes with a tileset that locks together as well, providing a limited battlefield to play on.Designed by the same folks who designed Lords of Waterdeep. Euro designapproach" All from from ENworld.org
To me interesting stuff jumping out so far and now for me Dungeon Command chief among them. It sounds like a tactical battle game. A return to minis out of WoTC as well. Interesting stuff ... as well the cover art for the 1st ed reprints?
