Are you still looking for a peaceful and relaxing game for Christmas? We maybe have something for you: the Die Hard board game has arrived today.

But it wasn’t the only new arrival for today, here is what else came today:

And Brass: Birmingham and Flamme Rouge: Meteo are both finally back in stock.

Next week’s new releases confirmed

The new releases for next week have been confirmed and there are quite a few interesting games on the list.

On Friday two more games will get released:

Coffee Roaster: Incoming

Good news regarding Coffee Roaster, the new game from dlp games: The delivery has been shipped on Friday and should arrive here sometime this week.

Box Cover

Coffee Roaster is a solitaire pool-building game. You choose a variety of coffee beans you want to roast, and put a number of tokens specific to that variety into a bag. Each turn, you draw a number of bean tokens randomly from the bag to advance their roast level. When you are finished, you make a cup-testing to check the taste of your coffee and score points accordingly. Each variety has its own target roast level, but approaching the target is not enough for perfect roasting; you also have to even out the roast level of each bean, while not spoiling the flavor of that variety.

Coffee Roaster update

We had hoped to have Coffee Roaster from dlp games available for sale at this weekend’s Tabletop Gaming Live in London. Unfortunately, the game didn’t make in time.

But production is now finished and it is expected to arrive at the publisher’s warehouse either this or next week. So with a bit of luck, we should receive the game at the end of the first week of October.

Top 5 October

Another month has gone, time to have a look at the bestsellers of October.

The Top 5 in Sales are:

  1. Chronicles of Crime
  2. Gizmos
  3. Great Western Trail: Rails to the North (German Edition)
  4. Welcome To ….
  5. Altiplano: the Traveller

Chronicles of Crime is the first Murder Mystery game that uses Virtual Reality to let the players visit the game locations. Gizmos continues the good run of Phil Walker-Harding, who with Gingerbread House has  another new game out at the moment. Great Western Trail: Rails to the North is in the Top 5 for the second month in a row. Altiplano: the Traveller is the first expansion for the bag building game Altiplano.

Top 5 in Pre-Orders:

  1. Root: Riverfolk Expansion
  2. Root
  3. A Feast for Odin: The Norwegians
  4. Reykholt
  5. Key Flow

Root and the Riverfolk expansion have dominated the pre-orders in October. The first edition of Root sold out quickly, but the reprint is supposed to arrive in January/February together with the expansion. A Feast for Odin is a very popular game, so it’s no surprise that the expansion has made it into our Top 5. Reykholt is the new game by Uwe Rosenberg and as all his games, gamers seem to like them all.  Key Flow is a new card driven game based on the Keyflower.
