We have added more pre-orders to the shop. Three highlights are:
All three will get released at Essen and should arrive here sometime in November.
In the last few days, we have added a lot of new pre-orders. Here are my highlights:
All these games will be available for sale at Essen, so hopefully, we will have them in stock shortly after the end of the show.
We are adding more pre-orders every day at the moment, our backlog with interesting Essen games is still quite long. So please keep checking out our Essen section on the shop website, there is more to come 🙂
The new releases for this week have been confirmed and are now online and available to order.
On Tuesday/Wednesday the following games are arriving
Thursday’s releases are:
And finally on Friday, we will get our hands on:
As always you can find all the new releases (and more pre-orders for the rest of the month) here.
We have received a new delivery from Germany with two new games and a restock:
You can find those three games and more new releases here.
Today Legend of the Five Rings, the newest LCG from FFG, has been released:
Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game is a Living Card Game set in the world of Rokugan, the original setting for the Legend of the Five Rings collectible card game. To play a Living Card Game, players create individual decks of cards from a base game with a fixed set of cards; they can then add supplemental card packs to this game world, with each pack also having a fixed set of cards, in order to vary their game experience.
September is the month between the two biggest board game shows: The UK sees some of the GenCon releases arriving and at the same time the pre-orders for Essen releases start to go online.
All of the games in the Top 5 Sales have been presented at GenCon and were available in the UK shortly after the show.
1) Terraforming Mars: Hellas & Elysium
2) Wasteland Express Delivery Service
3) Whitehall Mystery
5) This War of Mine
Unfortunately quite a few games have been delayed this year, because the trend goes more and more to a US release in August at GenCon and a Europe release in October at Essen. This is not an evil plot against European board game geeks, but more a result of cost savings because this way you can split your stock and delivery part of it directly to GenCon and afterwards to US distributors and part of it goes a bit later to Essen and from there to European distributors. Which makes perfect sense, especially for smaller publisher.
And here are the Top 5 Pre-Orders which are dominated by the first big hitters we added to our Essen section:
I would like to give you a short overview what to expect this week:
This is not all, later this week we are expecting:
