As every year I collect here the games which I find interesting, at least at the moment

Most of the info is from here:

Spiel 2013 Preview
and here
Rahdo Runs Through

and the Spielbox website www.spielbox.de

There is no rating at the moment, this can change as the fair approaches.

Comments are welcome.

Edit:
Also got infos from this very nice list: Tina's Spiel 2013 Interests so far

I like trick taking games with twist in the rules, like this:

"Five Cucumbers is a trick-taking game with the goal of NOT winning the last trick!"

This is a quote from a Nations review, enough for me to like it:

Nation's in a nutshell
Take two parts Through the Ages, add one part Power Grid, one part Agricola and a sprinkling of Le Havre. Season with Tzolkin, a tiny bit of Sid Meyer and a pinch of Advanced Civilization. Stir, add Geeks and serve hot.

Worth a try:

Seven Swords is a game for two players in which one player controls seven samurai and the villagers to try to repel the attack of the evil villains while the other player controls the bandits who try to steal all the rice they can and destroy the village.
