Does anybody know if I really need to pre-order it to get at Essen Spiel 2016? Does acclaimed/expected games as Scythe run out fast or there are copies for everybody?

https://morning-family.com/preorders/scythe

On the shipping page you can select "Spiel 2016"

Corum: I really have no idea how many copies Morning Players has pre-sold or how fast they'll sell at Essen. It seems like you can only help your chances of getting it by pre-ordering it.

"Does acclaimed/expected games as Scythe run out fast or there are copies for everybody?"

There are a little over 1000 copies of Scythe in English, French, and German at Essen, and there are hundreds of thousands of people who attend the convention.

If you pick a copy and click "next" there's an option for pickup at Essen 2016 at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for the additional details!

I think, I'll take the risk. I'll be there right when it opens on Thursday morning, and if I don't get a copy at the Spiel, I'm also fine with waiting a couple more months to get it from a regular (online) store.

I decided to spring for the preorder, but the best of luck to you!
Better make sure you know where the booth is and make a dash for it

Did the pre-order for pick-up at essen though never received much of a confirmation mail (only a pledge summary mail), despite the money being withdrawn from my account for a few weeks. So still unsure whether i'll be able to get it at Essen.

Trying to get in contact with morning players to verify is also proving not to be very simple (no phone pick-up, no reply to e-mail, site offline now..)cry.

I'll tag Morning Players here in case they can answer these questions (particularly yours, sertu).
