This year I had to pick carefully weighting quality/price every time.... the crisis is all over guys...
So I got away with about 10 games..... Satisfied ? I guess so.

The demo was great and some mechanics feel very new.

Got it right away, 35€ at CGE (english/german edition)

Got it before Essen but it's an Essen acquisition as budgeted with all the others (but I needed the italian version!).
Can't wait to play it!

42€ at uplay.it (+shipping).

No I didn't get this one! I waited too much and on sunday it was sold out everywhere

Other games I checked out but I didn't buy

P.I. The demo didn't impress me
Clash of Cultures Too expansive
Fallen City of Karez Sold out
OddVille Don't know.... just didn't buy it
Goblins, Inc. demo so so....
Saint Malo Couldn't fine an english version (is there one?)
Myrmes The theme was not very attractive, so I couldn't make up my mind... and I want out of budget
Uchronia I have to wait for the italian version of this
Bora Bora Not out yet
Shafausa Too expansive, but the game seems very good

I was at the Placentia Games booth most of the time demoing and selling A&N. It was a wonderful experience and the game is great too!
