I live pretty close to Essen, but I have never been to Spiel. This year that's finally going to change. I will go for one day to see all the new games and hopefully be able to play some of them. I know one day is way to short, that's why I'm making this list. I will add to this list all games of interest to me. Hopefully, this way I won't forget what booths to visit.

*update*

I was planning on adding only games that I was really interesting in and removing games that lost my interest. After thinking about it, I have found two problems with this:
1. I will loose the comments everytime I remove a game (my own and others).
2. I will not be able to change my mind when new information comes out or be convinced by others.

So from now own I will start adding more games, even if I'm only slightly interested (pretty pictures help alot). And I won't remove a game, but will comment why I'm not interested anymore.

Description:
In Walk the Plank!, players represent the worst pirates in a captain's crew. The captain has rounded you all up because you're all lazy and stupid and simply not worth the rum and loot you get paid. That said, the captain has decided he's willing to keep two of you in his crew. To prove you're worthy, you will fight amongst yourselves, trying to shove other players' pirates off the end of the plank while keeping yours alive!

Kickstarted with Essen pickup. Great game for public game nights. Easy to teach, fun to play.

Players can discard certain cards to learn hidden information about the villain, go through special training to increase their attack abilities, and take special actions from other cards in the game.

Sounds like an interesting game. Co-op, not too long and at a great price.

I don't know much about this yet, but the art is pretty cool. And with an Essen release I might pick this up. Let's wait until we see the kickstarter on Sept. 15.

Kickstarter went live and I'm a backer. Now it's waiting for the videoreviews.

Description:
Players in Mascarade start with six coins and a randomly dealt a character card. Characters stay face up just long enough for players to more or less memorize them, then are turned face down. Your goal is to be the first player to hold 13 coins, and while you start nearly halfway to that goal, you can go down just as surely as you can go up!

Comment:
I'm a big fan of the Resistance and I also like Coup. But I'm not yet convinced with this one. I will read some review and watch the videos. It's not that expensive, but where do I draw the line? (meaning I will probably get this one anyway )
*update*
Ok, I preordered this. I just couldn't resist.

Description:
Each player in Buccaneer Bones starts with six ships on the six numbered ports of his player mat; each ship is in a sailing lane that consists of a port, a sea space, and an island. On a turn, the player rolls four dice, then rerolls as many as he wants; if he now has a pair, he advances the ship matching the number rolled one space (from port to sea or from sea to island) and if he has a three-of-a-kind, he advances the appropriate ship two spaces (from port to island). When a player has a ship on an island, he receives a bonus, also if he has a three-of-a-kind matching that island number, the ship grabs one treasure, then returns to port.

Comment:
This was a bit of an impulse buy, but after all those expensive kickstarters with crazy shipping costs who can say no?

Description:
Kill the Overlord is a fun, fast-paced game of political murder for 4 to 8 players that can be played in about twenty minutes. The goal of the game is simple: Eliminate other players by sending the Overlord's executioner after them, while at the same time saving your own skin. Each time a player dies, his survivors climb another rung up the political ladder, taking the deceased's title and all the wealth and power that comes with it. The player who can secure enough wealth and the title of Overlord first will become the True Ultimate Supreme Overlord (and win the game).

Comment:
I saw this game on other Essen 2013 lists. It looks interesting (I like short and simple), but unfortunately APE Games won't be attending SPIEL this year. Let's hope I can find it in any of the retail shops at SPIEL. But if anyone has a tip on preordering one, please let me know.

Description:
The card game Cheaty Mages puts you in the role of a wizard who has come to watch and bet on monsters fighting in an arena. Of course, you have all of your spells to help the monsters you've bet on win (or harm the monsters fighting against yours) – but then again, so do all of the other players, too! What's more, judges line the arena during combat and if players push things too far with their cheating spells, a judge might intervene and dispel – or even eject – the fighter! Who will walk away with the largest pile of gold?

Comment:
Don't know much about this game, but it's from the designer of Love Letter. And if it's half as good, it's a must buy for me.

Description:
In the dice and card game CV you will lead a character through his entire life, making many choices about friends, relations, jobs and activities.
Gameplay is built around the Yahtzee-style dice rolling and re-rolling system. On their dice, players are trying to roll sets of symbols that allow them to acquire cards; each round these cards give benefits of some kind, such as new symbols and special abilities. At the end of the game, each kind of card scores points for the player.

Comment:
Looks fun, but more dice games?

*update*
Ok, I'm certainly interested but I think it's a bit too expensive for me. Maybe if I leave Essen with money in my pocket I might swing by and buy a copy.

Description:
In City Council each player takes the role of a council member of a newly founded city. The government will select the members of the city council for the first few years until the city rises and flourishes, by which time the most popular member will receive the position of Mayor. In order to build the city, you and the other councilmen must maintain a low level of pollution, fight crime, create jobs, and sustain an adequate city budget. If you and the others don't keep up the good work, the city project might not succeed, the government will take over, and all players will lose.

Comment:
Where is that Rulebook?

*update*
Ok, I have read the rulebook and I'm still interested. I'm curious how they will handle the kickstarter: backers can pick up the game before the project is over. I have no idea how they are going to handle this. Maybe there is a pledge level for stretchgoals only and you still have to pay when you pick up the game? Now it all comes down to the price (and the videoreview of Rahdo).

*update2*
I pledged as an early backer for the game. With shipping included it is both cheaper and more convenient to have it shipped. I'll be picking up enough games as it is and it also gives more time to wait for extra reviews.

$47

Koryŏ is a game based in an uchronian and politico-steampunk universe.
Each turn, players simultaneously choose a family of politician from their hand, and play as many cards of this family as they have and wish to. Each family has a value ranging from 1 to 9, which indicates both the number of cards in the family and the number of victory points the player controlling this family will score at the end of the game.

Description:
In Agent Hunter, two players act as rival agents attempting to eliminate their opponent's safe houses, which are represented by face-down cards; the cards range in value from 0 to 9. The closer you get to uncovering your target, however, the more you risk compromising your own position. Stealth and cunning are your greatest allies as only agents who remain hidden in the shadows will survive the hunt.

Comment:
This game was for sale at Gen Con, not sure if it's for sale at Essen. But it looks like an interesting micro game. Only 2 player, so not as much fun as Love Letter (one of my favorites). But maybe as a nice filler if you're waiting for new game to start on gamenights.

Description:
King and Assassins is an asymmetrical fantasy game of strategy and deception for two players. One player controls a vile king and his knightly lackeys who try to force their way into the castle through a mob of wrathful citizens. The other player controls the mob itself and – more importantly – three assassins who hide among the crowd hoping to kill or stop the ruler long enough for the people to deal with him using their bare fists. The king has only so much time before he is overpowered by his own subjects but using guile and swords of his guards he may be able to eliminate the assassins and hopefully escape into the safety of his palace.

Description:
Metallum is a strategy game for two players who take on roles of corporate pilots charged with the task of directing their factory ships in order to construct a more efficient mining network on the system's planets than their opponent does. Each round consists of three main phases:

Programming: Players simultaneously create a program by composing puzzle-like subroutines that activate various systems on the factory ship (engines for moving, production for deploying Extractors, etc.). Some of the more powerful subroutines take more time to execute and hence impede your ability to react to the other player's moves — and they might even prevent you from activating other ship systems.
Action: Players execute programs composed during the programming phase. Since the order of execution of subroutines is decided by the player, the same program can yield vastly different outcomes, which leads to many interesting tactical decisions. During this phase new Extractors are also deployed on the system's planets.
Profits: Players earn credits for the planets on which they have their Extractors depending on who has more of them.
After nine rounds, the pilot who's earned the most credits for his corporation is declared the winner.

In Theseus: The Dark Orbit, players move their pawns around the space station and activate the abilities of different rooms. Every move you take changes the movement possibilities of your opponent. On your turn, you need to think about which room you want to reach and (in addition) how to mess your opponent's movement, which leads to great choices and meaningful decisions.

Comment:
I don't know how he does it, but Ignacy is winning me over with his blogposts. It started with The Legacy, but now his blog about Theseus is making me very curious. There isn't a lot of information yet, but I will definitely follow this one.

Description:
In Rogue Agent, players control an agent working for the shady corporation known as "The Agency", created to control Rain City's crime rate, which has rapidly outpaced the capabilities of the regular police force. Players win the game by obtaining the most power over the city in a race against the game system that creates a living city in which crime and other challenges await at every corner. Each round consists of an action phase, preceded by an upkeep phase. During this action phase, players score power by successfully eliminating assassins, turning in crime bosses, and defusing high-tech bombs that threaten to destroy whole districts. Through investigation of city areas, players gather resources that will be vital for survival. Positioning collaborators in the different locations of the city aids agents in overcoming confrontations with local thugs.

I like the theme, but I'm not sure if this game is for me. I hope to see some more info about this game.

Description:
Nations is an intense historical board game for 1-5 players that takes 90-180 minutes to play. Players control the fate of nations from their humble start in prehistoric times until the beginning of World War I. The nations constantly compete against each other and must balance immediate needs, long-term growth, threats, and opportunities. Victory points (VPs) are mainly gained by building up a great Heritage during the game, and through Wonders and Buildings at the end of the game. The game lasts eight rounds, and the nation with the most VPs wins.

Description:
In Might & Magic Heroes: The Board Game, each player becomes a leader of one of four different factions hoping to conquer and govern the realms of Ashan.
At first, players control just one hero, a small army, and a city — but with every passing round, their heroes gain experience and grow in power, armies become more numerous, and small towns turn into enormous capitals.

Comment:
It looks like a nice game. Will have to read the rules, but the Essen price makes this very interesting.

Price:
Essen price €35 (normal price €50)

Description:
The Witches: A Discworld Game is set in the magically charged land of Lancre. Players take on the role of trainee witches, such as Tiffany Aching and Petulia Gristle, learning their craft and dealing with all the problems, both petty and serious, that life on Discworld can throw at them. A subtle blend of headology, magic and, of course, the all-important cup of tea will see our heroines tackle everything from a sick pig to a full-blown invasion of elves. Each player tries to be better at everything than the others, while also cooperating to prevent crises from escalating.

Comment:
Just picked up Ank Morpork. I love Discworld, so I might have to buy even if it's not all that good (but hoping it will be).

25. Board Game: Countdown: Special Ops [Average Rating:5.24 Overall Rank:13971]

Description:
In this 100% modular game you and your team mates are in charge of a special ops team with a special mission! Find hidden bombs and dismantle them, help hostages into safety or take out terrorist leaders. To start your first mission is easy: randomly take a mission card on the first level (level green). A single mission takes only 30 minutes of play + 5 minutes to prepare if you play it realtime. If you have enjoyed your first "training on the job" - hopefully with not too many casualties - many, many other game modes are available for you to try out. So why wait and start up your first mission with COUNTDOWN.

Comment:
It looks interesting, but I don't really like the graphics. I think I'm going to pass on this one.

Price:
€30
