Marvel Champions Update

Marvel Champions, the new LCG from FFG, is back in stock. That’s the good news, but the bad news is that the first three expansions have been pushed back to January:

A Barrage of new games

Just when our delivery driver thought he had made it to the weekend, we had another big delivery day.

Lots of shiny new games/expansions waiting for a new home…

And this one was full of big hitters:

But it wasn’t all about new releases, we also received restocks of the following games:

The last three ones on the list are perfect stocking fillers: affordable games with a lot going in a small and compact box.

The Aftermath in the Chocolate Factory

New games galore: another ten new games are now in stock. And that’s not all, there is more coming later this week.

Part 1 of the ten new games

But first we have a look at the new games in stock since yesterday:

Part 2 of the 10 games

Later this week we are expecting Barrage, Masters of Renaissance: Lorenzo Il Magnifico – The Card Game and the highly anticipated Wingspan: European Expansion.

The Magnificent Merchants of Snowdonia

We have three exciting announcements to make:

  • The pre-orders for The Magnificent (winner of the 2019 Essen Geekbuzz) are finally live. ETA for the game is sometime in December.
  • For the end of the week, we are expecting the German edition of Terra Mystica: Merchants of the Seas. The expansion is language-independent, so all you need to play it are the English rules from BGG.
  • And just gone online is the pre-order for the massive Snowdonia: Deluxe Master Set. It should be here by Friday or maybe Monday at the latest.

New shipping service and rates

After five years with Yodel from Monday on we are using a new parcel service. Our parcels will from now get delivered by UK Mail/DHL on a next day service.

This means that we can offer a faster service for every parcel and also should solve the problem that some of our customers had with Yodel. But unfortunately, it means that after five years of nearly unchanged shipping rates, we have to raise the shipping charges and also change our free shipping threshold.

Shipping will be £5.99 for every order below £50, but from £50 and more the shipping charges will go down:

Order TotalShipping charges
< £50 £5.99
£50 to £59.99 £4.99
£60 to £69.99 £3.99
£70 to £79.99 £2.99
£80 to £89.99 £1.99
£90 to £99.99 £0.99
> £100 Free

I know that this is not ideal for most of our customers, especially at this time of the year. But caused by circumstances beyond our control this was the best solution we could find in the short time we had.

We have tested the new service with some of our parcels this week and everything works fine and all parcels so far have been delivered the next day without any complications.

Christmas game needed: Die Hard is here

Are you still looking for a peaceful and relaxing game for Christmas? We maybe have something for you: the Die Hard board game has arrived today.

But it wasn’t the only new arrival for today, here is what else came today:

And Brass: Birmingham and Flamme Rouge: Meteo are both finally back in stock.

More and more new games

We are only three weeks away from the Essen board game show and the number of new games is growing and growing. This week we have already received 14 new games/expansions.

And this is just part one…
… and here is part two!
