NYCC 2015: Julie Kerwin discusses “I Am Elemental” Action Figures

NerdNewsToday spoke with Julie Kerwin, the “creative superpower” behind IAmElemental’s action figures during NYCC 2015. Kerwin created her line of all-female action figures with the intent of giving young girls an articulated action-based line of figures to let them create their own narratives with a different type of toy. The figures are based on the elements of what makes a superhero or heroine, and Julie explains why these toys are important for both girls and boys to play with. She also discusses the future of the line, which looks ahead towards six-inch figures!

NYCC 2015: “Ghostbusters: The Board Game” Preview & Gameplay

At NYCC 2015, Mataio Wilson of Cryptozoic takes the mic to give us a hands-on look of their upcoming “Ghostbusters: The Board Game”. In part one of this two-part video, we learn the basics of what makes this game work and everything you need to know about the pieces, characters, and general gameplay.

In part two of this video, Mataio shows us an in-depth demo of how to play the game, as well as combat against ghosts and gates. This game will be available very soon from select vendors, and I already backed the kickstarter so expect an in-depth review once it comes in the mail! From my time playing it at the con with a group of strangers, the game was pretty easy to understand and within a few turns, I felt I had a solid understanding of the basic elements of gameplay. It’s intuitive and accessible for a board game noob like myself, and I look forward to playing this much more in the near future.
