Trying to work out the buzz this year. I can't think of a single game like Escape: The Curse of the Temple that is getting loads of hype this year, but maybe I'm missing it.

Of the full games, this one. I've watch Rahdos video about it, read the rules, and it looks like a nice game with an interesting theme.

Also very interested to learn more about Tash-Kalar: Arena of Legends. We like quite a few of Vlaada Chvatils games, so this caught my interest immediately. I'd need to know more to see if it really is for us.

Then there are a lot of expansion that I'm really looking forward to:
Dungeon Petz: Dark Alleys
Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar – Tribes & Prophecies
Last Will: Getting Sacked
Mage Knight Board Game: Krang Character Expansion
Eclipse: Ship Pack One

EDIT: things may change, as I'm still looking around and finding out what will be at Essen, but at the moment, these are the games I'm most interested in (that have a good chance of being at Essen afaik).

I defy anyone to say they have seen a game offering a similar experience to this one

the board is in Red/Cyan 3D with 5 pairs of 3D glasses included and its from the designer of After Pablo and Cave Evil.

I just want to see it Looks like a co-op 'experience' game with a board that unfolds as the game progresses.



Hot? possibly not. Am I looking forward to it? Yes.

3. Board Game: Russian Railroads [Average Rating:7.79 Overall Rank:71]

What I'm actually most excited about is getting to meet a bunch of folks, and see a bunch of others who I haven't seen for some time.

But of the games, the two I've already played and know I really enjoy top the list. Russian Railroads is a very clever game, which I've been ready to buy since first playing it. And Sail to India (the Japanese edition, thank you) has been right up there with it.

Of the ones I haven't already played, I'm most intrigued by Café Melange, Twin Tin Bots, Machi Koro, and L'Aéropostale.

A civilizations game with less direct conflict, hopefully exactly what I'm looking for to play with my wife.

Of course I would say this one. Wish I could be there! I suppose the copy of the game that'll be arriving on my doorstep next month will have to console me...
