New Preorder Release Date Policy

From now on, IELLO is promoting preorders for all new releases by shipping out preorders two weeks ahead of regular orders. We are not shipping any new releases to mass market or online retailers in order to give brick and mortar stores time to sell their product with no direct competition. This will also be combined with our promo promotions (see also: IELLO Announces ‘Happy Pigs’ Promotion) when possible.

Shipments were delayed for our April releases (Sea of Clouds, Candy Chaser, and Kenjin), so the preorder street date is April 21 and the general street date is April 28.* There will be a 3-card promo pack for Sea of Clouds sent out with all preorders as well.

If you have any questions about this new policy, please send an email to info@iellogames.com.

* Normally street dates will be two weeks apart, but we shipped games from factories in China and Poland, and they arrived at different times.

The lovely people at Worldbuilders just checked in with us to let us know that there are approximately 3,000 Draccus promo characters available for purchase at their site. They have already sold 1,000, which means they’ve raised $20,000 for the Heifer International charity! This is already a lot of money but they could raise even more with help from you!

New releases – World of Yo-Ho & Mexica

We’re excited to announce two BIG (seriously, these boxes are heavy) games that are joining the IELLO family today: World of Yo-Ho and Mexica!

World of Yo-Ho_Box_EN small

World of Yo-Ho is a fantasy game of adventure and piracy on the high seas. It’s a new type of game, for 2 to 4 players, that combines the tangible and social pleasure of a board game with the interactive mechanics of a video game. Become the most famous pirate of this parallel world full of intelligent animals, lost islands, and wild magic. The app is free and brings hilarious animations and sound effects to your battles and explorations. Though gameplay is more dynamic with a phone, the game includes material to allow you to play with four phones, or even just one phone. Tom Vasel from The Dice Tower picked it as his top game of December and also put out a fun review that shows gameplay! Check out our World of Yo-Ho youtube playlist for more gameplay and review videos!

Mexica is the third installment of the legendary “Masks” trilogy designed by W. Kramer & Mr. Kiesling. Tikal and Java were the first two games in this series, but we’ve redone the art to modernize it. Mexica is an investment game, requiring players to successful block their opponents while vying for majority with simple and subtle rules. Judiciously use your action points to build neighborhoods, dig navigation canals, build bridges … and counter the plans of your opponents! The game comes with sturdy resin temples to place and beautiful artwork on the map. Check out our Mexica youtube playlist for gameplay and review videos!
