Get ready for infectious fun as IDW Games is releasing Amoeba, a tile-laying game by HG Game Worx Studio! Amoeba is a unique tile-laying game for two to four players in which players draw and place tiles in order to build the biggest Amoebas. Set to release this summer, Amoeba will certainly spread the fun all over your gaming table!
ROCK OUT WITH THE SUPER LIMITED PUNK MAMBO #1 ASHCAN02/21/19 @ 9:24 am EST
“Amoeba is the type of game that really gets under your skin!” says Jerry Bennington, IDW Publishing’s VP of New Product Development, “Heidi and Greg Preslicka created a timeless, evergreen design and the colorful, quirky art by Sebastian Koziner and Greg Preslicka make the game ooze right off the table. This is the type of game we see taking over the minds of gamers of all ages for a long time."
Amoeba sees players placing tiles to a shared board connecting edges to form different-sized amoebas. The goal of the game is to capture as many amoeba segments as possible by placing Nuclei markers on them. The twist to the game is players may use tiles from their hand to split completed Amoebas and hurt their opponents' scores. This simple wrinkle adds wonderful tension and endless replayability to a game that can be learned in minutes but stays with you for so much longer.
Look for Amoeba to hit stores in May 2019.

Will Hulkamania run TOO wild in a new generation and threaten Ragnarok?
If you don't like that mix of pro wrestling and Norse mythology, get this: THR
reports that Thor
's Chris Hemsworth is set to portray wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan (born Terry Gene Bollea) in a biopic that reunites Todd Phillips with Scott Silver, the respective director and writer of the upcoming DC Comics movie The Joker.
John Pollono (Stronger

Deals for the Hogan project are in the midst of closing with Netflix. Producing will be Michael Sugar, the Academy Award winner behind Spotlight
, who will produce via his Netflix-based Sugar23, and Phillips and Bradley Cooper, who will produce via their banner Joint Effort. Also producing will be Hemsworth and Eric Bischoff.
One of the biggest names in wrestling of all time, Hogan was a fixture on TV sets in 1980s America as part of the World Wrestling Federation who subsequently parlayed his championships-winning leg drops and star power into forays into movies and television, endorsements and video games.
The deal, which took months to put together, will include life rights, with Bollea acting as a consultant on the movie as well as executive producer.

EGON MEETS ENERGON IN TRANSFORMERS / GHOSTBUSTERS COMIC BOOK SERIES FROM IDW PUBLISHING02/20/19 @ 3:37 pm EST
Writer and illustrator Matt Wagner once described his great comics opus Mage as an “allegorical autobiography” in which the hero, Kevin Matchstick, is a stand-in for the author, and “[a]ll the other characters he encounters and situations he endures are metaphors from my own life... told through the lens of a fantasy adventure.”
Some 35 years after launching the series, with February 27th’s issue #15, the third and final volume of the trilogy, Mage: The Hero Denied, indeed ends.
Dynamic Forces caught up with Wagner and asked about these past 35 years with his comic book alter ego, and what it will be like to see the saga end.
