UK Games Expo 2017 - Press Preview
City of Kings was a massively successful UK Kickstarter game which was fully funded almost 10x over. We had the pleasure of speaking to Frank West, the games designer, about the immersive fully co-op fantasy world he had created. With a series of expansions planned to expand upon the lore of City of Kings, look out for this one which should be hitting shelves February 2018! We'll be pre-ordering our copy soon!
Sub Terra was another huge UK Kickstarter hit getting 22x it's original asking pledge goal. Sub Terra is a co-op survival horror game where you and up to 6 friends must escape a cave filled with twists, turns and the ever encroaching 'horror'. We snapped up our copy as soon as it was available to buy at the Expo and have played it multiple times since. It's an amazingly fun and tense game with 3 expansions available adding additional cavers to the game.
Mars Rover is an upcoming Kickstarter game due to launch later next year with a shipping target of the end of 2018. Mars Rover puts you and your friends behind the wheel in a simulated game navigating Mars' terrain. Just like the real Mars Rover you might end up stuck in a ditch for a few rounds and actions are played but delayed until the 'transmissions' reach the planet.
Nine Worlds is a Norse and Anglo-Germanic area control game. The goal of the game is to control as many areas as possible to gain special world powers and have as many armies in play by the end of the game. We loved the artwork, reminding us of dwarven Skyrim caves, and we're always a sucker for glass beads as meeples!
We've covered Carcosa in our June Kickstarter post but can't help but keep gushing over it! In a nutshell Carcosa is the love child of Carcassone and HP Lovecraft but it's so much more than that! ....................... ...................... .............. ..........
Flip the Script is a fun, improv party card game. Given a selection of well known actors and themes you must pitch your next blockbuster movie idea to the group, the best script idea wins! Simple! Flip the Script is currently running a campaign on Kickstarter, seeing the game up close and personal I can say I really enjoyed the simplicity of the artwork. After a few glasses of wine I can really see this one going down a treat on game nights!
Launching in September on Kickstarter, Dice Hospital is a light, worker placement dice game. Whilst the artwork is yet to be finalised I really loved the concept of the game. Working against other players you take in urgent cases from the ambulance bay, upgrade your hospital or workers to increase your chances of winning but keep your eye on your patients! If you forget to cure your sickest patients you'll be losing out on those precious points. As a lover of Theme Hospital I'll be looking forward to seeing this game launch in a few months
Perfect Crime was again another successful Kickstarter game which was fully funded last June. A cooperative heist game for 2-5 players, Perfect Crime lets any would be criminal or police academy recruit live out their fantasy in 2-5 player game to grab/keep the most loot as possible. With Reservoir Dogs coloured meeples, high tech gadgets, evidence to collect and alarms to avoid this game is truly unique! Modelled on real life bank robberies we're really looking forward to playing this one!
