This will be the third year I'll attend Essen/SPIEL and second year my girlfriend will be along. We will be traveling together with our local awesome Bastard Cafe on their special Bastard Tours programme.

This geeklist is what I will buy and consider and what my girlfriend will be buying and considering. I have also promised to bring home games for my two gaming friends Christian and Kim. Please decide what you want!


I love euroish games, which will be showing on this list.
I'll list my girlfriend's favourite games from Essen 2015 to show you what she likes:

1. T.I.M.E Stories
2. Pandemic Legacy
3. Codenames
4. Grand Austria Hotel
5. 7 Wonders: Duel
6. Karuba

My number ONE game for Essen 2016!
I'm the biggest Uwe Fanboi. Which you'll see on the next two items also.
- Sadly I don't have a Uwe poster on my bedroom wall yet! :'( - Anyway I guess my girlfriend isn't so sad about that...

+ UWE! :O
+ Tetris elements. Looove his Patchwork.
+ Worker Placement.
+ Occupation cards; which hopefully will be a plus to replayability.
+ Viking Theme. Their view on the viking era and how they implemented in the game seems to have hit the exactly right spot. Their research on the subject is outstanding. Just look at the almanac!
+ The Almanac! So much viking goodness! I haven't downloaded the almanac yet, because I want to read the printed version.

- Too sandboxy for my taste?
- Seems quite fiddleish.
- Setup time. But thank you so much for the trays!
- No Klemens Franz. :'( Klemens + Uwe is a killer combo! I love their work! At least Dennis Lohausen also does a marvelous job.
- EDIT: The price for the English version is (could be) terrible.
Feuerland sells the German version for 60€, which is fine because of the huge amount of components in the box. While Z Man Games sells the English version for about 85-90€. yuk Sad to see such a huge difference...

More Uwe Goodness!
I haven't read the rules, only read a few comments and seen German preview video, which I didn't understand much of. But it is Uwe you know...
This could be a perfect match for me and my girlfriend.

+ UWE.
+ Tetris tile laying aspect. Looove his Patchwork.
+ 60 minutes.

- I don't have any negatives yet, because I don't know much about the actual gameplay.
- Please give me more infos!

Once again it's Uwe, what's else to like?
I actually haven't played the original Bohnanza yet, but when it's a small card game then I'll pick it up. I guess/hope it isn't as bad as last years Hengist!

+ 2 Players only.
+ The German speaking people commenting this preview here, seems to be looking forward to the game: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/video/108089/bohnanza-das-duel...

Last year I went early to the Österreichisches Spiele Museum e.V. booth and picked up Royal Goods (later renamed to Oh My Goods! ) for only 7€!
I personally didn't think it was THAT good of a game, but the Spiele Museum was also first mover on publishing Royal Port first.

I'll surely pick this game up on Thursday.

+ Only 7€!
+ The artist is Klemens Franz! Hooray! I love his artwork.
- I don't know anything about the gameplay yet. But C'est la vie.

Also a must buy!
Atm. I've 'only' played the Duel base game 12 times, but I've enjoyed every play. More importantly my girlfriend has also played the base game with her friends and they also liked it.

+ The Duel base game is a hit. This cannot go wrong.
- 25€ for an expansion? Sigh... Boardgames are getting more and more expensive...

EDIT: I preordered this expansion from Repos website. Their preorder price is 19€ and you also get the Statue of Liberty promo.

I'm looking forward to try this picturesque way of playing the game.
I haven't tried the Dixit variant, but I quess my brain will like the picture version better than the word version. But... I'm not sure my teammates will.

+ 15€ Seems a fair price.
+ I love the simple artwork style they have chosen for the pictures.

EDIT: I've now preordered the game from CGE's webpage. 15€ - No extra stuff or promos included.

My gaming comfort zone is euro games. Especially the ones, which works well with two people. But staying at the CGE booth I'll also pick up this EURO inspired first person shooter.

I guess it could either be a hit or a miss, but I know some guys who would looove to trash talk and shoot each other the euroish way!



EDIT: I've now preordered the game from CGE's webpage. 50€ - No extra stuff or promos included.

Oracle of Delphi I would like to try/buy, because it looks like it got potential.

+ Not pointsalady, but first to complete x number goals.
- Pick up and deliver... YUCK! I'm not very keen on that mechanism in games...

EDIT: I wrote to Stefano Bassi from Cranio Creations asking him if this game would make it to Essen this year. The answer is Cranio Creations still wants to fine tune the game, which is fine, but then I have to wait another year! cry

My girlfriend loooves Dungeon Fighter and we have played it like +40 times now. But I really don't want to play it anymore! :'-(
She has told me, that playing Dungeon Fighter reminds her of when she as a teenager with a friend played computer games or consol games and they shifted between playing and cheering on each other.

This coop looks like a game who can take Dungeon Fighters position in our house hold! My fingers are crossed!

EDIT: Only 300 English copies will make it to Essen this year: https://boardgamegeek.com/article/23645944#23645944
Which means I likely won't get it.


I've read the intro game pdf, and I would like to like the game, but I'm not completely sold...

+ Klemens Franz Artwork! Take a look at this tread : https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1629056/all-sorts-stuff...
+ No military aspect in the game.
+ I like the idea of the storage mechanism. You don't have storage for endless resources, but need to use them before you have room for new stuff.
+ 'Scenario' based. You'll be able to chose the length of the game.

- Too sandboxy?
- Setup time, could be a killer. :/

On my girlfriend's top list of games from last years Essen Grand Austria Hotel is definitely in top 5.
She loves how the theme and game mechanisms fits totally together in that game.

...The theme in this game is like the opposite for her I bet.

I'll still have my eyes out for this game, because of the designers earlier games and because of KLEMENS FRANZ! All hail Klemens!


EDIT: Cranio Creations will bring a limited amount of English copies to
Essen. I wrote to Stefano Bassi and preordered the game. - 50€

Last year I didn't buy Mombasa at Essen, because I speculated it was a bit too hard/heavy. But eventually later I HAD to buy it, which I haven't repented. The card programming aspect is wonderful!
Now back to GWT. Should I also pass on Great Western Train from the same hot Designer?

I guess it was on Twitter I read that Alexander wrote GWT is on the same weight level as Mombasa.
I need to find out about the actual game play before I decide...
EDIT: I found this overview here, which is a great plus: http://www.brettspiel-news.de/index.php/brettspieltest/230-p...

I wasn't too keen on last years TtR UK+Pennsylvania expansion, but my girlfriend will definitely be buying this new TtR standalone game.
Our favourite maps are India and Nordic Countries because they are very good for two people.
At least this map will bring joy to my girlfriends gaming group. They all LOVE TtR.

- Looks like the playing time could be a bit high, compared to the comments I've read.
- Is it any good with two people only?

EDIT: The game is now being sold at Danish webshops. Depending on the price at Essen, it could be a good idea to wait and buy the game later.

Kanagawa is, in the hands of Iello, extremely well produced.

Looking at the review Mr. Gameboygeek has put up, it looks quite interesting: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/video/109123/kanagawa/game-boy...

+ Press your luck.
- I'm afraid it isn't too well for a two player game... - I'll probably buy it anyway.

I'm not that fond of Friedemann Friese's games, but this card game could be a hit with my girlfriend, I'm just not sure how it will work with two though... FF's games doesn't fit that player number well in my experience.

But this preview tells quite good things about the game:

This game is part of the two player series from Lookout Spiele. Therefore I'm interested in picking it up. Still it isn't a must buy, but it looks like a quite fine filler two player game.

Underneath will be the games my girlfriend wants to buy.
She wants to have a look at the Spiel 2016 preview list, but first around the 17. September. When she decides which games to buy, I'll add them to this geeklist.

If we have any common wishes, I'll write here which games we both wants to buy:

- Codenames: Pictures
- Ticket to Ride: Rails and Sails

Under this item is my 'I really don't know list... I'm probably not going to buy any of them.

At the moment the list consists of these games:
Colony - Some kind of dice placement/pool building? I read some comments about too much downtime... :/
Inis - Mostly because of the hype train I put the game here. I haven't investigated anything about it yet.
Kodama: Wonderful artwork, but is the gameplay enough? Maybe my girlfriend wants to buy it.
Bios: Genesis - I looove the theme! It's very exciting! But I'm not that fond of Phil Eklund. I know some people, who surely will pick it up anyway. I'll get the chance to play it after Essen.

Kim's first pick
He'd backed the game on Kickstarter with delivery at Essen.

Kim is very clever. I need a wheelbarrow to transport this game and all the extra stretch goals home to him! surprise

I'm looking forward to play this game inspired by Among the Stars. The theme suits my taste better, than in Among the Sci Fi.

This game could easily be The Game of the Year , if you look at all the comments from people who's already played the game.

Kim's second pick

Phil Eklund with a coop! wow Very interesting to see how this game works. And as I earlier stated, this theme is perfect for me; as my job is a lab. technician working with viruses.


I've preordered the game from Sierra Madre Games.
Payed with paypal: 29€ ~ 226kr

Matagot is the KING of the genre: Dudes on a map, with playing time under 2 hours. Especially Kemet is fantastic.

I'm looking forward to play this game together with some psychedelic mushrooms. Just look at that artwork!


Unfortunately we don't know yet, what the Essen price will be. Maybe Christian will preorder the game elsewhere, if the Essen price isn't that good.
