Did Keyflower drop, or just not get enough votes?

My images from Essen 2012
Hi,

like every year I have taken a bunch of photos at Essen this year (318 survived the cut). Among the usual shots you will find a lot of images of the setup day as well as many closeups from the new games rooms.

There are two options for watching the images. The Flash version of the gallery is separated into two parts. The HTML5 version has all images in one gallery.

I didn't have the time to go back to the news room and shoot a video of the game tables. Because of that, several games have no name along with the image. Feel free to email me, if you know some names and I will update the text (tell me the gallery number as well as the image number) - andreas@andreasresch.at

Adobe Flash Version
http://andreasresch.at/_vault/galleries/essen2012_01/
http://andreasresch.at/_vault/galleries/essen2012_02/

HTML5 Version
http://andreasresch.at/_vault/galleries/essen2012/

Feel free to share the links. I hope you enjoy my impressions.

Until Essen 2013,
Andreas

We took over 1500+ photos from this (2012) Essen Spiel and have put them together into our Facebook album.

http://blog.boardgamecafe.net/2013/10/14/boardgamecafe-net-e...

If this is the first time in Essen, our write-up of "The Day Before" contains some useful tips on getting around Essen, and to the Convention Halls.

We'll be there again this (leaving this Thu for Paris first) and will be posting updates along the way.

p/s Thread-starter (BASL?), pls add my link to the starting post? TQ
