Manufacturer: LudiCreationsIn Essen, each player is a board game publisher that attends the most prestigious board game fair in the world. At that fair, new board games hit the market, visitors search for their "grail" game, and publishers' fortunes are made. The goal is to attract visitors, sell them games, and make the most money! The Bonus Tiles Pack includes four tiles: CW & WC, Live!, The Press Room, and Waffles & Crepes.
CW & WC: While many forget to eat anything at all, booth staff at ESSEN must occasionally have something to eat. When that happens, options are limited, but a Currywurst stand is never far. Motivated by the semblance of nourishment, morale rises, and the whole booth benefits. However, this is not without sometimes sudden and inevitable consequences...
Live!: Every year there are hundreds of board game geeks who can't make it to ESSEN. These unfortunate souls watch from their computers while the newest games are presented by their designers via a live feed, right from the fair.
The Press Room: In ESSEN, the local and international board game press comes to check out all the new games that publishers have. The publishers must visit the press room, and spend time to promote their games. However, the more crowded it is, the less attention they each get.
Waffles & Crepes: Sometimes, a waffle or a crepe with hazelnut-chocolate spread on it can make up for the paltry salary of booth staff.
