Restocks and new arrivals (14/02/18)

A busy start to the week with three large deliveries. Included were some interesting restocks:

But this is not all, we also received 12 new games/expansions:

Tomorrow is the release of Fields Of Arle: Tea & Trade (nearly sold out to pre-orders) and Star Trek Frontiers: Return of the Khan will be available from Friday.

Stuffed Fables release

Stuffed Fables, the new game from Plaid Hat Games, has been released today.

Stuffed Fables is the first “AdventureBook Game”, a new product line from Plaid Hat Games in which all of the action takes place in the unique storybook — a book that acts as your rules reference, story guide, and game board, all in one! Each adventure in the game takes place over several pages of the immersive AdventureBook. The book opens flat onto the table to reveal a colorful map or other illustration central to playing the game, with choices, story, and special rules on the opposite page.

Loot Island: Finally released

Loot Island, the Essen release from What’s your Game, has finally arrived at distributors and is on its way to us. If the delivery doesn’t get lost crossing the channel it should be here early next week.

In Loot Island, players play their map cards to the landings of the island in an attempt to piece together enough of a map to find treasures buried there. At the end of each round, an exploration will take place, and if loot is found in a landing, treasures will be distributed among the players present there on a first come, first serve basis.

Payments for Pre-Orders

Just a timely reminder with all those interesting pre-orders coming up: When you place a pre-order with us, you can either pay straight away during checkout with PayPal or your debit/credit card, but you can also choose our pre-order payment option. This means that you don’t pay during checkout and instead we will contact you for the payment once the order can get shipped.

Payment options during checkout

This way you pay for pre-orders when the order is actually available and not weeks or months in advance. And it also makes changes/additions to the order at a later date that much easier to handle for us.

We also have an FAQ regarding our pre-order process, you can find it here.

GameNight plays Majesty

GameNight!, the BoardGameGeek video show, has played another new game and this time it is Majesty: For the Realm, the new card game from Splendor designer Marc André.

The crown is up for grabs to whoever can build the richest domain and seize it from their rivals. It’ll take a whole kingdom’s worth of people to accomplish this monumental task. Rally your citizens, grow your power, and reign supreme in Majesty: For the Realm, a game of strategically selecting who you want to work your lands set during the Middle Ages. Each game, you recruit characters to perform jobs that generate gold for your kingdom. Some characters work better with others, opening many paths to victory. Whether you choose to be a silver-tongued monarch who rules with mercy, or an iron-fisted tyrant who crushes their rivals, the fate of the land rests with you.
