    News Round-Up: Memoir ’44 introduces planes and Teotihuacan gets an expansion

    News - Memoir '44 New Flight Plan

    This week's news is filled with expansions and new releases. 2019 seems to be gearing up to be another year of fantastic gaming. Today's article includes a look at the new plane-related expansion for Memoir '44, as well as digital updates for Mystic Vale and The Castles of Burgundy.

    Memoir '44 Adds Planes

    Memoir '44 has been around for a while now, since 2004 in fact. There are many expansions available and another one is coming out in May 2019: Memoir' 44: New Flight Plan. With New Flight Plan players can deploy air units such as fighters, fighter-bombers and bombers to support their ground forces on the battlefield. The expansion will provide many new tactical opportunities and is compatible with existing scenarios.

    There will be 21 new scenarios included in the expansion along with 16 plane miniatures. If you are a fan of Memoir '44 (or just a fan of aeroplanes) and want something to liven up your Memoir '44 game play experience then this is something that you must check out come May.

    Two-Player Action in World War II

    Undaunted: Normandy is a two-player deck-building game set in World War II. Each player takes control of American or German forces and fight through a series of of missions that were critical to the outcome of the war. The game has a strong narrative and historically thematic. Undaunted is a campaign style game based around the US 30th infantry division and the German division with both players controlling their forces with a deck of cards. Players must manage troops, reinforcements and casualties as they battle through the campaigns.

    Undaunted gives you a tension-filled, faster feeling war game. Artwork is provided by Roland McDonald, designed by David Thompson and Trevor Benjamin (War Chest) and Osprey Games as the publishers. Undaunted is due to be released in August 2019 and is something that war gamers and any fan of historical games must be sure to check out.

    Lets Get Digital

    Mystic Vale was released as an app in February 2019. Less than a month after its release the app is getting an expansion, Mystic Vale: Vale of Magic. The expansion comes with 54 new advancement cards and 18 vale cards. That is a total of 72 new cards that can be added in to the base game. With a host of advancement cards, vale cards and expansion content already published for the physical game it seems that Nomad Games are supporting the digital game as well. I can imagine that there will be a host of new content released as expansions in the future to mirror the physical game content. Any fans of the digital version of Mystic Vale will be please with this news and the added replay-ability to the game.

    Staying on the digital apps theme, the next game to be released as an app is the much loved tile-laying game by Stefan Feld, The Castles of Burgundy. The Castles of Burgundy is a fantastic game, albeit in need of a graphical overhaul, Digidiced UG have now released the app version of The Castles of Burgundy and it looks fantastic. Digidiced seem to have done a fantastic job of bringing a much loved classic to digital. One to check out if you are in to apps and looking for a solid, classic, tile placement game from the one and only Stefan Feld.

    Three Expansions for the Three Ts

    Teotihuacan: City of Gods, the game that everyone pronounces wrong, has been a massive hit for a lot of gamers since its release towards the back end of 2018 and it is getting an expansion. Teotihuacan: Late Preclassic Period is set to debuted at GenCon in 2019. Late Preclassic is a modular expansion containing asymmetrical player powers, a fourth temple allowing players to unlock permanent abilities, all new engineering techniques and plans for beautifying the central Pyramid of the Sun which offer new challenges and ways to play. All the modules are compatible with each other and can be played with the base game individually or together.

    Terra Mystica, a very highly-ranked and loved civilisation area control game released in 2012 is getting an expansion called Merchants designed by James Wolfpacker. The expansion will contain ships (for most factions) and a new building called the shipyard (to produce the ships). Factions will now be able to send their ships to other player's buildings to gain victory points and resources.

    Factions that receive the merchants can charge power, just like is an opponent has built next to them. Terra Mystica is a very tactical game and the expansion adds a further level of tactical movement to the game. The expansion will contain a player board expansion for the factions to allow them to upgrade the trading post to the new shipyard. The exansion will also contain new special actions for the building and movement of ships. The expansion will also come with new favours, round tiles, bonus tiles, town tiles and power tiles. Expected release is Essen 2019.

    Terraforming Mars, A card drafting, set collection, tile-laying strategy game by designer Jacob Fryxelius released in 2016. Terraforming Mars is getting its fifth expansion, Turmoil. Turmoil brings new corporations, new projects, and a new type of card called Global Events, such as dust storms, riots and increase in demand for alloy. Turmoil is planned to be released at Essen 2019.

    Ever since the lockdown started, I have used Zatu a lot to get a dozen or more we can play together as a family. The choice and service has been impeccable throughout, and next day delivery has been spot on. I cannot recommend Zatu enough.

    I found Zatu games through Board Game Prices and they were the cheapest for the two games I wanted. Their reasonably easily navigated site offered a discount for three games and induced me to make an additional purchase. Order was placed at about 4pm with delivery next day. Early the following day a large brown box duly arrived filled with lots of protective packaging and I had my games as promised! So to recap - pleasant purchase experience, effective service and timely delivery - all that was asked for! I will definitely be checking Zatu games again when I want more games! - Well Done!

    Excellent. Large range if competitively priced games. Ordered a few times now and despite the recent pandemic, the latest orders (like all of them) arrived very fast.
