It’s time for Spiel in Essen: the games’ Fair for children and not

From October 20th to 23rd, in Essen, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, in the spaces of the Fair, will be held one of the most important European events for the world of board games: Spiel. No electronics and no special effects: Spiel is only tables and playing cards, old-fashioned strategies applied to new concepts, rounds where to build strength, power and success. In short, things for children aged 15 to 99 years.

However, Spiel is also a gathering occasion for editors, producers, designers and industry professionals who meet to understand the trends, the expectations of the general public and to explore possible areas of innovation. During the event, several games for adults and children will be presented and entertainment events, competitions and challenges of old and new games will be organized.

Spiel is a show for everyone, where anyone can find a place to have fun and where to try more or less demanding games. The fair is now at its 24th edition, so it is truly one of the most important occasions for an industry that knows no crisis. Except that arising from the expansion of video games and electronic games.

Experts say that among the most interesting proposals of the 2011 Spiel edition, there are a couple of new games. The first is Kingdom Builders, designed by Donald Vaccarino, a recognized expert in the field, which has already presented a couple of years ago a successful game, Dominion. The second is Tournay, created by three less known personalities, Dujardin, George and Orbain, who last year literally broke through always at Spiel with Troyes.
