Father in the Messe: the day after

Hi all,

me and Caterina are back home safe. Was a great Essen 2012. Of course we are been able to only scratch the surface of the iceberg of the Essen release and we have still a lot to play.

Tomorrow we will publish our Essen top 10.

I have also edited the past articles adding titles and making some small editing (but don’t worry, they are still wrote in Ligish and not in real current English!)

Despite the fact I write about games for Fantascienza.com, the Italian greatest portal and web-site about sci-fiction (here my preview article of Essen sci-fiction releases) I wasn’t able to play any sci-fi games during the Spiele because Caterina really likes Fantasy but she is not interested in sci-fi … too bad!

Here the list of the Essen games we have bring back at home.

Air King
Al Rashid
Ark & Noah
Card City
Central Market
Costruction Building
Dungeon Lords Festival Season
Fairy Land
Food Chain
Jungle Brunch
La Loire
Libertalia *
Out of Gears
Potion-Making: Practice + 2 exp
Robinson Crosue
Rumble in the Dungeon
PHantom League: Captains *
Samurai Sword
Seasons *
Shadows over Camelot: the Card game
Sheepland *
Swordfish *
Tea Time
The Convoy

(* games I got before Essen)

and I have already pre-ordered some interesting title already announced with Italian editions like Ginkgopolis or Suburbia.

I have decided that is much more better for me to grab in Essen just the minimum needed to satisfy my compulsive obsession and than order from home what I really need.

Good play and we will be back tomoorrow with our Essen top 10

  2. Actually I have a games house since It’s a long time my games were able to be confined in a single room. I have games on stairs, in the bedrooms and all around. Anyway it will be no bad to have also some of this boxes at home!

    I think I’ll be able to play Spellbound the next week. Thank to his huge size (and weight) I been in trouble at the airport. Luckily the lady at the check-in, I think thanks to Caterina presence, closed one eyes to the 0.8 kg over the maximum allowed!

    See you next year or, if you plan to attend, at PLAY: The Games Festival in April
