Many successful games found their publisher in Haar! Here is an incomplete list of all these games, where the game inventors or the publisher informed us: Published Games
- Which games can I present?
The game inventors fair is tailored for authors of any kind of board games. These games are publishd for example by Ravensburger, Schmidt or Amigo.
- How many games can I present? Is it okay, if I just present 1 game?
Every author can present as many games as he wants. There is no limit - only the space on the table does have a natural limit.
- How does the check-in work?
When you register with your name at the check-in counter, you get a name tag with either a red or a blue dot or both of them. A blue dot represents children games, a blue dot family games. In this way, the publishers can easily recognize, whether your games are of any interest for them.

Many of them have a name tag with the logo and the name of the company or even branded shirts or bags.
- Unexpectedly, I cannot make it and would like to decline last minute. How do I do that?
Please, send us a message via the contact form on the web page so that we can give your spot to somebody else.
- Is it possible to come as a visitor?
Yes, visitors are welcome. Many authors are indeed very happy about additional conversations or the possiblitiy to test their games.
- Is it possible to bring an accompanying person?
