Alan How's Essen 2012 View from the Haul
Thursday is a "buy the obvious day", Friday is a pick up the buzz and Saturday is to deal with stragglers and make random purchases. Some movement of regular stalls but mostly the main ones stayed in place so it was just halls 4,5,6,7 and 9 that needed the satnav.
This year's theme might be city building, though some games have to be corralled into this theme.
The fallen city of Karez (Dec 2012 - I didn't see it)
Urbanization (didn't make it but could be played)
Clash of Culture (focuses on city development)
Keyflower (features town development)
Homesteaders new version
Carson City expansion
Old Town (still being sold, but not a new design)
