Essen 2008 releases

Funagain Games is your home for the latest releases from the Internationale Spieltage the largest consumer show of board games in the world!

As in years past 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 the first time ever you can pre-order these games at Funagain!

In years past Funagain has informed customers when games have arrived, but we have never before offered true pre-orders with pricing this early in the year. 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. There are some special conditions with these pre-orders so please read carefully below to understand how Essen pre-orders will 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. 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. Essen games should arrive shortly after the 1st of November, but 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.

We do not always know whether English rules will be available for the Essen games. We will post this information on the individual product pages as it becomes available.

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