A list of games I'm surely gonna try and play at Essen Spiel 2015.
I am a eurogamer, so do not expect too much ameritrash here. I also like 2 player abstract strategies (GIPF-project for the win!). The last category of games you might encounter here are fast and smart card games.

My previous Spiel lists:

A new game from Phalanx games. Medieval battle full of different scenarios for 2 or 3 people. Tactical rather than strategic. After the Magnates and the Race to the Rhine I'm really curious what the boys will present.

The only GMT P500 I've supported so far and I really hope I will get it by Essen. It's a 3 ppl semicooperative, political game about the end of the World War II and the new world order.
