Battledeck captivates PAX23
October 2023 saw the unveiling of Battledeck, our card and dice battle game, at Australia’s premier event for video and tabletop gaming, PAX23 (Penny Arcade Expo).
Over the course of three exhilarating days, more than 80,000 enthusiasts flocked to the Melbourne Convention Centre, transforming it into a vibrant hub of gaming excitement.
In the spirit of adventure our team embarked on a road trip in the Ghoulmobile, a journey that raised a few eyebrows as we wound along the Princes Highway on Australia’s south east coast. If you spotted a big furry yeti eating hot ships in Ulladulla, or wandering the streets of Eden – that was us!
Battledeck took centre stage at the booth of Tabletop Game Designers Australia (TGDA), an organisation committed to championing Australian tabletop game design, development, and commercialisation. For any aspiring Aussie game designer, TGDA offers an invaluable platform for networking and learning. Join the conversation on their Discord or Facebook channels and become a part of the vibrant community.
The atmosphere at PAX23 was electric, with an amalgamation of sounds, lights, costumes, and games pounding the senses. Battledeck was incredibly well received, as we introduced it to a diverse audience of both enthusiasts and industry professionals. It was also an amazing opportunity to exchange stories and ideas with fellow game designers, providing a unique insight into the rich tapestry of creativity that defines this industry.
As the curtains close on PAX23, we’re honoured to have been a small part of it. Battledeck’s journey is just beginning, and we look forward to sharing it with enthusiasts and gamers around the world. The future is bright for Australian tabletop gaming, and with events like PAX23, the horizon holds boundless opportunities for creators, designers, and players alike.
