While we’re currently working on our complete “wishlist” for Essen 2013, below a peek on a couple of games that we’re really looking forward to. Why share this now ? We realized that some people are actually preparing their very own list of games to look after at Essen !
What is Essen all about ? It’s the biggest boardgaming (yearly) event in Europe. It takes place in a huge exhibition hall: Messe Essen.
Our goal is not to give you a full exhaustive list of games that will come out for Essen, but a peek on what we believe to be games to look out for.
Banjooli Xeet is a small & familial race game with some fun looking ostrich theme and some dices to gamble. Could be a lot of fun with some kids.
The author Diego Ibañez is from Equador who published Las Torres de Zoraida (he was finalist from the contest Creación de juegos Ciudad de Granollers). Curious about how the game looks like; have a look on the “open the box” youtube video from 5 minutos por jeugo. Have also a look at the Boardgamesgeek page for more information (did you notice the average rating given is 7.38/10).
