These are some games I've found titillating from some of the recent Essen 2004 reports (mostly from Rick Thornquist).

I don't have Verrater, but it's always sounded interesting and this looks similar with some beautiful cards. Card games that play like board games is always a curious description which appeals to me.

The graphics on this really appeal to me. I'm a sucker for Mediterranean maps. Looks like it's a limited edition. Plus, I don't really have any other trading games besides Settlers.

I'm a huge Martin Wallace fan, but I'm also hesitant to get another long game that will take 3-4 plays before everyone really "understands" how to play. My group is a little too fragmented for that

Rudiger Dorn... I've got Goa but still haven't played. This looks like another great brain burner I'll need to check out.

Some say a slightly heavier Ticket to Ride, but still well within family game territory. Looks great too.
