It's that time of year again, where we start looking forward to Essen, planning and organising all the information we can get our hands on and forming opinions or even hopes about the games coming out.

As with last year, I'm going to be keeping a running track of my thought process for each game, I'll also include regular updates when I find rulebooks or articles of interest about the game. If I miss anything please let me know and I'll include it.

This is a placeholder to split out the games that I've already preordered and I will be picking up at the show, or will be getting independently but I still think deserves the publicity.

(@05-09) Watched the Rahdo run through and this looks pretty awesome. I like games of imperfect information so this looks like it could be a keeper.
(@18-09) I decided that given there are so few copies coming, I'd have to nab one and the preorder made that easy.

(@07-09) This is currently a placeholder for the Orleans: Invasion expansion which is shaping up to be one of the most exciting expansions yet revealed. Orleans has received a lot of play in the last year. This is expansion is going to make it even better. 6 scenarios are included, the most exciting is the co-op scenario repelling invaders and shoring up defences, but there are also 3 solo, 1 2P and a general goodstuff expansion.
(@07-09) Mentioned this to my wife and she was like "OMFG must haz". Will be preordering later today.
(@11-09) I've read through the rules. This looks stellar. Will be coming home with this for sure, along with an upgrade kit.
(@23-09) A more detailed description of the rules and my thoughts on the game can be found here in this blog post

(@04-09) My wife read the rules and decided that she wanted it. Less to play ourselves, but more because she thought it would make an excellent game to play with children (which we don't yet have, but she likes to plan ahead).

(@04-09) I read part of the rules, realised it was basically an RPG about being a teenage girl, passed the rules to my wife to see if she thought it was awesome or insulting (a very fine line when dealing with anime style games). This one got the squeak of approval.

(@20-08) Based on a classic videogame. I always pay attention to a Lautepelit game. I want to try it, but it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.
(@18-09) I read through the rules for this yesterday and it looks like a lot of fun. The random events, floating goods markets and cool production rules looks like this is a keeper. Given the preorder discount of 20 euros, I'm probably picking this up.

(@29-09) From the moment this got added to the Spiel Geeklist I knew that I needed to own this. My wife told me that I was categorically not allowed to spend that much on a game I play once a year, so with the help of 5 fantastic friends (you know who you are) we are splitting the cost of this bad boy to make it just over £20 a head. Hot diggity. This will be the stuff of legends.

(@27-05) I love pandemic, and this looks special. Fascinated to see the result.
(@16-09) Watched the Miami Dice review of this last night and I remain convinced. Given Pandemic is Zee's favourite game or near enough I take his opinion seriously. His opinion, all of the good stuff from Pandemic is retained, but it adds a sense of attachment and realism that deepens your connection with the game (paraphrased, but these comments are directionally correct). I'll be picking up a copy for my sister as well as she loves pandemic.

(@17-08) Just read a great review here that has really interested the two of us. The game is basically Bruges but with more murder, that made my wife immediately pay attention. I want to read the rules, but she was asking if we could preorder it already. High chance this is coming home with us.
(@26-08) Updated with price. For 25 I'll definitely be taking a punt on this. High chance of liking, low cost if wrong. Eric martin has done a blog on it which I haven't read yet, but should be worth a peek if you haven't yet.
(@26-08) Just read Eric Marin's blog entry and this looks awesome. The mechanics look clever and interesting. This is almost certainly coming home with us. Pearl rarely have any demo space so just going to pull the trigger.

(@26-08) Added rulebook. Will report back with conclusions.
(@01-09) Not fully read the rules yet, but I've read this excellent explanation from Richard Breese and I'm sold. It looks like it takes some of the concepts of Lewis and Clarke and improves it so that you don't have players effectively eliminated (more tracks to race on, point scoring and not just first past the post). It's got a lot in common with RftG, but with a board and a greater sense of scale. Given RftG is one of my favourite games, having something similar but sufficiently differentiated to be worth owning is a huge plus.
(@04-09) Read the rules this evening, but that didn't add much to what Richard had already confirmed in his geeklist. This is a must have.
(@23-09) A more detailed description of the rules and my thoughts on the game can be found here in this blog post
