Hello! My gamer friends!

This year, we will bring you 11 new games! The quantity of each game is limited (shipping pallets of games from Taiwan to Germany isn't an easy task), so if you find any games that look fun to you, please come to grab a copy early. You may also PRE-ORDER our games through our new website.


Microbadge: Essen attendee TBD ESSEN 2016 PRE-ORDER IS OFFICIALLY CLOSED!

==== HOW OUR PRE-ORDER WORKS ====

Our pre-order system provides two options:

Microbadge: Essen attendee ESSEN PICK-UP
If you choose to pick up the games in Essen Spiel, you don't need to pay the money now (to save on Paypal fee).
We'll keep your games until 12 NOON on Saturday, Oct 15.
PLEASE don't be a no-show. We don't want to carry the games back home. My suitcase only opens for other Essen hotness.:-P

Microbadge: I love Taiwan SHIPPING TO YOUR DOORSTEPS FROM TAIWAN
For those who cannot attend Essen Spiel, we'd be happy to ship the games to you in late October. But you need to pay for the games now through Paypal. We will send you an e-mail before shipping out your order and ask you to pay for the shipping cost at that time. We know the two-step payment is annoying, but we are not 100% sure about the final weight of some of the games. Thanks for your understanding. ;-)

We'll update the information of our games as often as we can. Should you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us at taiwanbgdesign@gmail.com, or shoot a Geekmail to

Microbadge: Hanamikoji fan Overview
Welcome to the most well-known geisha street in the old capital, Hanamikoji. Geisha, the graceful women elegantly mastering in art, music, dance, and a variety of artistic performances after years of training, are greatly respected and adored.
In Hanamikoji, two players compete to earn the favors of the seven geisha masters by collecting the performance items with which they excel. With careful speculation and sometimes a few bold moves, you may earn the essential items by giving away the less critical ones. Can you outsmart your opponent and win the most favors of the geishas?

Overview
The Round Houses (a.k.a. Fujian Tulou) are unique rural dwellings that can be found in the mountain areas in southeastern Fujian, China, dated back to the Ming dynasty (17th century). A Round House is a large, multi-floor, enclosed, and fortified earth building housing usually a whole clan, which functions as a village and is known as “a little kingdom for the family.”
In the game of Round House, players are the head of a family who try to lead their members to glory. Players take turns to move their pawns around the circular building in one direction, performing different actions to get goods, trade goods for money, hire experts, send family members for distant business, and eventually bring the families home to worship the ancestors. By cleverly moving your pawns around the Round House, and maximizing the performance of your faithful family members, you might become the most glorious family and win the game!

Overview
Coffee Roaster is a solitaire pool-building game. You choose a variety of coffee beans you want to roast, and put a number of tokens specific to that variety into a bag. Each turn, you draw a number of bean tokens randomly from the bag to advance their roast level. When you are finished, you make a cuptesting to check the taste of your coffee and score points accordingly.

You also have to even out roast level of each bean, while not spoiling the flavor of that variety.
You also have to screen out Smoke Tokens and Burnt Bean Tokens that hinder your roasting, and Reject Bean Tokens that spoil the taste. It is important to control the contents of your bag utilizing flavor effects and Unique Effects caused by placing tokens on the Roast Board.
There are 22 varieties of beans in the game. In one game, you try to roast three of them, and your roaster title is awarded according to the total score. Enjoy the world of coffee-roasting, and aim for the ultimate title "Meister".

Overview
Immortal Raven Lord may transform all of humanity to ravens by simply touching them. Miracle Princess may break the curse of the raven. Unfortunately, she was prisoned in one of the towers in the Castle of Raven Lord. One day, the Brave with the power of bluebird, in order to rescue the prisoned princess, opens the gate of the castle. He explores the rooms in the corridor carefully and try to find the way to defeat the Raven Lord. Will he succeed? Or will the Raven Lord continue his dominion over the kingdom?
Dark Castle is a fantasy-themed two-player game, with one playing the Raven Lord and the other playing the Brave. They may move around the cloister to collect magic stones to control the five towers, or use grimoires to cast powerful magic to interfere with the opponent.
Moving your character wisely will grant you the most helpful magic stones, while casting magic at the right time will help you gain the upper hand over your rival. After four rounds, players will earn magical powers for dominating the five towers and through the rewards from the secret chambers. The player with the most magical powers wins the game.

Co-operative / Roll and Move / Rock-paper-scissors

Essen price: €69 (MSRP €85)

Overview
HoPLAY Queen Strike combines 3D holographic display with traditional boardgame to bring you a brand new and exciting interactive experience. As little heroes of the "Music Kingdom", your quest is to collect musical notes in the kingdom and complete the fabled “Rainbow Score”. Begin your adventure from one of the four starting points. Overcome treacherous traps set by the “Queen of Hearts” as she seeks discord! Roll the dice, explore different areas, and thwart the queen’s plan by defeating her guards. Get to the castle, undo the queen's magic spell, and save the kingdom!
HoPLAY Queen Strike is a co-operatie game. Players take turns to roll the movement dice and move their Hero pawn along the game map to collect the musical notes. They might encounter the Queen's guard and enter the "combat mode" displayed in the 3D holographic platform (driven by a game app on player's own tablet), in which players need to use their combat cards to defeat the guard (in a rock-paper-scissors system). Payers might also run into some event cards that bring them some surprise animated in the holographic movie. Once the players collect enough musical notes, they may challenge the Queen to win the game!

Deduction / Bluffing / Take That

Essen price: €3
PRE-ORDER of each €50 will gift you a copy of this microgame!

Overview
Big Bad Wolf is so annoying! No one wants to be his neighbor! People start to move around in the town to stay away from him. Will you be lucky enough to live happily ever after — or end up being annoyed by the Big Bad Wolf for the rest of your life?

Flitting Bad Wolf is a microgame of deduction and bluffing. Players try to get the most valuable cards while avoiding a visit from the Big Bad Wolf! On a player's turn, they may choose to (1) offer a hand card to the opponent (who may refuse though), or (2) play a card and execute the ability. Players alternate turns until no one has any cards in hand, and the round scoring takes place. The game is played for a number of rounds until one player has scored 11 or more points to become the winner.

Essen price: €30 (MSRP €35)

Overview
Sweet Nose is a game of exciting interaction. You will try to eat most types of candy through trading your candy with other players. However, the sweetness of each candy is different from each player. Therefore, to keep yourself from being the one who eats too many sweets, you need to be careful when trading and observe the reaction of other players. In addition, different shops provide different surprises; you also need to take those shops' candies into your consideration. The one who eat the most sweets loses the game, and the winner is the one who eats the fewest sweets.
