Third Time’s The Charm

Pegasus Spiele attends the UK’s largest hobby games convention for the third year in a row

Friedberg/Birmingham, June 1: From to June 2nd to 4th 2017, the UK Games Expo will take place at the NEC in Birmingham. For the third time, German publisher Pegasus Spiele will attend the exhibition, where they will release the English-only versions of Design Town and Guns & Steel. At booth D4 in Hall 1, the two new card games as well as many other recent titles and classics from Pegasus Spiele and their partners will be demoed on all three days of the convention. In addition, visitors will be able to buy the games directly at the Pegasus Spiele booth (in cooperation with Meeples’ Corner) as well as from other retailers at the show. Trade halls of the UK Games Expo will be open on Friday 11.00 – 6 pm, Saturday 9.30 – 6 pm and Sunday 9.30 – 4 pm. 

After the release of the connoisseur games Design Town and Guns & Steel in German at SPIEL 2016, both games will now be available in English at this year’s UK Games Expo. For more variety, the first expansion is already included in both games. These small card games allow for surprisingly deep gaming experiences and let players build either a city or an entire civilization, using different variations of the popular deckbuilding mechanism. During the UK Games Expo, visitors can vote for both games in the Expo Awards 2017, which will be awarded for the best new games presented at the show.

Apart from these brand new releases, recent titles such as Santo Domingo, Candy Match, Elements, Chariot Race and Supérieur (the card game from Markus Heitz’ newest thriller Des Teufels Gebetbuch) will be available for demo rounds, accompanied by classics like Istanbul, Port Royal or Fungi. From Pegasus Spiele’s editorial partners, Railroad Revolution (What’s your game?) and The Oracle of Delphi (H@ll Games) will also be available, as well as a whole lot of popular eggertspiele games such as Mombasa, Great Western Trail, Village, Camel Up, Animals on Board and their newest release Frogriders.

Furthermore, gaming highlights at the Pegasus Spiele booth will include the extra-large version of the gorgeously illustrated card drafting game Sheep & Thief, and giant versions of the children’s games Mmm! (nominated as Kinderspiel des Jahres 2016) and Wizardry to the Power of Three (recommended as Kinderspiel des Jahres 2017). For solo players and puzzle enthusiasts, three Brains challenges will be waiting.
