Stock Update (11/06/20)

It’s nearly the end of the week, but today we have received three deliveries to get some new games in and also to prepare for the shop re-opening on Monday.

Planet X

Four new games are now in stock:

And we also had some restocks:

Spiel des Jahres Nominations 2020

The jury for the Spiel des Jahres awards has announced this year’s nominations.

For the Spiel des Jahres, the main award, these are:

  • My City (Reiner Knizia/KOSMOS)
  • Nova Luna (Uwe Rosenberg and Corné van Moorsel/Edition Spielwiese)
  • Pictures (Daniela and Christian Stöhr/PD-Verlag)

The second award is the Expert Game of the Year for the more complex games. Here the nominees are:

  • Cartographers (Jordy Adan / Thunderworks Games & Pegasus Spiele)
  • The Crew (Thomas Sing / KOSMOS)
  • The King’s Dilemma (Hjalmar Hach and Lorenzo Silva / Horrible Guild & HeidelBÄR Games)

All six games on the nomination list are usually in high demand the moment the nominees get announced. This year is no different: our remaining stock of Nova Luna sold out within one hour of the announcement. We have it on backorder at Pegasus but with no confirmed date yet. MyCity is so far only available as a German edition which is because of the Legacy element of the game of no use for us. The English edition will become available in July and pre-orders are still open. And Pictures is sold out at all distributors, with one showing the game as incoming, so hopefully, there will be some stock available soon.

For Cartographers we are expecting a small delivery tomorrow. The Crew has arrived today, but our stock has sold out to pre-orders with more stock expected for the end of the week. And The King’s Dilemma hasn’t been widely available in the UK for some time now. The initial delivery sold out quite fast and so far we haven’t received any restock.

A Barrage of new games

Just when our delivery driver thought he had made it to the weekend, we had another big delivery day.

Lots of shiny new games/expansions waiting for a new home…

And this one was full of big hitters:

But it wasn’t all about new releases, we also received restocks of the following games:

The last three ones on the list are perfect stocking fillers: affordable games with a lot going in a small and compact box.

Fallout Shelter and Hansa Teutonica News

We have barely seen all of the new Essen releases yet, but there are already some interesting announcements for 2020.

Box cover

Fantasy Flight Games has announced Fallout Shelter – The Board Game for the first quarter of 2020:

Build a better future underground in Fallout® Shelter™: The Board Game , a post-nuclear worker-placement board game for two to four players. Based on the hit mobile game from Bethesda Softworks, Fallout Shelter sees you take on the role of a vault officer fostering happiness among the citizens of your vault. With the election of a new Overseer looming, the officer who can gain the most happiness among the dwellers is sure to lock up the election and attain victory.

Cover of the old 2009 Edition

Another interesting announcement is the news that Pegasus Spiele is planning the release of a Hansa Teutonica Big Box in 2020:

As you might now know, Hansa Teutonica Big Box did not debut at SPIEL ’19. Asked for an update, Pegasus’ Ronja Lauterbach has let me know that “it took too long to work things out with the printers and our partners for other countries”, so the item was delayed rather than being rushed out. At this time, no release date has been set other than a general date of 2020.

More and more new games

We are only three weeks away from the Essen board game show and the number of new games is growing and growing. This week we have already received 14 new games/expansions.

And this is just part one…
… and here is part two!

Buried under new Games

We have been a bit quiet in the last couple of days, but we had a reason for it: we have been buried under a flood of new games. So far we have received 16 new games/expansions with the two biggest hits (Marvel Champions and Tapestry / both Friday) still coming.

Here a quick look at what we have got so far:

They barely fit all on one photo…

If you had a pre-order in place for any of these or for Marvel Champions or Tapestry and haven’t received your payment request yet: please check your spam folder.

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.
