We are getting so much awesome news that if we don't post multiple times a day, we would never get it all out there. Why not just grab a bunch of the best articles and toss them together into a massive news update?

HeroClix Online
HeroClix Online is set to debut this late spring or early summer and will set out to emulate the HeroClix tabletop miniatures game but in a computerized version. The game will be created by Icarus Studios LLC, who is based out of North Carolina. According to ICv2, WizKids' Lax Chandra informed them that it will be modeled off of the Magic: The Gathering Online with store based purchases.


No Retreat! Solitaire Announced
Victory Point Games has announced a third expansion kit to No Retreat! 1: Russia. In this expansion by designer Carl Paradis, the player will play both opposing forces with fidelity with added twists, including a Sudden Death victory that can turn what would be a sure fire victory into utter defeat. The expansion will contain several new Event Cards and new markers to add new challenges and experiences. This expansion is not a stand alone and does require No Retreat! 1: Russia or the soon to be released GMT edition of No Retreat!. Check out the Victory Point Games website for more details.
