Steamforged Games, leading UK tabletop games developer and publisher (Monster Hunter World: The Board Game, DARK SOULS: The Board Game , Horizon Zero Dawn: The Board Game , Bardsung , Epic Encounters , and more) announce acquisition of the Euthia IP and a partnership with Czech studio, Diea Games, to resurrect the Euthia board game crowdfunding campaign that was cancelled in May  this year after raising over half a million dollars in just two days.  Euthia, rated 8.8 on BoardGameGeek and currently out-of-print, is an open-world fantasy sandbox RPG board game that initially ran on Kickstarter in 2020 and was well-received by the public. Described as Diablo-esque by reviewers, the game can be played competitively, solo, or cooperatively.

Pokémon TCG: New Kadabra Cards Allowed In Future Sets

Illusionist Uri Gellar gives Nintendo and The Pokémon Company permission to use the name Kadabra on Pokémon TCG cards again.

For those not aware the illusionist sued Nintendo in 2000, and also asked that Kadabra no longer be put on Pokemon cards, stating the company created the Pokémon in his likeness including his signature spoon bending and the Japanese name being similar to his, Yungeller.

For 17 years no new Kadabra cards have been printed, the last being from the 2003 Skyridge set. Abra was last printed in 2007's Mysterios Treasures along with Alakazam but did not include the Kadabra evolution. We have seen Alakazam as Star, EX, GX, and V cards which are Basic and don't require evolution.

In an email to TheGamer, Geller wrote that "Due to the tremendous volume of emails I am still getting begging me to allow Nintendo to bring back Kadabra/Yungeller, I sent [...] a letter to the chairman of Nintendo giving them permission to relaunch the Uri Geller Kadabra/Yungeller worldwide."

We will have to wait and see if this change of heart will result in The Pokémon Company printing new cards.
