My first GeekList and appropriately one to track some of my Essen interests and opinions. I am going to Essen for 5th time this year. I know what to expect and partly I expect to be overwhelmed by the crowds. SO this year I have done more planning than in years past and have both a plan and a purpose.

Some of these are games I want to buy. Others are ones that interest me from a design point of view. Still others are just things I want to see in action and take pictures for my burgeoning interest in Instagram. (@plaidflannelgeek if anyone is interested.)

I hope that with more of a purpose, I can enjoy the fair more and be less overwhelmed by it. We shall see.

Woohoo, Pleasant Games had a handful of English copies of ATT sent to Essen, so I preordered this and the expansion (which includes solo rules). To be picked up along with Snowblind.

I am interested in the English version of this. I like that it has the feeling of the bigger game in a simpler package. If I'm going to play with my wife, it needs to be English and I hear the production is much better.

Quartermaster General is a super popular game at our game night. I am intrigued by a WWI version with a limited map and extra uses for cards.

Stoked for the revised English version. It feels a bit steep on the price side for a game I will essentially ONLY play solo, but I am still totally interested.

I think the chance I will actually buy a copy is pretty low as I don't expect i would ever get it to the table, but the thing just looks neat. I like the idea of coop and am always interested in new ways to do it as a designer.

Read some great (and a few awful) reviews on this one. The best words have been things around how "Story-ful" it is. Like the look.

Played it for the first time at game night. It is awesome, but I don't think I will ever get it to the family table, so it is probably a pass. It takes such wonderful pictures though, so I'll drop by to look.
