(In this Nürnberg 2011 report from Feb. 3, 2011, Rob Harris ran down what to expect from Queen Games in 2011. Rob has now sent photos from the show, so I'm reprinting that section below with photos in place a few extra details gleaned from the images to give you a better idea of what to expect in the months ahead. —WEM)

These are all 2011 releases from Queen Games without specific release dates, and yes, the descriptions are sketchy for many of these. The titles are:

Castelli, by Günter Burkhardt – nothing else known at this time.

Fresco: The Glaziers, by Marco Ruskowski, Marcel Süßelbeck and Wolfgang Panning – this expansion box, which was released in January 2011 in North America and is also available in Europe, consists of modules 4-6 for the Spiel des Jahres-nominated Fresco, with players being able to mix-and-match these modules with any in the base game, in addition to using them individually. (2-4 players, 10+, 60-90 minutes)

German Railways (1832-1872), by Harry Wu – a new edition of Winsome Games' Preußische Ostbahn, a railway game through German history. (3-5 players, 12+, 60 minutes)

Kairo – players build a stall in Cairo's bustling marketplace in order to attract customers and sell wares. (2-4 players, 10+, 60 minutes)

Lancaster, by Matthias Cramer – players are English lords who are supporting the King during his conflict with France, while simultaneously trying to build castles for themselves and increase their influence in Parliament. (2-5 players, 10+, 60 minutes)

Res Publica, by Reiner Knizia – a trading game that's been published previously by Queen Games and others. This will be a new version of the game, with new artwork and some rule changes. (3-5 players, 10+, 30 minutes)

Show Manager, by Dirk Henn – a new version of this set-collecting game (with new artwork) in which players are directors who need to assemble a good set of actors in order to put on four plays. (2-6 players, 10+, 60 minutes)

Thebes: The Card Game - The Tomb Raiders, by Peter Prinz – a card game based on Prinz' board game Thebes (2-4 players, 10+, 30 minutes)

With a bit of Res Publica and German Railways peeking into view
