Was one of the preorder guys- after playing this with a buddy i decided that here was finally a deckbuilder I could play and enjoy. The European map expansion is hilarious!

Man, that guy at the booth is a smooth talker: he even managed to sell me the calculator thingy. If I had waited, I could have had both games for the same price on the weekend. Oh, well, I knew I would be getting it anyway.

One of my finds of the show for 20 Euros. I think the stand guy, who was filling in for the boss, made a mistake on the proce, so I came away with a mega-bargain.

Man, glad I preordered. They thought I wouldn't need to, but I did anyway. The first play left me stunned: this may be the game of the show, but I need to rate Pax Porfirana still.

Naturally, i had to get the newest Phil Eklund game. Still to play but it looks really, really good and re-implements one of my favorites, Lords of the Sierra MJadre.

Actually stood in line for this the first day. How can it take people so long at these things? We stand in line 20 minutes, and then they get to the stand and start trying to make decisions?!? And the staff look like they are surprised when the people arrive. Man, the inefficiency is amazing.

I have copy #1. Really liked Swedish Parliament, and this also looks to be a fun one.

Came in a Essen trade. Easily one of the worst back covers of a game, ever.

After playing once I had to have it. Great graphic design, great play. Got the inside box cover signed by the artist who added a cool sketch as well.

Had to chuckle as I stood in line waiting for a game called 'Queue'. I gather they sold out on this one as well, so glad to get my copy. My god, six thick rulebooks on nice paper inside the box complete with paste-up stickers for all the cards in each language, all for 25 Euros??

Came in an Essen trade. My first FFG game; it had a chance for the them,e as well as the fact it is devoid of stupid plastic pieces.

...and this. Would have been nice to grab her as well, but I'd probably lose my hand.

The final purchase, also a bit of an impulse buy. One of the last two copies the guy had. Interested talking with him. Not normally my genre, but they have tried to do something very different, and I got a recommendation from a friend who tried it last year, so took the plunge on it.
