Ronan has flown into Essen and the two boys have worked their way round the Spiel halls on the Friday (supervised by Natalie) in order to play, demo and buy a host of games.
Listen as they discuss the merits of all played and lament the amount of games purchased by both despite plans made to avoid such an occurrence.
Ronan will be back at Spiel again on Saturday 10th Oct to man The Dice Tower booth (Hall 7 at 12:00) and bring you the third and final field report.
In this, the last of their Essen previews Sean and Ronan mull over and make predictions on another dozen games including Dilluvia Project, Rattle Battle Grab the Loot, Xenon Profiteer, Mistfall, Guns & Steel, Posthuman and more.Only these two could get in a 'heated discussion' about a game they've never played and one game in particular sets off a barrage of squeaking and indignation.
Now the boys are off to Essen to hopefully play the games they have previewed an more!If you would like to meet up with Ronan and Sean or just say hello, they will be at the Bredenay Hotel on Friday evening (09th Oct) and Ronan will be at the Dice Tower booth in Hall 7 at the Essen Spiel on Saturday (10th Oct) from 12:00 to 13:00/14:00.Also look out for The Game Pit t-shirts as the lads will be wearing them at the Spiel.Please do come and say hello.
