What is new for SPIEL 2019

The recently debuted InnoSPIEL award will continue to recognise innovative game concepts well into SPIEL Essen 2019. It met with wide approval during the previous edition.
The latest SPIEL featured some changes. The new hall 6 accommodated comics, miniature games, LARP and fantasy games. There were more structural alterations, which is why the organisers provided a SPIEL guide. It was available online and at the entrances. Inside, participants found information on the hall plans and programme highlights. SPIEL 2019 is under way and some of these changes will probably be kept.
