NORIS-SPIELE is a determinedly versatile and very modern firm. Its board games and party games move with the times and incorporate the latest trends – but above all, they are fun. In 2008 the firm took in Schipper Arts & Crafts, a firm with tradition that brought Paint by Numbers from the USA to Germany. The product range was further extended in 2010 with the acquisition of Zoch, offering high-value original "designer" games with cult potential.
