Description Edit | History

In case you wonder about the J.F.S.M. logo and how it is related to current Schmidt Spiele:

In 1905 Schmidt Spiele has been founded by Josef Friedrich Schmidt in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. One of the first if not the first game published is Mensch ärgere Dich nicht. Mensch ärgere Dich nicht is a variant of Pachisi (similar to Parcheesi) with simplified rule set still popular nowadays in Europe.

The logo of the publisher used to be the initials of the founder plus the letter M representing the location of the company, Munich: J.F.S.M.

His son Franz Schmidt later on ran a publishing company in Nuremberg, Franconia/Bavaria, Germany, under the logo F.S.N. (Franz Schmidt Nuremberg). The company moved to Munich using F.S.M. (Franz Schmidt Munich) first then using the graphical logo with the double towers of the Marienkirche (also named Frauenkirche), the cathedral of Munich.

After Josef Friedrich Schmidt died the company in Munich continued using J.S.F.M. managed by his wife and daughter.

In 1970 both companies joined and the modern well known Schmidt Spiele moved to Eching, Bavaria, Germany. Since 1997 the Schmidt Spiele went bankrupt and company name and logo were bought by investor and publisher Blatz, thus consolidating Blatz and Schmidt (and probably others). Schmidt and it's logo is still used and yet main settlement is Berlin, Germany.
