A board game is a child of both game design and graphical design. A board game encompasses every aspect of design, so it's with great honor that SpilBar 21 again will be hosted at The Design Society in downtown Copenhagen.
The first speaker will be the American developer and lecturer Stone Librande (Riot Games), who has a huge passion for board game design. After the talk International Partnerships Lead Stephanie Pereira from Kickstarter will share her experiences and secret mojo-tips on how to tame Kickstarter in regard to games.
Lastly we´ll host the Guldbrikken Award Ceremony 2014, where we´ll hand out awards for the best board games of the year. There will also be a wide selection of new and often unpublished Danish board games to play during the evening.

Guldbrikken (“The Golden Pawn”) is an annual Danish award presented to the best boardgames in Denmark. Established in 2009 Guldbrikken is based on votes from a jury consisting of seven of the most competent boardgame experts in the kingdom. The jury evaluates all the participating boardgames in four different categories: Children, Family, Adult and Parlor-game. Furthermore the jury hands out two special awards: The Jury´s Special Prize and the The Jury´s Digital Prize. See more about Guldbrikken at www.guldbrikken.dk
