SPIEL Essen 2015?
« on: August 25, 2015, 12:25:45 AM »
I read elsewhere that Arcane Wonders are planning to be there themselves in some form. Any more details available yet? Will we be able to buy English sets or are all sales done by the German distributor Pegasus as in the previous years?

Last time i was on Essen Spiel, Pegasus spiel were there only. Some english versions was there to buy but because of some other shops, not by Pegasus itself :)
 

If Arcane Wonders will go to essen this year, i think most of us would probably know it at this point :) (Especially me or other European ambassador, as we are little bit crazy into MW :D )

Saturday the 10 of Oktober (same time as Essen) there will be a Mage Wars tournament in Copenhagen at the #34 Viking-Con.

IF we can get hold of an example of Domination and/or Arena we will be happy to do demos before and after the tournament (Friday/Saturday and Sunday)

If anyone is interested we can run spellbook-creation workshops Friday, or let you borrow/try some of the best spellbooks from Gen-con/forums , and naturally just casual play/ 3vs3 etc.

And you can get free accommodation at the school were Viking-con is held. :) Might be cheaper than Essen and hotel even for Germans.

So, is there any chances of grabbing English Promos in Essen? Might BGG have any?

All of them!!

I'm hoping there're booths where I can buy promos, there's a bunch I'd like to try out...

Oooo choices! There are so many awesome promos available that don't exist in German (yet?), but my top three would probably be

Spiked Buckler (where was this originally available? I feel this is the rarest of all)
Gloves of Skill
Wall of Poison Gas

I agree with Gogolski that it would be so cool to be able to buy additional promos, e.g. the AW store promo pack.

Last year I spoke to Zee Garcia from The Dice Tower and he mentioned a possibilty of a Dice Tower Booth this year. I haven't looked it up if they're going to be there, but if they are, maybe they will be selling their kickstarter promo packs... I sure hope so...

I'll see what I can do guys. Though, I certainly won't be able to do all of this.
