Our Support for Ukraine

To the Russian players who have bought some of our games in the past: we strongly believe the vast majority of you do not support the acts of war your president and government have unleashed upon Ukraine.

We totaled all of the profit we have ever received from Russian copies of CGE games; it is nearly €400,000 Euro. We have sent all of this money to help Ukraine.

We hope you won't mind this decision. Perhaps you may even welcome it. Thank you again for buying, playing, and enjoying our games—in addition to the fun we hope you had with them, it will now also help a just cause.

Lost Ruins of Arnak: Expedition Leaders Availability

Dear friends and fans of Lost Ruins of Arnak,

We have some updates about the availability of the game’s expansion, Expedition Leaders.

You might have seen that the expansion was first available at SPIEL’21 in both English and German languages. Expedition Leaders quickly became a bestseller of the show, alongside the new edition of Galaxy Trucker—for which we are grateful. It was incredible to be able to showcase both the expansion and the base game after almost two years of no conventions. If you weren’t at the show, you can check out our video report.

Essen Spiel'21: When Less is More

It's no surprise that Essen Spiel'21 was a smaller show this year. The good news is that while there may have been fewer exhibitors and fewer attendees than in years past, the energy and enthusiasm we saw was anything but small. Throughout the convention, demo tables were bustling non-stop, and our hearts were full of happiness from seeing you all again!

This year attendees had a chance to try out a giant version of the newly re-launched Galaxy Trucker in the gallery between halls 2 and 4. It was hilarious watching everyone running around and scrambling to build their ships with large tiles, and people seemed to have a blast with it...
