Essen… Essen… Remain calm, no problem. Wait, that's coming out at SPIEL‽ robot Must have!

I'm translating or editing many of my Essen wants, so I managed to avoid making a list like this…

I forgot about this! Nearly every animal of this arrived broken last year, but Corné basically told me there wasn't really much he could do about it until this Essen.

Would someone would be willing to acquire replacement game or animals for me, gently packed tightly to prevent breakage? If so, I'll make arrangements with Corné right away! Please?

Hall 1 – booth D-129

I guess it really was a complete miracle that Tricky Trek arrived completely intact the year before. (Honestly, I think it's because the animals in Trek were packed so closely to one another in the tight bag that they couldn't jostle and break. The tube gave them room to move.

Yay! I much prefer the cardboard versions of the ABACUSSPIELE catalog / print-and-play mini-expansions. Is anyone willing to pick this up for me?

Adam Kałuża's K2 has been providing plenty of entertainment. Although The Cave looks interesting, I suspect it won't be something that needs to be on my shelf; this on the other hand, may pack that will-I-survive terror that K2 does, adding to it the need to keep your clients alive…. I can't wait! …but Rebel seem to trickle over to us eventually, so this may move down into the "not worried about it" section….

Hall 2 – booth D113

Update: The Mount Everest rulebook makes it clear that you can also use this as a K2 expansion, if you like. This double functionality has me very keen on getting this… at some point.

The tease continues? The first photos of this game started appearing two years ago, and that's when my lust began. In the interim, I've helped playtest refinements to the game, and watched it attempt to be at three SPIEL fairs. May the third time be the charm, because it is not only gorgeous: It also hosts a truly unique (if titular) mechanism for an abstract strategy game. If it makes it to Essen, then I will finally feel confident of being able to get it here eventually. Until then, it shall remain vaporware to me, as much as I hate to say it.

Hanabi Deluxe is €60… but I'm tempted. It seems like the right way to play this game.

So far, they've provided confusing information: only 600 copies, but may be available in other languages later

So, the opportunistic part of my says, "," but the practical part says, "… it'll be available later."

My curiosity level for this is very high. I must play it; however, I also must resist any temptation to purchase it until I do, because there are numerous indications that it might be not to my tastes. …but how novel it seems!

Yes! Another Friday Project game! I've rather liked all of those so far. Wait. Bluffing? robot Take that‽ gulp I'm not optimistic, but I remain curious….

Oh, and besides, the rest of the Friday Project has been published by RGG, so I'm sure I can get this here eventually, should it not be too junk-food for my tastes. Thus, Essen urgency is…
Thanks to WEM's information, I guess I must assess this before SPIEL….

This game has some warped-but-accessible new mechanisms in it, and sounds great. Pearl Games has cranked out consistent goodness, and I'm sure this is no exception. Although working on the game has made me want to visit the Art Nouveau architecture in Belgium, it also made my need to get this from Essen…
