Really get hooked by the good dice tower review. Love the theme and like the cards mechanic. Hope to grab some promo cards as well.

Edit: already bought the base game. Fun little game that is absolute gorgeous. And the mechanic is really great too enjoyed it as a solo quite a bit.

So Essen is now just for Promos. Hope there will Be some availible.

For the last years What's your game always has a big new Euro to present. After they doing Brasil as a KS I really wonder what game they have this year.

Also do not know if it will be for sale at Essen. Liked The DiceCity concept and this seems to be a much improved version.

Edit: After reading the rules I am not sure anymore. I guess it will depend heavily on the different cards abilities wether this is a game for me or not. If there are some cool powers then I am in.

Instant buy. Like Nation-The dice game a lot and I guess putting this game more on the heavy side really improves it a lot.

A new Feld game. Always worth a look.
Hope it is better than Delphi.

Edit: After reading the rules I would say: nice but not very special. No really new mechanic and the stuff you can do with your actions have been seen several times before. But maybe still I will give it a try.

More Mystic Vale is always good. Do not know if this will be ready for Essen but at least we can hope. Wanna grab Vale of the wild at Essen as well, so this would be a great combo.

Wanted to grab a copy at Essen but now I read on their home page that wind Gambit will be released December 2017 so I guess the chances are pretty low for this.

Do not know much about this game (worker placement with changing worker spots?) but it looks just great (reminds me of the Big book of madness).

Edit: After reading the rules

https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/150904/official-ex-libris...

This reminds me more of Fabled Fruit than BBoM. Because of the changing worker placement spots and the whole card collection stuff. Not sure about this any more, but I guess at least I will have a look.

Maybe I should have a look at this, at least Clank! Is very popular and the modular board is a cool addition.

Now this one sounds quite interesting after reading the rules. Using dice for worker placement stuff (a little bit like Marco Polo) and also tile laying could end up in a very good game.

Even if I do not know much about this one a new action selection mechanism always attracts me :-). Do not know if this will be available at Essen but I keep the fingers crossed.

Looks amazing and seems to have a feeling quite similar to the Gallerist which I like a lot because that one did not have rounds and in particular do not have this 'end of each round you have to do the following stuff' mechanic. It is just player turns.

Edit: Pre-ordered :-)

My guess is that there will be an expansion for 'Great western trail' and that would make it an instant buy for me. Like this game a lot. Maybe also a promo card for 'Terraforming Mars'?


No TM but still an insta buy because of Great western Trail and A feast for Odin.
