Loot day 1

From gallery of SteveGUK


Our day 1 haul from Spiel 2018. A mix of games, old and new. My wallet is feeling considerably lighter and I haven’t got all the games I’d like yet, but don’t think tomorrow’s haul will be as big. At least I hope not.. not sure how it’s all going to fit in the suitcase back to England!

Loot day 2

From gallery of SteveGUK


Purchases slowly grinding to a halt. Blossoms is a lovely little push-your-luck card game. K2 and Sagrada are classics which I’ve wanted for a while. Hopefully tomorrow’s purchases will be almost nil!

Day 1 Loot (Thursday)
From gallery of tOverney


Mostly went for expansions and other things we knew we wanted.
We've tried a fair share of new games but didn't buy any yet except for Gingerbread House that is a very good game.


Day 2 Loot (Friday)
From gallery of tOverney


I can't believe we actually managed to restrain ourselves from buying more games!
Also the day was a bit shorter as we went to the Doce Tower show at 5PM!


Day 3 Loot (Saturday)
From gallery of tOverney


BGG's promos finally cleared customs and it's finally possible to see what they had (yesterday there was a huge mass of people trying to get to the promos!
Also we finally found a copy of the Sagrada expansion!... Still no luck with Santorini's expansion.
Also had to get two awesome new games with clever card mechanism and awesome production quality!



Day 4 Loot (Sunday)
From gallery of tOverney


Got three more games, Gorus Maximus is a silly/gore-y (but with extra cute artwork).
Otherwise we got some cool promo for games we already had, found a meeple cutting board and bought a neutral and big playmat so that we can use it to play any card games without too much visual noise.

Spiel 2018, Thursday loot:
From gallery of Fullmoon
Many games from the math trade and auction list.
Discover Lands Unknown bought bright new! cool

Friday loot:
From gallery of Fullmoon
Again most from math trade and auctions.
Promo’s and small expansions both bought and hunted for. (Finding Romans and trading Catan stickers. laugh)

Saturday loot:
From gallery of Fullmoon
Including some crafty handiwork of da boyz (aged 3 and 6) and myself, thanks to Games Workshop!
At the front three Quodd Heroes promo’s. I’ll have to check that KS to maybe make a late pledge... I late pledged the full version of it now.

All in all a good Spiel, with planned less (brand) new game purchases. Too much still on the provebal shelves of shame. whistle

Thanks again to all math traders! And great to meet so many friends at Spiel as well!

This was my second Spiel. Just like in 2017 I went to Spiel on Thursday alone. I'm thinking about going two days next year, because there is so much to see!

New Games:
Underwater Cities with Underwater Cities: Biodome Promo
Prehistory
Teotihuacan: City of Gods (went for this one immidiately when I arrived, was able to get a signed copy!)
Forum Trajanum
Raiatea
Gentes
Gùgōng

Expansions:
Santa Maria: American Kingdoms
Terraforming Mars: Hellas & Elysium
Terraforming Mars: Venus Next
Terraforming Mars: Prelude
Terraforming Mars: Colonies
Because I bought all expansions at once, I could also get all old and new promo cards.

One older game:
Noria

On Friday I unwrapped all my games and put everything in bags. Some games have great component quality (Gentes, Raiatea, Forum Trajanum), while others are disappointing (Prehistory was by far the most expensive game, I expect better component quality than this!). Underwater Cities looks great, but the player board is extremely flimsy. I'm thinking about laminating them to give them some more sturdyness.

I was lucky to get Sidereal Confluence (although it will probably show up in stores soon, anyway. I was also happy to get the Dragon Castle playmats, as it is something I believe should be in the game in the first place. Definitely enhances the experience.

Surprises: Arboretum and Architects of the West Kingdom.
Disappointments: No Mage Knight big box. No Keyforge. No Agricola: Farmers of the Moor EN / Artifex deck. Also - Discover: Lands Unknown is a terribly mediocre 7th Continent wannabe.

Lots of games that were popular on the fair I've already bought before Essen and/or kickstarted and awaiting the package.

P.S. If someone knows what is that promo "postcard" character to the left, I'd be grateful. I have no idea where I got it from.
