Damien, we actually did have Essen OTK Nights last year... that's how we got CO2, Great Zimbabwe, Crude Oil etc played with the sessreps.


 



CK, you could extend the ESSEN games during OTK nights :P I've been trying to find a good excuse to finally play there. :)

Still working on my list, probably set up a Geek List this weekend if anyone wants to check it out. 




 


If you have the time, please do. You could compare your before and after hauls. Probably games that totally didn't catch you attention but did during the event, games that you missed because of limited quota (curse the guy in front of you), hidden gems, share pictures (if you take some), demo impression etc.


 


:)

Yeah, I remember. :) I'll make sure not to miss it this time, I hope. 


 


EDITED

What sleep? Lol. 


 


Top hit: Russian Railroads (already highly rated by game designers, reviewers)


Top 5: Caverna: The Cave Farmers (just for the Agricola fanbois), Prosperity (this is like a top secret project, still no pictures and rulebook), Glass Road (buzz from Terra Mytica will get people looking), Tash-Kalar (Vlaadaaaaaa)


Strong: Legacy, Concordia, Coal Baron, Bruxelles, Rampage!, Bremerhaven, Madeira, Amerigo


Underdogs: Machi Koro, Trains & Stations, Mascarade, Lewis & Clark, Artifact, Theseus


2013's "Trains" (sold out in 60 seconds): PatchHistory (50 copies, so gonna bum rush this one!)


 




 


 


 


Ok, I'll keep a close look on these while the event is running. The real-time geekbuzz at BGG booth normally tells first time impression on games the attendees have played during demos, so that could tell some things. The past (Essen and Gencon) have all been weird to me, but it's fun to see.
