Underwater Cities is coming back

Underwater Cities, one of the hottest games from Essen 2018, is finally coming back in stock: We are expecting new stock by the end of next week.

In Underwater Cities, which takes about 30-45 minutes per players, players represent the most powerful brains in the world, brains nominated due to the overpopulation of Earth to establish the best and most liveable underwater areas possible.

But we also have good news for everyone who already owns the first edition of the game: we will get the Upgrade Kit which brings the game up to date with the same delivery. The Upgrade Kit will go online sometime next week and will cost £4.95.

Lots of new games and Die Tavernen are back

Another busy week in regards to new releases: 11 new games/expansions have arrived today. Here a quick look at all the new items:

Lots of shiny new games…

The three Undo games (best described as Time Stories meets EXIT) were our hottest games at the UK Games Expo and are now available for everyone who missed out at the show. Sorcerer is my favourite card game at the moment: I played it at the UK Games Expo and managed to buy one of the demo copies from White Wizard Games. Have a closer look at it if you like Mage Wars!

And not to forget: Die Tavernen im Tiefen Thal is finally back in stock after we received lots of requests in the week after the UK Games Expo.

Roll Dice Gaming in Bristol

If you can’t get enough of Gaming Conventions, here is a new one: Roll Dice Gaming will happen on the 6th & 7th July in Bristol. And the best bit: Meeples’ Corner will be there with a selection of our stock and one or two demo tables to show you some of the new releases we will bring along.

If you want to see who else will be at the event, the exhibitor list is now online. It is not a bad lineup for a first-time event.

Tickets are available to buy online and are £10 for the whole weekend (or £6 for children).

I will open the collection option for orders the week before the event.

Five new Arrivals (12/06/19)

It is new release day and this week we have received five new games/expansions.

Not surprisingly the hottest games were the ones that got released at the show and haven’t been available before like the new KeyForge set or Foothills. Wingspan also flew from the shelves and Wolfgang Warsch dominated the Top 10 with his latest four games.

Dare the Meeple at the UK Games Expo

On Sunday at the UK Games Expo, we were running a “Dare the Meeple” discount offer. Everybody we talked to thought it was a good idea and we had lots of laughs at the checkout counter during the day.

And we even made it into a post-Expo review video (at 2m 40s):

The Romans in stock

The last ever game from the Ragnar Brothers is now in stock. The Romans is the third and last quantum game:

The Romans traces the history of the Roman Empire from its inception as a small Italian Kingdom, through its development and expansion as a Republic and thence to the full-blown Empire that dominated the classical world. Enemies mount challenges throughout the game and ultimately the barbarian invasions drive deep into the Empire with Rome itself as their target.

But this is not just a game of conquest. Senators grapple for power in the buildings of the capital and players will score victory points by developments through the game.
