Alea Revised Big Box Series RSS Feed

This series is not a family in the BGG database due to a policy requirement that families have three members, and only two games have been announced. The track record of alea is such that we can be confident this will be a proper BGG family soon.

alea was started as a new label within Ravensburger in 1999. Each of their games in a particular sized box is numbered in order of publication, yielding their Revised Big Box Series, the Alea Big Box Series, the Alea Medium Box Series, the Alea Small Box Series, and the Alea Very Small Box Series.

In April 2019 (Germany)/September 2019 (North America) alea launched a new line, similar in size to their old big box line, but featuring a new art aesthetic and numbering system. The first game released in this series was an updated Las Vegas and Las Vegas Boulevard combination, Las Vegas Royale. German press coverage of this indicates that this new series might be the going-forward design for alea games, but its not perfectly clear if this is certain.

The "revised big box" games and their respective year of initial publication:

  1. Las Vegas Royale (2019)
  2. The Castles of Burgundy (2019)
  3. The Castles of Tuscany (2020)
  4. Puerto Rico (2020)
  5. Carpe Diem (2020)
The cover art for games in this series share a common layout and design:
