Medusa Games is based in Birmingham UK and is developing board and card games. Currently we have several game projects we are working on and our first game was released in 2010.

Great Fire: London 1666

The players are men of wealth and standing who own property around London. They can use the trained bands to fight the fire, use demolitions to destroy blocks of housing to prevent the fire flowing or turn a blind eye and allow the fire to spread and damage rival’s property. Victory can belong to the player with the most property left but putting out fires can give you a boost. In addition each player will have several hidden objectives which might include helping another player or protecting parts of the city.

The Great Museum

Players take on the roles of the owners of the world’s great museums. They vie with each other to build the best museum in the world by collecting artefacts – prehistoric, art, jewellery, statues, sarcophagi, inscriptions, weapons and pottery.

With these they try to put on the best exhibitions to attract the largest crowds and one day hear the title of the Great Musuem.

This is a new game in development. A prototype will be on show at UK Games Expo in May.

The Nine Worlds

This is a new game in development.

The god Loki is imprisoned for his crimes and so now the gods of Asgard are looking for a new god to take his place.

In 'The Nine Worlds' the players are candidates attempting to become gods in the Norse universe. Each player comes from one of the Nine Worlds. They are humans, dwarves, light elves, dark elves, fire spirits, giants, Vana and ice trolls. They each have a special power linked to their race. Each world also has its own function which all the players can use by visiting that world.

Each turn players travel between The Nine Worlds. They activate the world powers and then they may undertake a challenge to impress the gods.

They can also appeal to the gods for favours, obtain powerful artifacts and magic potions and take on each other in combat.

Who will impress the gods most and become the new god in Asgard?

A prototype will be on show at UK Games Expo in May.
