Rocketmen: Battle of Titans Releases!
December 28, 2005 (SEATTLE) — WizKids Inc., creators of the
runaway hit games Pirates of the Spanish Main and HeroClix,
are proud to announce the release of Rocketmen: Battle of
Titans, the first expansion for the Rocketmen Constructible
Strategy Game (CSG!)
“Battle of Titans is a great expansion for the Rocketmen
universe,” said Jordan Weisman, CEO of WizKids Inc. “It
captures all the fun, old-fashioned flavor of the first,
with enough drama and tongue-in-cheek fun to please all
fans.” Rocketmen Battle of Titans moves the battle for the
future to the middle of the solar system, introducing the
grays of Io, a strong – and strong-armed – miner’s union;
the winged Saturnians, a noble warrior race; and the humans
of Ganymede, the birthplace of humanity and recent allies of
the Legion of Terra.
Rocketmen: Battle of Titans is a stand-alone expansion;
everything one person needs to fight for the future comes in
a single game pack, including rules, dice, ships, crew, and
an asteroid card. Also included is a scenario for fighting
among the tentacles of the Jovian Fuel Jellies – massive
floating creatures mined as the source of rocket fuel!

Animated lessons in Japanese culture
Students credit 'anime' for their interest in Japan.
He has wide eyes like most anime characters. He has long,
white hair and pointy ears on his head because he is half
dog demon and half human. He is 150 years old but looks 17,
and he carries a sword similar to that of a samurai.
His name is Inuyasha, and he is sophomore Sarah Vennell's
favorite anime character. "Anime" is Japan's signature style
of animation, marked by its sharp color contrasts, dynamic
characters and action-packed plots.
Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
Old school + new = Perfection
I always loved RPG games and seeing this game, which had the
turn based battle system, I really had doubts about this
one. So I bought it.....
The story is very original. A mysterious mage comes along
and steals a family's secret treasure and that family and
its kingdom is devoured in darkness and covered in thorns,
followed along by transforming into hideous creatures. It
sounds like a fairy tale but the game goes along with it
very well and it never gets off track. To tell you the
truth, DQ8 is like a fairy tale, since the world is so vivid
and the story, and the charcaters are so lovable.
