Go Cuckoo Contest Winners

Thanks to everyone who entered our Go Cuckoo contest. We had loads of fun seeing all of your photo submissions. Now let’s move on to the winners. Remember that we had two contests.

The randomly chosen winner of the Gleam contest is Tanya B of Warrington, PA. Tanya, be on the lookout for an email from Meeple Mountain and congratulations!

The photo contest was much harder as we had some awesome submissions. But to make it fair we also randomly selected a winner from all of our amazing entries. That winner is @Eden73 with the following HABA USA trifect shot! Congratulations @Eden73!

Fantasy Flight / Games Workshop Ending Partnership

This just announced, Fantasy Flight and Games Workshop will be ending their 8 year partnership. In 2008 Fantasty Flight began producing mass market games set in the Games Workshop universe. Titles such as Chaos in the Old World and Forbidden Stars have been bit hits for both companies.

Games Workshop has been a fantastic partner for the past eight years, and we’re thrilled that we had the opportunity to work together and bring so many new and exciting games into the world. As much as we have enjoyed creating these games, our current licensing term is coming to an end.


All upcoming products for Games Workshop-licensed games have already been announced and will be released in upcoming months. All Games Workshop-licensed product lines will leave the Fantasy Flight Games catalog on February 28th, 2017.

Sushi Go! on iOS

Our perennial favorite card drafting game Sushi Go! finally sees a release to iOS. The delightfully fun game of picking and passing sushi has been a hit with gamers since it’s release.

In Sushi Go! the goal is to grab the best combination of sushi dishes as they whiz by. Score points for making the most maki rolls or for collecting a full set of sashimi. Dip your favorite nigiri in wasabi to triple its value. But be sure to leave room for dessert or else you’ll eat into your score! Gather the most points and consider yourself the sushi master!

Now that Sushi Go is finally seeing the light in iOS digital form, can an Android release be too far behind?
