Newsletter September 2015

The newsletter for Zooloretto, Mondo and my other games got distributed for many years by mail. Nowadays the procedure makes a lot of technical problems and i have to continue the service here. So, if you want to keep access to the news you can visit my Newsblog here or follow me at Twitter (@michael_schacht).


Hellweg with surprise

After the good recognition of the last years’ campaign we will run it again: At the booth of „Spielbar“ (Hall 2-A100) the buyers of „Hellweg westfalicus“ will get additionally the brandnew (!) and exclusive mini expansion „Marktflecken“ as well as a surprise package, as long as the stock lasts. Tip: if you already have the basic game then bring your rule booklet, show it and you will receive the expansion anyway. More Infos
