Today I’m heading to Helsinki and Helcon. I thought I wouldn’t take a huge load of games with me, but here I go, hauling one large bag and few smaller ones. If things go well, I’ll be able to sell most of those games and I don’t have to take them back. There are only few games Tommy and Stefu wanted me to bring to play, most notably Media Mogul and Victory & Honor.
I’m looking forward to trying some Essen goodies. Mall World is number one, even though I couldn’t care less about the theme. I wish the game was about land development in DDR, as it used to be according to Mik Svellov’s review. Anyway, it should be interesting.
I like simple card games and Geschenkt is about as simple as they get. Sounds very promising and — echoing the sentiments of dozens of gamers — why didn’t I come up with that one?
Hopefully Phil will bring Niagara — I don’t know if I’m keen to play it, but I certainly want to see it. It looks amazing in the pictures.
Tommy’s Roads & Boats will be an object of much drooling and admiration, but I don’t think we’re going to actually play it this time. Some other time…
Those are my main expectations — nobody has Oltremare as far as I know, that would be interesting. Well, no matter what we play, I believe Helcon will be great fun as it was last time.
