Welcome to the Weekly Wrap-Up, where we highlight some of the articles and videos that have gone up over the past week that you might have missed!

Becca Captures Beasts in Fantastic Beasts Perilous Pursuit

Copies of this cooperative dice-drafting game hit our tables for How to Play and Game the Game episodes, as well as an editorial overview.  As I put it in the aforementioned overview, “Fantastic Beasts Perilous Pursuit is set in the prequel Potterverse of protagonist Newt Scamander and captures the experience of the movie Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. Focusing on grounding the game in-universe, incorporating game design mechanics that are familiar but compiled in a bespoke manner, and finding the elements that delight fans within a game well-rooted in the fandom has become a winning approach for the publisher, and in this game, USAopoly executed that formula to a tee.”

As contributor Rob Wieland put tells us, “Friends, family, colleagues, and fans have spent the weekend mourning the passing of Greg Stafford on October 11th, 2018. Stafford founded Chaosium Inc. in 1975, making it one of the oldest roleplaying game publishers still in existence.” We compiled a list of games by Greg to celebrate his legacy in the roleplaying games genre and the tabletop industry.

“Role-playing games have played a big part in the lives of both The Wednesday Club hosts and this week’s guests, and when the love of RPGs combines with comic books, magic almost always happens. Dungeons & Dragons has had a number of officially licensed comic books in years past, along with series currently running like Rick and Morty Vs. Dungeons & Dragons and Evil at Baldur’s Gate.” Contributor Kelly Knox compiles the insight provided by The Wednesday Club’s hosts in her recap of last week’s episode.
