Since everyone's doing this and since it makes for a nice online archive, I will publish a Geeklist with the things I'm planning on taking home from Spiel 2015 in Essen.

I have added some short information on why I want to buy these items. This list is in no way exhaustive though, since in the past three years I've always returned home with more stuff than I planned on buying. I'm open to be surprised by the fun stuff at the fair.

1. Board Game: 7 Wonders Duel [Average Rating:8.15 Overall Rank:13]

I really like 7 Wonders. And even though the two-player rules for that game work well enough, it's more than likely that a dedicated two-player version of the game works even better.

It would be great if I could play a demo at the Repos Productions booth.

EDIT: I preordered this game to get the metal conflict pawn, extra wonder card and ex ludis as preorder rewards. After going through the rulebook online, I'm happy to be adding this game to my collection.

I'm a sucker for Richard Borg's Commands & Colors system. And combining it with WW I makes this a game I watch with interest. If I get this game, I will have to let go of another C&C title - most likely Battle Cry: 150th Civil War Anniversary Edition - as I do own more of them than I've got a chance to play these days...

I'm not really sure whether I'll buy this at Essen, or at my FLGS Demo-Spel. It will depend on the potential pre-order goodies/difference in price.

But I'll definitely get this. I really like Pandemic and I really like the Legacy system from Risk Legacy. The only thing that makes me doubtful is that it sounds like the game becomes sort of unplayable after 12 to 24 plays. Still, that's about the amount of plays I've gotten out of my copy of Pandemic...

This game is so much fun. Even though my friend Jorn (Moonhawk) owns a copy, I can no longer keep myself from trying to acquire my own copy. I've borrowed his, and hope I find the time to try it out with Amber. The only thing that could keep me from buying this, if is he dislikes the game.

I think the small promo/tile expansions for Carcassonne are good value for money. They're quite cheap, but add variation without too much extra rules explanation.

Hopefully I'll find this at the Hans im Glück booth.

The only map/campaign pack I still need for my Tannhäuser collection. Perhaps one of the many shops at Essen still has a copy lying around. Noting wrong with hoping, right?

If the price is right, I might pick up an extra pack at the Heidelberger booth. Just to have the extra mini's for the skirmish game.

I do own Takenoko, but I adore the Collector's Edition (which was in stock at last year's Essen). Whether or not I can keep myself from taking home the overproduced Collector's Edition will depend on my restraint on 9 October...

I keep finding stuff I didn't know I needed until I saw it in The Essen 2015 no-shipping auction list. Post your own items for sale!...
This seems like an interesting Carcassonne variant (better than Carcassonne: South Seas, and hopefully as good as Carcassonne: Gold Rush). Let's hope I have a winning bid on this one.

Stratego is a game dear to my heart, as I played it since I was 5 years old. And I really like Star Wars. So this is a winning combination. Let's hope I'll win the auction!

The concept of combining the different modules into a variety of games has me intrigued. And the designer is talented enough to pull it off. The big BUT is that I'm not sure if and how often I'd get a chance to play this game...
