My friend and I, went to our first Essen, and was there thursday and friday. Less than an hour after entering the holy halls, we had to make our first trip to the car. After that, we decided to pickup our preorders, but before we finished that, we had to go to the car to load off for the second time. We saw to much interesting stuff, and had to open our wallets, and close the deal.

This is the first haul to the car - yes... we were proud of ourselves. We thought it was pretty big:




When we got outside the halls for the second trip to the car, we realized the first haul was NOTHING:




Back at the hotel, we found a luggage cart. Good thing... I don't think we could have managed to get the games to our room without it:





First days combined loot in the hotel room:




On friday we were more modest - not by choice... we had spent almost all of our money by 4 pm, and decided to leave before over drafting our VISA cards.


Second days combined loot:



The result of a 2 day shopping frenzy:




My share of the loot in the basement at home:



We managed to load it all and our luggage into the small Skoda Citigo. It's a good thing we ran out of money, because we wouldn't have had room for much more.

Right behind the AEG booth, I picked up my Suburbia preorder. Ted was present, and before I could stop him, he ruined my game with a sharpie. He seemed pretty happy about it.

And Mercante. I also got one more of the excellent AEG bags. The shoulder strap was wide, and the bags was BIG - all good. Unfortunately both bag was thrashed after less than 30 min. The stitches didn't hold up, and luckily I had my trusty Ikea bags.



Very sad indeed

After that the order is mostly a blur, so this rest is in somewhat random order.
