Same procedure as every year... Here comes the 2017 Winsome Games' Essen Collection. Feel free to tell us all how you think about the new set in general and the included games. If you want to know more about the sets and the history feel free to check the meta list and the wiki entry.

John Bohrer wrote... I have sent a confidential pre-announcement email to every customer of a 2016 Essen Set outlining the cost and contents of the 2017 Essen Set. These customers have their opportunity to reserve their 2017 Essen Set before the Public Announcement is made on July 3, 2017.

Winsome Games will (probably) have it's booth in hall 2 at A100...

If you want to know a little bit more about the content, the guys from Heavy Cardboard made a little video about it

Eddie Robbins has created an 18XX game for experts, set in Uruguay. As usual with our Winsome 18XX games, a copy of 1830 is required to play, largely due to the need for the tiles. 1868 has a shorter playing time than 1830 and includes a number of little companies, a delayed fifth railroad and a bit of South American history. For 3-5 players for about 3 hours. Most money wins, of course.

The talented Tom Russell returns with another of his twisty-tricky train games, this one also set on the Iberian peninsula. Iberian Gauge is for 3-5 players and stock ownership is an important factor in this game, with each shareholder expanding the railroad. There are 5 railroads in the game and leased track, stock value bonuses and connection bonuses adding to the drive for expansion. Most cash + stock value wins this game, which lasts about 90 minutes.

Newcomer Matthias Burtt has provided us with a simple yet treacherous railway game set in Spain & Portugal. Iberian Railways features Loans, Interest and Insolvency as investors look to maximize their profits. Starting railways, expanding railways, merging railways are tactics used, with the outright purchase of Business Interests fueling the engine of money & power. This game lasts about an hour and the most Victory Points wins the game. For 3-5 players.

The Age of Steam: Sicily expansion is a bit more cutthroat than usual. This new expansion is for 3 players.
