Con un pò di ritardo, ecco la previews per il mese di Settembre, contenente tutte le novità ludiche per le prossime uscite di questo autunno.

Per il momento, la più casa editrice più "prolifica" è senz'altro la Fantasy Flight Games, con ben 6 giochi nuovi e altri 6 mazzi di carte come "espansioni" per Runebound.
Molte, comunque, le novità da parte di altre case editrici, e per gli amanti dei giochi di miniature, ecco una lista di nuove miniature della Games Workshop.

Importante: l'articolo è completamente in lingua inglese.
