Hans im Glueck has presented Race to the New Found Land, their new big box game, at the Nuremberg Toy Fair.
Daring sailors explore the oceans and make a gigantic discovery: Newfoundland. The newly found land. A huge island off the coast of North America — and right away a competition among nations breaks out. As so often happens, everyone wants the biggest piece of land. In Race to the New Found Land, you must skillfully use your fleet to consistently present achievements to your royal house. Are you quick to set sail and populate the first known lands? Do you first explore new areas? Or do you trade and build your fleet first? Find out in this exciting race to Newfoundland!
Eric Martin (BGG News) had a look at the game at the Toy Fair and has posted this video overview:
The game is expected to get released in April. At first, it will only be available as a German edition, with the English edition coming from Zman Games later in the year. But the components will be language independent and an English rules translation has already been posted.
We are quite busy this week with a lot of new games arriving at the same time. Here a short update what has happened today and yesterday and what we are expecting for the rest of the week:
Yesterday Great Western Trail finally arrived. All pre-orders have been shipped today. The next delivery of the game should arrive in a few weeks, we will post an update as soon as we have a confirmed delivery date.

Renaissance Europe is coming together, and people have realized that even the most powerful dynasties can achieve more together, so members of those dynasties are marrying, trading and sharing with one another — but who will end with the biggest piece of the pie?
In Dynasties, players must make many compromises, whether acting on their own or reacting to the behavior of their fellow players. In addition to these tactical and strategic decisions, luck also plays something of a role as not every marriage brings the windfall expected. Perhaps then another marriage will bring more success and influence?
The Hundred Years’ War is over and the Renaissance is looming. Conditions are perfect for the princes of the Loire Valley to propel their estates to prosperity and prominence. Through strategic trading and building, clever planning, and careful thought in The Castles of Burgundy: The Card Game, players add settlements and castles, practice trade along the river, exploit silver mines, farm livestock and more.
