Both games are now available to pre-order and are expected to become available sometime in September.
GF9 has acquired the licence for Frank Herbert’s Dune. The licence includes the original books and the new material from Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson.
The first game planned for 2019 will be an RPG, followed by board and miniature games in 2020 (the release of the new Dune movie).

Gale Force Nine has announced Vault of Dragons, a new D&D game for a release in September:
In Vault of Dragons, players take the role of unsavory factions from the streets of Waterdeep, factions who have heard rumors of a hidden vault of gold under the city and are determined to locate it first.
In the game, players send followers to locations in Waterdeep to uncover rumors and treasure. Brawling with other factions to control key locations is to be expected, but beware the City Watch. Double-sided location tiles give players even more places to explore. Uncover the clues and enter the dungeons of the Undermountain to find the vault of dragons.

Gale Force Nine is working on a co-operative board game based on Aliens. Planned release is September 2018 and besides a picture of the box and some miniatures, there are not much more details available about the game.

Also expected to arrive is the reprint of Altiplano and Tybor the Builder, the new Mayfair Games card game set in the world of Longsdale.
And to look a bit further ahead: We’ve just added the pre-orders for Dark Souls – The Card Game and Alien Artifacts: Discovery (first expansion pack for Alien Artifacts) to the website. Both games/expansions are expected to be available sometime in March.
Great news for all Doctor Who fans: the Doctor Who boardgame Time of the Daleks has arrived and is in stock.
“Exterminate!” They muttered about their sacred hatred, the Oncoming Storm. Their creator had a plan, a plan to make the Daleks great again. A plan to turn all their defeats into victories. A plan to remove the one variable that has always interfered with the master plan. The Doctor must be erased from time itself!
Ever wanted to be the Doctor? Travel in time and space, meet companions and have adventures? In Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks you do just that, with every player picking a Doctor and trying to thwart the Daleks’ master plan of erasing the Doctor from history. Do you have what it takes to fill a Time Lord’s Shoes? Join us on an adventure in space and time with a game that is bigger on the inside…
This week’s new releases are all here. New in stock are:
- Klondike Rush
- A Fake Artist goes to New York (sold out, but will be back in September)
