Coiledspring Games is delighted to announce that two of its top games were voted best in their categories at this year’s UK Games Expo at the NEC in Birmingham.

The UK Games Expo, the UK’s largest tabletop games convention, took place from 1st – 3rd June and over 39,000 people attended across the three days.

The award-winning games were:

- Photosynthesis (Blue Orange): Winner of Judges Choice, Best New Board Game (Euro style)

- Queendomino (Blue Orange): Winner of People’s Choice, Best New Expansion

Roger Martin, Managing Director, Coiledspring Games:

"We have had a very successful three days at the Expo. Our games provided entertainment and enjoyment for so many people and we are absolutely delighted that Photosynthesis and Queendomino have been voted as favours in their categories.

Photosynthesis was one of the most sought-after games on the floor this year. It is also one of the most visually striking. Queendomino is a wonderful game which is both a standalone game and an expansion of the 2017 Spiel des Jahres recipient, Kingdomino".

Céline Casel, Communications Manager, Blue Orange:

“We are so pleased that both the judges and the gamers have chosen Blue Orange games for awards at Expo. Photosynthesis is a wonderfully unique and creative strategy concept game. Queendomino walks in the path of its predecessor Kingdomino, simple but deep and challenging. Both games promote our value: Hot game, Cool planet. These awards show that our knowhow is valuated and incite us to pursue the development of fun, simple, and smart games! “

In addition, Coiledspring Games had the privilege of showcasing the highly anticipated RAIDS at the UK Games Expo. This was the world premiere of the IELLO game and the inventors, Brett Gilbert and Matthew Dunstan, were there to sign copies and play the game with fans. RAIDS will be out on sale in the UK in August.

Roger Martin, Managing Director, Coiledspring Games:

“We have all been looking forward to exhibiting RAIDS at Expo. The feedback from both retailers and gamers alike is that it is a truly fascinating and exciting game and I’m sure it will become hugely successful upon release”.

Brett J. Gilbert, one of the inventors of RAIDS:

“We really enjoyed our time at Expo: it’s always fun to meet and chat with gamers who are so passionate. RAIDS is one of our favourites, and the top-notch production makes the game a joy to play”.

Attendees of the Expo were also able to play and purchase games from the exciting new LOKI range for kids from IELLO. SOS Dino, Troll & Dragon and Farmini all proved to be immensely popular, enthralling the younger participants in particular at the Expo.
