Canonical "NEW games I played at Essen 2009" Geeklist
- Daniel Danzer(duchamp)Germany
< --- This
iswas the "pot".
Okay, the idea behind this
iswas pretty simple. It didn`t work too well, though - see note below
We had the "Upcoming games" lists, the "Canonical Essen 2009" list, approximately 639 "My Essen wish/buy/try/bought/played/whatever-list"-lists.
Before everybody creates his own "My games played at Essen" list with about 6 or 8 items, so nobody can find easily news about his favourite game he "wants to know more about", here it is:
THE CANONICAL LIST FOR ALL GAME SESSIONS BGG-USERS PLAYED AT ESSEN 2009.
Or, at least, the ones submitted here.
Of course, this is supposed to be fun. So here it how I could imagine being this fun:
- Create an item AND PAY some (a tipp to this list) - pay as much as you want (1 per item would be perfect, but if you submit a lot, this would be quite expensive ...). If you don`t have any, don`t pay anything. Just as you think.
- Write down a SHORT first impression of the gameplay experience you had. No huge rules explanations, no complete summary of every turn and every move, but more about your feeling, the gameflow, your overall impression. If you already have a list or thread by your own, just PASTE AND COPY!
- If you have and are able to (connection-wise), add a photo. This would be great, but is not mandatory. (And, of course, good photos have to go here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/47472)
Deadline is midnight 30th of October / 1st of November. This is for giving you the chance to add pictures or more sessions you were not able to type down in your netbook being WLAN connected on your hotel bed after playing all night, but now, at the airport, you have another ten minutes to get it done. And for people having a look at this and vote.
The final pot (all tipps + 68.25 from my account, so 127 ) were spread as following:
The 12 (ORIGINAL) items (excluding my own submissions) got their share from the loot according to their votes (127 altogether).
LET IT GROW.
NOTE: Policy changed: Thanks to all participants and recommenders! I added all GeekLinks I could find, so this is hopefully a real "canonical list" of gameplay sessions at Essen now - still growing. Enjoy and add more as a comment to the game entry. I only added "session reports" (short and longer ones), not if a game was only mentioned as "bought" or fun situations at the booths ...
Thanks for participating!
