Impressions, the organizer of Free RPG Day, has released their shipping list for November 17th which includes many RPG books and the like, but also a couple of board games and related items.  For new releases we have the following:


While it seemed like forever given that it funded in April of 2014, the new edition of Catacombs will be hitting store shelves this month so everyone can finally obtain this fantasy dexterity game with updated art.  No mention of the expansion from the kickstarter yet so look for that in a later release.

Also hitting store shelves will be the latest issue of Spielbox Magazine, issue #5 of 2015, which will come with the following promos: A special card to “The Rivals of Catan” for the Big Game (Kosmos), 3 special cards and a small plate called Flatiron to New York 1901 (Blue Orange Games), and 4 new cards to “The Game” – called “Game on Fire”.

Lastly we look forward to releases in the future with Spielbox issue #6 coming in January and promising a card for Dominion Adventure as well as four Abductor packs to expand the solo game Hostage Negotiator.
