Third year (in a row) at Essen for me. At first I wasn't planning to go since my son was born this summer and Essen is a trip I always do with my wife. But as a friend of mine was riding and doing this alone I was wondering if I woudn't join him and then my lovely wife decided that I had to go. So this is my 2012 report.

Altough I went alone my wife gave me some instructions. Number one: buy her a perplexus. My friend bougth one last year and ever since she has just in love with it so she wanted a copy for herself.

We where rather quickly in through an open gate and went straight into the Galleria where they sold these. Instant buy, 5 minutes in for 19 euro. Got it signed by the designer, a very friendly man.

And in the next hall, as my friend was waiting to get a preorder, me and another guy (who also came along) checked out this game. As soon as the third man arrived we tried it out. Not a bad game, did have some troubles understanding all the rules because the demoër was french and insisted in doing it in english altough we said he could do it in French.

And a bit further in the hall we spotted Martian Dice, since my wife loves dice games this had been on my to get list for a long time. Bought a copy for 10 euro, we got one for our gaming club as well.

And another new game we got to try out. Now this looks very nice and I do like the dungeon crawling look a lot. Normally you play three rounds but we finished after one. Fun part was when the demoër who was talking english to us found it great that he could switch to dutch (but forgot when he was interupted). It's a nice little game but a bit to random for us, we just killed everyone and if your character are killed early on you don't get any points, off course you can get lucky in the other rounds but I think it will have to do more with luck then with knowing how to play the game.

We met up with these guys earlier this year on another fair and they wanted to show their new card game. It is a doublesided card game and you use both sides, this gives a nice effect to some games. As for the games you play them with, they are more basic games, we played a UNO and a Perudo variant. Not bad, but I do like Perudo more with dices.

Then I arrived in Hall 6, now if you don't know Essen. It's here where you find all the Larp and RPG stuff. And one of the halls I spend most of my time at, every year.

Went to a second hand seller I go to each year to find some more of the complete handbooks and I did so this year. Started out with the rangers.

Another command from my wife is to bring her a new d20 that rolls high, so I went over to the Chessex stand and bought her a cool black half see through d20 with red numbers. It looks great, don't know if it rolls high numbers only though...

Picked up two new d10's as well for me. Always handy to have a couple of extra.

I also try to find something new each year that I don't have in my collection. I was looking for Inspectres or Hollowpoint but none carried them this year, then I realized how much fun I was having with Karl's Marvel games so I decided to buy a copy of the rules, again one of the major sellers didn't carry it but luckily I found it at another booth. 17,90 altough I paid 18 because he didn't have 10 cents to give back as change.

When I was in Hall 6 and my friends heard that I might need some time they decided to leave since they had to find some other games they preordered. And while in hall 6 another friend called me to tell me he has arrived. Now this friend I have known for years isn't a geek like me, but his wife works in a college where they have an archive for boardgames (I know so cool and we went with her to Essen last year), her husband (my friend) decided to join her one day. But since she is busy we met up and I introduced him to spiel (well I just told him what I wanted to see and he followed ), we started out playing this game, in which he beated me (he actually beated me in all games we played in the afternoon)

Nice game btw, did want to try out the other new games they brought but there where people playing all off them.

Had a look at the Heiderberge dump stands in Hall 9, some nice games but nothing that really jumped out except this Uzi. Have the base game for some years now, bought the expansion Yakuza's last year for 2,5 euro and I do have the live version as well. Well let's complete the collection with this one for only 5 euro.

Also tried out this great looking game but I didn't get the full rules, we tried it but it ended rather quickly. Still need to try it again.

And while we where at the booth I was telling my friend about Tumbling Dice, another visitor heard me explain it and asked me how to play. We played a round with him. It's not my game so it went bad for me.

This one has been on my list for a long time to try out. And when we heard that they where selling it for only 3 euro it was a bargain that I coudn't leave behind. Did have a look as Smash Up and altough it looks nice I'm not really to much into card games so I left it behind.

I did not plea for one off their bags, it rather was annoying to stand behind someone who did so. Even if they look great, it's not worth arguing for.

This was on my to get list but since I was going on Thursday I didn't preorder (don't know if that would have made a difference) but they didn't got there, to bad this game was high on my list. Would be available from november.

So far I always liked the Martin Wallace games I played and both me and my wife love deduction games. So I picked up a copy of PI for 30 euro.

I got a second bag with a token and a playing piece, thought it was a promo, but it turned out that it was something that was missing from the game and they just gave it with the game in a small bag, it was important not to loose it!

And I forgot to add this to the list. As a avid Geekbuzzer I just love following the live feed from Essen (we even have a guild: Zoom Watch Guild). So I had to stop and say hi to Microbadge: Beth Heile fan, I did and had a great little chat!

Didn't really play anything like this but since it's Kael his favorite game I thought I just used it. After missing each other last year at the fair we did meet up this year and shared a pint (altough mine we an alcoholic free one, he waited for a bit longer, I didn't care) and we talked for a bit. Always nice to put a face to a user profile.

And while going away from another fair. I picked up a copy of Dungeon Crawlin Fools, still need a couple others but I wanted my wife to start at the beginning since she doesn't follow the whole web comics. Bought it for around 21 euro.

All in all, not a bad fair, didn't buy to much new boardgames but there weren't a lot of special games for me that I needed to get. But I had a great day altough when I got home after the second 3:30 drive I was exhausted, don't know if I still want to do this for only 1 day.
