Osprey Games News

Wildlands was a big success for Osprey Games. For later this year the publisher has announced two new releases based on Martin Wallace’s design.

The first one is a new map pack called The Fall of the Dark House. The pack will include three maps (Mansion, Hedge Maze and Crypt). The estimated release date for the pack is November 2019.

The second one is Judge Dredd: Helter Skelter, a new game using the Wildlands system but is based on the famous 2000 AD universe. The release is planned for the Essen board game show, so probably a retail release in late October.

Lots of new games and Die Tavernen are back

Another busy week in regards to new releases: 11 new games/expansions have arrived today. Here a quick look at all the new items:

Lots of shiny new games…

The three Undo games (best described as Time Stories meets EXIT) were our hottest games at the UK Games Expo and are now available for everyone who missed out at the show. Sorcerer is my favourite card game at the moment: I played it at the UK Games Expo and managed to buy one of the demo copies from White Wizard Games. Have a closer look at it if you like Mage Wars!

And not to forget: Die Tavernen im Tiefen Thal is finally back in stock after we received lots of requests in the week after the UK Games Expo.

We are Back

Meeples’ Corner is open again after we have returned from the UK Games Expo and checked all our remaining stock. But please bear with us while we are bringing stock levels back to normal!

While we have been away a few interesting games/expansions have been released and are now in stock:

Star Wars: Outer Rim setup
Yinzi Cover

For the end of the week we are expecting a restock of Tiny Towns and for next week we are hoping to have more copies of Die Tavernen im Tiefen Thal in stock.

Osprey Games announces WW2 Deck-builder

Osprey Games has announced Undaunted: Normandy, a deck-building game set during the campaign following the D-Day landings.

Cover

In Undaunted:  Normandy, two players face off to recreate the history of the US 30th Infantry Division as it fights its way across France following the D-Day landings.  One player controls a platoon of American soldiers, while their opponent controls a platoon of German soldiers, who face off in a series of combats. 
The platoons develop over the course of the game using a deck-building mechanic, with reinforcements adding cards and casualties removing them.  The cards are used to resolve battles, allowing players to seize the initiative, control their troops, and call for reinforcements.

The game was designed by David Thompson and Trevor Benjamin (War Chest). The release is planned for August and as soon as we have the details for the UK release we will start taking pre-orders.

Week 42: New releases confirmed

This week’s new releases have now confirmed and arriving this week are:

Sidereal Confluence will also make a comeback, but stock is very limited and already sold out to pre-orders. We are hoping to get more copies in before the end of the month, but have no confirmation for a second delivery yet.

What was released this week?

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

The week ahead

We are back from the Tabletop Gaming Live show in London. Today’s tasks are:

  • unloading the van
  • put the remaining stock back in our storeroom and update the online stock
  • sort through the bookkeeping for the weekend

Once all this is done we will activate the checkout for the online shop again.

Tomorrow we will get our usual delivery of new UK releases. This week it is a big one including the following games and expansions:

  • Welcome To Your Perfect Home
  • Renegade Booster Pack: Fire & Chaos
  • The Lady and the Tiger
  • Heroes of the Pacific
  • Heroes of the Nam
  • Heroes of the Motherland
  • Day of Heroes
  • Cryptid
  • The Lost Expedition: Fountain of Youth and Other Adventures
  • Coimbra
  • Reef
  • Dinosaur Tea Party
  • Brass Birmingham

Some of these games are not online yet, but we will try our best to add them to the website tomorrow morning before the delivery arrives. Once the delivery has arrived, we will check everything and start sending out the payment requests for all pre-orders (please accept our apologies that this is happening a day later than usual this week). Pre-orders will start shipping Wednesday morning and once all pre-orders have left the shop we will add the remaining stock to the website.

Once this week is done and everything is back to normal we will turn our focus back to our Essen preparations and will add more pre-orders to our Essen section on the website. If you have spotted something interesting and you are not sure if we will get it, just send us a short message and we will see what we can do for you!
