1) The new french edition of Tempete sur l'echiquier (Knightmare Chess) is scheduled for June. I've just seen the cartoons (they are now colorized), and it looks very nice. The first expansion is scheduled for September.

2) I'm extrapolating a little book about the history of Chess rules and Chess variants in Europe from the end of Middle Ages till the end of 19th century from an old university dissertation that I wrote in 1990. It will also be published in September or October.

3) We're still looking for an American licensor for Murder at the Abbey. It doesn't sell very well in France (but not very bad either), probably because it's a little too expensive, but we have only good reports from players.

Perhaps one of the new startup or restart game companies will go for Murder at the Abbey.

Will the expansion to Knightmare Chess include new cards? New game systems?
