Board Game Redesign Finalists
The 2015 Board Game Redesign has reached the final stages. Out of all the entrants these 5 games were selected to go forward to demo at UK Games Expo on 29th, 30th and 31st May. These games made the most of the components and you can see the games and try them out during trade hours in the Monarch Suite. One of these will be crowned the winner at UK Games Expo. The winning game will then get a print and video review from Little Metal Dog Show and the designer a year long mentorship from Surprised Stare Games.
Stock 'n' Roll by Adam Porter
In Stock 'n' Roll players are investors looking to make the best deals by assessing risk, manipulating markets, and turning profits into gold! Stock 'n' roll is a fast-paced dice-rolling game for 3-5 players, which plays in under an hour.
Gnolems by Bevan Clatworthy
Gnomes love gems, but they love gold more! Use the elemental Gnolems to operate the Machine, earn gems, manipulate the market and build your own device to sell your Gems at the best possible price. The Gnome with the most gold will be the victor!
I heard you like moving gnomes, so move a gnome to move a gnome to move a gnome to remove tokens by Behrooz Shahriari
A game of forward planning and deduction. Move a gnome to move a gnome to move a gnome to remove tokens to hopefully win.
Urgencia by Neil Palframan, Sarah Hurst, Ian Taylor, Rebecca Taylor.
In Urgencia, players compete to take on the role of the emergency services. Each player must recruit personnel, acquire equipment, build facilities and train their squad as they move around the city attempting to squash the threats of crime, fire, insurgency and medical emergencies before their rivals.
Treasure Hunters by Marta Borowiecka
The Treasure Hunters is an adventure game, where you take part in collecting gems to complete the quest while avoiding keepers gaze. Your task is to control gnomes and their abilities and discover treasures in the tower and then stash them in the hideaway place in the market.
UK Games Expo would like to thank Leisure Games, Surprised Stare and The Little Metal Dog Show for their hard work and time in organising and running the event.
The Board Game Redesign Competition will run again in 2015/2016. Full details later today.
