It seemed a long time ai was not able to visit Essen this year. But today the decision was made to go just Saturday.

A small list i can find. For all of you nothing new. Due to circumstances i could not do my homework earlier.

My specifications most games MUST meet are:
at least playable with 2
Max time 60 min
These specifications are overruled by games i need to have for collectional purposes. for example Master Print editions
Spent max. 150€ (it is a budget thing)


means Buy definite (preorder)
probably buy
let's have a look
needs at least a play
probably not

Status: Due to Dominique's review at de tafel plakt i got really interested in this game. He is always the bad guy, convincing me to add some games which turn into a great addition to my games collection. Because i read the reviews of Dominique very carefull. He gives me inspiration. Games picked by me from his reviews are most of the time a hit for me. Upgraded it 1

Status: Me, trains, games a good combination most of the time. So let's have a look. Games 3-5 most of the time do not have my interest. Doubts. Got downgraded to 1 . Probably not a buy because of the minimum of 3 players. Will play it if possible and has to be very good to get to Zwolle. After reading the review of Dominique it had gone up again. Improved 2 's
