The fair SPIEL is a Mekka for gaming fans from all over the world. Every visitor is part of a great community connected by the experience and joy of gaming together.

That is why the SpieleGilde in collaboration with the German Games Archive Nuremberg and Unperfekthaus are inviting all international partners to a scene meeting and get-together for networking and gaming the day before the fair on Oct 7, 2015.

Publishers and game authors as well as professional audience, interested gamers, junior authors and gaming clubs will come together at the warm-up event. You’ll find many games from publishers and of course lots of prototypes for testing too. Additional the Unperfekthaus is open for gaming during the whole fair time. Just so you know – you can’t buy anything in the Unperfekthaus of course.

Attention: Limited space for 400 pre-registrations only. Make sure you can attend by registering now!

I'm happy to hear the WarmUp event will make a return in 2015. I'm not yet sure what to think about the extension to the other days.

For me WarmUp day was always very convenient since it gave me something to do on the night before the fair. But I don't think I'd be interested to do this all week, especially if I've got to pay the entrance fee for the same buffet over and over again.

I might be in error with this though. And I can certainly see an appeal in this for folks without a gaming friendly hotel.

@David. The Unperfekthaus is full of gamers through the whole fair time anyways. Giving additional benefits for both them as well for small publishers and game designers is a meaning for strengthening the business and raising more public awareness for the fair and hobby. We are happy to welcome everybody and of course it's a fair choice to come along at the WarmUp Day "only". There is a lot gaming around in the whole city. We offer just new opportunities where to go.

Indeed, and it is a great place to play - both big rooms, and small rooms. There is an entrance fee, but you have unlimited soft drinks and (also espresso) coffee. There's beer on tap and a really nice vibe too. Our team actually stayed there - and we booked again.

WarmUp day is one of my favourite things with my Essen visit. Extending it will be great for people wanting to have a place to play their newly bought games. See you guys there!

Hi all,

due to a severe ilness of my father and spending weeks in hospital, lots of stuff is delayed for quite some time on my end. I would like to apologize for that.

There is a description an registration on the locations website already. http://www.unperfekthaus.de/evregist/WarmUp-Day-Game-Connect..., but it's in German only. I will do my very best to put the new website for the WarmUp Day 2015 online this week.

Meanwhile I can assure additional to the regular WarmUp Day we also offer the gaming evening and independent sales from Thursday to Sundays. All is booked and team resources are available.

cheers Roland

Roland, one question I have which was unclear to me last year. On the Wednesday warm up day, you had to pay an on-the-door entrance fee. But what about the other days?

How will that work this year? Will there be an entrance fee every day? If so, will it be possible to buy a 4-day pass?

Also, could you please confirm the opening/closing times.

Thanks

Hi Robin,

the Unperfekthaus charges an entrance fee in general, not on the WarmUp Day only.

The official opening times will be:
Wednesday 07 am - 11 pm (guess can be extended to midnight)
Thursday 07 am - 11 pm
Friday/Saturday 07 am - midnight
"Shopping" will be possible from 7pm - 9pm.

The costs are:

Ticket - WarmUp-Day 2015 - 29€
One-Day-Ticket - Game Connector 2015 - 25€
Season-Ticket (08.-10.10.) - Game Connector 2015 Preis 69€
Kombi-Ticket (07.-10.10.) - WarmUp Day & Game Connector 2015 89€

Of course this includes all the food and non-alcoholic drinks again.

What is Game Connector?
Is it just the name for the Thursday-Saturday event?

Sounds good. I just watched the video trailer for the Unperfekthaus and... well... it's perfect. I might not make it on Wednesday and I have no idea where we will show up the other days. But it might as well be in your venue.

Thanks. Three questions:

1. is it possible to show up spontaneously and purchase a ticket at the door?

2. What is the "free association membership", the link of the button refers to the page for publishers, without further detail. Or maybe I am blind ;-)

3. What's the difference between Warm-Up Day and Game Connector. Does one start earlier? Do both include food/beverages?

Thanks for the help.

Hi Daniel,

1. Yes it is possible to show up spontaneously, but due to security reasons the Unperfekthaus have a limit of about 400 visitors. If registrations or daily visitors exceed this number you might get rejected at the entrance.

2. The free membership is for professionals or startups only. Membership services are listed on http://www.spielegilde.org/warmupday/membership-registration... - is there another link you used which might be broken?

3. WarmUp Day is a get-together before the fair starts happening the whole day. We invited all publishers to join in and preview and demo their games which will be available for sale at the fair next day -not at the WarmUp Day.
Game Connector is an after-show event to play your latest loot and relax. We invite game designers, small publishers or newcomers to present their games and there is a central sales room where you can acquire a few of those gems.

Of course free food and non-alcololic drinks are included at both events. With your tickets you can leave the venue and come back anytime. This is true also in the Game Connector time. You can drop in anytime you like (for example simply to have some food or play) but presentations of designers and independents as well as sales will start in the evening only.
