More news from the press conference
Odyssey from ares did not makr the show. Only here in prototype form.
The advent calendar is in a huge box. Which obviously you cannot break down to nest if you want to keep it as a calendar.
Dr knizia dressed up as Captain Black this year
Wits and wagers has a German version and a new game.
Found a new game that I am now trying to figure out if I have enough space for. Www.flickball.dk
Sat down for my first full demo. Internal affairs from capstone hk. An interesting game of deduction with just enough chaos thrown it to keep it interesting.
Also got quick demos of play jeju and aqua park. They also look quite nice.
The annual zoch event was next. A fine spread of food and drink and a really nice chance to sit down and try some of the new games. The big news for me from the event is that Zoch will be moving their headquarters from the Munich area to Nuremberg in 2016 as it has been bought by Noris. It was also very nice that the speech was also simulcast in English.
And here is a basket of the pretzels that I wait all year for.
This is for my son. I get weisswurst for lunch!
When you eat weisswurst, you’re not supposed to eat the casing. You cut it longways and then peel the tasty tasty meat out. . Who would have known?
And if you were a manly man bavarian, you’d not even need a knife and you’d suck the meat out of the end. Zuzeln is the verb that actually describes that meat sucking action.
When you search Zuzeln on Google.dr this is what you get.
Also, you will get derisive looks if you spread sweet mustard on your pretzel. It’s butter or nothing baby.
So one guess who is wearing these shoes.
That’s right, pizza and Slimer.
Hint. He’s got green hair.
Now I’m off to get my buzz on. A beer with sausages at Zoch followed by the beer barrel at Eggert, mead at the fragor booth and then more day days of wonder. Prost!
Oh, at the days of wonder booth, I did discover that Benedict Cumberbatch is one of the models for the new ticket to ride game.
Dinner tonight. Another doner pide. Hey, I know what I like. And fwiw, I didn’t have to order. Just showed up, got a smile from the nice guy behind the counter and doner pide was thrown in the oven.
Also got one of my favorite abd unique German beverages, apfel schorle. Half apple juice and half mineral water.
Time to start punching games to save weight!
Until your next appointment
