Cantaloop Book 1: Breaking into prison rocks! Ricarda plays purple, Sabine plays red.

Your feedback for Cantaloop Book1: Breaking into prison blew our socks off!

Cantaloop - Book 1: Breaking into prison

We really love to put the utmost joy into our games - for all of you! Still, we are so happy with all the positive feedback, posts and reviews on our first analog Paper Point’n Click adventure. Cantaloop Book 1: Breaking into prison by game designer Friedemann Findeisen exceeded our wildest expectations and was almost sold out within a few weeks.

If you haven’t been able to get hold of your personal copy, rest assured: We are working with high pressure on the next release! Or as Hook would put it: combine BOOK with PRINTING PRESS.

Additionally, we added new players to the Lookout team! Let them introduce themselves.

Hello, I am Ricarda.

Portrait - Ricarda

As new project and product manager at Lookout Games, I've been happily pushing Meeples and emails around since joining the team. My home office today is in Berlin, but I grew up south in Ingolstadt.
Before joining the Asmodee family, I played and studied and studied what I played. In other words: I did my Master Degree in Game Studies and Engineering at the Alpen-Adria University. I've been supporting Sören in project management since March, so I'm deep in the middle of the Lookout range, under all those cards, boxes, emails and - sheep!

How would other players describe you?
I think they would first notice my euphoria at the beginning of each game night. Speaking of pure happiness: I play purple.

Hello, I am Sabine.

Portrait - Sabine

Lookout is publishing great games, as marketing manager I will take care the games find their way to you even more quickly in the future. You also need someone to answer questions that are not about the rules of the game. For example: When will Le Havre finally be released again?
My expertise is in marketing & events, I launched organic brands for retail and organized eco-friendly business events in Austria. For Lookout, I can now fully exploit my know-how and will play all cards. I live in the town of the Grand Austria Hotel with my family, a large pile of board games and an even larger pile of books.

What does a successful game night look like for you?
A large table, good-humored teammates, a few nice games, crisp puzzles and - sheep. 
And if you ask: I play red.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Translation: Merry Christmas - 2021 will certainly be better!

Lookout wishes a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

However, before we will vanish completely, we have a little gift for you: The prequel print & play for Cantaloop - Book 1: Breaking into prison is now available. If you don't know what to play between Christmas and New Years, simply head over to the games download section and give it a try.

Misprint in Nusfjord: Salmon Deck!

Nusfjord: Salmon Deck Cover

Unfortunately we had to find out that we introduced a misprint with the new Salmon Deck expansion for Nusfjord. The number showing with how many players the new elder card should be used, as well as the number which defines which elder card from the base game should be replaced are wrong. Correctly they should show "12" (which means that the elder card with number 12 from the base game should be replaced with the new one) and "4 - 5". A correction PDF can be found on the expansions sub-page:

Nusfjord: Salmon Deck

Rules PDF for Artifex, Bubulcus, Corbarius & Dulcinaria

Artifex Cover Bubulcus Cover Corbarius Cover Dulcinaria Cover

Everyone owning one (or more) of the expansion decks for Agricola (Revised Edition) might have already stumbled upon the additional rule clarification on the side of the box. It explains the "Unconditional Sow Action" in detail (an action which does not exist in the base game and is therefore never explained in the rule book). Now there is rumor that some people store their expansions in the base game box and don't have acces to the expansions box all the time . As a result, we added a new PDF to the download section of all four expansions which contains exactly this rule clarification:

Agricola (Revised Edition): Artifex Deck

Agricola (Revised Edition): Bubulcus Deck

Agricola (Revised Edition): Corbarius Deck

Agricola (Revised Edition): Dulcinaria Deck
