Warcradle are busy demoing Wild West Exodus, as well as their upcoming game Dystopian Wars, with some fantastic tables showing how both worlds intertwine.

It’s great to see how these games are developing and shaping the world in parallel to one another. It’s particularly exciting to see Dystopian Wars take float with the new miniatures Warcradle have made for the game.

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.
