Board Game: Star Wars: Battle of Hoth
Apologies for the quietness these past couple of days. Information about games that will be shown at the 2012 Nürnberg Toy Fair has suddenly surged into my in-box and on other points online, so I've been trying to get those games in the BGG database in preparation for the Nürnberg 2012 Preview. Right now some of these listings are sparse, as with the Star Wars: Battle of Hoth game depicted at right, and the rest of the titles announced in the LEGO Games line: Kokoriko, Mini-Taurus (tee hee), [thing=116982]Maya Mystica[/thing], CITY Alarm, Heroica: Llrion, Heroica: Ganrash, and Phineas and Ferb. (Hard to believe that Star Wars: Battle of Hoth won't be a hit no matter how the game plays as LEGO essentially looked at the Venn diagram of gamers, SF geeks and toy fanatics and identified the magic spot where they intersect. Cha-ching!)

Kosmos is releasing the funky abstract stick-laying game Tasso as Lakota.

Ravensburger has BITS Mitbringspiel, Yakari: Geheime Botschaft and Indigo along with games that were not designed by Reiner Knizia. Yes, after being relatively absent from the new release section in 2011 – well, as absent as Knizia might be given his prolificity – many new releases scheduled for 2012 bear his name.

I'll push other newness into the database and get the Nürnberg 2012 Preview live soon.
