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

Scythe and Terraforming Mars are going digital

Scythe and Terraforming Mars have both been massively successful board games in the last couple of years. Now both of them are going digital: Asmodee Digital has confirmed the releases of Scythe and Terraforming Mars on Steam.

Q2 means that we have to wait a bit for Terraforming Mars. But Scythe is much closer and the Steam Store shows a release date of Q1. And Asmodee Digital already showed gameplay of Scythe on Twitch:

New Terraforming Mars expansion announced

Stronghold Games and Fryxgames have announced a new expansion for Terraforming Mars:

Prelude is a small expansion that lets you kickstart your terraforming! It focuses on the early stages of Mars colonization and tells the background story of the corporations. When choosing corporation and starting hand, each player also draws 4 Prelude cards, and chooses 2 of them to boost their corporation. The expansion opens up powerful starting combos and increases player asymmetry.

The release for Terraforming Mars: Prelude is planned for Summer 2018, with a prerelease at Origins in June.

Terraforming Mars: Venus Next Update

The Venus Next expansion for Terraforming Mars was expected to be available in November after the end of the Essen show.

Unfortunately, this didn’t work out and the expansion hasn’t been released yet. We have talked to our supplier today and the new UK release date is in early January.

We are very sorry for this delay. If you have ordered other games together with Terraforming Mars: Venus Next and you would like to arrange a part-delivery of the available games please contact us.
