The box lid for Fyzuntu Games' Catchaplane board game
The box llid designed by Sarah Lawrence

Catchaplane is a simple strategy game in which Airlines try to fly the most passengers to their destination while causing 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.

This was 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.

Scenes from the 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.

The game was play tested at the UK Games Expo. 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.
