Thanks for that Marc. I'm afraid it's mostly confirmed my suspicions. Many of the usual suspects and a whole bunch I don't recognise - as I've said before, too many games being produced thanks to Kickstarter, making the meta-game - acquire, cursory play, acquire the next... The library is going to be moulded by the items needing to be expendable, so there'll be surplus copies of popular games and end-of-line copies of failed titles. I saw a few popular family games like Clue(do), Pictionary, Hungry Hungry Hippos, and even Cards Against Humanity, plus the big sellers at the mass-market end of the main hobby - Carcasonne, Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride. The vast bulk in the Euro area and nothing really that I'd travel to Melbourne to play with strangers. Spotted a copy of the Labyrinth game Thrax owns. Also Cacao, a quite successful game designed by Sydney designer Phil Walker-Harding, who also did Sushi-Go - I've played with his brother David (maybe even Cacao once), who runs Grail Games (who published my copy of Circus Flohcati) and has designed some neat little games of his own. There was a Twilight Imperium, which looks like a vast 4X space game which I should like, but is chiefly an overly complicated resource management Euro (snore). (Similar deal as something like Scythe - looks interesting but not - alternate reality WWI Europe with giant steam-powered mechs! It's actually a resource management, victory point generating cardboard Enigma machine with a little bit of area control with over-simplified combat and little manoeuvre because there are only a few areas on the board because they each have to be large enough to accommodate the large minis - modern component styling yet again dictating game-play practicalities.)
On the floor there appeared to be a bunch of roleplaying at the start (D&D I suppose), then some sign of some others of the tournaments - Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan, some Collectable Card Game featuring a spiky-haired manga character (I'm guessing Yu-Gi-Oh!
[not really my area]). Also spotted a strip of Star Wars: X-wing
games on some star field play mats - this is probably the game I'd be most interested in, but I'd likely just be disappointed that it wasn't Star Trek: Attack Wing
and I'd be slaughtered by the fanatics!
