Essen Preview #20 – Updated Not making it to Essen List

In years past, I have have focused on games that will making an appearance at Essen.  One of the other things I have usually tracked, but haven’t spent much time writing about, are the games that aren’t going to make it…  With the help of fellow OG-mate Jonathan Franklin, I’m trying to make an updated list of the games not making it to Essen in purchasable form.

The first set of entries was made 9/12.  This update is dated 9/30.  I will try to append dates to any further entries as I update the list.  This certainly can be a community project – if there are other games that you know of that will not make Essen, post them in the comments and we’ll update the page as needed!

  • Agricola Cave Farmers – ?Lookout (9/30)
  • Battle of Red Cliffs (9/30)
  • Belgium 1831 (9/30)
