Buried under new Games

We have been a bit quiet in the last couple of days, but we had a reason for it: we have been buried under a flood of new games. So far we have received 16 new games/expansions with the two biggest hits (Marvel Champions and Tapestry / both Friday) still coming.

Here a quick look at what we have got so far:

They barely fit all on one photo…

If you had a pre-order in place for any of these or for Marvel Champions or Tapestry and haven’t received your payment request yet: please check your spam folder.

Mage Knight: Ultimate Edition delayed

The Mage Knight: Ultimate Edition was expected to get released before Christmas.

But there have been production issues and it looks like the game has been delayed and pushed back to the start of 2019:

Yes it has been delayed and that is because we were not satisfied with certain components. We do apologize but we want this to be a good project.

Plus when one envisions what the game will look like you see things that can be improved upon after actually seeing a sample – and that is what we did. Making sure the trays work. Making sure the components are the best quality that is affordable, etc.

Betrayal Legacy coming in November

Wizkids Games has announced the release of Betrayal Legacy for November.

As announced last year, Betrayal Legacy was developed by Rob Daviau (see “‘Betrayal Legacy’ by Rob Daviau”) and it is built on the same themes and mechanics as the original game. In this version, the actions of the players during each game leaves a permanent mark on the infamous “House,” ultimately resulting in a unique re-playable version of the game at the end of the campaign. The storyline of the legacy campaign reveals the history of the house, told over a series of generations, that tells how it became a focus for the unnatural and supernatural forces that haunt it.
