Internationalen Spieltage SPIEL '08
October 23-26

Hoping to gather all Essen 2008 releases. Please feel free to add! Updating whenever possible.

IMPORTANT: A lot of games will be released just before Spiel.

20-06 Start of the list. Already a lot of games are in the DB.
03-07 Holiday! A few weeks without me updating.
26-07 Slowly started updating again.
13-08 Finally updating...
24-10 Ending Updates. I did not do as well as last year, I'm afraid. Should've updated more frequently.

Updates since 20-06

First notable game from Polish publisher of "funny" games without real deal in mechanics. This notable exception was for years in development and its premiere at Essen may be a sign of change in publishing policy. For sure it's worth seeing.

Kuźnia Gier, a game by Wojciech Rzadek, Michał 'Puszon' Stachyra and Maciej 'Sqva' Zasowski.
2-5 players, 60 - 150 minutes playing time
