The list of games I have brought from Essen in 2010 and what happened to them over the time one year. Do they shine after one year? Now one year after the fair it is time to draw some conclusions about choices I have made. Did I wasted some or invested money in good entertainment and experience?

In one year I'll make such a list for the new 10 items in my collection.


This list was inspired by the Geeklist of thomasdv where he presented his 8 games from Essen 2010 and what he thinks of them now.

I prefer the basic family Agricola over hundreds of cards in full version. Therefore neither this nor CZ-deck was used.

I like the game a lot.
I have bought the recent expansion in Essen 2011. We'll see if this was a good decision.

the best of the 2010 games form Essen. I have never won a game, but enjoyed it every time.
I have bought the 5-6 players expansion this year.

played once

Since Essen 2011 I have played Power grid only once and I've used those cards in the play. No special thoughts about them, but will not give them away.
