I am planning to make a monthly list of games that were new to me that particular month. In a year's time, I will see whether I still play them or not. and what happened to them.

Slightly faster version and less fiddly version of the card game. Yet, I prefer the card game anyway. And that hasn't seen any plays in years anymore either. Didn't buy. Probably won't be playing this again, although I would not mind playing it at all if someone would suggest it.

I heard a lot about this game, after Essen 2012. Was sold out and finally got a reprint at Essen 2013.
This one is going to be played a lot. One person in my gaming group seems to be obsessed with this one

First game I played at Essen. Fun little game with a decent amount of player interaction. Will probably be played a couple of times more.

Played at Essen 2013. Wasn't interesting enough to buy. Probably will never see this game on the table again.

Played at Essen 2013. Set collection with special abilities. Not a bad game, but for me not something that stood out in the massive sea of over 400 new games either. Didn't buy. Wouldn't mind playing it again though, if it's being suggested. Don't forsee that happening, in my gaming circle.

Heavy theme, game flows well, and I can see the appeal. Not a game for me though. Also, I think the playing time of 1 hour on the box is a little optimistic. My first play, including rules explained by the designer, took close to 3 hours. Will not play this again.

Played at Essen 2013. Did not buy. Didn't like the game much and I will have to be convinced to play this again.

Smash Up with an expansion. I like the game, and the expansion gives some more variety and choice. Will probably be played a couple of more times during the year. Selling my copy, since a gaming buddy has a copy (+ expansion).

Very brainy puzzle game under time pressure. Not sure whether I like it. I would like to play it a couple of more times before my final judgement, but my first reaction is: "I prefer Space Alert over this". Not planning to buy it myself, so it would have to be put on the table by someone else.

For me this was the surprise of Essen 2013. Not even a week in my possession, and already played a few times.
A very nice, sleek dungeon crawler with some innovative elements. Easy rules. I see this one being played a couple of times more.

Played at Essen 2013. Light version of Roborally, without the chaos. A lot of people will like it BECAUSE it has less chaos. Me, personally, I loved the chaos in Roborally. So I would not pick this one over Roborally. Wouldn't mind joining in on a game of this however.

Definitely better than the first one in this series. Gaming buddy bought it, as a fan of Terry Pratchett. I can see this coming to the table once or twice, next year.

Light, fun game. Will probably hit the table a couple of times more, as quick warm up, or to end the gaming evening.
