The press show. Weds at Essen 

Made it to the press show. 

Right as you walk in, the Mattel booth is there with a full on German sailor choir 

The brettspiel advent calendar in two sizes this year. Same price I think 

7W the duel with a nice setup

Here is Moritz with his new game, First Class. Also has the new star wars carc expansion. Kylo Ren is the new character. 

Mistakos. A game about plastic chair stacking from Trefl. 

Dice stars from Matagot.  A nice dice rolling game where you can choose dice for their color or value.  Fill out a grid on the scoresheet. 

My annual picture with Dr Knizia

Forgot to mention this morning that I was given the very first Great Western Trail off the first pallet! 

Noch mal looks to be the small Schmidt game that I’m bringing home. Roll dice, choose a pair, race to finish columns or colors.  More points for winning 

Herr Menzel with the new Andor

More later… Until your next appointment

    Are all of these being released at Essen or are they just all at the convention in various levels of their release cycle?
    Specifically, is First Class being released?
