Which is to say I'm safely back from Essen, with a small ton of games, distributed my prototypes to interested recipients, a somewhat higher sleep deficit than what I went out with and have generally hand a pretty good time.
I didn't find many spooky games for my games day, admittedly. I'm inclined to ditch the spooky theme and change it to 'things from Essen I want to bounce about'. It'll probably end up being the latter anyway ;)
Now all I need to do is to get my house into order with all the new stuff I've *ahem* discovered at Spiel. *bounce*.
 Over 20kgs, although this was probably skewed by the box of poker chips
 Or at least recipients who did a reasonable job of looking interested
