Back from Essen – Spiel 2013

We are back from Essen with 22 boxes this year Spiel 2013 – this will take us a week or 2 to open, punch-out and read through all the games rules to initiate some “private series” and play with them for the 1st time with our Boardgame Monkeys members.



We started the unboxing yesterday of Legacy – The Testament of Duke De Crecy that we bought from Portal Games in deluxe version + goodies (tokens & 7 special mansion cards), as well as Caverna from Lookout Games that has more than 200 wooden tokens. Since we did not have Agricola in our possession, we rectify this by jumping straight onto Caverna that can be played up to 7 players. Amongst other things, we have the Kickstarter version (full blown add-ons) from Dark Darker Darkest edited by Queen Games, the giant version of Takenoko from Matagot, the deluxe version (limited to 2000 samples) of The Witches from Treefrog Games.

Reviews and details will be provided in the coming weeks (yes, weeks – as we have now a serious stock of games to play, aside of the 10 imported games from the US from 2 weeks ago).
