What happened this week?

A very busy week comes to an end, time for us to give you a quick summary of what has arrived this week:

Blue Lagoon and Everdell proved to be quite popular and are already out of stock, but hopefully we will get more copies next week.

Wednesday:

Thursday:

Friday:

All in all a very busy week with 23 new releases. And by the looks of it next week won’t be any quieter, but more about next week on Monday.

 

New pre-orders online

We have added the pre-orders for five new exciting games/expansion:

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:

New arrivals and restocks (02/05/18)

It’s the middle of the week and most of our big deliveries have already arrived. A few of our new releases have already sold out and we are waiting for news about a restock (Black Orchestra, Arkwright, Railways of the World).

Still in stock are:

And the reprints of the highly regarded Memoir’ 44 expansions are coming in. This week we received two new ones and two restocks:

 

 

March Top 5

Another month is gone, time to have a quick look at the Top 5 in Sales and pre-orders.

Top 5 Sales:

  1. Castell
  2. Civilization (2018)
  3. Dungeon Alliance
  4. Biosphere
  5. Meeple Circus

Castell was another hit from Renegade Game Studios and it looks like they can’t do anything wrong at the moment. Civilization was the surprise of the month, because it is still the same old game (but a very good one) without any attempts of a redesign. Dungeon Alliance is another successful Kickstarter hampered at retail by a lack of available stock. Biosphere is a monster of a game (300 dice included), but has earned good feedback at Essen and is now finally available in larger numbers. Meeple Circus is another Essen release that took a while to finally arrive in the UK.

Top 5 Pre-Orders

  1. Arkwright (2nd Edition)
  2. The Sands of Time
  3. Century – Eastern Wonders
  4. Coimbra (German Edition)
  5. Rising 5: Runes of Asteros

The first edition of Arkwright has been a success, so the second edition topping the Pre-orders for March is no surprise. The Sands of Time is the new Spielworxx game, always highly sought after by fans of heavy-weight games. Eastern Wonders is the second game in the Century trilogy, it will be interesting to see what the difference to the first one is and if it will be a similar success for Plan B Games. Coimbra is another Plan B Games and the new Eggertspiele release after their hits Great Western Trail and Heaven & Ale. Unfortunately, so far only available to pre-order in the German Edition. Rising 5: Runes of Asteros is a cooperative deduction game and another game has been delayed for a while now.
