Ares Games in this year's Essen released several new games.
An initial preview of Sword and Sorcery was presented in Essen, a collaborative epic fantasy game, which launched a Kickstarter campaign and has already reached its funding goals. In the game, which was designed by the creating team of Galaxy Defenders, 1-5 players take on the role of heroes with special powers that fight against the forces of evil.
At the same time the company also released 3 new titles and expansions. In particular, Odyssey - Wrath of Poseidon, a deduction game for 2-5 players, where players undertake the mission to return their ships back to Greece after the war. However, Poseidon has other plans and uses his powers to prevent it.
Jolly Roger - the game of Piracy & Mutiny is a fast game for 4-10 players where as other pirates, players are invited to gather as many treasures as they can in Tortuga - and nothing can stop them.
The company presented another game, which could be easily included in the series of children's games, Quickpick - Island of Monster Masks. In this game, players arrive on an island inhabited by strange creatures and try to adapt by wearing large masks with similar faces so as not to recognize them. In this effort the players will try to imitate sounds and funny faces so that they resemble as closely as possible to the settlers of the island.
As for the expansions, Ares Games presented Operation Strikeback! and Extinction Protocol, both expansions of their hit Galaxy Defenders. Finally they have also published the English version of Co-mix, a game that we saw last year from Horrible Games.
