Hello everybody!

This is my very first geeklist, and it's about the games that I'm going to look out in Essen this year (2013).

It's also a instrument for me to keep track of all the booths, promos, and infos about these games.

Feel free to comment!

Out of curiosity. As with most Feld's games, sounds a bit dry.

Another civ game to try out! Still have to read the rules!
Nominated for "Worst Graphics Award 2013".

Read the rules. It lacks a catch up mechanism, and it only rewards the best player... sounds strange to me.

Mercury games: hall/booth 2-F136
(schwerkraft verlag)

Price €55 at Spiel 2013, but €50 if preordered through German publisher Schwerkraft-Verlag, which is handling sales for Mercury Games at the show. To preorder, email your request to info@schwerkraft-verlag.de and request pick-up at Spiel 2013 or place an order through the Schwerkraft website.

Simple worker placement (and set collection) game. Looks pretty straightforward to me.

Price €35

• Note that Pegasus Spiele (Hall/booth 3-M110 ) and eggertspiele will have 300 German-only copies of Glück Auf at Spiel 2013 while the regular edition of the game from these publishers includes rules in both English and German. For an English-language edition of Coal Baron at Spiel 2013, you'll need to visit the R&R Games stand (hall/booth 1-G149).

• Available in both a regular edition and a 500-copy wooden collector's edition (with only German rules). One hundred copies will be available for preorder through eggertspiele, with the remainder on hand at Spiel 2013.

the idea of building a richer family through weddings is quite intriguing.

try.

Price €36 when preordered from the Portal Games website. Upgrade options are available through that link.

What sounds strange to me is that this game is for players aged 8+, and it treats themes like "complicances at birth" and it should not be that easy to play as well.

It seems there has been a lot of thinking and designing behind this game, so it's worth trying.

Will it take the place of Through the Ages or Clash of Cultures?
The basic resources are the same as TTA.
