I was working the Bezier Games booth first thing Thurs morning, so I missed out on a couple of things I was interested in (Machi Koro, Patchistory), but here is what I did end up with, along with the odd musing about them.

Found a copy of this at one of the booths of used games. It is in really good shape, and for 10€ I couldn't say no.

Next year, someone remind me to avoid the used games area.

Got this for 8€. Looks to be unplayed.

Lorna was kind enough to grab one of the last English copies of this for me.

Got to try this tonight and I like it. It comes with many more development and event cards than you will see in any one game, which I like. As for difficulty, it feels less difficult than Through the Ages, and for some, could be a good stepping stone to that game.

Huge Dense box. I think I dislocated Matt Leacock's shoulder when I handed this to him. After punching, it wasn't noticeably lighter. I'm a bit of a Uwe fanboy, so this was a no-brainer.

Not the base game, but a small promo of two additional city tiles (4 points/+1 ship, 2 points/2 on each cultist track). I can't wait until next year (according to the Feuerland reps a their booth) when the full expansion comes out.

I have the ones from last year form one of the magazines. These promos were from AbacusSpiele and are on stock more comparable to the ones from the base game.

I was introduced to this by Joe Huber at last year's EGG weekend. It is available in many languages, but is not available in English, nor in the US. I have a few DIY copies of this about, so I picked this up as a future gift.

It's a wonderful intersection of point-grubby Euro and a trick taking game, with a healthy dose of screwing your neighbors.

Don't know much about this one, but it's short enough and has dice, so the family will probably like it.

Lookout had issues with this, as none of the copies came with cards in the box. They were handing out small Agricola labelled linen drawstring bags with the cards in them.

I was intrigued by this one when I saw a video on it. I'm not a huge fan of the art, but generally enjoy city-building. I definately want to get this to the table soon.

I like the art there, and the idea of creating a smuggling ring.

There were a couple of production issues, but the folks at the booth seemed very humble, and are working hard to fix the issues.
