The Tiny Epic Games just got tinier. Gamelyn Games announced Ultra Tiny Epic Galaxies, designed by Scott Almes, to bring this game to a size that might actually be able to fit inside your pocket.

The Tiny Epic series has taken the game market by storm by offering a lot of game in a little box with each game feeling very different from one another while maintaining familiarity between each one. Now, Gamelyn Games is trying to shrink the boxes even further.

Ultra Tiny Epic Galaxies will come in a box that is the size of a deck of cards. It will include all 40 of the original cards found in Tiny Epic Galaxies and will still be able to play at a player count of 1-5. This box will also include the mini- expansion, Satellites & Super Weapons. This game will be hitting Kickstarter soon.

Dice Hospital, published by Alley Cat Games, is a the thematic worker placement game that uses dice as patients. Through the currently live Dice Hospital Community Care Kickstarter campaign, the game is getting three modular expansions: City, Maternity, and Investments.

The City expansion modifies the intake phase of the game through the use of a 3 x 3 grid of city tiles where players will send their paramedic meeple to collect patients. The City expansion also introduces a helicopter (get to the choppa!) that can be used to collect patients from anywhere on the grid. Which patient dice each player collects with their ambulance in a round will determine which player gets to use the helicopter in the following round.

The Maternity expansion adds a spatial element to the game, as well as some end-game objectives to target. Your hospital will be able to admit a new type of patient die: mothers. Mother dice will produce baby dice (sometimes twins), and mothers will get sick quickly if they have to share a ward with other types of patients.

The Investments expansion allows you to upgrade and customize your hospital with new types of tiles. Upgraded hospitals will attract more patients, creating a greater opportunity for points as well as a higher burden of care.

The Dice Hospital Community Care campaign runs through July 25th. You can pledge for the retail edition of the expansion content or the the special kickstarter version, which includes an upgraded helicopter figure that can hold dice, components to add a 5th player, and some base game upgrades to tokens and trackers. If you do not have the base game of Dice Hospital, you can pledge for it and the expansion. You also scoop up a variety of other Alley Cat Games products through add-ons. Check out the campaign here.

Succubus Publishing has launched a new Kickstarter project offering entry and additional content for Middara, their massive 1-4 player fantasy dungeon crawl set in an alternate reality Earth.

The core game of Middara features an 80+ hour campaign where you can fully customize characters from the ground up using over 110 different abilities and over 160 different items. The box is packed with 44 miniatures and 36 double-sided map tiles. The narrative in Middara is driven by its 482 page adventure book that can be experienced in its spiral bound form or through an audio app. You can also play single scenarios separate from the main campaign in Crawl Mode.

Combat in Middara is dice-driven utilizing action points. The custom dice include numbers, which you will compare to your target’s defense, as well as symbols that trigger abilities. The different between your attack roll and your target’s defense equates directly to how much damage you do. Enemy cards lay out their abilities and individualized AI. For more on gameplay, check out the Dice Tower’s Testing Tuesday playthrough.

The new content available through the Kickstarter project consists of acts two and three continuing the story from the core game. Each additional act is a 40+ hour campaign adding around 40 new miniatures. They also include more map tiles, character abilities, gear, and Crawl Mode scenarios. If you are still looking for more, the project offers add-ons for new scenarios, alternate enemy cards, and additional miniatures. The project runs through 11:00 am EST on July 24th. The estimated delivery for wave 1 content is May 2020, and for wave 2 is December 2021.
