This is really my evaluate, and consider buying list.

Essen 2014 captures pre- and post- Essen 2014 releases too.

I'll provide a sentence or two of context. Comments are welcome.

UPDATE 07/15/14: I've started to order based on my level of interest. 1 being the most interesting to me and the highest number being of interest but the least.

This will be updated when life allows.

I'm not a war game fan. But, this is like El Grande on steroids -- something I would enjoy for sure. It is the fourth in the COIN series. Asymmetric goals for each player, area control, card-driven. Check it out. The other three are terrific and include Andean Abyss, Cuba Libre and A Distant Plain.

ORDERED via P-500 -- AND RECEIVED!

Love 51st State, The New Era and Winter. Great gameplay, and interesting artwork that draws me into wanting to know more about the story. More expansions? Yeah!

A fan of Knizia and impressed with FFG card game quality. It's out and I await more reviews before pickup.

PURCHASED AND PLAYED

Still getting a feel for the mechanics. It has promise.

I have the 999 Games version, but I really am interested in the Stronghold / White Goblin Games version. Apparently, this features a double-sided game board, almost 200 wooden pieces, and updated gameplay, as well as rules and components never before published for this game.
