Geek Nation Tours is now booking for their Essen Spiel Germany tour for 2015. This is one that I really wish I could go on. That show sounds like an absolute blast to go on, and from what I’ve heard from everyone I’ve talked to that’s gone on a GNT tour (for any event), it’s really the way to go. This is the first year they’re offering an Essen tour, so I suggest you get in on the fun.
From the announcement:
Geek Nation Tours will be off to a huge mecca for boardgame geeks in October 2015 – Essen Spiel Germany. Game to your heart’s content at the Internationale Spieltage Spiel.
Four days of one of the world’s biggest gaming conventions for board gaming, role playing games, card games and much much more. There will be gaming designers and publishers demonstrating their newest games, retailers selling games at discount, live action role playing, computer games and comic books. Essen Spiel forms the anchor of our 14 day tour, but if you think the tour will be just “Pass the dice” and “It’s your turn!” you have another thing coming!
Join us for the pinnacle of all gaming tour experiences as we travel to Oktoberfest itself to eat bratwurst and drink beer (and if you love beer, the tour will offer many more such experiences as we stop at no less than five Breweries and one Hofbrauhaus). What’s more, we will game all through the tour and offer German themed games each day, gaming with the local community when we can. We will even cruise down the Rhine, visit Neuschwannstein and the Koln Cathedral, see games being built at the Ludo Fact game factory, visit the teddy bears at the Steiff Museum (everybody loves teddy bears) and much much more, before we crash the gates of the Essen Internationale Spiel. We are very excited about this tour as it will take place once every two years and 2015 is our maiden voyage to this event. So join us and mark off Oktoberfest, cruising down the Rhine and Essen off your bucket list!
