Another Essen, another 5 day loss of self control. This year I didn't go in with any silly assumptions like "I'll only buy things I play first" or "If I'm not sure, I won't buy it" since those never really work out for me. Besides, I only got about 70 unique items this time (less if you don't count my games that I picked up at the press table after the show...whoops).



That's the big ole haul picture.

For those who are interested, here's the same games as they appeared before I "unstuffed" them. Packing boxes within boxes at Essen for travel is an artform, of course, and one that I have worked to master over the past several years...



The following list has all the games in it followed by an appropriately snarky comment.

And if you really care, here's a picture of the Bezier Games booth (5-100) with Patrick Korner explaining a game to some potential customers:

This has been around for a while, but it's great fun! Too bad it is in German only! Love those cartoons!

The HT followup. Will lightning strike twice? I totally doubt it. But I picked it up anyway, 'cause I'm easy.

Freidemann keeps pumping out the expansions, and I keep buying them sight unseen. It's a total scam, those boards. I would never be involved with something like that, of course.

The rules are in German, I didn't even know about this until Patrick basically taunted me into buying it. That said, it looks like an awesome dexterity game. Stupid Patrick.

Cwali's big box game of the show. I avoided the other two games in his "special deal" 'cause Summy looked silly and I was pretty irate about all the ceramic animals breaking last year. That said, the quality of the components is definitely the lowest of any box I picked up of that size. Time to start using a better manufacturer, Corne!

Yeah, this has an awesome tray, with spots for everything, even the rules. The tray rates it a 10. I'm not even going to play this, because the gameplay just can't live up to the tray. That tray is awesome.

Eric Price dropped off a copy of the Japanese version of Ultimate Werewolf. It's all Kanji'd up and super easternized. Nice.

This absolutely rocks. A great simplistic game with a tiny memory element. Fortunately, I have a tiny memory, so it's all good for me.
