Great Western Trail: Rails to the North was expected to be available at Gencon. According to Eric Martin (Boardgamegeek News) this is no longer the case:
Adjust your @Gen_Con 2018 shopping list as Great Western Trail: Rails to the North from @eggertspiele won't make it to the show for sale or demo due to production issues. Better perfect than rushed, I says! —WEM pic.twitter.com/gIKzzaGIlF

Our German supplier still lists the expansion as an August release, but I didn’t had the chance to talk to him about this. I will post an update as soon as I know more.
Our shop will close on Monday for our summer break (it will open again on Tuesday, 7th August). We have received our last new releases before the summer break yesterday, all remaining expected releases for this month had to be moved into August.
While the shop is closed we will still receive the usual new releases deliveries every Tuesday. Any game that gets released during our break, will be on hold and the orders will get processed as soon as we are back. We will post an update on the day we are back to let you all know which games these are.
I’m very sorry if this will cause any delays in getting your game(s).
Plaid Hat Games has announced two new games.
Assemble the ultimate team and join the fight in Guardians, a game of super-powered battles for two or four players! The Guardians were once a network of legendary heroes that fought for peace and justice. They were influential in establishing InterGov, the world’s first global government. The Guardians chose to step aside so that InterGov could usher the world into a new age of peace and prosperity. Nearly three decades have passed, and new threats have emerged to challenge the peace these heroes fought for. A new generation of heroes must now rise and fight for the future!
The game will be available in the fourth quarter of 2018.
Plaid Hat Games is proud to announce Neon Gods, the strategy game of futuristic gang warfare set in the far future of, um, 2009. Neon Gods is a story of street gangs set in a kaleidoscopic near future inspired by sci-fi cinema of the 70s and 80s. Start your own (legitimate) businesses and watch them flourish. Recruit the finest disillusioned ne’er-do-wells to hold your territory, and purchase black market resources that’ll give you the edge. Be prepared to fight for what’s yours, because your opponents will muscle in on your territory. And don’t forget the cops, who clearly don’t have anything better to do than harass innocent business owners such as yourself. The world may not think much of you, but in the back alley glow of the neon night, you can be a god.
The game should be available from retailers before the end of the year.

Their newest release is Isidore – School of Magic, designed by Hidde van Dijk. There is not much detail available on the Jumbo website, but they have posted a trailer for the game on Youtube, which explains a bit about the gameplay and shows the components.
FFG has announced Fallout: New California, the first expansion for Fallout.
The New California expansion brings all-new challenges to the irradiated landscape inspired by Bethesda’s blockbuster video game series, inviting you cover even more ground when you return to the four scenarios you experienced in Fallout: The Board Game or enter sunny New California in two brand-new scenarios. While you’re on these adventures, you can visit some of the most memorable locations from throughout the Fallout series, plumbing the depths of The Hole, breaking into the Lost Hills Bunker, or venturing into the imposing Cathedral.
The estimated release date is sometime in the 4th quarter of 2018. As soon as we know the details of the UK release we will add the expansions to our pre-orders.
