25 years games by Michael Schacht

han1 han3

Since exactly 25 Years i create games. A great time with lots of fun and many won friendships.

It all started with a self programmed freeware computer game, followed a few yeas later by the first boardgame and the nowadays fulltime work as game designer. This year i will spend a lot of time to celebrate!

The first will be the anniversary game HAN to be released at Nuernberg Toy Fair. A big thank you to Abacusspiele, that realised the game. And of course a big thank you to all  that have accompanied and supported me over the years, especially my wife Marianne.

More things to come this year. I will keep you informed …
