BoardGameGeek is streaming LIVE from Essen, with a very full program of boardgame demos. I will update this list as a live record of what games have been demoed, and will provide links to the (interim) archives. Note that the HD versions of the videos will be posted later and will be linked to each game.

Here is the link to the update schedule: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/849580/essen-spiel-2012-...

If you want to find out what time a particular demo will occur in your timezone, try this timezone conversion tool: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html - either search for Essen (it's there but only if you search) or select Germany - Hesse - Frankfurt.

If you want to join the live chat (and I really encourage you to!), consider registering at ustream.tv - that gives you a username. Registration is free but I personally choose to pay the $3.99 premium to go ad-free.

The ZoomWatch Guild is for those of us who are committed to watching the livestream. A lot. Please join us: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/1162

Second publisher to demo. (Beth hosting)

Wilderness was at Essen last year - an expensive, hand-made edition of only 12-15 copies. Based on feedback, they have produced a printed version for this year.

Sadly, Jacob was sacrificed to an ANIMAL ATTACK.

John hosts; Ben Lee & Hin An demo.

This is a race game. Looks very clear.

Chatters would like to see it rethemed as a sailing game.

Quotage: You should play this game as a real life game, this would include leapfrogs :-)

It looked pretty fun.

I'm pre-loading the first few scheduled games for Thursday, because I won't be around before about 11ish my time. Please, chatters, post links to the archived videos and any highlights from the chat/presentation here.

Keith Blume demoes this, Beth hosts.

This game recently won an award from Games magazine: Games Magazine Strategy Game of the Year.

Apparently the game name is pronounced ZONG-shy by those in the know (we had all been calling it zong shee).

There is a pretty amazing moulded plastic insert inside the box. The pieces look pretty amazing too - dual injection, combining two colours, giving them more depth of colour. The idea was to simulate the variation in colour that you would see in a jade piece.

The box itself is 3mm thick - archival quality. It also contains an adorable jade buddha that scurrilous rumours suggest may have been modelled on Keith himself.
