And so it begins…
Our second Spiel, our second trip to the European board game Walhalla, our second chance to go deep into the heart of all that is fun at the chaos called Essen.
How are you all doing? We had a rough week with one of the kids being ill and one having her continued trouble sleeping. Before we noticed a week without any noticeable gaming went by. But let’s return to the present, with Essen around the corner, there is a lot going on and a lot of gaming hours on the horizon.
Most anticipated games on the interwebs
Let’s put the Top 10’s next to each other and see what the hotness is all about.
|1.||Charterstone||Clans of Caledonia|
|4.||Gaia Project||Dinosaur Island|
|6.||Agra||Wasteland Express Delivery Service|
|7.||Clans of Caledonia||Agra|
|9.||Fast Forward: FLEE||Ex Libris|
So these are the ones getting all the love and all the attention. There is quite some overlap on some of those, but we do see differences in them too. Are any of these on your lists? I will highlight them in the upcoming blog in more detail.
Our own too big and too long list of needs…
Preorders for Essen which I made till this date
The Climbers, Agra, Maria, Wir Sind Das Volk with the 2+2 expansion, Supply Lines of the American Revolution: The Northern Theater, 1775-1777. (I know right, that name is hilarious, just love HollandSpiele for these geeky things) and London
Games I want to check out and are on our (too big of a) list
As you may notice, there are still a lot of titles on it and we need to sort things out a little more. Upcoming days I will go into more details about the why we want game x or why we are still on the fence about some other.
Thanks for reading and as always, love your board game life!
