Just a geeklist of games that are going to be at Eseen 2013 (some may already be available in the US but I'm using Spiel 2013 Preview as my guide) that I am interested in and posting my (random) thoughts to them. Feel free to comment

Notes on my gaming habits:

- I generally play games with just 2 players, so games that need at least 3 or don't play well with only 2 are not what I'm looking for

- I generally play medium weight Euros (going by game weight usually a max around 3 to 3.2). I'm fine with easy, quick fillers too

- I generally play games where a single play (with just 2 players) finishes in an hour or so. Slightly longer than that for a first time play is also acceptable

Thoughts:
- Will wait and see the reviews on this one. Might be a bit too heavy for my liking. Also it scales 2 to 5 but not sure how well it would be for 2 players only. I own but have yet played Antike Duellum, however that might be a better fit for me. I'll still keep my eye on this one when there's more info available
- Bought several months ago as part of Miniature Market's Deal of the Day. I did play a friends copy and thought it was a good game. I really like the deck building aspect. Been trying to get this played at my weekly meetup but hasn't hit the table there (nor at home where I plan on teaching it to my wife at some point)

- Played a few months ago and my wife enjoyed it but needs another play to see if it will stick around

Thoughts:
- I've already seen a couple of postive thoughts about this game. I'm going to keep following it and get a better idea of how well it plays with 2 and the complexity level. Also, I'm hoping the 120 minutes is more for 4 players than 2

- Played once a few months ago. I can see why it is so popular but I wasn't blown away like I had expected. Need to play at least once more to see if I want to pick it up

- Looks pretty, but want to wait and see how it plays with just 2 players, how heavy of a game it is (currently 3.0), and the playing time with just 2

Edit: picked up a copy on a ding & dent shelf at my local flgs the other week. I did get a play in at Geekway to the West and found it to be enjoyable. Couldn't pass it up for $25 either. If my wife doesn't like it, I'll trade it

Thoughts:
- I'm interested but hesitant on games which have Area Control / Area Influence as a mechanic and how well it plays with just 2 players. It seems if a game uses area control and isn't designed as a 2 player only game, then it tends to lose something from the overall gaming experience. I'll wait and see what the reviews say on how it plays with 2

edit: added this as an add-on to the Petite Pastiche/Fantasiqua KS. I spent way too much money on that campaign

Thoughts:
- Sounds like it plays very well with 2 players and I'm guessing it's not going to be as heavy as Agricola or Ora et Labora (I do really like Agricola: All Creature Big and Small). Probably will get this one if game weight is what I'm expecting

edit: bought a copy a few months ago when it was Miniature Market's daily deal. I was able to learn the game from my game group and enjoyed it so I taught it to my wife a few days afterwards and it went over pretty well.

- Given majority control seems to be a big factor in the game, not sure how well it would play with just 2. Will follow the comments/reviews as they become more readily available

edit: looks to be a bit on the heavier side. Still wouldn't mind playing it but probably won't buy a copy until I can play and see if it would be something my wife would even consider playing

- Believe this is just on there as it should be the 2nd edition with the correct tiles. There's also a mini expansion available (was in a magazine originally)
- I played this twice (2P and I think 3P, maybe it was 4P). I thought the game was good (much better with just 2 due to playing time) but I'm still torn on it. I suppose if I come across a reasonably priced 2nd edition, I'll pick it and see if the wife likes it.

edit 2: wife enjoyed it. we've played it a few times since

- Already available in the US but I haven't played it yet. The theme does nothing for me but I still won't mind giving a try.

Edit: Played a few weeks ago. Not a bad game, but didn't do anything for me

- Picked up a ding & dent copy because it was really cheap (it does have a big hole in the middle of the box top, but components are fine). Still haven't played it since my initial time.

- Looks like a winner to me. Might also be the closest I come to Familienbande (even though I'm sure they are totally different games, I just can't track down a copy of that one). Anyway, will probably end up getting this one unless for some reason it doesn't scale well to 2 (but given it's listed as 1 to 4, I don't think that will be an issue)

edit: purchased since had a $20 coupon expiring

- purchased and played a few times. An okay game, though I'm not big of the speed factor but my wife like that aspect.
- plays alright with 2, but we never found the dirt to be much of an issue. better with more

Thoughts:
- Currently it only shows German and with only a picture of the box top, I can't see if there is any in game text. If not, then hopefully Ravensburger puts out a multi-language rulebook otherwise maybe a company will pick it up and put out an English edition. If there is one, this will probably be another pick up for me

- Says 2 to 5 players but has auction/bidding as a mechanic. That's usually hit or miss on how well it plays with just 2 players
- Waiting to see where the game weight falls.
- Heard it's not very good with 2, still would like to play it sometime

Originally stated was only going to be in French, but a thread now states an English edition is planned. Regardless, very little text on the cards so only really need English rules which are now available

- Picked up a copy a few months ago after playing it at a meetup. Nice, quick filler.

Thoughts:
- I know not everyone loves Days of Wonder, but I tend to think they usually put out nice looking games.
- It doesn't have the racing mechanic, but I'm still getting a feel it might not be a strong game with just 2 players. Will have to wait and see what reviews have to say about it

Edit: Picked up a copy last week (on a whim, actually). Haven't gotten it to the table yet though
Edit 2: Learned how to play this at Geekway to the West and it was an enjoyable experience. Taught it to my wife and it seemed to play well with 2. It's also a pretty quick game so we played it twice back to back.

- I'll most definitely be picking this one up

Edit 1: picked up a copy 11/1. Read the rules and hoping to try it in the next day or two
Edit 2: played 2x on 11/2 and both times I played the Phantom with La Carolla at the far left of the track (highest handicap). In both games the investigator was able to get it down to 2 suspects within 2 turns or so, however from there I was able to keep the remaining suspects where both would either appear or not. Won once, lost the other. I think I prefer Mr Jack a little more but I've also played that half a dozen times. I'm sure I'll give Phantom a few more tries, it's a nice change up from Mr Jack and a solid 7/10
