Board game services from one source

Dachshund Games offers as a game studio for customers and partners services that stand for game development and board game production. We help in development, support in implementation and act as German partner for international publishers.

Editorial office

It’s a challenging task to form a finished game from an idea or a prototype. We accompany you competently in this task and support you editorially.

Translation

You want to launch an international game in the German market and localize your game in German? We can translate, prepare and, if necessary, adapt game material and game rules for you.

Graphics & Layout

Games are visual media. Whether game material, box design or rule layout – we help you with your design. We create individual logos, card designs and artwork.

Editorial Office for board games

Board games are by no means just a loose collection of colourful game material that is packed together in a box. Behind every game are ingenious ideas, concepts and mechanisms. These have to be laid out, developed and polished.

We can help you bring all the different threads together for your game: Matching the ruleset, components, graphics and illustrations. We can help you find the right theme, assess complexity or adapt accessibility to your specific target audience. We can prepare test game rounds according to specific requirements and evaluate playtest feedback for you.

For us, editing is more than communication and coordination. For us, board game editing is a comprehensive overview of every detail for the benefit of the entire game experience.

Translation for board games

The German games market is booming. In German living rooms, dice and card games are being brought to the tables like crazy. In Germany, games that are also available in German of course dominate the market.

We help you localize international game titles for the German market and offer game-specific translations. Our focus is on English-language titles, but together with international partners we are able to serve other languages as well: whether French, Spanish or Japanese – we localize your game for Germany:

  • game rules and game aids
  • game material: cards, boards, tableaus
  • games boxes
  • other promotional material

We bring our game know-how into every translation and can translate mechanics and subtleties correctly and make them understandable for German players. If necessary, we can also offer you a restructuring of the rules to optimize the set-up time and make it easier to learn the game for the German market.

Graphics & layout for board games

  • game logo development and creation,
  • typography consulting,
  • individual graphic design,

  • game rule set and layout,
  • or artwork.
