Shelley and I get a couple of limited-run Essen 2015 releases to the table that I obtained post-show.

Haspelknecht by Thomas Spitzer and produced by Quined Games has players digging for coal in the Ruhr area of Germany, using limited resources to obtain points over a 3-year period.

Bomarzo by Stefano Castelli and produced by Giochix.it has players tapping the powers of mythological gods to gain prestige and influence in various areas.

Listen at www.garrettsgames.com, on Stitcher, or the link below. OR subscribe on iTunes!

Also, there's a separate thread on the guild where we've been discussing my comments/playing of Haspelknecht. Join in if you want.
