Schmidt Spiele is launching several new board games in spring 2022. The line-up is known just in time for the toy fair in Nuremberg: the traditional Berlin publisher is particularly appealing to family gamers with its portfolio; Children can look forward to two age-appropriate implementations of well-known game brands. 

At the beginning of February the Toy Fair Will take place in 2022. Among other things, publishers will present their new products for spring there. Schmidt Spiele regularly starts a puzzle offensive, but this time the new releases also include well-known brands that have been processed in a child-friendly way: There are offshoots from Ganz Schön Clever as “Also already clever” and the Quacksalber from Quedlinburg as a children's play version “With Quacks & Co. to Quedlinburg ”.

Schmidt Games: Spring novelties 2022

With Quacks & Co. to Quedlinburg: With Quacks & Co. to Quedlinburg is a little surprise in the area of ​​children's board games. The idea is based on that of the original: In the offshoot for younger players, game chips are also handled, but instead of around a cauldron, on the way to the eponymous city.

“Start with the donkey Quacks and his friends and lure the animals forward with the right food. But not every food will bring your four-legged friends equally far,” writes Schmidt Spiele about the title. “It means finding the right combination to be as fast as possible. But sometimes a dream herb has gotten lost in your bag and your animal prefers to take a little break”. The basic concept is similar to the template, but has been modified to reflect the age. The board game With Quacks & Co. to Quedlinburg is aimed at 2 to 4 players aged six and up and costs around 30 euros. It is one of the new products for spring 2022 from Schmidt Spiele.

Also clever: The dice game “Also clever” by Wolfgang Warsch was also created on the basis of a well-known template. As in the adult version of the roll-and-write title, players must convert the dice rolls into as many points as possible. This also happens in the version for 2 to 4 children from the age of five by ticking symbols that, among other things, grant additional moves. And: All dice that the active player does not use remain for the opponents. The downtime is therefore low - for a children's or family game that's a big plus. Clever will also cost around 13,50 euros.

Wanted Hunted – The Board Game:  Schmidt Spiele also relies on a popular template for the board game for “Asked Gejagt” - but this is a TV show about the presenter Alexander Bommes and some particularly clever guessers: the hunters. The board game is supposed to capture the atmosphere of the show - the table game version is also about betting and then guessing. The title is aimed at 2 to 5 players, ages eight and up. One party takes about half an hour. Schmidt Spiele specifies the cost at 28,99 euros.

Real top: Because the Schmidt publishing house is now known for its roll-and-write games, among other things, the innovations for spring 2022 are also being added accordingly. Jürgen Wrede and Ralph Querfurt have once again created a dice game with a twist with “Echt Spitze”. After “Kannste kicken”, this time the point is to pierce a scoring sheet with a pencil in order to get to the targets on the back. Precautions have been taken to ensure that the high-gloss gaming table is not damaged in the process. A rubber pad is included with the dice game. Up to four players, ages eight and up, compete, or you can choose to play the game on your own. A game lasts about 20 minutes. The publisher calls for a price of around 13,50 euros.

Forest of Wonders: With Wald der Wunder, Schmidt Spiele is launching a puzzle game based on the fairy tale Alice in Wonderland. It is important to meet the demands of the Queen of Hearts, who would like to see her ideas of a perfect piece of forest implemented. 1 to 4 players, ages eight and up, put together their forest of wonders on their own forest boards. The choice of tiles is limited. According to the publisher, the placement game should offer “always new and exciting challenges”, the rules should be simple. A game of the 20 euro family game takes around 29 minutes.

The future of Camelot: The board game of the same name, which is based on the Arthurian legend, is about nothing less than the future of Camelot. 2 to 5 players, ages ten and up, can join in and search for the Holy Grail. The king sends out a knight and a magician. There are adventures to be had and challenges to be overcome. "Whether in the countryside or at the court of Camelot, whether in jousting or uncovering hidden mysteries, knights and mages must work closely together to ensure their success and, upon their return, potentially deliver the grail to their king," writes the publisher this novelty. A game should last about 45 minutes. The board game will cost around 35 euros.
