Holding On & Getting The Lowdown From Hub Games - WIN Holding On!

34 Comments

Ryan stops off with Hub Games to talk to them about how things are going with them and Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr.

Win A Copy Of Holding On

You can actually see a Let’s Play of this game that we did with them HERE and get a feel for how it plays on the tabletop but it is safe to say that it is quite the hit in the feels as you get stuck into it.

Excellent to hear that Holding On is a big success at Essen Spiel.

On the one hand, I like the focus in the patient, Billy Kerr, with the care team characters (the players) being more anonymous – makes a change from the usual TV hospital dramas where the doctors, nurses and administrators take center stage. But on the other hand, a board game like ER or Dr House would be cool too…

Somehow I totally missed the Untold release last year – looks like a great way to play a more structured Game of Rory’s Story Cubes. Going from a quick ice-breaker or filler game to a “main event” board game.

Please take a closer look at HUB’s Pandemic card game variant.

After watching the Let’s Play of this the other day, this one is definitely on my list of games to get. Love the mechanics of how it does cooperative story telling .

There is something quite interesting about games with tough subjects. I already own This War of mine and after one play you realise the experience takes on a whole new meaning.
