Bit early on, but starting my list so it will grow slowly. Feel free to add games I should have a look at!

List will only contain the titles of interest for now. As the year goes by I will have a closer look at the games and give comments and rank them.

To find new titles to my list, I check Geeklists of others also. The ones I take a look at can be found on this Geeklist: Essen 2012 collection of list's!

If you like this list, help me out with playing times, rules etc. It will be much appreciated.

Slowly start ranking the games:
1 Must Buy
2 Must Try
3 May Try
4 Don't Try (doesn't mean its a bad game, just read the reason) My budget is limited so I have to be critical soblue

Edit September 5: Prices on games seems to go skyhigh, set my limit to 40 euros, games with a higher price I will skip. Maybe someday later!

What did we buy, click here!

Publisher: Tasty Minstrel Games
Players: 2 − 6
Playing Time: 90 minutes
Category: City Building, Economic, Industry / Manufacturing
Mechanic: Worker Placement
Links: Rules Kickstarter

Release date in october, hoping for a Tasty Minstrel booth at Spiel 2012.

Edit apr-30: From the TMG newsmail I got: Considering An Essen Pickup For Ground Floor

Right now, I am looking into the possibility to adding pledge levels which include pickup at Essen for no additional cost. There are some timing issues that I need to get answers on to make a final determination about the viability of doing this, but I like the current prospects of being able to.


Please make it happen, come to Spiel!

2 After reading the rules still don't have a complete feeling of how the game will play. That means I must try this game out because I want to like it.

Publisher: WBS Games
Players: 1 − 6
Playing Time: 45 minutes
Category: Racing
Mechanic: Action Point Allowance System, Modular Board, Simulation
Links: Rules

A race game wich plays within an hour can be fun. Will WBS games have a stand in Essen this year?

2 A bit tame with 3 or 4 players. Will take a closer look if this expansion brings more excitement.

2 Another game which can change my thinking about deckbuilding, wanna try this one out.

Publisher: Artipia Games
Players: 2 − 4
Playing Time: 45 minutes
Category: Economic, Expansion for Base-game
Mechanic: Deck / Pool Building, Hand Management

Didn't kickstart the basegame just because I like to play games before I buy them. So hope to play the basegame before Spiel and if I like the basegame I will pick up this bonus card.

2 After reading the rules I think I like the game, only have one concern, is it really playable in 60 minutes?????? 5 AP each turn, if people think 30 seconds for each action a turn takes 2.5 minutes. With five players you have a downtime of 10 minutes. So as I see it it will be a good 2 or 3 player game!

Need to know more, but from the designer of K2 so I'm interested.
