Going to Essen this year? Want to meet some fellow geeks, maybe some that you have met here on bgg but never in person? You have come to the right place.

Make an entry with the game you are looking forward to the most (you can add more games within you entry, but please stick to one entry per person, as every year). You can write something about that game, if you want, but more importantly, you can add information where you might be met: your hotel, the booth you staff or whatever you want to give away. Obviously, none of us knows exactly where we will be when, but if you know who is coming (and willing to meet with other geeks), you can contact each other directly and work something out.

Hoping to see many of you in October!

Details are still a bit sketchy, but I expect to be present in Essen on Saturday and Sunday. I am most excited for my own new game, "Mission Impractical" which will hopefully be ready for Essen.

I assume I will spend a good bit of my time at my game's booth, but I do plan to walk around and meet a bunch of people, especially since last year I missed the fair for the first time since 2001. But chances are that you will find me at the shared booth of Lautapelit.fi and Vennerød Forlag AS: 3-L116.

Edit: My chances to be there on Friday have greatly improved. With much luck, even on Thursday late in the day. I'll have to see a few days in advance.

Edit: My plans are clearer now. I will head out on Thursday around noon. With a little luck, I will make it to the fair an hour before closing. Friday, Saturday and Sunday I am planning to demo Mission Impractical from 3 pm to about 30 minutes before closing time. Anyone's welcome to stop by and say hi.

Hi!

I'll be at TBD (Taiwan Boardgame Design) booth most of the time meeting with publishers and retailers.
This year my wife and I will bring our 9-month-old son to Essen and this will be his very first Essen Spiel! It will be great if you may come by saying Hi! to my boy (and me of course )!

Btw, we will live in the Atlantic Hotel for convenience. Hopefully I can get to play some new games in the never-sleeping lobby with some of you!
Look forward to meeting you in Essen!

I'm the one that is not Friedemann Friese on the picture.

I will be there Friday almost full day and Saturday morning.
I will be staying at the Ibis next to the train station (in the city centre), so you will see me playing over night there.

This is my 3rd Essen (previously on 2011 and 2012) and it is the first that I will be not on business, so my first "only-for-fun" Essen. Expectations are high!

I will be looking for Economic games and I particularly like games that are not mainstream (my favourite 2015 Essen game was Ponzi Scheme).

If you see me, feel absolutely free to stop me to say hi!

I'll be there, too, Thursday & Friday I'll be at the Sweet November booth (hall 3, O-107) to demo Les Poilus and maybe some other games (just turned out that I'll be there Sat afternoon and Sun morning as well). I'll also drop by the booth of Indie Boards & Cards where they will have at least some copies of my Flash Point expansions, I guess.

My appointment to demo IKI at the Utsuroi/NECO booth has been cancelled, unfortunately.

Looking forward to see some people I have not yet met!

This year I will bring my Friend Annelies again, I sure missed her company last year.

We will be there Thursday only.

We will be there Saturday only, together with Jonah.

Wait, What? No Fragor games this year? a Kicksterter later this year?
Hope to see Gordon and Fraser anyways walking in a relexed fashion through the halls.

Edit October 7th:
I possibly will move my visit to the Saturday as Annelies is not sure she can make it this year. If then I will bring my 11yo son. I will know this weekend.
Edit: October 9th: no Annelies this year buy my son Jonah on the Saturday.

I am stupidly excited for this game, Cottage Garden and The Oracle of Delphi.

I'm staying at the IBIS near Essen HBF and am happy to meet up with people anytime. In Essen from Wed pm to Sunday pm.

I am bouncing about Essen already! My health problems mean I can probably never work a booth at Essen but I will be at the maths trade 12pm handover meeting most days wearing a Yoshi tshirt and waving a little yoshi around above my head.

I'll be working as Hilko's tricycle mechanic and clothespin supplier at 3-L116 for Thu/Fri/Sat, except for occasional short shopping sprees or meetings.

If any designers/publishers/explainers want to swap their new releases for some games (other than Hilko's) from our booth, let me know.
