Area 1851 at Essen 2015 - an experience 164 years in the making!

Posted by Game Salute (Creator)

Don't forget, we're at Essen 2015 and will have a handful of copies of the game for folks to check out who are at the show! While this isn't the official release, we'll be getting copies in the hands of our worldwide partners to spread the word about the game and have as many people as possible see just what Area 1851 is about! If you're at Essen Spiel, do come by the booth and see the final product!

We also released the latest episode of The Life and Times of a Board Game podcast yesterday which has a massive focus on Area 1851, complete with a huge interview with Justin Blaske, the designer of the game. If you want to check it out, you'll find the show on iTunes (or you can download it straight from here: )

Thanks as always for your support and patience! You shan't be waiting too much longer now!

      Any new news on the game front? Other KS had provided boat information. Just curious if you roughly know where it is :)

      We're waiting on the games to arrive, which we expect to happen in the next few weeks. They it needs to get through Customs, hit our warehouse and be processed. While we hoped to hit October, it's not looking likely - once we have a guaranteed timeline though, we'll let you all know what's planned.
