All the things I really need to take a look at at Essen this year. Or pick up.

I'll be there for the full 4 days, so I will need and want to play tons of games

The reviews are a bit mixed, but it still looks interesting enough. Going to try it before considering a purchase though.

Kickstarted this. Did not get the base set last year but got the two-in-one this time around. I actually did enjoy the base game but never got around to pick it up.

I like the Stronghold games. Going to visit their booth for sure and check out their new material. Last year I picked up Core Worlds + expansion, Space Cadet and Article 27, so I consider myself a fan Plus their demos have been awesome.

Maybe there will be a big Ascension deal again. I didn't pick this up last year which I regret a lot.
Maybe we'll see some Ascension Online.
And maybe there is some extra for Solforge around, who knows. I've grown to love Solforge really much, any stuff for it will be mine.

Great looking games, might be worth a peak. Last year they were right at the entrance though, which made trying to get any game in a pain, and I stopped bothering in the end.

Signed up for Essen pickups.

I like deckbuilding games in general, and never played Thunderstone. What I read about it seems interesting, so if possible I'd like to play any of the Thunderstone Advance sets. If I like it enough I may pick up a box and not the starter set. Hopefully not only German editions, the stand last year was all German which was off-putting.

With all the buzz going on about this you can't fail to notice it around here. It does look very interesting and I'm on the fence about preordering. Still, I will visit the Portal booth anyway because of Theseus so nothing lost, yet.

Since it released it's been constantly sold-out in the LFGS. May just hold off and pick it up in Essen. On the other hand, buying sooner would make the sudden increase to 'the wall of games' less obvious. Dilemma's...
