Osprey Games has announced Undaunted: Normandy, a deck-building game set during the campaign following the D-Day landings.
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.
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.
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
The Lost Expedition: Fountain of Youth and Other Adventures
Dinosaur Tea Party
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!
It’s a great time of the year for board game fans: We still get a flood of games that have been presented at GenCon but haven’t made their way to Europe yet and we are starting to see the first Essen announcements popping up.
We have added a few new games to our pre-order section, here are a few highlights:
But this is not the end: For the beginning of next week,we are expecting a restock of Die Quacksalber von Quedlinburg, one of our bestsellers at the UK Games Expo and my favourite game at the moment.
And more good news: Early next week we are also receiving a small delivery of Raids, which was a pre-release from iello at the UK Games Expo and won’t be anywhere else in Europe available before August.
But what got me excited is that we finally managed to stock Frostgrave (Fantasy Skirmish) and Gaslands (Mad Max style car battles/races), two wargame rulesets from Osprey Games. Both games don’t need massive amounts of miniatures or terrain or other things to play them. If you have some Hotwheel or Matchbox cars, some D6 dice and a large enough table you have everything you need to play Gaslands. And Frostgrave is perfect if you have a Fantasy board game with miniatures like Descent, the D&D games of Zombicide: Black Plague. With the figures from these games, 2x D20, a ruler to measure movements and playing area of 3′ x 3′ you have everything to try out this game and have a blast.
