This is another check list for Essen.
So why am I doing it?

1: I have many games on my wish list, hopefully this list will help me identify games that are new to Essen then other games I want
2: I Was actually asked by 2 people on the geek to do it, so why not

I'll be happy to hear your comments

This sounds like a really cool idea. It is not that I really liked any other games by the designer, but the original concept, man I need to see how it was done.

Ticket to Ride Europe is one of the few games that keep hit the table with my kids. Any expansion that will add to it is welcomed at our place

Sounds like a nice little card game. This is always good with none gamers and when looking for a short filler.

Sounds like a nice short game. Although it has low player interaction (just the bidding phase, it looks like it can be very interesting. Simple rules + short game = need to check

I actually started designing a game about this topic. I'm really curious on the direction this game went and how different it is from my initial ideas.

The idea behind the game sounds very nice and interesting. However based on initial session report and reviewing the rules I fear the game will take a lot more time then indicated on the box. got to check that out

I'm not that of a big fan of Dominion. sure it is a nice game, and I enjoy playing it, but haven't bought it yet, and several people in my group got it. So I want to check this new deck building game with fantasy theme.

Galactic empire building always sounds nice to me. However I fear that the game might be a bit to complex for my group at this stage. The rule book seems like a thick one. very not sure about this one

When I first read about the game I thought "cool, deduction game. this will work great here". But after reading the rules I understood this is not a true deduction game. You place card to limit treasure position. BUT this is just the game my kids will like.

I'm a sucker for civilization games BUT I didn't get any new ones lately since usually they are long and complex and I don't have gaming partners for that (waiting for the kids to grow up). it states 30 minutes per player so 4 player = 2 hours that is ok. the question is how complex are the rules and is it good at all with 4 or do you need more players

Agricola is nice and I'll probably get it in a couple of months so I thought I'd look into this one. Not sure how much text is on the cards. Maybe I'll need to wait for the English version even if I like the game
