Sidereal Confluence will also make a comeback, but stock is very limited and already sold out to pre-orders. We are hoping to get more copies in before the end of the month, but have no confirmation for a second delivery yet.
Fallout- New California is the first expansion for the Fallout board game. FFG has now posted the first preview, looking closer at the five new survivors it will add to the game:
The New California expansion introduces five new survivors to Fallout: The Board Game and, before anything else, it’s important to get to know who you might be. Each of these plucky newcomers has their own perspective on life in the wasteland, and today, we’re going to take a closer look at just what makes each of them tick!
Pandoria is the new game from Irongames and will get released at Essen later this month.
In the “gamer’s game” Pandoria, players discover this new land by placing tiles, and they claim its territory and resources by placing their people. When a type of terrain is completely surrounded by other terrain, every worker on the borders of that terrain gains its resources. Although more than one civilization will usually benefit, each player tries to gain more than the others. Mining gold gives you income to buy cards that have two options: buildings and spells. Acquiring wood allows you to build that side of the card for permanent advantages, while mining crystals gives you the power to use the card for its one-time spell instead. Excess resources can be converted into prestige Points, and some buildings can generate more. When the new land has been fully explored (all tiles have been placed), the player with the most prestige is declared the most powerful nation of Pandoria and wins the game!
Eric Martin (BGG News) has already played a prototype of the game and has published a preview video about the game.
Joel from the Devon Dice podcast had the chance to play Pandemic: Fall of Rome. He filmed the demo and has now posted the video which includes the rules explanation, a look at the gameplay and his thoughts about the game.
September was the first month after Gencon and after long summer holidays the return to normality. Here are the Top 5 of the month:
Top 5 Pre-Orders
1) Teotihuacan City of Gods
2) Betrayal Legacy
4) Caverna: The Forgotten Folk
5) Deutscher Spielepreis 2018 – Goodie Box
Four out of the five games/expansion on the Top 5 are Essen announcement, a sign of what will happening in the next couple of months. Teotihuacan City of Gods is our top game the second month in a row and is just shows how popular this sequel to Tzolkin is in the gaming community.
Top 5 Sales
1) Great Western Trail: Rails to the North (German Edition)
2) Carpe Diem
3) War Chest
4) Downforce: Danger Circuit
5) Seal Team Flix
The GWT expansion was our top seller during September and also at the TableTop Gaming Live in London. Early feedback from our customers is good, most of them don’t want to play the game without the expansion any more. Carpe Diem was my favourite game last month: a Feld game that was light and plays in under an hour – perfect for my gaming needs at the moment. We got have sold more copies of Seal Team Flix, unfortunately, the stock was very limited.
Legendary Encounters: X – Files has been released in the US in September.
Legendary® Encounters: The X-Files™ Deck Building Game is a card game themed around the award-winning television series The X-files™. Players will take on the roles of their favorite truth-seeking special agents like Mulder, Scully or Skinner and work together to expose and overcome a variety of grand conspiracies. Mystery and subterfuge fog the way forward as players, encouraged by beliefs and encountered by doubts, work to reveal and defeat an unrelenting stream of malevolent agents and paranormal entities.
Unfortunately no sign or announcement yet for the UK. At least we can check out a video review from Dice and Dragons to see if it is worth the wait:
