Essen SPIEL'21


Events are very important for Asmodee and this, for sure, also includes Lookout. However, as we announced weeks ago, we will not be present at SPIEL '21.

Due to the still unclear health situation, we stand by our decision to not participate with our own booth at SPIEL in Essen this year. This applies equally to the Asmodee Group, the Studios and Asmodee Germany.

THE GOOD NEWS: You don't have to miss out on Lookout games! The 2021 novelties like Cantaloop Book 1, Llamaland, Great Plains and many classics will be waiting for you at SPIEL!

Check them out at the red Spielmobil of Spielezentrum Herne in EXHIBITION HALL #1 (attention: same place, but new booth number: F148).

All available Lookout titles - including Cantaloop Book 1 by Friedermann Findeisen, Hallertau by Uwe Rosenberg, Mandala, Isle of Skye, Bärenpark and many other Lookout titles - can be found at our Lookout partner retailers in EXHIBITION HALL #3 - e.g. Brummbär from Bochum at booth 3A100 / 3G107 or Spielzeit from Krefeld at booth 3A108.

We can't wait to get back to small and big events where we can share the joy of playing together and show our board games to the world.

Untill then – have fun, be careful and stay save!

Essen SPIEL'21 without Lookout Games

Essen SPIEL'21 without Lookout Games

Recently, we received a lot of questions if and how Lookout wants to attend this year's Essen SPIEL. Additionally, a first list of attendees has been published ... without us. So, why?

Events are important and very close to Asmodee's heart. We can’t wait for physical events large and small to resume, where we can share the joy of playing with and showing boardgames to the world. In the midst of an uncertain health situation in 2021 despite vaccine acceleration, we continue to take the health and safety of our employees, partners, and players at heart.

As a result, we have made the call to opt out from physically participating at SPIEL in Essen this year.

This applies to Asmodee Group, studios, and Asmodee Germany.

We hope to see you all in person for hours of play as soon as the situation allows!

Stakes are high in Llamaland

Llamaland cover


We introduced Great Plains already, now it’s time to present the second release for this summer:

With Llamaland, Lookout brings lots of fun to the family table again, just in time for the holidays. The players find themselves in the plateaus, where it is wild, breathtakingly beautiful and - very, very steep. As a farmer, it is not easy to grow first-class potatoes, corn or cocoa on your terraces. So you puzzle your fields higher and higher, to bring in rich harvest and get hold of precious llama cards!

The latter not only give victory points, but also allow llamas to be positioned strategically. After 45 minutes of playing time you will have an impressive growing area with lots of cuddly llamas and even more victory points in front of you.

Llamaland charmingly combines the polyomino puzzle strategy from Bärenpark and the stacking mechanism of Gingerbread House to create a completely new game with its very own character. The result is a clever placement game for 2-4 players from 10 years.

Like Great Plains, this Lookout game is available from selected shops by the end of June.

The author: The Australian Phil Walker-Harding is designing marvelous games since 2007, including Bärenpark (2017) and Gingerbread House (2018), both published by Lookout Games.
