Classic Board Games Collection

4 Comments

One of the neat things to go and see here at Essen SPIEL ’18 is their collection of classic board games which have been put together into an awesome showcase here at the event.

I’m sure some of us have games like this hidden away in attics and the like and maybe now is the time to crack them open once more, find out if they still hold up mechanically…and see how much has changed between the old generation and the new.

Seb has been here over the last couple of days showing off his painting prowess. If you hadn’t guessed, he is the one behind the painting of all of the wonderful miniatures you see as part of Solomon Kane, Joan Of Arc and of course now Reichbusters.

Thundrgryph has brought their upcoming board game Tang Garden to SPIEL ’18, giving players a chance to try out and pre-order it.

Tang Garden is a beautiful game where players wander through a beautiful Asian garden and bring it to life with plantlife, ornaments and more which are then used to impress visitors who have travelled from afar.

As you can see there are plenty of people delving into this game and giving it a go here.

Pokemon Cards, I Choose You!

2 Comments

Spiel ’18 caters to all ages of gamers, so of course there is plenty of the Pokemon Trading Card Game getting played.

It’s really encouraging to see just how many people there are getting into the game, with both longtime fans and new players coming to the ever-evolving (haha) collectable card game.

Which Pokemon would you choose to let loose in Essen Spiel?

Klask Scores A Goal At Spiel '18

4 Comments

One of the most popular stands at Spiel ’18 has been Klask’s, a fast-paced dexterity game using magnets!

The game plays out a bit like table football. The aim is to use magnets under the table to guide the ball into your opponent’s goal. However, you have to be careful.

Get too keen and you could find yourself swarmed with magnetic, white obstacles.

Gaming Across Epic Tables

8 Comments

Loads of companies have brought some truly stunning tables with them to show off their games and draw you into the games’ world.

To my mind, the best has to be the Dwarf table for Para Bellum’s conquest. Seeing those doughty warriors marching out of their subterranean home makes for an incredibly cinematic diorama.

Fancy A Drink?

7 Comments

As if the gaming wasn’t enough, there’s also a couple of freckin’ bars! You can come and have a lovely drink here at Essen SPIEL ’18 if you need a break from the cardboard.

Well, in saying that you could also have a drink AND play some board games. That ALSO sounds utterly epic! We need these at more conventions I say.
