Though much of my time at Spiel this year will be taken up with promoting and running the Pleasant Company Games booth, there are games and publishers I would love to track down. Here follows that list of games that interest me and hope to find at the show.

Advanced King of Tokyo. Yes, please.

Probably pick this up back in SA through our local distributor, SkyCastle Games, but will be cool to play a round or two!
I totally didn't get KOT when it was launched at Essen in 2011 - became my favourite game a year later.

Unlikely to be published, but look forward to find the publishers/distributors , and seeing some Normandie stuff up close. Production value looks strong.

Always wanted this game. Good to hear there is a 2nd edition.

Hope to find a 2nd hand first edition amongst the dealers.

Will grab this if Treefrog still has any stock. Beautiful production, great take on deck-building. Will try ignore the choice of pink as a faction colour.

Not a new release, but a game on our US distributors label, and a well regarded dice roller. And also show support for our US distributor at the show.

File under 2nd hand dealer search.

Update: ordered on eBay and will have Simon bring it over from UK and drag it home. Got the MegaMania expansion too!

Another one for the 2nd hand dealer search. Pretty unlikely find, as it is an American game from 35 years ago - but you never know!

Always on the look-out for old dice-chuckers. There are design-gold in 'dem hills!

The publisher (Portal) was sitting above our company on the BGG Essen Preview list for awhile - that's how I discovered this game. So many games in this world! Looks cool - I'm a fan of dark space station survival horror. Hàve watched Rahdo preview and looks more space station than horror, but hope for a look-see.

Recently acquired the base game - my current favourite 2-player. Was hard to track down in SA, eventually bought 2nd hand through my distributor.
See if this expansion is floating around the Asmodee stand on a winter sale!
