Upcoming release: World of Yo-Ho

Do you love board games? The joy of spending time with your friends, face to face, while challenging your brain. Do you also think of your cell phone as an extra body part? Keeping you constantly plugged in to the infinitely incredible world of technology. If the answer is yes, you need to keep reading.

Our friends at Volumique have spent the past few years developing, World of Yo-Ho; the perfect combination of social interaction, physical elements, and software that takes advantage of digital space. They’re so close to finishing the final product but need your help to make this unique new game reality.

We believe in this project and will act as the publisher when it’s ready to launch. We tried it out at GenCon and had a fantastic time playing it. At Essen, the fans were taken aback by the slick design and compelling game play. This isn’t like anything else we’ve seen and know it’s going to make a great splash.

Please spend a few minutes checking out the World of Yo-Ho kickstarter page. We’ll see you later on the high seas!

King of New York Release Update!

Shipping during the holiday rush can be a bit unpredictable. We try to avoid announcing any release dates until we are quite confident that we will be able to have games distributed to hobby stores around the world by the appropriate date. However, sometimes things just don’t go as planned.

Due to an incredible amount of extra congestion at the Los Angeles Port and a shortage of available truckers, our shipment of King of New York was delayed. The good news is that this is a great sign that the economy is rolling again. The bad news is that it means you’ll have a to wait a few more weeks for King of New York.

Due to these factors, we have moved our release date for King of New York to November 13th.

Our shipment has left LA, is on a train to Chicago, and has a date with a trucker to take it from there to our warehouse. With this information in hand, we’re feeling pretty good about our new release date.sticker_sheriff Oct 15th

Don’t forget to check with your local retailer to find out if they are hosting a release party!  Hobby stores are welcome to contact me for more information at organizedplay@iellogames.com

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

The Hare & the Tortoise on TableTop!

IELLO™ is proud to announce that The Hare & The Tortoise has been chosen for Geek & Sundry’s TableTop™ Season 3 with Wil Wheaton!

Filming of Season 3 began last week with airing expected between November 2014 and August 2015. Wil Wheaton and his celebrity guests will enjoy a fabled race to the finish line in this clever and simple game.

About The Hare & The Tortoise:

The Hare & the Tortoise is the third game in IELLO’s Tales & Games series and was designed by Gary Kim.  Players must bet on the outcome of a race between five different animals, each with a different running style.

The game is based on Aesop’s fable in which the Hare races ahead quickly, but then naps while the Tortoise plods along consistently. In this game, players can read the enclosed IELLO version of the fable, and the proceed to race the Tortoise and the Hare, along with Fox, Wolf, and Lamb; each animal with its own movement style! Players must play cards from their hands each turn to influence the number of spaces that an animal will move. But the total of all cards played will determine the final outcome.

About TableTop:

TableTop is a webseries on Geek & Sundry created and hosted by Wil Wheaton. During the show, Wil plays his favorite board games with an array of fun friends! Season 3 was funded through Indiegogo earlier this year with a phenomenal $1,413, 154 in campaign contributions from dedicated fans.
