The Spiel is a show about board/card games and the people who love them.
We review games, discuss the history of games and we also cover game conventions.
Hundred and thousands of game players, publishers and designers gather every year at the world's largest game convention, the International Game Fair in Essen, Germany.
We plan to cover this amazing event through a series of video and audio interviews with as many game publishers and designers as we can over the four days of the event. We have been covering American game conventions (Origins, GenCon) in this fashion for over five years (to see and hear our past coverage, go to thespiel.net)
In addition, we plan to film an extended tour of Ludo Fact. Ludo Fact is one of the largest manufacturers of board and card games in the world. We will produce a documentary-style account of this tour, showing how games are made.
Funds for this project will cover the budget for this overseas on-location shoot in Northern Germany (Essen) plus the interview and tour of the factories at LudoFact in Southern Germany (Jettingen).
