Essen Import Party

SPIEL '17 in Essen is the biggest international trade show for board games.  Many new titles are released at this show and we travel to Essen to purchase and ship back some of the best.  Many of these titles will be released in the US later in 2017 or even 2018, but some will never come over.

When will these games be here?

They have arrived now!  You can pick them up any time.

Can I buy these games?

Limited quantities of these titles will be available for Pre-Order.  These items are for in-store pickup only and will be available starting at our "Essen Imports Party" (date TBA, depending on shipping & customs). We will hold copies of each game for the event, so even if PreOrders are sold-out there will be an opportunity to buy them in store.

Can I demo these games?

Copies of these games will also be in our library so you can come demo them anytime during or following the party.
