I’ve uploaded this year’s Essen releases from Pegasus to the shop. All 5 games are now available to pre-order:
Memoarrr! (from Edition Spielwiese / publishers of Cottage Garden) is a memory game with a twist: You have to open a card that has either the same animal or the same backgroud on it as the last card in the chain to stay in the game. The last player left gets a victory point card and the new round starts with all the cards in the same place so in theory from round to round you should get better in building longer card chains. An expert rules variant adds special powers of the animals to the game.
We played it twice yesterday (without the special powers) and it was good fun. Easy to explain, short playing time – a nice family game or as someone in our group said a good candidate for a drinking game.
Devon Dice, our partner podcast, has posted three new reviews on their website:
I am really glad I have given Frogriders a chance, it’s another great game from the designer of Flamme Rouge, Asger Harding Granerud. A really fun tactical family game with a nice theme to fit the mechanics and it has given me some real gaming highlights, definitely a stayer in my collection.
Ultimately, it’s lightness may be its undoing for some gamers, but for me it is a delightful option for those times when you need something short, but fulfilling at the start or end of a game night. For less than £10 you really can’t go wrong.
This is a game which will sit happily alongside Five Tribes for me. It feels linked in some way, playing totally differently yet giving the same kind of vibe. If you were not a fan of Five Tribes you may not dig Yamatai either, for those same reasons mentioned above, but if you’re a fan of Five Tribes then you will almost certainly enjoy Yamatai, for different yet similar reasons.
Another big day at Meeples’ Corner HQ with lots of deliveries and new arrivals and restocks.

What does this mean for the shop?

After two busy days, I’ve finally some time to post an update about what games have arrived this week.
There have been some very interesting restocks:
