Colt Express

July 11th, 1899: 10 A.M. The Union Pacific Express leaves Folsom, New Mexico, with forty-seven passengers. Yet after mere minutes, the sound of rapid footsteps is heard from overhead, followed by the jarring staccato of gunfire. Heavily armed bandits have boarded the train and begun robbing honest citizens of their wallets and jewelry! Though the bandits attacked together, greed will quickly triumph over fragile alliances in the presence of so much money. After all, only one bandit leaves the train richer than all his former allies…

Colt Express is a board game of schemin’ and stealin’ for two to six bandits aboard a three-dimensional steam train. You play as one of a group of ruthless bandits, dead set on grabbing as much loot and shooting as many bullets at your former companions as possible. Every round, you must determine what actions your bandit will take, whether you’re grabbing loot, firing bullets, punching another bandit, or running along the roof of the train car. If you can predict what your opponents will do, you can respond to their actions and stay one step ahead, but if you’re knocked off-track, you’ll find your shots flying wide. Only the richest bandit can claim victory on the Colt Express when the train pulls into the station!

This weekend we will be getting in copies of this great game along with a few special free give aways. We will be arranging a time for people to come along and try this game for themselves. (More details to follow soon)

Pokemon Go - Shiny!!!

There are only two available for now: the gold-coloured Shiny Magikarp, and it's evolution, the Shiny red Gyarados.

Players will likely recognise the Gyarados in particular from their time with Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal in the main series: red Gyarados is the first canonically recognised Shiny Pokémon, appearing in the anime series as well as at the Lake of Rage in a scripted encounter within the games.


Rumours of the Shiny Magikarp's existance began to float about on the internet last night, after the latest update went live under the guise of a Water Festival event.

There's also a snazzy Magikarp hat for your avatar, which is free to wear and makes you look rather dapper or something less complementary...


The Water theme ties in with World Water Day on 22nd March (thanks commenters!) - but it seems as though this was also something of a way to sneak the two Water-type Shinies into the game at the same time, for the die-hard fans to discover.

The Water Festival itself will bring an increased number of Water-type Pokémon to the game for a limited period, finishing on 29th March, and working in a similar way to the Valentine's Day and Halloween events that went by over the past few months.

Split cards in Amonkhet?

Is this the new split card format for Amonkhet? It has been leaked in the last couple of days and looks like it may be legitimate. If so what are you thoughts?

Dusk  - 2ww
Destroy all creatures with power greater or equal to 3
Dawn  - 3ww
Consequence - Cast this spell only from your graveyard, then exile it.

Return all creature cards with power less than or equal to 2 from your graveyard to your hand.

The design of the card maybe so that when it goes to the graveyard you can place it on its side so that the graveyard cast is still visible.
