Details about the upcoming Winsome Games' Essen Collection are about to be released (6 July 2012). I'll post them here as soon as I'm allowed to. Suffice to say that this year is looking good.

Dieter Danziger's 1830 Cardgame is a 3-6 player game lasting about 2 hours. This is an economic slugfest by the veteran designer of railroad games like Lokomotive Werks and Union vs. Central.

Dieter Danziger's involvement secures my interest. Only Han Heidema is likely, at this remove, to be more interesting.

Ferdinand K├Âther's Thousand Island Railways is a 3-5 player game lasting about an hour. This fun game is in the style of the German family game, very accessible to all.

Our Age of Steam: Hungary expansion is both more cutthroat and more cooperative than the standard Rust Belt map.

Han Heidema's West Riding Revisited: Free Mergers expansion opens up this tight game quite a bit.
