**************** 2015 ****************
This was my thirteenth year at the fair at Essen!
Third time in a row in the new halls. The new halls are great even if they sound rather noisy even with fewer people.
This year even Thursday was rather crowded but I managed to stay inside without having to exit and take some time off.
This year there have been a miriad of two-player games. The new hall with Kickstarter games felt rather different from the rest.
I like this new hall, because it has the air of something special.
I met and greeted with Tom Vasel and Eric Summerer.
This year I did my first SAZ meeting.
I bought "Tragedy Looper: Midnight Circle", A must have for me.
I bought "Tash Kalar: Netherworlds", this mightbe the last time I buy an expansion for Tash-Kalar!
I bought "Peloponnes Card Game", will this become my portable Peloponnes game?
I bought "Through The Ages: A New Story of Civilization", I love the first edition
I bought "504" this is just a crazy concept, I had to.
I bought "Eight Epics" I am curious what this micro game is about.
I bought "Code of Nine" Tried it and had it signed by Bakafire
Other games I bought for the gaming club which finished on my After Essen radar:
Undercover Agent (Spyfall)
Still waiting for the german expansion for Mage Knight: The Boardgame.
Asmodee has raised the price for the base game considerably: 70 Euro, WOW!
Another great year at the fair.
