What games are you excited to see from Essen Spiel?

I saw that On Mars is now officially for sale and it still has such beautiful box art that it's hard to stay away.

The box art for On Mars is staggeringly evocative.

Vital Lacerda and Ian O’toole always kill the art game with their designs!

This one is especially good. I could almost have that as a poster in my game area.

I am definitely more partial to their work on Vinhos and Lisboa but On Mars does look pretty! The meeples are pretty dope!

I heard about this game Yin Yang from Heavy Cardboards overview of Essen. I know nothing about the game but it looks VERY pretty. Check it out! Yin Yang

I typically get excited post game conventions after all the hype is built up! I should check some stuff out pre-con though

That one is one I'd like a friend to get and teach me lol. I was excited to see So, You Have Been Eaten but I've seen posts that its supposedly not even being demoed that this point.

I love Scott Almes' games, and this looks to be no exception! I'm especially excited for the 0-player mode haha I will definitely do that as my first game...to learn, of course :)

So, You Have Been Eaten - I've been curious about this one too. They did a great job with marketing because the title and game description alone seem to be grabbing everyone's attention/interest haha

That would be really cool :) I'll see what I can do!

Do it! Actually I was surprised that there wasn’t more coverage this one coming from Essen.
