Because it's never too soon to begin whistle

And because I'm trying not to buy another game until then, wishful thinking maybe, but this'll be a reminder of what I don't wanna miss.

Edit (a few months later) : lol, what was I thinking, I'm so weak

Will definitely try not to exaggerate this year with my purchases, no more room on my games shelf...

Update : time to clean up my list, also already over pre-order budget, damn... surprise
Better walk during three days with my eyes closed !

Bought pre-Essen :
Love Letter (Kanai Factory Limited Edition)
Coup
Coloretto (10th anniversary edition)
Bora Bora (well, birthday present)

There you go :

This'll be my third Essen.

On my first one, I walked past him as he was going from one booth to another and didn't recognize him yet. How could I have known I would become such a fan, I had only bought Burgund back then.

Last year (six more of his games in my collection, two microbadges and one geekbadge later), I sadly totally missed him and the almost final version of Bora Bora he was demoing himself, aaargh angry

This year, I'll pay him my respects by buying some of the 4 new ones he's bringing out and meeting the man in person, I very much hope so anyway.

Update : will be either Bruges or Amerigo, since I already own Bora Bora and won't buy Rialto

The "Leaders" of Among the Stars ?

Could be interesting since I own the base game, but it hasn't had that many positive reviews from my friends, so... ?

Update : much KS bonus material and Essen pick up option decided me

Status : Kickstarted, pick up at Essen

No idea if there's gonna be a Clever Mojo Games / Game Salute booth

Update : not even sure it'll be published, it's about to miss its KS campaign
Shame though, really looks like a nice game, only problem is its very high price tag.

Update 2 : funded ! Barely made it. Congrats, very happy for designer Fred MacKenzie

Status : try if present, but probably won't buy because much too expensive

This one has the advantage of being designed by Edo's creators (love Edo !), but doesn't mean a thing, we'll see

Status : reading rules

Since there are no pre-orders, It'll be the first game I'm gonna try this year

Final decision : will probably buy, just need to try first

2013's Feld #3, very curious since I'm Belgian

Should be Feld's take on Race for the Galaxy/Glory to Rome, seems a sure hit.

Update : reading the reviews, appears to be lighter and more luck-dependent than I thought.

Update 2 : tried yesterday (23-07), really like it. Luck-dependent indeed, but very tactical and fun game. Shouldn't have bothered about the theme

Status : will buy the French version, probably published by Filosofia, but that one definitely won't be ready for Essen. Nevermind, I'll save some money (yeah right laugh)

Update 3 : last minute news, Filosofia will be at Essen with the French version. Budget concerns anyone... ?

Final decision : buy at Spiel if the price is right

Really interested

Status : reading rules

Update : normally wouldn't like it since it's very confrontational, but it also looks fun. Still on the fence because I'm very close to my max budget already with some games I still have to pre-order.

Same price at Essen than for pre-ordering --> good idea to test it first

Final decision : after looking at my current budget, I'll pass on this one, but I hope my friends will buy it :

Original game hasn't been very popular among my gamer friends.
Hope this expansion will add some interesting mechanic.

Update : rules are up : http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1016915/rules

Adds a much-needed small layer of complexity to a beautifully produced game, but otherwise much too light for many people's tastes (my friends' anyway)

Status : pre-ordered, pick up at Essen
