Hi Matthieu.

I hope you have time for a short meeting on Sunday morning - I have made an attempt to book using the excelent Iello meeting booking system - I wish more companies would do this.

Zombie 15', Guardians and Hare & Tortoise are the games that I would be most grateful of receiving review copies if available then please. But of course if you have other games you would prefer I reviewed I am happy to do all I can to ensure IELLO games get good cover on the website.

I hope you, your family and all at Iello are well, healthy and looking forward to another great Spiel, Essen.

Very best regards and thanks

Your friend

chris

KING OF
NEW YORK

THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED FOLLOW-UP TO
RICHARD GARFIELD'S KING OF TOKYO!

 

There's always something happening in the city that never sleeps. Maybe it's the lights, maybe it's the energy, or maybe it's the giant monsters trying to demolish the place! While still keeping the core ideas of King of Tokyo, King of New York introduces lots of new ways to play. Stomp on buildings in each of New York's boroughs. But beware: Every roll of the dice might mean that your monster feels the OUCH, as military units open fire. Will you grab the spotlight, and become a celebrity Superstar? Or will you become the defender of the city, and befriend Lady Liberty?

World of Yo-Ho is a fantasy game of high adventure and battle on pirate seas! It's a new type of post-digital game, combining the pleasure of board games to the interactive mechanisms of a video game.
