Week 42: New releases confirmed

This week’s new releases have now confirmed and arriving this week are:

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.

Week 41: New releases are in

This week’s new releases have arrived. The new games in stock are:

Top 5 in September

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
3) Reykholt
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.

What was released this week?

Here is a quick look at what has arrived since we came back from Tabletop Gaming Live:

Some of these games are not online yet, but we will try our best to add them to the website tomorrow morning before the delivery arrives. Once the delivery has arrived, we will check everything and start sending out the payment requests for all pre-orders (please accept our apologies that this is happening a day later than usual this week). Pre-orders will start shipping Wednesday morning and once all pre-orders have left the shop we will add the remaining stock to the website.

Once this week is done and everything is back to normal we will turn our focus back to our Essen preparations and will add more pre-orders to our Essen section on the website. If you have spotted something interesting and you are not sure if we will get it, just send us a short message and we will see what we can do for you!

 

Feast for Odin: The Norwegians

Z-Man Games has announced the first expansion for A Feast for Odin:

The Norwegians offers new ways for players to guide their tribes to victory, including three double-sided action boards customized for different numbers of players that add a fifth column of action spaces for players to choose. 95 new goods tiles feature new animals, new types of food, and new equipment for the Vikings, who can now hunt elk, purchase horses, or craft weapons and armor, while the double-sided “artisan sheds” give players new ways to produce goods. Rounding out the expansion are eight double-sided exploration boards depicting distant cities like Cork, Limerick, and the Isle of Skye, which players can visit or raid.

A Feast for Odin: The Norwegians should be available before the end of the year and is available for pre-order.
