It's the first event at the Night's Watch olympics.
Well, it's bound to happen at least once every week: I missed a release in Wednesday night's Out Tonight post. It wasn't entirely my fault, it's just that I was lazy and ended up taking a nap...

Can you imagine a diagram like this in a board game nowadays?
Titan is one of those old-school board games that you hear about but, until recently, nobody played. It was originally released back in 1980, but its most recognized version, from Avalon Hill, came out in 1982...

Laying track and taking names
Just off the top of my head, there are four big board games set to arrive on tablets before 2015 ends. The first of those is 7 Wonders which I've seen in action at two separate Gen Cons and yet remains unreleased...
