The UK Games Expo is nearly here again! (at the NEC Birmingham, 1st-3rd June) This isn't my personal anticipation list, I asked everyone what they'd like to tell you about, and here it is.

The stand numbers for the publishers relate to this page:
http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/exhibitorlist.php

There are a lot of pages to go through! If you're trying to find something in particular, clicking "Titles Only" and searching for it might help

OR soon you can use the fantastic Tabletop Together tool here: https://tabletoptogether.com/tool/ It's a great way to make your own list of interests for the Expo

If there's something missing or incorrect, please let me know at expo@slickerdrips.co.uk and I'll get it sorted

I also make videos about many many board games here: youtube.com/c/slickerdrips and if I've done one for a game on this list I've linked it. But hey, this took a lot of time!

While I'm on the subject, the yearly Kickstarter for my channel is now running here https://kck.st/2H28BvF until the 19th of June. If you found the list helpful and are so inclined, you could head on over there and make it possible for me to keep doing all this next year!

Stand 1-K14

For Sale
Designer: Jonathan L Franklin, Phillip Melchers

Imagine if you could embody a hero character with the power to challenge or otherwise embarrass your friends. But be careful, for those same friends wield powerful item cards that threaten to change the game at any moment! Now combine this with a leveling system to keep it competitive and a damage system to make it vindictive and this is BARPIG: The Unholy Result of a One Night Stand Between Card-Based Role-Playing Games and a Mostly Ridiculous Party.

Inspired from games like Munchkin, Exploding Kittens, and Ring of Fire, BARPIG joins these greats as the pig-fect way to liven up any party. 

Players take turns based on a dice roll to come one level closer to the winning level 5, whilst challenging fellow players to silly group activities and challenges. Lose a challenge, and your character will suffer. Help is at hand however, in form of fun and wacky items. These have a multitude of effects like changing the group challenge, stealing the winning dice roll, or even cancelling another just-played item.

Released to market after a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, and a spectacular presence at the Essen SPIEL (Germany) and Spellenspektakel (Netherlands) conventions in 2017, BARPIG has already sold over 800 copies and continues to be a popular at retailers and events.

Come visit our very own Medieval BARPIG Tavern at Stand 1-K14, and see for yourself how what started as a series of drunken puns written down on a bar napkin one fateful night has evolved into a truly outrageous game. Oh, and there will be pigs!

BARPIG is available now worldwide for €20 at https://shop.barpig.eu.

Stand 2-B19

Demo
Designer: Steven Medway
5-20 players
(max limit of 10 per game at UKGE)

There will be games of Blood on the Clocktower running throughout all of UKGE for new players to try out. You can find them in Hall 2 running games every hour - just look for the banner.

Blood on the Clocktower is a new social deduction bluffing game for 5 to 20 players (best with 8-12) on opposing teams of Good and Evil, overseen by a Storyteller player who conducts the action and makes crucial decisions. It has its origins as variant of classic Werewolf but has ratcheted up the complexity and inclusivity, and it now stands in its own right as a wholly new game. Players have a multitude of different paths for bluffing and strategising - there is no one single best practice for playing and winning. Players are never eliminated, staying in the action to the very end even if their characters are killed, influencing the outcome of the game as ghosts trying to win from beyond the grave. You can enter a game after it starts a powerful Traveller character with unusual talents and questionable allegiances. Each character comes with their own special ability and no two players in a game are ever the same character. The unique mechanics of drunkenness and poisoning means that players can never be 100% certain that their own information is correct, or whether someone else is lying or just plain wrong.

Stand 1-D9a

The Dice Dungeon is a race to be the first to find a route through a perilous dungeon. A brave adventurer, you will encounter monsters from terrible dragons guarding hoards of gold to pesky little orcs, ancient, undiscovered treasure chambers, cursed glyphs. Lots of stuff.

As you explore you also come across the items you need to get through and learn spells that can alter the very corridors in front of you. But beware; you are not the only one in the dungeon and your opponent will have a very different view of what it looks like…

You begin the game with an empty grid of thirty-six square holes (the Dungeon Waffle), plus a bag of thirty-six Dungeoneering Dice. The Dungeon Waffle is placed between you and your opponent, so each of you can see a different side of it. You then take it in turns to draw a die from the bag, roll it and use whatever you roll to either add to the dungeon map, alter the dungeon map or add to your resources.

Your aim is to score more experience points than your opponent over one or more games. During a game you try to map out a route on your side of the waffle from one edge to the other, and collect weapons and equipment to deal with whatever you might encounter on the way. When adding to the dungeon map you will change the map seen on both sides of the Dungeon Waffle, hopefully helping your route, while hindering your opponent’s.

To this day it still remains to be discovered and is worth £10,000!
Will you be the one to  solve the clues, codes and secrets of HiddenHoard and be the first person to claim the treasure?
The treasure is hidden within the bounds of the UK mainland. You do not need a spade to find this treasure you only need a grid reference.
You can discover the whereabouts of the prize from the warmth of your armchair.  The game board contains the full cryptic solution to find real treasure.
Following the guidance of the encrypted message send your grid reference solution and a written statement of the method used to solve the puzzle via ‘Contact a Pirate’.

Stand 2-A19
Designer: Jamie Frew

Legendary are the tales told of The Hellfire Club. Since time immemorial we have decided the fates of Empires. How times have changed...

In The Hellfire Club two to six players take on the roles of the destitute final members of an ancient aristocratic secret society as they recount­ the tales of their greatest adventures to the patrons of the shadiest public houses of Old London Town. Drawing on the cards in their hands for inspiration, the players will weave an ever more elaborate (although far from honest) tale of daring and adventure in the hope that the drinking den’s patrons will offer them a penny for their woes. As competition for the pennies on offer increases, so too do the exaggerations and outright lies the players will tell about their role in the story in the hope of making themselves seem more deserving. But watch out – at any time another player can challenge your version of the story by playing a less impressive card from their own hand thereby revealing your exaggeration and taking the rewards for the story that would otherwise have been yours! When the tale reaches it’s thundering climax, whoever has been given the most pennies wins the game!

--

The Old Hellfire Club is a storytelling card game featuring push-your-luck and memory mechanic that add a spark of tension to an otherwise hilarious game. At its heart is the deck of 100 Boast cards. The Boast Deck includes 100 cards in 10 suits themed around a full spectrum of Victorian melodrama from motives and perils to crimes, insults, and teatime and each illusstrated with an excerpt from an original Victorian era masterpiece! Players cooperate to tell a story including the plot elements from their own cards, but opponents can challenge the active player’s boasts by playing less impres­sive cards of the same suit with lower values. Thus, lies are unmasked, embarrassing truths revealed and any pennies earned by the active player that turn are lost!

Wreck and Ruin is a vehicle miniature board game, set in the not-too distant future of a post-apocalyptic world. 2-4 players can choose between 4 factions and make up their convoy from the 4 classes of vehicles available. scouts are fast and can shoot on the move but are weak, buggies can repair other vehicles. wreckers are powerful vehicles designed to crush their opponents. big rigs are slow but have strong attacks and can soak up damage and still keep going too!
the game is played on a series of tiles which allows for different challenges each time you play. Fight for control over salvage sites placed on the map, counting as victory points but also provide salvage cards
Each player has action points that they use to move, repair, shoot, or ram their opponents. tactical positioning affects how many dice you roll, improving your chances of success.
Salvage cards can be bought or found, special equipment which can help you in your moment of need. as well as your enemies the world is equally dangerous, event cards affect the entire board and can hinder your plans, and on the rare occasion also help you!

Designer: Aigar Alaveer, Martti Lauri

After the capitulation of Imperial Germany in 1918, German representatives formally handed over political power to the Estonian Provisional Government. On 16 November 1918, an order was given by the Russian Red Army HQ to follow the retreating German units. On 28 November 1918, the 6th Red Rifle Division struck the border town of Narva, which marked the beginning of the Estonian War of Independence.

1918: Death on the Rails is a challenging, fast-paced block wargame for two players that reflects the struggle between the Estonian and the Russian SFSR units during the Estonian War of Independence. In the game, you maneuver units on a hex map, trying to be the first to achieve the different scenario goals.

When playing 1918: Death on the Rails, it becomes clear just how significant the role of Estonian armored trains was during this defining period in Estonian history.

You are the top manager at one of the big oil companies, tasked with leading your enterprise into a future without oil. With peak oil looming ahead, you try to squeeze the last drops from oil fields around the world to gather the resources to invest into various oil replacement technologies. While you may try to emerge from the coming crisis by regular means, your competitors will most probably not, forcing you to dirty your hands as well."

In Upstream, each player controls a bank of salmon swimming upstream to lay their eggs where they were born. During their journey, they will face hungry bears, fierce birds of prey, and patient fishermen, all of which they must avoid in order to survive. These are not the only hazards the salmon must face as each round of play the strength of the water flow will cause some pieces of the river to fall back, making it impossible for some fishes to make their way upstream.

Designer: Nick Case

In the lands of the North, where the Black Rocks stand guard against the cold sea, in the dark night that is very long the Men of the Northlands sit by their great log fires and they tell a tale... '

So began each of the Sagas of Noggin the Nog, in which the crown of Noggin, Prince of the Nogs is sought by his wicked uncle Nogbad the Bad who devises evil plots to threaten the safety of the kingdom, in order to force Noggin to give up his crown. In this game, players are the noble Lords of the north, looking to assist Noggin however they can in his adventures with resources and wise council.

Players use their influence to take actions on the board which as a back drop is Peter Firmin's classic hand drawn map of the Northlands. The time taken on each action is plotted on a roundel which acts as the game clock, changes the turn order and progresses the seasons. However Nogbad is never far away from the source of the Kingdom's troubles and Noggin must use his cleverness, intuition and resourcefulness to thwart Nogbad and confirm his position as King of the Nogs. The game ends when Noggin secures the crown or if Nogbad manages to get there first.

In The Sagas of Noggin the Nog, players must work together to successfully complete the adventures revealed by the saga cards which occur each season. By offering much needed resources and making key decisions that effect the progress of the adventures, players will, if successful add to Noggin's popularity. Should their decision be unwise or they take too long the popular vote might sway toward Nogbad.

The Game will include all of the characters from the TV series, Noggin, his Queen Nooka, Knut their son, Thor Nogson the grumpy Captain of the Royal Guard, Graculus the Great Green Bird, Olaf the Lofty, the Court inventor, and Romf, the little man from the Hot Water Valley.

These adventures are all based upon the books and stories developed by Oliver Postgate & Peter Firmin. The game is fully licensed has access to all artwork previously released in books and film and includes over 50 new pieces of new artwork commissioned from Peter Firmin specifically for the game. The game has two levels, a family game with simplified rule set and a gamer's version with deeper strategy options.

Absolute Dice

This is the name of the company and the series of games they make! Here's what they told me:

"The company was founded in August 2016 with our first two games Absolute Dice Original and Absolute Dice Word. Then came our first two themed games Absolute Dice Sport and Absolute Dice Christmas.

Our latest games Absolute Dice Holiday, Absolute Dice Kids, and Absolute Dice Love are available on Amazon.

PLUS you'll be able to go over to the stand and play, and if you win you get to keep the game

Demo
Designer: Joseph Norris

Play a Nightlancer, and underworld operative, in the dystopia of 2099 Birmingham. Exploit your contacts and deal on the black market to boost your capabilities so you can take on risky missions for the big money. Take on ruthless corporations, corrupt authorities and savage shockpacks. Invest in your opportunities and prospects to build yourself up so when the crumbling society collapses, you can escape and leave behind the underworld life.

Nightlancer is a competitive cyberpunk game for 2-4 players, 120+ minutes. It has elements of strategy, risk taking, character building and take that. There are optional rules for solitaire and cooperative play.

Nightlancer will be on Kickstarter from the 31st of May, so you can try the game at UKGE and decide if you want to help support it's production!

Ali Baba's Gems
Demo

Ali Baba's Gems is delightful, devious family and gateway game of bluffing. Using senses of touch, sight, hearing and facial expressions, players will bluff their way to try and steal the most gems! But watch out! Receive too many cursed gems and you may end up gaining more than what you bargained for!

A medium weight euro designed by prolific game designers and SdJ nominated: Matt Dunstan and Brett Gilbert. Featuring a physical conveyer belt mechanic and wooden chocolate pieces! Although still at an early stage of graphical and art development, the game is a great blend of physical tactile pieces and euro mechanics.
