CATCHAPLANE , THE BOARD GAME ABOUT AIRLINES.
Catchaplane is a game with simple strategies in which Airlines try to fly the most passengers to their destination and cause delays to competitors. Decisions vary between being the first to take to the skies with fewer passengers and land at Frankfurt to pick up passengers in transit or wait to depart with a full complement of passengers and hope to escape the attentions of competitor airlines. Beware pilots that are not nasty but enjoy a bit of nip and tuck. Watch out for natural hazards, such as the pilot, who loses radio contact while listening to Hotel California on the plane’s radio.
- Play testing;
The game was play tested at the UK Games Expo 2017. It was well received apart from one person, who thought it resembled strategic ludo! Additional game mechanics have been identified, so a considerable amount of play testing remains to be done.
- UK Games Expo ;
Scenes from the 2017 Expo showing play taking place with Matt , who became a director of the company in July 2017. Will the Legend, the 2017 Junior Fyzuntu Champion, assists him.
We have identified some cost savings in component parts . Our team will introduce mechanics to speed up game times. We will also introduce more humour. Development will be undertaken through 2018. Production is planned for 2019.
This is the third year that members of the Fyzuntu team have been at the UK Games Expo,. This has proved to be rewarding and fun to be there.
