Who’s ready for Essen Spiel 2018?! The BackerKit team is excited to be going to Germany again this year to meet with so many of our great partners and be immersed in the largest tabletop gaming convention in the world.  

This year we’ll be set up in Hall 1, Booth #1D129 next to our friends LudiCreations. Personally, I’m looking forward to this because Alexandria is easily one of my favorite games. Can’t wait to see it in person and see what they have in store for us next.

It’s also our privilege this year to be hosting 10+ amazing tabletop game designers and publishers to demo their games at our booth. Check out the full lineup:
