The first issue of 2011 of Spielbox arrived on Saturday and included a copy of the 8th Wonder (Mannekin Pis) for the game 7 Wonders. So the 8th Wonder is no longer an “Essen exclusive” after all.
In the magazine, there is another big article on the Essen releases, this time concentrating on games from France, Great Britain, Poland, Sweden, Japan, Singapore and South Korea. The reviews include Forbidden Island, 7 Wonders, London, Troyes and Lords of Vegas. Plus, there’s a short interview with JKLM’s Markus Welbourne, a portrait of Lookout Games and articles about Heinz Meister and his new game, Avanti.
