Here’s the second part of our series dedicated to the 2018 edition of UK Games Expo.
First me meet again with Chris Birch from Modiphius following the recommendation of both Jason Bulmahn (Paizo Publishing) and Jon Lunn (Elite Dangerous RPG) in Part 1. There is much at foot at the London-based publisher/distributor with Star Trek Adventures, “Fallout: Wasteland Warfare“, “Kung Fu Panda The Board Game“, their contribution to the distribution White Wolf‘s new edition of “Vampire The Masquerade” alongside Fria Ligan, their Kickstarter campaign for “John Carter of Mars” and more;
Next, I paid a visit to Burning Games and congratulated Carlos GQ for the recent success of their crowdfunding campaign for “Dragons Conquer America“. The game is still to be delivered by the end of 2018, but the team has already several other projects in store with the “Corball – The Zero Gravity Sport” boardgame, the hope to see “Dragons Conquer Europe” as well as (EXCLUSIVE SCOOP by The Rolistes Podcast ) an ambitious miniature game / board game set in pre-colonial Mesoamerica;
Then, I nearly suffocated James Edward Raggi IV as he quickly gulped his iced drink to tell me about the latest publications for Lamentations of the Flame Princess, such as “Fish Fish F***ers“, and advised me on my next purchase (I opted for “Broodmother SkyFortress“);
Finally, I met Grant Howitt & Mary Hamilton (sadly briefly as friendly customers needed her for their purchase) from the UK Indie RPG League and Rowan, Rook & Decard. They recommended a pleathora of indie games including “Spire“, “Jason Statham’s Big Vacation“, “Legacy: Life Among the Ruins 2nd Edition“, “Pigsmoke: A Roleplaying Game of Sorcerous Academia” and “Lovecraftesque“.
