Hi y'all,

are you looking for an overview
concerning helpful informations
about the boardgame exhibition "SPIEL '16" in Essen and its novelties?


Here you find a compilation of some interesting links.




Please note:

> I marked the (in my opinion) most relevant links/infos with a


> The content of most of the linked items is in German - - a big "sorry" to the non-German-speaking forumites! (But my English explanations may help you find out if the content of a certain link may still be helpful to you!)






----------------------------------------------------------------------
1.) boardgame preview: overall lists (all novelties of the "SPIEL'16")
----------------------------------------------------------------------

https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/193588/spiel-2016-preview... (Eric's great "SPIEL'16" preview list, the probably most detailed Essen novelties list to find online. :-) Sorted by publishers' names)

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/63798298/Essen_2016_prev... (the bgg-listed Essen games in alphabetical title order and on only 1 page. It strains my computer, but the overview is extremely helpful, especially when searching for a certain game (e.g. in order to find the publisher's booth no.). Thanks to bgg user Pierre (Peyo61)!)

http://www.merz-verlag.com/uploads/2/1/4/0/21405396/st_16_ne... (the "official" overall list, i.e. the "SPIEL'16" host's catalogue, listing the publishers and their games, now including the booth numbers;
you should associate this list with the hall plans, listed at -> 4.2 )

http://gesellschaftsspiele.spielen.de/messeneuheiten/2016/es... (overall preview list, partial with links to news/rules,
now also as diverse PDF files with variously themed sortings, e.g. this one:
http://gesellschaftsspiele.spielen.de/downloads/herbstneuhei...)

http://www.spielen.de/forum/download/file.php?id=2000 (preview list with currently about 2000 novelties, listed as an "Open Office zip file", thanks to spielen.de "community member" Dee!)

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gd1wd8ccuitmswh/AABJ284RYD4-bhNCe... (preview game list as PDF, the first one you can download from there is sorted by booth numbers, which may be helpful for marking your individual "route" through the halls, or checking out what's to see at booth XY; thanks to spielen.de user Knut!)

Hi Christian!

Nearly all linked items on my list are in German,

except those few (currently 5) links that start with "https://boardgamegeek.com/..." - those are in English.

Kind regards,
Daniel
