2012-12-06Essen 2012 success
It was a great success for us this year. All of the new games are published gradually by our foreign partners, the majority of the other language versions will be finished by the end of the year.
Even Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar is in first place on the chart of games from Essen 2012and our fans are certainly not idle as they have already translated the rulebook on their own, for example these Spanish and Hungarian translations of Tzolk'in and Italian translation of Goblins Inc.

Our web pages were hacked and some of the news were permanently deleted. But don't worry we're working on it!
Check out this review of Tzolk’in on Opinionated Gamers website.
Electronic Eremite did a well received video review of Dungeon Petz.
While we are busy finishing the individual pages for our new games, you can download the rules of them here.
The rules for mini-expansion of Last Will that was given during Essen fair are available to download here.
2012-10-15Essen 2012 Bonus Mania
We are happy to announce that this year our fabulous Essen bonuses return with new vigor. With every purchase during Spiel 2012 at CGE booth in Hall 4, you will receive interesting goodies.
But remember, the stock is limited, so don’t postpone it until Sunday.
Essen Bonus no. 1: Button badges of Pets from Dungeon Lords:Festival Season
We’ll give away a free badge with each copy sold of Dungeon Lords: Festival Season, or with a purchase of three or more of our other games.
You can even choose which pet to adopt!
And don’t worry, these are not the same as last year. These are based on the beautiful new artwork from David Cochard.
Hello aspiring dungeon lords. The Festival Season is about to start in a few days, and we would like to announce the winners of our creative contest, so they can properly celebrate.
You sent dozens of ideas for new Special Event cards. After removing a few that didn’t match the criteria (i.e. were not nasty enough or referred to what happens in the “next season”), we had to go through quite a bunch of interesting cards and choose three to be included in the expansion.
The winners (and the cards they inspired) are:
Drew Sonnenberg – A Scout at the Entrance
Chris Wilczewski – Pet Shop
Matt Eyo-Tonks – I’m Back, Ladies
Thank you guys. Your minds are twisted the right way.

Also congratulations to Pegasus who published german version of both games.
2012-06-25Announcing new games for Essen 2012
Like previous years CGE is preparing new interesting games for the Essen fair 2012. This year we’ll surprise you with games from non-Czech designers as well as an expansion to one of our older games. Keep reading if you want to find more ….
Those familiar with the Dungeon Lords game know that there are three events each year – pay day, taxes and a random special event. In the expansion (due for Essen 2012), there will be one more season, so we decided that two random special events happen each year. Of course, this just calls for more interesting and nasty Special Event Cards.
If you have a great idea for such a card, you can submit it to us. If we use your idea, we will thank you in the rulebook and send you a copy of the expansion once it is released.
