A big haul of new games and restocks this week. Lots of expansions for Settlers, and Carcassonne and a bunch of new releases as well.

New Games

Altiplano - The Traveller - the first expansion for Altiplano (one of our favourite games of the last few years). 

Carpe Diem - Stefan Feld's 2018 Essen release. The theme is a little thin and there have been some questionable decisions in the graphic design but the game is superb.

D&D Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica Maps & Miscellanythe companion the the recently released  D&D Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica.


Newton - we played this at Cancon and really enjoyed it (played it twice in fact). It is a little on the complex side with a lot going on and is a bit of a "point salad" game, but, if you like that sort of thing, and we certainly do, you will probably really enjoy this game.

Robin Hood and the Merry Men - a semi-co-operative game that is getting a lot of attention. You are one of the Merry Men trying to prove your mettle and challenge Robin Hood as the leader of the famous band of outlaws, but you have to work with the other players to ensure that together you do not lose the game, while proving yourself a worthy of successor to Robin Hood.


Betrayal at Balders Gate - a retheming of Betrayal at the House on the Hill, set in the D&D universe.

Betrayal at the House on the Hill - a scenario based semi co-operative game where one of the players turns out to be the source of the evil.

Betrayal at the House on the Hill: Widows Walk. An expansion for  Betrayal at the House on the Hill.

Finally we have been able to restock a few more of the Carcassonne expansions:

Carcassonne - Bridges, Castles & Bazaar (Exp. #8)

Carcassonne - Count, King & Robber (Exp. #6)

Carcassonne - Hills and Sheep (Exp. #9)

And some of the Catan expansions are now back in stock:

Catan Cities and Knights exp. - mitigates the role of the robber and introduces a semi-cooperative element.

My First Carcassonne - Get them started early!
