This year I began my raid at the Heidelberger booth in hall 9.
To be more specific at the 'Schnäppchen' booth where Heidelberger sells games that have slight damaged boxes quite cheap.

I've owned the Battlelore base game since it was on the market (when it was still published/Distributed by Days of Wonder) but never got an expansion that adds minis.

For my copy of Memior'44 I always wanted to have a pre-printed large scale battle map - but unfortunately was not able to aquire one before they went out of print :/

So I really had to pic up this battle map for Battlelore - it's really large and I might have to buy a new table
The map is double sided and contains two scenarios. In addition this contains the Troll mini.

Unfortunately I didn't know that you need the "Dwarven Specialist" expansion to play one of the scenarios.
Also - while the Troll mini is included the 'card' for the mini (which contains rules and stats) is printed directly on the map - so it's hard to use the mini in another scenario.
The real card for the Troll is delivered in the "Dragons" expansion which I didn't buy - too bad because it was quite cheap at the Heidelberger booth.

Bought for: 2,50€

I got this from the Heidelberger 'Schnäppchen' booth as well.

Battlelore always was more "Middle Age" than "Fantasy" for me so I passed on the 'Dragons' expansion and picked this instead.

Although it was sold on the 'Schnäppchen' table I didn't see any damage on the box

I didn't check out the complete content and game play additions yet but it contains also new minis (for the heroes of the different classes) in a "on foot" and "mounted" version.

Bought for: 5€

Another loot from the Heidelberger 'Schnäppchen' table.
I passed on this game in 2010 when I was last on the fair since I found it to be too expensive (I think about 35-40€ when it was released).

This is actually the only box from the "oh-my-god-the-game-fell-down-and-now-is-slightly-damaged" table that's really damaged
My box is slightly broken/pressed at one side - not really a problem.

I saw it at other booths for about 20€.

Bought for: 15€

In addition to this table where Heidelberger sold games that are supposed to be slightly damaged there was a much larger booth with cheap older Heidelberger games.
Prices from 5 to 15€.

I looks through the supply and found a lot of nice games or additions to games e.g. new minis for Wings Of War, new characters for the World of Warcraft: The Adventure Game and other small games.

I thought about each box and finally decided to only buy what I would really use... which was this expansion for the World of Warcraft Board Game.

After all - with over 300 games in my collection it's getting really crowded in our flat and my wife is happy for every new game that I *don't* buy

Bought for: 5€

After my raid of the Heideleberger booth I stayed a few more minutes to explain the new X-Wing game to my wife.. have a look at some Arkham Horror minis and to see which games are being demoed at the booth.

Then we left the hall to see where we want to go next. A guy with a huge blue/black box caught my attention. It was Spellbound - a game I noticed before the fair but didn't really interested me.

Damn... I saw the line of people waiting to buy the game... and I suddenly just wanted to have it
Oh.. and the minis... no... more like maxis The sculpted game pieces (mage, spell books ...) age really great.

I asked a guy called Timo (according to his VHS name badge^^) about the game... whether he liked it.. what's it about and so on.
He gave me a very basic overview but finally told me he bought the game because the liked the last games from Fragor (the publisher) and the two Scottish designers. And if he doesn't like the game he would always be able to sell it on eBay
Since it's limited to 1000 copies he expects to be able to sell it for more than the purchase price.

Some people seem to be doing this already (just look at eBay)

Bought for: 60€

...quite expensive I know...

The day before the fair I got the information that you should be able to get a printout of the German rules for Tokaido. So this game made its way up in my shopping list.

On a BGG list (don't ask me which one) I read that on of the designers (Antoine) would be at the booth to put his signature on your the game from 10 to 11:30.

Since it was already 11:15 we rushed to the booth (which was also in hall 9 - but we managed to go in the wrong direction for a few minutes somehow ).
When we reached it I saw Antoine and 2 lines of people: One to buy the game ... a longer line to get a drawing of Naiade in the box.

When I finally was able to buy the game Antoine was already gone but my lovely wife snagged a place in the waiting line for the drawing - so I didn't have to start waiting at the end of the line

We already have a drawing from Naiade inside the box lit of 'Isla Dorada' from Spiel'10 and of course didn't want to miss out on this opportunity.

So we waited about 20-30 minutes and while we waited Antoine came back.. signed my game ... Naiade did a wonderful quick drawing and we left happy heading for the next stop

Bought for: 35€

...was 30€ for preorders I think - I would have preordered if I knew about the possibility for German rules sooner... but so I missed the preorder window.

I told my wife about the 2 player variant for Agricola.
She really liked the original Agricola I brought on the table a few months ago and wanted to have the 2 player "animal only" variant.

So our next stop was the Lookout booth (just 2 booths away from the booth where we bought Tokaido).

While waiting i spied out what else Lookout sold and for which price... qickly checked prices on the web and at a dealers booth nearby (I think it was AllGames4You). But the dealers booth was very crowded and I really didn't want to go in there

Some games which was sold at the Lookout booth where slightly cheaper at the dealers booth (like 0,50€ cheaper) and some more expensive (like 1-2€ more expensive).

And since Lookout also gave away all the fair goodies for the new games we took the opportunity to buy

... the Agricola 'for 2' ...

Bought for: 18€

It was now about 12:30 and my big bag was already full with new games
... and veeeeerrrry heavy

I didn't really want to carry it around the fair for the rest of the day so we decided to leave the halls and put it in the trunk of our car.

On the way out I made another stop at the Heidelberger 'Schnäppchen' table because the guy previously told me they will refill the table continuously. I hoped for something new and cheap but didn't find anything.

What I did find at the regular Heidelberger booth however was the German version of 'Rex' at a good price...

Bought for: 30€

So after we put my new acquisitions in the car we reentered the fair at hall 5 and decided now to walk through the halls relaxed and just look what will catch our interest.

The first stop was at the AEG booth where we took part in a demo if Smash Up.

We sat down at a table and a friendly guy in a red shirt came and asked whether we'd like to get a demo. "But only in english" he said.

No problem for me... and even my wife (she doesn't use english as much as I do) was able to follow the explanation just fine.

Another fair visitor joined us and we played for about 30mins.
We bought the German edition of Smash Up later at the Pegasus booth.

I noticed that the German edition is cheaper and comes in a much smaller box. Downside: For some unknown reason German publishers have the idea in their heads that cards do have to have a white border
I liked the border-less cards of the English version better :/

Bought for: 14€

On the way to the Pegasus booth we found a small booth with a few cheaper games - but absolutely no one to guard the games or sell them

So we did what every good games does... flip though the supply and look helpless until someone comes

After a few minutes the guy who sells the games came and I bought Frag - a game that caught my eye a few years ago - but I never bought it.

For only 9€ I now took my chance.

I actually think it was some kind of 'Schnäppchen' booth from Pegasus Games... but the connection wasn't 100% clear.

Bought for: 9€
