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.

The expansions for CoC made the inaugural Sci-Fi/Horror list.

Will this fourth deluxe expansion put it back there, or is the CoC series starting to play out?

I didn't Kickstart this one, but I did think long and hard about it.

The biggest downside for me was 2-4 players, as we usually have 5 or 6.

Still, I'm keeping an eye on it.

Jolly Roger Games is republishing this long-out-of-print Avalon Hill title. (Technically it's originally a Fata Morgana title, but it gained popularity under Avalon Hill)

According to an October update, artwork is well under way, and a Kickstarter is planned once the reprint is far enough along.

This was a PnP, but it has recently embarked upon a Kickstarter for a professional publication.

A scifi game where you play an agent out hunting crime bosses, dodging assassins, and looking for rogue androids in a gritty, rundown city. You have to compete with your fellow agents to bring in the most crime bosses, defuse bombs, defend yourself from gangs, recruit informants, while upgrading your gear. In the advanced game it adds a traitor element so some players can be androids out to take down the city.

I was able to review an early rulebook for it, and was very impressed. It has a bunch of custom dice and the city is modular so it is different each game. Really looking forward to this release.

This is listed as a 2012 title and may be out in Europe, but it doesn't seem to be available that I can see in North America. I'm hoping for a wider release of this and hoping it lives up to its predecessor, Jambo. (And any artwork by Michael Menzel gets my attention. He does the most beautiful boards.)

Beautiful game from Fred MacKenzie that has been quite popular in its prototype form!

Designer Tory Niemann takes on the Alaskan gold rush with a promising worker placement style game. Looking forward to this one in 2013!

While Taluva seems to be available in Europe again through Ferti, a French company, availability in the U.S. is slim to none. At least I've not seen the new reprint anywhere here. Talk is that it may be available in 2013. We shall see.

Very first Board game I backed on Kickstarter. Should be a great game for fans of slasher films.
