Maybe this will be the year, eh? Yeah, any day now!

Uh huh. Sure.

With sooo many intriguing items being presented around Essen time, I did a reminisce of a bunch of my "Boy, I can't wait for that one to come out" expectations from the past.

These are all games that were/are on my want list that seemed to have dematerialized before my very eyes eons ago, never to return. Feel free to add any of yours that appear to have fallen off the face of the Earth, even after years of waiting.

For some of them, maybe for the better.

Looks so cool. I want so bad.

Addendum: I finally got a copy through Boardgameshop.eu !!
And... It finally made its way to the US. Love this game.

I know, I know! But, it's not out yet, is it?



(Although I already have the original, and don't want the reprint, I still couldn't resist sticking this one in.)




Addendum: SUCCESSFUL RELEASE THROUGH KICKSTARTER!

Oops: Still not to be. The continuing saga of Up Front.

A very cool looking card game that I gladly acquired through a charity donation, and would have bought outright anyway.

But, I never received it. soblue
Has anyone?

Arrived in limited numbers in 2010. Was the surprise hit of Origins that year. Then Z-Man buys the rights. Huzzah!

Then came the first promise of its release by Origins 2011.

Then Z-Man was sold. And bought.

Then came 2012.

Then at Origins 2012 came talk of the game going back to the drawing board for tweaks by the designer to "tighten" it.

Now it's a 2013 release.

But has the so-called "tighten" truly worked? Or does it even exist? Will we see the game at Origins 2013?

Oh, Wok Star! Where art thou?
