Nobody wanted to play Conflict of Heroes with me, so I guess I have to play solo.

Blind buy, if copies were available for sale. But sadly there won't be so try only.

Love the theme. Already own Battlelore for C&C, but I am interested in the AoT system. Simultaneous movement is cool. If only the minis would't require assembly.

Try only to see if AoT system would be worth the investment and minis hassle.

Also have to try The Sails - Armada Invincible and compare it to Sails of Glory

The Sails 50 €?

FLGS has no info on The Sails, but has Samurai battles for 60 €. So FLGS price for The Sails will probably be OK.

Looks interesting. Haven't played a naval game since Wooden Ships and Iron Men. Also has simultaneous movement.

Try only, because this won't be sold. So I'm safe from impulse buys here.

Discovered this by chance. And then watched the movie. I like CCGs/LCGs, but the only one working for me is Lord of the Rings LCG, because you don't need a competetive environment for that. But a "mock-up" CCG with fixed decks could be interesting.

Try and buy, if gameplay doesn't dissapoint and my co-gamer signals interest.

30 €

FLGS says 35€

Chibi Chibi! Looks sweet. Maybe Ankama has the German version at Essen.

Try. Buy only if German edition is available (nieces have to understand action cards)

50 €?

FLGS says German version not available, so buy if available at fair.

Love obscure Japanese games. I still regret not buying the big version of NiShiKi a few years back.

Just watched Tom Vasel's videos on Machi Koro and Sukimono. Seem to be nice little games. Guess, I'll just decide at he booth, some games will probably be sold out when I'm there on Sunday.

Seems like Machi Koro and Sukimono sold out on the 1st day.

Maybe I can find a copy. Need something to play with my nieces.

Buy, if i can find a copy.

35 €?

FLGS says OOP, so I'd better buy it if I find copy.

Maybe there will be something new for LotR LCG or Warhammer Roleplay. And I have to say Hello to a friend who will be doing demos. Maybe pick up the first 3 LotR nightmare packs.

Nothing known about this game?

OK, judging from the box this looks much too cartoony for my taste. And picture implies set collection. So probably skip this one.

Probably will get this one from Japon Brand. It's by artists FLIPFLOPs and will be easier to bring to the table than Barbarossa (which IMO is one of the best Dominion Clones.)

28 €?

The official list of the fair says 50€. Tempted. But will probably not buy, because noone will play this with me.

German edition should be available at Essen. Brings back old AH memories. Maybe buy, if I have money left

Probably will buy later at FLGS

Price at FLGS will be 55 € max. Will be more expensive at fair (preview copies flown in). Buy later.

Maybe I will buy the 2nd edition. A wargame that could really see actual play. Looks beautiful and the card mechanism might appeal to my regular co-gamer. And not too complicated.

Plus Japanese theme makes this very tempting for me.

Watched some reviews and how-to-play videos yesterday. Really beautiful and very interesting card management mechanism plus a healthy amount of bluffing. Buy if I can get for 50€ or less.


Was available at my FLGS. Bought it for 49,95 €.
