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!
