Internationalen Spieltage SPIEL '08
October 23-26

Hoping to gather all Essen 2008 releases. Please feel free to add! Updating whenever possible.

IMPORTANT: A lot of games will be released just before Spiel.

20-06 Start of the list. Already a lot of games are in the DB.
03-07 Holiday! A few weeks without me updating.
26-07 Slowly started updating again.
13-08 Finally updating...
24-10 Ending Updates. I did not do as well as last year, I'm afraid. Should've updated more frequently.

Updates since 20-06

Since this has been announced on BGN, I guess I'm allowed to say more:

It's a building game in which players each build parts of a small town. The buildings are 5mm thick cardboard that slides into each other to form 3D structures, and it will look absolutely gorgeous, I think!
The game also has a nice worker management system. You need different kinds of workers for the different parts of the buildings.
To my information, artwork will be done by Matthias Catrein.

I have played this game once, and enjoyed it. It's a quite light, family friendly game, but I think it has more than enough interesting decisions to make, and should also please gamers.

There was a new version of this game out on Essen, look at the picture - the game box has Essen 2008 printed on it

Didn't get to play it yet, but it should be fun for at least one play because of all the ridiculous cards
