I have a lot of games on my Radar, but these are the games I'd like to have a closer look at at SPIEL

As in the last years I would like to use this list to get feedback and opinions on the games, get news, and so on. In addition, the list also helps me to keep track of upcoming releases, but this is not the main thing, otherwise I do not need to make the list public. The list also deliberately lives by participating. Feedback is greatly desired!

Games that get my attention meet one (or more) of the following conditions:
+ great artwork
+ tile laying
+ worker placement
+ puzzle elements (as in Patchwork or NMBR 9)
+ engine building / tableau building
+ Pirate, Monster, Viking, Villain, Steampunk theme

You won't find any
- War games
- 4X games
on my lists

!Warning! This list might be updated a lot.

I like the artwork and although there is nothing to like about the black plague I like the look of Pest Doctors in Games (Darkest Dungeon, yay!)
Although the KS was very interesting the game has several mechanics I normally don't really enjoy (Area control, Auction/Bidding, Take That) so I passed, but I like to try the game anyway.

Armada is an expansion for 7 Wonders that can be combined with the base game and/or any combination of expansions. 7 Wonders is still one of my favorite games for playing with larger groups, and one of the few non-war game, non-4x game or non-party game out there you can easily play with up to 6 players (I never played with 7 or 8 players before)
I don't have every expansion for 7 Wonders because somehow I didn't like them. This expansion however seems to add a bit more interaction with the other players to the game, so it could be interesting.



Quote:
With this expansion, each player gets a separate "naval" board at the start of the game in addition to their wonder board. The expansion includes additional red, green, yellow, and blue cards to shuffle into the deck, and each time that you pay for the cost for any red, green, yellow, and blue card — not only the ones added in this expansion — you can pay an additional cost shown on your naval board to advance your ship of the matching color. When you advance the red ship, for example, you gain naval strength, and at the end of an era, you compare your naval strength against all the players at the table, not only adjacent players, to determine who's strongest, who's second-strongest, etc., with victory points handed out accordingly.

Advancing on the yellow and blue tracks gives you coins and victory points, respectively, with additional naval strength at the far end of the tracks. Advancing on the green track allows you to discover islands, and to do this, you draw the island deck of whatever level you reached, then choose one of the islands in that deck and put it into play.


There will be some Promo Stuff at the Repos Booth
Quote:
Armada:
1 Free Exclusive Wonder
4 Translucid Plastic Ships (One for each Color)
1 Ex-Ludis


And I think I read somewhere that there will be more, but I don't know where...
7 Wonders: Palace, Catan, Stevie, Wil, Louis, Esteban, Nimrod, Art Pack, Wonder Pack, Metal Coins, Scorepad

I really enjoy Azul, so I am a bit afraid this is just a game that wants to ride on the hype train. But I was totally wrong about Azul last year, so I'd like to try this one.

Saw some videos for this one and now I am really interested to try this. We will attend to the Pegasus Game Night, so I hope I'll be able to demo the game there.

I love B2C with 5-7 players, but Castles wasn't a game for me, especially with two players.. but I always liked the concept of building a castle.

I am not sure if I really want to try this game. It just looks so much better than B2C, the game tray is cool and with a "real" 2 player variant.... I would to have get rid of between two cities as I don't have the space to own two games that are so similar..

not sure

As far as I understand it, this seems to be an easier version of citadels with a pirate theme. There are some differences, because you don't really draft the cards but you get two and choose one and you don't build anything. It's all about loot, getting it, stealing it, so there's probably also more take that.
I like the artwork so far and it has a pirate theme + for 15€ it's worth a look, even though I'm seldom in need of a 9-player game

I never played Kohle, but I heard so many good things about it, besides the new edition looks awesome.
But I have to find out a bid more about the differences between Birmingham and Lancashire and the game itself.

need

If there hadn't been the describtion the box art would have made me ignore the game in an instant. Fortunately I did watch a video about the game and now I am interested. It's tile laying and tableau building, with a neat scoring mechanic.. I hope I'll be able to try it.

Edit:
We already had the chance to play the game, so no need to do it at SPIEL. I like the game mechanics and it plays fast with two players. There are some intersting choices but it isn't overly complex. I can't say too much about the game after just one playthrough, but I am not sure how I feel about the scrolls mechanic (the player who is farthest on the scroll track is the first player.. always, and being first is essential especially when choosing your scoring cards) I'd like to try it more often and we're thinking of buying the game.

Still the graphics are an issue, not only is the artwork old and ugly but in some cases it affects the gameplay.
The tiles have a light green and a dark green background (light = normal tiles, dark = extra tiles) but the two colors aren't easy to distinguish and that's also the case with some of the roof colors (gold/brown).. perhaps it works with very good light conditions, but it wasn't easy when we played. + the icon / chips for bread are really strange.. looks more like an old orange slice...

The theme and images on BGG appeal to me.

Quote:
In Ceylon, players take on the role of the pioneers who developed the Ceylon tea industry. As such, they build plantations in different districts and at different altitudes. They produce tea and try to sell it to the most important export companies. To favor this task, they must win the favor of the counselors of each district and develop the necessary technology that allows them to get ahead of their competitors.

Well it's a game about chocolate or to be precise about a chocolate factory. The game mechanics sound a bit strange and I'd like to demo this to see for myself how the game works.

Quote:
Gameplay overview:
Players are each given a starting player board which will have two Factory parts which apply to a physical conveyer belt. The conveyer belt part of the player board contains long slot with an empty region in which to push square tiles along. The tiles will house the chocolate pieces players will manipulate throughout the game.

During the game players will initially draft new factory parts (to add to their player board) and specialists (one time use cards with special powers).

Then each player will “push” three times cocoa into their machines. During each “push” players will be able to use fuel and their factory parts to manipulate their Chocolate pieces. Careful consideration will be required for the spatial element of the game as Chocolate pieces can only be manipulated during a push by the Factory part that is adjacent to their tile.

Claim 2 is a standalone sequel to Claim, featuring five new factions that can be played on their own or mixed in any combination with the factions in Claim.

More races for Claim, could be interesting... but I don't know if I really need them..

There will also be a German Version, but as the Game itself is language independet I'll stick with english.

I pre-ordered this for Essen pick up. I bought the base game last year and I really enjoy it. Hopefully they won't have the same customs problems as last year

There's a promo card for this one

It's free when you buy the game... I hope you'll get it too if you just pick up your pre-order

If there's a chance I would like to give the game a 2nd try. I was already able to play the game and my first experience wasn't that great... and that's a pity because I think the mechanics are really neat.
Perhaps my expectations were too high or the game just doesn't play very well with 2 players...?

This, again, is a former Kickstarter. Artwork and Steampunk got my interested but I prefered to wait and see if I'll get a chance to try the game first. So I hope to get my chance at Essen.

Crisis at Steamfall is a dynamic adventure game. You play with characters that have unique abilities and explore the forbidden areas of a mysterious city. You can delve into the city and interact with its civilians while managing your character’s mood and resources. Additionally you'll gear up by building awesome items; then modify them with crafted upgrades or looted alien technology in order to aid you in battles or civic challenges.

There are two game modes, you can either cause the crisis in the competitive variant or save the city in the fully cooperative scenario.

A King of Tokyo-ish game for two to six players (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 2v2v2, or free-for-all). Another KS I didn't pledge because I wanted to try the game first.

pre-ordered

Pre-ordered as part of my full KS pledge. I'd like visit the booth and have a closer look at the components.

This seems to be a light solitaire-racing like tile laying game with a slightly educational theme and cute artwork.. could be something for the girls.

not sure

This was a KS I really would have loved to back, but because of the language dependency I didn't. I still hope for a german publisher to release the game.
I mean, the artwork and table presences are great, the main mechanisms are worker placement and card drafting and from what I've read so far the game is very well designed
