Release Schedule Mon, 13 December 2010 23:55
So, I really enjoy essentially every Days of Wonder game that I play, and so I have bought most of the new ones around the time they come out. It makes me wonder, though, are they released on a standard release schedule (I remember Mystery Express and Fictionaire coming out this year, so is the schedule every 6 months or something), or are they just released as they are created?

It seems like they are released when they are created, although I'm sure DoW has a schedule in mind for each year. It's not a set schedule where we can look around and say, "It's almost November 15th...DoW will be announcing another new game today!!" Smile

I think we can rest assured that they will try to release something before Christmas each year, but other than that I'm not sure. Your guess is as good as mine! Cool

That's unfortunate, because my guess isn't very good! Smile

I feel your pain! My guesses weren't very good either so I stopped guessing and just enjoyed the surprise when they announced a new game!! Very Happy

So far all of their games have been amazing and I haven't been disappointed. Plus, I have to be honest that by the time they're announcing a new game I haven't even had time to fully enjoy the last one I got from them! Laughing It's a good problem to have. Cool

je14, glad you like all of our games. That's really what we are hoping for - that we can consistently make you smile when you play a DOW game.

We typically bring out one completely new game each year, sometimes like this year, two. Often our "big box game" comes out in the first half of the year, but that is not set in stone.

Expansions for various games come out on a more frequent basis and as rasmussen81 pointed out, we often have something for the Christmas season. Keep an eye out on the news blog on the home page. You can also subscribe to the news blog via RSS feed, which will keep you updated automatically on any new announcements.

Thanks for the information. I've added it to my Google Reader so that I can know when new games are coming.

Thanks again!

DoW sure is cutting it close for their Christmas annoucement this year. Only 4 more days. Usually there is some news out before Christmas - at least it seems in the past it was like a few weeks before it. Smile
