I went to Essen fair from Thursday to Saturday with 3 more friends, so with this geeklist i will list all the games i bought (with prices and comments), the ones i played during the fair days (with my reactions to it) and other facts like sold out and non-existing games.

I didn't had the luck to meet Melissa at Essen but her OMG spirit was with me all the time during the fair, so a big tribute goes to you (i regret not having her L-deck card with me).

1. Board Game: Le Havre [Average Rating:8.00 Overall Rank:13]

BOUGHT: 33,3 eur (with the 100eur = 3 promo)

As soon as the doors opened we moved fast to Lookout Games booth, predicting major queues in a couple of minutes, and i didn't want to miss any of the Essen specials that Lookout had prepared. 10 minutes later, we had 3 copies of Le Havre in our hands, just before the queues (yes 2!) shaped into a very long lines...
Lookout was giving a bonus Le Havre card for each 10 eur spent, so i used that to pick all 12 available cards.

There's lots of resource tokens inside the box, it took forever to punch them out! I still haven't played but so far the buzz around it has been positive.

BOUGHT: 15 eur

We wanted the X-Deck, so we asked for it. The guy from Lookout explained that they were selling it as a fundraiser and limited to 50 units each day, and that the price at each day started at 15 eur, and would become 1 euro cheaper every hour. So it was a long shot, to wait for the price to go down, without reaching the 50 units limit. Predicting that it would sell like hot-cakes, i bought a deck right away. And after all, it was a fundraiser =)

We also took the opportunity to ask for this expansion of Agricola, available in German or English, in the shape of a postcard. The rules were in the back.

Also, we asked for the L-cards of the 2 guys that were in the booth, so we got them properly signed by each one. No one else from Lookout (including Melissa) was in sight so no more L-cards for us.

Right next to Lookout booth was Ystari, so i picked up my preorder for Sylla, the deluxe edition with the metal coins. The fair had just started and these guys were already suffering from the neighborhood of Lookout Games, since it's queue was already stretching along Ystari's booth. Grabbed the copy, snatched a Sylla poster and moved along.

After seeing the basic standard coins (cardboard), i was really happy to have bought the metal coins, they really make an impact. The game had also the censored and uncensored version of the Decadence card.

Taking advantage that Wolfgang Kramer was present at QWG booth, i picked up my preordered copy of Cavum and asked him to sign it. Unluckily the marker he used wasn't very good and it took forever to dry out, so i had to carry the box in hands for a while.

It's a very big box, larger than the standard, due to the huge gameboard, leaving a huge empty space inside with the components punched out.

BOUGHT: 30 eur

Well, the super-mega-hyped game was a sure buy for me, and even though i had never played it, the reported seemed to indicate a refreshing game, worthy of a games collection. I bought the english edition at Rio Grande Games never looking back.
The insert is very well thought and it seems to have in consideration future expansions (has extra slots), but the rules art was simply awful (especially the chosen colors, that make it look like an old CGA (4 colors) PC computer game.

PLAYED: 4 times

That night we played it at the hotel with 4 players, and the first game was so addicting that we played a 2nd game right after using different cards. We wanted to play more, but it was time to rest for one more day at the fair...
Next day, we played it again 2 more time, using other card setups. The game was a instant hit with us, with fast flow pace and unpredictability on who would win each game. Rio Grande has a gold mine on this one...

The gameboard is beautiful and so are the cards. I just hope this turns out a good buy, at least it seems to have a refreshing gameplay.

At Pilot's booth i asked Friedmann de Pedro about the 2 new expansions available so i could decide what to buy. The budget was tight and "Early Nights" was meant to play an alternative shorter version of the game so i only bought the major expansion: Baby Blitz.
I had a very nice conversion for a while with De Pedro, and asked for the corrected inlay for the base game (shorter height so the box closes properly). He also signed my copy of the expansion and gave me a bonus tile - the V1-Bunker.

In that same booth I also bought the following 4 games.

PLAYED: 1 decade (1/3 of the game)

We played this at Zman booth, with 5 players. It's a card collecting game, where you need to make combinations to put different kinds of nobles in the gameboard and score points for being the first, having majorities in countries and making sets of all the nobles.

The game looked very interesting at the beginning but in the end we concluded that there werent many decisions available to make and worst of all, the choices of colors and iconography were a miss, because it's very difficult to "read" the board and see what your open options are and who has majorities in what.
In the end, none of my group bought this and i think we will never will.

Played at Schmidt booth, although this game seemed to be played everywhere. We had good expections on this one, but we found it somewhat repetitive since you are doing the same kind of actions over and over without having the tension to rise up.
In one word, i would say it was *meh* so none of us bought it.

Now this one was totally a surprise for us. We first tried it at Rio Grande booth and grasped the rules by ourselves in 5 minutes. This reminded me of Ice Flow but with faster gameplay, almost no downtime and with several choices to be made. And above all, we had lots of fun playing it, especially when someone got send backword in the water currents by another player.
2 of us bought this, so we played this 3 more times during these days, the last one being at Burger King in the Koln airport!
