The wait is nearly over: The Wave 1 ships for Star Wars Armada will arrive in the UK next week. We don’t know yet, when the official release date is (= when the ships are allowed to be sold), but hopefully it won’t be to long after our delivery date. As soon as we know more, we will post an update!
Today we have added the option to collect your order at the UK Games Expo to our delivery options. If you would like to collect your game(s) at our stand (P9 – Palace room) at the Expo, please add the day you would like to come by in the comments section.
Portal Games has already one new game in the pipeline (Tides of Time / GenCon release) and now they have announced their second new game. It’s called Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot and a pirate dice game designed by Ignacy Trzewiczek.
Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot takes the fun of rolling dice and combines it with a rich scenario deck to make each game play differently. Each round, the players battle it out with merchant vessels and other ships, trying to grab as much loot as possible. One player takes dice from all the players, rattles them in their hand, and then tosses them into the game box to resolve the battle. Where your dice land in the box, as well as the symbols rolled determines the results of the battle and loot is claimed. Players may now return to port to upgrade their ship, hire new crew, or give their goods to the Pirate King for his favor. At the end of the game, the player who earned the most favor from the Pirate King is the winner!
The retail release for the game is planned for August. As soon as we know all the necessary details we will offer the game for pre-order.
We will also receive Eight-Minute Empire: Lost Lands and today our supplier told us that next week on Dominion: Adventures will be available in the UK. We don’t know the price yet, but hopefully we will get it before the weekend and will upload the expansion to the shop as soon as possible.
And last but not least: We are also expecting the restock of Mysterium (Polish edition). There are already a few pre-orders for the restock in place, but we still have some copies left.
