Re: Essen Spiel 2012 Live Demo Schedule, Trailer, and Preview
Oh dear, getting excited now...

I'll be sure to go alert the Zoom Watch Guild (a spontaneous guild of some of the people that frequent the live chat and who are known to call for zoomed views of game pieces and top down board views).

Q: Will there be a camera available for close-up views of minis, meeples, and the great art on cards?

I was so impressed by Aldie and Lincoln and the entire effort of the team bringing us coverage last year. The triple-cast multi-camera views really enhanced the coverage and broke up any sense of monotony for those of us watching the live stream for long periods of time. Also, pulling questions from the live chat to add to the demo was an unexpected bonus feature that added to the experience.

I realize these features were all very labor intensive last year, but I just wanted to point out once again that the effort was appreciated.

Todd, Just learned about Love Letter and it looks interesting. Certainly it's a novel theme and I have to applaud that you're adding such a nice short game to the Tempest line. I'm interested in the other games, but I suspect Love Letter may be my first foray into the series so I can see how my family takes to the narrative.

As for surprises, any chance you'll be releasing at least a few names of the next Smash Up decks? Please. Leak maybe one or two more to the crowd watching the live feed before the actual interview presentation starts? You've got to give BGG and the live stream fans a little scoop, right? We already know ghost and plants from the next set of decks (and I'm preparing for my nephew who will demand he gets to play the Plants vs. Zombies deck)---but surely you can toss us a little fun I hope? Scoop = buzz. Buzz = sales. Sales = more games. (or something like that)

Many people interviewed me at Gen Con. Lot's of videos. BGG, GameChurch, The Spiel, etc. The truth is out there...

Re: Essen Spiel 2012 Live Demo Schedule, Trailer, and Preview
Very excited to see Fremde Federn at the close of the day on Wednesday.


Check out this BGG video sneak peek from Nuremberg where Friedemann Friese explains a project in which he deliberately 'steals' elements from the BGG Top Ten games to creates a Frankenstein's monster of a game---worker placement (Agricola), deck building (Dominion), if an option isn't selected put a marker on it to make it a better option (Puerto Rico), etc.

Such a fascinating concept to playfully borrow from the best and make something novel. The game's name comes from the saying, "sich mit fremden Federn schmücken" ("to adorn oneself with borrowed plumes", or simply "to falsely take all the credit").

Friedemann is literally one of the most colorful personalities in the hobby. If you want to get yourself pumped up for Essen Spiel and our hobby, watch his humorous presentation of the concept as he showcases the prototype.

Board Game: Copycat

Check out the humorous little detail in
the upper lefthand corner of this image,
Freidmann as Obama. (Yes We Play)

PS. These should look a little bit familiar
(they are the starting cards from Dominion;
7 copper and 3 victory points.)

Note also on zoomed up view:

Their interviews are always really funny and highlights (IMHO).

Many other invites have been sent to various designers and publishers. If they don't respond, then (1) we ping them with a reminder and (2) others might take the remaining spaces. More than six weeks to go, so there's still time to get past participants into the mix.

Oh, so now I'm back to working a five day week, just in time for your awesome Essen coverage... Oh well, it feels better staying up till late when you have to work the next day.

The Pay-Per-View of boardgaming, this is worth my $25 a year alone...

What's the definition of "debut" here? I'm pretty sure Gauntlet of Fools is scheduled to be released for Essen, but it has been prototype-demoed before (e.g. at Gen Con).

Typically "debut" means available for purchase in its final form since in the case of a game previewed at an earlier convention, such as Gauntlet of Fools, the components are not in their final form, the artwork might not be complete, and the rules are likely still being tweaked prior to publication.

In any case, the Spiel 2012 Preview includes games debuting at Spiel, games from large publishers released within a few months prior to Spiel (since they're being showcased at Spiel 2012), games from small publishers released since Spiel 2011 (since for many people this convention is the one place where such games can be tried or purchased), and games being demonstrated or previewed that are intended for publication at a later date. I'm trying to cover everything new and newish that Spiel attendees can expect to see, and while I know that listing everything is an impossible task, I enjoy trying to cover as much as I can!
