Busy day: Seafall and more have arrived

Today was a busy day at Meeples’ Corner HQ. We have received three deliveries with quite a lot new games. In stock are from today:

In addition to the new games we also received restocks of the two biggest hits at the moment: Great Western Trail and Cottage Garden.

New Delivery and more to come

To start off another interesting week we have received a delivery with three new games:

What else is coming this week? We are expecting a restock of Great Western Trail, the Essen hit from Pegasus Spiele.

Also expected are the deliveries of:

bios_genesis

And finally we have just received confirmation that SeaFall, the new Legacy game, has arrived in the UK and should be in stock from Thursday on.

Updates: Terraforming Mars, Cry Havoc and the new Ashes decks

terraformingmars

Today we have received our first delivery of Terraforming Mars. We have got enough copies to fulfil the pre-orders, but unfortunately there are no copies left for new orders. But we have received confirmation that we will get a restock during the second week of November. And more good news: We have enough copies of the “Small Asteroid” promo card left for the restock delivery in November.

cryhavoc

Cry Havoc will get released on Thursday at the Essen board game show and the expectation was that the game would also be available for retailers at the same time (at least that was what our suppliers told us). I’ve checked with three different suppliers yesterday and so far none of them has received any stock of Cry Havoc. One of them will talk to Portal at Essen, so hopefully next week when he is back I should know more about a possible delivery date for Cry Havoc.

The two new decks for Ashes: Rise of the Phoenix have arrived in the UK last Friday, but unfortunately the same that happened with the first two decks has happened again: Esdevium, the UK distributor, has received just a few cases of the new decks, barely enough to supply all the shops that are running the release tournaments. Because of this very limited availability Esdevium has removed the decks from general sale and are now waiting for a new delivery, which unfortunately can take a few weeks.

 

New games of the last two weeks

Here is a summary of all the new games we have received in the last two weeks:

New pre-orders availble

Yesterday I’ve uploaded three very interesting games to our pre-order section of the online shop.

DoW_LongNight-600x600

The first one is Dead of Winter: The Long Night, the first (stand-alone) expansion for Dead of Winter.

pandemic_cthuhlu

The second new game is Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu. It combines the classic Pandemic gameplay with the Cthulhu mythos and the fight against the Old Ones. Both games are expected to be available sometime in August/September after the Gencon.

SeaFall-600x600

The third and last new game is again from Plaid Hat Games: SeaFall is the third Legacy game (Risk Legacy and Pandemic Legacy are the first two), but the first really new Legacy game (not just an existing game with the the Legacy mechanism added on). Unfortunately SeaFall won’t be available before the autumn, so I’m expecting an Essen release (October).
