With Essen 2016 only a week away, I figured it would probably be a good idea to jump on the bandwagon and shout about some of the stuff that I’m excited about that’ll be released at this year’s event. As ever, because I seem to be evolving into some kind of gaming hipster, I wanted to focus (at least partially) on some of the smaller, more curious releases that will be available in Germany.
For those of you who fear videos, here’s the list in full. This is in publisher name order, not Official Michael Excitement Index order, by the way… I’m equally primed and ready for each one the same.
- Power Grid: The Card Game (2F Spiele)
- X nimmt (Amigo)
- Adrenaline (Czech Games Edition)
- Orleans: Handel und Intrige (dlp games)
- Cottage Garden (Edition Spielwiese)
- Mask of Anubis (GIFT10)
- Oh My Goods! Longsdale in Aufruhr (Lookout / Mayfair)
- Key to the City – London (R&D Games)
- 7 Wonders Duel: Pantheon (Repos)
- Jorvik (Stronghold)
Of course, I’ve not listed a LOT of stuff here – there are over 1000 new releases planned for this year’s show, so there’s no way I can hit everything. However, keep an eye on the site, on the YouTube channel and my Twitter for the latest news from Germany – you can be sure there’ll be a few weird and wonderful things that we’ll be reporting on!
