Tolerance is vital also at SPIEL Essen

The world of boardgames is colorful and not brown. At the board, we don't care about skin color, gender, identity or orientation. Playing brings everyone together, it's for everyone. This is also what the "Spielend für Toleranz" initiative stands for, which we wholeheartedly support at SPIEL.

Especially today, it is important to hold up the flag and stand up for respectful, polite and equal treatment - not just at the gaming table. That's why we at SPIEL Essen take a stand against racism, xenophobia and hatred and join all those who feel the same way. Because play builds bridges where words might fail. Play connects across all levels and differences and creates shared worlds full of emotions.

With the logo of the initiative, which was founded in 2018 by Spiel des Jahres members Udo Bartsch, Martin Klein and Harald Schrapers, we are joining a large number of games media professionals and other supporters who, like us, have long stood for fair and equal cooperation. We are delighted to be able to support our rules at SPIEL with the use of the logo.
