I didn't know until about a week ago that I'd be at Essen this year, so I'm only just starting to put my list together. At this point, I'm just listing anything that looks vaguely interesting and the culling will happen later...





You can see my previous attempts here:

Essen 2013 (Highlights: Coup: Reformation, Expedition: Northwest Passage, Armadöra)

Essen 2012 (Highlights: Hanabi, BraveRats (back when it was called R), Coup and Dungeon Lords: Festival Season)

Essen 2011 (Highlights: Almost none, as I was still developing my tastes in games. The only real keepers were Friday, Drako and Sewer Pirats)

So, who's up for an election game where no-one quite understands what is required to win?

I think it is a sign of my increasing jadedness with gaming that something as odd and left-field as Swedish Parliament 2014 leaps out at me, though to be fair, Stockholm from last year also sounded pretty intriguing (and had a great box image!). Reading through the rules, I'd decided to pick this up by page 3. Though I still don't understand how to actually check who wins.

Excitement 9/10, though if this doesn't pan out, I suspect it has such a small market that it'll have basically zero re-sell value. Maybe I should be playing this rather than just buying it?

This one is simple; it's by Rikki Tahta who designs wonderfully simple, elegant deep games that demand to be played again and again.

I got the chance to play it before Essen, I'm hoping to get another chance soon, and I'll be picking it up on day 1.

This sounds typically bonkers, but completely captivating at the same time. I suspect this is a boom or bust type of design and it'll either blow me away or be forgotten instantly.

Rumours that it might be not be available at Essen and BoardGameGuru having it stock meant that I bought a copy pre-Essen.

Excitement 7/10 - despite knowing very little about it!

It's a Michael Rieneck design which is a big plus, but Eggertspiele have fallen out of favour with me over these past few years as my gaming tastes have developed. Nothing in the rules for me excited, bit I don't doubt that it's a solid, clever game. I'd like to try this out, I think Sherine well like it.

I probably shouldn't get into a(nother) massively expandable 2 player skirmish game, should I? Especially after just spending ~£1,800 on Heroscape in the last 6 months... Still, this does look pretty. If it plays well, it could be really interesting...

Having read the ruls, I have a few quibbles; the set up is a bit wonky (player 1, player 2, repeat). It should really be 1, 2, 2, 1 etc, but I suspect it is intended that the hidden deployment will be used for most games. I can't really see a downside to spending your first few turns just rolling for shields and special attacks and the special weapons seem oddly variable; I can't really see a great use for the tractor beam for example - it is exceptionally situation specific.

Quibbles aside, if this is quick tactical game with decent replayability then it might be worth a look. The new company/design team makes me wary.

Excitement 5/10 Definitely one to play. Sherine'll hate it though.

I like the idea - take the concept behind Hanabi (well, really Confusion) and make it into a spell-casting take-that game. The spells themselves don't appear deeply exciting or varied, but I wonder if the game itself is just different enough to stand out.

I like the look of this, even if Dungeon Fighter couldn't quite hold a place in my collection.

Bazar seems to be a fairly straightforward area control game with a few interesting decisions and fancy artwork and 'theme' to carry it through.

The rulebook is a bit of a mess for what appears to be a really straightforward game, but I wonder if there might just be enough going on to keep this interesting.

Excitement 5/10.

An interesting rule set; gentle tile laying with a little bidding. On a read through, this looks promising and there are some recognisable BGGers who are saying good things about this. However, the Kickstarter history makes me wary - as does the lowest rating for the game mentioning the need for more development.

Excitement 5/10 Some real promise; one to try. I just hope it won't be another Camelot: The Build

This is an odd little perfect information abstract puzzle-game that seems much more suited for 2 player play than 3. It also comes with 48 solitaire puzzles. Reading the rules, it's fairly clear but I think I need to see this and if the sea monster rules and design is clear enough, I might pick this up (if it's suitably cheap)

A co-operative, deduction game, this sounds neatly inspired by Hanabi, but is story-based instead. It sounds promising, but with 100 stories in the book, I'm also expecting very variable quality...

...And upon reading the rules it seems that the gameplay is much more about remembering everything you've been told rather than clever use of communication. This is essentially Chinese Whispers the board game. Colour me disappointed.

Excitement level 3/10. I'd like to play this still as there's a chance that the way the information from the 'clues' comes together makes the game work but I'm wary.

For this to all work would be a staggering achievement for a first time designer. Reading through the rules it's entirely possible that he has, but I'd be amazed if that is the case.

Combined with being a game that's not entirely my cup of tea any way, and the mass of charts and tracks on the board, I'm going to pass. That's not to say I'd be disappointed if someone else bought it and I got to play it with them.

Excitement 3/10.

I've had a lot of fun with Alban's previous games, but they've shown themselves to be increasingly fragile over time with issues occurring with both Town Centre and with Card City that temper my excitement for Clinic. As such, I'd like to play it, but I won't be rushing out to pick it up.

I get the feeling it's also sold out which helps make the decision for me.
