Meeple Circus pushed back

I’ve just talked to one of my main suppliers about the availability of some of the Essen releases we are still waiting for. We also talked about Matagot and unfortunately, he didn’t have good news for me: Meeple Circus been pushed back all the way to January.

Presumably, this is because Matagot has no copies left and needs to reprint the game first before it can go to retailers (like it did happen with Inis last year).

I’m very sorry that I couldn’t find this out early. If your open order includes Meeple Circus please contact us so we can work out how you would like to proceed.

Pegasus Spiele event this weekend

On Saturday, the 25th November, we will run a special Pegasus Spiele event at the shop from 12pm until 5pm.

Pegasus has sent us a box of brand new games:

  • Istanbul – The Dice Game
  • Indian Summer
  • Azul (Pegasus is publishing the German edition)
  • Noria

These games (and other Pegasus games like Memoarrr or 4 Seasons) can get played at four tables during the afternoon.

Because on Saturday is also the Christmas lights switch on in Crediton parking at the High Street or the Market Square will be nearly impossible. The best option is the council car park at St. Saviour’s Way (£1 from 9am to 6pm).


Update for Gloomhaven and Sierra Madre Games

We have finally received an update about Gloomhaven: The game has left the factory and is now on it’s way to the UK. According to our supplier, he is expecting it to arrive at the warehouse during the first week of January, so hopefully, we will get our stock a week later.

And we talked to another supplier about the new Essen releases of Sierra Madre Games and he told us that there is no confirmed arrival date yet, but he hopes for the games to be available early December. The reason for the delay is a production problem with one of the three new games and SMG wants to make sure that this is solved before the games arrive at retailers.

We have received confirmation from our suppliers that the following games will arrive here next week:

  • Otys (Friday)

Altiplano: Early restock next week

We just received great news from dlp Games: They had an order cancellation and can send us another delivery with Altiplano. We have already confirmed the order and it will get shipped from Germany on Monday or Tuesday. If everything goes as fast as the last time, it should arrive on Friday.

Last week Man vs. Meeple posted their video review of the game, which gives you a good idea if this game could be for you (especially if you already own Orleans or have played it).
