This is THE place to let people know if you're going to Essen this year. Inspired by a journal entry (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geekjournal.php3?action=viewcom...), but I made it a geeklist so that it's easy to find and update - go ahead and rate it a 10

If you are going to Essen, just add an item with some information. As we get closer to October, we can use this list to contact each other, make plans etc.

This will be my first time at Essen! My wife and I will be meeting an old friend of hers (Sarina, a native), who will also be going! This will be Sarina's first gaming convention ever (she's not really a gamer)! Looking forward to the trip and meeting some BGGers and BSWers face-to-face! Also, I hope to pick up some harder-to-find stuff like die Macher.

I don't know what's going to be on the Hot List this year, so I've used Struggle as the picture here -- that's the game from Essen '04 I most want to play right now. I'll update this entry when I figure out what's coming in '05.

I am really hoping to go to Essen this year, but it will be a big step... the first time I'll have organised my own trip outside of my own country.

I reckon "Carcassonne - Burgfräulein & Drache" will be released before Essen, but I can't think of anything else that I'm waiting for that I don't already know the release date, like Through the Desert.

I really want to go, and I am planning on trying to go. However, I really would want to go with a group of people, either to share rooms/cars/whatever, and to have people to do things with.

So if anyone wants to get together a group, let me know.

A call to spanish gamers (specially those from Barcelona and surroundings) that want to go this year to Essen. Maybe we can try to organize a expedition... Does someone encourage?

Una llamada a los jugones de España (especialmente los que seais de Barcelona y alrededores) que queráis ir este año a Essen. Quizá podríamos intentar organizar una expedición. Alguien se anima?

In order to convince me to go travel the world with her, my wife has proposed that we end a two week trip in Europe with a stay in Essen during the Spiel...hard not to agree to that!

So we'll be flying out from Calgary and staying a couple days in Paris. We'll then likely mosey our way down to Germany, visiting as many vineyards and medieval castles as possible.

I'll likely spend Thursday-Saturday at the Spiel, and I'm hoping to find Chinatown at the used games booths. Very much looking forward to this.
