We have received some interesting restocks yesterday and today.
Back in stock are:
It’s the summer holidays, but it looks like nobody has told this to the board game publishers. They keep on releasing game after game, which means that this week we are expecting fourteen new games/expansions:
Most of these will be available on Wednesday, but some (Ticket to Ride, Runebound Expansion, Modern Art) will get released at the end of the week.
A busy week comes to an end and a lot of new games are now available.
Today sees the release of The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire, the new big box game from Cool Mini Or Not designed by Eric M. Lang.
Early this week we have received more interesting new games and expansions:
We have also received a restock of Roll Player and this time in larger numbers, so we put the game back up on our website.
And good news in regards to the reprint of Cthulhu Wars: It has cleared customs and has arrived at our supplier. We will receive our delivery and will start shipping pre-orders on Wednesday.
With a bit of a delay, we have received confirmation of the new games we will get delivered this week.
Arriving soon are:
We also had hoped for an arrival early this week of the reprint of Cthulhu Wars, but unfortunately, it is stuck in customs and will need a few more days. Hopefully, by the end of the week, we should know more about the exact release date.
We have two new games in stock from today:
Dice Forge (Libellud)
Dice Forge is a development game featuring innovative mechanics based on dice with removable faces. In this dice crafting game, players build their own dice. Roll your dice, manage your resources, complete ordeals before your opponents and explore multiple winning strategies.
Now you control the luck of the dice!
Kronia (Cool Mini Or Not)
In Kronia, favor tokens are placed in three different temples, then players will make secret offers to these temples over the course of twelve rounds. Everyone starts with the same offer cards, so they must anticipate which Gods other players want to please. Deciding when to spend the more appealing offers and when to hold off can be the difference. In the end, the player with the most points from their favor tokens will be chosen to lead the nation into the future.
The Gaming Industry website ICv2 has posted a review of The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire, the new game from Eric M. Lang (published by Cool Mini Or Not):
Anyone who has seen the classic film The Godfather most certainly remembers it. Its iconic scenes and one-liners are imbedded in popular culture and even the American language since its release in 1972. Oddly, despite the obvious drawing power of the film, until recently there have been no games based on it. Designers afraid to cross the Don, perhaps? As the film passed the 40-year mark, though, a few designers have drawn on Coppola’s masterpiece. Most recently, Eric Lang has tried his hand. But is this an offer that can’t be refused? Or are you better off just taking the cannoli?
Gekido: Bot Battles from Cool Mini Or Not has been released today:
Gekido is a dice game in which each player controls a dragon, trying to beat other players by knocking their life dices from 6 points to zero. At each round, players rolls six 6 sided dice and try to score one of many combinations showed in his character sheet (pairs, three of a kind, four of a kind, etc), but watch out! If you fail on your gamble attempt you can hurt yourself instead of the enemy! As the battle gets more fierce, however, players would unlock new powers: when one of your life dices is reduced to zero, you gain new special abilities! The player who remains in play, knocking all opponent’s life dices, wins the game.
