This week started as a disappointment in regards to new games (we didn’t expect any for Tuesday, the normal UK release day). But thanks to two deliveries today, we still have a few new games to show you:
Last week we reported that Dune was stuck in customs and that stock would most likely to be allocated.
The customs hold up seems to be over now, but the game will still be delayed until October because the print run will arrive in two waves in the UK and won’t get a retail release before both waves have arrived.
A delay is always annoying, but at least this one comes with the good news that our supplier is expecting to get all the stock he needs, so there won’t be any allocation and as it stands at the moment we will be able to fulfil all pre-orders.
We will post more updates, should there be any progress regarding the release date.
We have updates regarding three hotly anticipated new releases/reprints.
The 3rd print run of Wingspan has arrived in the UK and will be with us before the end of the week. We aim to send out all payment requests Wednesday afternoon to make sure that we can ship all pre-orders before the weekend.
The remake of Dune has arrived in the UK as well but is unfortunately stuck at customs. Depending on the cause of the hold up this can get solved fairly quickly but can also take some time. We will post an update as soon as we hear anything new.
And last but not least: Black Angel, the new game from Pearl Games, will get shipped today from the UK distributor to us and should arrive sometime tomorrow afternoon. We will start sending out the payment requests for pre-orders later today with the aim to ship all pre-orders on Wednesday morning.
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.
