This is a MUST BUY no matter what, yes I know it is a two player only game BUT it is at least as good as L5R if not better in my opinion.

Thanks FF for the new money sink in my life.

Why is it so far away.soblue

Looks interesting having read the rules BUT not sure if there is anything to it, it might just be OK.

This will be released before Essen but Queen games have a reputation of selling older games cheap.

The rules read like a dream game for me, worker placement, action choosing, engine building.

This is almost a buy without a try.

Mouse Guard, one of my favorite comics.

This is so nearly Mouse Guard the game.

The problem is that I am quite fussy when it comes to Dungeon Hack Games so really need to get my hands on a rule set ASAP.

Living in hope that this is a goodie.

Edit: Now I want this even more, please be good

Some of these AEG games might come off the list once we find out more about them, but I would just like to highlight that they are publishing a lot this year and there all certainly look interesting at the moment and hopefully worth playing!

City creating games seem to be the 'thing' for this year ... like wine creating games in 2010!
I just hope that one of them is worth it (I know Andy has a similar plea!)

I'm sure this game has been in development for 10 years! Let's hope this year it'll finally be at Essen ... If it makes it, I'll certainly want to give it a play, as it's been on my wishlist for 2 years, but I'm not confident ...
