We are getting closer and closer to Christmas and still, quite a few of the Essen releases haven’t arrived with us. But for this week a few more have been confirmed and it also looks good for next week.
Here are the games/expansions con arrive arrived this week:
Early next week Charterstone and the Recharge pack will arrive and hopefully the main part of our Photosynthesis order, Bunny Kingdom and Mountains of Madness (the last three should get confirmed later this week).
The first week after our summer break is done: All pre-orders are now shipped, we have caught up with all our emails and now everything is back to normal.
Today we have received the first deliveries of the week with two new games and some interesting restocks.
New in stock are
Matagot has announced Sonar, a 4-player-version of Captain Sonar:
Time for an underwater game of cat-and-mouse, with each of the two teams in ””’Sonar””’ competing to be the first to deal two points of damage to the other. Do that, and you win the game instantly.
In detail, ”Sonar” includes four pairs of maps, and each team takes the same maps in their color. A team can be one or two players, and with two players on a team, each player takes a different role: Captain or Radio Operator. (A one–person team handles both roles.) A divider separates the teams, and each Captain marks their starting location on the map.
On a turn, the Captain calls out an action, typically moving their sub one space north, south, east, or west. When they do this, they call out a direction, mark their new location, and add one energy to their ship’s register. The Radio Operator on the other team notes the movement of this sub on a plastic sheet, and through deduction and trial-and-error tries to determine exactly where the opposing sub might be on the map.
The game has been developed as a simplified version of Captain Sonar and in the US it will be available exclusively in Target stores. It is expected to be available in the 4th quarter, no news yet about an UK or Europe release.

We finally have some news regarding the two hottest games of 2016:
- Terraforming Mars: The reprint is slightly delayed and won’t be available before mid- to late February.
- Inis: The game will finally arrive in the UK next week, but unfortunately only in very limited numbers. We will only be able to process a very small number of our pre-orders next week, but we are expecting another delivery in a few weeks from one of our European suppliers.
It has been a while since the last blog post, but it was crazy busy with all the new games coming in.
In the last few days more games have been coming in, here is the list of it:
