Tuesday is new releases day: today we have received seven new games.

The new games have arrived. Everything is unpacked and most pre-orders have been shipped. Here is a quick look at this week’s new arrivals:
Century: A New World and Gandhi (the new COIN game from GMT Games) have also arrived, but have sold out to pre-orders.
We are at the end of June and the new games are still coming in thick and fast. This week sees five main releases and one big restock.
The new releases arriving today/tomorrow are:
And we are also expecting Underwater Cities back in stock (new print run with better component quality / for owners of the first print run we will get an upgrade pack).
This week’s new releases are now in stock and available to order online.
The new games are:
For tomorrow we are expecting the new expansion
Robinson Crusoe: Mystery Tales. The payment requests for pre-orders have been sent out yesterday, if you haven’t received it, please check your spam folders.
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:
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:
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.
Yesterday was UK release day for a bunch of new games. I could barely fit them all on the same photo:
New in stock are:
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
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.
This week it have been only three so far:
But more interesting than the new releases are the restocks:
