Board games - status and plans for the future

We are in 2014 for less than a month and we're already crazy busy with our upcoming projects. But before we talk about them, let's see what has happened since our last post...

Exodus: Proxima Centauri

We though that after the release of the Revised Edition the sales of the first edition in the retail stores would cease. Fortunately this was not the case and the first edition is sold out almost everywhere. 

Now, moving on to the Revised Edition... the attention it got in Essen and afterwards made us sell out as early as November last year. We have only kept enough games to bring to the events we plan to attend in 2014. So, that's again good news.

Sales aside, Exodus has performed well also on BoardGameGeek. It went up the ranks slowly but steadily and entered top 1200 a week ago.

This makes Exodus our top performer and now we can hope that it will break top 1000 by the end of the summer.

Speaking of Exodus, we are working constantly on the expansion due in Spiel '14.


Praetor is our next big project and we're getting really close to the start of production. We have good news for our non-English fans. Praetor will be published not only in English, but also in French, German, Japanese, Romanian, Korean and possibly 3 more languages.

The rules are ready and the translations are almost final. We are waiting for the final numbers from our partners and we hope to release the game in the spring.

The Blog

We have reached an audience of over 10,000 viewers per year and we want to thank all of you who are giving us a piece of your precious time.

It's been 18 months since we're writing for the gaming community and there have been weeks with 3 or 4 posts, but also gaps filled with silence. Therefore, we have decided to do this in a more organized way. We want to let you know what you can expect. We plan to write once a week, unless some out-of-the-ordinary things are happening and we cannot hold back.
