Played it with my girlfriend at the publishers booth.
She fell in love with it within minutes and so there was no chance of leaving the booth without 'Aquaretto' in my bag.

Took this one at the Galeria Kaufhof booth for a good price.
Look nice and I am eager to give it a try.

I have to admit - this one wasn't really a 'must have' for me but I really like the theme

I saw this one at the Kaufhof booth for a really good price but was unsure whether to buy it or not.

Some older german guy explained the game to a friend and said 'it's a nice game and for this price you cannot do anything wrong'.

So who am I to argue against the wisdom of the elder?

Every year in Essen I see another more or less new game at the Queen Games booth that catches my attention.

2006 it's been Shogun.
2007 it's been Giganten der Lüfte

And 2008 is the year of Chicago Express.

I listened to a guy who explained the rules for a few minutes and took a detailed look at the game board and components.

Finally left the booth with the Chicago Express boardgame, the Chicago Express mug, the Chicago Express poster and the Queen Games cloth bag showing.... tadaaaa.. Chicago Express

BTW: I really like the cloth bag! Very durable, nice looking. Would have taken one even in the unlikely case I wouldn't have find a game to buy at Queen Games.

Picked it up at the Spiele-Offensive booth (dealer).

I was unsure whether to buy this game there since I hoped for a better price - but the fair day was nearly over so some colorful pieces of paper went over the table to the dealer and a very colorful box full of hours of enjoyment went into my bag.

After I went past the Lookout Games booth for the first time and noticed the two lines of people waiting to get their copy of 'Le Havre' I hoped to get the game at another booth (like one of the big game dealers).

Unfortunately some fair halls and about an hour later I found out that 'Le Havre' can only be bought at the Lookout Games booth. They did not give any copies to the dealers.

So I took my place in one of the lines and waited about an hour to get my hands on a german copy of the game.

I also took the animeeples, the 'Korrekturdeck' and the 'L deck' for Agricola while I was there.
No veggimeeples for me at that time since they were sold out. They told me to return at 3 p.m. which I did and fortunately some nice english speaking guy bought a bag of veggimeeples for me so that I did not have to wait another hour in line.

BTW: My girlfriend was somehow pissed after waiting next to me in the Lookout Games line.... cannot imagine why... after all ... hey... it's 'Le Havre'!!!

Hey... another 'I'm going to conquer the world using my pretty little meeples'-game... who could say no?

Also bought this one from the Kaufhof booth for 7 € less than at the booth of the publisher.

I saw a video review of this game from Scott (Boardgames with Scott).

Thanks for making these great videos, Scott!

Looked very nice and I like games with few but important game bits.

Sometimes I really enjoy a game that's not about building a curch, building a settlement, developing a society, invading another country for oil and so on

Bought this also at the Kaufhof booth.

After searching this game at some game deales booths having no luck I finally found it at publishers booth itself.

I really like the theme and the graphics.

The english speaking woman at the booth also explained the other two games they were selling. Both card games. One about laying out pipe-parts to build a lage pipe from one city to another - the other one a medieval themed game about building and developing your society.

Both games looked nice but there are three reasons I did not take then:
- I already spent about 300€ until the time I found this booth
- I had to carry what felt about 50kg of games already
- my girlfriend gave me the 'not anoter one'-look

So I decided to just buy 'One More Barrel' and head of to find 'Pandemie'.

I found a booth selling the english version of 'Pandemie' .. well ... let's say they wanted to sell it.
It seems the German customs can be very strict. The confiscated the whole shippment of 'Pandemic' because the games did not show a 'CE'-sign on the box.

If you don't know what 'CE' means try wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CE_mark

Well... I wanted a german copy anyway. Finally found it at the Pegasus booth.

'Roter November' is the german title of this game.

I was a little shocked when I saw the pirce tag but even more suprised when I opened the box. There are really a lots of bits in this tiny game box. Very nice game bit in a very very good quality.

Bought at the 'regular' Heidelberger booth.

I like the idea of adding some dice to a game where none have been before.

The look and feal of the game bits is very good - now this one has to prove itself in the next game battle

Picked it up at the 'AllGames4you' booth (game dealer).

Seems to be an expansions to play with one more player and also includes some small extras.

But hey.... we love Zooloretto - the expansion can't be that bad
