New Pre-Orders online (12/06/2015)

We have added a few new games for pre-orders to the online shop:

Origins Awards 2015

The Origins Award Winners 2015 have been announced. This year there have been two awards: The Academy Awards and the Fan Favorites (voted by attendees of Origins).

Academy Award Winners
– Best Board Game: Sheriff of Nottingham (Arcane Wonders)
– Best Card Game: Splendor (Asmodee)
– Best Historical Board Game: Heroes of Normandie (Iello)

Fan Favorites
– Best Board Game: Dead of Winter (Plaid Hat Games)
– Best Card Game: Star Realms (White Wizard Games)
– Best Historical Board Game: Heroes of Normandie (Iello)

I’m definitely in favour of the Fan Favorites. Dead of Winter and Star Realms are two great games. I haven’t played Heroes of Normandie yet, but it definitely looks very interesting.

Two new games available to pre-order

At last week’s UK Games Expo I’ve spotted two very interesting games:

  • DRCongo: The new game from Ragnar Brothers is based on the idea that the players try to develop the economy of the Congo to rescue it out of poverty and a crippling insurgency.
  • The Great War: This new game from PSC Games transfers the well known Command & Colors system designed by Richard Borg to the battle fields and trenches of WW1

DRCongo: Hope out of Horror The Great War

Both games are now available for pre-order. Estimated release date for both is early July.

First new releases after the UK Games Expo

We are back two days and we have already received the first new releases:
