Hi everyone,

Looking for Gamers Canberra: Essen Unplugged is next week at the Southern Cross Club, Woden. Essen Unplugged is a boutique event for Canberra gamers to play stacks of new releases and rare titles direct from Essen Spiel. We're also bringing our library of classic titles, lots of retail stock from Essen, and will be raffling off select titles at the end of the event, with every ticketholder automatically in the draw.

Tickets are strictly limited to 100 people per day, with Saturday in particular already 3/4 sold. We'd love to see you there!

You can grab tickets and check out more details, including our full Essen games list here:
http://lfg-aus.com.au/

Also, feel free to drop questions here and I'll answer them ASAP!

And, would love to play Brew Crafters, Cottage Garden, Potion Explosion, Terraforming Mars and The Perfumer. Don't know much about the rest. Some others I've noticed on the website are:-

Adrenaline
Captain Sonar

Nope, they will be new! I believe Corey (designer of Vivarium) will be there Saturday and said he could run through Vivarium with me, so I wont play that on the Friday, but up for anything else Sounds like Friday night may involve either Brew Crafters, Cottage Garden, Potion Explosion, Terraforming Mars and The Perfumer then!

How do we wanna go about catching up ? Stand in a corner and hold a sign ? Anyone can feel free to PM me and we can swap numbers if you like, unless anyone else has some suggestions ? I believe I've only met Kon previously.

Is there any indication of the prices for the new Essen games they are selling at this? Wonder if it is worthwhile just to get Friday night ticket just to buy games as I don't think I'll have time to play games. Well not with my kids with me anyway

That's what I intend to do, they've just posted on Facebook that they will release the full list with price before the opening tomorrow night.

They've posted on their Facebook page a preliminary list, and will be adding to it. Some stock won't be there as it has been delayed.

Shingo, if there is something that you wish to get I can buy it for you, but I won't be going until Saturday.

Neither of those titles were going to be on sale. When the list is updated, if you see something you want, then send me a text.
