Got home 90 mins ago. Knackered. No particular order. I got some more designers. I'll edit this later. Some games are not on the geek. I liked Pompej, Goldbrau, Nasenpsiel, didn't like Candamir and YES is sh*te.

It took 2 days to track Ray Mulford down. He was extremely generous to bring this over as a swap for Grand National Derby. Note to self, fix a definite time and place to meet!

Got the designer/publisher Bernd Brunhoffer to find us a copy to play! Forgot to get his mugshot! To be honest, I didn't like this much, no interaction and a runaway leader. But we got it cheap for 17 euros.

Even better bargain, only 9 euros for this well liked game. All Games 4 You is the best place for bargains at Essen. They had Bus cheap too, Nuggets for 5 euros, lots of very good prices.

Another bargain, second purchase of the show, Face to Face had a stand and this was only 15 euros. At one end of the stand. At the other end, it was 20 euros! A must have game at any price, but if they will be at Essen every year, another problem solved!

I played the prototype in May at Bruno Faidutti's Gathering with the designer Jens (is that enough name droipping?). It was ace then and ace again at Essen. A must buy game, this was really good fun, clever and very quick. But, it was 29 euros on some stands yes 29 euros for a small box game. We got it for 14 euros at AllG4U.

Got this in shrink for 6 euros. Apparently it's a card game about a family of liars, in some way. Why did I buy it? The designer is Kiesling, so it can't be bad. We hope.

A freebie in exchange for my email. Considering DoW had just won the SdJ and hence the 500,000 sales in first year prize, they were amazingly tight with this. They would only give me one after I wrote down my email address, and absolutely would not give me another for a friend. And it's a tiny pack of cards in cellophane. DoW are setting new standards for high prices and annoying me.
