Hi everyone,

once again the SPIEL starts and I hadn't enough time to read myself into all the new games out there. However, I don't want to come completely unprepared so I decided to ask those of you with a better overview of what's coming up for some advice.

I'm searching for not too heavy games that allow 6 or more players and if possible has low downtimes. This could be done by simultaneous play or any new idea. Up till now, cooperative games didn't catch my group so I'd rather look for some competetive games but that is not a major argument.

Games that fit my ideas well in the past are:

- 7 Wonders
- Mysterium
- Jamaica
- Eclipse


Even though those games are light to medium my group can play more complex games. The problem is that most of the times we lack playtime so it shouldn't go above 90 mins of play which usually strikes out all of the more complex games anyways.


So that is what I'm looking for. My question for you: Do you know if any game on SPIEL ESSEN '16 will be worth looking into with those aspects in mind?

Thanks in Advance!

I played Evolution at Essen last year and came away with a copy and the Flight expansion. Easily fits the 6 players and less than 90 minute benchmark!

You're kidding, right? The OP asks about a game that doesn't last more than 90 minutes and that comes out in Essen...

Does Essen not have older games? I realize it won't be showcased, but I'm used to being able to find other items at conventions. Sadly, I've never been able to go to Essen.

Sure you find other games in Essen. But the OP didn't ask for any game but specifically mentioned Essen 16. I think that means new games.

Anyway maybe the OP shouldn't concentrate on new games (as I think he is) and could take a look at your recommandation.
