SPIEL 2020: GAME BREWER
By Raymond "DuMeeple" Dumee on November 3, 2020
We started our Spiel a bit late, to be honest. Where we normally would wake up and leave early towards the Messe Essen to be the first in the halls and most probably even before the doors open. This year we took it easy and finally wandering across the website of Spiel.Digital we saw that Game Brewer were explaining their Essen release, so why not drop by and say hi to one of our favorites.
The Essen release I am talking about is a game called Paris. It was like watching along over someone's shoulder at a demo table, because the explanation had already started. Paris is a good old fashion Worker Placement by the designers Michael Kiesling and Wolfgang Kramer. Not really comfortable with the new environment, I couldn't find any players to try and play Paris with after the explanation. So we had to find it out for ourselves.
Game Brewer had quite some events planned around their new and older games including Belgium Beer recommendations. Other than Arkwright: The Card Game and the new expansion for Gùgong: Pànjun, Game Brewer also had news about an upcoming Kickstarter, which will be called Rulebender. Unfortunately, there isn't much information about this game yet; more info will be published on their Social Media channels during the coming weeks until the launch on the 16th of November.
New on Spiel was Game Brewer's family orientated little sister publishing company, Amuza. Bringing three brand new family games called Pizza, Circus and Bugs. Due to the absence of the Belgium Beer bar, like they were serving last year, there was no need for us to stay longer, so we headed off to the next bar... ehm... booth.
