AFTER ESSEN EXPERIENCE WALKTHROUGH

Tuesday night, exactly one night before we would head off for Essen, and after months of investigation on my part, also Jano dealt with some games finally , as he still had one "free" game available for his 13ths birthday in August.

His two choices were either Space Empires: 4X or Gears of War.

The game he loved most in the end was something completely different

(almost) Original header:


Yes, I needed the earth to go round the sun 40 times before I finally will make it to Essen for the first time - and, to make things even better, my 12 meanwhile 13 year old son will join in.

This list should help me keep track of what to look forward to and check out in the first two days (and will be updated regularly - pretty often, that is); as I see the numbers rising, the new plan is to grab the must haves at the first half of day 1, check out the 4/5's at the latter, and have day 2 for those 3/5's - still keeping the third day for random experiences and chilling :-) (no, we wont attend Sunday - I guessed that would be suicidal)

Edit 20110524: List hit the 100-game-mark. Farewell, savings ...
Edit 20110529: 132 games; 25 likely buys/pickups; approx. 500 EUR

Edit 20110811: 245 games; 38 likely buys/pickups (5/5); approx. 800-1000 EUR
Edit 20110823: 263 games; 39 likely buys/pickups (5/5); approx. 800-1000 EUR (lmao when I saw that skype offered this as telephonenumbers)
Edit 20110905: 267 games; 40 likely buys/pickups (5/5); approx. 900-1000 EUR (seems we are slowly approaching the finish line)
Edit 20110915: 279 games; 41 likely buys/pickups (5/5); approx. 1000-1100 EUR

preordered at the shop below - thanks yet again to Stefan, whom I hope I can buy at least one beer for his great hints


current attraction level: 4/5 want to try and likely buy - but the 1000 limited are sold out unfortunately.

status: read rules and this game just sounds hilarious. Sadly its not available anymore :-(

Info so far:
Poseidon's Kingdom is Fragor Games' 2011 limited edition Essen release. It features a wave which crashes dice onto the board, the engaging game play of the highly-praised anthill system (from Antics!) and, most importantly, the fantastic creature models which made Fragor's name in 2005.

The game is strictly limited to 1,000 copies. 2-4 players, playing time 1 hour, Essen price: 45 EUR

Rules: Poseidon's Kingdom English Rules

219. Board Game: Quarriors! [Average Rating:6.92 Overall Rank:428]
Siegfried Steurer

flag msg tools
mbmbmbmbmb
A.E.: We played this Thursday evening at the "Unperfekthaus" at the Yucata.de-meeting with the owner of the site, a very nice fellow.

It was an ok game, but the downtime, and especially the luck-factor, made me decide against it.

WT continues HERE: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/67531/item/1879973#item187...


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------




current attraction level: 5/5 = will buy if affordable ( < 30 EUR - shops sell this for 40 EUR) 4/5 want to try first (A SuperRad Review: Come Out to Plaaaay!!! says: "The nature of the game in itself is one of randomness - the dice you draw are random, their resulting values from the roll are random. If you're one of those people who can't enjoy the peaks and valleys of dice-based games, then "Quarriors!" is not for you. But one would think that in advertising 130 dice on the cover of a self-proclaimed "dice-building game," "Quarriors!" is going to find its intended audience; if you end up buying the game and disliking it because of its random nature, you pretty much only have yourself to blame."

status: the more info I got, the more this got me.

+: looks like fun

current attraction level: 3/5 will check out

status: after reading the rules, this sounds like a pretty good game. There's so many rail-games out there though, it doesnt persuade me to get another one per se. Would like to try it though.

+: more economy than rails
+: heavy?

-: components?
-: Painful business... the game, that is...

A.E.: what surprise this was - and what a great game this is! Checking it out on Friday evening, we tried this (the french designer's enthusiasm was great!), picked it up right away (1st ed.), played it again the same night, and grabbed the Expansion on the next day. Today (Sunday) we played again with the expansion at home. I didnt think this was possible, but this really IS 110% rally.

from 2010



current attraction level: 4/5 want to try and likely buy

status: very interesting game, though by far not my favourite theme. The expansion (http://www.rallyman.fr/en/rallyman/dirt-2.html ) might push this over the edge; the price is a major issue though ...

+: seems great fun
+: 1 player

-: dice?
-: 45 EUR
