It’s been a while since Renegade has added anything to Heroes of the Grid, its Power Rangers deck-building game. But the brand turns 30 this year and has a LOT in its library that has yet to be mined, so…here come two new expansion with characters from the show’s later seasons.
90s kids everywhere received horrible news over the weekend with the discovery that actor Jason David Frank, eighth degree black belt in karate and star of the original Power Rangers series, had passed. He was 49.
Last year Renegade Studios introduced the Power Rangers Deck Building Game, a multiplayer experience where participants assume the roles of popular PR heroes and villains and do battle via the slapping of cardboard. The deck has grown in size since the core set was released…an expansion based on the Zeo season came soon after, and now Renegade is preparing to release the second expansion, based on Power Rangers RPM.
Renegade Game Studios has announced four new add-ons for the Power Rangers Roleplaying Game it introduced last year.
Putting the worlds of Godzilla and Power Rangers together is such an obvious idea that we find it hard to believe no one’s ever done it before. Both come from Japan, both involve giant monsters wrecking buildings, both are about larger-than-life battles and explosions. IDW will finally marry these two concepts in Godzilla Vs. Power Rangers, their upcoming five-issue miniseries.
Earlier this year, Renegade Game Studios released three expansions for their Power Rangers: Heroes of the Grid tabletop game. Now they’ve combined those expansions, along with the main game and some brand-new content, into a gigantic Megazord subtitled Rangers United.

Renegade Studios, publishers of such tabletop pursuits as Altered Carbon, Vampire The Masquerade and Atheneum, have set their sights on sentai with the announcement of an upcoming Power Rangers deck-building game.

Deadline broke the news this afternoon that the Power Rangers franchise has just been purchased by Hasbro. The deal also included some lesser 80s properties like My Pet Monster and Popples, but Power Rangers was the big get.
Power Rangers has been a part of our culture for just about 25 years. And two years ago roughly, Boom! Studios decided to start a new comic series featuring the original Mighty Morphin team. Fast forward two years, and it’s one of the most popular comics on the market today. And to celebrate the 25th issue, the writing team of Kyle Higgins and Ryan Parrott (who writes the second PR series GO GO Power Rangers) have come together to make Power Rangers: Shattered Grid.
The future of the Power Rangers movie franchise is still very much in the air right now. The film did decently in the box office, and did make a profit, but it was hardly enough to justify a full on sequel, let alone the five that Saban had planned. The home DVD sales were promising though, as Power Rangers was #1 in the nation when it came out. Still, it’s uncertain what will happen next. Interestingly enough though, we’re still hearing about things that almost made it into the film, including a bloody fighting between Zack and Jason.
