Essen

Back after Essen

Hello friends,

We’re back home again after Essen Spiel. As usual, it takes at least a week before we’re back on track.
We are very happy about everyone who came and asked about Terraforming Mars. Even if some were disappointed to learn that the release is postponed until next year, it’s very encouraging for us that so many people out there seem to know about the game… Essen was fantastic! As usual. A lot of new contacts with publishers and distributors open up the doors for collaboration on game projects in the future. Don’t be surprised when you see the big logos on our coming games :)

Many familiar faces visited our booth again this year, but also lots of new ones. Thank you all for stopping by, grabbing our Swedish candy and our games. Wilderness is sold out, and many really missed it at the fair, but our table and time were filled with our other games, especially Fleets with the new expansion.

Just as last year, we had a beta-tester event, showing another upcoming game. The beta-testing of Terraforming Mars was a huge success, both for spreading the word and for streamlining the game, so now we want to give the same opportunity to – Zombies & Survivors!

Card back

It is a cooperative card game, where  zombies invade your deck and you have to gear up to meet the threat. We really look forward to getting feedback on this, and have already enjoyed some of it. Once again, thank you all for supporting us!

Essen Spiel 2015

We are very excited about going to Essen again and meeting  the wonderful crowd of gamers. It’s like coming home to another world, where all the people are friendly and share the same interest. Utopia! Terraforming Mars is still not printed, and we, as well as many others, are still waiting eagerly for it to be released. It’s gonna be great! But while we wait, you can visit our booth and playtest the latest game prototype.

Essen Report

We are all back in Sweden after an amazing week in Germany. The Essen Spiel fair met all our expectations and has given us new motivation for continuing the development of our games, both old and new. For those of you who were unable to visit the fair, here is a short summary:

Since all four of us brothers in the company live in different cities in Sweden, meeting up for a long one-week trip to Essen is one of the absolute highlights of our year. For the third year in a row, our brother Thomas joined us, so there were five of us. On the ferry over to Germany, we got a chance to try each others’ new prototype games and discuss future development.007

On Wednesday, we finally received the printed copies of our new game Fleets – The Pleiad Conflict, this year’s novelty. It was actually finished from the factory on Monday, and was thus one of the newest games at the fair.

On Thursday, the fair opened for visitors and our booth filled up quickly to stay filled for the rest of the fair. There was always something going on, from game demonstrations to our major events, to business meetings. Speaking of events, just as in previous years, we got a winner in our contest. Here he is, the winner of the Fleets final on Saturday:

The other event was an announcement: Our next game will be Terraforming Mars, a resource management game about making Mars habitable for mankind. We will soon release more information about this grand project. An interesting part of our event was to release 10 prototypes of the game to official beta-tester groups chosen among the visitors at the event. Now the game is being play-tested in several countries all over the world to help us reach board game perfection for our planned release next year.

All in all, Essen has been a splendid fair for FryxGames, and we would like to thank all of you who visited us during the fair, giving us great encouragement and inspiration. Thanks also to our wonderful families who have been supporting us all year long.

Essen Report

Last week we attended Essen Spiel, Germany, for the third year in a row. With its approximately 150 000 visitors, it’s an overwhelming experience to be able to show off our games to the public. We want to thank everyone who came by and tested, bought, and gave feedback on our games. We sincerely hope that it has been as fun for you as it has been for us! It was good to see so many familiar faces from previous years, even some of those who bought our first handmade edition of Wilderness two years ago.

Just like last year, any player who won a session of Wilderness or Space Station in the booth, got a ticket to the finals. We hereby present the winners;
Space Station Champion Frode Braendo, who won the game, the promo pack, and the handcrafted tin crew members.

Our Wilderness Survivor, who won the game, the promo pack, the handmade, handpainted set of figures, and the prestigious handshake of the game designer :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We launched no new games this year, but rest assured, we’re not sleeping. Next year will be grand!

On our way to Essen!

We’ve started our journey to Essen. Jonathan and Thomas drove down to Malmö for 8 hours to join Enoch (with awesome wife Nina) and Daniel. We’ve had a wonderful evening playing Space Station with our new promo pack and semi-painted tin crew members, both of which will be available for the first time in Essen. Unfortunately, Jacob – the designer of Space Station (and possibly our next release) – couldn’t join us for this year’s Essen event, so we feel a bit incomplete. But we still have high hopes and a lot of confidence in this year’s Spiel convention. Even though we have no new titles this year, we have promo packs for both Wilderness and Space Station, handmade tin figures for both of those games, and best of all; we have a special price for our gamepack!

FryxGames Gamepack includes:

Wilderness with promo pack and special scenario rules, Space Station with Promo Pack and rules for 2 solitaire versions, 2 * Brawling Barons

In Essen, the game pack will cost 45€, instead of the 82€ usually charged for all these items if bought separately.
