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!

 

New pre-orders available

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:

 

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.
