Breaking! Mondo: Jurassic Park - The Chaos Gene Miniature Board Game!

Mondo: We are celebrating 25 years of dinosaur chaos with the anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s unequalled Jurassic Park and Mondo Games is excited to unveil our next board game, “Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene.” Movie fans and board game enthusiasts can expect exciting gameplay and gorgeous artwork, featuring the immensely talented artist Matthew Woodson. The game will be available online on our website and in stores everywhere this Fall. We'll have the box top on display at Mondo’s booth at San Diego Comic-Con (#435), and attendees will have the opportunity to get a special Jurassic Park patch when visiting the booth. 

Taking an asymmetrical approach to the game’s playable characters and factions, “Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene” is a 2-4 player adventure of varying strategies, objectives, and perspectives. While exploration of the park is at the core of each player’s motivation, the means by which separate factions achieve their goals couldn’t be more different. Through a scenario-based system, the game becomes a truly chaotic mix of modern humans and prehistoric beasts. 

“Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene” is a 2 to 4 player asymmetrical miniatures board game, for age 14 and up. Choose your faction from the following: InGen, Park Visitors, Raptors or the T. rex. Find items needed for your faction, attack or avoid other dinosaurs, gain experience and customize your faction. With several scenarios and modular environment tiles for players to explore, each faction has unique objectives to complete in an effort to win the game!

If you'll be at San Diego Comic-Con come find us - we'll be giving away Jurassic Park patches! These patches are free to Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene newsletter subscribers. Sign up at Limited number available at the Mondo Booth (#435). A different faction will be available each day:

Thursday: InGen Patch
Friday: Raptors Patch
Saturday: Visitors Patch
Sunday: T. Rex Patch

Breaking! Games Workshop: Lord of The Rings - The Battle of Pelennor Fields Starter Set Previewed

Games Workshop: It’s been an incredible seventeen years since the first The Lord of the Rings™ Strategy Battle Game releases, and six since The Hobbit™ was added to the range. And now, there’s an entirely new edition coming, with a brand-new boxed game! The Battle of Pelennor Fields will be available in August and will most sadly contain almost no new miniatures ...

Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game: The Battle of Pelennor Fields

Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game: The Battle of Pelennor Fields is a new boxed game based on the climactic battle from The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King™. Inside it, you’ll find plastic models for two armies and a brand new edition of the game rules. The Middle-earth team are remaining tight-lipped on the details, but they’ve been hard at work on updating the game while keeping everything you love about the current edition.

The armies feature a whopping 84 Citadel miniatures – including a brand new version of Theoden, King of Rohan on foot and horseback. This model is the first in what will be a range of new plastic characters for the setting. The model is incredibly detailed – a faithful depiction of the king, during his glorious last charge.

Alongside Theoden ride 12 Riders and Warriors of Rohan and 20 Warriors of the Dead. Against them stand no fewer than 36 Morannon Orcs, a Mordor Troll and The Witch-king of Angmar atop a Fell Beast. Also included, are all the various gaming accessories you’d expect – dice, range-rulers (themed to each army), tokens, and most importantly of all – a brand new 208-page edition of the rules.

Beyond the boxed game…

Alongside the boxed game will be a book called called Armies of The Lord Of The Rings. This tome will be your guide to the various forces of Good and Evil during the War of the Ring. On top of that, there are plenty of new Forge World kits on the way to expand your Middle-earth armies, starting with some fabulous new models of Knights of Dol Amroth and some Gondorian and Orc Heroes.
