I never paid much attention to the odd, square-headed figurines known as Funko, despite their incredible popularity and breadth of licenses. They couldn’t be scanned into their own video game series like Skylanders, nor unlock various Nintendo features as with Amiibo. Plop them into a series of tactical strategy board games, however, and you have my attention.

With intuitive rules, multiple game modes, and asymmetrical figures, the Funkoverse Strategy Games are a refreshing blend of family-friendly content with satisfying tactical gameplay.

Typically when I think of possession I think of ghosts and demons and horror movies – or perhaps a villain’s attempt to bind an evil creature to their will. Mark of the Vestige is all about consensual possession, summoning up an otherworldly entity and forming a contract to gain their powers.

With clear rules, excellent writing, thematic art, and dozens of options, Mark of the Vestige is one of the most impressive sourcebooks I’ve seen on the DMs Guild.

The only thing I know about Mordenkainen is that he’s a powerful wizard, a bit of a nutter, and has his own sprawling mega-dungeon complex under Waterdeep.

(Editor’s Note: Foolish Eric confused Mordenkainen with Halaster. Our deepest apologies to both wizards).

It makes perfect sense that the mage mage would also have a vault of magical items. Mordenkainen’s Tome of Marvelous Magic includes 200 wondrous magic items, and you won’t find a single +1 sword among them.
