Warhammer 40K Necrons: Szarekh The Silent King available at Gnome GamesNecrons: Szarekh The Silent King

The big bad boy is back! Your opponent will be kneeling before the sheer majesty of the Silent King. Szarekh.  The King is accompanied by two Phaerons – newly elected members of the Triarch, who bear their relics of office. Behind the Silent King writhes the bound essence of a C’tan Shard known only as the Enchained, whose otherworldly powers fuel the dais and the incandescent annihilator beams that erupt forth from the Triarchal Menhirs that flank Szarekh at all times.  Proeorder yours before October 6th at Gnome Games and you’ll save more than enough for your set of Data Cards!

That’s what the datacards are for, and with the new rules you’ll get a LOT of satisfaction playing with them!

Car Wars – Sixth Edition is coming to your table through Gnome Games!

Car Wars 6th Edition at Gnome Games

Gnome Games is backing Car Wars Sixth Edition!

Steve Jackson Games is bringing back Car Wars Sixth Edition and you can reserve your copy at Gnome Games or right here today!

North America, A.D. 2069. It’s a new American frontier. The collapse of the U.S. government plunged the country back into the good old days — days of wilderness lawlessness, banditry, regional dictators, and of the men and women who combat them. Modern-day knights and gunslingers are in demand; but the automobile has replaced the horse, and the machine-gun and recoilless rifle have made the sword and Winchester obsolete.

Welcome to 2069. It’s a rough world, but it’s the only one around . . .

Car Wars Sixth Edition

Put the pedal to the metal and fire up the weapons systems – Car Wars Sixth Edition is going to be a big one! Gnome Games is backing the new, faster, streamlined edition of Car Wars, which will include detailed “hot wheels sized” plastic car models. So, Gaslands players, you are going to want to look at this as well! The new Car Wars game was designed to put you in the driver’s seat and into the action within moments of opening the game box. Hit the link and just see what’s all been included already!

Here’s what you need to know about reserving a copy of Car Wars 6th Edition through Gnome Games

  • Gnome Games will match the Kickstarter pricing.
  • We may have to factor in some shipping costs, but if so, they will very likely be lower than if you back directly.
  • Gnome Games will get all the “Double Ace” stretch goals.
  • We can you get all the add-ons! We will coordinate this once the Kickstarter fulfillment process starts
  • You don’t need to prepay anything other than a $5 deposit that is fully refundable if Steve Jackson Games doesn’t deliver the Kickstarter.  You will pay the remaining balance plus applicable sales tax when you pick your copy up at any Gnome Games store.
  • If you’d like to back through us or reserve a copy, just stop in any Gnome Games store OR back it right here!
  • Expected arrival is November 2020, but that date may change based on manufacturing. We’ll keep you posted as Steve Jackson Games provides us with details.

Three month storyline event! All players will get 3 of the tournament only X-Men Regenesis single figure boosters. Players will have to choose which X-Man they will side with: Wolverine or Cyclops. This cannot be changed during the 3 month event. (If you pick Wolverine, you will only be able to win prizes associated with Wolverine, the same with Cyclops, so pick carefully!) Players will then have a chance to trade one figure with another player in their event. Players will build a 200-point HeroClix team out of X-Men Regenesis figures. This will be a Swiss-style event using 2×2 maps. The top finishers each month will earn prizes and points toward the Grand Prize.

In Months 2 and 3, players should bring back their X-Men Regenesis figures from the previous months in case they want to use them on their team or trade them away.

  • Prize support depends on which faction you choose: Wolverine Faction – #101 Wolverine, Cyclops Faction – #102 Cyclops.
