For those who will come to the SPIEL in Essen this year:
Link to the superb hall plans from user Alain Baum (DukeOfEarl) in the boardgamegeek-forum.
There are two versions: one A4- and one A3-version.

The best entrance (in my opinion) is entrance West. This will lead you to hall 3 and quickly to the Hans im Glück booth - right above the Kosmos booth.
This year the CundCo booth is in hall 7.


And additionally: an overview with some helpful links with information about the SPIEL (from user Daniel D.) .

Have fun with the preparations  ;D
Looking forward to meet you in Essen!  :(y)

By the way:
if you have questions about the fair, the town Essen, the public transport or something related with the SPIEL be free to ask me (post or PM).
I will try to be helpful.

A few months ago I had the idea of building carpools from the fair to the Fan-Meeting in the evening.

Perhaps you could write, if you are coming by car or with public transport and need a hitchhike.
Then we could build carpools or could drive in a convoi from the fair to the Fan-Meeting.
Are these the CarcC-members coming to the SPIEL and the Fan-Meeting this year: Decar, MrNumbers, Skane, danisthirty, JT Atomico?

Thanks for all the useful information Benny!

I think our hotel is 1/2way between the messe and the fanmeeting.  In theory it's walkable but not sure how easy parking a car at the hotel.

I am really jealous of you guys. I wish I could be there and come back with my hands full of things.

Enjoy the Spiel!!

We (I and Skane) will go to the Fan-meeting by car, but we will start from our hotel, which is 17 km away from the restaurant (at first we need do bring at the hotel two other friends, which won't go to the Fan-meeting).

I am also coming to Essen, though not for the fan meeting on Thursday. I will arrive by train at about 8pm on Friday night and I'm staying at a hotel near Essen West station and about 45 minutes' walk from the fair. I am happy to walk to the fair on Saturday but if someone offers me a lift, I probably wouldn't say no! :) Especially on the way home when I might have lots of games with me! Saturday will probably be my only day at the fair, then I'll likely return home on Sunday at about 10-11am.

If anyone is keen to meet up and maybe play some games on Friday night or Saturday night, or at the fair on Saturday, that would be great!

***TIP***

You can buy your ticket for Spiel at the Tourist Information office across the street from the Central Station. This way you can avoid long lines at the Messe.

Despite all my efforts, I can't make it to Essen for yet another year :-(

Oh well if there is a special tile for Spiel I shall have to try and pick it up online.

The new around-the-world spin off:  The Amazonas.
A new mini expansion : The watch tower

The new star wars expansions and Abbey and Mayor are already available.
Speculation there will also be:  A new Big Box for the new artwork.  The Japanese monasteries.

Has there been new expansions added to this list? Such as a mini Amazonas expansion?

Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to make it to Spiel after all. I don't have enough holiday left this year to make it work. :(

I hope you all have a great time. I look forward to seeing the photos and hearing the stories! :green-meeple:

Hi JT Atomico,
does it mean you can't come to the evening event on Thursday?
