It's Time To Start Guessing In Concept Kids

7 Comments

Ryan was able to stop off with the minds behind Concept Kids here at Essen SPIEL ’18 and even took part in a little demonstration.

Concept is a great game all about trying to convey a word or idea through the use of icons and pictures. It can be quite the brain teaser and the kids game gets them started that little bit earlier.

You can play along with Ryan in this video and see if you get it before him!

WHAT? Spells? Witless Wizards Are A'Comin + WIN The Game

32 Comments

We stop in with Drawlab to talk about Witless Wizards which has only just come off Kickstarter. Ryan has a chat with the folks behind the game and talks about what this is all about.

Comment To Win A Copy Of Witless Wizards

This game is a humorous jump into the world of magic where you are trying to remember just what spells you can cast as a poor old man!

It’s quirky, full of magical awesomeness and well worth diving into.

Ryan got a chance to talk with the folks behind Everdell which features all manner of wonderful woodland creatures.

Come and learn more about what this game is all about from Starling Games and maybe give this one a look yourself. I love the fact that it comes with this awesome big 3D tree!

iello Embrace The Old School In 8BitBox + WIN The Game!

43 Comments

We stop in with iello and talk about one game which is a fantastic look back at retro video gaming. 8BitBox is a fantastic set of four different games which allows you to see if you’re any better with your cardboard and chits than you were with a joystick.

Win A Copy Of 8BitBox

It’s time to stop in with Robin and learn more about the game so you get to see what it’s like ahead of winning yourself a copy!

I’m at the Uhrwerk Verlag/Top Tables booth (Hall 6, stand 6I100) at friday and saturday, giving demo games of Wild West Exodus. Head over for a small chat (especially about “La Belle”) 🙂

Interesting viewing the various conventions and, in my opinion, this year UK Games Expo has been the most interesting with regard to new games and the generosity of exhibiters for prizes.
