I was not able to go to Essen, and was curious of which games really represent something new, fresh or original as opposed to games which are a bit of the same with a different dress.

Please mention:

1. The Game
2. What is Original, refreshing or new
3. Re-playability
3. Did you played it and what did you enjoyed more,

This is the reason why I post this list. I read a bit about it, the Theme and the gameplay, and was enough to call my attention. See:
http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/867594/suburban-stratagems.


I could end up buying this game, and was just curious, what game were in Essen that strike you as more refreshing and original ?

1. Snowdonia - worker placement plus...

2. The weather affects players ability to do actions - good/bad/not-at-all PLUS the game plays itself to a finish like an invisible player (prevents hording, stalling etc)

3. Re-playability - the weather and the invisible player can give you slow or fast games to which players must adapt - maximise scoring, push your luck etc

4. I designed it blush
