Ducosim organizes a game fair in Amersfoort, the Netherlands three times a year. This is for board games, miniature games, and heavy wargames.
This time I went with my son to the Summer edition with an extra festivity namely the
nomination of the Dutch Games Prize for Family and Expert to be made known to all relevant jury members.
One of the conditions for the prize is that the Dutch game rules are present in the game box. Since the Netherlands
being a relatively small country does not translate all titles, but in the meantime, enough beautiful titles are published.




The Dutch Games Prize, the quality award for Dutch-style board games. This game prize was created in 2001 by the national games association Ducosim, to offer the playing consumer an independent value judgment.

The Dutch Games Prize is divided into two categories: the Dutch Games Prize - Family and the Dutch Games Prize - experts. A family game is suitable for a large audience, including children from 8 years.
An expert game requires a little more playing experience.


For the best family play in the Netherlands nominated:


Luxor - Forgotten Treasures - Queen Games


Azul - Asmodee Netherlands / Hot games


The Mind - White Goblin Games


For the best expert game in the Netherlands nominated:


Chimera Station - The Game Brewer


Gaia Project - White Goblin Games


Paco Ŝako - Hot Games

The fair is meant for the members and also for the public, which plays a board game less often.
In the halls, the new titles are often demonstrated by publishers so you can always sit and play
is explained enthusiastically.

There are often beginning or smaller Dutch publishers at the fair that can be found with a prototype or a starting Kickstarter.
demonstrate their game.

Here is a small visual impression:

One year is always over again ...
Have all games been played?
A flashback of last year's pictures in Essen 2017.

The first day started with the trip to Essen and later in the morning, I went to the press conference and showroom of the new titles.
In the evening I could congratulate winners of the Deutscher Spielepreis

The second day, it was early on my feet but last on fair floor, because of the traffic jam. It kept me a little two hours.

The hours pass by enjoying all the new titles, all the conversations with friends, publishers, and designers.

Friday is often my the last day on Spiel, here I try to visit the missed stands and pay my eyes especially to the small publishers.
There is too much to see and in three days it's often not enough to see everything. Here is my overview of my impression of 2016.

It took some weeks but finally I got put all photo together into a list wich I started at November.

The last ten years I have always been to Spiel luckily. It started with visiting one day but now three days. Also this year I made a photo report of my impression of the fair, meeting people, having fun eating less and feel, touch, breath, watch and playing boardgames and more boardgames. Despite the strikes of buses and trains, I had no delays this year and after a drive of two hours of the fair from the Netherlands to Essen in Germany. I started this list in November but I always need more time to get all the stuff done, ...... just before the year ends. Well I hope you will enjoy this impression. And comments are always welcome.

NationsOn a Sunny weekend in June, Zomerspel (Summer game) was organized in beautiful old city center of Gent in Belgium. On Saturday we went to the fair on the Sunday we took our own city tour. I took some photo's on the fly during booth days. A small impression...
Finally I had some time to play Nations and Lewis & Clark and speak with a lot of people from the scene. Enjoy.
