The buzz is building for some of Plaid Hat Games' upcoming releases!

You've been reading our Specter Ops previews, of course. (You have, right???) That game is getting closer on the boat, so there's not much time left to pre-order!

Meanwhile, Zee Garcia of the Dice Tower recently featured two more of our upcoming games, interviewing Plaid Hat Games Lead Game Designer Isaac Vega at the GAMA trade show, a convention for members of the Game Manufacturing Association.

AshesFirst is Ashes, which is aiming for a GenCon release. This 2-4 player customizable game takes place in the world of the Phoenixborn, powerful magic wielders who are fighting to become gods. Each deck is infinitely customizable, and you can also build a pool of the custom dice that come with the game. Six Pheonixborn are included out of the box each with their own deck. With base deck, customized deck and draft deck formats as well, this back-and-forth game is a deep well to explore. Keep your eye out for tons of info on Ashes in the next few months right here at PlaidHatGames.com leading up to its release.

Second is Tail Feathers. Taking place in the Mice and Mystics universe, it's mice and rats. On birds. Fighting each other. We're talking bird miniatures, and mice miniatures on top of them that can be switched in and out, both with their own abilities and skills. Pure awesomeness.

Isaac mentioned playtesting in the video. We are now using the Plaid Hat Corps to source our playtesting, and its been great for everyone involved. If you want a chance to apply for our next playtesting opportunity, make sure you're signed up for the Plaid Hat Corps, and you'll get an e-mail when it happens.
