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.

Dungeon Alliance and Biosphere are here

Tuesday is our usual arrival day for new releases and this week three new games arrived in big brown cardboard boxes at the shop:

The two big ones are Biosphere from German publisher DDD Verlag (massive box with an insane amount of dice included) and Dungeon Alliance from Quixotic Games.

Here is a short video preview of Biosphere:

And a video review for Dungeon Alliance, a deckbuilding dungeon crawler:

And last but not least we have Capital Lux, a card game from Santa Maria publisher Aporta Games:
