AFTER ESSEN EXPERIENCE WALKTHROUGH

Tuesday night, exactly one night before we would head off for Essen, and after months of investigation on my part, also Jano dealt with some games finally , as he still had one "free" game available for his 13ths birthday in August.

His two choices were either Space Empires: 4X or Gears of War.

The game he loved most in the end was something completely different


Walkthrough (WT) continues HERE: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/67531/item/1828903#item182...

(almost) Original header:


Yes, I needed the earth to go round the sun 40 times before I finally will make it to Essen for the first time - and, to make things even better, my 12 meanwhile 13 year old son will join in.

This list should help me keep track of what to look forward to and check out in the first two days (and will be updated regularly - pretty often, that is); as I see the numbers rising, the new plan is to grab the must haves at the first half of day 1, check out the 4/5's at the latter, and have day 2 for those 3/5's - still keeping the third day for random experiences and chilling :-) (no, we wont attend Sunday - I guessed that would be suicidal)

Edit 20110524: List hit the 100-game-mark. Farewell, savings ...
Edit 20110529: 132 games; 25 likely buys/pickups; approx. 500 EUR
Edit 20110715: 174 games; 30 likely buys/pickups (5/5); approx. 600-800 EUR; changed scale from 1/5 to 5/5 = must have; added summary with links to listitems

Edit 20110811: 245 games; 38 likely buys/pickups (5/5); approx. 800-1000 EUR
Edit 20110823: 263 games; 39 likely buys/pickups (5/5); approx. 800-1000 EUR (lmao when I saw that skype offered this as telephonenumbers)
Edit 20110905: 267 games; 40 likely buys/pickups (5/5); approx. 900-1000 EUR (seems we are slowly approaching the finish line)
Edit 20110915: 279 games; 41 likely buys/pickups (5/5); approx. 1000-1100 EUR
Edit 20110928: 291 games; 46 likely buys/pickups (5/5); approx. 1000-1200 EUR

A.E.: Jano felt ashamed (he is the serious one of the two of us :-)), but I shouted and got my copy for 23 EUR on day 1. Friday we finally got a chance to play this, and I even managed to win our first game against the explainer at the booth ;-)
