I was there 2 years ago. Last year I didn't manage to go, but this year I will be there, so I need to prepare.

I will try to answer myself two questions:

Do I want to play it? (for sure/rather yes/perhaps)
Do I want to buy it? (most likely/perhaps/I don't think so but we'll see/another answer)


My scale was not very useful and a little confusing for me as well, so here is the new one:

- I must see it, play it and most likely buy it
- I really want to play it and buying is a possible option
- I would like to play it and see how much I like it
- I would like to at least see this game
- Maybe I will check this one out too

A dice game from the designer of Automania, which is one of my very favourites.

It looks like some kind of skirmish, where you power up your character during play. Nice, cheesy retro Sci-Fi theme. Could be really good!

Interesting, original theme, cool artwork and something like medium eurogame. I only hope it's not too solitarish.

Basically you run your own Jurrasic Park. Does it have any interesting interaction between the players?
I really like the style of artwork although I worry if you are able to look at it for an hour or more.

Very interesting theme where "players control clouds, vote on the weather, and rain on the fields to make their water grow the most plants".
Highly interactive!
I'm really interested.

Bag building game from a designer of Orelans (which I didn't play, but it gets a lot of good opinions) and there are Alpacas!
I guess it's a bigger game than you can judge from the cover.

I have it on my shelf for about a year now and haven't played it since. I tend to really enjoy older eurogames and Mexica by Super Meeple looks outstanding. I want to see this one live and maybe get it IF I play the game before and like it.

Apparently you build guild in this game to attract heroes and become influential in the city.
Is any interaction there?
Looks nice, I like fantasy theme, even if it's generic.

I really enjoy city building theme, but usually games tend to utilize it in samey way like this color next to that one is +1 point, but the third color brings -1 point.
Anyway I will gladly see if this one is good - the artwork is pretty cool.
