We bring you exciting tabletop games from Taiwan!
TBD, aka Taiwan Boardgame Design, was founded in 2013. We started as a group of enthusiastic gamers and game designers who regularly playtested each others' prototypes every month. Until now, we have had 90+ monthly gatherings under the belt and brought significant growth in the boardgame design community in Taiwan. Every spring we will host an annual playtest convention called "Playtest Taiwan" to welcome the general public to interact with designers and try out prototypes in one day. It's a great way to get more people involved and to appreciate what boardgame design is all about. Click here to know more about the Taipei Boardgame Playtest Facebook group.
In November 2013, we organized a dozen of game designers and small studios in Taiwan and had a joint booth in Tokyo Game Market for the first time, which kicked off TBD's long-term endeavors in bringing Taiwanese designs to an international audience. So far TBD has partnered with more than 50 groups of Taiwanese designers and showcased more than 100 titles in a variety of conventions including Tokyo Game Market, Essen Spiel, GenCon, UK Games Expo, Cannes Games Festival, and Pax Unplugged. We are thrilled to see so many gamers enjoy playing our games and appreciate the cultural differences we have brought into the boardgame community.
Upon the approaching of Essen Spiel 2019, we built this new website for our international customers. We aim to make Taiwanese games more accessible to gamers around the world and help you stay acquainted with the Asian boardgames scenes. We will put up new products, write up blog articles, and upload videos for your enjoyment. So, hope you enjoy these contents and happy gaming!
