Just a geeklist of games that are going to be at Spiel 2014 (some may already be available in the US but I'm using Spiel 2014 Preview as my guide) that I am interested in and posting my (random) thoughts to them. Feel free to comment

Notes on my gaming habits:

- I generally play games with just 2 players, so games that need at least 3 or don't play well with only 2 are not what I'm looking for

- I generally play medium weight Euros (going by game weight usually a max around 3 to 3.2). I'm fine with easy, quick fillers too

- I generally play games where a single play (with just 2 players) finishes in an hour or so. Slightly longer than that for a first time play is also acceptable

My Not Going To Gen Con 2014 geeklist:

Thoughts:
- Cathala & DOW Gamer's game. Sounds good to me. I do want to look into this one further on how it will play with just 2 since area control/area influence and auction/bidding are listed in the mechanics and sometimes those don't hold up with just 2P

Release at GenCon 2014 (Retailers Sept)

Thoughts:
- Just hit the shelves at my local flgs the other day. I enjoy Trains and have map pack #1 and the 2 GenCon maps but it doesn't get enough table time as I would like
- This one is stand alone and I'll probably pick it up at some point.

- Feld. Sold.
- Ok, it does seem to be more of a medium weight game so that's a good thing as it's more likely to hit the table (my Bora Bora and Trajan are still sealed)

Thoughts:
- I've played a PnP and thought it was fine for what it is but replayability seems very limited. There definitely seemed to be a few cards which are superior but given it's a dice game, bad luck/rolling can offset that. Apparently the expansion helps with this (as not all cards are used in every game if I recall correctly)
