Designer’s Den

For 2022, we are broadening our horizons at EuroQuest to offer various opportunities for game designers to present their prototypes, gain valuable feedback, and connect with potential publishers and/or game development partners.  

EuroQuest is pleased to partner with Break My Game to offer game designers a place to bring their prototypes for playtesting and feedback.  Six three-hour time slots will be available starting on Friday and continuing through Sunday, the final day of the convention.  Most of this “Designer Den” activity will take place in the Montgomery Room (directly across from the registration desk area) —  see details and links to sign up below.  

Want an Opportunity to Pitch Your Game to a Major Publishing House?

Luke Peterschmidt, Studio Head of Office Dog (an Asmodee North America game design studio)

Luke Peterschmidt, a 25-year veteran in the boardgaming industry, has recently opened a new chapter in his distinguished career by assuming the role as the head of Office Dog, a game design and development studio under the auspices of Asmodee North America, a subsidiary of one of the largest game publishers in the world. Luke plans to devote time at this year’s EuroQuest to meet one-on-one with interested designers to discuss their game prototypes and offer advice in refining their pitches, as well as looking for that “diamond in the rough” that could become the next Ark Nova, the next Obsession or the next Wingspan.

Bryan Bornmueller, who has the title of Creative Sourcing Manager for Office Dog, has posted the following invite to EuroQuest attendees on Twitter:
