Roll Player back in stock soon

Good news: One of our favourite dice games of last year will be back in stock soon.

In Roll Player, you will compete to create the greatest fantasy adventurer who has ever lived, preparing your character to embark on an epic quest. Roll and draft dice to build up your character’s attributes. Purchase weapons and armor to outfit your hero. Train to gain skills and discover your hero’s traits to prepare them for their journey. Earn Reputation Stars by constructing the perfect character. The player with the greatest Reputation wins the game and will surely triumph over whatever nefarious plot lies ahead!

The restock for Roll Player has been confirmed and should arrive on Wednesday.

Sierra Madre Games: Three new games arrive next week

Every year Sierra Madre Games presents new games at the Essen board game show. Last year Phil Eklund brought three new games to the show:

Normally we would get the new games shortly after the end of the show. Not this year: for different reasons (and some of them worse than the usual production delays/problems) the games have been delayed month after month.

But finally, we have good news: Our supplier has received his stock and is busy at the moment getting all the pre-orders sorted and prepare them for shipment. If everything goes as planned and our order gets shipped on Monday, we should receive the new games by the end of next week.

To make sure that we can ship all our pre-orders as fast as possible once the stock has arrived we will send our the payment requests for unpaid pre-orders on Monday afternoon.

And a very big thank you to all our customers who placed a pre-order with us and staid patience all those weeks when we could only tell you that the games are delayed again.

Top 5 February

Another month has passed, time to look back what games did well during February:

Top 5 Sales
1) Stuffed Fables
2) Dice Throne
3) Fields Of Arle: Tea & Trade
4) Hunt For The Ring
5) Anachrony: Exosuit Commander Pack

Stuffed Fables was by far the biggest hit of last month with a lot of pre-orders in place before the release. With great looking components and a story that seems to appeal to grown up and children alike Plaid Hat Games has produced another winner.

A big surprise for us was Dice Throne, a game that quickly sold out, which in part was certainly due to the limited amount of copies available after the massively successful Kickstarter campaign. There is already a Second Season in the works and hopefully, a reprint coming of the First Season.

Top 5 Pre-Orders
1) Gloomhaven
2) Dragon Castle
3) Lorenzo il Magnifico: Houses of Renaissance
4) Clank! The Mummy’s Curse
5) City of Kings

Gloomhaven is still dominating our pre-orders. With a third print run coming in June/July, interest is still very high.

Dragon Castle was an Essen release von Horrible Games and now Cool Mini or Not are publishing the reprint coming this summer.

Cool Mini Or Not announced Zombicide Invader

The Zombicide game series has been a big hit so far for Cool Mini or Not. With Zombicide: Black Plague and Green Horde CMON took the series back in time to a medieval world (and added a lot of fantasy with the Orcs and Goblins in Green Horde).

The newly announced Zombicide Invaders takes a time travel to the future:

Humans set off into the stars in search of high-powered fuel and found it in the remote corner of the universe on the small planet PK-L7. Their discovery of Xenium — a dark, oily compound deep below the planet’s surface — was everything they hoped for. But they found something else, too. The Xenos attack was brutal and unrelenting. While the scientists and soldiers have held them off the best they could, the Xenos are still coming…

Zombicide: Invader is a cooperative game in which 1-6 players face Xenos, an unfathomable swarm of infected Xenos controlled by the game itself. Each player takes on the role of one to six survivors in a sci-fi setting being overwhelmed by these Xenos. The goal is simple: Choose a mission, complete its objectives, kill as many Xenos as possible, and (most importantly) survive!

The game will start as a Kickstarter project on the 10th April and if it follows the timeline of the last CMON KS projects should be available early 2019.

Agra: Reprint in April

Agra was the big box release from Quined Games at last year’s Essen show. It was a big hit for us and the delivery after Essen sold out fairly quickly. Unfortunately, it also sold out at the publisher so we couldn’t get a restock in.

But Quined Games has now announced a reprint for April. Pre-orders for the reprint are now open on our website.

Crediton Spring Gaming Day 2018 (14th April)

Good news: the Old Town Hall is booked for another Gaming Day here in Crediton.

The event starts at 1pm and ends at 21.30pm. As always we will have lots of games available to play from the Meeples’ Corner library and from the members of our gaming group. Here are a few of the games we will bring along:

  • Santa Maria
  • Clans of Caledonia
  • Spirit Island
  • Gaia Project
  • Gentes
  • Escape from the Dark Castle
  • Loot Island
  • Sid Meier’s Civilization: A New Dawn
  • Clank in Space
  • Cthulhu Wars
  • Dark Souls
  • London (2nd Edition / Osprey)
  • Orleans
  • Voyages of Marco Polo
  • Cthulhu Wars

For the first time, we are also planning a tournament for the day: It will be a 12 player Kingdomino tournament (every participant will receive two Kingdomino promo castles with a special price for the winner), played on a giant Kingdomino edition provided by Pegasus Spiele. More details about the exact format of the tournament will follow closer to the date, but at the moment it looks like we will have three qualifying games with the three winners and the highest scoring second placed player playing in the final.

Children are welcome (one of the reasons why we moved the event to a different location) and there will be games like Ticket to Ride Europe, Dream Home, Mysterious Forest and other games for younger players available.

Attendance for the day is free, so please come along and join us for some games!

For any questions, please leave a comment or sent us a message.

Restock: Orleans + Expansion

It is over three years since the release of Orleans from dlp games, but the bag building game is still one of our bestsellers. In the last few months the distribution for the game and the expansions was unclear, so it was a bit difficult to get regular restocks.

But today we have received a restock of both the base game and all three expansions. And in further good news: dlp games has managed to find a new distribution partner which hopefully means easier access for us to Orleans, the expansions and all the other games from dlp games (including the new release Moorea expected for April).
