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

No new game this Essen. alea tried to find a new game high on the alea-scale (six or up!), but failed to find a fitting candidate.

For Nürnberg there will be a new game in a Medium box and a small surprise for alea's 10th Anniversary.
