Nice video, thanks! It is nice that you put all the categories in (already played, new, demo) and separated them. Super! 🙂
I'm so excited for Woodcraft and Starship Captains. Hope they make it to the US quickly after Essen!
So glad you both enjoyed Lacrimosa so much!! Looking forward to your review 💙
I’m most excited for Woodcraft. I had not heard of Unconscious Mind before but now I need it! Love the theme and artwork
No mention of Mists over Carcassonne? 😊
I met Kevin at Gen Con. So nice and genuine. Instantly bumped up to one of my favorite people in the community. I cannot wait for the Lacrimosa review. I’m super excited for that one.
You should check out Revive!
That’s some nice lists. I do miss two titles though. On the Demo list La Famiglia is the number one one my list at least and on the list for games available but not played Planet B is missing.
How could you leave off uno legacy?
I’m really curious about Woodcraft!
Btw “boite” from La boite de jeu is pronounced Bwawt 🙂 Their name means the game box 🙂
Wordcraft and starship Captains can be preordered for Essen pick-up if anyone‘s interested and going to Essen.
I got to try a demo round of Atiwa at a German Con and wasn’t impressed. It’s classic Uwe Rosenberg, plant stuff, feed your families, gather resources, nothing new or exciting. However you will feel right at home if you love all his other big games.
Finally! I very much anticipated people talking about Essen. Good Job. Thank you
It feels so surreal to se my game (Starship Captains) on this list!
Sorry but two adds every two minutes is to much for me. Unwatchable guys.
Thanks for the mention of Sagrada: Glory!!
Did you see/play The Fox Experiment from Pandasaurus, and if yes what do you think of it?
Just pre-ordered Woodcraft today cause it's on most people's most anticipated list and I don't want to have to fight for a copy when it does come out lol Liked your list, was very balanced in styles, themes, etc.
Thanks for the list. It's kind of a downer to realize that most games from GenCon aren't even available and now the games from Essen are being hyped (are the games from last year's shows even all available yet?). It is impossible to catch up in this hobby, and reviews are starting to be as much as 6 months in advance of actual release. Its my feeling that this will eventually catch up with the industry, and cause big problems for it. In many ways, it already is. I hope this all gets figured out someday – soon.
No Frosthaven on those lists 😮
