On the first weekend of June, the Game Designer Convention in Göttingen, Germany was held for the 32nd time. Board and card game designers from more than a dozen countries presented their prototypes at over 150 tables, ranging from newcomers to former Spiel des Jahres winners. Editors from all larger and many smaller German publishers, plus several from other countries, walked the halls in search of the next big thing.
