A list of all the games we bought and played in Essen 2013, our 11th time here.

Obligatory picture of our haul:

From gallery of Caesar!


Back at home now, all the games have a place in the closet. And we have a few big pile of older games upstairs waiting for a place in the game closet there. I have no idea how we are gonna do that

I'll keep adding comments when we play some games, if I don't forget.

Bought day four
After playing this on Friday it stayed in the back of my mind. So a half hour before the closing of the fair I finally decided to just buy it

Bought day four
We have been looking at this game a few times over the days, but never got the chance to play it. It was five minutes before the fair closed that we arrived at the booth again, because Caesar! decided he just wanted to buy it. Unfortunately, this game was sold out.
Lucky for us they still had one open copy of the game, and wanted to sell it. So we got the last copy of Founders of the empire on Spiel 2013...

A little magnetic travel chess set. Let's hope it won't break the first time we take it with us, like the one we had before.

Played day four
We played this as a five player game. We got totally crushed right away. The timer ran out 2 times before the first three players made a move. We decided to ditch the timer and just try to figure out the goal of the game.
After lots of debating we finally figured it out. Later we learned that the normal games had 4 starting places, and we had 6. (the group before us played 4, then 5 and then 6). Not a really good idea to start this game with six colours if you don't know yet how the game works.

And I really hate timers.

We played one game of this. Fun game that reminded me of Bluff a lot.
And if you ask about the rules during play, and they say you have to have at least two rats, and you then say you have two rats, nobody will believe you...

Race game in the water, where you can lose your paddles and get them back using bunnies. Not really our game.

A dexterity game where you have to bid how many times you can do a certain move. Lots of fun, and they even have QR-codes on every card, with a link to a video showing the moves.

A game with pink playing pieces, that's always good. Bid cards, roll dice to get best score, take highest cards, maybe take some bonus, repeat another 8 rounds. Fun game, but not really special.

Caesar! wanted to try this game, and now we had a chance. I was surprised, I liked the game. First we forgot some rules, and didn't use the characters correctly, but after that it really flowed nicely.
