Essen Photojournal: 2019 Edition

Posted Thursday, 24-Oct-2019

Welcome to Day 1 of our annual Essen Spiel photojournal! We’ve got tons of great stuff to show you direct from the show floor.

By Calvin Wong

Obligatory hall shot.

There’s a big pivot towards apps, apparently.

… but nothing endures like the classics.

One of the best parts of Spiel is getting to see games from all over the world and find hidden gems.

Games manufacturers showing off their work, including Roger the Vagabond from Root.


Yes that’s Winterfell from Game of Thrones. Yes it really rotates.

Got to demo On The Undergound. Wasn’t really on my radar but fans of Ticket to Ride and other route building games; pay attention.

Quick demo of the Through the Ages app; with Ancient Vlaada as your guide!

Sanctum in action. God I want this game so bad. A hack and slash RPG in the vein of Diablo and Torchlight.

Quick peek at all the new cards from the new Through The Ages expansion.


From the designer of Kitchen Rush comes Rush MD, a real time game of keeping patients alive long enough to treat them.

Matagot’s Paris: New Eden has a 3D Eiffel Tower with each copy.

And that’s it for Day 1! We’ll be back tomorrow with loads more photos. Follow along at @boardgameprices on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
