Many people are already working on Essen 2019 ... the lists, the hypes, the people and encounters.
What did last year in Essen .... what were the highlights and the titles that appealed to us.
Here is another image report from last Essen and a look back. Which titles appealed to you?
Last year I had the opportunity to visit the fair for only two and a half days. With my camera I try to capture the atmosphere, the people, the beautiful game elements and all the craziness.

I always make an impression of the fair, showroom and boardgame prices, people & designers with their passion.
Below a report from my point of view at Spiel. For those how are not able to visit Spiel is it maybe a little touch of the boardgame world in Essen. A flashback and enjoy!

Award: Nederlandse Spellenprijs


Ducosim organizes a game fair in Amersfoort in the Netherlands three times a year. This is for boardgames, miniature games, and familyand heavy wargames.
This time I went with my son to the Summer edition with an extra festivity namely the
nomination of the Dutch Games Prize for Family and Expert to be made known to all relevant jury members.
One of the conditions for the prize is that the Dutch game rules are present in the game box. Since the Netherlands
being a relatively small country does not translate all titles, but in the meantime, enough beautiful titles are published that last year.

The Dutch Games Prize, the quality award for Dutch-style board games. This game prize was created in 2001 by the national games association Ducosim, to offer the playing consumer an independent value judgment.

The Dutch Games Prize is divided into two categories: the Dutch Games Prize - Family and the Dutch Games Prize - experts. A family game is suitable for a large audience, including children from 8 years.
An expert game requires a little more playing experience.


For the best family game in the Netherlands nominated:

Unfortunately I could only made a small impression cause I had a limited time due to my mother's birthday The fair is also characterized by small publishers and designers with prototypes. Also 999 Games always gives room at this fair to show your own design to a professional team of game developers. Quined Games showed its new Essen releases that could be played. All nominated games from the Dutch Game Prize we presented by the publishers so people and press could discover this great games. One of the nice features of this fair is that you can easily play the new release of all well know publishers, especially in the Dutch language.

Ohanami is a little Cardgame in a Japanese setting. The thematically it's light but colorfull and cheerful.

Board Game: Ohanami

Somewhere in one of the Japanese gardens

Board Game: Ohanami

Box & Components

Board Game: Ohanami

Colorful cards like a flower painting

Board Game: Ohanami

Opening the Box

Board Game: Ohanami

The four types of Colour cards

Ohanami consists of a deck of 120 cards that are numbered from 1-120, with each card having one of four symbols on it. The game lasts three rounds, with players scoring at the end of each round, in addition to bonus scoring at the end of the game.

Board Game: Ohanami

Game Overview with four players

At the start of a round, each player receives a hand of ten cards. Each player chooses two cards, then passes the remaining cards to the left. All players reveal their cards at the same time, then decide whether to use 0, 1, or 2 of them in personal rows of cards. When you start a row, you can use any card; to add a card to an existing row, that card must be higher than the row's highest card or lower than the lowest one. A player can have at most three rows of cards. Discard any cards you don't use.

Board Game: Ohanami

Players hand

The game play will repeat this drafting and passing. When they have played ten cards, the first round will end. Players will receive 3 points for each blue card in their rows on the table.
At the start of round two each one will receive ten new card on their hands. At the end of the 2th round for each blue card 3 points will be given and 4 for each green card.

Board Game: Ohanami

Close Up

In the 3th round will work the same but at the end player will receive 7 points for each of the gray cards in their garden rows. Also the blue and green will be counted again. The pink Cherries will be counted two but in a pyramidal scoring, one card 1 point, 2 … 3point .. 3 cards 6 point etc. ..

Board Game: Ohanami

Players view

At the end of round 3 all points will be counted from each round and the gardener with the most points will have the best garden.

Board Game: Ohanami


The game play is solid and fast and easy to learn. For me it works as a little filler or played with my teenagers at home.

Board Game: Brass: Birmingham


When I read a few months ago that Brass got a reissue with new colorful and slightly dramatic images, my interest was aroused.
Brass one of my favorite games of the past decades.
The beautifully streamlined mechanism with the action cards always gives beautiful sometimes difficult decisions.
The new Birmingham card plays well and offers, among other things, the beer and pottery new ways in which you as a player can put your creativity.

Board Game: Brass: Birmingham


In the game, I always taste the historic romanticism of the industrial revolution, although the reality was really different.
The dark pewter also gives me the burden that the heavy work entailed for the ordinary workers.

For the passion of Martin Wallace, I am indebted to him how he wonderfully interweaves history and open game techniques for us
play fun at the table.

Board Game: Brass: Birmingham


During one of the play evenings in Hilversum, I could try the game because one of the members
brought with it. But the box will also be nice in my game box.
Designers Gavan Brown, Matt Tolman, and Martin Wallace have created a beautifully refined product with Artists Lina Cossette, David Forest, and Damien Mammoliti.
brought on the market! They can do this more often!

During the evening I took some photo's during our gameplay.
