The Game Pit: Episode 75 - Essen Spiel ‘16 Live Report

October 14th, 2016
With Ronan lamenting at home, Sean and Natalie make a daring raid on Essen Spiel 2016 and in this episode they quickly run through their first day.

We have some news from the publishers display area with some games to keep your eyes open for and we have three mini reviews on the games we played on the first day. These are Lorenzo il Magnifico, Fabled Fruit and Zauberei hoch drei (Wizardry to the Power of Three).

Finally Sean and Natalie give their big wish and name the game that they will hunt down first at Spiel.
