List of game titles we picked up from our 2nd Essen trip.

We've also shipped back a number of new Essen releases for preorder by our customers. Will indicate those in this list. There are also a number of games we would have wanted to pick up eg Nations, Rokoko, Amerigo, Via Appia but since we'll be stocking those from the US soon, we decided not to pull them from Essen.

We've posted picture highlights at our facebook page. Last year (2012) we took over 1,500+ pictures from Spiel 2012. This year we had less photos but nevertheless it was another smashing trip for us!

Check out all last year's 1500 pics here

Zman's booth was not yet swarmed when we arrived so a quick deal to pick up this and Glass Road (since we needed the English version). Played this on Day One evening (together with Coal Baron) and thought it'll need another play to appreciate it's depth. Turns out this ended as the Top Game in Fairplay's ranking!

The ONE singular mission we dare not fail on Day One! A queue was already forming at the Deinko booth, and the games / publisher were not there yet. People were edgy... finally the games arrived and all 50 copies were swarmed over in less than 30 minutes!

We got ours.. got the designers to sign our copy, took a group pic, and also took the pic of the chap who got the (supposedly) last copy. We then start our Essen 2013 journey proper... #euphoric

Since the Collector Edition (wooden) edition for this is also limited, we picked this up first thing on Day One. Played it on the same evening. Lighter than Russian Railroads but a good medium pickup-n-deliver game.

For Malaysian gamers, we have this on our Essen Preorder list.

With only 150 copies of EN version of 2F-Spiele's latest maps for Power Grid, happy we managed to get one. One of the helpers at the booth gave me a rather detail explanation how the two maps were designed and different.

for our customers, this will be available soon thru our normal channel from Rio Grande.

Last year's Essen releases but "disappeared" into the huge noises made by recent new games. Got this at What's Your Game booth but didn't pick up Madeira since I already have that on preorder (shipping).

Did not pick this up from Essen but instead pre-ordered this with direct shipping. Now I wonder how long it would take to reach me?

Bought the French edition (this game is aka COUP) instead of COUP since we'll be able to get our hands on the new rethemed Resistance: Coup (from Indie Boards) easily thru our normal distribution channel. I think we'll end up with both versions later.

Differences between COMPLOTS and COUP

We'd the earlier Japanese ed of this game which is very popular with waiyan's boardgamekids. We saw a magnetic travel edition and bought it so that we can play during our travels.

We should have also bought the other ver from Ferti - Yokai no Mori - available at the Fair

Looks similar to Cafe International but plays with more depth. Played it on the 2nd day. Good light-medium game for four.

We have this available for Essen Preorder from our webstore.
