Interesting fact: I spend nearly the same money on games like last year but brought only half the games back home.

I never gave out so little money at Essen. 2012 was cheap.

Hello gang, I am Karsten, and I am a Boardgamegeek. Here's what I took home from Essen this year:

From gallery of A skinned math nerd


This year I took home more than four times as many games as usual, due to the Math trade and booth work.
Looking at the pile of games there, I think it was about 260 Euros for games *gulp* while most of these were preorders.
I paid less than 90 Euros for things that I didn't preorder.

This year I really restrained myself from buying mayn of the interesting games, as I was traveling by train and didn't want to carry a lot of bags etc.

Therefore, my loot is quite small this year, but not bad either.
From gallery of Astartus


I got myself:
Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game: Space Marine Pack 1
Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game: Tyranid Enemy Pack
Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game – Deathwing Space Marine Pack
Wrong Chemistry + Wrong Chemistry: Scientist Card Pack + Wrong Chemistry: Element Expansion + Wrong Chemistry: Custom Elements (Kickstarter Preorder and Essen Pickup).
Smash Up
Zombie Dice (one of the opened demo games from Pegasus Spiele)
The Dwarves (limited Collectors Edition)
Die Zwerge: Albae Expansion
Pictomania: Geek Edition
7 Wonders: Leaders – Louis
Quest: Zeit der Helden – Abenteuerband 1 + Quest: Zeit der Helden – Abenteuerband 2 + Quest: Zeit der Helden – Abenteuerband 3
plus some other small promos and of course, the obligatory SPIEL '12 die from Chessex

Not inlcuded in this picture is a copy of Kingdom Builder: Nomads that I traded with another games explainer and that I will recieve via mail.

I've got a copy of the third one if you're interested. I didn't have time to do the game in the end. So I only have the Starting Adventure, the third one and some Promo Cards.

No real need for those.

Most of this is mine, but the extra Keyflower, Eclipse, Tweet and Tricky Wildlife are for fortunate friends back home. I'll have another pic, once the rest of the games catch up with me at home.
