Czech Games Edition have announced a couple of exciting items.  First, they will be now handling English distribution of their games.  From their announcement…

Titles that were distributed through Rio Grande Games and Z-Man Games will now be distributed under the CGE logo. We’d like to thank Rio Grande and Z-Man for helping our small, indie company grow so much over the last seven years.

CGE explains that this change will allow them to be more responsive to English-speaking gamers and that a new edition of Tash-Kalar will contain a higher-quality cardboard, new graphics, and a lower price.  There is also an upgrade pack for people that have already purchased Tash-Kalar.  The first shipment will contain Vlaada Chvátil’s Bunny Bunny Moose Moose, Dungeon Lords, Dungeon Petz, and expansions & Vladimír Suchý’s Shipyard and Last Will.

More games will be ready by the end of the year, including our newest game, Alchemists, and the anniversary edition of Dungeon Lords.  Gamers on both sides of the Atlantic should be able to find our games at the same retailers as before. European customers will still be able to get our games through Heidelberger and Esdevium. The English-language editions will now have prices similar to the editions in other languages.

Second, CGE announced Everfrost, an expansion deck for Chvátil’s Tash-Kalar that released last year.  Everfrost will be at Essen next month and contains new powerful beings with a never-ending winter theme and artwork from David Cochard.

The new interesting and unique effects of the Everfrost beings (marked by the little snowflake) introduce a new mechanic – frozen effects. Frozen effects do not have to be performed immediately when the being was summoned, a player may store them for later and use them at the right moment to get a tactical advantage.
