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

Insight Games
2,3 or 4 players
Multiple type of games from 20 minutes to 4 hours.

The game has been released this year (in May), so it's not technically an "Essen release".
But we (Insight Games) were not present last year at Spiel'07, thus we couldn't present the prototype.
And it's still not published in Germany so many people actually never heard of the game.
