With Essen 2013 just around the corner, I have to admit that I have not really kept up with the latest buzz in the gaming world. In order to change that, please tell me what are the games that should be on my radar screen? Which games are you really looking forward to? What is THE latest hot Essen game that Lee from Underhills should bring back for us from Essen?

Please feel free to comment and put other things on our radar. This list is primarily for the exclusive members of the Bureau of Underground Revolutionary Pony Surveillance (BURPS), but we are accepting input from other comrades!

(BURPS Flag!)

We collect sheep games, but beyond the theme this game looks to be nice abstract area control title.

New Mac Geerdts but no rondel? I glanced through the 4-page rules at Underhill's Essen Game Day and think this looked fantastic!

Underhill's has a demo copy.

All of his titles (except Loyang) have been great hits with me, even Merkator.

The surprise game of BGG.con 2013! Probably because it was not on my radar earlier.

This is basically a race game, with deck building and resource management thrown in. It uses the left-hand, right-hand neighbor mechanic from 7 wonders, and it is very thematic.
