Ares Games will be at UK Games Expo this week (June 3rd-5th, 2022, Birmingham-UK, stands #1-302/1-305) presenting the new arrivals The Thing: The Board Game and Quartermaster General: 1914, and a host of recent releases and “evergreen” lines - War of the Ring, Wings of Glory and Sword & Sorcery. Two special events will be host at Ares’ booth: on Saturday, the worldwide preview of the awaited War of the Ring: The Card Game - expected to release in late 2022 - and a huge WW1 Wings of Glory “battle royale", on Sunday.

Masters of the Night: nominated for the UK Games Expo Awards.

Ares Games will be demoing the new games and recent releases like Diabolik – Heists and Investigations and Last One Alive, and also the solo-cooperative board game Masters of the Night, nominated for the UKGE Awards in the Best Boardgame (Strategic) category.

At Ares Games’ stand, attendees will also have the chance to get the last copies of the recent Sword & Sorcery Kickstarter release, Ancient Chronicles, including all the components of this new cycle: three campaign sets (Ancient Chronicles, Northwind Tales, and Myths of the Arena), new Heroes, multiple accessories and additional miniatures.

Special events

Ares's special events at UKGE 2022.

On Saturday, at 14:30, visitors can be the first ones to play the War of the Ring - The Card Game, a new multi-player game inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. Designed by Ian Brody, creator of the Quartermaster General series, the game will be as thematic as the best-selling War of the Ring Second Edition board game, but simpler, more portable and more accessible. The game is team based and asymmetrical: each player will control one or more of the factions in War of the Ring, either on the side of the Free Peoples or of the Shadow Armies, using a unique deck, reproducing the strengths and weaknesses of the specific factions they play with.

On Sunday, at 11:00, up to 24 attendees are invited to take part to the Battle of Birmingham, a big participation event for the WW1 Wings of Glory miniature game. Wings of Glory is a miniature game where players control one or more airplanes, taking to the skies to engage their opponents in aerial duels. The event is open to new players – Ares’ demo crew will help everyone to enter the battle in few minutes and an airplane miniature will be provided to the participants to play with.

In addition to the events at the stand, Roberto Di Meglio, Ares' Director of Production and co-designer and developer of War of the Ring game series, will hold the seminar "The Lord of the Rings, from a book trilogy to a board game trilogy", on Saturday at 11:00 at Toute Suite, NEC Exhibition Center. He will share insights on the past and future developments of these games: from War of the Ring, to Hunt for the Ring, to the upcoming War of the Ring -The Card Game.

Play with us at UK Games Expo, stand 1-302/1-305.
