Another year has once again come and gone... the Merchant of Venus dispute that caused two separate entries last year has been resolved, and it seems there are still quite a few from last year's list that I have yet to pick up and/or play... namely Merchant of Venus, Rex: Final Days of an Empire, and Vinhos.

Several others that looked promising for this year suffered production delays such as Kings of Air and Steam and The Guns of Gettysburg. As disappointing as a delay is, it just means they get to come back on the list a second year.

Yet others like Exile Sun, FrankenDie made it onto the shelves, but alas, not on to the gaming table.

Unfortunately, once again I think more made it onto the shelves than on the table.

For the last three years I have found a number of great games through this most informal and unofficial process... so, here it is again, back for a fourth year. As in past years, this will be a two-stage process... a nominations phase and a final voting phase.

So, without further ado I would like to once again open nominations for this very in-formal and un-official contest to determine the 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2013.

Key Dates:
Nominations Open: Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Nominations Close: Wednesday, January 2, 2013
Voting Begins: Thursday, January 3, 2013
Voting Ends: Saturday, January 12, 2013

Nominations
To nominate a game add it to this geeklist with one or more categories using the category tags below. Please add a short note stating why it is anticipated that the game will ship in 2013. Feel free to suggest new categories.

Nomination name
Nominations may not have a BGG entry yet, or you may want to change the nomination name to indicate a specific edition.

To do so, put the nomination name inside of altname tags such as:
[altname]Favorite game - Unnamed expansion[/altname]

To second a nomination thumb its entry.

The top 50 nominations will be entered into the final vote for the top 20.


Nomination Categories:
Categories will be changed based on the nominations, but tentatively these are the categories I expect us to have (feel free to nominate a game for multiple categories):
* Strategy [category]strategy[/category]
* Family & Children's [category]family[/category]
* Party [category]party[/category]
* Thematic [category]thematic[/category]
* Train [category]train[/category]
* Economic [category]economic[/category]
* Historical & Political [category]historical[/category]
* Science Fiction & Horror [category]scifi[/category]
* Fantasy [category]fantasy[/category]
* Wargame [category]wargame[/category]
* Original / Innovative [category]original[/category]
* Reprint [category]reprint[/category]
* Expansion [category]expansion[/category]
* Print & Play [category]pnp[/category]
* Abstract [category]abstract[/category]

Eligibility
Any newly available game or expansion is eligible if it is reasonably expected to ship in 2013. I know, "reasonably" is a fuzzy word... cest la vie.

Voting
At the conclusion of nominations I will create a poll with the top 50 nominations.

Reprints vs. new editions
Reprints of already released games are not eligible, but new editions are. As with many things in the gaming industry this isn't a crisp line as to how many changes are necessary to distinguish a reprint from a new edition, but several factors to consider are artwork and components.

When nominating a new edition, mention why you think this one is different from the previous edition (not necessarily in detail, something as short as "new components" is sufficient).

Long out-of-print reprints
I would prefer to include games that have been generally unavailable for several years and are receiving a reprint. Again, this is a bit of a fuzzy area, but as an example, if Warhammer Quest or Hero Quest were to be reprinted without changes they would be eligible.

Multiple releases
It is not uncommon for a game printing to have multiple release editions for the EU and US markets (such as Mayfair/Lookout Games and JKLM/Z-Man). Many games are released and available at Essen and then (sometimes much later) released in the US with great anticipation.

For many, I think the "buzz" surrounding an Essen release combined with the general unavailability heightens the anticipation.

I would prefer to include these releases and let the voting determine how anticipant people are.

Limited initial release
I would also prefer to include games that had a limited initial release and are preparing for a full re-release. Again, this will be a grey area, but one example I would point to is the approach that Treefrog, Winsome, GMT and other publishers take with typically small pre-order releases that sell out quickly and receive a reprint if they perceive that the game was well received.

What is a small or limited release? Again, another gray area that we'll have to deal with as it comes up, as I'm sure a small release for Hasbro is quite different for a small release from most publishers here on BoardGameGeek.

This would also include games that might have had reviewer copies released, but are not yet generally available for purchase.

Other
If the particular game is part of a series (such as the Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game) I may combine multiple nominations into one entry for final voting if it appears as if the series is anticipated rather than a specific release in the series (this was done for the Dominion expansions in 2010).

Also, if there isn't any justification for why a particular game is anticipated to ship in 2013 I may removed it from final voting. This only reason I state this is to separate anticipated 2013 releases from wishlist items. Yes, it would be nice if Hasbro/Avalon Hill reprinted Star Wars: The Queen's Gambit but at this point I don't believe there is any reason to anticipate a 2013 release.

However, in this respect I would prefer to be inclusive rather than exclusive.

Anything else??? We'll wing it... After all, this is just for fun.

aka Equilibrion. Yes, some copies were released as Equilibrion but quickly pulled out from stores; or bought. Now due to copyright reasons the name got changed to Urbion and most likely won't be released in 2012. As of now BGG says that second edition is out, but - from what I know - it's not true.

If it is anywhere near Onirim, we are waiting for a quick yet challenging solitaire card game.

Sorry, but available categories just don't fit this one too good. I suggest cardgame, maybe solitaire?

I was not going to add this because pre-orders on the DVG website are listed at 103 of 250 needed for production. However, DVG just said this game is almost ready to go to the printer. The image is from the original Phantom Leader as there is not an image up yet for the Deluxe version.

This is a solitaire war game focusing on American Air Force/Navy missions over Vietnam. This is a new, deluxe edition of the original title. Numerous changes were made to warrant its inclusion on this list:
d10-1 More pilots available for selection
d10-2 Pilots now get 6 experience levels in stead of 3 in the original game.
d10-3 New aircraft for the Air Force & Navy
d10-4 A new campaign focusing on the Cuban Missile Crisis.
d10-5 More targets and events, and the original campaigns will be modified to take advantage of them.
d10-6 Mounted tactical display.

It should look more akin to Hornet Leader: Carrier Air Operations with the upgraded pilot levels and with all the extra cards as well as the mounted tactical display.


[category]solitaire[/category]
[category]wargame[/category]
[category]reprint[/category]
[category]historical[/category] - More of a game & less of a simulation but I think it's warranted.
[category]strategy[/category] - It's more tactical than strategic, but since strategy isn't defined in this list I'll leave it categorized as such for now.

Announced quite a while ago, but it looks like it might become available in the late spring or early summer 2013.

The concept is like Wings of Glory/Wings of War but with sailing ships, so it takes wind direction direction into account. Plans are for a variety of miniatures from Napoleonic era at first, with more to come later. Back when Wings of War first came out I saw several discussions about trying to create something like this.

This is the one I am most looking forward to!
If I buy only one game next year (and I've been buying fewer, so it might really come to that) this will be it!

OK, I'm also looking forward to this one coming out, (already paid for it on Kickstarter)

Not sure about categories. Clearly a race game, yet not sports.

If you managed to pick up the core game cheap on Amazon's sale there will be a host of expansions in 2013. That probably explains why Amazon was pushing it so hard.

The expansions currently slated are:
Android: Netrunner – Cyber Exodus
Android: Netrunner – A Study in Static

For fans of Talisman, this should be a good year. Not only is Relic based on the Talisman system, but the core game will get another expansion.
