It would be a longer list if I could find time to play the ones I have already...

Saints in Armor
Fading Glory

...based on some of the other lists in this thread, of course, I suspect that available playing time is not a primary consideration for other pre-orderers.

EDIT: I may have to eat some crow because I just added preorders for:

D-Day at Peleliu
D-Day at Tarawa

Hmm, I'd better get playing, I suppose....

EDIT, part deux:

D-Day at Omaha Beach
Revolt and Revolution
Commands & Colors: Ancients Expansion Pack #2 & #3

I am really grooving on purpose-built solitaire games right now, thanks to discovering the VPG States of Siege games. Falling farther behind...

There are two kinds of ships: Submarines, and Targets.

I've got 6 on my list:

The Battle for Normandy Expansion
The Battle for Sicily
Virgin Queen
Ardennes '44
Dominant Species: The Card Game
The Hunters: German U-Boats at War, 1939-43

The first 2 are to quench my appetite for monster games, and the last to further trick out my collection of submarine warfare games. The rest? Guilty pleasures!

Edited to add one game I forgot. It looks like this one will never get there: Operation Mercury. What's the deal with this?

Surprisingly few at the moment:

Won by the Sword
Enemy Action: Ardennes
Kawaguchi's Gamble: Edson's Ridge

In part, this is because I've currently got some excellent games that I'm playing regularly, which calms the urge to jump into the collection aspect of the hobby.

Ardennes '44
Fading Glory
Supreme Commander
and The Hunters

but I'm trying to focus on the games I have that haven't been played or have only been played once. I have more than enough to keep me busy for awhile. So I'm trying my hardest to keep orders and purchases low - to no avail.

Is it just me or are tons of great looking games coming out?

Kawaguchi's Gamble

Edit: Add -
Reds
Drive On Paris
Fallschirmjager

Almost forgot I have this also on pre-order...
Festung Budapest

Andean Abyss, Ardennes '44, The Hunters: German U-Boats at War, 1939-43 and Navajo Wars, though I don't expect to see NW in 2012... And Kawaguchi's Gamble! I forgot about it until I saw it in another list. After a year or two, it's easy to forget.

There is no emotion, there is peace. There is no ignorance, there is knowledge. There is no passion, there is serenity. There is no death, there is the Force.

The only one I have at this point is Thunderbolt/Apache Leader, but if I start getting hours at my new job then this may change ninja.

Edit: Well, I haven't gotten hours yet, but I have preordered The Hunters: German U-Boats at War, 1939-43 and Navajo Wars...Thanks a lot, BGG!

Edit 2: Dangit BGG. They Decision Games just announced a reprint of D-Day at Omaha Beach, so I pledged for that and the other two coming out in the series; D-Day at Peleliu and D-Day at Tarawa

You know, some of you could've saved some time if you'd posted in the "What wargame preorders do you NOT have" thread instead.

(I only have one, Red Winter: The Soviet Attack at Tolvajärvi, Finland – 8-12 December 1939. I need to get more play out of the games I have first!)

I play wargames solo, so currently have the following on pre-order (I haven't done very well at finding the time to play the last few games I got, but despite my best intentions to not pre-order anything until I'd played those, I weakened...)

D-Day Dice - really like the look of this
Navajo Wars - I like the different theme of this
Enemy Action: Ardennes - the mechanics of this sound very interesting
The Hunters: German U-Boats at War, 1939-43 - the AAR I've read on consimworld sounded amazing
Andean Abyss - interesting theme, and great AAR's
Legion of Honor - no idea if / when this will ever come out, but...

Hoping that ASL Rising Sun will also be released this year.

But wait! You can do both! Let the pre-orders sit on a shelf for a year. Next year, they become the games you own that you need to get more play out of. Don't think of pre-orders as games you will play, but as games you will complain about not playing!
