Description Edit | History


Splotter is a small Dutch board game publisher, founded in 1997. We create board- and cardgames, mostly for a market of gaming enthousiasts. We are famous for making deep, complicated strategy games. The kind of games that can elicit reviews like this:

I simply cannot wrap my head around how this game is supposed to work. I played with a couple guys who think it's amazing, but I can't keep track of things, and every time I thought I had a strategy it would all come toppling down at the first hint of interaction with other players.

or, alternatively, this:

If you take the best games ever, maybe you'd have #1 Puerto Rico, #2 El Grande or that stupid Catan game. Well, Roads & Boats is game #0 - the game that can never be beaten.

We're just saying, these games are not for everyone. Plus, we try to make different games each time, and we normally put a twist on things that some people love and others hate. The good thing is, it allows us to make original and unique games that lots of people love. They are very expensive though, because of the small print runs. So play the games before you buy them, if you can.

Splotter these days consist of two people, Jeroen Doumen and Joris Wiersinga. We both work in other companies during the day, and running Splotter is what we do nights and weekends. So, we may sometimes be a bit slow in responding to your questions and orders. But we do try to provide very good customer service and answer all of your questions.

There used to be two more Splotters, Herman Haverkort and Tamara Jannink. They left the company to focus on their jobs and the rest of their lives again.

We do have lots of other people collaborating and playtesting, and you are most welcome to join us at sessions, which take place in the Netherlands around Leiden, Rotterdam and Eindhoven.

Otherwise, you can meet us every year at the tradefair "SPIEL" in Essen, Germany, in October. If you're reading this and you've never been there, drop all other plans and buy a ticket this year. It's worth it.
