Cosmic Encounter Duel Coming Soon From Fantasy Flight

Fantasy Flight Games has announced Cosmic Encounter Duel , a new standalone, two player game set in the same universe as the classic board game Cosmic Encounter . In Cosmic Encounter Duel , two new alien species have been selected by the Cosmic Citizenship Council to join the international community - the problem being is the only one filing form is available (the other probably got misplaced in a filing cabinet stored inside a disused lavatory with a sign on it saying 'Beware the leopad').

AEG announces Mariposas by Elizabeth Hargrave

“Every spring, millions of monarch butterflies leave Mexico to spread out across eastern North America. Every fall, millions fly back to Mexico. However, no single butterfly ever makes the round trip.”

Elizabeth Hargrave proved herself a designer to watch when her first game, Wingspan , broke records and won the Spiel des Jahres Kennerspiel award last year. Her second game, Tussie-Mussie , although inherently different in every way (the game only contains 18 cards), is still award winning, highly regarded, and continues to make waves.

Fantasy Flight Interactive to close it's doors

Companies come and companies go, but even with that reality it's sometimes surprising when they do go. That is what everyone was feeling when it was announced that Fantasy Flight Interactive, the digital game arm of Fantasy Flight Games, will be closing it's doors next month. Not much has been said as to why the decision was made, but I imagine it was just that expectations weren't met for the company to continue having them. We wish all the best to the employees who are now looking at a pink slip, and pray that they will...
