This year I didn't have the opportunity to go to Essen, and only one of gang from Lisbon got there together with 7 other portuguese (that I know of) and after giving him a nights sleep, I was thrilled to jump him and take on everything he experienced.

So my interviewed is:

Luis: Hi there
me: How are you? Are you still tired from the trip?
Luis: Everything OK. No. I hate to fly. But it was done.... And around here? What's up?
me: The same old news

Luis: The BGG, is not a big deal.
me: That was out it looked like from the distance here. A flop.
Luis: That it was no doubt of that. It was big and it was a good meeting point, besides that .....
me: It looked like the germans that are 90% of visitors didn't care about them
Luis: Something along those lines. There where lots of families there
me: yap, for germans, the boardgaming is a lot like to us the football (soccer) that we put the TV to show when we have a visitor at home.
Luis: On spot.
