ESSEN SPIEL 2013. Boardgamecafe.net’s back to Essen for this 4-day SPIEL and this report covered the morning session of Day One where we checked out games like Patchistory, Caverna, Origin, Expedition NorthWest Passage, Concept, Coal Baron before we paused for our lunch break.
A replay of GAME ZERO & GAME ONE from our BGC Retreat event last year saw us revisit ORIGIN, MARS NEED MECHANICS, PELOPONNES, AFRICANA, BUCCANEER BONES, ZOOLORETTO DICE.. and MISSION: RED PLANET (?) at OTK Cheras last night.
It’s now time to get into the Retreat proper with the first scoring round in Game One where seven new/recent games were featured; ORIGIN, PACKET ROW, MARS NEED MECHANICS, PERGAMON, PELOPONNES, AMONG THE STARS and AFRICANA.
Read all about MADEIRA in the first play of this Essen 2013 release in Malaysia at OTK last December. Three other Essen 2013 games – BANG THE DICE GAME, ORIGIN and CAPPUCCINO – and some old faves like PUERTO RICO, TICKET TO RIDE. Adios to a great 2013 of gaming!
ORIGIN was on the table tonight while we also bring back an old fave AGE OF EMPIRES III to test out the BUILDER expansion
