Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Back in Essen

Published: Saturday 2010-10-23.

Once again I am back in Essen, at this year’s edition of the game fair. Much looks like it did last time, it is mostly the same publishers that exhibit every year, at least of the bigger ones, even if many of the games are new. I tried to control myself and not buy as much this year. I did say that last year as well, but I think I have managed to succeed a bit better at it this year.

In three days I have bought three bigger games, Mousquetaries de Roy, Genesis and 20th Century. Additionally I have found a couple of Danish children’s games for kids from around two and a half years (you need to start in time), in the Little Storm series. They seem to fit target audience fine. I also bought the card game Total Rumble, mostly because the guy who demoed it was nice, and that it has wrestling as a theme. Right, I also bought the Japanese game Bus Stop: The Board Game, which was fairly entertaining.

Hur många år dröjer det innan något av dina spel presenteras på mässan? :) Jo, jag frågade förra året också om du har några egna spel på gång.
