I know, I know... I won't be in Essen physically, but I wonder why I wouldn't have a list like you guys.
Thank you in advance for reviews on these games if you play them at Spiel.

I like the frozen area (depending on seasons) idea, which is very thematic.

Interest :
Waiting for french rules version
Doesnt seem to be really language dependent, but there are names on tiles.
Artwork is surprising and attractive.

Worker placement... got to study if mechanics are original enough.

Starting to get a bit tired of Stefan's games which are too many this year, but I see no reason why this one wouldn't be as good as the others...
Not really convinced with the "Shogun Tower" re-use yet, I have to see that in action.

Interest :
K&K is always on the radar, plus rules overwiew is convincing.
This one could be a good surprise,
Sounds more attractive to me than Glück Auf/Coal Barons.

Seems to be Carcassone-like in the first place, but maybe better than that.
I've read the rules.
I've got a good feeling on this one (I don't know why).

A good way to fill that empty box
This game as been a success in my familly circles, but I doubt this expansion will make the game attractive enough for heavy players.
So I probably can live without it whistle

Seems more than decent despite a certain lack of originality.
