Thames & Kosmos UK has bolstered its tabletop gaming portfolio with the arrival of The Lost Words – Card Game based on the book by the best-selling author Robert Macfarlane, as well as the latest titles in its Exit range, The Enchanted Forest and The Cemetery of the Knight. The two new additions join the line-up amid what Thames & Kosmos UK has cited as a ‘massive surge in sales for our Exit titles.”
The latest additions begin with The Lost Words, a game for players aged eight and upwards, ‘but strategic enough to keep adults engaged.’ The Card Game is based on the novel by author Robert Mafarlane and acclaimed illustrator of over 40 classics, Jackie Morris.
“Our customers have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this visually enthralling game,” said Jo Drage, sales director, Thames & Kosmos UK.
“The pre-orders from bookstores and the retail trade were much higher than anticipated, and it’s clear that, due to the immense popularity of The Lost Words book, the game is a ‘must-have’ for AW.
“With nights drawing in and families looking to spend time away from gadgets and an increased interest in nature and its enchanting world, The Lost Words is certainly bound to be a top seller this Christmas.”
The Lost Words – Card Game retails at £13.50 and is available in bookstores or via the company’s website.
Meanwhile, the firm has also announced the arrival of the latest in its Exit game titles: The Enchanted Forest and The Cemetery of the Knight. The latest arrive in what has been labelled as a year for Exit games, having seen a ‘massive surge in sales of the range of titles.’
Drage continued: “2020 has seen a massive surge in sales of our range of Exit titles. This trend continued after the easing of lockdown across the UK and Europe, as groups of families and friends are still keen to play games which entice participants away from electronic gadgets whilst also providing a team-based gaming experience.”
The Enchanted Forest is the perfect entrance game to the EXIT: The Game series with its difficulty level of two out of five. The Enchanted Forest takes its players into a forest full of fairytale creatures and even stranger puzzles.
The Cemetery of the Knight is perfect for the slightly more experienced EXIT player with a difficulty level of three out of five and takes the team to a cemetery and the tomb of Sir Reginald Wreston in order to solve the mystery of where to find the priceless red ruby.
“Both new Exit titles have had significant interest from serious board gamers and families alike and we have been inundated with pre-orders, proving that gaming will continue to go strong well into the latter part of 2020,” said Drage.
Another new arrival to the Thames & Kosmos warehouse is The Volcanic Island, an Adventure Game for those aged 12 and upwards which retails at £15.
“With our best-selling range of Adventure Games, you get the thrill of the Exit game series while being able to replay the game at any time and determine how the story ends,” said Drage.
“This game is perfect for those longer Autumn nights and will keep the entire family at the edge of their seat.”
