1. Board Game: Homesteaders [Average Rating:7.26 Overall Rank:640]
Board Game: Homesteaders
Priority 1
2-4 players
90 minutes
There will be a new multilingual 3rd edition (also german) of this game in Essen 2012
Stand: Quined Games [5-41]

This game reminds me of M.U.L.E., one of my favorite computer games of the 80's. I have had this boardgame on my wishlist for a long time. Now that it is released in a german new edition I am going to testplay it if that's possible. Or I directly buy it on the fair. Anyways, high check priority for me.

Update: I have actually playtested this game in Essen "Spiel12".

I like the game mechanic about the weather and how I need to plan according to it. This looks like a good strategic and tactical game.

Introduction video (in german) here: http://www.cliquenabend.de/spiele/098100-Tzolkin-The-Mayan-C...

Strategy game in which I need to plan my investments and not forget to feed my meeples.
I like the Maya/Aztec theme with all these runes on the board like in my favorite game 'Tikal'.
The game has a very interesting mechanic with gear wheels on which I place my meeple workers in order to invest.
After seeing the video I think this game is great!

4. Board Game: Noblemen [Average Rating:6.94 Overall Rank:1878]
Board Game: Noblemen
Priority 1.5
3-5 players
90 minutes
Stand: Pegasus Spiele [6-417, 12-01, 12-06]

German introduction video, short and long, here: http://www.cliquenabend.de/spiele/469100-Noblemen.html

Strategy game, complex but with optimal overview and explanation symbols on the gameboard, like what actions to do and victory points to get.
According to game page, the game won the award "2009 Hippodice game design competition – 1st place" (2009? Is this a typo on the game page?).

I like the possibility to get a title like 'Baroness' and how this is implemented with title shields before each player. The components look like they are of high quality, the graphics look great. After watching the detailed explanation video I think this is a good strategy game.

This game seems really good, never-the-less I've chosen this priority because after watching video I know it now quite well - no big need to testplay.

5. Board Game: Western Town [Average Rating:7.08 Overall Rank:3311]
Board Game: Western Town
Priority 1.5
2-4 players
90 mins
Released for Essen 2012, multilingual edition, also german.
Stand: Whyme [4-222]

Video for the prototype: http://boardgamegeek.com/video/14789/western-town/dice-tower...
German rules are downloadable on game page.

In the video and the comments of the game page it says that this is a rather complex game, comparable to 'Caylus', very little luck involved. There's also high interactivity between the players through the mechanic of playing the action cards.

According to the video and after overviewing the rules I think this is an interesting and good game, surely worth a playtest.

Update: I have actually playtested this game in Essen "Spiel12".

Board Game: Kosmonauts
Priority 2
2-4 players
60 min
Released for Essen 2012, german.
Stand: MEBO Games [4-211]

English/german introduction video here: http://www.cliquenabend.de/spiele/028100-Kosmonauts.html

From the video this seems similar to 'Snow Tails' but with less luck (no drawing of "speed"-cards) and more planning. I guess this will be a fun lightweight game.

Update: I have actually playtested this game in Essen "Spiel12".

Good ideas like building a house gives resources, upgrading it to another building I lose this resource but gain another. Lots of different races with different advantages. Lots of things to try out.

120 minutes (Between 15 and 30 minutes per person)
Publisher is "HELVETIA Games"; according to BGG page it has not published any games so far.
Stand: Helvetia Games [7-104]. Almost missed this game in the Essen12 stand list because it's named "Shafansa" there.

Description sound interesting: It's about construction, producing and speculation - this I like. However there are not many pictures on the game page so far. It says: Average interoperability, little luck, High difficulty.

Board Game: CO₂
priority 5
2-4 players
135 mins (!)
Released for Essen 2012, german.
1.) Stand: Giochix.it/Inmedia [5-53, 5-95] (german)
2.) Stand: Stronghold Games [12-86] (english)

I like the theme, "green energy". Economic game. Game board looks good and interesting. Designer is Vital Lacerda('Vinhos')
It's difficult to tell whether this is a good game because there is much emotion about it's theme in the comments. There will be people who buy this game just because of it's theme. My priority however is on good gameplay. For sure this looks like a long and maybe complex game; therefore it's not very suitable for short playtest in Essen. I'll rather see how this game ranks in the long run.
