Bezier Games has announced the follow-up game to The Castles of Mad King Ludwig: The new game is called The Palace of Mad King Ludwig and planned for an October release (this should mean Essen, so I’m expecting the game to be available after the show).
Created by Castles of Mad King Ludwig designer Ted Alspach, The Palace of Mad King Ludwig has players working together to build a magnificent palace for the King. Their goal is to be the one designer who has the greatest influence on the final palace.
While Palace shares some common features with Castles, it is a completely separate game with new mechanics. Notably absent from the new design are the auction mechanics of the original.

Today I’ve started our early Essen preview list. In the preview we will list all the games that we will be able to get. IMPORTANT: We are going to Essen, but only has a scouting trip and to talk directly to the various publishers and distributors. We won’t bring back any games from the show, but will get them delivered to us as soon as they get available. For most of the game this will mean that they will arrive at our office sometime between the end of the show and Christmas. We will list the estimated arrival dates as exactly as possible, but as always with Essen releases there will be delays.
To kick-off the Essen preview, I’ve listed new games from Bezier Games, Argentum Verlag, Sierra Maddre Games and R&R Games:
More games will follow in the next days and weeks. If you have any suggestions for a game you are interested in and can’t find on the list, please contact me.
Today we received a big treasure chest full of shiny new games.
