Bunny Kingdom Expansion delayed

The first Bunny Kingdom expansion In the Sky has been delayed a bit and is now expected to arrive at the end of this week.

Expansion cover

Bunny Kingdom in the Sky adds a new game board to the world of Bunny Kingdom that allows you to link fiefs in the sky with those on land. Aside from the game board, this expansion includes new cards, new types of resources, a set of playing pieces that allow five bunnies to play in the same game, and a larger type of building that increases your influence in that area by a factor of five.

Release Date Updates

It is the end of the month and again there have been some delays. Here are the most important releases that didn’t make it in April and their new release date:

  • Underwater Cities: Mid to late May because of production problems (a machine broke down at the printer)
  • Inis: Isle of Seasons : Mid May according to an Instagram post from Matagot.
  • Bunny Kingdom: In the Sky: the expansion has been released and the stock is on the way to the UK. It should become available after the May Bank Holiday weekend.
  • Men at Work: June (see reason here)
  • Star Wars: The Outer Rim – not all is bad, here are some good news: Outer Rim has been moved forward to May
  • Tiny Towns : it was supposed to get released this week, but Asmodee UK decided to push it back a bit because they didn’t receive enough stock to fulfil all pre-orders. More stock is expected in the next couple of weeks and all retailers will get their complete pre-orders without any allocations.

Top 5 February

February was surprisingly busy, which in part was caused by the delayed release of quite a few games and expansions at the end of 2018.

Week 48: What has happened?

Last week was crazy busy, so not much time for updates here in the blog. But now with the weekend in sight there is time for a look back what has happened/arrived this week.

New arrivals this week included:

What was released this week?

Here is a quick look at what has arrived since we came back from Tabletop Gaming Live:

Raids in stock

Raids, the UK Games Expo release from Iello, has arrived today.

In Raids, prepare your crew and steer your Longship to the best locations to discover the most treasure and earn the greatest glory.

Another player may have his sights set on the same location as you. Don’t hesitate to order your Vikings aboard his ship to threaten him and try to make him flee. Only one of you can leave with the treasures you’ve discovered!

The player with the most Glory points at the end of the fourth Voyage wins the game.

Joel from the Devon Dice Podcast was at the Expo and he has already published an unboxing video for the game:
