I see lots of Essen lists pop up. Most of them with new releases. All new games of 2011 to check out and buy.

My shopping list for Essen is a little different...

First thing we do when arriving in Essen is go straight to Hal 4 to check the booths with second hand games.
I finally got to play Alhambra, and now I want it

At one of those booths there are many of those square small 2 player games. They're so easy to take along.
Last year I got two, and I guess we have room for one or two more...

From hall 4 we move on to hall 6 and there we go look for Star Wars miniatures boosters! Last year they were cheap (cheaper then normally) and we're hoping they will be even more cheap this year!

And while we're there, we'll probably search those big boxes full of heroclix just looking for a few cool ones.
We don't often play, we just like the figures!

I also need to get some more "game supplies"
Some empty dice, for some PnP games.
Possibly some print sheets, if they have good ones for a decent price.
Some meeples and figures, also for PnP games.
Maybe cute little tile bags, if I see anything I like.

And of course there will be freebies and promos!
Carcassone Die Shule is just one to look for.
I also want Small World Tunnels, Powergrid Funkenschlag: Der Liefervertrag, Alhambra: The Magical Buildings and probably many more...

At Essen I always go looking for games from the year before. Often they have too many left over from the year before and sell them at a much better price.
Glen More is such a game.
But also London, Luna, Genesis, Isla Dorada...
