Last year HilkMan did this "mule list". thumbsup

I think this is a great Idea, that shouldn´t lack this year.

You need anything from Essen, but can´t go yourself?
OR:
Going to Essen, but need a game from an exotic country, such as, anywhere outside Germany?
JUST: Post in this list and hope for a friendly geek to help you out!
caravan


This was reasonably successful in the last three years (see Essen 2014 mule list and Essen 2015 mule list and Essen 2016 mule list), so here comes this year's list.

Here's how it works: If you need an Essen mule - either someone who brings a game to Essen or someone who picks up a game for you there - add an entry with the name of the game(s) here. You are welcome to offer any kind of incentive or not. If you are willing to serve as an Essen mule, answer the request that seems doable for you.

If you create a request/post in here, Please SUBSCRIBE TO THE LISTING to keep informed...


I know not every request can be successful. You can post requests for anything, but it might be wise to remember that small items have a much better chance to be picked up for you.

Please don't use this list for general searches for games - it is aimed at people who know where to buy something, but not of a way to get it to them.


Have a great time at Essen and peaceful fun as every year.
I can´t wait to meet you - geeks kiss

Hi everyone,
I saw that some people from Argentina are coming to the fair, but I don't remember where I saw that. I am looking for someone who could bring over some games for me from there (which someone wants to give me, so there is no money involved. It's not KINMO, I have that, but the cover just looks so nice). If you think you could help, please contact me and I will tell you the details.
Thanks!


This one's covered as well. I am really lucky this year.

I’m in the UK.

Now there’s three different colours and I’d like all three. There the size of a phablet style phone so won’t take up much room in your luggage at all.

You will be fully prepaid and I’ll 3D print something sensibly sized of your choice (with a veto from me) and send it to you an receipt of the goods


Hilko Drude is on the case for me

Really hard to find in the US.

If someone could pick this up for me at Essen that would be amazing. Obviously will compensate! Thank you.

Hi there,

actually I am unable to get this game and so far I only find shops outside Germany. I am looking for it as a present as well as play it myself with the person the present will be dedicated to. If you are able to get this on short notice and can help me just drop me a private message via BGG (or other channels if you have them). Payment will be cash at handover.

I might be hard to grab in Essen but everything can be arranged as I am working at boot Hall 8-C121.

Let's see if I hear from ya,
Peat


Got PMed. Thanks!

To be honest, I'm a bit conflicted about this one, so maybe you folks can help me make up my mind...

We have the Deluxe version of Orléans and have been thinking about getting the expansions for ages. Unfortunately, the tiles are different for the TMG and dlp versions, so I am thinking of getting the TMG version of Invasion and Trade & Intrigue from the US if I can find a happy, generous mule. I can order it from Amazon using my Prime membership (which expires in a few days), but here's the rub: the tiles then won't match the dlp mini expansions!



#thirdworldproblem

Any one got any bright ideas or comments please?

Thanks,

Susie_Cat.

Stranger Things Season 1 Target Exclusive Blu-Ray

Unfortunately, this is only available in US Target stores. If anyone from the US is willing to fly in a copy (new or used), I'd happily buy a used die or any other game accessory from you and pay up to 30€ for it (or more, if you have higher expenses because of it). Advance payment via PayPal is also possible. I'll be at the Math Trade point on both Thursday and Friday at noon. Please help!

I am hoping someone from U.S. can pick up one promo and a light, small box game at Essen. I would be happy to donate to your gaming budget as a thank you. Please send me a geekmail.

Hi, I am looking for this game (in english) as a special christmas gift to a friend who is really into american politics. Does any of you have a chance to pick it up for the more reasonable american prices before leaving? I guess it would have to be a physical shop at this point, but maybe you know some.

Cheers,
Emil

Hey, I'm looking for someone, who could bring Secret Hitler to Essen. In EU are either fake versions available or the original overpriced.

AFAIK it should be widely available in North America.

I would be happy to strengthen your wallet a bit for SPIEL, if you can help me out.

TLTR: Be aware: you mule may disappear.

I am happy for everyone that had been helped by Mules this and the future years to come.

Unfortunately, not everything is a happy story, and this comes aa a warn about not really good 'chaps'.

I requested someone to bring the counter sets of Twilight Struggle Deluxe Edition to me. (It can be easily found here https://www.gmtgames.com/p-216-twilight-struggle-counter-set..., but is too expensive to ship to my country from GMT).
The original request item does not exist anymore to protect the identity of the mule.

Some nice geeks offered their hand, but one of them showed a store in German, and said that I could buy and have it delivered to him (he sent me his address) and that he would bring it to me in the fair. I ordered, and I received a confirmation from him that the item had arrived far before the beginning of the fair. Note that, so far, he was being really communicative. Also, he had not asked anything for that, so I gathered some GG as gift to him (old account with no avatar).

We agreed to meet at Math Trade Point so he could delivery it to me Thursday noon, and he showed up. However, he was bringing with him a used version of the sheets (with a tray set). He said that he forgot what I ordered (I know, this does not make too much sense, but sometimes writing in English is easier than speaking for non native, so I fought that we had a communication glitch here).

I asked if it was not possible to bring me the item that I ordered, and I did not want to keep his tray set. He agreed, and I we again would meet at Saturday noon in the Math Trade Point.

Kind of worried for all the trouble I was bringing, I offered him to ship (from his home) the counter set on Friday night (just in case he wants to give up the fair). And since them, I never saw him again.

In the following days I ve written to him several times, and despite of being showed as "logged in" each day, he has never anwered my requests.

So now I am here now giving a bit of warning for next Mules requests.
