I wanted to put this on Essen subforum but I guess most people, even if they are goin to Spiel, are not frequent there.

So, are there any wargamers coming this year, that might be interested for a beer or a game even?

Let me and everyone else know, who knows maybe we organize a 7 day Angola tournament or something

Yup, going Wednesday through Saturday.

Wargamer central at Spiel is the UGG games booth, especially during the auction times.

Angola : we're already fully booked for the evenings - weird coincidence : I've got a game of Angola scheduled for this Sunday.

Going on Thursday and Friday. I'm off for a family holiday on Saturday though so it's packing on Friday night and sit the kids on Thursday because the wife is elsewhere...

Sure, say hi to the guy in the GMT or the Advance After Combat shirt. I guess I'll stick out from the usual crowd there... cry

Please feel invited to Phalanx booth! We'd love to see you there.

We will also have 1944: Race to the Rhine, Czas Honoru: Operacja Most III and The Magnates: A Game of Power - these games are still in print.

Germania Magna: Border in Flames is on Kickstarter now:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/phalanxgames/germania-m...


See you in Essen!

Instead of making another thread, I figured I'd just post here again.

Anyone wants to play something during the fair time? I will be in essen from tuesday to sunday.

Also, if anyone is coming from USA and has luggage room to spare, I'd be much obliged to take adventage of that and get some hard to find games in europe (unfortunately this year's mule list is not a success) whistle

Will be in Cologne for the entire Spiel weekend and visit at least on two days. Will spend most time around the UGG booth or at the Fanen booth looking at all the games I want to have but dont have the money for. cry
If anyone wants to game at Spiel or afterwards I'd be up to that!

I will be driving in and back on Thursday. I will be mainly picking up games I am looking forward to (WIF) but if anyone needs a quick tutorial on Fields of Fire I might take half an hour of my schedule....

Same as last year - Wednesday through Saturday - checking out dozens of games and meeting up with old friends. No time to game actually - basically we're there to chat & shop

Got over a 100 games on my "must check" list already - it's going to be brutal cool

edit : here's my list of wargames that will be released there - feel free to update / correct.

The new version of Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage - by Phalanx (2-B-106)
Alexander's Campaign - by Alcyon Creative
not new, but hard to find / take a look at : 2GM Tactics by Draco Ideas
John Company by Sierra Madre Games - not a "real" wargame, but they're calling it the spiritual successor to Republic of Rome as if follows the history of the British East-India company.
1754: Conquest – The French and Indian War - by Academy Games (2-F-140)
The Cousins' War - by Surprise Stare (7-G-121) - the War of the Roses in a 30-minute eurofied wargame - could be a new entry point into the wargame hobby.

I'll probably be going (if not me, then at least a mule to fetch all my "kickstarter-pickup-at-Essen), but I don't know which day yet.

Two ravens sit on Odin’s shoulders after flying around the world each morning and whisper all the news which they see and hear into his ear; they are called Huginn and Muninn.

I'm trying to organise leave to drive up there, however the decision is work dependant unfortunately. I'm already going to miss the Paris Wargaming Con thanks to the boss changing plans.

You won't - we're too used to dodging LOS cool

All kidding aside - just drop by the UGG booth if you want to talk to other wargamers. There's a steady stream of them going in and out the "kessel" there. And most of them have never even heard of BGG or CSW
