This week’s new UK releases are all in stock. Here is a quick look at them:
Underwater Cities is back in stock. We have shipped all the pre-orders and have still a few copies left for new orders. And the game comes with the Biodome promo card.
The good news: The Norwegians expansion has finally arrived in the UK. The bad news: only in very small numbers.
So for us, this means that of 24 copies we had pre-ordered with the UK distributor we only will get three copies. This, unfortunately, means that we won’t be able to fulfil most of the pre-orders that have been placed with us.
We have informed all our pre-order customers by email and are very sorry that it has come to this. Because at the moment we don’t know if/when there will be a restock of the English edition, we are looking into ordering the German edition of the expansion which could be here sometime next week (and is with £24.95 also a lot cheaper than the English one).
The only problem: there is some German text on the game boards and some tokens.
For comparison here is a screenshot of the English components of the expansion:
There is also a discussion on BGG about the language independency of the expansion:
To be clear you won’t need to know another language to be able to play it.BGG forum
However, the new action board and exploration boards will have text on them. For me personally this means I will be waiting for an English copy.
It will be up to each individual though to know how important that is to them.
If based on this informations anybody is interested in taking a copy of the German edition instead of the English edition, please let us know. We will place the order in Germany on Friday morning and should have the expansion in stock sometime next week.
Bunny Kingdom in the Sky is the first expansion for Richard Garfield’s Bunny Kingdom.
BunnyKingdom in the Sky adds a new game board to the world of Bunny Kingdom that allows you to link fiefs in the sky with those on land. Aside from the game board, this expansion includes new cards, new types of resources, a set of playing pieces that allow five bunnies to play in the same game, and a larger type of building that increases your influence in that area by a factor of five.
The estimated release date for the UK is May and the expansion is now available to pre-order.

If you are not sure about the game yet, here is a review of the game by Gaming Rules!
January is always a bit of a quieter months for us. Partly because of our break at the beginning of the month and partly because most people tend to take a break from buying new games after the spending spree before Christmas
But we still had a few games that did very well for us, so here is a look at the Top 5 in sales for January 2019:
2) Root: Riverfolk Expansion
3) Chronicles of Crime
4) The Quacks of Quedlinburg
5) SpaceCorp: 2025-2300 AD
Only two new games made it into our Top 5, the other three (Root, Chronicles of Crime and Quacks) were restocks of very popular games. The success of the Riverfolk expansion was no surprise, because Root was one of the biggest hits of 2018. And SpaceCorp is the first game from GMT making it into the Top 5.
And here are the Top 5 in Pre-orders:
2) Treasure Island
3) Underwater Cities
4) LotR: Journeys in Middle-earth
5) Inis: Isle of Seasons
Wingspan is the next big thing from Stonemaier Games. We had to close our pre-orders, because the first print run is all but sold out. But the good news is that the reprint is already in the works and shouldn’t be too far behind the first print run and is expected to become available in April/May.
