Better safe than sorry…

Our Booth


Our demo team has been training hard for months to provide you with the best gaming experience!
We selected only the best, we mercilessly put to the test their mind and body, we woke them up at night with quizzes about the most subtle rules…
And still, they’ll greet you with a genuine smile! : )

That’s how awesome they are…


We invited several artists and designers to Essen, so you can meet the real boardgaming heroes by yourself. Check out the days and times below or on the page of each game, and just come to chat with them and get your games signed. You can also buy our 2017 artbook (5€) from our booth store, and go back home with a signed print of your favorite boardgame art!


Get all our new games and classic titles from our booth store, including 3 new releases already in German. Buy a game and try your luck with the IELLO Machine to win awesome prizes! Some promo items will also be available when buying new releases or playing games at our booth. : )
