I purchased the app a few days ago and i was surprised to find the game so great since i usually don't like card games like this. Does anybody know if i ll be able to find it at Essen?

In case which version do you suggest to buy?

The publisher Eagle-Gryphon Games will be there, so I'd say that there should be good chance that you can get it there.

Personally, I think that the expansions add a lot to the game and increases the replayability, so I'd buy the edition with the most stuff included.

The team packs on the other hand don't add all that much. I Intend to pick up some more of them (I think I have three or four of them), but I'm a completionist and looking at it from cost benefit point of view, then you'll get much more bang for your buck from buying another game.

+1 on pretty much all that Morton said. Do yourself the favor and buy all the gameplay expansions (teams are fun but not as necessary) but start out using the base game and them add them after a while once you and your opponent got the timing down.

But most of all: buy it (it will be there AFAIK, I do pray that the newer expansions will be there a plenty), it is such an awesome game!

I'll +1 you back . I also added them gradually, though I think that I added the three that each adds extra of one specific player type at once for balance. Don't know whether that was actually necessary.
