top 5 January 2019

January is always a bit of a quieter months for us. Partly because of our break at the beginning of the month and partly because most people tend to take a break from buying new games after the spending spree before Christmas

But we still had a few games that did very well for us, so here is a look at the Top 5 in sales for January 2019:

1) Root
2) Root: Riverfolk Expansion
3) Chronicles of Crime
4) The Quacks of Quedlinburg
5) SpaceCorp: 2025-2300 AD

Only two new games made it into our Top 5, the other three (Root, Chronicles of Crime and Quacks) were restocks of very popular games. The success of the Riverfolk expansion was no surprise, because Root was one of the biggest hits of 2018. And SpaceCorp is the first game from GMT making it into the Top 5.

And here are the Top 5 in Pre-orders:

1) Wingspan
2) Treasure Island
3) Underwater Cities
4) LotR: Journeys in Middle-earth
5) Inis: Isle of Seasons

Wingspan is the next big thing from Stonemaier Games. We had to close our pre-orders, because the first print run is all but sold out. But the good news is that the reprint is already in the works and shouldn’t be too far behind the first print run and is expected to become available in April/May.

New releases week 43

Yesterday was UK release day for a bunch of new games. I could barely fit them all on the same photo:

Top 5 August

August is the month of the school holidays, which is normally the time when we sell more family games and smaller games good for taking on a holiday.

This explains the two top games of our Top 5 in sales for August:

1) Ganz schön clever
2) Azul
3) Terraforming Mars: Prelude
4) Downforce: Danger Circuit
5) Skies Above the Reich

In our Top 5 Pre-Orders you can already spot two announced Essen releases. For September I expect the Essen releases to take over the Pre-Order Top 5.

Top 5 Pre-Orders
1) Arboretum (2018 Edition)
2) Teotihuacan City of Gods
3) Terraforming Mars: The Colonies
4) Altiplano: the Traveller
5) Forbidden Sky

As always Tuesday is the day when we get the week’s new releases delivered.

Later in the week, we are also expecting Star Wars: Imperial Assault – Tyrants of Lothal and Taj Mahal (2018).

But more interesting than the new releases are the restocks:
