After far too many years of watching everyone else go to Essen I will finally be there. As it seems that part of the tradition is having a geek list I thought I should do one.

It's divided into three parts firstly my pre-orders, then games I will probably buy and finally games I might buy after a better look.

in Ted I trust. Some of my favourite games of the last few years are Suburbia, Castles of Mad King Ludwig and Favor of the Pharaoh. So this was pretty much automatic. Funny thing is though that much as I love Bezier's big box games I have absolutely zero interest in their small Ultimate etc etc games.

So many people raved about Ponzi Scheme last year and I have never even seen a copy. This years offering from the same company looked very interesting so I ordered a copy.

While I was looking at the Flow of History I saw this from the same publisher and thought might as well. I have actually ordered the copy that includes the base game as well.

Grand Austria Hotel was my favourite game of 2015 so this seemed like a bit of a no brainer. Pre-ordered.

A friend has got a kickstarter copy so I have already seen, though not managed to play this. I have pre-ordered though not sure if I should get the expansions, though I probably will.

Deus was one of my favourite games from 2014 so I must have this. Not pre-ordered but should be plenty of copies at the show

Well I have all the other Legendary games (I know it's not the same), but looks interesting and is fairly cheap.

I like racing games but I don't have any cycling games. A lot of my friends love Leader 1: Hell of the North, but I have issues with both components and design choices which stop me from loving it.

I am playing this tonight, so that will help me decide if I should get it.

Always enjoy a movie making theme. This time it's in a card game and you can never have enough card games.

I always like an unusual theme and this looks like it will sit comfortably with Rococo and Legacy: The Testament of Duke de Crecy as slightly odd but interesting themes.
