Wacky Wizard Games Imprint and Three New Games Announced by @wwizardgames

Wise Wizard Games announced the launch of Wacky Wizard Games, a new brand imprint focused on family-friendly, lightweight games. Three games are planned for release in 2024 as part of this new brand imprint: Star Realms Academy, Caution Signs, and Pack the Essentials. If you are interested and attending PAX Unplugged they will have prototypes of Caution Signs and Pack the Essentials. "We are super excited to be adding this new family friendly product line to our catalog. We wanted to maintain the focus of Wise Wizard Games on strategy card and dice games with geeky themes, and have created Wacky Wizard Games as an umbrella for lightweight games with a more whimsical, cute vibe," shared Debbie Moynihan, COO of Wise Wizard Games. Star Realms Academy Forge your own star realms, overloaded with cuteness! A kid friendly but still fun for grown-ups version of the popular Star Realms deckbuilding game for 2 players. A little less math, no reading necessary, but still tons of fun! 

Cities of Venus by Tin Robot Games Coming Soon to Kickstarter

Tin Robot Games next project, Cities of Venus is coming to Kickstarter May 2nd.

The year is 2222, and the people of Earth have established floating city-states in the clouds of Venus. To provide aid, Earth periodically sends immigrants and city upgrades in the form of Cloud-drops. However, a catastrophe occurred on Earth, cutting off communication with Venus. No one knows when the last DROP from Earth will come.

As one of these cities' governors, you must compete against other players to establish dominance for your city's survival. Strategically grow and upgrade your city, deploy your scientists to the International Innovation Station, prepare for inevitable hazardous events, and mine the surface for priceless V-nite minerals. You must make the most of every Cloud-drop from Earth; the next one may be the last!


Cities of Venus is a medium-weight sci-fi Euro for 2-4 players – expandable to 6, which combines worker placement, tableau building, and resource-gathering mechanics. Each pledge comes with premium standard components such as quad-layer city player boards with slots for upgrade cards, resource trays, an in-box neoprene mat, and more than 450 game components. With a randomized game-end trigger mechanic and starting deck, every game is different, maximizing replayability. Will you rise to the challenge and lead the independent planet of Venus? 

Cities of Venus features simultaneous play for most of the game. This means MORE PLAYING, less WAITING!
