Not exactly newsy news but I got another SPIEL newsletter and maybe some of you are interested in how the plans for spiel.digital are progressing… the current video is somewhat in (English)–well most of the words are anyway. But he’s showing a few interesting mockups of what they are planning. Knowing how hard it can be to get a software project (which that is) off the ground, they have very little time to accomplish this, so consider me sceptical they are going to achieve what they propose.
Note: I only scrolled through the video to have a look at the mockups because too many words to listen to that kept being repeated over and over and over.
Looks like they are making a website with events, gaming table, shopping and involving several well-known gaming entities including SUSD.
Here’s one of the mockups. There’s also one showing different boardgame themes you can browse and then each publisher will have a page with their games, a schedule of online events, links to gaming tables (online?) and (most importantly?) shopping! He said something that publishers can include links to different shopping options depending on where you are to reduce shipping cost etc.
But as noted, I’ve only listened to a few parts of the lengthy thing.
