Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving. Pratchett

I know that more info about the game is coming soon.

Realm of Wonder will be released in Essen as a 9-language edition.

We played the latest prototype and I was impressed. The graphics and miniatures are certainly making it a positive experience. It is a fun adventure game with 5 missions, one mission per game plus several ways of winning the game. The revolving rings of the board give move paths available for the players and this is a way to spoil plans of your opponents... You have magic cards that grant you various powers, your character has its own special ability. In short, you move from area to area using movement points played from cards, discover what is on hidden tower cards, fight with monsters and other players... You build fortresses, visit places that have special magic powers... Also, each game scenario requires that you collect different things, which changes the game focus quite profoundly and makes it fresh each time. I will try to write more later.

Here you can read an early review
http://www.gamesgazette.co.uk/gg/main.php?p=content/Board%20...

I posted it today as a link - awaiting admin acceptance.

That was a very good overview of the game . In it you write: "REALMS of WONDER will soon be available in the UK from an exclusive English distributor."
Do you know who the distributor is and where we could pre-order this?
Thanks.

So when can I get it in Finland? I loved this game in the "can play more than 1 game in an evening" category. Not that I dont love a good game of Diplomacy etc., but being able to play several games at once is nice sometimes. Please share when it's coming out once anyone knows.

Preordered too. At that price it seems an absolute steal.

What about a release in United States? Is it planned to be sold over here? If so, is the same timeframe?
(fingers crossed)
