Prepare to see Pokémon as you’ve never seen them before – through the eyes of someone who has genuinely never seen a Pokémon before.
A couple of days ago, Reddit user netwoodle offered his arty services in the ICanDrawThat subReddit. “I know next to nothing about Pokemon, he said, “but that won’t stop me from doodling one for you.” In other words, he based his creations on name alone.

Fantasy Flight Games released the original Doom board game back in 2004, and now they’re back with a redesigned version based on the Bethesda reboot that came out this year:

Every mission presents a specialized map, unique rules, various items for retrieval, and objectives for both invaders and marines. Whichever role each player takes, they will have to carefully plan every move in order to achieve their given objective. Descend into the hellish landscape of Doom to join the epic struggle between demon and marine.
The game is available for pre-order now with shipping slated for November 2016.
