So, there's going to be a new edition of this for this year's holiday season.

I must admit I was weary about the project when it was introduced last year, but after I bought it I kinda liked it.

Granted, there were only 7-8 promos I wanted, but I managed to sell/trade the other, so all's well in the end.

This year, the publisher seemed to have learnt some from last year's complaints. For the last two days he has posted pictures of the game that will be included. Not necessarily what kind of promos, but at least we'll be able to figure out for which games there will be promos.

Yesterday the first clues were posted with this picture:


My thoughts: Mysterium, Saboteur and Karuba

Today, the following picture was posted:


My thoughts: Broom Service, Arkwright and Istanbul.

Third set of games:


My thoughts: Camel Up, Cacao, Panic Lab(?).

Fourth set of games:


My thoughts: Gold West, Crisis, Tallinn (with help from someone on Facebook).

Fifth set of games:


- King of Tokyo, Portale von Molthar und Zooloretto

Sixth set of games:


- Hansa Teutonica, Robinson Crusoe, Arcadia Quest

Seventh set of games:


- Quadropolis, Bohemian Villages, Imhotep

So far, interested in 3 out of 21 (Karuba, Istanbul and Cacao). Not looking good, but still excited.

Isn't there 7 different ones pictured so far?
I'm at 3 of 7 (Istanbul, Karuba, and Broom Service)

No idea what game the penguin (or whatever it is) is from

The penguin is not from a game, and is pictured in both previews.
They also said there will be 8 previews. 3 x 8 = 24, which will be the number of promos included in a adventcalendar.

The penguin is like some sort of Frosted Games mascotte.

Well, I'm thinking it's actually for the expansions.

Only one slot in the whole Adventskalender this year is for an expansion. So the other one is still wrong.

Cacao is probably for the expansion and camel up is for the card game, so I'm guessing Panic Lab is wrong then?

Someone should update the description then because it says:
A board game advent calendar for 2016. It contains 24 small expansions for 24 different games,

Does that mean the others mentioned early - Broom Service, Arkwright, Karuba aren't expansions? Not sure how this is supposed to work if only 1 is an expansion and the rest are whole games?

It is 24 small expansions. What they are saying is 23 of them are expansions for the base games. 1 is an expansion that can only be used with a certain game's expansion.

I don't know if you've tried it or not, but looking at the games you rate highly I think you'd enjoy Gold West.

Here's the latest one


King of Tokyo, Die Portale von Molthar, Zooloretto

edit: updated. Thanks to Ray R. I never would have figured the second one out

So I would be 6 of 15 (karuba, broom service, istanbul, cacao, gold west, zooloretto) - assuming the Gold west tiles aren't the same ones that came with Bottlecap Vikings and zooloretto is a new animal tile

Thanks for posting those, was away yesterday, so couldn't post myself.
I'll update the OP.

So far, only interested in 3 promos, so might be better to either buy the box myself (at Spiel) and split the promos there with others or try to get those promos I'm interested in from someone else. Choices. Choices.

As a sidenote...I'll be in the US for 28 days in October/November, so if anyone's interested...we could start a trade post and I'm able to bring the promos with me to the US.
