The Japon Brand booth games for Essen 2011, and some of our games from previous years, can now be pre-ordered for pick-up at Essen.

How to pre-order for pick up
Send me a GeekMail with your name, what games you want, and which day you plan to pick up your order.
For orders to be shipped, we handle this by collecting the addresses and then letting Banesto do the shipping and PayPal payment. If you want to order a game for shipping, just send me a mail with your address and what game you want. You'll be contacted by Banesto later.

For the best of all of us, please pick up your order before Saturday noon. We always end the fair with a handful of preorders not having been picked up. It happens, and it's no big deal. However, sometimes these left-over preorders have contained games that other customers have been dying for. We really want to avoid that. We will do our best to hold your preorder for the whole fair, but if the demand for a sold-out game gets too intense (read: a LOT of people ask for it), we might be forced to start letting go of the preorders for that game, as soon as Saturday noon. Please understand.

Preorder ends monday 17th of October, 2011.

Games from previous years:
If you have requests for games from previous years, we have some in the warehouse in Germany (see below), and we'll bring what you order of the others, but it will naturally be a bit limited. Please send me a GM if there's a specific game you're after. We can not, repeat not, bring copies of neither Barbarossa nor El Alamein. Sorry. Also, there are no copies left of String Railway anywhere. It's being released by Asmodee, so you'll have to make do with that.

Kanai Seiji, designer of Master Merchant can bring a limited number of copies of his Mai-Star (geisha-themed card game, €15) and Cheaty Mages! (monster betting card game, €18). His game Chronicle (trick-taking card game with special powers) can be bought (english verison) from Z-man, as can Hayato Kisaragi's Grimoire (simultaneous action selection card game).

For those who want the Japanese version of Grimoire (€18), we have a few copies we can bring, as well as a few copies of Kisaragi's previous game Greedy Kingdoms (simultanous action selection 2-player resource handling card game, €15). GM me if you want any of these games, as we simply won't bring them if they're not ordered. Sorry that the prices have risen since last year, but so has the yen…

So, for the stock in the warehouse we're borrowing in Germany, these are the games that are left. These will be brought to the fair, and you can preorder these too if you want to:

The following games are available in decent quantities (20 or more):
Go-nin-Kan (€6) (Japanese classic card game)
Catch Out (€6) (bluffing-style quick card game)
Aisopos (€3) (abstract fable-themed memory chess)
Witchcraft (€10) (set-collecting who-did-it card game)
Mine out (€18) (resource handling/building tactical board game)
Hau La (€20) (3D building game with foam pieces)

and these games in very limited quantity (10 or less):
Il Cucco (€6) (Italian classic card game)
Nice Middle (€6) (card game where the middle card wins)
Grimpeur Tarot (€6) (Tarot deck)
Hachi-hachi Companion (€45) (classic)
R-eco Recycle (€6) (bluffing hand management card game)
Aisopos: Deluxe (€12) (abstract fable-themed memory chess)
RRR (€16) (abstract 2-player board game)
Busstop (€24) (passenger handling board game)
Truckers 1.5 (€24) (pick-up set collecting board game)

Re: Pre-order for Essen 2011 available now
I'll have to look up on that. For shipping, there are the extra trouble with payment and shipping costs, and I don't know if we have anysystem set up for that. If we can come up with a flat shipping fee and some simply way to pay, maybe. But don't hold your breath; I'll keep you posted.

"Jap / Eng" does mean that the game...
-) can be bought in either language;
-) contains cards and rules in both languages (or language independent cards and rules in both languages);
-) that it is in Japanese but with "translations aids" so that you may learn to play it despite the Japanese texts, relying only on symbols and pictures;
-) something else.

Thanks for the clarification.

"something else". It means the game is separately availabe in Japequanish and Engelsmertz, but one is only available in Essen, Mongolia, on Thursday the 29th of February 2015.

(No, actually, it means the game is bilingual. For games with language independent components I don't even mention language. For games that must use crib sheet/pasteups, I've mentioned "Japanese".)

Thanks.

...and the other question is: "is there any reasons to preoreder?" (rather than just walking to the booth and getting the game(s) there).
Limited quantities?

Well yes, it's if you want to be sure to get the game. We have a bunch, but they can sell out. There are a lot of people buying on thursday and friday, and word goes around fast, so if a game catches on, it might be sold out quickly. Which games will sell out is hard to foresee. Generally, you're safe just coming to the booth, though, unless you plan on coming on saturday.
