Perhaps one of these years I will go to the Spiel game fair in Essen. I don't know when that might be, but I already know some things I would pick up if I could go this year (2011). Mainly it would be things things that I would have to wait a good while to get, or might never be available where I live (USA). (Edit: or might have exorbitant shipping costs.)

If you add items to this list, please follow the same criteria!

My family enjoys playing Mamma Mia! and Sole Mio!. In fact, here is a picture of some "Mamma Mia!" pizzas we made a couple of years ago which had all the ingredients:



Mamma Mia! Plus is a superset of the original, with an additional ingredient (shrimp!), and other nice things. But it will never sell in the US, since Rio Grande sells the original here and is not interested in picking up Plus.

So, if I were in Essen, I would buy this one for sure!

This is a nice-looking expansion to easily combine the boards to Small World and Small World Underground.


They say it will be available at US stores in mid-November, and I believe them, but it would be so much nicer and more convenient to get a free copy at Essen. If I were there, that is.

I like word games, and this is a fun-sounding variation I haven't seen before: you make up a new word from the dice you roll, everyone writes a definition for it, and then votes for the definitions they like best.


They're getting all ready to sell it at Essen. I don't know whether or when it will be available in the US, but if I were over there, I wouldn't wait.

I have just learned about this expansion to BANG!. I have every other expansion, and I don't how long it will take to be available in the US, so I would probably pick this up.

[I don't know why it isn't mentioned on the publisher's website yet.]

BANG! Blank Cards

That reminds me that I would also like to pick up a set or two of the Bang! Blank Cards that dV Giochi offers. As it says on their website :

Quote:
Create your own cards for BANG!

You can use this deck of blank cards for the best-selling BANG! to
personalize your game with your own characters and events!

Each packet includes 10 blank character cards and 10 blank event
cards.



Back in March when this announcement was made, it wasn't available in the US, and someone said that the shipping charge would be $45!!! An extremely good reason to pick it up at Essen.

(I do hope an FOGS carries it by now.)
