Three brilliant games we discovered at Essen
#Essen2016 is over! :'(
But it's all good in the board game good, because while I weep gently over my tiny violins, you get to see all the awesome little gems and indie games we found at the fair!
For the big hitters and obviously-going-to-be-popular board games, you can read more in our previous Essen blog post. These games will be duly released, and you'll see them in the shop at some point soon, no doubt.
But these - these, my friends, are the three golden nuggets of Essen.
For a bigger list of Essen games, keep an eye out in the next few days!
When I Dream
In When I Dream, one player takes the role of the Dreamer and "falls asleep", wearing a cloth mask. The other players are secretly dealt their role cards determining what kind of spirits they are: "good" or "naughty" or if they are just "tricksters" changing sides as the game goes by...
In Kingdomino, you are a Lord seeking new lands in which to expand your kingdom. You must explore all the lands, wheat fields, lakes, and mountains in order to spot the best plots. But be careful as some other Lords also covet these lands...
DEER LORD! is a bizarre and ingenious party game where you have to 'do things' without being accused by the other players. Be sneaky, act crazy, manipulate the group and get creative if you want to win!
We're super excited about the three listed above, but we found many more games in our German travels - keep an eye out in the next few days for further news...
