Want to spruce up your tabletop games? Sure, there are official D&D miniatures you could buy.

FFG's X-Wing and Wizkid's own Star Trek: Attack Wing have seen a pretty major revitalisation of dogfighting miniature games in recent years, but now the esteemed tabletop franchise D&D is getting a piece of the action, replacing spaceships with, err... Dragons. I mean, what did you expect?
Even the best laid Dungeon Master plans can go awry, leaving you to trawl through books and scribbled notes in a panic to find something for your players to do while they blankly stare at your DM Screen - so why not take a hint from video games and throw up a quick Loading Screen to distract them?
Magic's spinning itself off from card-based tabletop shenanigans to board game ones with a new strategy game from Wizards of the Coast - and while it's pretty weird to see a Magic game without cards, it looks rather interesting.
