Leading August's issue is the summer’s hottest release – the second edition of massive fantasy RPG Pathfinder, which takes pride of place on our cover. Inside, you’ll find an exclusive interview with lead designer Jason Bulmahn about the difference a decade has made to the game and how it plans to keep up with Dungeons & Dragons.
Also on the cover of the physical mag you’ll find a Guild Ball character card featuring alternative art for Windfinder from the sports miniatures game’s brand new Navigator’s Guild, free for readers and 100% exclusive to Tabletop Gaming. Simply introduce the card into your next match to show off your allegiance to the guild and ensure your team stands out on the pitch.
With the summer heat continuing, there’s no better time to dive into our preview of Western Legends, the Wild West sandbox that lets you rewrite history and make yourself a gunslinging icon. We saddle up with the game’s creators to take a ride through its incredible open-world adventure.
Speaking of the summer, if you’re headed off on holiday this summer, don’t miss our essential tips on which games to pack and how to help your cardboard survive the baking heat or a dip in the pool in our Gamer’s Travel Guide.
