232361 After The Virus
The zombie apocalypse is here! After The Virus is a cooperative deck builder in which you and your friends band together to survive and complete different missions. The 15 included missions form a storyline if played in sequence, but don't expect to survive that easily because the zombies will attack you in ever increasing numbers! Your deck is invaded by more zombies each time it is reshuffled, so you need to search the area deck for useful weapons and other things to help you. Some stuff can be added to your deck while others will stay in your play area, and still other things will be usable only once in the game. To manage your deck and play area well is critical if you are to complete the mission before you are overwhelmed by the zombies!

230802 Azul
Introduced by the Moors, azulejos (originally white and blue ceramic tiles) were fully embraced by the Portuguese when their king Manuel I, on a visit to the Alhambra palace in Southern Spain, was mesmerized by the stunning beauty of the Moorish decorative tiles. The king, awestruck by the interior beauty of the Alhambra, immediately ordered that his own palace in Portugal be decorated with similar wall tiles. As a tile-laying artist, you have been challenged to embellish the walls of the Royal Palace of Evora. In the game Azul, players take turns drafting colored tiles from suppliers to their player board. Later in the round, players score points based on how they've placed their tiles to decorate the palace. Extra points are scored for specific patterns and completing sets; wasted supplies harm the player's score. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

233678 Indian Summer
Indian Summer is the second part of Uwe Rosenberg's puzzle trilogy following 2016's Cottage Garden, and this game is firmly geared towards experienced players. At the heart of the game are puzzle tiles with holes that are placed on individual forest boards to cover up treasures. When players get their hands on these, they gain more options and an edge over their opponents. All that counts in the end is to be the first to cover your forest floor completely with leaves. Stronghold say they can't sell this at Essen. Not sure if I can get it from someone else there.

234946 Liberatores: The Conspiracy to Liberate Rome
In Liberatores: The Conspiracy to Liberate Rome, players are senators that are part of the "Liberatores" secret conspirators of ancient Rome, whose main goal is to kill Julius Caesar. There are three roles: an Agent who wants to save Caesar, some Republicans who want to restore democracy to the Roman Republic, and a Competitor who wants to kill Caesar so he can take over and rule Rome as the next dictator. Players must take one of three main actions on every turn: bribe a citizen to increase the influence of the "Liberatores"; hire a citizen to use their special benefits; or send a citizen to Caesar for income, an action that will increase Caesar's influence. (Note that this is the only way of gaining money in this game.) You may also hire a servant and send it to other players if you think he is the Agent or Competitor; if you guessed right, then their influence will be lowered when the game ends. The game ends after seven rounds. Roles will be revealed, and if the Caesar

225818 Mini Rails
Mini Rails distills the essence of the stock-buying and track-laying game genre into a tight experience that can be finished under an hour. The game includes only two types of actions "Buy Shares" and "Build Tracks" and you must carefully decide how to best use them. You must do each action exactly once per round, and which company you choose affects the turn order on the next round.

At the center of the game is an innovative mechanism called "wheel building". Each player has an action wheel consisting of three rings, with slots for a number of different action discs. Over the course of the game, players try to obtain new discs and manipulate the rings of the wheel to optimize their action selection. Additionally, to ensure their investments bear fruit, they also need to bribe politicians with knowledge. Stronghold say they cannot sell this in Essen. not sure if I can get it from someone else there.

Once you have a highway, you can possibly place one of your ten cars on it.
