Essen Preview #29 – Mystery Games

Even with the in-depth research everyone is doing, there are always new nuggets.

From the official list found here:

http://www.merz-verlag.com/spiel/NL2011_vs01xbz.pdf

The submissions on this list were made two months ago, so perhaps the games mentioned below do not really exist. Luckily, we know a few people who are there and can find out.

Apparently CBG (Stand 9-21) might have a second game there called Speedway Champion. That might be the second game mentioned in the Infarkt rules.

German RepRap Foundation (4-230) has a 3D game that costs around 700 Euro. called Reprapiprusa

Gigantoskop (4-400) has a game called Primate Fear for 15E

Stratelibri (6-308) has a ton of new things that might be rpg materials (Bookmaker, etc) and boardgames.

Haba games with a 6+ age range are Piratendukaten, Ganovenbande, and ABC-Zauberduell.

Historische Spiele Zander (5-96) has a chunk of unknown games. Might all be abstracts.

Holstein (4-130) has a game Teneriffe that looks like it might be relevant.

Home of Attention (4-107) has at least three very expensive games (over 100 Euro each)

Korea Pavilion has two games by a designer I like (Dong-Hoon Lee) – Dice Age and The Forest. Also there is Luderitz. The most advanced Korean games are 8+

Living Fantasy in Hall 6 (6-512) has a game called Wurfelkrieger for those of you who like to fight with dice.

Rebel (4-311) lists a game, Slavika, about which I know nothing.

Revision Games (5-410 – or maybe 4-410) has two games, Iron Sky and MANIA!. Iron Sky, if the same one, is a proto of a Finnish creation 120 min.

Sensalot (4-229) has a game called Lorrein along with an expansion – looks like a 30-45 min Euro.

Serfer (4-411) has a game Calciotto – I know nothing about it.

Stratak (6-105) has a suite of games – not sure if they are rpgs or boardgames.

Swan-Pandasia has two games that look more challenging – Zombie Town and Emissary Crisis.

TicToys (7-20) has a game Ticayo

  1. More information on Lorrein can be found here: http://www.lorrein.com. The publisher also has it’s own website http://www.sensalot.nl. The main focus of Sensalot is sense (hear, smell, feel etc) games. Both website can be viewed more or less in English but google translate does the rest.

    Sensalot is a Dutch publisher from Zwolle (were I live) and Arthur attended several times our boardgame events in explaning his game.

    He also has a twitter account were he is posting updates! His twitter account: http://twitter.com/#!/Sensalot. Mainly in Dutch unfortunally.

    On twitter he reported that he was informed that the games arrived yesterday.

    The 700 EUR thing from German RepRap isn’t a game but a 3D printer to generate complex game pieces at home.
