The Castles of Tuscany is a new game from Stefan Feld based on his classic game The Castles of Burgundy. It has been announced at the Nuremberg Toy Fair.
So far we don’t know much about it, but we know it will get released in March/April. The game is available to pre-order on our website and we will add more details to the prescription the moment we get them.
We have been a bit quiet in the last couple of days, but we had a reason for it: we have been buried under a flood of new games. So far we have received 16 new games/expansions with the two biggest hits (Marvel Champions and Tapestry / both Friday) still coming.
Die Tavernen im Tiefen Thal are nearly sold out to pre-orders, only a small number of copies are left. But we are expecting more stock in the next 2-3 weeks.
We will also bring along a demo copy of Die Tavernen to Paul Grogan’s Charity Games Day (4th May / Cullompton). If you are attending and would like to give the game a go, please come by – we have a stand in the reception area of the venue.
Capital was a surprise in April and despite an ugly graphic design the gameplay was a big success with our customers and we received a lot of great feedback. Yamatai is a success like all the big box releases from Days of Wonder, but this one is especially interesting for fans of Five Tribes. Clank! Sunken Treasures is the first expansion for Clank and after the success of the base game a Top 5 spot for the expansion was to be expected. Rounding up the Top 5 is Barenpark, the newest game of Cacao designer Phil Walker-Harding.
The two player version of Caverna took the top spot in the pre-order Top 5 easily. Charterstone and Terraforming Mars: Hellas & Elysium kept their Top 5 spots from last month and are still going strong. After the disappointment with the cancelled retail release of Gloomhaven 1st edition a lot of customers jumped on the chance to secure a copy of the reprint. And the Anniversary edition of In the Year of the Dragon is a game quite a few of our customers have been waiting for.
