Next week, the International Toy fair will take place in Nuremberg (Germany).
This is a major event for all game designers, publishers and distributors. It is only for professionals, no gamers there. You cannot find any stand with people playing on the ground as in Essen. All goes in displays and closed rooms with smiling hostesses.
Business is business. The table top games area takes up only a small part of the huge Messe. Just have a look at the map:
Ludonaute has no booth there. I just occupy a table from time totime on Asmodee’s booth. Meetings, talks about the upcoming games with business partners.
To make it going well, we need to present prototypes as finished as possible. Crafting has been keeping us busy these last days: printing, sticking, cutting :-)
