This was my 11th visit to Spiel. I went on fryday together with my husband. We enjoyed the fair, but left early to enjoy the sunny weather in Essen city center (very nice to feel the sun om our skin again after all the rain in the Netherlands).

This is my loot:

It was almost a game in itself to find this game. I wantend to have this because of the theme. The game looks great as well and was very cheap in comparisson to other big box games.

We played it yesterday and I liked it very much.

I bought this game because of the author, the buzz and the looks. And it's the type of game I play the most: light euro playable within an hour.

When we bought the game the author's were signing so we stept in line to have our copy signed. It turned out they not only signed but also made a drawing. That howevever took so much time (10-15 minutes) that we decided to drop out of the line because standing in line for more than one hour is too long (there were 15 persons in front of us)

We bought the expansion for agricola 2 player game. We really like this agricola spin-off, so this was a must have.

The reviews of this game made me believe that this my cup of tea! Short, fun, easy and dices! And you can sing Viva Las Vegas from THE King during play.

Played it yesterday and it was just what I hoped it would be. I expect to see this game a lot on my table!

My birthday is within a month so my husband bought a few gifts for me.

This was the first because we both like the games of Friedemann.

This game they gave my husband for free when he bought THE 2f games for my birthday.

We know this game very well since we gave it away to our guests on our wedding because it combines my passion for games with my husbands passion for Elvis! We played this game a few times and it always was a lot of fun.

Another birthday gift for me!

I really like space allert and this game sounds like an easier version of that type of game. I am really curious about this one! My husband also bought the expansion.
