This is my first Geeklist and a record of my purchases from my first Essen Spiel. Hopefully it will be amusing for others.

Got in, made a bee-line for the Fragger Games booth, and scored. While some of my friends poo-poo'd this game, it was good to get this obsession off my list very early.

Great race game, based on the book not the movie. Unfortunately the movie's reputation kept the game from making it over to the states. Nice to score this "used" version still unpunched in shrink.

Loved the poker variant aspect of it. The limited edition caught my eye but there was no way I was going to be able to get that case back home. The smaller travel size has a cool wood texture to it, making the cardboard box feel like wood. Nice touch.

Mayday Games had many more than they wanted due to a shipping error, so they were giving this out for 5 euro when you bought Eaten by Zombies and Get Bit. So I bit.

Missed this one from last year and it didn't make a domestic appearance so I bought this heavy plastic box that folds up into a dice boot (as do the other games in this series.)

The other Mayday game has a similar "you get eaten" theme. Seeing a pattern here?
