Osprey Publishing’s awesome new Monopoly set

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

This is the Osprey Monopoly you have heard about complete with description. (Now if they’d just do a version of Risk or Stratego.)

For nearly the last two years, we’ve kept the development of Osprey Monopoly a closely guarded secret, but we just can’t contain the excitement any longer!

Coming later this year, we’ll be releasing a limited-edition run of 1,000 sets. Along with the our exclusive Osprey board, featuring some of our greatest books, you also get our special decks of ‘Chance’ and ‘Ammo Chest’ cards, plastic bunker and fortress pieces to fortify your properties, and a set of our metal game tokens (there’s no hat, but there is a Humvee!).

While the game mostly follows the traditional Monopoly rules of moving around the board, buying properties and building on them, we have included a few special rules that make for a slightly more ‘explosive’ game. But I don’t want to give too much away.

Keep your eye on the blog for a chance to pre-order this limited-edition set, and be the envy of all your friends.

Epic Everywhere Camouflage Pattern

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

Better Camo has released a new pattern of camouflage that is guaranteed to replace all of their previous patterns; in fact, it will probably replace everyone else’s camouflage. They say it’s ‘one new pattern to rule them all.’ (Not sure if it will find them or in the darkness bind them.) The ECP Everywhere Camouflage Pattern is guaranteed to work everywhere. There will be no need for multiple cammie patterns in gear and uniforms henceforth, no matter what the operational environment.

Rumor has it USSOCOM, JSOC and Ninja Force 17 are all looking at this pattern. One thing is for sure; we have never had a camo pattern like this available before.

We will soon be publishing T&E results by Magnum Tuggs and Airborne Willie. Stand by.
