fred-distribution-logoFRED Distribution, which is both a distributor and a publisher, has been very busy with the recent arrival of the first five titles in its Gryphon Games bookshelf series. Those include reissues of Money, Gem Dealer, and High Society by Reiner Knizia; For Sale by Stefan Dorra; and the new dice game by Matt Leacock, Roll Through the Ages. I highly recommend For Sale as a light but challenging auction game with (come to think of it) a timely real-estate theme. And Roll Through the Ages aims to fulfill our desire for a quck-playing, yet serious, civilization-building game.

Not stopping there, FRED has also just announced an arrangement with QWG Games to bring the Dutch company’s products to the US and UK markets—the first of which will be a reprint of Cavum in English.
