As always we are offering a pre-order payment option during checkout: If you choose this we will contact you for the payment once the game is in stock and ready for shipment. Details of the pre-order process are explained here.
Welcome to the Arena of the all-powerful, where only the greatest mythological heroes fight to please the Gods. With Arena, dive into a universe in which heroes from 6 different mythos fight together for the entertainment of their Gods. Handpicked by a divine hand for a battle to the death, you’re assuming the role of a powerful fighter.
And back in stock is Kingdomino, the winner of the Spiel des Jahres award 2017.
In Kingdomino, you are a Lord seeking new lands in which to expand your kingdom. You must explore all the lands, wheat fields, lakes, and mountains in order to spot the best plots. But be careful as some other Lords also covet these lands…
It’s the summer holidays, but it looks like nobody has told this to the board game publishers. They keep on releasing game after game, which means that this week we are expecting fourteen new games/expansions:
Two new games from Pegasus have arrived yesterday afternoon: 4 Seasons (a 2-Player trick taking game) and Memoarrr!.
Memoarrr! (from Edition Spielwiese / publishers of Cottage Garden) is a memory game with a twist: You have to open a card that has either the same animal or the same backgroud on it as the last card in the chain to stay in the game. The last player left gets a victory point card and the new round starts with all the cards in the same place so in theory from round to round you should get better in building longer card chains. An expert rules variant adds special powers of the animals to the game.
We played it twice yesterday (without the special powers) and it was good fun. Easy to explain, short playing time – a nice family game or as someone in our group said a good candidate for a drinking game.
I’ve just updated our Pre-Order section and checked all the remaining July releases. Quite a lot of them won’t make the originally estimated release date of July and have slipped into August.
The delayed games are:
Arena: For the Gods
2x Champions of Midgard expansions
Junk Art (Plastic Edition)
Martians: A Story of Civilization
Master of Orion
Potion Explosion: The Fifth Ingredient
The Lord of the Ice Garden
Witches of the Revolution
July was maybe always a bit optimistic because like they do with Essen releases in October more and more publishers are planning to release/present game at Gencon in August, so there is no hurry to release a game before the show.
We also had hoped for an arrival early this week of the reprint of Cthulhu Wars, but unfortunately, it is stuck in customs and will need a few more days. Hopefully, by the end of the week, we should know more about the exact release date.
