I wanted to like this, and I still hope I will, and maybe it was just the experience at the table that put me off.. e.g. bad rules explanation, late in the day on Saturday, and only a few rounds and much conversation at the table going on all in german and i did not follow as the only none German speaker...

Got to play on the giant version! was fun but it is a gimmick game, but still entertaining but almost more of an activity then an actual game. but cant wait to play it with my sons when they are a few years older.

One of the highlights of the con, really enjoy this game. Love the fact that you can always use an action no matter if someone else used it or not, of course its going to cost you.. Really good game will hopefully play it quite soon again.

Dice game, it does use the dice in some interesting ways and components are nice. but even though we played it and got into the theme quite a bit it still did not wow me, and its not in the top 5 of essen.

Really interesting area control game, much more to it then you would think initially. though gets quite swinging as a 5 player game but still i would recommend this game to anyone looking to explore a new area control game. and plays quite quickly. (1h or so with 5 players)

cool theme, and a few things you need to wrap your head around, e.g. which order different things happens.. so your first couple of games are going to be quite painful..

I would play it again, but i wont be buying it.

Ascension in general, I really do like this game, and I want to buy it, but in the end I just dont see it getting played, so i'm saving my money waiting for the android version to get released then I will get in on some online gaming of this instead.

Another mining game! and I just say this one was really cool as well. The board and the interaction between players made this really worth it. Good game would play this again.

The game looks a lot more thematic then it really is, its an abstract pattern recognition game, and if you see it like that with a light fantasy theme sprinkled on top its quite awesome! but really it has not much more theme then chess does..

But the whole abstract pattern making is really cool and I enjoyed it, probably in my top 5 of games.

This game, i sat in a few rounds with the designer, and its really cool, building your family tree, i bought it mostly to play with my wife since she just loves the whole theme! raising children and matching them with good partners that will enhance your prestige in society.. not sure I will play it much with my gamer friends but maybe..

Sledge racing, in a gorgeous board with awesome components!

and game play is not bad either! quite a lot of fun racing your ledge around, and the mechanics on how you control your sledge is really cool!

will want to play this one soon again! and game that involved dogs is always a plus.

This was pretty cool, steam mechs fighting each other, different pilots with different skills, asymmetrical decks, and possibility to build your own deck.. but one thing i have a big problem, playing stuff face down and you are suppose to remember what you put down.. i'm horrible at this so this put me off quite a bit..

good dice rolling game, but it something to play with gamers, so i was between this one and qwixx but qwixx i can play with anyone, none-gamers as well.. and with gamers we have some many other games anyway.. so even though blueprints is a good game its just not something i would buy..

This game was really nice, a tile laying game that is really clever. I was considering buying it but in the end didn't.. but it will remain on my list of possible future buys.

Quite the heavy weight. Some interesting concepts, building rails without a map, everything taking place on your own little player board. I would give it a go if someone suggested it, but not in my top 5..

Playing with the expansion. This is really the type of game i do like, its a card game, its drafting, and its about building combos. Though it wasn't quite a strong the combo building as i had hoped, though that could be just first play problems. But it is hard to get this type of game to the table with my game group... but it was fun, i liked it.. like it a lot more then 7 wonders, since many people call it 7 wonders in space but I dont really see that much in-common except for the drafting..

This was a bit of a surprise, i did not really expect to like this, i tend to not like co-op games but this was just the right amount of light, and the art was really nice. good game, if a bit on the light side but that is what make it good in my book.
