Nurnberg Toy Fair

We just got back from our first visit to the Nurnberg Toy Fair, which was really, really impressive. Quite different from Essen, much larger, more toys of course and essentially no players.  That last one is a bit weird at the start, but it also means you get to see everything quite well. There’s two big halls for game publishers and the focus is more on children’s games and family games and less on expert games. Which is interesting for us, as we always have a lot of child game concepts. The rest of the halls was also inspiring to see, there were even more game publishers to be found beside a lot of exciting ideas, game components and mechanics. And who wouldn’t want to see a life-size pluche dinosaur?
