A short list today, but one packed with lots in a small space:
• Colby Dauch of Plaid Hat Games has updated the game listing for Mr. Bistro's Dungeon Run, detailing the game's setting and adding pics of the game's new look. Dungeon Run is scheduled for an August 2011 release.
• Martin Wallace's Ankh-Morpork gets an early showing at Club Tremme before being available for play at, um, PLAY, an annual convention in Modena, Italy. Andrea Ligabue will preview Ankh-Morpork on BGG News in the near future following multiple playings at PLAY.
• Speaking of Martin Wallace, one new item that has popped onto the list of new and newish titles to look for at UK Games Expo 2011 in June is an expansion board for Age of Industry, specifically a double-sided game board with Japan on one side and Minnesota on the other. As Wallace noted on BGG in December 2010, "Both maps will have little twists on the original rules."
• Fantasy Flight Games has unveiled its June 2011 release schedule, but rather than provide more details in this post, I'll instead link to all the game listings because, yes, they are already all live in the database:
