Spielpunkt - Games and entertainment

Our editorial team

Our independent portal has been around since 2014 for the latest news on board games and video games, with tips, tests and reviews. Every day we pay attention to a selection of hand-picked topics, sometimes as a quick snack, sometimes in the detail that the topic dictates. Our aim is always to continue to develop. Instead of a huge team, we rely on committed editors who live and breathe the topics they write about. 

Would you like to join in? Then feel free to contact us at any time. We are always looking for committed authors who would like to write about board games, video games or even films, series and books. However, we will continue to keep our team as small as possible in the future.

Spielpunkt – Games and entertainment

– Online since 2014 –

In the summer of 2014 we called the portal back then Spielpunkt – Board games and gaming started to publish the latest news about board games. Interest in the scene grew, as did the website.

After a relaunch in early 2020 and an expansion of the range of topics to include news about video games, films and series as well as tests, we are called Spielpunkt – Games and entertainment. We initiated another significant revision of the website at the turn of the year 2021. By the way, one thing hasn't changed since we started: Our independence!

Our team of writers publishes daily news, tests, reviews, interviews and interesting articles board games and video games as well as from the world of Entertainment.
