Playing in a Kniziathon is a great way to enjoy a variety of Reiner Knizia's games in one place at one time. There are lots of games to try - from classics to the most recent releases (and even some which you might never have come across before). There are plenty of willing opponents and friendly organisers to help you with the rules. It's the perfect opportunity to meet games players and enjoy exciting games - and if you are doing well, you might even win a prize!

Kniziathons have been run successfully over the last few years at many games conventions. Check below for information on upcoming Kniziathons. (Hint to organisers: email us and let us know it's happening!).

From 2010 new rules for Kniziathons apply. To encourage more sociable play, the point allocations have been increased if you play in larger groups.

There have been Kniziathons running at numerous game conventions all over the world for the last few years. Each year, one of these is selected as the official top tournament, at which a "certain game designer" is likely to appear in person.
