Look Back at Essen SPIEL 2019

Essen SPIEL 2019 was fantastic, and we’d like to thank to all of you who stopped by to say hello. It was incredible to meet so many of you (again) in person. You made the experience amazing for all of us!

The number of you who came to try Project L was amazing! It was great that we were also able to show you the most recent developments in Space Race and talk to you about our ideas for future projects.

There are lots of pictures from the convention below. Clicking on them will make them bigger, and the captions will appear as well.

We arrived at the exhibition center on Tuesday because we wanted to make sure the booth is set up and ready before all the rush begins. This turned out to be a great plan because even Wednesday was extremely busy.

On Wednesday, there was the traditional News Release Show where all the games released in the current year are presented to media, and BoardGameGeek interview (link here, segment about Project L starts at 23:10). However, we were also at the SPIEL Preview Night on Wednesday evening, where everyone could come play games even before the convention starts. This is the first year it was organized, and it was a blast!

So many people came to check out Project L. It was marvelous to see seasoned gamers racking their brains on all the possible combinations and, on a table next to them, a family having a great time with their kids. On Sunday morning, even Adam, creator of the original concept for Project L, was accepting challenges from the daring passers-by. Was anyone able to defeat him?

What was your favorite part of the convention? Let us know in the comments!

Finally, thank you very much for stopping by and playing Project L with us! Take a look below for more pictures.

We honestly can’t wait for Essen SPIEL 2020! Until then,

Michal & the Boardcubator team
