So I just came home from Essen and I spread out my buys just to adore the sight of it. I can't be the only one that does this so please, share... Whether you're at home or still in Essen in a hotelroom somewhere. Let's see the loot.

Sorry about the bad quality.

Yes, thank you for quoting all the posts above so that all the pictures will show up twice on the page thus causing it to load slower....

They could EDIT theirs and append "original" without quotation marks onto the END for their Image ID-Numeral, and I'll remove MINE. "Good enough"?

In this city there are those who'd live alone. Twilight brings them from the gloom into our homes. And hiding there among the wreckage left behind. They see things that aren't there when they close their eyes

My loot from days 1 and 2, no further additions expected.

Nice to meet you!

(I'll bite, twice.)



E Jewelry bought by my girlfriend.
E Army Painter brushes bought by her too, as she loves to paint paintings, though I will no doubt use them for eyes and such on mini's (the smallest detail brush is aptly named "The Psycho")
E Bands for holding together box lids, 6 for 5€ (three sizes).
E Draw bag for the upcoming Arkham Horror LCG.
E Orcs Orcs Orcs for my stepdaughter.
E Justice League: Hero Dice – Batman as a last-minute purchase, though it's been in the back of my mind for a while as a quick solo game.
E Pax Renaissance and expansion because of Eklund, theme and his games tend to sell out quickly.
E Germania Magna: Border in Flames because of theme and beautiful art.
E Railroad Revolution preordered a few days ago, because I love train games that do something different.

Our loot from our two days at Essen Spiel. These are destined for two separate collections, hence the few duplicates you see. The line separating the collections is roughly down the centre of the table, with the right side being mine!

Impulse Purchases:
- A Dog's Life I was suckered in by the cute components. I will probably play it and pass on to my niece as a gift.
- Virus. It will hit the table and we will likely enjoy it, but it was a bit pricey for an un-researched impulse purchase.

Most Pleased with:
- Of Dreams & Shadows. We played it early Thursday morning and found it very enjoyable.
- Pandemic Iberia. I'm a huge Pandemic fan and I know I will love this.
- Dice Tower Panel. We managed to get tickets and really enjoyed the show!

Regrets:
- Picked up promos for Scythe... then realised we already had them as part of the kickstarter.
- Didn't get to playtest HOP!. That game looked like fun!

Demos only:
- Gloomhaven. Wow, looks amazing. Loads of story and play time. Didn't back on kickstarter but will now preorder.
- Secret Weapons of the 3rd Reich. Lovely looking game and I like the history in there. It seems to go in phases (expansion, then resource utilisation). I'm not sure I'll get it but will keep my eye on it.
- Went to check out Nemesis, which is due out next year, and accidentally upended ALL the demo cards all over the floor. Oops!

I have a new set of gaming resolutions for 2017...go hunt them out!!!

A slight intermission in the photos...keep em' coming.

Is this a particularly bad year for thematic/conflict based games as Euros seem very heavy this year?

Or is it a case that companies are starting to target different cons now with their content?

For example are most of the big thematic/conflict games really being aimed for GenCon and more of the Euros are aimed at Essen?

Just curious as this years Essen doesn't seem to hold as much interest for me as have past years.

Has anyone picked up any hot deals in Essen?

Last year, I saw My Village (which was just released at Essen 2015!) for 22 Euro, The Palaces of Carrara for 15 Euro, and Myrmes for 9 Euro, among others.

Terra from Bezier sells for 20 euros and 8 euros is a very sweet deal on Viceroy.

Also wish I was speaking German because you can find crazy prices on sooooo many games. I saw one booth selling Thunderstone Adavance (which is out of print) for 15 euros... It was almost funny to see how many passing by grabbed the box, flipped it to read the backside and put it back in place with a tear in the corner of the eye...
