I'm looking for reports/blogs from this year's Essen. Links would be greatly appreciated.

So far, I have the old standby and, IMO, one of the best. Kulkmann's Gamebox.

The first paragraph of my report from last year mentions (and gives links to) the 7 non-BGG sources that I used: http://www.columbia.edu/~tir2101/nycgamer-article-Essen06.ht... (or http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/132001 for the comments on it).

It looks like the Fairplay reports will be on their blog (maybe as well as their website).

See http://fairplay-online.blogspot.com/

I wonder whether this thread could be pinned for the next few days, to stop the likely rash of duplicates.

I'm guessing there's not much to report since the fair doesn't open to the public until Thursday.

I imagine Thursday evening will bring a few more.

Hush now.

It was media day today. Why are they called reporters? They are there to report!

Um, not that I am impatient or over-eager or anything

I have a bad feeling that it will only be worse after I have been once.

My thoughts exactly! Media day should be the best day for reports, no?

We should go look!!!
