I am not sure you can taste a board game convention, but I am so ready to go.
On Wednesday I will be leaving, and on Sunday I will be back with lots of games; more like good games. The mission in itself is not to just hoard games.
However I am prepared. All the halls with the board game exhibitioners have been printed in map format. Based on all the readings of the games I have done (and the list is shorter now) I have now planned the best possible routes. This is done by colour coding the booths based on those games I want to try, I want to buy and have been preordered.
The money are ready; not as many as I would like, but hey – that’s the story of my life 🙂
Passport has been found, and all in all I live up to my PxPxPxPxP training I learned a lot of years ago.
Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance
So leaving Wednesday, picking up Thomas, 6+ hour drive and one ferry and then we are there.
Think I will get some supplies for the trip. Will have to get some Coca Colas. You can drive for a long time on those.
Will bring my iPad and see if I can get some blogging done from Essen Spiel. Should be possible.
One “ugly” downside. My feet are killing me at the moment. Got the brilliant idea to walk 22 km the other day. Blisters on my feet and thighs with muscle ache, but it has until Wednesday morning to go away.
Hope to see a lot of happy people there, hope to play tons of games and get to try some of those you normally never get around to. Especially the oriental board games. Think I am the only one of the three man group that has any sort of passion for those kinda games.
The week after Essen is Fall-week in Denmark; meaning that the schools close for a week. We will have all four kids. Guess what we will be doing?
Excited does not begin to cover how I feel. Wish that all out there have an interest that brings out as much joy as this does to me.
This is my holy grail quest, and I have found the grail. It is in Essen, and I am going there.
