Underwater Cities is coming back

Underwater Cities, one of the hottest games from Essen 2018, is finally coming back in stock: We are expecting new stock by the end of next week.

In Underwater Cities, which takes about 30-45 minutes per players, players represent the most powerful brains in the world, brains nominated due to the overpopulation of Earth to establish the best and most liveable underwater areas possible.

If you haven’t heard about the game, here is a video review from No Pun Included:

But we also have good news for everyone who already owns the first edition of the game: we will get the Upgrade Kit which brings the game up to date with the same delivery. The Upgrade Kit will go online sometime next week and will cost £4.95.

Lots of new games and Die Tavernen are back

Another busy week in regards to new releases: 11 new games/expansions have arrived today. Here a quick look at all the new items:

Lots of shiny new games…

The three Undo games (best described as Time Stories meets EXIT) were our hottest games at the UK Games Expo and are now available for everyone who missed out at the show. Sorcerer is my favourite card game at the moment: I played it at the UK Games Expo and managed to buy one of the demo copies from White Wizard Games. Have a closer look at it if you like Mage Wars!

And not to forget: Die Tavernen im Tiefen Thal is finally back in stock after we received lots of requests in the week after the UK Games Expo.

Five new Arrivals (12/06/19)

It is new release day and this week we have received five new games/expansions.

Today’s new arrivals

We have also received a restock of Mystic Vale: Harmony, the latest expansion for Mystic Vale.

Next week will be a lot busier with stock expected of the new Gloomhaven expansion, Inis: Seasons, Jagged Alliance, the new Undo games from Pegasus and a restock of Die Tavernen im Tiefen Thal.

Dare the Meeple at the UK Games Expo

On Sunday at the UK Games Expo, we were running a “Dare the Meeple” discount offer. Everybody we talked to thought it was a good idea and we had lots of laughs at the checkout counter during the day.

And we even made it into a post-Expo review video (at 2m 40s):

The Romans in stock

The last ever game from the Ragnar Brothers is now in stock. The Romans is the third and last quantum game:

The Romans traces the history of the Roman Empire from its inception as a small Italian Kingdom, through its development and expansion as a Republic and thence to the full-blown Empire that dominated the classical world. Enemies mount challenges throughout the game and ultimately the barbarian invasions drive deep into the Empire with Rome itself as their target.

But this is not just a game of conquest. Senators grapple for power in the buildings of the capital and players will score victory points by developments through the game.

Box Cover

We are Back

Meeples’ Corner is open again after we have returned from the UK Games Expo and checked all our remaining stock. But please bear with us while we are bringing stock levels back to normal!

While we have been away a few interesting games/expansions have been released and are now in stock:

Star Wars: Outer Rim setup
Yinzi Cover

For the end of the week we are expecting a restock of Tiny Towns and for next week we are hoping to have more copies of Die Tavernen im Tiefen Thal in stock.

Shop closed for UK Games Expo

Meeples’ Corner is closed until Tuesday, 4th June because we are at the UK Games Expo with a large part of our stock.

We will come back on Monday, 3rd June, but will certainly need a day or two before everything is back to normal and we can open the shop again.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused!

Insert Comparison

Inserts for boardgames that replace the often cheaply made tray/inserts that come with board games are getting more and more popular. They help you to keep the components sorted and make the setup and packing everything back in the box much faster.

But there are a lot of different options available. Nick Welford helps with the decision making (if you think about getting an insert for your favourite game), but comparing the most popular brands:
