As we mentioned before, the Essen Spiel event is a BIG DEAL to any boardgamer because it’s almost like a launch pad for awesome new boardgames! We’ve talked about how the event itself is considered to be the mecca of boardgaming and even shared with you some of our picks for games coming from Essen that you should watch out for. Of course, since the event happened quite recently, most of us will have to wait for the Essen Spiel Games to come to our shores. BUT!… what if I told you that you can somewhat experience the awesomeness of Essen Spiel 2015 and get to play the Essen Spiel Games earlier than most people here… RIGHT NOW? Hell yes, I said “right now” because, from November 3-8, you CAN at DyceNDyne’s ESSEN SPIEL PH FESTIVAL Event!
DyceNDyne, a boardgame cafe located at Unit 3 Elements @Rosemarie Bldg. Pasig Blvd. (across SeaOil), has brought a TON of amazing games straight from the Essen Spiel 2015 and has made it available for play for the whole of this week and we, at UnGeek, we’re more than thrilled to be there to check out DAY ONE! There were just so many games that we didn’t know where to start! There are various categories as well to suit whatever kind of gamer you are. You into Casual / Light / Party games? Worry not! There are games that you may just like such as SILENT MOON, VOILA, and EXPLODING KITTENS!
If, like me, you’re really itching to play the heavy strategic and immersive games from Essen, then you’re in for a treat as well! Games like PANDEMIC LEGACY and T.I.M.E. STORIES were available for play and I couldn’t wait to check out their gameplay!
And seriously, folks… this is just the tip of the Essen Festival Iceberg! So if you wanna get ahead and try the Essen Boardgames out for yourself, make sure to drop by DyceNDyne anytime this week! If you want to know more details, you can check out the DyceNDyne Facebook Page for any further announcements. Oh… did I mention, you may get boardgame swag for going to the Essen Spiel PH Festival? 😉 See you guys there!
