WONDERBOW

We are a board game publisher from Hamburg, Germany. We truly believe that creativity, diversity and fun make the world a better place. Our games are meant to be all of the above. Making our own games is only the beginning of the Wonderbow. Our vision is an iridescent future on tables richly set with joy and happy memories. With a seat for everyone.

We design and develop our own games in both English and German. We collaborate with global publishers to translate our games into other languages and to introduce exciting games to German-speaking Europe.

Wonderbow was founded by Laia Gonzalez and Sönke Schmidt.

They have been making creative products together for years and are now focussing their energy on their long time dream: board games.
Sönke

Growing up regularly playing the new “Spiel des Jahres” as a kid in the mid 80’s Sönke finally became designer and developer for games. After working as an Art Director and Creative Director for years, he now hopes to turn his board game passion into a full time profession.

Laia

Laia is a maker and a connector. She is driven by turning visions into reality. After slaying Zombies in Co-Op, laying some chunky tiles and trying time travel for the first time she got very much into the hobby in the last few years. She is an editor and the engine of Wonderbow.

Mina

Mina is our CHO (Chief Happiness Officer). Probably the most important role in the company, as happiness is the main business focus of Wonderbow after all. She does her job with unparalleled passion and professionalism, having started at a very young age. Whatever amount of happiness you need, she will deliver in no time.

What do we do?

Game development

We assist you in maximizing the potential of your game, tailoring it precisely to your vision so that players worldwide will wholeheartedly love it.

Game design

Creating our own games is truly like bringing our dreams to life. We adore the multifaceted nature of board games, whether it's the storytelling, visuals, tactile experiences, strategic depth, whimsical elements, or the social interaction they foster 💚
