I am in the fortunate position that:

A) I live in the close proximity of the Makkah for boardgamers;
B) I was able to save money for this event (I only have one hobby).

This year is exceptionally special as I have holiday so I will be there four days :-)
Wargaming is not big in Essen but most hotness and some oldies are there and the atmosphere is just great.

Curious to hear who of you wargamers will visit Essen this year and what's on your wargame wish list. Here is what's on my list:

Yes, the long anticipated Blocks in the West will be available at the fair.

Can't wait to get my hands on it and combine it with Blocks in the East for the largest block ETO encounter the world has ever seen!

Nice timing Emanuele, I look forward to seeing you again!

Recently this game drew my attention and I am not sure why. I was intrigued by Andean Abyss but for some reason I did not ake the plunge. Now with Cuba Libre I will get my feet wet with a COIN game.

After the fantastic 'Battle above the clouds' this is a logic purchase and how nice it will be available at Essen (at least I assume to find it there since it is available on the MMP website).

So once you get one, you want them all....
The fourth game in the Napoleonic library and the 5th(!) edition of Leipzig. With two maps a playable game and one that can't be missing in my collection.
Thanks Kevin for providing us with the ultimate Napoleonic wargame collection!

Should have gotten this long time ago but never got over the fact they didn't make a boxed version. How nice if you have the collection in a box.
I guess it was an economic choice...still a cool game and I will grab a copy of special ops #3.

Still on the fence and I will decide to buy it once I am in Essen. Generally I am not too fond of CDG's (Pursuit of Glory and Amateurs to Arms are the exception). Some very positive comments and an attractive price, comes with a beautifully crafted hardmounted board (in fact there are two boards).

My wallet is empty if all games are available but I will still look for some oldies that are on my wish list for a long time. My Credit Card will be my best friend if I find this game...

Same as above, should I find it, it will be mine!
Always was intrigued by this war and a pitty there are not many games (certainly not campaign games) on this era.

However, Herman Luttmann of White Dog games gave us the excellent 'Duel of Eagles' and he promised more games on battles from the Franco-Prussian war!
Maybe I should save some money....

Never seen it in all my years that I visit Essen but you'll never know.
Like Operation Typhoon, this is a game with that intrigues me a lot.

If you won't see any postings from me after october, this means I was not able to pay my internet bills any longer....

Maybe someone wants to trade this for, let's say, Three Days of Gettysburg?
