It's freezing outside, but there's good news – you can now snuggle into a warm chair and read the latest issue of Tabletop Gaming, out today (February 28th).

You won't want to miss the March magazine for a number of reasons, starting with the free booster pack for collectible dice game Star Wars: Destiny included with every physical copy. The booster is worth a whopping £2.99 and includes five cards (including one rare or legendary) plus a premium die to add to your collection.

Inside the mag, you’ll be able to read our whopping exclusive interview with Blood Rage mastermind Eric Lang about his next legendary strategy game, the incredible Rising Sun. He tells us why he finds sticking to the facts boring, how his childhood love of myths and monsters inspired its epic take on feudal Japan, and what's next in his incredible series of strategy titles.

As Pandemic turns 10 years old, series creator Matt Leacock and some of the designers, artists and publishers that helped bring the groundbreaking co-op hit to life tell us how a simple idea became one of the biggest board games of all time.

The list of amazing designers doesn't stop there. In a rare interview, Francis Tresham, designer of innovative empire-building classic Civilization, tells us about turning his fascination with history into a brand new genre and the lasting legacy of the game almost four decades on.

The next instalment in our ever-popular How We Made feature meets up with Splendor designer Marc André to peek behind-the-scenes of his chip-collecting gem, discovering how his childhood hatred of chess and love of maths inspired one of the most absorbing card games in years.

There’s plenty more to discover inside March’s issue of Tabletop Gaming, from tips on taking a board game holiday and a look at Legend of Korra sports game Pro-Bending Arena to new columns diving deep into indie games you might’ve missed and the history of the tabletop’s most influential mechanics. Not to mention our regular buffet of hobby tips, designer interviews and more.

Of course, there’s no shortage of reviews, either – this month we give our definitive thoughts on Dinosaur Island, Escape the Dark Castle, Altiplano, Transatlantic, Favelas, Dungeon Draft, Kitchen Rush, Elite: Dangerous RPG, Empires, Nusfjord, Time Barons, Coaster Park and many, many more.

Tabletop Gaming March is available in shops today – find it in Tesco, Sainsbury’s, WHSmith and hobby stores across the UK, as well as on phones, tablets and PC with our digital edition. Of course, if you'd rather not venture out into the snow why not subscribe and get it delivered straight through your door?
