Element, This Belongs in a Museum are hits at GAMA

Mark Streed and Mike Richie play Element

Mark Streed from Boardgame Corner and Mike Richie, game designer for Rather Dashing Games, engage in an epic battle of Element. Boardgame Corner awarded Element its first-ever Cornerstone Collection award prior to the game's release. A Cornerstone Collection award is granted to a game Boardgame Corner believes belongs in everyone's collection. 

The Rather Dashing team spent March 13-17 at the GAMA Trade Show at Bally's in Las Vegas. It was fantastic to see so much excitement for our new games, Element and This Belongs in a Museum! With Element only out for two weeks, we were thrilled to hear that retailers were selling out of copies quickly and reordering more in an effort to meet customer demand. It's obvious our 2- to 4-player abstract strategy game has developed a great fan base!

Fans of adventure, archeology and tile-laying games were drawn to This Belongs in a Museum and its strategic game play. Figuring out how to connect your dig sites via airports, mountains and water as well as collect artifacts for more points kept the challenge level up. Game store owners we talked to thought this was a fun addition to the Drawn & Quartered series of games, which includes Pirates, Ninjas, Robots & Zombies and Graveyards, Ghosts & Haunted Houses. This Belongs in a Museum hits store shelves April 5.

At GAMA many retailers signed up for our email newsletter. If you didn't get a chance to sign up for our newsletter list, it's as easy as clicking here.  Don't worry; we don't spam you with constant emails. We will let you know when new games are going to be released, though, and share other information such as special promotions and how-to-play videos with you.
