Another one from the Spielworxx/Blackfire stable. You just need to have this if you like their earlier games.

Uses the GLORY TO ROME mechanics, but themed with the Import/Export business. Would this be the spiritual successor to the OOP game? Got the CAPTAIN ED which contains all necessary expansions.

We love CENTURY SPICE ROAD so this is a must-pick given Plan B is selling this edition in Essen. Complete with the Golem playmat.

Wallace's 2nd Edition, this time from Osprey Games. There's no more game board in this edition. Would be keen to know how it changes the game from 1st Ed. Signed copy by M.Wallace.

No expansion map for Power Grid this year, but FF is incorporating his FABLED mechanics into Power Grid. Well well, this would be an interesting one to play! Given how he has done a good job with POWER GRID CARD GAME, we've high hopes for this.

Not a game that's high on the buzz list but we enjoyed this game when we found it back in 2013. Since there's an expansion for it this year, why not? Glad to know that Stephan still remember me as the "gamer from Malaysia".

The interesting auction mechanic for this drew me in. Needs to be played with exactly four players. Looking forward to test how well it pushes the boundary.

Accidental buy really. Saw this on offer at the No-Shipping thread at a very affordable price. Picked up from seller on Day One, and I've to say the game is in almost NIS condition. Good value.

Always enjoyed games from Bernd's Irongames. This game is jointly-developed with Ralph Bienert. It's based on Porto Carthago but not exactly a card-version. It is a card-driven game though.

Concordia Maps. They are as good as Power Grid maps and adds much needed variant to a solid base game.

A surprise announcement by Splotter on the morning of Day One itself. One of their first games, republished with new look to celebrate their 20th anniversary. And this certainly has to be signed by Splotter's two Js!

Another accidental buy from the No-Shipping thread. "Yeah CK, how many other accidental buys are there?" Okay okay, just one more (Giganten) hehe. This is one of the Irongames that's "missing" from my collection.

This game has already been re-implemented as BLACK GOLD by FFG. But as a gamer collector, you really want to get the KOSMOS GE edition.

You can't go wrong with DLP Games' bag building series. And this sold out very fast this year. If you want a copy, check Boardgamecafe.net webstore when we open this for preorder.

A rare find. Avalon-Hill's 1989 edition with a seldom seen box cover. Can't say no, right? This edition has the same hotel names (Luxor, American, etc) but plastic black tiles.

Tash-kalar is an innovative 2p head-on game, and it's good that CGE continues to roll-out expansions to add to the game. They missed it last year but this year they are back with ETHERWEAVE.
