Admittedly, that is not enough to sway my liking a company or not. And certainly not enough for me to like or dislike their games more or less.

Also, we’re talking about Eggertspiele here… they have some amazing games.

And they are one really friendly and lovely company and I can’t mean this enough. Seriously. Next time you go to Spiel give them a go. Tell them we sent you and they will treat you very well, play games with you and make you feel welcome.

And if you don’t believe me, watch this interview!

Dark Tales, the fairy tale inspired games by dV Giochi By Paco Garcia Jaen

Dark Tales is an Italian game based on fairy tales created by Pierluca Zizzi and published by Italian company dV Giochi.

This is a very simple game that surprised me at the show firstly because of the incredible visuals and secondly because I could see a lot of people playing the game and doing so without any help, which for a convention as busy as Spiel, that is quite a good endorsement.

I spoke to to Barbara Rol, Marketing Manager for the company about the game and the company.

Hope you enjoy the show!

Video Interview Aporta Games and Doodle City at Spiel 2014 Aporta Games released Doodle City at Spiel and it went down with the crowds like a dream. Hardly  a surprise since the game is everything you could want from a new game.

The very simple gameplay and deceptively simple rules  hide a really good fun and strategic game in which players draw roads to build a city on a sheet of paper. With some randomisation courtesy of some dice, the game turns into a more strategic and unpredictable experience without stopping the game from being a family friendly one.

I got together with designers to find out more about the ins and outs of the game, as well as its future, in which there’s an app coming!

Hope you enjoy the interview!

no-thb[1]After an interesting year, Cranio Creations was once again at Spiel with a new offering of games that looked really good.

Hardly surprising. They always deliver the goods!

I got together at the show with Giuliano Acquari to talk about Dungeon Bazar, Soquadro and Valentina, which will make the delights of anyone into comic books.

Hope you enjoy the interview!

Ludonaute Colt Express did the delights of people at Spiel 2014

Ludonaute is a darling company of mine. I really dig their games and I dig their people and so far they have never disappointed me.

I keep saying (and I will keep saying) that French companies are the ones producing some of the best looking and best playing games out there.

This year at Spiel they got Colt Express, a super fun game in which the players take on the role of Wild West robbers trying to get the loot off a train.

It made the delights of everyone at Spiel and, with the 3D cardboard train, it was also one of the cutest.

Here is my interview with Annce-Cecille LeFebre and the designer of the game Christophe Raimbault.

pic1074447_t[1] I have a soft spot for Mindwarrior Games. Not just they are utterly charming people, they make tremendous games.

Part of the Tactic Group, they are a relatively new addition to the company and they’re venturing further into the world of gaming. Last year they had a great selection of games and this year they brought them back with one new adittion: Realm of Wonder.

Looking superb, it made a lot of people very happy at the booth in Spiel.

I spoke to Johanna Pelkonen about the company and their games.

Hope you enjoy it!

For disclosure, the insanely gorgeous Swiss chocolate she gave me hasn’t biased my opinion of the company or made me like them any more than I already did.

Nop!

Not one bit!

Also the interview was recorded before the interview. So there.
