Meet the big boys! A UK Games Expo seminar

Organising seminars at conventions is hard work, though they’re also tremendous fun and, when one has the privilege of sharing the space with personalities like the ones in this seminar, it becomes a joy.

This seminar takes four influential names in the board and role playing games industry and puts them in touch with the public, answer questions and and challenge views you didn’t know were there.

Unboxing Mercante, from AEG

The last (so far) in the Tempest series of unboxing videos. Mercante, from Jeff Tidball, put you in control of a merchant house and sends you to do business and become the greatest in Tempest.

Something that’s probably easier said than done!

Unboxing: Dominare, from AEG

Another game in the city of Tempest game from Alderac Entertainment Group, Dominare.

Designed by Jim Pinto, Dominare puts the players in the place of conspirators aiming to control the city. Use your agents and expand your influence and control the metropolis that many say is the biggest city in the world.

Now all this sounds very well and proper, but is the game worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it?

Unboxing Courtier

One of the games from AEG based in the city of Tempest, Courtier will have you take the place of an influence broker who’s mission is to manipulate the elite of the city and get them do what you need them to.

Needless to say this is a rather competitive game, and it is for 2 to 4 players to enjoy. Or endure if you’re the loser.

The box looks seriously lovely from the outside, but is the game worth the money you have to pay to get your hands on it?
