What’s the fuss about Cursed City?

When Warhammer Quest: Cursed City was released in early 2021, it sold out almost instantly and many hobbyists had to go away empty-handed. Many had assumed that the game would become a permanent fixture, much like Blackstone Fortress, but no, it was just a single print run and Games Workshop couldn’t meet the demand. Frustratingly, they also stayed silent on if and when the game would ever be re-released.

That was a shame, because the included miniatures and components were spectacular and at the time the first appetiser for the updated Soulblight Gravelords range. Garfy was able to secure one of the boxes back then and shows you what’s inside in this video:

We also have a written unboxing and review on the blog.

But now Cursed City made a triumphant return. The game is back on a made to order basis for two weeks starting March 5th. Games Workshop promises everyone ordering from their website is guaranteed to receive a copy. The price stayed the same, and best of all, the game is not a games-workshop.com exclusive, but also available from our partner stores Wayland Games and Element Games at up to 20% discount. Our partner Taschengelddieb from Germany even offers a 24% saving over RRP!

And that’s not all, a full relaunch including expansions is planned for later this year. So if you can’t get your hands on a box this time, you’ll have another chance. However, be aware that with the planned Games Workshop price increase in March, I suspect that the price for Cursed City might also be increased for the general release.
