Just before the weekend, we have received a few more new games/expansions.
Here are the new arrivals:
A busy start to the week with three large deliveries. Included were some interesting restocks:
But this is not all, we also received 12 new games/expansions:
2018 is here – a (late) Happy New Year to everyone!
We are back in action and the first two days last week have already been quite busy. On Friday we received the first new games of the year:
And the good stuff keeps on coming: for this week we are finally expecting the release of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle and The Monster Box of Monsters, the first expansion. Also expected to arrive is the reprint of Altiplano and Tybor the Builder, the new Mayfair Games card game set in the world of Longsdale.
And to look a bit further ahead: We’ve just added the pre-orders for Dark Souls – The Card Game and Alien Artifacts: Discovery (first expansion pack for Alien Artifacts) to the website. Both games/expansions are expected to be available sometime in March.
Tuesday is normally delivery day at Meeples’ Corner HQ and yesterday was no different. We received quite a few deliveries and three new games have been in stock since yesterday:
And today was the big release of the week: Century – Spice Road is finally available after the big success with the pre-release at the UK Games Expo.
But this is not all, we also received some interesting restocks:
Another big day at Meeples’ Corner HQ with lots of deliveries and new arrivals and restocks.
The restocks are:
New arrivals so far this week are:
Bad news regarding the release date of First Martians: We have been informed by one of our suppliers for the game that Portal has postponed the release until the 20th August. The reason for this is that they want to premiere the game at GenCon earlier in August.
I have finally received an update regarding three new releases expected to come in sometime in December:
Adrenaline – the Essen release from CGE is unfortunately delayed since the end of the show and so far hasn’t been available for retailers. I’ve talked to the UK distributor of the game and he is hoping for a delivery within the next 2-3 week. Unfortunately this would put the game at risk of missing Christmas.
Scythe: Invaders from Afar – again, the expansion is delayed. It was expected for he end of November, but is now another 1-2 weeks away from arriving in the UK. This give the expansion a better chance to make it before Christmas, but you never know.
Imperial Settlers: Aztecs – the newest Imperial Settlers expansion is having some production problems and has been delayed since the end of Essen. So far there is no new release date for the expansion, but I’m hoping that it should be available sometime in January.
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.
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.
