One of these days I’m going to make it to Essen to see Spiel first hand. Heck, one of these days I’m going to make it to any boardgame convention. What I’ll do in the meantime is continue my Naked Anticipation geeklist over at BGG, which is a reminder list of all the cool looking games coming out at Essen and beyond, into 2017.
There’s a lot of stuff on the list. Not all of it is coming out at Essen, and I’m obviously not going to add all these titles to my collection. I’ve become a lot more discerning about what goes in my collection, since games that enter it are usually slow to get played. Notable games premiering at Spiel are Guilds Of London, A Feast For Odin, The Colonists, and Great Western Trail. These are the perhaps the big boys of the con.
Check out the geeklist above and let me know what you think of some of these games, and let me know if there’s anything I missed over at Twitter.
