New dates for UK Games Expo 2021

In order to provide the best chance of running a physical show safely for all concerned, the UK Games Expo will now run from:

Friday 30th July to Sunday 1st August 2021.

 They are planning for two possible forms of a show. A normal show with as many of the features as you expect to see at a UKGE or a socially distanced event. This would include steps to make demos, tournaments and live shows distanced, wider aisles in the trade halls and reduced daily ticket numbers to keep everyone safe. We will follow local and national regulations and restrictions.

Until we know what is allowed we must plan for both eventualities but can't give you any more info until we know this ourselves.

Ticket sales will become available after Easter.

Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition

Stronghold Games have announced Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition will be coming to Kickstarter.

Ares Expedition is a standalone card version of Terraforming Mars that will keep its roots of engine building mechanics. 

Terraforming Mars creator Jacob Fryxelius returns alongside co-designers Sydney Engelstein and Nick Little to helm the gameplay of Ares Expedition, which is said to play in between 45 minutes to an hour with up to four people, and includes a solo mode.




Dune House Secrets

Featuring the co-operative game system used in Portal's award-winning Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game, Dune: House Secrets delivers a deeply thematic experience that drops one-to-five players in the middle of the highest stakes unfolding on the harsh desert planet of Arrakis.

Kickstarter Kickaround


An innovative branching narrative gamebook, set in a desolate post-apocalyptic world. How will your journey end?

  • Alba is an adventure book, meaning the fiction is designed to bring readers/players to decisions of all sizes that will impact the rest of their story. Branching paths might introduce locations and characters who would otherwise go unnoticed had another choice been made. It's also meant to be played like a solo RPG, taken at a comfortable pace over multiple sessions.
