Indie Boards and Cards

From the Andes to the Pacific Ocean, this month Kickstarter has a handful of competitive two player games set in various locations around the world. Two games are also set in the Middle Ages, while Wizards & Relics is a card game of fantasy duels.

While everything else may be uncertain, Kickstarter continues to host great casual games to delight, distract, and entertain — from some of the most adorable puppy artwork you will ever see and light ten-minute card games to strategic word games and tile laying cave escapes.

An expansion for Celestia has been announced, Love Letter is set to meet Lovecraft, and Resistance is getting an app.

Several games are making their debut at this year’s Origins Game Fair, and two companies announce mergers.

Fans can now vote on the fractions that will appear in Smash Up's 2016 expansion, microgame Coup is available in the app store, and Hasbro has updated the careers featured in The Game of Life.

The Fall 2013 issue of Casual Game Insider is now in stock and available for sale! Print and digital versions are available.

Flash Point: Fire Rescue expansions make the original game even better. Plus: a behind-the-scenes look at the Spiel des Jahres award and a review of Hanabi, 15 things to consider when choosing games for the holidays, how the recommended age label is misleading people everywhere, and a look back at the first 40 years of Realm, a classic abstract game by a prolific designer.
