It is the last week of February. A lot of the big releases we are waiting for (Underwater Cities: New Discoveries, Alubari, Shards of Infinity expansion) have still not arrived, but at least we have five new arrivals to announce for this week.
And we also received a small restock of Railroad Evolution, the expansion for Railroad Revolution. This seems to be the last stock for a while: our supplier has no stock left and doesn’t know when he will get more.
No big surprises here: Maracaibo is our Bestseller from the day we received the first delivery and it is still going strong. The Norwegians was a surprise restock and sold over 20 copies in a couple of days. Watergate is another steady seller and with Robin of Locksley (a Uwe Rosenberg design) the second two-player-game in the Top 5. And our Bestseller for 2019, Wingspan, starts the new year in the Top 5 with no signs of interest in the game slowing down.
New Discoveries, the first expansion for Underwater Cities, sold out shortly after Essen and now with the reprint getting closer interest is picking up again. Eclipse has still a strong following, so it is no surprise that this new edition (despite the high price tag) is generating interest. Atlantis Rising is the new edition of an older, well-received co-op game. Isle of Cats is another hit from publisher City of Games and Roman Banner is the second expansion for the successful follow up to Imperial Settlers.
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.
