Good luck to all in 2013!
#1 Seller Of 2012…
Kudos to the folks at Minion Games! The Manhattan Project is the #1 selling product of 2012 through Impressions (by unit sales). If your store has not had a chance to bring this great worker placement game into your store, grab it soon as we’re almost out of the second print run. But don’t fret, Minion is already setting up a third printing.
Find the description here, or read it right here, right now…
“The Manhattan Project is a low-luck, mostly open information efficiency game in which players compete to build and operate the most effective atomic bomb program. Players do not “nuke” each other, but conventional air strikes are allowed against facilities.
The game features worker placement with a twist; There are no rounds and no end-of-round administration. Players retrieve their workers when they choose to or are forced to (by running out).
An espionage action allows a player to activate and block an opponent’s building, representing technology theft and sabotage.”

Impressions: Vidcast 6
Aldo and Richard unbox Tahiti from Minion Games, two new adventures for the Lamentations of the Flame Princess RPG, in addition to taking a hard look at why December is NOT the holiday sales beast that people think it is for the hardcore FLGS as well as top sellers for November…but take special note to the conversation about retailer turns at 12:00!
Manhattan Project Back In Stock With New Tahiti Release
Not only did we just get the reprint of The Manhattan Project back in stock, but Minion Games’ latest release, Tahiti, came along for the ride. I urge you to rush quickly on The Manhattan Project as we’re running through this second printing fast!
In the meantime, check out what Tahiti is all about:
Your small island is peaceful and prosperous – so prosperous that your tribe has grown beyond its ability to sustain you! Fortunately, being a peaceful people you have chosen not to fight over what little there is. Instead, you set out in your seagoing Wa’a (canoe) to fish and gather crops from the many nearby islands. The fertility goddess Haumea has blessed these islands, and they are rich with fruits, vegetables, and spices. It is a matter of pride to collect the finest harvest for the village. Can you win the race against time and the sea, and prove that you are the best gatherer of all?
