Artipia Games Go Stealin' With A Thief's Fortune & Project Elite


Artipia Games has been focusing in on two awesome games of late. The first of these is A Thief’s Fortune which has you playing to try and be the best pilferer in the Middle-east.

Twin this with a tower defence style alien game called Project Elite and you really do have a lot of different bases covered with these guys.

Roxley Discuss The Changes Between Brass: Birmingham & Lancashire + More Of Their Games!


Ryan stops in with Roxley Game Laboratory to talk about two of their massive games which have sold out here at the convention including Brass: Lancashire and Brass: Birmingham.

Both of these games are titans that have rocked the board gaming world and Birmingham does a lot to address some of the meta developments that came out of Lancashire during its lifetime.

There is a still a lot that players love from both games and with Ben as a proper Brummie it’s great to have a game which looks back at his neck of the woods!

Room 17 Guide Us Through Their Tenfold Dungeon System


Room 17 are heading in a different, downwards direction for their next project as they present Tenfold, a system of stackable dungeon-delving terrain.

We have had a lot of fun with Room 17’s games, so it was great to get a chance to find out what they are working on. Tenfold looks to be the answer for those fans of dungeon delving who want to create an evocative gaming environment that won’t break the back.

Maybe we could even get some wargaming content today? What are terrain companies up to? Brother Vinni? Some new and exciting sculptors? I couldn’t care less about board games, tbh.


Any chance to see the guys from Adreama Games, Inc. (Machina Arcana) @ Hall5 – 5E104. I backed the KS and they have the prototype in the booth.


I did see Machina Arcana (did not backed it) I can tell you anything about the game play. But it surpiced me how tiny every thing was. I think in a game you will easily tobble game pieces over.
