GenCon tidbits

Last weekend was GenCon weekend. GenCon is the second largest board game show in the world and the event where US publisher make their big announcements. Here are a few I picked up when I was skimming through Twitter and Reddit posts:

  • Pandasaurus has announced Machi Koro Legacy

  • Indie Boards & Cards and Stronghold Games are merging

  • Restoration Games is bringing back The Dark Tower

  • FFG has announced Keyforge, a new card game. Here are some first impressions.

 

 

We are back

We are back from our summer break and Meeples’ Corner is open again.

After two weeks there is a lot of catching up to do, so the timetable for today looks like this:

  1. Reply to all emails (still a work in progress)
  2. Process and ship all orders from the last two weeks (DONE)
  3. Unpack and check all the new releases deliveries (nearly done)
  4. Add the new stock to the website and send out payment requests for pre-orders (not started yet)

Hopefully, we will get all this done by tonight or early tomorrow morning.

New releases for first week of summer break

The new releases for next week have been confirmed. The following games will get released in the UK:

Because of our summer break, these games will get shipped on Tuesday (7th August) or Wednesday (8th August) when we are back.

Azul: Stained Glass Of Sintra and more new pre-orders online

We have added a lot of new games to the pre-order section of our website in the last few days. Here is a selection of the five most interesting ones:

Great Western Trail: Rails to the North delayed?

Great Western Trail: Rails to the North was expected to be available at Gencon. According to Eric Martin (Boardgamegeek News) this is no longer the case:

Our German supplier still lists the expansion as an August release, but I didn’t had the chance to talk to him about this. I will post an update as soon as I know more.

 

Summer break and pre-orders

Our shop will close on Monday for our summer break (it will open again on Tuesday, 7th August). We have received our last new releases before the summer break yesterday, all remaining expected releases for this month had to be moved into August.

While the shop is closed we will still receive the usual new releases deliveries every Tuesday. Any game that gets released during our break, will be on hold and the orders will get processed as soon as we are back. We will post an update on the day we are back to let you all know which games these are.

I’m very sorry if this will cause any delays in getting your game(s).

Two new games from Plaid Hat Games

Plaid Hat Games has announced two new games.

Assemble the ultimate team and join the fight in Guardians, a game of super-powered battles for two or four players! The Guardians were once a network of legendary heroes that fought for peace and justice. They were influential in establishing InterGov, the world’s first global government. The Guardians chose to step aside so that InterGov could usher the world into a new age of peace and prosperity. Nearly three decades have passed, and new threats have emerged to challenge the peace these heroes fought for. A new generation of heroes must now rise and fight for the future!

The game will be available in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Plaid Hat Games is proud to announce Neon Gods, the strategy game of futuristic gang warfare set in the far future of, um, 2009. Neon Gods is a story of street gangs set in a kaleidoscopic near future inspired by sci-fi cinema of the 70s and 80s. Start your own (legitimate) businesses and watch them flourish. Recruit the finest disillusioned ne’er-do-wells to hold your territory, and purchase black market resources that’ll give you the edge. Be prepared to fight for what’s yours, because your opponents will muscle in on your territory. And don’t forget the cops, who clearly don’t have anything better to do than harass innocent business owners such as yourself. The world may not think much of you, but in the back alley glow of the neon night, you can be a god.

The game should be available from retailers before the end of the year.
