Games in the Spiel 2017 Preview which spark my interest.

I will list some technical data (author, publisher, age and number of players, duration) and a short motive of my interest.

When rules are available, I will add a link.

After reading the rules I will give my second appraisal.

At least I will document my decision in this list..

With this approach I want to avoid mispurchases.
Comments are welcome!

States:
1 - waiting for rules snore
2 - have to read the rules whistle
3 - have to look oder play meeple or will see after Essen
4 - made my decision (thumbsup or thumbsdown)
5 - will not make Essen cry
(a bag bag means that the game is already bought elsewhere)

Classification:
: must have
: must see or play
: take a look
: take a look if there is enough time
: has time after Essen
: no further interest

My historical lists:
Herberts Essen 2016 Watchlist
Herberts Essen 2015 Watchlist
Herberts Essen 2014 Watchlist
Herberts Essen 2013 Beobachtungsliste (german)
Herberts Essen 2012 Watchlist

Players: 3-6
Time: 50 minutes

Price: 30€
First impression:
Moaideas brought interesting ideas in the last years. So I am looking forward for this one although there a no rules and no pictures available.

Rules: draft rules in the BGG files section

Second impression:
Your task depends on your identity:
- as a Republican you want to overthrow Ceasar
- as an Agent you want to hindet the overthrow
- as a Competitor you want to assume leadership after the fall of Ceasar
You have 7(6) turns in the game to fullfill your task. In every turn you can endorse, bribe or hire a citizen.
Should be played with 4 players minimum to have all possible roles in the game.

Conclusion after Essen:
bought and played!

First impression:
Fabelsaft for Funkenschlag?

Rules: in the BGG files section (english and german)

Second impression:
The rules did not realy force my decision. They only say how to place the cards on the boards. On the backside of each card we find a condition for the card. If the condition is fullfilled, the rule on the card becomes active in the actual game.

Real-time wargame with hour-classes for available actions. If you make an action, the used our-class and the object are blocked until the our-class is empty. After that, action and object are available again.

Games previously on this list I decided not to buy:

Tribes: Early Civilization
Price: 45€

First impression:
3X civilization game with 40 minutes playtime made by one of the designers of nations. genially or unusable?

Rules: In the BGG file section

Second impression:
After scanning the rules: quick and easy game - too pricey!


7 Wonders: Leaders Anniversary Pack
Price: 7€

First impression:
15 new leaders - why not?

Rules: no rules - only new material

Second impression:
a little bit pricey for 15 non-german cards!


7 Wonders: Cities Anniversary Pack

Price: 7€

First impression:
15 new buildings - why not?

Rules: no rules - only new material

Second impression:
a little bit pricey for 15 non-german cards!

Warpgate

Price: ?

First impression:
3X-game with a short playtime.

Rules: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wolffdesigna/warpgate

Second impression:
8 pages of rules. It isn't a 4X and the kickstarter campaign was canceled.

Conclusion after Essen:

Last Edit: added warpgate
