What has arrived this week?

A busy few days are behind us and I have finally a bit of time to post a quick update about what has arrived in the last two days.

First, the restocks – back in stock are:

And the new arrivals:

 

Top 5 December

December was a busy end to the year despite the disappointment of quite a number of delays. Here is a look at our bestseller and the hot pre-orders:

Top 5 Sales

1) KeyForge: Call of the Archons (Starter Set and Decks)
2) Crown of Emara
3) The Fox in the Forest
4) The Quacks of Quedlinburg
5) Arboretum (2018 Edition)

KeyForge was by far our bestseller in December and it was great to get a restock of the Starter Sets in a couple of weeks before Christmas. Crown of Emara has slowly picked up steam since Essen. The first few weeks after Essen nobody seemed to care about it, but now with more and more people talking about it the orders started coming in on a regular basis. The Fox in the Forest and Arboretum are both perfect Christmas games: they look great, don’t cost the world and have family-friendly themes. The English edition of Quacks appeared out of nowhere but was a hit from day one.

Top 5 Pre-Orders

1) Underwater Cities
2) Men At Work
3) A Feast for Odin: The Norwegians
4) New Frontiers
5) Bad Bones

Pre-orders are always a bit slower in the time before Christmas because everybody is hunting Christmas presents and is more looking for games that are in stock. So the pre-order for the Underwater Cities reprint had an easy time to get to the top of our pre-order leaderboard. Men at Work was one of the games that didn’t make it before Christmas, so these orders were originally meant for Christmas. The Feast for Odin expansion is very popular since the Essen board game show and New Frontiers got a late boost by the first Youtube videos appearing online during the Christmas holidays. Bad Bones is a small surprise because this new game from the Magic Maze publisher Sit Down! got a bit buried in the avalanche of new announcements before and after Essen.

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.
