The Lookout Christmas discount & winter holidays for the team

This year is in desperate need of good news, we think.

2022 is almost peeking around the corner and it's going to bring great things. What, you ask? Well, our discount might already give you a little hint. Is there an anniversary coming up? In any case, we start with a 15% discountNote on all orders in the Lookout webshop!

Lookout Christmas Discount

So, hand over your wish list, browse our webshop and see what other little or big treasures you can find: Family hits like Llamaland, Gingerbread House or Bärenpark by Phil Walker-Harding, for example, or the brand-new revised version of the old time classic card game Family Business by David B. Bromley. Quick games for two like Great Plains, Mandala and Patchwork, of course, as well as the ultimate PAPER POINT `N CLICK adventure book Cantaloop - Book 1: Breaking into prison by Friedemann Findeisen.

The experts among you always get their money's worth at Lookout with Expedition to Newdale and Isle of Skye by Alexander Pfister, with Hallertau, Caverna or Ora et Labora by Uwe Rosenberg. Did I forget to mention anything? Well, this might perhaps be clue #2 on what we have up our sleeves for 2022…

New games 2021: Consul Dirigens deck - Cantaloop 2 - Family Business

We have brought you something!

The Lookout team has been quite busy in 2021, so we can put something under your tree just in time for Christmas.

Agricola (Revised Edition 2016): Consul Dirigens Deck Cover

Even more cards for Agricola (Revised Edition 2016): The Consul Dirigens Deck

Every completionists dream comes true with the new 120 cards of the Agricola (Revised Edition 2016): Consul Dirigens Deck. 96 cards of this deck are the missing ones from the Corbarius Deck and Dulcinaria Deck expansions, which means that - finally - all four decks (Artifex Deck, Bubulcus Deck, Corbarius Deck and Dulcinaria Deck) are complete.

Similar to the cards in the base game, the cards in the Consul Dirigens Deck have been selected to provide a balanced feel to the game. In addition, this deck contains the Parent Cards mini expansion, which offers 24 cards (more details can be found on the Agricola (Revised Edition 2016): Consul Dirigens Deck page).

Already released in Germany. All other editions should be available soon-ish 1.

Cantaloop - Book 1: Breaking into prison cover Cantaloop - Book 2: A hack of a plan cover

How to become a hacker: Time to get back to Cantaloop!

In 2021, we seem to have caught the nimbler vessel (see A game award, Cantaloop and Christmas holidays from Dec. 12th, 2020): The new edition of Cantaloop - Book 1: Breaking into Prison is already available in (German) stores 1. This December 1, the eagerly awaited sequel to our PAPER POINT'N CLICK adventure will finally be available:

After the chaotic, but at least successful events of the first part, in Cantaloop - Book 2: A Hack of a Plan the story continues. Oz "Hook" Carpenter's team is assembled, and the goal is set. Now, how do you best use your team's unique skills to forge a watertight revenge plan against the city's biggest crook? Explore beautifully illustrated locations, interact with new characters, and most importantly - solve tricky puzzles!

Do you have it? Find out in this fabulous PAPER POINT'N CLICK adventure by Friedemann Findeisen.

Family Business cover

Christmas season - family time? Yes, if it weren't for that other gang...

Nothing beats family. Well - your own family, of course. If foreign gangsters want to make themselves at home in your area, ALL family members actively help to eliminate the opponents. It's Family Business after all. In the end, the winner is the gang that has family members left standing.

In this remake of a classic card game by David B. Bromley, you must play your cards well. You are the gangster boss of your Family Business and of course you want to be the only one in town. However, to become the only one, you obviously have to get rid of all the members of the OTHER families. Murder missions, raids, intrigues, ambushes, gang warfare - are you brave enough for this job? Only the player who still has crooks left at the end of the game can rule the city and call himself #BigBoss from now on...

In this fast-paced trick-taking game for 3-6 players aged 8 and up, you'll not only be in for a hot time, you'll also come across one or two familiar faces as we have rounded up the #Family for this edition:

We thank our sister companies Asmodee Nordics (a.k.a. The Enigma?), Asmodee Italia (a.k.a. Asterions), Asmodee Taiwan (a.k.a. F.U.N. Gang), CATAN Studio (a.k.a. Woolly Woolies), and ADC Blackfire (a.k.a. BlackFIRE) for adding their own little gang to this game.

Will the Lookout's be there, too? Come to town and find out...

Well, let’s finish your wish list for Christmas!

Quadruplets?! New additions to the Patchwork family.

We've already gave you hints here and there, to spread the news about our wonderful novelties out of the Patchwork universe! Patchwork, the rewarding 2 player game for quilting without needle & thread, you already know since 2014. With Patchwork Folklore: China and Patchwork Folklore: Taiwan we have already expanded the family in 2020. Putting a regional stamp on the classic game by Uwe Rosenberg goes down very well with our fans.

Will we one day unite all nations in the Patchwork universe?

Travel the world with Patchwork Folklore.

With traveling still not easy, connecting via boardgames can take us far away while staying safe. So, let’s take you on a little trip around the world:

Join us on our way north and dress warmly while playing with the typical Scandinavian patterns of Patchwork Folklore: Scandinavia. Follow us across the Atlantic and welcome the colors of the Andes to your gaming tables with Patchwork Folklore: Andes. Move further north and welcome Patchwork Folklore: Americana, clearly inspired by the US flag. This edition isn't exactly new - available on the U.S. market since 2020 - now available in a German (collectors) edition for the very first time! Last but not least, Europe contributes one more edition: Patchwork Folklore: Poland delights with enchanting country-typical patterns, designed by the talented Jolanta Lendziosek.

All I want for Christmas is… more Patchwork!

It's hard to choose - which edition is on your wish list for Christmas? All Folklore Editions will be available in their respective mother countries soon, these German editions are exclusively available in our online shop in a limited edition of 500 pieces.

Busy as elves, your Lookout Team

FAQ: Something was recently done about the patches. Does this also apply to the new editions?

Absolutely not. All Folklore Editions correspond exactly to the values of the patches in the Patchwork base game! Here, as usual, the fun of the game is increased by enchanting regional patterns and magnificent colors.


Essen SPIEL'21


Events are very important for Asmodee and this, for sure, also includes Lookout. However, as we announced weeks ago, we will not be present at SPIEL '21.

Due to the still unclear health situation, we stand by our decision to not participate with our own booth at SPIEL in Essen this year. This applies equally to the Asmodee Group, the Studios and Asmodee Germany.

THE GOOD NEWS: You don't have to miss out on Lookout games! The 2021 novelties like Cantaloop Book 1, Llamaland, Great Plains and many classics will be waiting for you at SPIEL!

Check them out at the red Spielmobil of Spielezentrum Herne in EXHIBITION HALL #1 (attention: same place, but new booth number: F148).

All available Lookout titles - including Cantaloop Book 1 by Friedermann Findeisen, Hallertau by Uwe Rosenberg, Mandala, Isle of Skye, Bärenpark and many other Lookout titles - can be found at our Lookout partner retailers in EXHIBITION HALL #3 - e.g. Brummbär from Bochum at booth 3A100 / 3G107 or Spielzeit from Krefeld at booth 3A108.

We can't wait to get back to small and big events where we can share the joy of playing together and show our board games to the world.

Untill then – have fun, be careful and stay save!
