We have a LOT of new stuff listed in the Geek Store! While it's a little too early to get some of the stuff we picked up at Spiel ready, we still got a bunch of stuff in over the past month.

First off, we're opening a new category of items in the Geek Store, game bits! We've started off with translucent plastic cubes and gems in an assortment of 10 colors, as well as some really cool metal cubes! If this type of product does well in the store, we plan to expand into more of this sort of thing: meeples, more discs cubes, blank chits, etc. Good stuff for you game designers out there, and for upgrading components in your favorite games!



Secondly, we have a couple more games from Asian publishers: Art of War and Joraku.

Thirdly, we have a whole slew of the promos the Geek Store is best known for, including some heavy hitters! As always, just check out the Latest Additions section on the home page of the Geek Store to check out all the new stuff!

Metal cubes look perfect for Silverton.

I have gold and silver, but copper is always a bit elusive.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

I'm a sucker for the idea of using trick-taking mixed with other mechanics, so I couldn't say no to Joraku. And I snuck in the extra Mysterium cards, even if kind of unnecessary, for good measure.

Yay I'm glad I was able to get some Escape promos! The last time they were offered, they were sold out in an hour and I didn't get any. Glad to see them back!

Finally got ahold of the Island queenie! Hopefully we'll see TtR: Orient Express and the Time Machine Colt Express promo soon.

Also, if those plastic cubes are the same size as the ones in Pandemic... 10 diseases! So madness.

Are the metal cubes ferrous? Does a magnet stick to them?

WOW! Only last week did I finally break down and buy the Quest expansion for Escape, because I wanted to use the Ghost chamber for Halloween gaming, and, in preparation for the process, look at these missing promos here on this site. Suddenly, BAMPF! - here they are! Weird and wonderful.

(What's stranger still is that the Queenie's offer considerably more content for pennies less what I paid for the Expansion after discounts, which is why it took me so long to decide to buy it.)

Very cool, I wish I could think of more games to spruce up! Hopefully you keep these things in stock so when I think of other games I can buy more!

Maybe Archon: Glory & Machination's color problem might be solved?

I must have missed something - where does the term "Queenie" come from, and what does it mean?

I was thinking about that, although the real issue is telling the two things apart when it's a requirement printed on a card or on the board, when you don't have the opposite one right next to it to compare it to.

It's Queen Games' cute name for mini-expansions to their games.

No, the metal isn't ferrous.

Questions:

The Elysium promos are strictly alt-artwork, right? Is there an image somewhere that compares the artwork between what you get in the box and on these promo cards?

How many cards are in the Mysterium promo?
