For my own search for games for this years Spiel I collect geeklists which can help with that search!

So feel free to add your list to this list or use it for your own search.

If you add a list do mention the user in the description please.

Edit: If you don't want to be on the list just let me know and I remove your list.

This is the 3rd time I will be visiting Essen and the 1st time I will be making a geeklist.

I mostly play games with my spouse, so games I buy must play well with only 2 players. I also play with a group of 2-5 friends about once month, so it is a big plus when a games scales well to more players.

I like both Euro-style games and games dripping with theme and a little luck involved.

Still adding to this. I expect to be spending a lot of time looking, some time browsing for bargains of older games, and relatively little time battling for the new, hot titles.

Nothing to see here, move along please.

These are the games *I* might be interested in. So if quantities are limited, you're invited not to buy until at least I've tried.

Usual rules apply - no more than 6 games to be purchased.
