This is just my usual and not that good list of games to watch for this year's Essen Spiel.

Some random notes and observations on my level of interest on the boardgames, I will update and change this list as more info get's my way.

Feel free to leave your comments and suggestions.

In the end I will update with what i actually end up buying...

A "work" in progress...



last years loot

p.s.- and I promise I am not even going to try and promote my new great games: Madeira and Panamax on this geek list ... ninja
