This is my perpetual radar. Games will appear and disappear from this list. A reason for disappearing can be loosing interest or finishing writing a preview for the game.
These previews then currently most probably go to this Yellohat preview Spiel 2012 geeklist.

In the past I had previews added to this Yellohat preview Spiel 2011 geeklist.

Please do not forget to thumb this list or the items you like as each thumb gives me the energy to write a next item. Thank you.

Eyeopener
A Key-game that is raved.

Preparation
As per 21th of May there is no rulebook available. I read a brief description.

Game play
A player can place tiles in his own or another player's village. The color of the workers in the bid determine the value of the bid for those tiles. It is a game where resources, additional workers are generated. Some need to be picked up and delivered in order to generate victory points.
The game contains a lot of components. 64 tiles, 141 workers and more.

First thoughts
Key-games seem to be collector items. Game testers tout the game, but isn't that usual?

Availability
This game is produced in a limited run or possibly produced in cooperation with another publisher.
The game can now be pre-ordered at the author for eu40 per copy, Essen pickup.

Conclusion as per 24th May 2012
I preordered.
