Most of the new releases we announced for this week have arrived this morning:
You can find these games and all the other June releases here.
One of our bestsellers at the UK Games Expo was Die Quacksalber von Quedlinburg, the Kennerspiel des Jahres nominated game from Schmidt Spiele. We sold out at the Expo, but now the game is back in stock.
I can only recommend the game, it is a very good push-your-luck bag builder with very high variability in the setup so you should be able to play this a lot without getting bored.
Don’t believe me? Have a look at the new video overview from Boardgamegeek’s W. Eric Martin:
The UK releases for week 24 have been confirmed and are now online and available to order.
For tomorrow we are expecting:
For today or tomorrow, we are also expecting a small delivery of Raids, the new game from Iello that had a pre-release at the UK Games Expo.
We have just uploaded the Hellboy Agent Pledge pre-order to our website. Pre-order deadline for the KS bundle is 25th July and we are asking for a £10 deposit after you have placed your pre-order to secure your copy. Please choose the pre-order payment option during checkout. We will send you the payment link for the £10 deposit after we have received your pre-order and the payment link for the rest once we have the game in stock).
The closer we get to the end of May the quieter it gets for us because most of our customers are starting to prepare for the UK Games Expo. But we still had a good start to the month with lots of sales and newly placed pre-orders, so here is the look at last month’s Top 5.

Top 5 Pre-Orders:
We are back from the UK Games Expo and the website is up and running again (but with low stock levels which should get back to normal in the next 1-2 weeks).
We have brought a few games back with us from the Expo (or received them while we were at the show):
But these are not all new games we’ve got. This morning the weekly delivery of new UK releases has arrived with a few new games from HABA and other interesting games:
But this is not the end: For the beginning of next week,we are expecting a restock of Die Quacksalber von Quedlinburg, one of our bestsellers at the UK Games Expo and my favourite game at the moment.
And more good news: Early next week we are also receiving a small delivery of Raids, which was a pre-release from iello at the UK Games Expo and won’t be anywhere else in Europe available before August.
It is Friday, time for a look at the news:
The organisers of the UK Games Expo have just released a 30 page guide to the expo.
The guide includes the hall plans for Hall 1 and 2 in the NEC, the Hilton Hotel and the exhibitors’ index. Also included are the timetables for all the events, seminars and live shows going on during the three days.
