In the board games segment, there are exciting new products from Zoch and Noris-Spiele.
From 6 to 9 October 2022, the world's largest games fair SPIEL'22 took place again in Essen. Noris-Spiele and Zoch were also represented among the more than 950 exhibitors. Within the framework of the fair, the extraordinary and lovingly designed game novelties of the two brands were presented.
Game designers Jens-Peter Schliemann (left) and Guido Hoffmann (right) have been developing games for young and old for over 20 years. At the games fair in Essen, they are presenting their new children's game "Piazza Rabazza", published by Zoch Verlag, together with "Pino", the pizza chef.
The new Zoch game "Piazza Rabazza" literally caused a stir. Because the whole town shakes when pizza maker Pino kneads his dough. Then the inhabitants look forward to Luigi, who delivers the freshly steaming delicacies on his motor scooter. "Piazza Rabazza" by Zoch, the children's game with the wobbling walls, lasts an entertaining 30 minutes and was invented by Guido Hoffmann and Jens-Peter Schliemann. The spirited Italian illustrations were penned by Dennis Lohausen. Depending on age and playing experience, there are two variants in which either one or four pizzas can be delivered per turn. "Piazza Rabazza" is action-packed fun that requires skill, concentration, speed and clever planning, not only from children.
The three-dimensional family game "Kipp mir Saures" by Zoch gave a reason for joy. It has just been awarded the Austrian Games Hit. This game requires a sense of balance and gravity to make delicious sweets.
"Chance it" is a game of chance from Zoch in which the dice fall before the gambling begins. Three to six lucky people aged ten and up play for stars, money and hearts. But only those who cleverly weigh up the risks and strategically get hold of special cards will be successful.
In the children's game "Appenzell Castle", resourceful mice want to assemble a delicious collection of cheeses. But it's not so easy, because the floor of the castle moves, the pieces of cheese are well hidden under roofs and there are holes you shouldn't fall through. More than 100,000 copies of the classic game by Zoch have been sold worldwide. It won the German Games Prize as "Best Children's Game" and was on the "Game of the Year 2007" recommendation list. Now the award-winning Merk game for two to four children aged six and up is back as a relaunch.
Three to six players aged ten and up collect curious objects in the Zoch card game "All in All". The deeper you venture into space in the space adventure, the more finds can be laid out in front of your own planets. The mission can only succeed if you decide well between safety and risk.
Become a winner yourself by helping others - that is the motto of the Maori-style card game "Mana Mana" by Zoch. Depending on how cleverly the three to four players aged eight and up place the cards in front of themselves or one of the other players, they receive the valuable life force "Mana" in return.
