Shipments info + a new game in the Small Empires series!

Posted by Archona Games (Creator)

Hello everyone!

Great news! The EU ship has arrived in Hamburg few days ago! That means now it is time for customs procedures, which I am informed could take around 2 weeks this time of year in Germany, so we stay on schedule for November fulfillment from Happyshops for orders in Europe.

As for the US/Rest of world ship, it is expected to arrive in Miami around 31st of October, and we expect to have the items in Quartermaster Logistics' warehouse around November 2nd (I don't exactly know how long would customs take, but I suppose not as much as Germany). So, we should be right on schedule with the US/RoW fulfillment as well! :)

Here's the US/RoW ship tracking link:

For the Australian shipment, since it is relatively small number of copies, we will be using a courier service such as Fedex and we expect those games to arrive probably even earlier than the US. :)

Small Sea Empires!

Now that we are in the final moments of this wonderful journey, we would like to announce a new game in the "Small Empires" series called Small Sea Empires!

In Small Sea Empires, players will be able to explore the new world, trade exotic resources and develop their colonies to establish the most prosperous sea empire!

For now, the Kickstarter is planned for Q1 2019, most probably January/February. More info on the game play will be out hopefully soon!

Check out the beautiful cover art below by Jose David Lanza Cebrian, and tell us what you think!

And as always, we need your help to spread the word around for the game and get as many people as possible on board! You can help by:

      Great news! Thank you for the update. I'm so excited to get my copy and play Small Star for the first time! Small Sea has me intrigued, I look forward to learning more about that as well :)

      @Archona Take my money now!!! I found Small Star Empires by chance and it is now one of our favourite minigames.
      If Sea follows the same level of quality and design as Star (which I'm sure it will), I'm sure it'll be a worthy addition to the Small Empires Series. The cover looks great by the way!

      Thanks everyone for the comments and the support! We are glad you like the cover and the idea for the game! :)

      @Draxon Fly
      We will ship the whole pack of games to Australia and then fulfill from there. :)

      I hope you are asking about the cover only. :P

      @Kit Temple
      Happy to have you on board! The list of "Small Empires" games we plan is a long one so... :)

      To Australia, if you use Fedex or something, they usually have tracking along with it, any chance of getting those tracking numbers? so looking forward to me copy.

      Small Sea Empires! sounds great (I really enjoy the age of sail) but I kinda want some setbacks to happen for the campaign for it so it pushes it a bit latter then you mention. I'm out of coin for games till mid next year, would hate to miss out.. eeep!!

      It is a beautiful box cover - but is it... game-y, action-y, I don't know? (I'm trying to avoid saying "boring" or "dull".)

      I'm glad that Small Sea Empires Kickstarter won't be until Jan/Feb. I am new to small empires and happy to get the time to play-test small star empires which will hopefully make me want to buy future small empire games.
