Another big week

We are two days into another big week. Here are quick update of what games/expansions we have received so far.

We need a bigger table soon…

But that’s not all, later in the week we are expecting Ishtar: Gardens of Babylon and Uxmal.

Underwater Cities: Designer Diary for the Expansion

Vladimir Such, the designer of Underwater Cities, has posted a Designer Diary for New Discoveries, the first expansion for Underwater Cities.

Instead, the expansion — Underwater Cities: New Discoveries — is made of several independent modules that add a variety of aspects to the game, such as greater variability, asymmetric starting conditions, and more interaction.

The expansion will get released at Essen, hopefully we should be able to get some stock between the end of the show (= end of October) and Christmas.

Attention: Incoming Games

We are at the end of June and the new games are still coming in thick and fast. This week sees five main releases and one big restock.

The new releases arriving today/tomorrow are:

And we are also expecting Underwater Cities back in stock (new print run with better component quality / for owners of the first print run we will get an upgrade pack).

Underwater Cities is coming back

Underwater Cities, one of the hottest games from Essen 2018, is finally coming back in stock: We are expecting new stock by the end of next week.

In Underwater Cities, which takes about 30-45 minutes per players, players represent the most powerful brains in the world, brains nominated due to the overpopulation of Earth to establish the best and most liveable underwater areas possible.

If you haven’t heard about the game, here is a video review from No Pun Included:

But we also have good news for everyone who already owns the first edition of the game: we will get the Upgrade Kit which brings the game up to date with the same delivery. The Upgrade Kit will go online sometime next week and will cost £4.95.

Release Date Updates

It is the end of the month and again there have been some delays. Here are the most important releases that didn’t make it in April and their new release date:

  • Underwater Cities: Mid to late May because of production problems (a machine broke down at the printer)
  • Inis: Isle of Seasons : Mid May according to an Instagram post from Matagot.
  • Bunny Kingdom: In the Sky: the expansion has been released and the stock is on the way to the UK. It should become available after the May Bank Holiday weekend.
  • Men at Work: June (see reason here)
  • Star Wars: The Outer Rim – not all is bad, here are some good news: Outer Rim has been moved forward to May
  • Tiny Towns : it was supposed to get released this week, but Asmodee UK decided to push it back a bit because they didn’t receive enough stock to fulfil all pre-orders. More stock is expected in the next couple of weeks and all retailers will get their complete pre-orders without any allocations.

Underwater Cities and Talisman promo

Underwater Cities is back in stock. We have shipped all the pre-orders and have still a few copies left for new orders. And the game comes with the Biodome promo card.

We have also received the Druid promo hero for Talisman: Leendary Tales, the co-operative family board game from Pegasus Spiele set in the Talisman universe.
