The International Game Days (SPIEL) in Essen will take place from October 6th to 9th in the exhibition halls. Fans can look forward to numerous new releases this year. The exhibition area has grown significantly compared to the previous year, as the organizing Friedhelm Merz Verlag recently announced.

It will be a premiere for SPIEL in Essen this year – for the first time, the world's largest trade fair for parlor games will be held under the Spielwarenmesse eG umbrella. Otherwise, at least nothing will change: the team at Friedhelm Merz Verlag led by Dominique Metzler takes care of everything that needs to be taken care of. The organizers have already reported 75 percent growth in terms of exhibition space. The line-up of exhibitors is also more international again: for some it is a debut. Various publishers from Vietnam, Armenia, Kuwait and Qatar are present in Essen for the first time.

What the publishers present ranges from children's games and board games for families to heavyweights for experts.

Per Glöde has one on BoardgameGeek - there's one there too Preview with all titles for SPIEL'22 – created a ranking of the top titles based on geek ratings. It looks comparatively quiet there for the past year. It shouldn't be difficult for SPIEL'22 to beat last year when it comes to the absolute milestones of the season.
