There’s a big red circle marking the month of October on every board gamer’s calendar. The world’s largest game convention – Essen Spiel – takes place in Germany this October 8-11 and Days of Wonder is debuting two new Ticket to Ride maps there: the United-Kingdom and the US state of Pennsylvania. Both maps are bundled in a new expansion: the 5th installment in our series of Map Collections.

R’hka and his dwarf companions were digging for gold, but nothing could prepare them to the discovery they were about to make.
With shovels and pickaxes, they were progressing in the mine. Suddenly, one of the pickaxes hit what looked like an old crate engraved with strange runes.

Are the oracles in Wheaton’s favor? Can he actually gain control of the Sultanate of Naqala for his first Tabletop win of season three?
Watch as Wil competes alongside Satine Phoenix (comic book illustrator extraordinaire), Richard Garriott (video game developer, AKA Lord British in Ultima), and Jenna Busch (host and writer of all things geek) – who you might remember from her appearance on the show’s first episode featuring another Days of Wonder favorite: Small World
On February 26th, the “As d’Or - Jeu de l’Année 2015″ ceremony was held in the Palais des Festivals in Cannes. We’re delighted and proud that Five Tribes was awarded the “As d’Or – Grand Prix” (French Game of the Year Award – Expert Game)!
That was quite a journey since last year when Five Tribes made its first appearance under DoW colors in that very same Festival!
Congrats to Bruno Cathala & Clément Masson and a huge Thank You to all the people who made this come true!
