Release date updates

We have done a bit of research today to look which games will be available before Christmas. So far we have no new details about pre-Christmas releases, but we unfortunately found a few games that definitely won’t make it before Christmas:

  • Reykholt
  • Aeon’s End Legacy
  • Unlock! Exotic Adventures
  • Victorian Masterminds
  • Duelosaur Island
  • Dinosaur Island Expansion

All these games are now pushed back to January.

We also got an update regarding the Gloomhaven reprint and it doesn’t sound good: it also has been moved back (again) and now will arrive in the UK in January.

I’m very sorry for these constant delays. Hopefully we will have better news soon!

Half-time report

We are in the middle of another very busy week with new games flooding in. We have finished today’s packing, so there is a bit of time for a quick look at what is new this week.

New in stock are:

  • Adrenaline: Team Play DLC
  • Command and Colors: Tricorne Expansion 1
  • Judge Dredd: Block War
  • Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr
  • Mini Rails
  • Tulip Bubble

  • Railroad Rivals – Premium Edition
  • The King’s Guild
  • Neon Gods
  • Quartermaster General: The Cold War
  • Architects of the West Kingdom
  • Trade on the Tigris

Tomorrow will see the release of Keyforge and The River and we are expecting another delivery from Germany for Friday, but it isn’t 100% sure yet.

Top 5 October

Another month has gone, time to have a look at the bestsellers of October.

The Top 5 in Sales are:

  1. Chronicles of Crime
  2. Gizmos
  3. Great Western Trail: Rails to the North (German Edition)
  4. Welcome To ….
  5. Altiplano: the Traveller

Chronicles of Crime is the first Murder Mystery game that uses Virtual Reality to let the players visit the game locations. Gizmos continues the good run of Phil Walker-Harding, who with Gingerbread House has  another new game out at the moment. Great Western Trail: Rails to the North is in the Top 5 for the second month in a row. Altiplano: the Traveller is the first expansion for the bag building game Altiplano.

Top 5 in Pre-Orders:

  1. Root: Riverfolk Expansion
  2. Root
  3. A Feast for Odin: The Norwegians
  4. Reykholt
  5. Key Flow

Root and the Riverfolk expansion have dominated the pre-orders in October. The first edition of Root sold out quickly, but the reprint is supposed to arrive in January/February together with the expansion. A Feast for Odin is a very popular game, so it’s no surprise that the expansion has made it into our Top 5. Reykholt is the new game by Uwe Rosenberg and as all his games, gamers seem to like them all.  Key Flow is a new card driven game based on the Keyflower.

 

Week 42: New releases confirmed

This week’s new releases have now confirmed and arriving this week are:

Sidereal Confluence will also make a comeback, but stock is very limited and already sold out to pre-orders. We are hoping to get more copies in before the end of the month, but have no confirmation for a second delivery yet.

Top 5 August

August is the month of the school holidays, which is normally the time when we sell more family games and smaller games good for taking on a holiday.

This explains the two top games of our Top 5 in sales for August:

1) Ganz schön clever
2) Azul
3) Terraforming Mars: Prelude
4) Downforce: Danger Circuit
5) Skies Above the Reich

In our Top 5 Pre-Orders you can already spot two announced Essen releases. For September I expect the Essen releases to take over the Pre-Order Top 5.

Top 5 Pre-Orders
1) Arboretum (2018 Edition)
2) Teotihuacan City of Gods
3) Terraforming Mars: The Colonies
4) Altiplano: the Traveller
5) Forbidden Sky

New pre-orders online

We have added the pre-orders for five new exciting games/expansion:

This week’s new releases are online

The UK releases for week 24 have been confirmed and are now online and available to order.

For tomorrow we are expecting:

For today or tomorrow, we are also expecting a small delivery of Raids, the new game from Iello that had a pre-release at the UK Games Expo.

 

Arboretum comes back

Renegade Game Studios will release a new edition of Arboretum, a card game originally published back in 2015 by Z-Man Games:

Arboretum is a strategy card game for 2-4 players, aged 10 and up, that combines set collection, tile-laying and hand management while playing in about 25 minutes. Players try to have the most points at the end of the game by creating beautiful garden paths for their visitors.

Release date for the new edition is autumn 2018. The rulebook will be unchanged, but the artwork will get an overhaul including support for colourblind players.

March Top 5

Another month is gone, time to have a quick look at the Top 5 in Sales and pre-orders.

Top 5 Sales:

  1. Castell
  2. Civilization (2018)
  3. Dungeon Alliance
  4. Biosphere
  5. Meeple Circus

Castell was another hit from Renegade Game Studios and it looks like they can’t do anything wrong at the moment. Civilization was the surprise of the month, because it is still the same old game (but a very good one) without any attempts of a redesign. Dungeon Alliance is another successful Kickstarter hampered at retail by a lack of available stock. Biosphere is a monster of a game (300 dice included), but has earned good feedback at Essen and is now finally available in larger numbers. Meeple Circus is another Essen release that took a while to finally arrive in the UK.

Top 5 Pre-Orders

  1. Arkwright (2nd Edition)
  2. The Sands of Time
  3. Century – Eastern Wonders
  4. Coimbra (German Edition)
  5. Rising 5: Runes of Asteros

The first edition of Arkwright has been a success, so the second edition topping the Pre-orders for March is no surprise. The Sands of Time is the new Spielworxx game, always highly sought after by fans of heavy-weight games. Eastern Wonders is the second game in the Century trilogy, it will be interesting to see what the difference to the first one is and if it will be a similar success for Plan B Games. Coimbra is another Plan B Games and the new Eggertspiele release after their hits Great Western Trail and Heaven & Ale. Unfortunately, so far only available to pre-order in the German Edition. Rising 5: Runes of Asteros is a cooperative deduction game and another game has been delayed for a while now.
