This is my list with games I want to buy or check out in Essen this year.
Feel free to comment, but this is a work in progress and I might delete games that do not make Essen, that I lose interest in etc.

Must buy, but not necessarily in Essen. If there's any promos, this might change.

Vlaada Chvatil game - check
Great preview available - check
Fantastic theme - check
=> Blind buy.

Reminder: Buy directly at CGE as they sometimes have some goodies like glass stones instead of wooden stones in their initial release.

Must buy something at Cwali to get small expansion for free.

Edit: New Cwali games for Essen are "Basket Boss" and "Tricky Trek".
Given that I hate (well rather "don't care the slightst bit about") Basketball, it will probably end up to be Tricky Trek.

Note to Andy: Assortment of ceramic animals to be eaten by Lions. Great fun for Richard and Georg, nightmares for Elisabeth

Sounds interesting, though not much information available yet.
Since I have to get Dungeon Lords from CGE anyway, let's have a look.

I even bought Busen Memo last year just for a joke's sake, so I really doubt I can stay away from this if it is at least _any_ good.

Love the Deadlands scenario.
Components look a bit dull though.
Must prove to be an outstanding game before I consider buying it.

Looks great, nice components, available rules sound interesting.

Not "must-have-at-all-costs" interesting, but "worth-taking-a-closer-look" interesting.
