About us & contact
Splotter is a small Dutch board game publisher, founded in 1997. We create board- and card games, mostly for a market of gaming enthusiasts. We are famous for making deep, complicated strategy games. The kind of games that can elicit reviews like this:
or, alternatively, this:
We're just saying, these games are not for everyone. Plus, we try to make different games each time, and we normally put a twist on things that some people love and others hate. The good thing is, it allows us to make original and unique games that lots of people love. They are very expensive though, because of the small print runs. So play the games before you buy them, if you can.
Splotter these days consists of Jeroen Doumen and Joris Wiersinga. We both work in other companies during the day, and running Splotter and creating new games is our hobby. Since 2016 we have employed Juriaan to help us run things smoothly; operating the webshop, keeping in touch with customers and retailers and providing customer service. If you contact Splotter, he will help you out as quickly as possible!
There used to be two more Splotters, Herman Haverkort and Tamara Jannink. They left the company to focus on their jobs and the rest of their lives again.
We do have lots of other people collaborating and playtesting, and you are most welcome to join us at sessions, which take place in the Netherlands around Leiden and Eindhoven.
Otherwise, you can meet us every year at the trade fair "SPIEL" in Essen, Germany, in October. If you're reading this and you've never been there, drop all other plans and buy a ticket this year. It's worth it.
If you would like to reach Splotter, for instance because of a faulty component in your game or because you are a retailer who would like to stock our games, please send an email to info <at> splotter <dot> nl.
