The Spiel Presents: Made for Play DVDs

5 Apr



Last year, my friends over at The Spiel podcast made a documentary about the process of making board games.  The movie is freely available to watch on Youtube and Vimeo now, but they have made DVDs available for purchase to help out the show and their plans to slowly take over the world (that’s just what I assume they’re doing with the proceeds…it’s what I’d do).

I’ll let Stephen from the Spiel describe the documentary in his own words…

” Filmed on location at Ludo Fact in Germany, Made for Play chronicles the journey a board game takes from the factory to your table. You get to see every aspect of the manufacturing process: the technology and machines, the many detailed steps, and the hundreds of people that are involved in the production of a single game. Our goal is to give you a greater appreciation of the time, effort and investment that goes into every quality board game that makes it to the marketplace and your home. The business of fun requires a lot of hard work!”

The DVD offers the movie not only in a much higher quality than the web versions, but there are also subtitles in five different languages.
