Going to Essen this year? Want to meet some fellow geeks, maybe some that you have met here on bgg but never in person? You have come to the right place.

Make an entry with the game you are looking forward to the most (you can add more games within you entry, but please stick to one entry per person, as every year). You can write something about that game, if you want, but more importantly, you can add information where you might be met: your hotel, the booth you staff or whatever you want to give away. Obviously, none of us knows exactly where we will be when, but if you know who is coming (and willing to meet with other geeks), you can contact each other directly and work something out.

Hoping to see many of you in October!

Mission Impractical will see a kind of relaunch in Essen this year. The booth will be shared with Lautapelit again but with a little more space, or so I heard. It's going to be in Hall 3 - I will add the exact booth number when I know it. I will likely be there for a time every day, but maybe less frequently than last year. If you want to meet me, let me know and we can arrange some time. In any case, I should be there from Thursday morning to Sunday night.

Ok, good times to meet me will be:

Friday, 13:30-14:00 3-L116 Lautapelit/Vennerod (signing Mission Impractical)
Friday, 17:00-19:00 2-C100 KSK (staffing the booth)
Saturday, 18:00-19:00 3-N101 SAZ (staffing the booth)
Sunday, 10:00-12:00 3-N101 SAZ (staffing the booth)

Also at the math trade point on Thursday and Friday (and, hopefully briefly, on Saturday). See you all there!

I will pick up John Company at SPIEL from Sierra Madre Games. Nowadays I pretty much buy anything from Sierra Madre Games, that said, I'm still very excited about each game, this being no exception.

I will be at the fair for all four days, staying in Essen from Wednesday to Monday. I'm staying at the Novum Hotel Arosa, which is a first for me, and my friends. Our group is smaller than usual, going from six last year to only four this time, with one first time attendee. I am very much looking forward to the fair, as always!

My wife & I will be attending our 2nd Essen Spiel this year, as a small part of a vacation in Europe. We did the same in 2015 and had a great time, so we decided to do it again this year!

I posted a Geeklist about the games about which I'm most interested here: 8000 km to Essen Spiel 2017: Games of Interest. I'm a big fan of most CGE medium-heavy games, so I'm most looking forward to Pulsar 2849.

We'll be there on Thursday only. We're interested in meeting people who will be bringing Stroopwafels to the fair... or anyone, really.

Hello! My friends!

This will be my 6th time to Essen.
I'll be hosting TBD (Taiwan Boardgame Design) booth most of the time from Tuesday to Sunday. (Hall 7, D108)

This year my new game My Story will be published by Homosapiens Lab and demo at our booth. So I might need to teach the game or do some interviews too.

This is going to be a very busy year and I'd love to meet a lot of geeks in Essen!

This will be my first time at Essen (and only my fourth board game event)! Also first time in Germany.

I'm volunteering for Alley Cat Games so I'll spend most of my time demoing Dice Hospital in Hall 8, A124. I'm really excited about it and I'd love to meet some nice friendly people, especially as I'm travelling on my own and won't know many people there at all.

Come and say hello (I'll be the middle-aged fat white woman with glasses and brown wavy hair who either looks either unnecessarily enthusiastic or completely exhausted, or both).

I'll bring British snacks if I can figure out what we have that isn't available in Germany - any requests?
