Noorderspel Games Fair
On Saturday September 27th Wirwar Spellen en Puzzels is holding the second Noorderspel Games Fair in the Der Aa-church.
New and well-known games publishers will be demonstrating their games, such as Jumbo, Henmar Games, 999 Games, White Goblin Games, Asmodee, Mittwoch Games and the Groninger Students Bridge society, to name but a few.
One of the board games that will be demonstrated is Ticket to Ride Nederland. This is an expansion of the popular Ticket to Ride, one of Wirwar’s best-selling large board games. In Ticket to Ride Nederland secret routes take you from place to place. Players must try to complete their own routes while blocking those of others. Easy to learn, but tactically demanding.
Besides the many board game demonstrations, the first Groninger championship Kruiswoord (Crossword) is being held. Kruiswoord is a letter and word game by White Goblin, in which in each round the dice determine two of the letters. Players choose one letter and so formwords horizontally and vertically. The longer the word, the more points you score. Sounds easy, but you can’t use every letter. In the end the player whose words score the most points wins.
There is also a design competition in which enthusiastic game designers can present their game and win the best game of Groningen.
Admission: € 2,50 for adults and free for children under 12. The entrance ticket is also a lottery ticket for a chance to win one of the fantastic games that will be demonstrated.
