Space Butler's seventh trip to Essen

It's been seven years since I discovered my love for boardgaming and started to make my annual pilgrimage to Essen, but this is the first time I actually put my thoughts of the fair down in written form (mainly because some good friends asked me to).Recommend
What you will find here are some personal thoughts about new games presented at Essen 09, and a listing of the purchases I made. All in all I think 2009 was a good, but not spectacular year. I've seen some very solid designs and interesting themes, but no game in particular that was so outstanding I bought it without a second thought. I mainly focus on small publishers, and you won't find any news on the following games here:
-Vasco da Gama
The reason for this is quite simple: All of them will be available at my local gamestore next week, where I can test them in depth and buy a copy of the ones I like, so I had no reason to check them out at Essen (and in case of some games fight for a table place). I also read the rules of all said titles beforehand and none of them impressed me as much as I hoped, but time will tell.
