I did not care for this. Although some of the mechanisms were cool, I didn't like how almost any move I made could be undone by almost any other player at any time.

I finally played this at the last moment in the Z-man booth. I enjoyed it very much, even though I managed to end up dead last (after what I thought was a good start).

I didn't score my 18 point Job card, and lost by 16 points. Scoring that 18 pointer is pretty tough, especially when you're not sure what you're doing!

Got this and Cypher for 10 Euro at AEG's booth. Played in the airport with Mike, split 1 game apiece. I think it's pretty cool, would like to try multiplayer.

I'm investigating some unpublished games by the same designers, so I'm glad to see that this didn't suck!

Got this and Empire Engine for 10 Euro at AEG's booth. I know the designer, and played an early prototype. Interested to see how it turned out in the end.

Although I may have lost it, I didn't see it in my luggage when I unpacked. It's gotta be in there somewhere!

I played a couple of TMG submissions with Michael and Mischa. One of them will be a new Dungeon Roll companion product at GenCon 2015. The other may or may not be a TMG product, we will have to see about a few things first.

I also played a few games of a prototype by Robin Lees, a Twitter follower who I met in Germany.

I brought home a prototype from the designers of Empire Engine to evaluate for TMG, and one of those designers (with another co-designer) will likely be submitting another game after some changes are made (I had seen it at GenCon and we met and talked about it at Essen as well).

I think this is sort of like a party game or werewolf style game. I met a nice couple from Florida in Essen who said they liked it a lot. I will give it a shot. It's likely not going to be my new favorite game or anything, but hopefully it'll be fun.

I haven't played 7 Wonders in a while, time to bust it out.

I was going to ask Antoine Bauza to sign it, but I decided to play it cool and act more like a friend than a fanboy. Was that dumb?

Description reminds me of Falling, but I doubt it's similar.

Small game, Scott Almes, who knows - might be tiny, but epic!

I got a prototype copy of this from the designer (or was it the publisher?) - I'm interested to try it out.
