These are the games coming out in 2008 I'm most anxiously awaiting to become available.

Why am I "jones'n" for these games? It may be the prototype photos in the database, the manufacturers description from their website or the fact that a game is finally getting a makeover/reprint after so long out of print.

What else should I be keeping on my radar?
Do you have a favorite or two that you will buy the instant it becomes available?
Is there some reason you will or won't buy a game on this list?


Add the games on YOUR radar and share why you want it so bad.

Among the abstract strategy fans I've met, this game seems to be pretty highly anticipated, because it can be learned in 2 minutes, easily scales between 2 and 8 players, and allows for cooperative attacks.

This one looks fantastic. Unfortunately they are back to square one with the artwork, so it won't be out for a while.

Another game that pretends to be a Civilization in two hours but which most probably will not make it for 2008 as the publisher was bought by Asmodée and they stopped many his projects.

I've been waiting patiently for this to come out. Well, somewhat patiently. A little bit patiently. Um, I've been waiting for it to come out. Uh.. let's try this again.

Ahem. I love Saint Petersburg. I wish it played with five. This expansion makes it play with five and seems to add some pretty interesting stuff as well...

And nobody's allowed to rain on my parade by complaining about cardboard chits. So there.

I'm surprised this one was not in the list. It's going to be a big hit by the end of 2008

This the very last Ystari game published (released april 2008), by Sebastien Pauchon, the author of Yspahan.

I played this at last years BGG con, and I loved it. There's almost no information about people that have played this game, and that's too bad. It felt like a Britania theme, but the game play was very easy to understand and there were lots of great choices available to players.

Another from Winning Moves. This one sounds like a mix of Clans and Survive. Which therefore sounds awesome:

http://www.gamepack.nl/gamepack/nuern-2008-winmoves.html

Quote:
The players portray the angry gods, each with her own secret objective. The gods destroy portions of the island, each one trying to sink as many of the heathens as possible, while protecting her followers, as well as her place of worship, which is hidden in one of the nine portions of the island. Even the gods are not above bluffing a little!

Hopefully this will be out soon, it's already been pushed back a couple times. I'm a huge Arkham fan, and as this is the second big box expansion along with two card expansions, I'll have alot to play with .

Another sweet, pirate themed game. Looks like it's got mechanics that are quite different than Blackbeard, so I'll probably get both.

"Voyage to the Center of the Earth" . . . it's Rudiger Dorn again.

And . . . looks like it might be similar in feel to Emerald, one of my most-played games, also by Dorn.

A game of movie monster mayhem, from the nice people at Privateer Press. I like what they've done with Warmachine and Hordes, but I don't like painting miniatures: Viola! Sure, it's collectible, which is a downer, but if the set is small enough that might be OK.

If nothing else I'll get a ready-made piece of terrain in every pack... cool

For those who appreciate relatively short games for 2.

A revamped version of Roma, with some "bug fixes" (a lot more cards, and rules to lower the power of the Mercator,...).
