Anima Tactics and Heroscape

It’s been over a week on the blogging. No real excuses except that things have been very busy around here! I’ve also been thinking a lot about the next steps for Roll2Play. Improving the blogging and You Tube for sure! Now that we hooked up with Clan of the Fanboys, we will have more videos to share from them. They interviewed us and are a lot of fun. We sent them some games to try out for FREE! I will also be investing in the new iPhone. This will make creating videos on the spot quick and easy to upload to YouTube. I am also working on how to add a news fee or RSS to the site along with a link to the blogging. It’s all been part of the plan, but I have a lot of learning to do, technical learning.

Roll2play is definitely going to expand our product line in the next two months to include miniature gaming. We are starting with Anima Tactics and Heroscape. These games are fairly new to the miniature gaming industry and are quickly becoming high demand. I got to meet a rep from Anima Tactics and he taught me how to play. It was a lot of fun. You can place with as little as three heroes or build an army for a more epic game play. The stats are all on the character’s card. That means no memorization. He also recommended what packs and heroes to start with. My partner, Becky, and I wanted to learn how to play Heroscape recently. We did this by joining a tournament and checking out how to play Heroscape videos. We had a blast!! Everyone was so welcoming and fun loving. We even won a prize! Then again they did have enough prizes for everyone. No one left empty handed. We are definitely going to enter more tournaments! We will keep you posted as to win the products are in stock and on the site.

Last but not least, I wanted to let everyone know that the ever so popular Munchkin games by Steve Jackson Games are getting updated to include multiple colors. That will be so cool!! I can’t wait to check this out. I have some of the cards left that will now be considered out of print. *hint* Buy now as these will go fast. As soon as the distributor has the new updated cards in stock, I will replenish the Munchkin games. I expect that to be in the next month.

Coming up events:

*End of Summer Reading club event at Lake Cities Library on July 29th. We will be demo-ing games. We will also have games for sale to help fund raise for the library.
*Gen Con August 4th – 8th to scope out new games. I will be getting my gaming on with my brother. We are serious gamers and are looking forward to being with other serious gamers.
*Dallas Comic Con August 28th and 29th as a vendor. Come check out the con and see us in the dealer’s room.
