We attended Essen Spiel ’13 board game fair again with other great fellas from Arctic Union. Our trusted journalists from GMS Magazine picked us up and made a wonderful special episode about Finnish board games.
Total Film ranked Iron Sky the Board Game as the 6th best board game based on a film!
There were 50 titles, older classics and latest hit games. Our design was triumphed by very good games, but we also left some renowned titles behind.
We designed this game to have good replay value. It does not follow the exact events of the film, but instead gives the players chance to take part in the war happening on the surface of Earth. Players can customise their playing session with optional rules. It is great to see that Total Film pointed this out too!
Our anticipated new release Iron Sky -the boardgame was revealed to the world at Essen Spiel ’12 boardgame fair. The game was in great demand and interested a lot of people. Iron Sky was played non-stop at multible tables through the duration of the fair. After gaining some foothold, the conquest spread from Essen towards the rest of Europe and to Northern America.
Revision Games was included in the Arctic Union, which is a coalition of Finnish boardgame publishers. Our stand was one of the largest in hall 4, and because of the collaboration, Finnish game design gained a great deal of visibility.
Iron Sky board game tower begun to drain during Sunday.
A teaser on what’s coming
We also had a sneak peek on what’s coming: Two games of the horror genre – Pandemonium in New Arkadia and Wall of the Dead. Both games had some playtesting and we thank the players for the feedback!
