New arrivals (06/06/18)

We are back from the UK Games Expo and the website is up and running again (but with low stock levels which should get back to normal in the next 1-2 weeks).

We have brought a few games back with us from the Expo (or received them while we were at the show):

But these are not all new games we’ve got. This morning the weekly delivery of new UK releases has arrived with a few new games from HABA and other interesting games:

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.

 

 

New arrivals and restocks (17/04/18)

This week sees only a handful of new board games and expansions:

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.

And back in stock are Dice Forge and Battle For Rokugan.

Wildlands from Osprey Games announced

Osprey Games has announced a new game called Wildlands which will be designed by Martin Wallace:

Osprey Games is delighted to announce its first miniatures board game, Martin Wallace’s Wildlands, scheduled for worldwide release in Q4 2018.

In this fantasy game for two to four players, rival factions struggle for power in the ruins of a once-great kingdom, now known simply as the Wildlands. Each skirmish sees players attempt to outwit, outmanoeuvre, and overpower their opponents as they fight for riches and glory, scoring points by defeating enemy characters and collecting treasure. Familiarity with your favoured faction will help, but adaptability is the key to victory, as a semi-randomized set-up and double-sided board means that no two battles will tell the same tale.

The vivid world of Wildlands is brought to life through the artwork, board, and the twenty unique miniatures included in the game. Sculpted by Bobby Jackson and Tim Prow, they portray a wide range of characters, from powerful wizards and cunning gnomes to hulking beasts and mighty warriors.

It will be interesting to see how the component quality of the first miniature based game from Osprey will be holding up compared to the likes of FFG, CMON or Plaid Hat Games (Stuffed Fables looks amazing).
