Essen preview is growing

The Essen section of our website has been online for a few weeks now, but just in the last few days, I managed to really start looking into the Essen releases for this year. As a result, the Essen preview is growing and includes now 79 games/expansions. New additions are:

As in the last couple of years, we won’t go to Essen to collect games. But the Essen preview shows all the games that will get presented at Essen and which we will be able to get thanks to our network of suppliers. Some of the games have already been released, some are on the way to us and will be available before Essen but most games will get available sometime between the end of the Essen show and Christmas.

Quined Games announces 2nd Edition of Firenze

Quined Games has announced a new edition of the 2010 game Firenze (designed by Andreas Steding / published by Pegasus Spiele).

We hereby introduce our third new release for Spiel 2018: Firenze (2nd edition). This game probably needs less of an introduction, since it was already released back in 2010, was well rated but never became widely available. We are delighted to announce that Firenze finally gets its long-awaited reprint, fully language-independent through the use of simple yet elegant iconography on the games’ cards! We are happy to add Firenze as the 23rd game to our Masterprint Series.

The game will be available after the Essen (sometime in November) and it is available to pre-order.

New releases have arrived (week 33)

Another busy day of unpacking and processing pre-orders is behind us. Now that the dust has settled, here a quick look at what has arrived so far:

That’s all for today, we are back tomorrow with updates about the Azul First Player Token and our Gaming Day on Saturday.




Agra: Reprint in April

Agra was the big box release from Quined Games at last year’s Essen show. It was a big hit for us and the delivery after Essen sold out fairly quickly. Unfortunately, it also sold out at the publisher so we couldn’t get a restock in.

But Quined Games has now announced a reprint for April. Pre-orders for the reprint are now open on our website.

Publisher spotlight: Quined Games

Yesterday we received our first delivery from Quined Games, a small board game publisher from the Netherlands. Here is a description of Quined Games and their well known Master Print series in their own words:

Quined Games was founded in 2005 by brothers Arno and Frank Quispel in a small town near Rotterdam in the Netherlands. We focus on medium/heavy strategic games with a touch of interaction between players and having a high production value.

In 2007 our famous Master Print series launched, which started as a celebration of the best games in the business by reprinting them. From further on into the series, also newly developed games are published into this series. All of the games have a unique box cover resembling an old hardcover sleeved book, which makes for a beautiful collection of games. Ten years after the start of the series, in 2017, we are proud to add the 20th Master Print game to the series.

I can just confirm how good looking all their games are, especially the book cover design of the box is very well done.

The two 2017 Essen releases from Quined Games have been Agra and Halloween, both games with gorgeous components and art design. Agra has been the more popular game of the two at Essen and there is already a video review available from Man vs. Meeple:

But we have not just ordered this year’s Essen release, we also ordered Vanuatu and Papa Paolo (last year’s releases) and the European edition of Haspelknecht and the Ruhr Valley expansion (both are massively cheaper than the US editions from Capstone Games).


New pre-orders added

In the last few days, we have added a lot of new pre-orders. Here are my highlights:

All these games will be available for sale at Essen, so hopefully, we will have them in stock shortly after the end of the show.

We are adding more pre-orders every day at the moment, our backlog with interesting Essen games is still quite long. So please keep checking out our Essen section on the shop website, there is more to come 🙂
