The order for the 777 Essen limited edition will be opened on the 15th september at midnight.


Repos have had some sort of giveaway for many of their previous games if bought at Essen. Does anyone have a clue as to what bonus is going to accompany 7 Wonders at Essen? I'm generally not a fan of pre-ordering games these days, but 7 Wonders is pretty high up my list of games to check out (the last couple of years have provided us with some great card games, and I'm hoping that 7W continues the trend).

As previously mentioned elsewhere, the bonus is a 8th wonder... can't remember the details, but it's somewhere !

I had a guide, a Bedouin man, who called me 'Abu el Banat'. And whenever we'd meet another Bedouin, he'd introduce me as Abu el Banat. And the Bedouin would laugh and laugh and offer me a Pint of beer. (cont below)

And I'd go to pay them for the beer and they wouldn't let me. "Abu el Banat" means "father of daughters." They thought the beer was the least they could do.

Will the bonus only be available for pre-orders collected at Essen, or is it possible to have the game posted to you?

The mannenkin pis?

Admittedly being parcial, I think the aqueduct of segovia would have fit better with the rest of the game...

Between all of this ancient Wonders, it seems a little bit ridiculous... the Pyramids, Pathenon, Colossus, The statue of Zeus... and the mannenkin pis?

Which is what I like about this freebie - I don't really want it, so I don't HAVE to buy the game at the fair!

Direct from Asmodee:

Hello,
For now it is only pick up only. We have not decide yet if we will have more for after the convention.

Regards,
Stefan


Looks like we have to wait.

Edit- to clarify, this is exactly what I asked:

I saw the offer for the 7 Wonders Essen pre-order and wanted to know whether that was for pickup only or if it would also be shipped to people who could not make it to Essen?

If I pre-order and don't pick it up, they'll definitely have one left after Essen...devil

Agreed.

What would be nice is if someone could make one that had the same goals, but rethemed with one of the other suggested architectural monuments so we could print it ourselves for those who would prefer it.

Why all the negativity for the Mannekin Pis? I thought it was quite amusing.

Yes, isn't it a wonder that that guy has been pissing for so long already!

Being Indifferent is not the same as being negative.
Some people will go out of their minds if they don't get a freebie thingie made for the game they buy. And in some cases I can understand them. It is often nice to have these little extra items, even if they seldom are particularly useful.

However, there have recently formed a trend where small publishers are issuing bonusses that are on the silly side. Personally I don't care for aliens in my game of medieval farmers (Agricola) or hugely expensive flux generators in a game about profit-earning power plants (Power grid) or a tiny modern statue in a civilization game.

While there basicly isn't any difference between an ancient statue of Rhodes (Colossus) and a modern statue of Belgium (Maneken), I don't like to degrade what little theme my games have.

I think it is a fun gimmick, but not one that I need want to play the game.

Absolutely. If the extra Wonder was something of the grandeur of the Great Wall of China, I could see how it would fit with the rest of the game and I might want it (want, not need). But something modern, left-of-field, and as Mik says, silly, I neither need nor want. It's not that I'm negative about the MP - but as it doesn't fit with the rest of the game, I know that I can safely ignore it.

Apologies for mis-interpreting what you wrote.

I personally would like one but very much doubt I'll ever see it. Part of the cost of living at the far end of the earth

Wowsers - that really was limited. I'm here on Weds, and apparently all the English-language copies have gone! I know have to either buy a French/German edition, or hope that there are English copies elsewhere in the supply pipeline.
