I thought I'd throw up a list of what I did manage to find and buy at Essen, I'd set myself a budget before going as it's so easy to get carried away with a car and a 5 minute walk to your hotel whistle

Although CGE were sold out of Last Will, I grabbed the expansion and ordered Last Will from Amazon from the hotel room . Love the look of this game before going to Essen, this expansion wasn't on my original list but what the hey.

I picked up several of these, one Carbon pair and 2 pocket versions that John Yianni was kind enough to split out of their double sale packets. Hive is my favourite abstract and often fills a lunch period in the office .

Had Rampage, pre ordered, I didn't actually play it at the show. Looks a lot of fun even if it's a short lived game. Now who can I rope in to sticker the 5000 meeples that come with it?

I bundled this in with my pre order for Lewis and Clark, it' really simple, but I love the theme. The mechanics are really simple as they're based on Solitaire which seems to fit in with the theme surprisingly well.

A great one for Solo gameplay.

Along with SOS Titanic I grabbed Lewis and Clark, I don't really have a lot of racing games in my collection and loved the artwork on this one before heading out. Luckily I popped mine open as my copy was missing 2 colours of player pawns, I popped back in on Sunday and even though Ludonaute were sold out they managed to find me some replacements.

The game also came with 2 sets of cards as one set was considered too thin.

I thought this one would be a tough sell to my partner, but after we'd played it we both liked it enough to buy it. It's pretty light/medium but I really enjoyed it.

Minion had the smallest booth going, had to grab this one, I have a print and play of the second stage expansion but I don't think there's enough meat on it's bones to justify buying, I like the nations though they're neat.

Another Sunday last minute purchase

I waited till Saturday to hunt for Glass Road, clearly too late as Z-Man had sold out of every English copy they had, Luckily I'd had the foresight to pre-order Caverna, luckily they'd solved their instructions issues by Friday and my copy was ready and waiting for me .

This thing is so heavy and has so much cardboard, it took me a solid hour to punch and bag everything. Sheesh.

I listed the wrong one earlier, I listed More buildings which I already owned, doh. I really enjoy this two player Agricola version, the vs nature of it is brilliant and the expansions add a lot of variety and replay ability. Without them I would have stopped playing it long ago.
