"I think there's plenty of room for new mechanics and new ideas from current designers as well as future ones. Someday you could be buying the latest and greatest boardgames from designers in Japan or South Africa or Canada or somewhere else in addition to Europe and the US. The world is a big place and full of possibilities. "

I recently read this quote on a forum page discussing where the next wave of games would come from. I have to admit I was a little surprised to hear about the next wave of gaming greatness coming from my own backyard - Canada. I certainly wasn't aware of a game design movement building momentum, ready to burst onto the scene once the world tires of yet ANOTHER Carcassonne expansion.

So this list is for games that might be just over the horizon; games NOT from the juggernauts of Europe or the United States.

Feel free to add..

Princes of Flin-Flon:

An old classic rethemed to the wilds of Manitoba ( ..which is pretty much ALL of it.) Players now build trailer parks to house their artists, where they really don't create much as they are "between engagements" and whining about the injustice of Canada Council grants. Builders are Dry Wallers who work under the table for cash, and Jesters have been replaced with drunken Curlers. The guy from the box even looks like he's wearing a tuque.

The latest in great canadian games, it's "Molson checkers, eh?" Perfect for when the sun goes down and won't be back up again for the next month.
