Ahh so it is that time of year again. When the Essen lists start, when every list is populated by the same games, too many games really. I am not sure how many games people buy, this list will have some cross over it others for sure, but it will not have 40 games. It will have at most 10, I then usually end up getting 4-5 games at Essen as it is usually so overwhelming.

Anyway on with the list.

It will change, be sure of that.

Edit: I have changed a lot of games around on this here list as the more I read about certain games the less I am interested in them.

Another bag builder from DLP games. We had an enjoyed Orleans but found that it took up too much room and the expansion really put it over the edge. Now Altiplano comes also from Herr Stockhausen and has a similar bag building mechanism to Orleans but looks to have a smaller foot print and a more unique theme. My finger is on the pre-order button as I type. 46€ at Essen.

Paid: 46€

Sounds promising. Looks great, sadly after reading the rules there is a dummy player in the 2 player game and for me and my wife that is one thing we hate.

Pre ordered: 19.50€

Now I am a huge Stephen King fan and loved Stranger Things, this game looks like a great mix of those genres and it's 2 player.

Pre ordered 17€
