Again, after the succesfull and pyrotechnic geeklist about upcoming card games for 2010 and the following (and similarily acclaimed) geeklist about upcoming card games for 2011 it is time to create the new one for 2012.

Again, I'll list - and I'd like you to list - the upcoming card games, expansions for card games, promos for card games and whatever is related to card games which is being published in 2012.

Again (and three...), thanks a lot for any contribution.

UPDATE: Also, you can head here for the 2013 list.

From the game page:
"In front of you lies the untouched soil of Germany. No track is cutting through its plains, no station is telling of the great industrial progress – but you are about to change that.

In Express 01, you can invest in the construction and upgrading of railway lines and build stations for different companies. When you upgrade such a station, you may reassign it to another company. Your main focus is the acquisition of shares, and as soon as shares are issued, trains can run on behalf of the companies. This way money will be distributed to the shareholders and you get new capital. So keep an eye on the other players to earn money or obstruct their opportunities.

The game ends after the round in which a certain number of Base Cards is upgraded or a certain number of decks are used up. The player who managed to gain the most capital wins."

From the game page:
"Welcome to the wild, weird world of FANTASTIQA!

Fantastiqa is a deck-building board game set in a fantastical landscape of dark forests, mist-shrouded highlands, and frozen wastes. As you and your foes journey around the board, you will subdue strange creatures and fulfill fabulous quests.

Each creature you encounter has both an ability and a vulnerability. By playing card symbols to which a creature is vulnerable, you can subdue it and recruit it as an ally. Each creature you defeat is added to your expanding deck of cards, making its special ability into an ability of your own! A defeated Enchantress will wield her beguiling charms to help you overcome wandering Knights. Knights in turn subdue Dragons, adding their fiery breath to your cause. By combining the powers of different creatures you can fulfill curious quests:

Send forth your Rabbits of Unusual Size to Nibble Through the Violin Strings of the Violent Vampire Volnar!
Deploy a party of web-slinging Spiders to String a Bridge Across the Chasm of Chaos!
Send your Dragons and Vampire Bats together on a mission to Ignite the Whisker-Wick'd Candle Guarded by the Ice Cats of Kituviel!
Some of the creatures you encounter carry precious gems, which you can spend to purchase powerful artifacts or to summon mythical beasts to your aid. You begin with a handful of household items, but you will grow in power as you adventure and gather allies! By completing quests you score victory points and claim other special rewards. The board changes every time you play, so prepare for a new, exciting adventure each time you enter the world of Fantastiqa!

FANTASTIQA is easy to learn but challenging to master – a game for families and gamers alike. Additional simplified rules are included for beginners and children.

The components are lavishly illustrated with fine art by Caspar David Friedrich, Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Arthur Rackham, John William Waterhouse, John Bauer, Edward Burne-Jones, Francisco Goya, and others."

This was really hot at one of the current conventions. Definitely a unique theme and very interesting mechanic.

Quote:
Flowers falling from the sky! In FlowerFall, players attempt to form large garden patches containing more of their color flower than their opponents. Each continuous patch will score points at the end of the game. Adding cards to the table is not as simple as placing them down, however. You must carefully drop them, letting them flutter through the air. Skill improves your chances, but the whim of the environment may thwart you.

FlowerFall is a quick, portable game you can play anywhere. The location you're at becomes the terrain!

mbmbmbmbmb
From the game page:
"In Four Taverns, everyone is competing to have the best tavern in the land. And how do you measure success for a tavern? Customers. No, wait – awesome customers who have done great things that inspire others to come drink with them and your tavern. Thus, you're going to support adventurers on their quests to do great things, which will ideally bring renown upon you and your tavern in the end.

In game terms, each player starts with a hand of adventurers and some coins. Two or three quests are laid out face-up, and each quest shows the strength of the adventurer party – in terms of warrior, wizard, cleric and rogue – required to complete the quest. On a turn, you draw two adventurers cards, then play any number of cards (including zero) – paying their costs at the same time – in order to complete quests and gain the income and renown associated with it. When a quest is completed, all other adventurer cards are discarded.

Why not just hold adventurers in hand until you can send out a massive party all at once? Your tavern is tiny at the start of the game, so you need to keep sending out adventurers in order to make room for more. As you gain renown, though, you'll increase the size of your tavern and have room to hold more adventurers in wait. Champions are special adventurers who fulfill two roles at once, and special action cards bring spice to the game play.

The first player to collect twenty renown wins."

Card game about super-heroes.

Currently on Kickstarter.

From the game page:
"Genegrafter is a superhero card and dice game that was designed to be easy to pick up and start playing within minutes but still offer enough complexity so that more advanced players won’t get bored.

The core game is comprised of a deck of 54 cards that include Characters, Abilities, and Events. The goal of the game is to get 7 Trophies into your Trophy Pile before your opponent does.

To do so, you will have to make the best use of your Characters and Abilities as you draw them from the main deck (all players draw from the same deck). Game play is also randomly affected by Event cards that can completely change who is winning or losing."

New card game by Michele Quondam, based on gladiator fights.

From the game page:
"During the Roman Empire, gladiator entertainment was more popular than ever. Fighters from any part of the Empire were included in the shows, including female gladiators, wealthy Roman citizens, and in some case even aristocrats! Now the time has come for you to gain the immortal glory of the Arena. Bid on your skills and on your life, and fight for your honor and fame!

Gladiatori is a card-driven game in which each player assumes the role of a gladiator in the Ancient Roman Empire. Simultaneous action selection drives figure movement on the board. Combat cards give energy to the character actions or are used as hit points. Characters are customizable, and each player has to choose his deck composition, character skills, and participation in the auctions for Arena items. At the end the winner will be determined by victory points – or simply by being the only one left alive!"

mbmbmbmbmb
Military-themed deck-building card game.

From the game page:
"The year is 2021.

Environmental upheavals, accelerated resource depletion, and escalating warfare have destabilized world politics past the point of no return. Political alliances have long since dissolved as each power block struggles for survival.

In this declining world, technological advancement has ground to a halt, while the world’s armed forces make do with the weapons available from bygone decades.

You enter this desperate struggle for survival as the leader of one of the six remaining factions.

Game Design

Global Domination uses the "deck Building" game mechanic used by some popular recent games like Dominion.

Deck building is very cool. It takes all the good and none of the bad from collectible card games. In a deck building game, you lay out the different types of cards on the table, and everyone starts with the same handful of cards. As the game plays, you get to select which cards on the table you wish to add to your individual deck, thus creating your own means of winning the game.

To add an additional decision point, deck building games might come with 20 card types in the box, but you randomly select 12 for any given game. Figuring out the best strategy based on the cards in play, and what your opponents are doing is the challenge.

Global Domination has an Axis and Allies level of difficulty, so it is easily playable by new people or experienced gamers. Each game lasts about 1 to 2 hours and supports 2 to 6 players.

The game also plays very intensely because a game only lasts 6 turns. This means that everyone knows they have to make each turn count.

You score points at the end of each of the 6 game turns, so game play is very intense."

From the game page:
"Glory of the Three Kingdoms is a living deck-building game (LDBG) in which each player takes a role leading an allegiance in the Three Kingdoms period and battles for total victory or for victory points.

As in most deck-building games, player acquire additional cards to add to their decks. In GOTK, player may acquire cards depicting heroes, military, strategy, items, etc., and some cards provide victory points for endgame scoring. Unlike other games of this type, GOTK has a battle phase during which each player secretly deploys military cards (foot soldiers, pikemen, calvary and archers) and battles for Glory. The victor takes a glory token from the defeated player and a free card in the neutral zone. The victor may also capture and recruit the defeated general – or have him beheaded.

When two out of four card decks are depleted, the game ends and the player with the most victory points wins. However, if one allegiance acquired six or more Tiger Tally or all of opponent's glory tokens, the game ends immediately and the allegiance wins.

The first battle theme of GOTK is Guandu, the first major battle in the Three Kingdoms period. The Guandu Core Set, a two-player game, comes with Cao Cao and Yuan Shao allegiances. Lv Bu and Liu Bei allegiances will be available in a future three- and four-player expansion."

This family fun game, looks like it'll be engaging even for experienced gamers/gamer gamers.
Quote:
"Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule!" is a card game of rhyme and reason for kids of all ages.

For a long, long time, goblins and fairies have lived in a magical world right beneath our noses. If you look hard enough, you can find rings of mushrooms, called “fairy rings”, which act as doors between their world and ours. Today, a gang of mischievous goblins escaped from the fairy ring, and it is up to the players to send them back before they cause trouble! But an ancient spell of rhymes which transforms goblins into fairies and fairies into goblins makes this a trickier task than you might think…


I didn't put up all the information about the game, but you can read more at their page.

The new Donald X. Vaccarino's card game !!

Game description from the publisher:

It is the future, and beneath the flickering glow of the sprawling New Angeles skyline, immense corporations seek every advantage in the burgeoning field of synthetic humanoid technology. On the brink of a revolutionary innovation, CyberSolutions Inc. is poised to become the next global powerhouse, threatening the profits of well-established conglomerates Haas-Bioroid and Jinteki – but unfortunately for CyberSolutions, security at their New Angeles branch has just been compromised.

Set in the dystopian future of Android, Infiltration is a tense card game of futuristic larceny in which two to six players take the roles of thieves, competing to steal valuable secrets from a highly secured corporate facility.

The most vital information lies deep within the complex, but each step inward takes you farther from escape. Worse yet, corporate mercenaries are closing in! How long will you push your luck as you avoid security patrols, surpass rival thieves, and try to download the most data before the building is locked down?

72. Board Game: Invasion of the Garden Gnomes [Average Rating:7.50 Unranked]

Reiner Knizia re-publish his old card game Vampire adding new rules and moving it to a weird theme.

From the game page:
"The gnomes are fighting for dominance of the gardens. Gnomes from the lawn, hedge, veggie garden, orchard, flower garden, and herb garden can be recruited to build a ceramic empire.

In Invasion of the Garden Gnomes, players form melds (sets of gnomes from the same part of the garden), each representing a columns of garden gnomes armed to the teeth. The smallest set of each color will be squished and not score, and larger sets score more points. Whenever a new column is formed, a special effect is triggered (usually good). Between games, twelve different special powers are randomly allocated between the six type of gnomes, making for very different games and necessitating different tactics.

This game's core mechanisms are based on Knizia's card game Vampire. Invasion of the Garden Gnomes introduces special powers for each color and more vicious competition within each color of meld. The game includes "junior rules" that allow you to play a game nearly identical to Vampire, and "full rules" that are notably different."

73. Board Game: Jungle Brunch [Average Rating:6.25 Overall Rank:5382]

From the game page:
"In the card game Jungle Brunch, everybody is very hungry, so what food can you find for your animals? You need to find the tastiest food, but watch out for dangerous predators that hope to eat you! Play your cards carefully, escape from the tigers, and keep an eye on the sky in case a vulture is watching you – after all, little animals make a great dessert!

Each player has an identical deck of 22 animal cards; at the start of the game, players shuffle their decks, then draw six cards as a starting hand. Someone shuffles the plant deck, then lays out plants until at least one (regular or famine) card is available for each type of plant and at least 3-7 plant cards are available (with the number depending on the number of players).

Each turn the starting player lays down two cards – one face-up and the other face-down – then each other player does the same. Players then reveal all their cards and work their way down the food chain: Bats attack herbivores, weakening them and making them eat more slowly; snakes scare away the strongest animal; elephants, tigers, buffaloes and monkeys then eat (one card) in order of their strength, from high to low; elephants eat nuts, or bananas if no nuts remain; tigers eat the highest-valued buffalo or monkey; buffaloes eat herbs, then bananas; monkeys eat anything but prefer bananas; warthogs eat last but consume two items; the animal young copy the animal they're played with and eat at the same time; vultures feed on buffaloes and monkeys that are forced to eat famine cards – or any such animal that fed. (They're not that choosey, really.) Animals can also be played in matching pairs, which prevents them from being eaten but restricts them to only one food card.

After the round ends, each player draws two more animal cards from his deck, the plant selection is replenished, then a new round begins, with the player who ate first in the previous round playing first now. As soon as players have only four cards in hand or the plant selection can't be refilled, the game ends, and the player with the most food points wins!"

74. Board Game: Kanzume Goddess [Average Rating:6.71 Overall Rank:2683]

From the game page:
"It was the age of gods and goddess. Zeus, “King of the Gods,” Poseidon, ”Lord of the Seas,” and Hades, “God of the Underworld” had agreed to separate the sky, the ocean, and the underworld. The “Goddess of Wisdom” Athena would take over the rest of the earth. But the Norse gods were displeased by the decision. They called warriors and disciples to take the world from the Greek gods. The gods atop Mt. Olympus also called their warriors to defend them. During this war of the gods, a mass of warriors died, and their souls were sealed in a jar.

And now, they are waiting for you to release them.

Kanzume Goddess is a deck building game. In it you will be one of the Gods of mythology. Each God in the game has their own special powers which players can use to their benefit. Players will purchase cards from the center of the table to add to their decks. They will use these cards to purchase more cards and to do battle with the other players. These cards can be used to damage other players, gain more cards, to draw more cards from your deck, and to protect yourself from damage. The last player with energy left will be the last God standing and the winner of the game.

The game can be played as an Individual Match if you play with 2 to 6 players.
You can also play the game as a Team Match if you play with 4 or 6 players."

75. Board Game: Kill the Overlord [Average Rating:6.16 Overall Rank:3881]

Currently on Kickstarter.

Card game for 4/8 players.

From the game page:
"It's good to be the Overlord. You have minions to grovel at your feet, limitless wealth, and absolute power over all the lands – but you know that your subjects are plotting. They envy your wealth and hope to steal it for themselves, specifically by removing you from the picture.

So you've decided to secure your power and eliminate these individuals by sending your executioner out with orders to kill the first person he meets. Unfortunately, your executioner is a gullible fellow who's extremely enthusiastic about his job – easy to dissuade and misdirect, if you're clever enough.

Who will be the first player with no excuse to miss his own funeral? Once the axe starts swinging, not even the Overlord is safe!

Kill the Overlord is a fun, fast-paced game of political murder for 4 to 8 players that can be played in about twenty minutes. The goal of the game is simple: Eliminate other players by sending the Overlord's executioner after them, while at the same time saving your own skin. Each time a player dies, his survivors climb another rung up the political ladder, taking the deceased's title and all the wealth and power that comes with it. The player who can secure enough wealth and the title of Overlord first will become the True Ultimate Supreme Overlord (and win the game)."
