Hey guys. I thought I'd start a regular geek list so I could report on what's going on with the IGS line, answer your questions and maybe do a little hustling.

I'll also hope for some feedback on what you might like to see next and even talk about some good games on prepub that have caught me eye.

I'll fill this out and add graphics to the below games as this list grows and with more time.

So here's what's coming up from me in the probable order of production:

This one is coming out in the next Special Ops and is due out any day. I expect next week and you'll be able to buy the MMP mag and this game is included.

This one got great comments from the playtesters and is famous for being Nick Richardson's favorite game (well, famous on consimworld for this...Nick is a vital guy in the MMP cog and fields GTS questions on Consim).

Counters have been delivered to MMP and all proofs have been approved. The next thing to happen is delivery to the MMP warehouse and it starts shipping to prepubbers. Maybe the end of the month (a week or two from today).

Cards have been proofed and approved - so the first step is done and the stopwatch is now going. Cards take the longest so nothing else has been submitted to the printer yet but I expect MMP to ask for it any day.

This one is bundled with Kingdom of Heaven so expect them both out very close to each other...and for updates to apply to both.

Figure the end of March maybe? April?

From 3CG games and a game in the Victory Lost system. We'll be calling it A Victory Complete to confuse everyone...

Getting absolute raves from playtesters.

This one will be in the Special Ops that is out at WBC. Keep a look out. This one will be a winner.

We've posted the rules for proofreading and so you can check it out on the game page here on BGG.

A bit of a hiccup on the counter graphics on this one has delayed things a little bit but we're going and looking at what to do on this.

Not sure how this will deal with the release date so I've slipped it to later summer when it will come out but that can change quickly.

I do have a VASSAL set and really need playtesters and rules readers. Shoot me an email if you'd like to play this one and give me a hand. This one is complex and not for the beer and pretzels crowd.

Probably the next one out after War of the Suns although it hasn't hit prepub yet. Using Mas' graphics and his great design sense, this one is the focus this month and I'll be running a replay of it here.

I can't really think of a smallish, one-mapper on Typhoon that is a really good game so hopefully, it will fill a nice niche even for East Front fanatics that have seen it all. Also stars the Russian counterattack in a separate scenario (and in the campaign game) that makes it really stand out from the competition.

The father of Warriors of God and a game on the Taiheiki epic. Sort of like King Arthur is to the English, this one is about a period that is key to Japanese mythos.

Read about the history here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanboku-chō

I'll be focusing on this one in the March list but if you liked Warriors of God, don't let this one die. An excellent game.

You can prepub here: http://www.multimanpublishing.com/tabid/59/ProductID/93/Defa...

...and if you're on the fence, ask any questions you might have.

A simply great game from David Relloso. Not sure why you guys aren't ordering it...I have never heard as much positive feedback for a game that I have had in the IGS stable before this one.

You can preorder it here: http://www.multimanpublishing.com/tabid/59/ProductID/95/Defa...

A further refinement of the Storm over Stalingrad system and the focus from last month's list. Check it out. I love this game and if we can make the long prepub walk, I have expansions for doing the system on the Eastern/Balkan front and another one on the world and the naval battles.

I'd love to get the chance to make those too.

Another great game from John Poniske. This one got a new boost in orders from a glowing review by fellow BGGer "gittes". Check it out here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/760229/destined-for-grea...

So have a read and don't take my word for it...it's a game worth ordering and having on your table.

Most of my month has been spent on the D-Day game for GTS. Got a bunch of work done and can't wait to show off the art when we get a little closer.

Also, just finishing up draft one of the Doomsday rules and it will be in Andy's (Nunez - my co-designer on this one) hands in the next few days for testing.
