What should I order in the annual post-Essen game order? Here's some ideas. This is a private sort of list for me to remember what I want, but I thought I'd publish it here, as someone else might be interested.

Suggestions are welcome in comments.

With the DSP and the good review from Spielbox, this sounds very much worth trying. I think this would work well when I'm visiting relatives in Jyväskylä, but will Fresco get more than one play with the gamers? I'm interested in trying + my collection isn't overwhelmed with standard euro fare in any case.

Kind of promising. Maybe too long, because I don't really need any more 2+ hour games.

This is a must-buy. Short 18xx game with a different theme from OO? Sounds very promising.

32,50 € from CosimShop.de.

Hands down the hottest game to come from this year's Essen. Must-must-must-buy. Fortunately it's also cheap.

This seems fab - wonder if it'll make it for the Essen.

Friedemann Friese's rather variable trick-taking game sounds like interesting, and will be very cheap in any case, so I think I'll give it a go.

Looks odd and has railroads, so definitely on my watchlist.
