2 weeks ago was the first day of Spiel fair 2014 in Essen, Germany.
And what a successful first day it was. We almost sold out in 4 of our 5 novelties and they were sold out at the end of the fair. Many people wanted to play a game of Abraca..What? and King’s Pouch and the tables were always full with people coming together and playing our games. It was a exciting time.
Each year, many games get released in these mad days in Essen. Each year there is a lot of excitement in the fair halls when the games for which you read everything you could gather and got excited for a long time finally gets avaiable for everybody. We had a lot of such encounters and met many great people who wanted to play our games.
Because this is really what Essen is about: meeting people. Meeting partners for possible distribution in other countries, meeting shop owners, board game artists and journalists, meeting board game designers and getting to know their interesting new designs and last but not least meeting fans who want to play our games. You all are the reasons why we love to make games.
