Daily Illuminator

August 19, 2003: Now Shipping!

Here's what will hit the shelves of your local game store in the very near future. We know you expected to see Munchkin 3: Clerical Errors on this list. So did we. Unfortunately, one of the decks was misprinted. (Because we know you're curious: The printer made a mistake, and several of the cards have the wrong kind of back. This would make the game somewhat weird . . . We could have caught it on the proofs and we didn't, so it's our problem.) The printer is, however, working with us to solve this very expensive goof in much less time than card printing ordinarily takes. So the rest of the August releases will go out normally, with Clerical Errors following when it can.

Okay, that was the bad news. Now the good news: we have some very cool stuff for you.

Strange Synergy
Strange Synergy is built around 100 different Power Cards . . . superpowers, mutations, skills, gadgets. Each warrior starts with three different powers. You choose the combination! Can you create the unbeatable team? Can you win against superior powers?

Developed by Steve Jackson and illustrated by Phil Foglio (Girl Genius, GURPS IOU, XXXenophile), this game is as much fun to watch as it is to play. No two games are the same. How many ways can you make four different teams of three warriors, out of 100 powers? The mind boggles, and the fun never ends!

Boxed game with 112 cards, rules, warrior stand-ups and bases, game map, counters, and one die. Stock #1360, ISBN 1-55634-707-3. $29.95.

Cardboard Heroes Bases (Reprint)

These plastic bases add weight and stability to your Cardboard Heroes figures, and the colors will help distinguish between figures at a glance. Each pack contains 10 bases and is available in one of three colors: Red, Green, and Clear.

Included are some assorted slimes, on Cardboard Heroes Dungeon Floors background . . . cut them out and put them where they'll do the most good!

10 plastic bases. Stock #5104, ISBN 1-55634-500-3. $2.95.

GURPS Uplift 2/e
Of the thousands of races in a galaxy full of aliens, ours is the only one that claims to have evolved on its own, without genetic engineering by a Patron species. With its own new clients -- genetically modified dolphins and chimpanzees -- upstart mankind faces a jealous universe. The ancient Patron clans can't decide whether to enslave the races of Terra . . . or just wipe them out.

The Galactics have wealth, power, and incredible technology. The people of Earth have guts, originality and a handful of allies . . . and they won't give up.

This is the universe created by David Brin for his award-winning "Uplift" series. GURPS Uplift includes complete descriptions of the important alien races, maps and descriptions of the Terragens planets, and rules for creating -- and Uplifting -- new species.

This new edition has been updated to cover the races and developments of the "Uplift Storm" trilogy!

176 pages. Stock #6035, ISBN 1-55634-427-9. $27.95.

Uplift Miniatures
We couldn't do justice to a universe as compelling as GURPS Uplift without stunning miniatures to match. Uplift Miniatures help you bring David Brin's world alive. Sculpted by Richard Kerr, this set includes four assorted uplifted chimps, one Tymbrimi, and one dolphin in his spidery land-walker which can be built as either a civilian or military model.

Boxed set of six 28mm miniatures. Stock #13-0600, ISBN 1-55634-609-3. $24.95.
