UK Games Expo 2019


This year at UK Games Expo (UKGE) we will not only have Summoner's Isle on sale, but we will also be showing off Sumo Gnomes! A game we plan to take to Kickstarter (KS) later this year :D

We'll have a table dedicated to playing Summoner's Isle, the small box area control game of creature summoning goodness. We took a version of Summoner's Isle to UKGE last year and the response we had from visitors encouraged us to go to KS with it and try for a retail launch! The KS went beyond what I hoped and we were able to improve the graphics, upgrade the components and add in a few extras that we would never of been possible without community support - Thank you! - Come along and check it out.

We'll also have the new game we have been working on, a simple dice based game of Sumo wrestling Gnomes. If the feedback we get goes is what we hope it will be, then we'll be looking to take Sumo Gnomes to KS later this year. As a bonus we have worked really hard to 'hand' make some pre-release versions - pictured below - the final version will look a little different as we are planning for it be in a box rather than a bag, but saying that, if the KS does well, then we'll supply both :D

If you happen to be attending UKGE, please do come along to Stand 1-214 and say hi, we are a very small team and a friendly face is always appreciated.

All the best

The traits for which we are known

I like to keep busy, most commonly not doing the things I really should be doing, but still, if I do not have a project to work on my brain gets itchy. Over the years I've made furniture, jewelry, written (very) short stories, designed T-shirts, screen printed, made costumes, designed board games and more. All of which have been purely for the love of creating something. The aim is for Peculiarity to become a place where some of my ventures have a more permanent place to live and will hopefully pique your interest.

Sample copy of Summoner's Isle

Bubble wrap goodness!   I am very happy to share with you the sample that arrived from WinGo Games! There were a couple of things not quite right but these have been discussed with the manufacturer and are already under control :)   The box itself is sturdy and the colours have come out really nice, the Spot UV on the front and sides are as subtle as I hoped when caught by the light (so shiny!)    The tokens are fantastic, the colours are rich and the alignment of the punch cuts are spot on. I am very happy with these, the linen finish is a nice touch too :)     Next up we have the token/dice bag, the reference cards and the custom dice. No problems with the bag, it's a good size, the print is great and it feels good quality. The reference cards here were cut a little off centre and the dice are the wrong colours. Both of these things have been discussed with WinGo though and were corrected before the sample arrived - The dice colours will be closer to those of
