Mossbark Games is bringing Morels to your phone or tablet in just a few weeks.

Morels is a card game that takes mushroom foraging as its theme. Players forage, sell, and cook varieties of mushrooms to outscore their opponent. The digital adaptation includes asynchronous cross-platform multiplayer, pass and play, 3 AI difficulties and more!

Partnering with designer Brent Povis and Two Lantern Games, Mossbark Games founder, Brian Laager, says,

It’s such an easy game to learn and play but has a depth of tactical and strategic decisions. I also love the unique theme. Living in the Pacific Northwest for 10 years has given me such an appreciation for wild edible mushrooms that I go out a few times a year myself to find them!

Look for Morels in the App Store or Google play on November 29th but in the meantime, check out a video of the app in action over on Youtube.

Digidiced announced on Twitter that their next project is Castles of Burgundy.  Digidiced is the same team that brought you digital versions of Cottage Garden, Bohnanza: The Duel, Terra Mystica, Agricola: All Creatures Big and Small, Patchwork, and Le Harve to digital platforms.  Look for Castles of Burgundy on your favorite digital platform in 2019.

Asmodee Digital has released a digital application version of Onirim, originally from Shadi Torbey.  The goal of the game remains the same: play through a deck of cards symbolizing a mysterious labyrinthine dreamscape, where Nightmares may pop up at any time (even several times in a row), to find 8 doors that designate the way out.  The game is currently available for $0.99 for iOS here and Android here.  The 7 expansions for the physical game are not yet available on the digital platforms, but perhaps something to look for in the future if the app does well.  You can learn more by checking out Asmodee’s website here or watching the trailer for the game on YouTube.

The award-winning murder mystery board game Mysterium has been released for the iOS platform.  In this cooperative board game, one player takes on the role of the ghost of a murder victim who uses various types of cards to give clues to the other players (paranormal psychics) who will use those clues to ultimately solve the mystery of the murder.

The iOS digital version of the game features online multiplayer for up to 7 players and works cross-platform between the iOS, Android, and Steam versions. There is a solitaire and story mode as well.

Toucharcade.com has written an informative article with more information on this release.  You can read it in full here.

talisman horus screen

In the long history of Warhammer 40,000 (from Games Workshop), and it’s very long, almost 10,000 years long, no event has enthralled the minds of lore-hounds like The Horus Heresy.  Amidst a galaxy spanning quest to reunite the human empire, Horus the Warmaster, right hand of the Emperor, leader of tens of thousands of space marines, betrays his leader and attacks Terra.  He is joined, not just by almost half of existing space marines from other armies, but by the very gods of chaos themselves, goading and guiding Horus and his black-hearted legions in their betrayal.  Now you can relive this moment in Talisman: The Horus Heresy, a digital game coming soon from Nomad Games Ltd.

The Game is Talisman: The Horus Heresy and is a digital board game based on the Talisman rule system and set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, during the cataclysmic events of the Horus Heresy.

Up to four players will be able to take control of one or more of the galaxy’s greatest heroes or most notorious villains. Taking the side of either traitor or loyalist, these Warlords will form vast companies of Space Marines, battalions of tanks and battlefleets of Spacecraft. They are the most powerful beings in the Galaxy and their followers are legion.

The teaser video shows brief glimpses at various components that will appear in the game.  More images can be found on the product page, linked above.  If you’re a fan of Talisman or the Warhammer 40,000 universe, this game should be on your list to investigate.  Expect to see it release some time next month for PC and Mac.

hearthstone cards

I’ve dabble a bit into Hearthstone from time to time. I probably have one of the worst win to loss ratios in the game, but I still enjoy playing. If, like me, you’ve ever found yourself wondering what it would be like to have a physical copy of Hearthstone then wonder no more!

Thomas Price over at Games In Asia gets a hands on copy of Hearthstone, straight from China. It’s not often that I say this but some games are better left in the digital realm and should never see the physical light of day.

You be the judge. You can read more about China’s Hearthstone Clone here.

 

Thanks for reading!
