New game and reprint schedule

In May, we released Vexation (Transamerica/Transeuropa expansion) and Notre Dame. Later this week, we will begin shipping Vikings and Zooloretto. Caylus Magna Carte is finally on a boat and will release in mid-June. The Rio Grande Games version does have the extra bonus card included.

Later in June, we expect If Wishes were Fishes, Ponte del Diavalo, Guatamala Cafe, Space Dealer, and Race the Wind (in very limited numbers). Jambo, Jambo expansion, Cartagena II, Jenseits von Theben, Catch a Cache, and Phoenicia will release for certain in July. I have found some problems with the game mechanic for Sakkara, and am working with the deisgner to resolve them, so release will be delayed until that can be corrected.

We expect to release Carcassonne: travel edition, Manhattan (reprint of the original German version, but in English), Race for the Galaxy, and Khronos (with some changes in the rules and improved comonents) in July. Also in the summer or early fall, we expect reprints of La Citta, El Caballero, and Medieval Merchant, all multi-lingual in English, German, and French). We also plan to reprint Space Beans.

For Essen, we are looking at Power Grid card deck 2, The Great American Railroad Game (no humility here), Lemons & Lemonade, Veritas, Burger Joint, Bonnie & Clyde, Mogul, Amyitis, Key Harvest (new “key” game from Richard Breese), St Pete expansion, and one or two or three or ... others.

New World Carcassonne (no actual title, yet) will likely appear in 2007, and Puerto Rico expansion (finally, from Andreas Seyfarth) will be ready by October, 2008).

All in all, nice schedule, thanks Jay! Looking forward to many of these, and it looks like I will be spending a little more money than I had hoped to this summer ...

I hope the changes in the rules don't rely on the improved components. Or if they do, the specific components are available separately!

Convention plans

The convention season is well under way. We visited Gamex last weekend in LA and had a great time: demoing games, looking at prototypes, playing games, and just chatting with other gamers. Although our games are represented at many conventions as tournaments and demos, including the up-coming Australian Games Expo, I will personally be attending: Gathering of Strangers (June 30 - July 1 in Salt Lake City, Utah), Origins (July 5 - 8 in Columbus, Ohio), WBC (July 29 - August 5 in Lancaster, PA), Essen Game Fair (October 18 - 21 in Essen, Germany), and BGG Con (November 15 - 18 in Irving, TX). I hope to see many of you at these cons. If you are there, please come by and say, “hi!”. It is also a good time to bring any prototypes you want to show me.

Is that the six player Puerto Rico expansion there were rumors about a few years ago?

See http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1476009#1476009

And "The Great American Railroad Game" is the reprint/rethemed Stephensons Rocket.
