The game I enjoyed the most from Essen 2016. New development cards! Woohoo! More variability! Don't care for a fifth player but I will buy it anyway.

I wasn't too impressed with Flamme Rouge when I played it last year in Essen. However, I did buy a copy a few months later because I wanted to give it another chance and suddenly it clicked. Very much looking forward to this expansion.

Sold Sagrada since my wife didn't like it. I was missing something myself as well, mainly interaction. Not sure if this will fill that gap though. But it sure looks nice...

Edit: This game has everything what I wanted Sagrada to be - I will definitely purchase this.

Announcing the Tea & Trade Expansion!!!

Took a little time to appreciate this game. For me this is Rosenberg best game, not sure if it really needs an expansion and I will probably never get it to the table with three. Still, one to check out in Essen.

My kids love kingdomino. For me it's perfect as it is, so it doesn't need an expansion. But a different game which is at the same time an expansion is certainly interesting. Worth checking out.

Love the theme, and always room for a light/medium auction game. Depends on how it plays with 3. Need to try this one first.

I love Castles of Burgundy but I didn't really like the Card Game. This looks better - a pleasant game to end a gamenight.

Lately I'm really impressed with the elegant designs of Alex J. Kevern. Simple rules but rewarding gameplay, this is how I like my games.

Edit: after seeing the review I think this is far too mathematical for me. Still like to try it though...

At first sight it looks a bit more complex in comparison with previous games of Inka and Markus Brand - so I really should read the rules. Hope it's not too complex...
