Days of Wonder at Essen Spiel’10

Days of Wonder at Essen Spiel'10 For the 8th year in a row, Days of Wonder will once again be featuring all of our new games at Essen Spiel in Germany. Game lovers from all around the world should attend to this gigantic and internationally renowned game show that takes place at the Essen convention center (Messe Essen) from October 21st to the 24th. We welcome you to our booth located in hall 12, number 68.

It will be the perfect occasion for you to see all our latest releases:

 

 

Small World – Be Not Afraid will make its debut at Essen Spiel :
“There are many frightening inhabitants of Small World, but to survive you must Be Not Afraid…! This expansion for Small World includes a nasty lot of five new Races including Barbarians, Homunculi, Pixies, Pygmies, and greedy little Leprechauns. You’ll also get five new Special Powers among which Catapult which allows you to leap over regions to conquer new lands”.

 

 

You’ll also be able to discover Necromancer Island, the spooky expansion for Small World, which will be the ideal Halloween gift to all “Be Not Afraid” buyers at our booth:
“In Necromancer Island, one of the players assumes the role of a dreaded Necromancer who inhabits an island in the center of Small World’s central Lake region. He captures the souls of all Race tokens lost to conquests, using them to progressively spawn Ghosts who invade the surrounding Regions. To make matters worse, his Powers grow as his reach across the land increases. If the Necromancer succeeds in bringing all of his Ghosts into play, anytime before the game’s end, he wins!”

 

Our booth will also be the perfect place to try a game of Small World for iPad. If you never had the chance to try it out,  take a few minutes to play Small World for iPad on our specially designed iPad stands. Or join us for a mini-tournament with a chance to win a copy of Small World board game.

 

And last but not least, the Days of Wonder booth will present the world wide premiere of Winter Wars, the newest Memoir ’44 Expansion:
“As would befit your ration pack if you were about to embark on one of the coldest and most bitter fights of the war, after 5 long years of weary battles, we have packed this expansion with every thing you could ever need to combat in a snow-covered environment.”

And if all the cool new products above are not enough to convince you to  pay us a visit, just be sure to come by and say hi. We’ll be happy to see you at Essen!

      Thanks for the nice review.

      Fwiw, the Mountain penalty of +1 token is implemented, and so is the capacity to abandon an area (but only at the very start of your turn, before you have done any conquests, just like in the board game). Hope this helps.
