Buried under new Games

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.

Here a quick look at what we have got so far:

They barely fit all on one photo…

If you had a pre-order in place for any of these or for Marvel Champions or Tapestry and haven’t received your payment request yet: please check your spam folder.

DIe Tavernen im Tiefen THal and Las Vegas Royal

Two new games from Germany have arrived today: Die Tavernen im Tiefen Thal from Schmidt Spiele and Las Vegas Royal from Alea Spiele.

Two shiny new games

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.

New releases and restocks are in

Thanks to the bank holiday a day later than usual, but the new releases and some restocks are in.

Newly available are:

But this is not all, we also received those restocks:

In restocks we are expecting A Feast for Odin, Clank! (both in small numbers, more hopefully shortly before the UK Games Expo) and In the Year of the Dragon Anniv. Edition (sold out to pre-orders, but more coming for the UK Games Expo).

April Top 5

As always at the beginning of the month, we are looking back to the last month to see what the bestsellers have been.

Here are the Top 5 of April (Sales):

1) Capital
2) Clank! (Restock)
3) Yamatai
4) Clank! Sunken Treasures
5) Bärenpark

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.

And the Top 5 Pre-Orders:

1) Caverna – Cave vs. Cave
2) Charterstone
3) Terraforming Mars: Hellas & Elysium
4) Gloomhaven (Reprint)
5) In the Year of the Dragon: 10th Anniversary

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.

Next week’s releases are online

The new releases for next week have been confirmed and there should be something for everybody:
