Two games delayed until June

The coronavirus is not just causing game shop and board game cafe closures all around the country, it is also causing a lot of delays in the production and delivery of new games.

Two games hit by these delays are

Both games have now been pushed back to June. We are very sorry about the delay. If you have pre-order in place for one of these games and would like to change it, please let me know.

Top 5 January 2020

With the Christmas chaos now more than a month behind us, it is time to get back to normal and take a look back at last month’s Top 5 in Sales and Pre-orders.

Top 5 in Sales:

Top Seller two months in a row
  1. Maracaibo
  2. A Feast for Odin: The Norwegians (German Edition)
  3. Watergate
  4. Robin of Locksley
  5. Wingspan (incl. Swift Start)

No big surprises here: Maracaibo is our Bestseller from the day we received the first delivery and it is still going strong. The Norwegians was a surprise restock and sold over 20 copies in a couple of days. Watergate is another steady seller and with Robin of Locksley (a Uwe Rosenberg design) the second two-player-game in the Top 5. And our Bestseller for 2019, Wingspan, starts the new year in the Top 5 with no signs of interest in the game slowing down.

Top 5 Pre-Orders

The first expansion to 2019’s surprise hit
  1. Underwater Cities: New Discoveries
  2. Eclipse: Second Dawn for the Galaxy
  3. Atlantis Rising (2nd Edition)
  4. The Isle of Cats
  5. Imperial Settlers: Empires of the North – Roman Banners

New Discoveries, the first expansion for Underwater Cities, sold out shortly after Essen and now with the reprint getting closer interest is picking up again. Eclipse has still a strong following, so it is no surprise that this new edition (despite the high price tag) is generating interest. Atlantis Rising is the new edition of an older, well-received co-op game. Isle of Cats is another hit from publisher City of Games and Roman Banner is the second expansion for the successful follow up to Imperial Settlers.
