Goodday fellow geeks,

just to keep track of my list for Essen 2014, and to exchange thoughts on games, I decided to create my first GeekList ever. Ever.

This list is devided into two parts:
- The first is about the new Releases at Essen 2014. I also stated one of three Options
~ MUST BUY: Shut up and take my money!
~ TRY BEFORE BUY: Not sure about spending money. Demo and/or closer look.
~ CHECKIN' OUT: Most likely won't end up in my basket at Essen, but might.

- The second part is about "older games" which I feel the Need to have in my collection

So, feel free to comment on the games, and enjoy my list!

Looks like a cardgame version of an iOS game I enjoy much. Depending on the price tag, this is going to end up in my collection or not.

The world of Xidit in Seasons blew my mind. The artwork is stunning, and the game mechanics are so enjoyable.

I had a look on the different review videos, and LoX has the same look. I like it. Programming is not my favorite mechanism, but I will give this one a look or two.

So I guess pirates are the new zombies, since every fifth game seems to be with this theme. I don't mind though. A filler in the Yathzee-style. Definitly one to try!

No, I am not sure about that. Differs KoNY enough from KoT? Do the improvments justify to buy it? Guess I have to check it out.
