Dune: Good news and bad news

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.

Wingspan, Dune and a Black Angel

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.

Vault of Dragons announced

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.

Co-op Aliens game announced

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.

We are back in action

2018 is here – a (late) Happy New Year to everyone!

We are back in action and the first two days last week have already been quite busy. On Friday we received the first new games of the year:

And the good stuff keeps on coming: for this week we are finally expecting the release of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle and The Monster Box of Monsters, the first expansion. 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.

The Tardis has landed

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…
