May has been busy here at Coiledspring gearing up for UK Games Expo 2022 and celebrating many award nominations!

Read on for a UKGE roundup and other things we have been up to.
UK Games Expo 2022

From the 3rd - 5th June, the Coiledspring team attended UK Games Expo 2022! Hosting two stands, plenty of demo games and premiering a giant King of Tokyo, the event was a huge success. 

We had a lot of fun over the weekend demoing games, meeting new people, seeing familiar faces and even picking up some awards!

UKGE Award Winning Games

This year we were delighted to take home some UKGE Awards;

Best Children's Game Peoples choice AND Judges Choice went to Quacks and Co.Quedlinburg Dash by Schmidt.

New Release, Get on Board won Peoples Choice for Best Strategic Board Game and Last Message picked up Peoples Choice for Best Party Game, both titles from IELLO.


Just in case you missed these games, here's a quick refresher. 

Magic Maze Kids - in an experiment gone awry, the King is now a frog and it’s your job to fix him! Gather your friends for a cooperative adventure to find potion ingredients to cure him. Everyone controls all the heroes, but each player holds a unique direction card. 

Quacks and Co. - it’s market day, and the kids are taking part in the annual BIG race. Feed your four legged animal friends to entice them forward along the track. But watch out, some of the food might make them nap along the way!

A battle to the bitter end has broken out in Hell’s Kitchen between iconic Marvel masters; Daredevil, Bullseye and Elektra. It’s time to settle the score, but remember… in battle there are no equals!

New Releases

Velonimo - get on your bike and ready to race up the mountain to the summit. Score the most points to win the coveted peas and carrots jersey. But watch out, your opponents are trying to knock you off your seat!

Crazy Tower - will it topple or hold fast! With careful hands, concentrate and work together to build up a safe structure. All players, except for one…the traitor. Can they make the tower collapse on another players turn? Or is the tower secure?

Get ready to Monki around! Deep in the heart of the jungle a battle is raging around the temple to become the leader of the tribe. Seek the coveted, precious fruit to win! Take risks with the fruit, but beware, gluttony could play tricks on you…

'We love Outfoxed! It has excellent learning opportunities for younger gamers and is really fun. This is definitely one staying in the favouritefoe fun learning library!'

Favourite Foe reviews Outfoxed from Gamewright!
'For returning fans or comic book fans, Unmatched: Redemption Row is just fantastic. The three new characters work extremely well and offer new and varied strategies for players to explore.'

An epic review of Unmatched Marvel: Redemption Row from Nerdly!
'Component wise the chunky domino tiles help create vividly coloured, eye catching kingdoms. These draw people in to want to play and then the wooden resources for the totem and tribe modes add that something special on top.'
