"Always in motion is the future." -- Yoda


Here are some games for later in the year that I'm looking forward to.
Please add your own.

Some of these would appear to be sure things, such as the fall lineup from Fantasy Flight.

Others feel more like mirage games – forever receding as you approach them, always six to twelve months away from release.

Shogun
Rio Grande/Queen Games
Release date: August 2006

New reworking of #10-ranked Wallenstein. For some reason, 15th century Japan is a whole lot more interesting to me than 17th century religous wars in Europe.

Sid Meier's Pirates! - The Boardgame

Release date: August 2006 (GenCon)

This game has taken so long because Sid Meier is a perfectionist, and it will be stupendous when it's finally done. That's what I keep telling myself.

The "wow cool" factor for this game idea is off the charts (according to me, anyway).
It's by Fantasy Flight so we can count on it (right?).

Release date: maybe never?

No reprint is in the works, that I know of. But who knows what the future could hold (c.f. Die Macher, above).
The highest rated wargame in the general rankings before Command and Colors came out. Currently $255, new, on ebay.
