Games I'd like to have a closer look at.

I would like to use this list to get feedback and opinions on the games, get news, and so on. In addition, the list also helps me to keep track of upcoming releases, but this is not the main thing, otherwise I do not need to make the list public. The list also deliberately lives by participating. Feedback is greatly desired!

Games that get my attention meet one (or more) of the following conditions:
+ great artwork
+ tile laying
+ worker placement
+ Pirate, Monster, Viking, Villain, Steam Punk theme

You won't find any
- War games
- 4X games
on my lists


!Warning! This list might be updated a lot.

My top list - tabletop together tool:

Here is what I really bought

I just love Terraforming Mars, and what I saw from this Expansion so far, I think I will like it. And after buying the first expansion, despite my own objections, I think this one is a must have.

Release: 2017 | Language: Multilingual
Publisher(s): HUCH!
Location: Hall 3: D120



+ Worker placement
+ Tile laying
+ Theme
+ End game mechanic
+ Variants



I like worker placement games, it's that simple. And I don't own any game with an India theme.

Edit: After reading the rules and watching a video I am quite sure I will love this. The different mechanics with worker placement, dice as a currency, tile laying and such are looking really good. + I love that the game comes already with a variant for advanced players. + the endgame mechanic is really interesting, because it's possible to win with so many strategies as the only rule is that both tracks (fame & money) have to pass each other.

Quote:
In the end, you must win the race with a combination of wealth and fame. The fame track and the money track run parallel to each other
in opposite directions around the gameboard. The fame markers are moved clockwise, the money markers, counter-clockwise.
As you build and expand, you attempt to increase both your fame and wealth so that your fame marker and your money marker intersect. The first player to have his fame marker and his money marker converge or even pass each other on their tracks, has a good chance to win.

If it is at Essen, I might have a look at it.

Edit:
It is possible that Schwerkraft also does the german version of this game. So the question is "Am I a patient person?"

I mean you can play as a gelatinous cube, who wouldn't want that?!

Edit: It seems as if Schwerkraft will do a german version of this. I don't have any specifics yet, but a pic on their Twitter Account suggests as much.

- have to check the KS page for KS exclusives, you tend to get only half a game if you miss the KS these days

I totally missed the KS somehow, that's a pity, because this seems to be just my kind of worker placement game.

+ workerplacement
+ game components
+ piggybacking on opponent's actions
+ interesting ressources production system on the player boards
+ goods conversion system
- perhaps too heavy/meaty for most of my friends

This seems to be a very interesting Euro and huge I like the different mechanics and that you can piggyback on an opponent's actions. Some elements remind me of Tzolk'in.

I'd really love to test this, but in the end I am afraid, this could be too heavy for most of my friends and won't be on the table often enough.

Available for preorder for 60€ on the Quined Games website.

I really like the 2 phases of this game. First you aquire parts for your ship and then you use the back of those parts to settle a planet + I like the card mechanic with which the parts are bought.

A really interesting idea, hope to find out more. Of course I love the artwork - again
And although I don't always like the tendency that almost every games has miniatures now*, I have to admit the minis are just too cute.

KS has started: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/438141406/cerebria-the-...?


*Sometimes it feels as if the minis don't even make sense, it seems that they're only included to be able to sell a game with minis and that makes the game unnecessarily more expensive

Isle of Skye: Wanderer (German first edition) (2017)
Lookout Games
Location: Hall 1: F133
MSRP 18€



There will be an expansion to Isle of Skye in August 2017. So I would be interested in having a closer look at this. But then, I think Isle of Skye is good as it is, and I am not sure if an expansion would really make the game better.

Edit:
After reading the news it seems as if there will be a lot more going on with the expansion as "simple" tile laying. I think the picture is quite promising, but then again, I really like Isle of Skye for it's simplicity. It is a straight forward game and a good gateway game too, but I am tempted by the additional options + you can always choose not to use the expansion if you need to

German news about the expansion:

I really like that it is a small fast game with enough depth to be interesting + the artwork.



Quote:
The way you trigger actions on your cards is the heart of the game. Everything depends on where you play them from, which is the game's main strategic element. You could play a project card straight from your hand and trigger its effect instantly or turn it into a module and play it from your preparation zone. This will let you add it to one of the five buildings in your settlement, trigger an action sequence and transport your colonists to Mars – a sure way to put a spanner in the works of your competition.
Each card's set of various actions combined with the buildings' unique properties leaves you with a number of small but substantial decisions:

− Where to put your card.
− Where to play your card from.
− What action sequence will give you the most possibilities within a given turn.

What's more, anyone can activate an action from a module placed in one of the buildings by another player and share its effects.


Their website suggest that there is a Essen Pickup option for pre-ordered games, so probably you can get your copy with a 1€ discount at https://shop.boardanddice.com/gb/glowna/165-pocket-mars.html...

I really didn't want to add this to the list because it's 3 players minimum and that's an real issue for me.
But it's Lovecraft, and the madness cards sound like real fun. I probably won't buy it at Essen, even if german is available but I really would like to demo this.

The images are gorgeous and it is steampunk-ish but in a more ghibli family fantasy kind of way.

Also the 'wheel building' concept sounds interesting.


This seems to be an huge gameboard

- US pre-order ~$55 (Cool Stuff Inc.) vs. 70€ MSRP (Spiel)

A Legacy City Building Game? Sounds interesting + I like the Artwork and metal coins so far. As it is also published by Feuerland, it's something I'd like to have closer look at.

Although it is intriguing, I am not sure about this. The problem is to get the same 4-6 players for 12 games, preferably without too much time between those.

This is a co-op game, so perhaps my husband won't like it. I like the idea and after all The Game is a co-op game too and he likes that + there seems to be a team vs. variant included

+ beautiful
+ Patchwork mechanic with a twist
+ Tile laying
- Not sure if I really need another one of those

I love Patchwork, it is one of my favourite 2 player games, especially because it is easy to explain, has a short duration and you can play it with almost every kind of player.
This is based on the same mechanic but with a twist, and as I never had the opportunity to play Cottage Garden I am interested to demo this.
BUT I am not sure, if I really need another game (Patchwork, Fest für Odin) with a similar mechanic

If I said I am not interested to test this, I would be lying. Although I enjoy their games, I normally skip the Queen Games booth except I have some extra time. So maybe I am not as hyped as others, but I still would like to have a look. + I get the feeling that mechanics with some kind of wheel are really common in this year's list
