Repeat the question.
Is there anybody who knows what the Essen 2013 release will be?

Thanks!

Usually at this time of the year, the brothers' plans for an Essen release are well known. Could it be that Spellbound took so much time out of them that they don't have anything in the pipeline for this year's fair? Definitely hope not shake

Something small, tightly designed and rather cheaper would be nice this year. Spellbound was the equivalent of the disappointing treble concept album in limited edition gatefold sleeve produced by a 70s prog rock outfit stretching themselves just beyond the limits of their musical skills. An indulgence bought by the fanbase, and appreciated for what it is, but little played since and - ultimately - a bit shit considering the obvious effort, time and love put in.

Spellbound is a very well designed game. I think problems associated with it had to do with production issues (hence the late delivery for some) and not the game itself. True, it caters specific gaming tastes, by then so do most Fragor games.

I too would like to see something of them in Essen, although I think it's kind if late, considering how they normally do things (pre-orders etc). Here's hoping!

Spellbound is a great game. My group loves it! Bring on this year's overproduced "concept album"!

When you look back to the previous years you will find the announcements about the new game and the pre-order usually appear on August 22nd or 23rd.

It's your call when and how you release information on your games, but a little courtesy would go a long way in building bridges after the numerous delays and poor communication with Spellbound.

As a customer who owns most of your previous Fragor releases, my enthusiasm for your company is dwindling.

I love the directness of your answer. It totally covers the question.

I have most of your games. I would love a copy of Leapfrog.

Keep up the good work!!!

I think the question is still a little early. If I'm not completely wrong, Spellbound was announced at the beginning of September last year. So I guess everyone who isn't the Lamont Brothers will still have a little while to wait to find out what the next release will be. :-)

Mr. Danzer, you are an evil tease...


Well, even if there is not any news yet pertaining if it will be birds, bees, bugs or bogies, the answer by Fraser at least tells us there will at least be SOMETHING in Essen...

Hoping for an expansion to Spellbound, even if Fragor didn't do real expansions so far.
Also hoping for another Leapfrog opportunity...

Leapfrog in addition to something new would be really cool - especially because it is Fragor's 10th anniversary at Essen, isn't it?...

Well answered.

Follow up Question - When will y'all let us know what the 2013 Essen game will be so that we can jump on the pre-order and throw our money at you and prepare to drink your Scotch at Spiel 2013?

Thanks!

I wonder if this is the year in which Fragor's annual announcement of their Essen release is at its latest ever? There is so much anticipation from various geeks for their newest game. I also wonder if the Lamont brothers will continue with the fantasy theme from last year's Spellbound, or will they return to the previous animal themes? Whatever the case, I can't wait to see their newest offering!

The "big" question: will the "miniatures" be even bigger this year? Not sure I have room on my shelf!
