I plan on going to Spiel again this year, and it can be helpful to make a list of the games I am interested in. So I'll be doing that here on BGG - I might even get some useful comments from other users.

I will be ordering the games from most interesting to least interesting (but still interesting enough to be on this list at all) and will be re-evaluating the order from time to time. This will remain a work in progress probably until the doors of Spiel open.

Backed it on Kickstarter and will be picking it up in Essen.

Looks somewhat like a more complex (and dice-less) Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, but better suited for single sessions (no need to play a whole campaign).

German version should be released by then, and since all the other Dominion I own is also in German I guess it's best to get the new one in German as well.

I'm not into baseball, but this looks like a fun game. Some very clever ideas. Hopefully it's available at Spiel.

Kramer & Kiesling! I can't help being interested.
What I've read so far sounds good, but I need to play the game to tell if it really will be great or just good. (Their latest games were all good, but fell short of greatness IMO.)

The whole idea behind this game, or rather collection of games, is fantastically daring. That alone makes it worth a look.

Whether the actual games are really fun to play remains to be seen. I will admit to being sceptical about that, but I hope I can give it a try (which will be hard, the 2F Games booth is usually overcrowded).

Forget the mythical 2-hour civilization game, here is a 15 minute civilization mini-game. Just for two players, which is a drawback, but I'd like to try anyway.

This is an interesting theme, and the game description reminds me of games like Colosseum, one of my favourite games. Will this bring a cool new twist on the 'build show' idea or will it feel like a weaker version of my favourite? Time will tell.

A complex economic game, that sounds good. But other games by this designer, Alexander Pfister, haven't blown me away so I remain cautious for now.

When Risk Legacy was announced, I found the concept extremely fascinating, but... it was still Risk.
Now they have given Pandemic the Legacy treatment. This might be a better fit for my gaming tastes.

A re-implementation of the excellent König von Siam. Not much else is currently known.
I'm waiting for more info on any differences between this game and its predecessor - who knows, I might prefer the old game.

Already released, so not sure if I should include it here. I like its predecessor Witch's Brew, but don't own it. It might be a good game to play with my family or with non-gamers, although for that audience I'd prefer a Dutch version. No news on such a thing yet, although I think the chance has increased now that the game has won a major prize.

Interesting theme, but looks pretty complex. Designer and publisher unknown to me.

Watched a video and read the rules - doesn't seem very complex anymore (I was afraid after seeing cards with a bunch of icons). Hope to try it, could be my kind of game.

Hmmm, a game about dragon breeding? That's cool! Artwork looks really nice too.
Too bad it's yet another worker placement though. Try before buy.

Yes, BGG contests work to give your game exposure!

I'd never heard of this before, but now that I have I will look for it at Spiel. It's a drafting game with a dark theme, and is presented as having simple rules but deep strategy.
Will it be available in Europe? And if so, where should I look?

Of course, I won't look for the game if I win the current BGG contest. And since I did NOT win any of the previous 200 or 300 BGG contests I entered, it is almost a given that I win this one, right? RIGHT?

CV was cute, but I found the gameplay a bit lacking - the unfolding life stories were very funny though. Interested to see how they apply the same concept to tribes/nations, and maybe the gameplay is more to my liking as well.

This will be a first, this year I will also attempt to sell some games instead of trading them.

Currently I've put up for auction: Balmy Balloonists, Way Out West, Space Bastards and Titicaca.

A second expansion for what is, in my opinion, one of the best games of the last couple of years. It includes a new double-sided map, a new resource type and some new cards.
Concordia sees enough play that an expansion would also be played a lot. On the other hand, I enjoy the base game so much that I don't really need this (I didn't pick up the first expansion for the same reason and I don't miss it).

And another Kramer/Kiesling games comes out of nowhere. Publisher HABA is known for excellent children's games with great production value, and this year they are also moving into the market for family games.
Too bad the name is so bland/boring, and we'll have to wait and see how complex the game will be, but I'll be keeping an eye on it for sure.

The preview on Opinionated Gamers has made me interested in this.
Nice theme, the gameplay sounds good, and exactly 14 actions per game*, that is a recipe for success. One of the designers is also half of the team behind Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar which is a recent favourite of mine.

*=In The Princes of Florence, my favourite game ever, you have exactly 14 actions per game.
