Essen 2018 will be bigger than ever - with another big hall added to the fair. So let's start collecting and create the biggest collection list for 2018, too.


To give it a quick start I'll quote HilkMAN regarding the details on how this list works:


While it is still early in the year, I would still like to ask for as much help as I can get to assemble as comprehensive a list as possible. So add your lists, add other people's lists, tell people whose lists you see about this one, etc. These collection lists can get impressively long if everyone helps.


A few requests:
- add others' lists only when you know they are ok with it, and please do mention the user in the posting.
- ideally, you add your own and spread the word.
- however, if you find your list on this one and are not happy about it, please let me know and I will remove it.


I will sort some lists to the top of the list, namely those lists which aren't just personal watchlists, but lists which are useful for many people. You will see what I mean when these start pouring in. Or you can check previous years' lists here:


Essen 2017 collection of lists
Essen 2016 collection of lists
Essen 2015 collection of lists
Essen 2014 collection of lists
Essen 2013 collection of lists


How to add a geeklist to a geeklist

1. Find out the ID of your geeklist. You can find it in the browser address line when you open your own list. Remember it, write it down, make a screenshot of the list and print that out, or simply keep the tab open for reference.
2. In this geeklist, click on "Add item".
3. Find the fourth column of what's opening then, and click on GeekList
4. Enter the aforementioned geeklist ID.
5. If you want, you can enter an image. For that, you will have to find out the ID of the image. Works roughly like 1. above.
6. Enter a description or whatever else you wish to tell us.
7. Click "Save".
8. Be happy.


A final word (also borrowed from HilkMAN):

I've commented in a lot of geeklists to point the owner to this collection of lists. Which means I got subscribed to many, many geeklists - more than I can personally handle.

Therefore, I'll unsubscribe after a short while (after the lister has commented on my comment, thumbed it, or updated his/her list in any other way) as I'll assume the owner has read the comment and will act if she/he wishes to.
So if you want to reach me, don't assume I'll follow up on further comments on your list, but find me here or per geekmail.

Thanks everyone - enjoy the many different lists!

Hi, this will be my watchlist for Essen 2018. Since I have this since January some things have changes over time (games postponed or so) but I try to update the comments about that. Have fun and feedback is always welcome.

My favorite games last year (just to give you a feeling what games I like):

Gloomhaven, Spirit Island, The Lost Expedition, Otys, Keeper, Sycthe, Santa Maria, Clank in Space

This is my list for SPIEL '18 in Essen. It will be my sixth time attendance at the fair and I feel more experienced than in former times. My shelves are full ... so I really want to choose wisely from new games.

Feel free to leave comments and suggestions!

This'll be the 3rd 'proper' time I've been to Essen (last year was a 1 night, fly in fly out kind of affair), and as always looking forward to it. I look at my shelves beside me and realise that maybe, just maybe, quality is starting to outshine quantity (as it should really, but OH SHINY THING...), so this year I'm going to be quite restrained in my purchases. Key criteria are:

- Games that'll not come out in the UK for a fair while longer (case in point, Lorenzo expansion still doesn't appear to have made it over to the UK!)

- Games that could be a total barg by buying from a different publisher (case in point, I got the city of spies expansion for £15 rather than the outlandish £30 Stronghold were charging)

- Picking up of preorders

- Haba games! (So hard to get a good range in the UK)

- Games that may never see the light of day outside Essen (e.g. Riga)


So... what's on the list?

My list is small and more of a reminder to myself what to check once I’m there. In the hectic atmosphere at Spiel I tend to forget stuff I wanted to do, with this list by hand I’ll be fine. The list is a living list so Games get added and taken away, sometimes I leave games on the list which no longer interest me but not games that don’t premiere at Spiel.

The Geeklist-item picture shows what I brought home from last year’s Spiel. This year will be similar to less.

You are welcome to comment or add suggestions.

This is the third iteration of our "little" list (2016 & 2017 each contained over 150 games in the list, so "little" is still ... understated).

This list is mostly a helper for Essen Spiel 2018 and our FLGS (what to play & try ... and buy whistle) as well as keeping an eye on interesting (upcoming) crowdfunded games in 2018.

These are the links to our older watchlists.

I only list games which might be of interest for me in 2018, i.e., tactical or strategic Eurogames. Games I like very much are Caylus, Ora et labora, Luna, Viticulture, Mombasa, Caverna, etc. So, this is the sort of games you will find on this list - new games which might be similar in one or the other way.

Therefore, this list might be of interest to others who also look for this kind of development games that are a little more complex than typical family games.

My 20th consecutive visit to the Spiel in Essen can't go without the traditional buy and checklist. Unlike the years before, I will only list the items that have made the final cut and not the ones I am going back and forth over while prepping for the fair. I have the preview tool for that.

The small collage accompanying this entry is a small summary of last year's loot. I should really try to play more and buy less this year. (Especially since acquisitions in 2018 haven't really been on the slow side...)

Edit: I have mistakenly deleted my "PreparESSENs 2018" list. Since I can't undo the action and there's not much sense in a post-convention recreation, I have replaced the entry with my acquisitions list.
