Our group was18 when the hotel and travel arrangements were made, but now we Re here, it is 16. Martin is stuck at work, and we all wish our best to Philip, and are sorry he can't join us.

Here is what we are playing and talking about...


Some games some people like and others don't. However from each years Essen, we normally end up with games in three categories.
1 - games all or most of us liked
2 - some liked, some didn't
3 - games that all or most of us disliked


Note: a lot of these comments are not mine. I actually didn't get to play that many games as I was too busy demoing

As suspected, this is a big buzz game. All the copies of this that CGE gave me as 'payment' for my help with the game are gone already and I expect the game to sell out Friday or Saturday. CGE demo area one of the busiest I've seen and people are liking it. Note - please don't think my opinion on this game is biased, it really is a great game.

Another game I've been involved in this year was also getting some buzz, with people playing it at CGE and then most it seems getting a copy. It is so nice to see the designers face as this is the first game of many he has developed that has been picked up and produced. I've got to know him this year and I'm very pleased for him. As for the game, a few of our group played my prototype copy and liked it, so a few of them have picked it up.

Update. A few of the group played this. Category 1

This game went from me thinking I wouldn't get it, to taking a read of the rules and then a bit more interested. But it went up online on Tuesday, I played 3 games and bought it yesterday. We played it last night and I really liked it. Olympus last year was ok, but nothing special. This game I like, and I think others in my group are now going to pick up a copy today

Three of us have this already, though I doubt we will play it whilst we are here due to play time, but we are really looking forward to it.

And yes....I will be painting the minis!

I became less sure about this as time went on and it was the only full game I got to play yesterday due to my demo work. None of us who played it were keen and the one person who preordered it and paid for it in advance is regretting it.

It just wasn't enough different from other games, and it just seemed that it was a bit broken. I'm also fussy about my graphic design, and it wasn't great. Some good ideas, but it just didn't sit well with any of us.

Everyone I know who has played this said it was good, so I got half a game in to try it. I liked it and would have bought the new edition if it were not for the pretty major production issues making the game unplayable (why we only played half a game). The printers messed up and printed the wrong backs onto about 10 of the cards, which means you have buildings you need on the back of other cards you need too.

Quined are aware of this, are printing replacements and will ship them out free, but I might wait until later.

Whilst we were playing Myrmes last night, another part of our group was busy shouting at each other on the other side of the room. Turns out they were playing a game!

Kevin's got a demo during the day and liked it, the others liked it so I expect a few more purchases today for our group.

A few of us picked up our preorders and are looking forward to playing it. Based on the designers previous history, we all bought this without playing it, so I expect (and hope) it to be good.

Two people got in early to spiel and bought this. Those same two people are now both trying to sell their copy. That's all I know about the game apart from it has a huge box.

I still haven't played this game but I know the Designer, and a lot of people I know have played it and like it. Along with Tzolk'in, this was the other big game from UKGE. I think this might sell out too as its pretty good. I hope it is good as I persuaded the CGE team to buy a case

Kevin bought this and 4 people played it in the pub last night.
Kevin is happy that he bought a game he wasn't disappointed with it.
Rob liked it and said it was better than infinite city.
Dave said it was very enjoyable and has sufficient depth to make it interesting for gamers.
Hazel thought it was ok.

Preordered and picked it up first thing.
Paid $60 which is €45.
Was being sold for €35.
I mentioned this to the nice lady at the booth who gave me my copy and €10, so all good

As for the game, really looking forward to playing it. A few of our group have picked it up already. If it weren't for the fact that I've been playing my own game that I'm designing, I would have played this by now.

Some of our group were not expecting much from the game, but after a demo game, the were not that impressed. The theme is a good one but implemented well. There is a sniper,but nobody to shoot. And the demo expert just plays 2 green cards instead of 1 or something like that.

Our buzz game from last nights discussions. A few of us saw this game yesterday and thought it looked interesting. The games lore duo actually played a few turns and liked it enough, they did a deal on the game I think. I suspect we may be picking up a few copies today.

Dave really liked it and thinks the others did too. A bit too expensive. Slight rules issue with the player reference card not matching the rules and simple things like the money being single sided.

Fun, light game but for 8 players. Cat 1. A bit too expensive for what's it was. Would have bought if it was 12but it was 20.

Light co-op game, but beaten a bit too easy. it was on the easy setting but everyone did feel it was too easy. Some of the play involves doing the same thing each turn, which whilst it is the best for the team can be a it boring for that player.
