Here are my thoughts on my trip to the spiel 2014 in Essen. I have listed the games we played and those we purchased.

As usual I was travelling with my partner

and we met up with some of our gaming friends during the trip

Essen has become a regular trip ,every two years, but we did not know what to expect this year as the show would be in different halls and was expected to be bigger

You can see my thoughts before we went in this geeklist

We arrived in Essen on the Tuesday and decided to spend our Wednesday relaxing by visiting the Grugapark next to the Messa. This is well worth a few hours of your time if you need a break from gaming

Thursday

After a nightmare u-bahn journey ( too many gamers, too few trains) we got to the fair and joined our friends Craig and Pete for a game of this on the Pegasus Games stand. I found this pretty good with a quite a lot of "take that" and some good strategy. I think Craig bought this later and I have added it to my wants list

After lunch we found a table for this little dice game with a dexterity element. You write the dice score into a grid which sits in the box lid but can only write in squares you touch with dice. We had lots of laughs particularly when people missed the box with the dice. Ultimately fun but not a buy

Next we grabbed a table a free table at the Queen games stand and I was pleasantly surprised by this stock market game by Dirk Henn. It certainly didn't feel like a game as old as it appears to be. I enjoyed this but this would not get to the table enough to justify a purchase

Was pleased to see this just coming in shrink with no box. I think that more companies should be packaging expansions like this to save on cost and useless boxes

Our last preorder was another kickstarted game. This time from Artipia. Our group ( minus me) tried this out on Saturday and it seemed to go down well so, so pleased to pick this one up and great artwork too.

Bruges was another Feld we wanted to get but we needed this in English so we could cope with the text on the cards. I didnt think we would see this in Essen so when Phil noticed it on the Z-man stall we picked this up too

We then went looking for a free table to play Amerigo but no luck, we did spy a table for this free and spent a fun twenty mins paying this fun dice roller. With the noise in the convention halls the CDs were useless and so we relied on the sand timer which added more chaos to the mix.

We then braved the crowds at the Heidelberger stand. Lots of people and lots of games ( of questionable quality) at great prices, on our first pass we picked up this dice game for 5e. Played this a couple of times in the hotel later and it is a fun little game with some meaningful decisions. Looks like a fun one to travel with

Friday was expansion day.

Tzollkin was our favourite game of last year and it was a total no brainer to add some more complication to this already great game.

One again we headed to the Queen games stand and looked to demo Amerigo, all the tables were busy but we saw this game from last year on a nearby stand. It was fun but winning seemed to be dependent on whether you could catch the inevitable pieces falling off.

The halls felt extremely busy and we were struggling to get a table. We spotted this free at the stronghold games booth and tried this out. This is a straight forward auction game where the auctioneer drives the speed of the auction. None of the group liked this one so we moved quickly on to the AEG booth to see if they had space

They did have a table free and we sat down to play a 4p game of love letter, despite the success of this game none of the 4 of us had played previously. Reading from the small rule book reminded me of reading CCG rules in the past but fortunately this was pretty easy to follow and we had a thoroughly enjoyable game. Within a few minutes we had purchased 2 copies, one for me and one for Pete. AEG supplied us both with the largest bag you could imagine for the smallest game I know.

It was about this time that we noticed that some games had started to sell out,in particular there were no English copies of glass road on the Feurland or z-man games stall. The collector's gene kicked in and we decided to pick up some of the new games that we were most interested in. This was high up the list based upon theme and complexity of mechanics and my reading of the rules, so it become the next purchase

Near to Pearl games was the BGG booth and this year they had bought many of the expansions with them, it’s a great way to support the site and we purchased some new tiles from one of favourite games for 5e

I liked this take on worker placement and deck building when I read the rules and thought this would suit our play style. I wanted the small expansion with it, so we needed to buy it from eggertspiele. Even though this was language independent it was nice to see that it was a multi language version. I was pleased that we picked this up as it was sold out early on the Saturday.
