|*) The German term Autoren Spiele refer to games sold on the strength of the designers whose names are featured on the boxes.|
Brett & Board is named after the two languages I translate between, and after the type of games I prefer to play: "Brett" is the German equivalent to "Board".
In addition to being a showcase for my own collection and hobby, I also wanted the site to have a proper use - which is why I spend quite a long time every week translating News from Germany into English.
| ||The idea of this site was formed in February 1998 when I noticed how many people were craving for information about all the new games from the Nürnberg Toy Fair.|
The only website with news in English was The Game Cabinet, which unfortunately had a production time as long as the printed publications, so I obtained permission to translate news from KMW's Spielplatz, now spielbox-online, as well as the printed magazine Fairplay and the mail order catalogue from Adam Spielt.
