It's that time again to Despair. "As soon as you see the hatch on the ground, only the true Code opens up." What is the hatch, which is the ground? A Code is far and wide not in sight. The trailer helps a little. "Now be smart and also smart, and above all: Watch!" Very funny.

It is these and many other puzzles, with Inka and Markus Brand currently have Germany as well. Your in the cosmos publishing since the fall of 2016 published the "Exit"game series has sold since then seven million Times. The unusual games for the market for the company. The "game of the year" comes in the very good years to 500,000 games. Most of them remain very far behind.

"I hated the puzzles, actually," says Inca Brand. You would have told her a few years ago, that you would bring as a mystery writer by far, you would have probably laughed heartily.

You come into the conversation. Also, he is interested in Board games. It is played with Brands is actually more of Handball as a "settlers of Catan". Brands father Heiner Federal trainer. And The Champion Of The World. And German champion and so on.

But Markus prefers Board games. The handball games, in Gummersbach, actually, the first duty of a citizen, he has given one and a half "talent-free years" in it. "I'd rather have games," says the 44-year-old, Two-Meter man. "I believe that the many other children also."
