It was a long day but it was worth it.



And the mathtrade



I bought smaller games and some oldies and had a look At the new bigger ones That I Will pick up some of Those in the future or keep an eye on them.

We'll be back next year and i've learned a few things about Essen That I Will put in my Vdbmalmsteen's 2014 & Essen watchlist. I'll also keep my list updated for the entire year so I have less work next year.

Bought Ticket to Ride: Europe the day after in promotion for 25€

Below the comments on the games that were on my list; I didn't play. Something I will have to take in account for next year (a day longer or watch more video's)

Heroes of Normandie was moved to another hall and wasn't on a table when I got there. Too bad. I'll have to wait for my kickstarter to arrive.

On the secret-santa / wishlist:
Legacy: The Testament of Duke de Crecy. Got their when there wasn't really anyone to explain the game, wich was too bad. I like it but what turns me off a bit is the same as with ticket to ride. Why do the use such small cards?
CV was 25€ is English and 20€ in German. If the English would have been 20 I would have bought it. Now I'll await some further reviews about the replayability.

Hoping for a reprint:
Sail to india was sold out at Okazu. AEG version summer 2014.
Omnomnom was sold out. Will try to pick it up somewhere or hope for a reprint.
Origins was sold out. Still got my interest.

A price-drop will make me interessted again:
Tomorrow, I still like the theme and I'm interessted but is wasn't shown and 60€ is too much.
Citrus looks nice but 35€ is too expensive.
Didn't see The Phantom Society in play only a sign wich wasn't enough.

Want to play this
Nauticus looks better then Coal baron but I want to play it first
Koryo was sold out. Would like to see this get played.
Bruxelles 1893 looks nice but need to play it. Didn't read the rules.
Had high hopes for Prosperity but dislike the art and not sure about the game. Something I would need to play first.

Oops: I missed this one
Hubbly Bubbly Brew

Not for me
Not convinced by Banjooli Xeet
We didn't like the "offers" in The great persuader
Didn't like the look of Dungeon twister - the card game.
I missed the part that the kids had to run around in the house for Hetzen nach Schätzen. That killed it with our "bunch"
Coal baron/Gluck auff didn't make me feel warm or cold
Lost interest in Händler der Karibik
Bought and have some good fillers so BancoBanco didn't make it.
My wife don't like space and I wasn't fan of the artwork so no Space sheep.

This was a 2-player classic now made available again and adjusted to 4 players as well. So on the list it went.

Played it but got a part of the rules wrong. So we'll have to play this again but we got the system of the game wich is good.

The kids like to play and this one tries to teach them something as well.

No copies in the shop but they had one left in stock, so I got lucky.

9€

Edit: Played it, harder then it looks. They have to grow a bit older but a good game to deduct.

Was on the list and bought it instantly since my wife liked the video of Tom vassel.

Played it to try out the system. Good game but it's need a played aid card to keep track of the ways to score points. I'll fix this somehow.

I thought this would be great for our little one to learn the colors so I put it on the list.

By sunday the games we're only 5€ instead of 7€ so instant buy.

Played it and it's great. Has 4 different ways to play it adjusted to the age. The grownup version is a though memorygame.

Played this one before and and decided since we already own transamerica we would buy this one and ticket to ride: europe. That way we could have 3 traingames That are different enough.

Looked in a 2nd shop but it cost 32€ for a used german copy. Refused it when my compagnion noticed a dutch new shrinked version in the same shop for 13€.

Bought it and we had a lot of fun with the rest of the day.

Edit: We played it and it reminded my wife of Guillotine. After playing and watching Tom Vassels review I agree that you need to add the 2 extra rules.
