This week we are expecting a small number of new releases than usual, but all of them are quite interesting. Confirmed are:
Both are expected to arrive tomorrow afternoon with pre-orders getting shipped on Wednesday.
These three games will get released on Thursday, with the pre-orders shipping first before we are processing new orders.

Another month is gone, time to have a quick look at the Top 5 in Sales and pre-orders.
Top 5 Sales:
- Civilization (2018)
- Dungeon Alliance
- 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
- Arkwright (2nd Edition)
- The Sands of Time
- Century – Eastern Wonders
- Coimbra (German Edition)
- 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.
Today we have received two big deliveries with lots of new games.
In stock are:
- Beyond Baker Street
- Arkwright (2nd Ed.)
- Kraftwagen (2nd German Edition)
- West of Africa
- Plus Ultra: The Court of the Emperor Charles V
- Dastardly Dirigibles
- Guildhall Fantasy: Alliance
- Lost in R’lyeh
- Airfix Battle
