As more info is coming in, this list is starting to take shape.

To let you better follow the updates, the list is currently ordered by date. The newest added games are always the last on the list. As we get closer to Essen, and you start using this list to make your shopping/try lists, I will change the sorting order to alphabetical.

20 minutes playtime

Well, its in interesting concept: The game does not contain written rules. Instead the material is designed in a way, that the rules can be deduced from it. So its a working game were the material -not a manual - "tells" you the rules.

Its not known what the game is actually about, probably so you really have to figure out the rules yourself.
