It's just one month since Essen Spiel, we're just about catching our breath again, and... wait a minute... the pre-Christmas rush has started already! So lets have a look at what's new in the US.
The huge container full of Codenames hit the US warehouses two weeks ago. This means that distributors have them as well some of the retailers.
Since Codenames is a word-based game, it is essential to be playable in your native language, right? We are aware of this fact, so we are dealing with many language partners right now.
To our loyal players of Tash-Kalar: Nethervoid and Galaxy Trucker: Missions who purchased the first-print edition of these games from us at Essen Spiel 2015, or via a retailer who purchased them from us at Essen.
Some of you have contacted us about a slight printing error on some of the cards and also the thinner cardboard of the Tash-Kalar: Nethervoid tokens (see pictures).
We would like to apologize for this inconvenience caused by our printer. Even though the games are still perfectly playable, we feel you deserve the best quality components.

Gosh, time goes fast. It's only been a week since we met you in Essen and we haven't stopped yet. First of all, thanks a lot all to you guys for such a great atmosphere during the show. For stopping by and saying "Hello", giving us feedback, playing the new games and having a lot of fun doing so. Also for buying our games, and then coming back to get them signed, taking them back home, unpacking them and playing them again!
It was wonderful to see you trying The Prodigals Club and the new edition of Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization. For those who want to see how to play it, Paul Grogan from Gaming Rules! has prepared a video.
A huge thing happened one year ago! On 29th September 2014, digital Galaxy Trucker landed on iOS devices and a great adventure began.
Since then, the app was translated into seven languages, adapted to another three platforms, and the players all around the galaxy enjoyed the funny campaign and unique multiplayer missions.
Join in the party and wish the app a happy 1st birthday by sending us something nice on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #bestwishesGTdigital. You have until the 6th October. The 10 most original messages will receive a Galaxy Trucker app promo code (iOS or Windows Phone) and a T-shirt.

2015-08-24Announcing new games for Essen 2015
Did you know that this year, Spiel'15 is earlier in the month than usual? We do! So it's high time to bring you a preview of the new games and expansions coming out this season.
In the new Tash-Kalar expansion, Nethervoid, you will summon demons from another plane of existence via a demonic gateway. Codenames shows you how a party game can be great fun for gamers and non-gamers. The Prodigals Club will teach you how spend all your money, lose friends and political influence and have fun doing it. Through the Ages: A new Story of Civilization combines the classic and proven mechanics with beautiful new art work and rebalanced cards for more gaming enjoyment. And finally, Galaxy Trucker: Missions – inspired by the digital app – adds a new cool twist to the base game!
2015-08-23Codenames language versions
As we promised last week, we have some more information about Codenames and it's different language versions!
Thanks to the success of the game, our international partners are interested in publishing the game in their language, so we can confirm that you will able to play Codenames in German (Heidelberger), Czech (MINDOK), Spanish (Devir) and Italian (Cranio Creations).
Due to popular demand, all the English copies of Codenames, which we publish ourselves have already gone to distributors and retailers, and we are planning the next print run.
More languages are being negotiated with our partners in other countries, so stay tuned. And who knows, it may happen that a version with a language everyone speaks will follow, too…
2015-08-12CODENAMES: in stores soon!
First, we want to thank all of you for a fantastic and warm reception of our new game: Codenames. The pre-release at GenCon went really great and your interest was just outstanding.
Since GenCon we've received many nice reviews and also questions about pre-orders and availability in the US and Europe.
So here it is. If everything goes smoothly (fingers crossed) the English version of Codenames will be in stores at the end of August.
The pre-orders for Spiel'15 in Essen will start at the end of August.
Bonjour, cześć and ¡Hola! can now be heard on the Galaxy Trucker space ships. We've added French, Polish and Spanish, so Galaxy Trucker is now fully localized in 7 languages. (That's a lucky number.)
If you were waiting to purchase the app because of the language barrier, there is no reason to wait anymore!
Enjoy the multiplayer game
(as well as the rest of the app) multilingually!
2015-07-30CODENAMES: Gen Con pre-order
Czech Games Edition are pleased to announce that the latest game from Vlaada Chvátil will be available for purchase at Gen Con 2015.
For more information about the game, please check out the entry on BoardGameGeek.
Pre-orders now closed, but if you are at GenCon, we may have a few copies left at booth 2052.
As you may know, CGE is working on a new Tash-Kalar demonic expansion deck for you. In the meantime, this summer, you can participate in the very first official World Championships of Tash-Kalar: Arena of Legends.
The tournament is open to everyone and will be played online at boardgamearena.com (BGA). Fame and prestige await the champion, but for the best players, there will also be prize packages consisting of CGE games.
Do you remember those fantastic explosive, radioactive, heavy, and fragile cargo components from the campaign? Well, now you can use them in multiplayer games with your friends. Each mission has its own rules, offering new possibilities of how to play the game.
Every two days, from Tuesday 14th July, there will be a new challenging mission ready for you to face. Some missions only slightly alter the rules, but some really test your skill – you have to take risks, face massive destruction and invent a new approach for every mission.
Until now, Galaxy Truckers have only spoken English and Czech. But it was only a matter of time before the business spirit of all truckers made them learn German and Russian so that they could trade with far-away galactic markets as well as talk with new fellow players.
Galaxy Trucker is now fully localized to English, Czech, German and Russian.
For the occasion of welcoming new players, the price will be $2.99 for all platforms until Friday 29th May, 2015!
2015-04-14Alchemists App Update
Dear Alchemists players,
As all true Alchemists explore and improve their knowledge, we continue to refine things for your enjoyment of the game. That´s why we want to inform you about an update of the Alchemists app algorithm.
Some ultra-clever Alchemists were able to decrypt the previous codes and use them to recognize one of the ingredients. Thus, they were able to cheat - which is not really fun. Ok, it could be fun for them but it is not quite fair, right? :)
We have great news for owners of Windows Phone devices! You may now join the ranks of iOS, Android and Kindle Fire players – Galaxy Trucker is now available also for Windows Phone 8.0 and 8.1.
During the first two weeks, you can buy the app for a special price! Get the Windows Phone version for just $ 2.99 in the store until April 17th, 2015.
Enjoy addictive spaceship building in either turn-based or real-time mode, and a wild ride through meteoric fields, space pirates and other cosmic adventures. Explore the galaxy and meet many lovely characters and unique challenges in an extensive campaign. Beat a dozen AI personalities and gain 80 achievements.
As the new year of 2015 started, a lot of blogs and websites started announcing the best motion pictures, songs and of course the best game of the year. We are excited that Galaxy Trucker was nominated for a couple of gaming awards and - wait for it - has even won some of them!
We'd like to thank to everyone who supported us and for all your ideas for improvements. One of the most frequent requests of the past months was to get Galaxy Trucker to the Amazon Appstore. We're happy to say that you can now buy Galaxy Trucker for your Kindles.
