Last year was my first essen visit and I thought I went all out, figuring I wouldn't get a bigger load of games the comming years. Now the spiel 2013 edition has come and gone and boy was I wrong. Last year including all promos I got 30 new games.

I found out about the math trade a few days before it closed so was able to trade 4 games. I also bought three games through an Essenpick-up auction. This year I was able to spend a lot of time preparing for Essen and going trough the essen auction lists and math trade which resulted in 12 trades and over 10 secondhand titles for very decent prices.

My remaining budget went into buying new games including legacy of duke de crecy and craftsmen which I both pre-ordered. The total of 30 games last year was reached before I drove to Essen.
