As usual some of my SpielPortugal buddies are going to Essen next October.
I won't. During the same period i'll be attending a completely different fair, in Porto Alegre, Brazil. But my mind will be with those that walk the messe.

Also as usual i give me friends a small list of games that they will pick up for me.
This year my budget allows me to spend €150.

Let's start shopping

I always enjoyed city building games and when i saw the artwork for this game i got immediately hooked. Beeing the author Ted Alspach, i'm pretty sure that this will be a great game.

The authors of "Kaivai" and "The Scepter of Zavandor" join forces and with the help and inspiration of Uwe Rosenberg they bring to life this wonderfully ilustrated "Terra Mystica". There has been a big buzz around this game and i'm pretty sure that the game will rise to it's expectations.

The theme is unique and engaging. The artwork is also very pretty. I need to read the rules one more time to be sure if this is really a keeper. So far, it seems so... Beeing from a smaller publisher, this might be a great opportunity to pick up the game.

The game has several interesting mechanics and feels like a kind of game i might enjoy. I've seen Vasel's and Lance's video reviews and i'm pretty much convinced. But i believe that this game will have a pretty decent print run, so maybe i'll wait to pick this up with my usual online retailer.

Nice artwork, interesting idea. I'll be reading the rules soon enough. But for 17EUR i'm pretty sure i can manage to throw it in the list.

I have already played it and let me say that this is a keeper. This game does two things that i simply adore: Plays fast and has lots of meat. Incredible design. The only reason that i'm not buying it right now is that i'm already over my budget and i'm sure that Mariano will provide some copies for us to sell at LeiriaCON

Status: hot (I will buy it after the show).

After seeing Tom Vasel's video review i got very interested in it. I would like to have a survival horror game in my collection and so far Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game was the only game i could see filling that spot. Now, i'm not so sure. It seems that CoH has many things going for it and also the spectacular art of Miguel Coimbra.
