Posted by Denny Koch on October 17, 2012

“Spiel 2012”, the international gaming fair, is the world’s biggest consumer fair of gaming. It takes place from Oct 18 to 21 in Essen, Germany.

This means, four days of playing and testing new (even unpublished) games, talking to designers, publishers, and gamers from all over the world. “Spiel” is simply the world’s largest meeting of the gaming scene. You will have the chance to see and play all kinds of games – strategy games and consims as well as adventure, Euro, Ameritrash, fantasy, science fiction, computer and console games.

“Spiel” (German for “game”) is the world’s largest consumer fair of gaming

The expo takes place in the Messe Essen at the Grugapark on 46,000 square metres exhibition space.

In addition, “Comic Action” is part of Spiel, a large comic fair providing an extensive overview of the international comic market. You will also have the chance to meet publishers and famous illustrators who will also sign their work, and see lots of cosplayers 😉

Spiel and Comic Action do not only show games and comics, but you can also buy games, comics, and other stuff (for example t-shirts, artworks, posters, action figures). This is your chance to play and buy a game which isn’t even officially published yet 🙂

For more information, visit the official website (English and German)

Essen (a city with over one million inhabitants) is located in Western Germany, in the heart of the Ruhr area, and has a very good infrastructure. It can be reached easily by train, plane, or car.

See you in Essen!

And watch out for our official fair report “HFC goes Spiel 2012”, soon on this website!
