Shelley and I spend this week looking at two games that will be readily available at Essen in a couple of weeks (though AEG's has been out in the US for a month or so) as well as previewing the three smaller halls at the Essen Fair coming up.

Shelley and I get a chance to talk about the new Bezier revamp of Jeff Allers called New York Slice, then have a great time playing What's Your Game's fantastic Essen 2016 release Railroad Revolution.

Shelley and I tackle the dice version of Race for the Galaxy (Huang and Lehmann's ROLL For The Galaxy) and then head to South America for some precursor to chocolate in Cacao.

A solo show once again (what was I thinking? I'm OK on my own, but Shelley adds a perfect counter balance). This time it's Schacht, Teuber, and Kramer. BTW, I still have Web of Power and China on the shelf, as well as Anno 1503, but Hacienda went away a LONG time ago.

Shelley and I get Trains and its first Map Expansion to the table for a conversation on deck building with the addition of play to a board, then try out two from last year's Essen as well.
