Welcome to our weekly newsletter!

There's just 8 sleeps to go until Christmas! 

Royal Mail suggests a last posting date of Thursday 20th December - but we would recommend getting your Christmas orders in as early as possible, and no later than midday on Wednesday 19th December to avoid disappointment

We will be posting as normal up until Friday 21st December, and then we'll be coming in on Friday the 28th December to ship orders received over Christmas. Then normal service will be resumed on Wednesday 2nd January 2019.

As this is our last Newsletter before Christmas we'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and custom this year and we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 

This week's new releases which will all be in stock in a few days (just in time for Christmas) and are available to order now are...

Duelosaur Island

Duelosaur Island is built around a clever hand-management mechanism. Each card in the game serves three potential purposes. They contain the DNA sequences for dinosaurs you could create, the blueprints for attractions you can build, and certain actions that you can take by discarding them. Do you create the dinosaur on the top of the card to attract guests to your park? Or do you build the attraction on the bottom of the card, which can add to a player's hand-limit, income, and end-game victory points? Or do you discard the card to combine DNA towards creating another dinosaur?
Duelosaur Island comes with five new full-color "DNA dice". You can mix and match dice between Dinosaur Island and Duelosaur Island for even more variability in both games, such as the new security symbol that can appear on dice to upgrade your security level instantly!


Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles Starter Set

Battlestar Galactica: Starship Battles is a starship combat miniature game created by the same designers as Wings of Glory and Sails of Glory. The game includes ready-to-play, painted and assembled miniatures, with a special base to support its unique game mechanisms.
In the game, players take control of one or more Colonial and Cylon ships and face each other in furious dogfights and many other different kinds of missions. The game features innovative mechanisms allowing players to simulate space combat using simple and intuitive rules to imitate the unique dynamics of the battles in the TV show.
Battlestar Galactica: Starship Battles includes both "Classical and "Reimagined" settings as the publisher's license with Universal Brand Development includes both the classic series, created by Glen A. Larson in the late 1970s, and the re-imagined series developed by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, which aired until 2010.


Flamme Rouge : Meteo Expansion

Flamme Rouge: Meteo, a small expansion for Flamme Rouge, introduces players to weather phenomenons such as storms, side winds, and head winds.


After establishing themselves in Honshu, the Lords and Ladies head north to Hokkaido. Beholding Hokkaido’s mountainous landscape, they see that expansion on this land will prove to be a greater challenge than before.
Hokkaido is the second map-building card game in the Nippon series, bringing new ideas and mechanisms to the first design Honshu. A game of Hokkaido consists of twelve rounds, each divided into two separate phases. Each player must expand their personal map to maximize their scoring possibilities.
