Licence2Play Festive Edition 2011 show guide

Event Details

Game Showcases

Gundam Gage-ing Battle Base

Definitely the highlight of all the games on display, the Gundam Gage-ing Battle Base game allows you to scan your Gundam model kits which have the Gage-ing chip, enabling you to play your Gundam model in a battle simulation game.

Tactics Anthem Online

Tactics Anthem is the first online trading card game developed in Singapore. According to the fact sheet I received, the game’s “revolutionary gameplay uses a twin-deck duel mechanism and is focused heavily on battle formations over the conventional attack strength of an individual creature”. Sounds a lot like Sanguo card game available in arcades, but taking place online from the comfort of your home. Neat.

Other Games
