We’ve had a busy few months here at The Games Store. We’ve moved to a much bigger store, five times bigger to be exact, we’re open more hours – 7 days a week, up to 10pm Monday, Tuesday and Friday – and we’re running a lot more events than ever before, now all in house. One of the things that’s suffered during all the changes is this website. Adding content during this busy period has not been a huge priority, and therefore it’s been pretty dormant.

We’ve been discussing ways we can make the website more interesting and relevant and we’ve decided to start adding more gaming content. This will allow you to see what kind of things we get up to in the shop, and hopefully encourage you to come on down and play. It also gives an outlet to the talented writers and videographers we have in our community.

If you have some content that you think would be appropriate for the site, feel free to drop me a line at karl@thegamesstore.com. We’re always looking for new reviews, discussion pieces, strategy, tournament reports, videos etc.

And if you want to see what’s happening at our games club, why not join up at https://www.facebook.com/groups/thegamesstore/? We’re always happy to welcome new or experienced gamers to our group, we enjoy a wide variety of games and we always have people happy to play.

Some new boardgames and Pokemon sets in this week.

In Samurai Spirit you and your fellow samurai companions are the only standing obstacle between one frightened village and a full horde of blood-thirsty villains. The fight seems unfair as the seven of you might not seem to measure up to the dozens of enemies who want to slice you to pieces — but this comparison doesn’t take into account your strong combat skills and an efficient team spirit that binds your samurai squad enough to face the threat. Above all else, when everything seems desperate and lost, your enemies will discover that inside each of you lies a true beast, a warrior spirit ready to unleash its full power! 1-7 players, cooperative, £15.99

In the drawing game Loony Quest, players study challenging level cards, then try to replicate the outline to meet targets and avoid obstacles on their tracing sheets. Once finished, players place their sheets on top of the level card to see whether the drawings line up with the targets they meant to hit — or avoid. Largely inspired by video games, Loony Quest players discover various worlds, play with 3D and 2D levels, run into loony monsters — Loonies — and big bosses, trigger special stages, collect bonuses, use penalties on opponents, and gather as many Xperience points as possible to win. 2-5 players, £19.99

One Night Ultimate Werewolf Daybreak is a fast game for 3-7 players in which everyone gets a hidden role, each with a special ability. (No plain “villagers” here!) In the course of a single morning, your village will decide who among them is a werewolf…because all it takes is finding one werewolf to win! Daybreak includes eleven new roles, and it can be played on its own or combined with the original One Night Ultimate Werewolf game; when combined, you can have up to ten players in a single game. 3-7 players, £19.99

In Salerno players take their choice of the Western Allies or the German forces and recreate the operations that took the war to the Italian mainland.
Two medium sized mapsheets containing three areas connected by movement tracks join three operations designed to push the German armies out of Italy. The system uses a chit pull combat method that enhances the challenge of combat. Limited knowledge of exact enemy strength make planning combat an undetermined affair, as it always is, and the job of commander more demanding than ever. 2 player wargame, £36.99

Fleets: The Pleiad Conflict is set in 3400 AD, where mankind has colonized the Pleiad star cluster and mighty corporations vie for control and influence. Each player equips fleets with escort ships and upgrades and uses them to control star systems for VPs. Diplomatic leverage, cunning, and brute force will determine the victor. 2-4 players, £47.99

Two new boxed editions of Pokemon TCG are also available, Groudon and Kyogre, just £9.99 each

New in the shop this week we have Enemy Coast Ahead: The Dambuster Raid from GMT. In Enemy Coast Ahead, you command a newly formed Lancaster squadron assigned the task of breaching the dams in the Ruhr Valley. Not only are you presented with a variety of decisions, you play the invisible hand of fate as your crews endure the hazards of a dangerous night raid. Play the campaign and you get to organize and train the squadron, or play the historical scenarios. It’s suitable for solitaire or team play and costs £43.99.

Also in this week we have the Magic Holiday Boxes from Wizards. You get Four Khans of Tarkir booster packs, a beautiful storage box that can hold more than 2,000 Magic cards, twenty Khans of Tarkir basic lands, six illustrated plastic dividers, a sticker sheet for customizing the dividers and an alternative-art Sultai Charm from the Khans of Tarkir set. All this for only £16.99!

We’ve also had a restock of Warhammer Conquest starters. This game has been incredibly popular and we got the last four copies from the distributor!
