What will be your the first game you buy at the 2016 spiel messe? Will you be running there or walking at a leasurely pace?

Mine is probably Fog of War or Powergrid the card game.

I'm coming to you Christian to buy Fable Fruit (if you have in English) and to drop off Beer from Shane.

I'll pick up several copies of Lorenzo il Magnifico for a couple of guys from the mule list (and myhumble self) on Wednesday.

On Thursday I'll show up as early as possible at the Heidelberger sales booth.

Last year being in the very front of the queue I got The Battle of Five Armies for 15,- and Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) for 12,- and a few other cheap buys.

Nothing. I'll be demoing on Thursday morning. So most likely will see Christian, Paul, and others heading to Stronghold.

I have a specific booth and game in mind, and I'll make sure I am somewhere at the front of the line when they open the doors.

We'll probably be heading for the Eagle-Gryphon booth to check out Morocco, but no pressure - everything on our wishlist that has a decent chance of selling out soon is pre-ordered anyway

Hi Paul,

I (hopefully ;-) ) think you confused Christian with me... And yes I will be working at 2F, but we only have the German version. But Stronghold, which will be right across the 2F-booth, will carry the English version...

BR,
Christian

Well that's embarrassing. Well, I hope to meet all of the Christians, both ones I've met and ones I've yet to meet!

To get back on topic, my first pickups will hopefully be Covert and/or Dadaocheng, but it'll depend how hungover I am.

Probably nothing. I'm not interested in anything obscure, so what I might want is going to be available for the same or cheaper price back at home.

Older games, now that's another story...

I pre-ordered a bunch, but one I'll try to get real quick is a copy of Clank. However I'll show up at friday so it'll probably be sold out before I get there shake

I'm gonna pickup Crisis first. I preordered the other games that I am (so far) interested in already. Also thinking about getting Covert as this might be sold out pretty quickly as well as they have very limit numbers of copies.

I don't think there is a game that'll be sold out in the first few hours (except maybe from Japon Brand vor TBD?) , so I'll be relaxed and will take the shortest route to get my "must get"-games. Since Heidelberger is closest to the entrance, Dead of Winter: The Long Night will be the first game I'll buy.

No one mentioned The Colonists yet? In that case perhaps I can leisurely walk over to the Lookout/Mayfair stand

Let's just say I hope they still have copies left of my run-to game when the doors open....
There are in fact a few games with 50-150 copies only, no preorders taken this year.

Okay, there might be games you should hurry to, but not on my list, I assume:

Dead of Winter: The Long Night
Ominoes
Cottage Garden
Tiny Epic Galaxies Deluxe Edition (yeah, not new, but I hope they have a deluxe copy for me to grab)
Terraforming Mars (German from Schwerkraft-Verlag, so no need to rush here )
Nautilion
Potion Explosion: The Fifth Ingredient
Mystic Vale
Bohnanza: The Duel
Meduris: Der Ruf der Götter
Cacao: Big Market & Golden Temple&Cacao: Chocolatl – New Storage Spaces
Holmes: Sherlock & Mycroft

If I'm wrong, please tell me where I should run to ninja

I'm so curious about the first rush on thursday. Why are some visitors running ? Are there some incredible "first come first served deals" or games to be sold out in the first hour ??

Any examples of good reasons to run, last years ? (I don't expect anyone to talk about this year, because I'm a fast runner )

Last year the run was also for Dice Tower Live Podcast tickets. They now hand these out first come first served on Friday. They do have more tickets this year... so hopefully it won't be neccessary to run.

Aren't most of their games already sold out during the preorders ?
This year nothing caught my eye in their catalog so I didn't preorder anything
