And if you would like to know what is included in the expansion, here is a first look at all the components in the box:
Fallout Shelter is the new board game from FFG releasing later this month. Not much is know about the game yet, but Asmodee UK had the chance to play an early copy on their Twitch/Youtube channel.
Build a better future underground in Fallout Shelter: The Board Game, a post-nuclear worker-placement board game for two to four players. Based on the hit mobile game from Bethesda Softworks, Fallout Shelter sees you take on the role of a vault officer fostering happiness among the citizens of your vault. With the election of a new Overseer looming, the officer who can gain the most happiness among the dwellers is sure to lock up the election and attain victory.
We have been a bit quiet in the last couple of days, but we had a reason for it: we have been buried under a flood of new games. So far we have received 16 new games/expansions with the two biggest hits (Marvel Champions and Tapestry / both Friday) still coming.
A new LCG is coming from FFG and this time it is based on the Marvel universe:
Marvel Champions: The Card Game invites players embody iconic heroes from the Marvel Universe as they battle to stop infamous villains from enacting their devious schemes. As a Living Card Game, Marvel Champions is supported with regular releases of new product, including new heroes and scenarios—check out the products section at the bottom of this page to see everything announced so far!

The game is now available to pre-order and is expected to get released in Q4. It is a bit pricier than the other starter sets of LCGs like Arkham Horror or Lord of the Rings. But the main reason for this is that FFG has stated that with the Marvel starter set there is no need to buy a second set to get enough copies of all the cards.
Last weekend was the UK Games Expo at the NEC in Birmingham. Since we came back, I’ve been asked a lot about the hot games of the show. So here is a quick look at our bestsellers:
KeyForge: Call of the Archons – Decks & Starter Sets
Doppelt so clever (English Edition)
Die Tavernen im Tiefen Thal
Century – A New World
Star Wars: Outer Rim
The Quacks of Quedlinburg
Chronicles of Crime
The Quacks of Quedlinburg: The Herb Witches
Not surprisingly the hottest games were the ones that got released at the show and haven’t been available before like the new KeyForge set or Foothills. Wingspan also flew from the shelves and Wolfgang Warsch dominated the Top 10 with his latest four games.
February was surprisingly busy, which in part was caused by the delayed release of quite a few games and expansions at the end of 2018.
Here is a quick look at the Top 5 in Sales:
1) The Quacks of Quedlinburg 2) Doppelt so clever 3) Caverna: The Forgotten Folk 4) Gloomhaven 5) Underwater Cities
And the Top 5 in Pre-orders:
1) Food Chain Magnate: The Ketchup Mechanism and Other Ideas 2) KeyForge: Age of Ascenscion – Archon Starter Sets & Decks 3) Crusader Kings – The Board Game (Royal Edition) 4) Star Wars: The Outer Rim 5) Bunny Kingdom: In the Sky
Yesterday FFG announced Age of Ascension the second set for KeyForge:
Become a new Archon in Age of Ascension! As a new set of KeyForge, Age of Ascension mixes up the cardpool with 204 brand-new cards, joining 166 cards first introduced in Call of the Archons to create an entirely new pool of 370 cards and billions upon billions more Unique Decks for you to discover, learn, and master.
