For the first time we will also be showcasing board games, along with the digital games, at the Nordic Game Indie Night. Submissions were open for unpublished board games from the Nordic region, and it has been very excited to see all the different designs that were submitted. In the end we received a diverse group of 20 very different titles. There were card games, euro-style games, games about love, games about war, fantasy games, quiz games and cross-platform analogue-digital games. Something for every taste.
Playing board games is a very physical, tactile experience and it was a pleasure to open all the packages and play around with so many different components. It was taxing as well to read so many pages of rules (always being the downside of game systems you have to assimilate in your head!).
