The pre-order is live! Codinca can be yours first!
Why are we so excited about this? Well, back in 2012 when we published the original limited edition version for Spiel, Essen the game had already been shortlisted for the Award of Best New Abstract Game by the judges at the UK Games Expo. Although it narrowly missed out we knew we had potentially a ‘very good’ game on our hands. Following more play-testing over the last year, we have simplified and cleaned up the mechanics of the game and we feel it’s even better!
The game is now going to be a ‘pocket’ game in a pretty magnetic closing box, which will include rules in English, German, French, Polish, Spanish and Dutch. The retail price will be £14.99
Its official release if fittingly going to be at the 2016 UK Games Expo in Birmingham on 3-5 June 2016, where not only can you play the game, but you can enter the first ever British Speed Codinca Championships here and win a signed copy of the game, a copy of Clacks! and a fantastic Codinca trophy.
(Check out our two minute ‘how play video’ here so you can see how easy it is.)
Games can be pre-ordered here for collection at UK Games Expo (Booth – F7) or if you can’t make it there, copies are due for dispatch on week commencing 20 June 2016, if not before.

Guards! Guards! and Clacks! stock running out
Sadly, even though we ordered extra copies of Guards! Guards! for the final print-run ever we are starting to run out. Copies can still be acquired here before it becomes a collectors item and people are trying to sell it a over inflated prices.
Clacks! has also been very popular. We have some copies here and can also let you know that we are shortly going to reprint and in addition are printing in Polish, with Phalanx and in Czech with Rexport.
