This month we are back with another staff spotlight! We asked Cameron Ross, our Sales Executive, to give us an insight into his top five games from our range. Although he only joined the Coiledspring Team back in April, he has already played a lot of our games, and even demo-ed at UK Games Expo!
Over to you Cam!
I played Unmatched for the first time recently and loved it so much I got myself a copy of the game. Unmatched is a game of strategy and I love the way there are multiple strategies you can use to win.
You and your opponent’s battle against each other, each person using their own deck of cards and special abilities to attack, defend and scheme their
The rule is no communication whilst you and the other players lay your cards down in numerical order. Having demoed The Mind at UK Games Expo this year, I realised it’s definitely one of my favourites.
This game really does test how well you can read other people and I love that the game can last 30 seconds or much longer depending on how in sync you really are!
Forbidden Island was one of the first games I played with the Coiledspring Team and is another cooperative game that I really enjoy. You move around the board, racing to collect all the treasure before the island sinks beneath you. It’s difficult though, certainly a challenge to win!
The gameplay and theme remind me of Indiana Jones so it is an instant hit for me!
I enjoy games that require quick thinking and Anomia is just that! A simple game to learn and pick up, but with a few people playing this game can really keep you on the edge of your seat.
Taking turns, each player will place a card down face up to reveal a symbol and if this symbol matches the previous card you race to name an example of the category shown. It is bizarre how once put under pressure you really do forget even the simplest of things.
I love the Helvetiq pocket collection and this game is another personal favourite of mine, not just because it was one of the first I learnt to demo, but because there are so many ways the game can go. Bandido another cooperative game where you work as a team to lay cards and stop the prisoner Bandido escaping through tunnels.
Each card you lay must connect to one or more cards already on the table and must fit perfectly; every tunnel must line up with another tunnel. Depending on the cards you’re dealt this can much more difficult than it sounds!
