Essen 2017 Releases

Funagain Games is your home for the latest releases from the Internationale Spieltage, the largest consumer show of strategy board and card games in the world. The show takes place in mid-October in Germany where 800-1,000 new titles are released each year before the Christmas holiday. If you cannot attend (or even if you can), our Essen Mule Service is the fastest and best way to get the new games, many of which will never be released in the US or may take 3-12 months to actually make it into US distribution, if there are even copies left after the show or a second edition is planned.

As in past years, Funagain is traveling to Essen (the city in Germany where the Internationale Spieltage is held every year, and the show's common name to non-Germans) to bring back the newest and best in hobby board games for our customers. You can pre-order these games at Funagain and we will do our best to secure them for you and ship them directly to your home after they arrive by air shipment to our warehouse or deliver them to you at BGG.Con in Dallas at our booth the week before Thanksgiving.

The list of games that are pre-orderable will grow as we receive more pricing information from publishers. So if you see a game that you'd like, but there is currently no price please keep checking back or even better click the "Notify Me" button and we will let you know when we get the needed info from the publisher. It also helps us gauge interest in the various titles for ordering quantity. Many publishers do not have this info as early as we would like, but we keep trying to get the info. There are some special conditions with these pre-orders, so please read carefully below to understand how Essen pre-orders work.

Games from Essen which are on pre-orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. While we strive to fill all pre-orders, sometimes certain games are only available in limited numbers, or not at all. If you want something, pre-order it right away so we know you want it. We refer to the actual pre-orders when we make purchase decisions so you may not get your game if you do not pre-order and tell us. We will make every effort to combine orders placed by customers for multiple Essen games into one shipment.

Because of the nature of international freight shipping, expected arrival dates are approximate only. Unexpected delays could result in their arrival being later. Funagain does everything possible to expedite the arrival of the Essen games, but some factors are beyond our control. Prices on Essen pre-orders are locked in. If our final price ends up being more than the pre-order price, pre-order prices will be honored. If our final price ends up being lower than our pre-order price, the lower price will be honored. The product listings will say if the game is an international edition with English rules or not. Rules are almost always available on the geek.

Do you have a question not answered here? Then send us an e-mail and we'll be happy to answer it!
