Let me start this post off by stating that the July store update will STILL happen in July! So all of you gamers waiting for the Quacks bits just need to hold out a tiny bit longer!

Edit --> And to clear up some confusion based on questions I'm getting below and in GeekMail, let me list off the GeekUp sets that will go live in the upcoming July update (which will also be at Gen Con):
- base Quacks
- Altiplano
- Underwater Cities
- Detective
- Endeavor: Age of Sail
- Colt Express

But here's the quick summary of two very exciting releases for the Geek store:
1) Sneak peak of the Artists' Series 3 (Pre-orders to open on Friday, July 26th)
2) Pre-release of six extra GeekUp sets available for a pre-release sale at Gen Con!


BGG Artist Series 3

If you're not familiar with the BGG Artist series, it's a series of high-quality art prints created by amazing artists of some of our favorite board games. We reached out to them, asking if they'd like to create an illustration based on a popular game, done in the style of a 1950's to 1960's travel poster.

We launched Series 1 in 2017:



We then launched Series 2 in 2018:



Now, in 2019, we're ready to start previewing Series 3!

The first illustration to debut was created by the very talented Anca Gavril! She's done some great work for BGG on our convention materials, as well as several BoardGameTables.com games such as On Tour, Q.E., and Bites. Now, she's gifted us with this beautiful take on Gloomhaven!



We'll be debuting one new print each day this week, July 22nd-July 25th, culminating with a final super cool addition to the series, along with the opening of preorders on Friday, July 26th. During the preorder window, you'll be able to order prints from any series in a variety of sizes (24 x 36, 20 x 30, 16 x 24, and 12 x 18). Once the preorder window closes, it will take 1-2 months to receive the prints. At that time, we'll have all prints available for purchase at the 12x18 size.

We hope you enjoy this first print, and look forward to showing you the rest! The rest of the debut announcements this week will be coming from

Pre-Released GeekUp bits available at Gen Con!


If you are attending Gen Con this year, the Geek store in the exhibit hall will have a special extra six GeekUp sets available for sale. We air freighted in an advanced shipment, and the rest of the shipment will go up for sale in the September store update.

So let me reiterate that statement --> If you can attend Gen Con, you will be able to buy six GeekUP sets EARLY. They are not exclusive to that show and those six sets will be available for general sale in September. But if you would like to pick up these very exciting sets a little early, come find us in booth 1349 in the main exhibit hall!

Wingspan
105 bits for all of the food tokens


Burgle Bros
84 bits for all of the stealth, hack, alarm tokens and more!


Fireball Island
36 Treasure tokens for placing around the island


Targi
Out first mixed-medium set! Plastic tiles for the goods and glorious metal bits for the 1st player marker, VP tokens, and gold coins.


Seasons
Back in stock for Gen Con!


And.... drumroll please......

Quacks of Quedlinburg: The Herb Witches' Expansion
All of the bits needed for the 5th player, the 6-value pumpkins, the Fool's Weed, and the 15 Witches' pennies

I assume the set for the base game of Quacks will be available as well? Only the expansion is noted in the post.

That Targi currency looks like it doubles as a throwing weapon. Never played it, but now I want to!

Will the Targi bits include the Water and Action tokens from the expansion or are these just bits for the base game?

I've been eagerly awaiting the new print series. The art on this first reveal is fantastic, even if I think the game itself is a snooze.

The Targi bits will just be for the base set, so no Water or Action tokens. But I will add the Targi expansion to my request list

Hopefully that Targi expansion reprint is coming soon. One of my favorite 2 player games! Can't wait to get the upgraded bits.

Will the Burgle Bros bits fit in the box? It's a pretty tight fit with the standard components.

That Gloomhaven print is awesome!

Looking forward to the others over the next few days.

I’ll echo that comment above (and my previous comments) that I’d love these available on T-shirts. Price them at $20 and you’d sell a bunch I’d think!

It's pretty cool that the Gloomhaven poster has a hidden message in it. (Don't click the spoiler if you'd rather work out what it says for yourself.)

I don't know how the rest of the world feels but each and every one of the Geekup packs are KILLING IT! Those things are so great! I don't know why they aren't an industry standard at this point.

Beautiful Gloomhaven print. And hopefully, some nice Gencon attendee out there will pickup an extra Wingspan bits set to perhaps help someone get one who isnt going whistle

Don't worry! We are bringing a small fraction of the Quacks inventory to Gen Con. I think it more likely we might run out at Gen Con then run out in the Geek store.

They will also go live with the upcoming July update. I'm going to edit the text at the top of this posting to make that clearer in general - sorry for the confusion!
