video preview of Reiner Knizia's Star Trek: Expeditions, with Jeremy D. Salinas, aka Drakkenstrike, providing the video.
• Fantasy Flight Games has posted a first preview for Deadwood, which is due out July 2011.
• Ystari Games has posted rules for Philippe Keyaerts' Olympos in five langauges – French, English, German, Polish and Japanese – on the Olympos page on Ystari's website.
• Ignacy Trzewiczek, designer of 51st State, notes in a blog post for the publisher Portal that an expansion/spin-off for the card game – dubbed New Era – has been sent out to playtesters.
• Dice Hate Me has more details on Sunrise City, a title from Isaias Vallejo due out in Q4 2011 from Clever Mojo Games.
• German publisher eggertspiele has listed June 2011 as the release date for both Die Speicherstadt: Münzspeicher and Die Speicherstadt: Kaispeicher, two expansions for Stefan Feld's Die Speicherstadt. The first expansion comes with 25 metal coins (that you can use in place of those in the base game) and one card that can be added to the deck; the second expansion includes sixty cards, five meeples and a new type of goods.
• Touko Tahkokallio's Principato, previewed on BGG News in February 2011, is also due out from eggertspiele in June 2011.
• Moonster Games has posted a shot of the Gosu: Kamakor box. Sweeeet! Its appeal matches that of Gosu, and when looking at these two – along with the striking cover of Skull & Bones – their powerful graphics make a strong argument for publishers to keep titles off the front of a box. Okay, I know that's not going to happen, but for a game pitched to geeks, the audience is likely to be hypnotically drawn to a box like this anyway.
