From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
It’s official: the Cursed City box will be coming back to shelves in 2022. You can hold fire on those overpriced eBay copies as you will soon be able to pick up a copy for the regular overpriced figure rather than the ludicrous overpriced figure. Nice!
Jokes aside I am happy to see this. I had plans for Cursed City content that I threw out after the debacle of the game’s launch and disappearance. Why create content for a game hardly anyone can play? Soon that won’t be the case so I will dive back into the game itself. In the meantime I will continue painting up my box set for actual use.
The Warhammer Community article announcing the game’s return also mentions expansions will follow. It looks like we will be getting the fantasy version of Blackstone Fortress with this game. Clearly the reason for the game’s disappearance was that it sold far better than expected, and a new production slot was over a year away. I still find it odd that rather than say this, they decide to hide all links to the game’s pages (but keep them up!) and stop talking about the game.
Games Workshop haven’t confirmed the re-release date, but from the images provide the miniatures, board pieces, box art, and other contents are all exactly the same as the 2021 release.
I’m going to put this in my ‘good news’ column for the year. In fact I had been preparing a review of 2021 and has the Cursed City down as biggest disappointment. Not any more!
