And the keyword is: Review!

Keyword_spelcompilatieWhat a difference! Most of our games are children’s games and while adults love to buy them as a present and children love to play them, most people won’t sit down and write a review about them. For a family game people do! Really nice to see everybody enjoying the game!


A couple of quotes from the reviews:

Keyword can really be recommended for players who love word and brain games.

Many elements that make this a super fun and quick game.

I will definitely play Keyword again.

The game works excellent and looks nice and clear.

I like the challenge to find a word as quick as possible while thinking on the goal to crack the agreed upon keyword.

Nice battle, especially for crossword lovers!

A new game out – look smart as an elephant!

Benjamin_Bluemchen_Mix_MalThis autumn, Schmidt Spiele publishes our latest game. ‘Mix Mal‘ is all about collecting and exchanging cards to make a correct set of head, trunk and legs of the elephant character. The ‘Benjamin Blümchen‘ licence is quite popular in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and the simple game rules are also printed in French and Italian – in case you want to play it and help Benjamin get dressed for work in the right outfit.

New halls and new games at Spiel 2013


Autumn time = Spiel timGame components for Spielmaterial.dee! But this year in new halls, so finding our way was a game all in itself! A nice mixture of old and new, as were all our appointments. Meeting up with old friends and meeting new ones and learning even more about the wishes for the future games. And in between the meetings we have already stocked up on game components for our prototypes and just as well! Now we are done with playtesting and pitching,  we need to build all those prototypes that have been requested!

A game idea is just the start…

game_codesIsn’t it annoying when a game has got the details wrong and the players end up in dead alleys? At Sixeye, we feel that having a game concept is just the start.

Designing games involves making schemes, calculating, doing statistics on chances and equal spread of opportunities. We solve many, many puzzles while creating games. Can you crack the code on this one?

Face2face fans

WGG_Spielsitu_01We are constantly busy thinking out new game concepts. Meanwhile, many of our friends have reported on the fun they and their children had with Face2Face, our first publication with White Goblin Games. It appears this game has become a ‘new classic‘ for some. As one friend told: “It has become my standard birthday gift for my friends’ children and my children’s friends. It’s so easy to play and so versatile that I can be sure it fits their skills and interests!”
We think that’s good piece of advice. You too can buy Face2face, at

Signatures placed, deal made

Another preschool game will be published this fall. We have just put our signatures on the contract and sent it back. Now the majority of our work has been done, and the illustrator works with the license character on it. Over the last few years we have come to understand the lengthy time-scale of publishing a game, even though we are not fully comfortable with it. Luckily we have many more projects at hand… we will not sit still with fingers crossed until this fall!

Artwork for a new game

A new game of ours is about to get published. This week, we received the artwork from the illustrator. With a few final tweaks, the game is ready for production now. It’s a game for children and families who love word games. As soon as possible the word will be out… but for now, we will bite our tongues.
