Dice Sports: Exodus & Air Flick - Dexterity-Based WWII Goodness! #UKGE2021

4 Comments

Our resident WW2 expert John has made his way over to the Dice Sports booth, where he takes a look at Air Flix and Exodus.

Both are incredibly unique games – Air Flix is a fast-paced, Second World War, dexterity based dogfighting game for 2 or more players, and Exodus is a survival horror game for 1-5 players which combines intense tactical combat, resource management and a comic book narrative! Certainly interesting concepts, which if you are at UKGE – you should check out before they all sell out!

The Detective Society: An Escape Room/ARG Experience In Your Living Room #UKGE2021

1 Comment

One of the coolest games that we’ve seen this year is one that would probably appeal to more than just your average tabletop fan. The Detective Society is “an escape room in a box” which brings together puzzle-solving elements and ARG gameplay.

This seems like a fascinating way to get people sitting around a tabletop and venturing into something a bit different. Everyone wants to be the person who solves the mystery during the middle of that crime drama!

Sythopian Wars is a new miniatures wargame that is coming to Kickstarter towards the end of this year. The focus is on a reactive d6-based system which allows you to play out quick and deadly skirmishes or bigger battles.

The game also features very unique factions and miniatures from this team of brothers. Both of the starting factions look unique and different and decidedly not for the faint of heart!
