Games looking out for at Essen 2016.

(All games here may not be released at Essen, they can be released before, but I will probably not see them or play them before Essen, or released after, but maybe showed as demo.)

Have played this now (the p&p version) and I'm disappointed. I rather play Star Realms.

They were at Spiel 2015 without a product, just a pnp, and did promote the kickstarter. Sure they will bring the final product this year. I have kickstarted this. Maybe will buy an expansion or two in Essen.

From Space Cowboys that gave us the superb game Elysium last year. And design by Martin Wallace made this middle-heavy euro. Fun to play.

Big title from Stronghold Games. Played demo of it at Spiel 2015 and played it again just a few days ago. It is a really good game. It is growing on me. I give it 9 out of 10.

Good game, one of my favorite heavy euros ever. Even if there is an aggresive mechanism (you can take over another players building by using 4 AP), an agressive role (mob, roll the D4, and take away so many houses in one block) and agressive cards (riots, eg. take away houses anywhere in one district).

Grym theming i spelet. Och en hel del historiskt fluff (typ som i The Underground Railroad). Också begränsat antal rundor, 3 stycken. Och i varje runda spelar man 5 kort. Card driven, en mekanik jag gillar, och där man, likt TS och andra, väljer att använda AP:t på kortet eller eventet. För AP kan man muta in tomt, bygga hus, affär, fabrik (om det är fabrikstomt), eller en manson. Varje runda är som en era, och för varje era blandar man in nya kort (det görs alltså 2 gånger). Korten i era 3 (de röda korten) är så awesome. 9 out of 10.
