Episode 193 – Top Essen Spiel Releases

This week, Anthony and Chris look at the hottest games from the Essen Spiel Geekbuzz list – discussing why they were hot, when and if we’ll get a chance to play them, and what we’re most excited to try. 

Before we dive in, we look out our question of the week, discussing the answers our listeners gave to our question, “What’s your favorite game that’s at least 20 years old?”

After this, for our acquisition disorders Anthony looks at Skulk Hollow from Pencil First Games, now on Kickstarter, and Chris looks at a recent Essen Spiel game, Kingdom Defenders.

Reviewed at the table this week, Anthony looks at Dice Settlers, a new bag building game from David Turczi, and Chris looks at Wallet: Organized Crime at its Best, and Age of Thieves. 

Finally, in our feature, we’re looking at the top games from Essen Spiel and what we’re most excited to try when they finally hit stateside.
