Big Spiel'22 overview!

Next week the Spiel in German Essen starts, so now is the perfect moment to list what will be available at the CGE booth, 1D139, for you: Simply put, NEW STUFF!

Big Spiel'22 overview!


Along with hot new games Deal with the Devil, Starship Captains, and Galaxy Trucker, other games will be demoed in the gaming area, including Lost Ruins of Arnak, GIANT Under Falling Skies, and the Codenames mobile app. Quick-paced games like Letter Jam and Pictomania will be available over the weekend.

Our friendly demo team will teach you how to play step by step, but if you want to be prepared, below are the most recent published RULES for the newest games:

Pre-order both new and classic CGE games until Monday, October 3rd. You can reserve the game, pick it up, and pay for it at Spiel.

Please, help us boost our new titles by giving them a thumbs up on the BoardGameGeek Spiel'22 Preview list. Thank you!



For the first time ever, we will have a professional cosplay. It will be a character from your favorite CGE game, so you can easily recognize him! Don't be shy; take a moment to pose with him for a memorable pic.

Game enthusiasts can meet CGE game designers from Thursday through Saturday between 3 and 4 p.m.!

  • Matúš Kotry: Deal with the Devil and Alchemists
  • Mín & Elwen: Lost Ruins of Arnak
  • Ondra Skoupý: Letter Jam
  • Peter B. Hoffgaard: Starship Captains
  • Tomáš "Uhlík" Uhlíř: Under Falling Skies



The scavenger hunt will happen for the first time in the history of CGE's presence at Spiel. Puzzles that are challenging to solve, an exciting storyline, and cool gaming prizes! Winners will be announced daily at 6 p.m. at the CGE booth on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Please see for more information.

The #playCGE contest is here for those who will not venture far from the demo area. Take a photo of yourself while playing any of the CGE games and share it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #playCGE, then check your device daily at 5 p.m if you win ;-)

Already tomorrow, Thursday, September 29th, the BGG contest devoted to our new titles begins - take advantage of the opportunity to win the game before the Spiel event begins!


We will now invite other friend publishers to our booth to showcase their Spiel novelties. Every day at 4 p.m., live on the CGE YouTube channel. So, if you can't be at Spiel in person, join us virtually and leave a comment for the host, Eleni Papadopoulou. <3

You'll be able to join the live unboxing of Starship Captains on Wednesday and Deal with the Devil on Thursday with Eleni and the game designers! Look inside the box before anyone else. Keep an eye out!

On Saturday, the CGE designers will be playing Codenames. Last but not least, great content creator guests will have much fun while playing Pictomania!

You do not want to miss out on this. Keep an eye out for details on social media. We'll see you soon!
