FFG has announced new edition of Tigris & Euphrates

FFG yesterday announced a new edition of Tigris & Euphrates, the classic tile placement game by R. Knizia, for a release sometime during the second quarter of 2015:

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to be publishing Tigris & Euphrates, Reiner Knizia’s award-winning tile placement game, in which two to four players take on the roles of rulers building civilizations in ancient Mesopotamia.

This edition of Tigris & Euphrates maintains the game’s original mechanics while giving it an updated look based on the art of ancient Sumer and Babylon. It also features all the components necessary to play advanced variations, from a double-sided game board and civilization buildings to a wonder tile and accompanying idol.

The release of T&E marks the start of a new game line called “Euro Classics”, which aims to make classic Euro-style games available again.

Samurai Spirit: German Edition

Shortly before Christmas we have received the German edition of Samurai Spirit (the English edition isn’t available yet, so we ordered a few copies of the German one instead).

I have received a lot of questions if the game is language-independent. I’ve opened one copy to make sure that only the rules are German:

SamuraiSpirit1

SamuraiSpirit2

SamuraiSpirit3

SamuraiSpirit4

There is no text on any of the components, only the rules are German. To play the game, you only need the English rules from BGG.com

 

Merry Christmas

We wish everybody a

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The shop is now closed until the 4th of January. We will process all orders and reply to all emails once we are back at the office on the 5th.
