Welcome to our first weekly newsletter of 2019!
We hope you had a great Christmas and wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
This time of year is relatively quiet (compared to November) and it's a great time to have a January Sale! We've updated our Clearance section with existing clearance prices reduced further and lots of new stuff added - grab yourself a bargain while they last! https://www.theboardgamehut.co.uk/clearance-sale.html
This week's new releases (and some other recent highlights from the last couple of weeks) follows below...
Fury of Dracula (4th Edition)
The Count returns with 5 new pre-painted figures!
It is 1898. London has returned to peace for eight years following Count Dracula’s thwarted plans, or so they thought...
In Fury of Dracula, one player is Count Dracula secretly traveling the European countries, turning humans into vampires with his gruesome bite, and laying deadly traps for those hunting him. The Count's opponents are the Hunters who must find the bloodthirsty villain and destroy him before his undead thralls claim the night as their own.
This WizKids print of the classic hidden movement vampire hunt includes a new and improved rule book; larger, poker-sized cards; and fully painted figures for Dracula and each of the Hunters. This updated and improved version of this thematic classic is a perfect addition to any board gamer's shelf
This new, 4th edition of the ever popular Fury of Dracula felt like it would never arrive - I think it was originally due last July and it's finally in stock now!
Arkham Horror 3rd Editon Gamemat
This 3 x 3 slip-resistant gamemat immerses you in the twisted world of Arkham Horror, providing a full space to layout the sprawling labyrinth that is the city of Arkham. Not only that, but the mat is the perfect way to organize your game, with room for the board in the center of the mat, and the various components found in the game on the edges.
When dealing with ancient ones, every resource is precious, every tool a valuable light in the dark. Make sure your investigators have the tools they need to succeed with the Arkham Horror Third Edition Gamemat.
Arkham Horror The Card Game : Return to the Dunwich Legacy
You thought the cases were closed, relegated to a past that was best left forgotten. Beginning with a search for two missing Miskatonic University professors, your inquiries in The Dunwich Legacy launched you on a campaign that led from the decrepit streets of Dunwich to the infamous Clover Club and realms beyond. But questions from these strange investigations still linger, compelling you to board the train to Dunwich once more.
Return to the Dunwich Legacy invites you to re-open your old cases and experience the first full-length campaign for Arkham Horror: The Card Game with fresh eyes as you encounter new challenges and new surprises. Across this expansion’s 81 new scenario cards and 23 new player cards, you’ll explore new locations, face more ghastly treacheries, and enhance your investigator’s abilities as you face even more unspeakable terrors. Finally, Return to the Dunwich Legacy also features a premium box and thirty-two divider cards to conveniently store your complete campaign in one place.
Highlander : The Board Game
Highlander: The Board Game is a quick-playing game in which you duel throughout the ages in order to be the last immortal standing.
In the game, you choose an immortal from the timeless movie (or perhaps even new characters), collect allies, and live entire lives to give you the greatest chance at winning your duels — but you do not get to decide when exactly you will meet your foes on the battlefield. All you can do is prepare in the hope that you are the more powerful!
Wingspan (Preorder, due March 8th)
ingspan is a competitive, medium-weight, card-driven, engine-building board game from Stonemaier Games.
You are bird enthusiasts—researchers, bird watchers, ornithologists, and collectors—seeking to discover and attract the best birds to your aviary. Each bird extends a chain of powerful combinations in one of your habitats (actions). These habitats focus on several key aspects of growth:
--Gain food tokens via custom dice in a birdfeeder dice tower
--Lay eggs using egg miniatures in a variety of colors
--Draw from hundreds of unique bird cards and play them
The winner is the player with the most points after 4 rounds.
If you enjoy Terraforming Mars and Gizmos, we think this game will take flight at your table.
Best Wishes, Russ & Kelly
