Dungeonology: players are Scholars sent to study unlikely places, populated by mythic races.

Ares Games will attend Essen Spiel 2019 (October 24-27, Essen, Germany) presenting its upcoming new games, and its latest releases, at booth E-100, in Hall 3, and booth C-114, in Hall 2.

Quartermaster General Second Edition and Dungeonology - The Expedition are two upcoming games, presented for the first time at the show.

Quartermaster General Second Edition revamps the award-winning, fast-paced strategy game by Ian Brody, game, originally released five years ago. Players control one or more countries on either the Axis or Allied team. This Second Edition improves multiple elements of the original, while keeping all the qualities that made it critically acclaimed.

Dungeonology - The Expedition is an atypical dungeon crawler where the characters are scholars challenged to submit the best thesis on a mysterious Civilization in a remote Dungeon to become the new professor of University of Rocca Civetta.

Tripods & Triplanes: the War of the Worlds in Wings of Glory.

The recently released WW1 Wings of Glory Tripods & Triplanes, a new game of WW1 airplanes fighting against colossal Martian Tripods, in a crossover of Wings of Glory with the novel "The War of the Worlds”, will debut in Europe with the “second invasion” Martian tripods: the Mk.III Squid and Mk.IV Cuttlefish, reinforcing the alien invaders.

For Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles, the combat miniature game based on the Battlestar Galactica™ TV series, visitors will find at Essen Spiel the second wave of Spaceship Packs, adding to the game the Colonial Raptor and the Cylon Heavy Raider, each of them featured in three different versions. Visitors will also have the chance to see the next BSG starship pack, Viper Mk.VII, releasing in December 2019 in three versions - Pegasus, Pegasus Veteran and Apollo.

On Saturday, 26th, at 10:00, Ares’ booth in Hall 3 will also become a galactic battlefield for the fourth “jump” of Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles – the “33“ Campaign”, inspired by “33”, the first episode of the Reimagined series.

Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles - 33 Campaign

The Battlestar Galactica and the rest of the Colonial fleet are relentlessly pursued by Cylons; 33 minutes after each faster-than-light jump, they arrive again, trying to exterminate what’s left of Mankind. The 33 events are held at all major shows Ares is attending during 2019 – each of them is a “jump” – the Colonial fleet is jumping from one event to the next, and the battle continues, involving hundreds of BSG fans around the world.

The participation is free: no previous knowledge of the game rules is required and spaceships to play with are provided by Ares Games. All participating players will receive an exclusive “Admiral Adama” promo card as a reminder of the event, as well as a limited-edition event promo card, a discount coupon to bring the ship they’ve battled in home, and additional prizes offered by Ares and by the co-sponsor of the campaign, Slitherine Software, publisher of the official videogame for PC and consoles “Battlestar Galactica – Deadlock".

Many other games released this year, such as the card games Nightmarium Revised Edition and Monsters vs. Heroes volume 2: Cthulhu Mythos, the latest expansions for Sword & Sorcery - including the last campaign set, Vastaryous’ Lair - and new WW1 Wings of Glory Airplane Packs will be available, and several exclusive promo items will be offered together with purchases at the show - the promo card “Starbuck” with Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles Starter Set, the “Solo Card Set” with Master of the Galaxy, the alternate “Frodo” card with Hunt for the Ring, “Treebeard” promotional mini-expansion with War of the Ring Second Edition and Lords of Middle-earth, “Tidings not Burdens” promo for Warriors of Middle-earth, and “Bubi” and “Whoopi” cards with Last Friday.
