Do you have a game that you would like to pitch us?

If you have a prototype that you want to present to us, you can do so in person at this events in Germany: SPIEL in Essen, Spielwarenmesse Nüremberg and Game Designers Meeting in Göttingen. Please make an appointment in advance: submission@heidelbaer.de. You can also send us your game idea to the same email address: submission@heidelbaer.de.

Here are some pointers to make it easier for everyone…

  • Designers who are willing to work with us on developing their original ideas into a finished game.
  • Games that we can present to our worldwide partners; currently not in print anywhere else.
  • Games that delight a wide audience, from families and adults to casual players and gamers.
  • Unusual Dexterity games
  • Captivating Card Games
  • Smart Party Games
  • Games that offer a unique experience.
  • Games you can enjoy playing again and again over time.

What We Are Not Looking For

  • Children’s Games
  • Trivia Games
  • Strategy Games
  • Games utilizing a particular License (like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, etc.)
  • Trading Card Games or LCGs
