The Spiel turns 13!

Today is The Spiel's 13th birthday!

So many amazing experiences, opportunities, and friendships have come about because of the show.

As well as a treasure trove of content for anyone wanting to explore the world of games and play.

13 years of consistent quality content without missing a deadline. Not one deadline missed in 13 years.

This is not easy to do. It is really, really hard.

And of all the things we've done with the show, that accomplishment brings me the most satisfaction.

Now we are setting off into new territory with a wealth of new Spielers:

Doug Richardson, our not-so-new co-host!

And a host of amazing contributors: Beth Heile, John Knoerzer, Miklos Fitch, Starla Fitch, Katie Aidley, Marguerite Cottrell, Ezra Denney, and Gubbins!

And in the next year, I'm working on plans to bring everything we do: from our work with the show and awards and panels and films to hosting gaming fundraisers and our donations of game bundles to kids and seniors around the country all under a single umbrella.

We want to make the world a more playful place.

And there are some big plans ahead for The Spiel, each one guided by this simple goal.

Can't wait to see what the next year holds. And the next!

Spiel on, everyone!
