I couldn't find zman booth this year. On map they are marked in the northern part of Hall 3 - there were some tables in there and some games, but no shop. Where it is located now?

I asked the guy who sat there, he said I could find the z-man games at the asmodee shops in hall 1 or 3.

The Z-Man games can be bought in the Asmodee shop, in the southern part of hall 3.
I had the same question, so I asked somebody of Z-Man at their boot.

Edit: I suppose this is what they call being ninja'd ?

Alright, thanks. Any idea where I can possibly find Nautillion and the new expansion to Tragedy Looper? I'm pretty sure they weren't available in Asmodee shop.

Nautillon was in the asmodee shop but a bit hidden - look at the shelves on the left near the tills.

hoping for.

Nautilion isn't in the shop in Hall 3 but in the one in Hall 1.

Do you know if the Asomdee stand takes card or is it cash only?

German edition of Feast for Odin at Essen - €60.

Z-man edition of Feast for Odin at Essen - €100.

Z-Man games can get stuffed if that's their idea of bringing their games to Essen. I spent my money at Maufair, where the English edition of The Colonists was only €5 more than the German (€70 versus €65). I'm only buying one expensive game, so Z-man missed out on a sale.

.

A Dutch edition can be acquired at SPIEL for just over €50. Did the zman version travel via the USA? That could explain some of the price difference.

€40 difference cannot be justified by shipping and I am annoyed I was charged €100 for the game as when I asked one of the staff they said €60 and I didn't bother to check at the counter (bought a number of games and paid by card during a busy period). They also gave me a French copy of Nautilion when I asked for English.

Not happy Zman...

Feuerland had tons of English copies of Feast for Odin for 60 euros, at least on Thursday, so that is where I went first. However, my box says Z-man on it. I don't care, but I think it is interesting that if the print editions are the same at both stands, one would assume they came from the same printing, which begs the question of why the vast difference in price.

Asmodee changed their mind and started selling Feast for Odin at 60 euros in English on Friday.

Has somebody seen the Tragedy Loopeer expansion somewhere in the meantime? I'm still loking.
I talked to a few people at the Asmodee shops on Thursday, they told me the deal to aquire Z-Man was made last minute before the fair, so they had to combine the two shop's stocks last minute, too and did not know where some games were in storage. They even tried to order the expansion from storage, but it did not turn up.

I was looking for Tragedy Looper and its expansion but the Asmodee staff confirmed they did not have it. A bit of a disappointment...

Otherwise, I am happy I could grab Pandemic Cthulhu.

Not that it helps now, but did anyone see Sylvion with the show only expansion pack? I also only saw Nautilon in French (in the English section of the shop) in Hall 1.
As you said above, no tragedy looper expansions, and I didn't see Urbion or any of the others.
Very disappointed (unless they all sold out Thursday, or were in the shop in Hall 3). Had planned to buy 4 or 5 things from them, and got nothing.

Asmodee only had Nautilion in the two shops, nothing else from the Oniverse. The English and Franch versions of Nautilion were directly next to each other in the shop in Hall 3.

No Sylvion/Urbion anywhere. Nautilion EN was in shop in Hall 3.

In general, I think that the lack of Z-Man shop on fair and merge with Asmodee shop was a poor solution, probably created in a hurry. The end result was very disappointing.

FWIW, Tim, you can order Sylvion from PL online shops, some still have it. No-mini expansions, though, they're exclusive for Zman.
