DEAL: American Dream Is Tabletop Strategy At It’s Best, An Exclusive Q&A With The Creator

It’s no coincidence that some of the most popular television series’ in recent years have been Breaking Bad, Narcos, Sons of Anarchy, Weeds, and The Wire. We’re captivated by the darkness, we lurk in the shadows hoping to catch a glimpse of the criminal underworld and their illicit activities… As long as we can do it from the safety of our own homes. The only real problem with this approach, even the greatest shows have to come to an end. When that happens, how do you indulge your dark side without the risk of living dangerously.

DEAL: American Dream is your chance to become the leader of a criminal organization vying for control over the illicit drug trade, in an epic tabletop strategy game.

In order to win, you’ll need to earn respect through the production, sale, and trade of dope while expanding your operation by any means necessary. At it’s core, DEAL is about alliances and betrayal. Players have to negotiate, fix prices, establish distribution networks, trust each other and, of course, backstab one another in the name of the almighty dollar.

If you’re anything like me or the 405 backers that successfully funded the game on Kickstarter, you won’t want to miss this exclusive Q&A session with, Tristan, the creator of DEAL.

STARDUST VANGUARDS Bringing 4 Player Local Free For All Mech Combat To PS4

Grab your friends and bust out the controllers, STARDUST VANGUARDS brings local four-player dueling to the PS4 on January 19th, 2016! 

Each player takes the role of a military commander in space piloting a precision combat robot with a powerful energy sword and a very limited use auto-aiming machine gun. As you kill off your rivals you’ll earn “RP” (“reinforcement points”) which you’ll charge up and use to summon computer-controlled reinforcements to fight alongside you.

The more RP you have, the bigger and badder your NPC army will be once you summon them! The game is deceptively strategic at thr higher levels of play where players choose to take more of a direct combat approach or to hang back and let your NPCs do most of the work for you. Of course, you can always just use your forces as a makeshift shield to retreat behind, and since you die in one hit, that might not be a bad idea when things go south.
