I got sucked into the world of board gaming about 3/4ths of the way through 2012. Since then I've been building my "library" of games, exploring the Geek, and generally enjoying how games pull me away from the TV and make for top-notch social experiences.

There is still a "backlog" of already-published games that I would like to play at some point. Many of the games in that category will find their way into my collection during 2013, I am sure.

With that said, I'm looking forward to some new titles coming out in 2013. I do not have the capital to purchase or the time to play every new game, but this list encapsulates games that I think are worth a look; I will probably only purchase 25% of these this year.

This list will be updated frequently, so subscribe if you would like to keep tabs on new titles in development. Also, feel free to add suggestions in the comments below.

Why I'm interested: I've been intrigued by the 4x space genre for quite some time; I have watched plenty of video reviews of other giants in the genre without being particularly interested in any of them, but this one seems right in my starship wheelhouse.

The Verdict: Kickstarted! I will report back after I've received the game (around July, according to Minion Games) and played it a few times.

UPDATE: production has experienced various setbacks. The new target arrival date is October.

UPDATE: more production setbacks, due to parallel coins project. New target arrival date is before Christmas.

Why I'm interested: The minis just look too cool. Their visual aesthetic and minimalist design really set them apart from anything else in the genre. The shorter "skirmish" playtime is also a huge plus, although I'm sure I'll borrow some longer custom scenarios created by other fans. Also seems like a good starter project for painting miniatures.

The Verdict: Kickstarted! Will have to wait until September 2013 when I receive the base set (the aircraft won't arrive until Q1 2014).

UPDATE: production delays, CMON says they are on schedule to ship the base game in November, with all stretch goal items + add-ons to come in Q1 2014.

Why I'm interested: I love steampunk. I already own one steampunk board game, but it was a huge letdown, and I'm looking forward to this game filling that hole in my collection. This game has already garnered a great review from UndeadViking also.

I already know that I enjoy the pick-up-and-deliver mechanic. Throw in some trains, dirigibles, and great artwork, and I'm sold! The modular board has a very interesting aesthetic that I like.

KS backers are reporting problems with the boards warping badly. Do I wait for a 2nd edition?

The Verdict: none yet.

Why I'm interested: Am currently on the quest for a deck-building game (or two) that I really enjoy (Dominion isn't my favorite). I think the homage to '90s sidescrollers is pretty awesome.

The Verdict: For the present, this one is coming off my wishlist in favor of Boss Monster.

Why I'm interested: This is the next expansion for Sentinels of the Multiverse, which has reached the top tier of my favorite games. 2 new heroes, 4 new villains, and some unique new rules.

The Verdict: This is now available from online retailers. Will be picking this up soonish.

UPDATE: Received as a gift!

Why I'm interested: This expansion pack will add some variability to the base game, which is already a hit with most folks with whom I play.

The Verdict: No comment yet on gameplay. Huge plus = they fit into the original game box!

EDIT: It seems that one of these boards (Abu Simbel) is unplayable without the Leaders expansion.

Why I'm interested: The artwork for this game looks very fun, and it reminds me of Disney's Atlantis, for some reason. Having watched a Dice Tower preview of the game, I will say that there seem to be many similarities to 7 Wonders, although it seems a bit more complex.

The Verdict: Watched some more videos to understand gameplay better. it shares resource management and card/actions in common with other games, but not as similar to 7 Wonders and Among the Stars as I had feared. Definitely on my want list.

EDIT: evidently, the cards are printed on ultra-thin stock that creases easily. May be the first game I ever sleeve.

Why I'm interested: Assymetrical gameplay, cyberpunk theme, published by Plaid Hat Games, and a glowing review from Mr. Vasel himself. I will say that the board aesthetic is not my favorite, though.

The Verdict: Will wait for reviews by fellow BGGers before considering this.

EDIT: There have been some excellent reviews. Jumps a few spots on my wishlist.

EDIT: consensus seems to be that for such a sprawling area control game, the "patrols" are too arbitrary and their effects too swingy.

Why I'm interested: it's described as a piratical deck-building game. Introduces playable "factions" for some differentiation in gameplay. Looks interesting enough.

I hope the art and card quality are up to snuff with other DBGs. The cards have received a major facelift. Kudos to the artist.

The Verdict: Kickstarted! Played one 2P game with my PnP copy so far, will report back when I have a few more plays under my belt.

Edit: the game arrived in November. The cards have a much better print quality than I was anticipating from the publisher comments, so that was a bonus. We sat down and played a 2P game the following night. It was pretty fun, the square location cards are so much better than using regular-sized cards.

Why I'm interested: This looks like a mechanically-sound worker placement game, with an amazing theme. The colorfulness will make this much more accessible to fringe gamers.

The Verdict: Kickstarted! Pledged for a copy of the game + promos, and the salary trackers. Picked up the Ringmaster Expansion from the BGG Store also. Will report back in May 2013, which is the target delivery date to Kickstarter backers.

EDIT: as we reach the end of May, still haven't received the game yet. Here's to hoping for June July August!

UPDATE: received my copy in the mail today! Unfortunately, the box was seriously damaged. Contacted publisher about a replacement. They sent me one, which was also damaged, though less so than the first one.

I decided to dive right in. 2P game with my wife was quite fun. My only complaint is that the game runs a bit long. But we love the theme, and didn't have a "put-on-a-show" type game in our collection before this. Gave a provisional "7" rating after the first play. We did not use any of the expansion or promotional material for the initial session.

Why I'm interested: Looks like a great game for two with minimal setup and a quick playtime. Players are dragons hoarding gold and other valuables. Argyle sheep are the "currency," which should be fun.

The Verdict: No comment on the actual game yet. This has amazing artwork, high-quality cards, and will come in a sturdy two-piece box. Probably a great travel game!

Why I'm interested: Goofy 2-5 player card game designed by the vaunted Richard Launius. Could be quite fun, and the artwork is fantastic. Also, pirates!

The Verdict: none yet. Due to hit retail in Q2 2013.

EDIT: I like pirate games and dinosaur games, but this smashup doesn't look like it'll be my thing. There are other Launius titles that I would rather pursue.

Why I'm interested: Thematically, this looks very similar to King of Tokyo. However, from what I understand it will be primarily team vs. team, which could be incredibly fun. The monster artwork is great and incredibly diverse as well.

The Verdict: None yet. There was an unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign in mid-2012, but the designer/publisher have promised that this will be relaunched on KS in Q2 2013.

UPDATE: the game is undergoing some redesign due to copyright issues. According to the designer/publisher, the game will now be called Ring of Fire.

Why I'm interested: Here is another game based on the 8-bit sidescroller video games of the '90s. This one has different mechanics, however.

The Verdict: I'm not sure that I will be picking up both this AND Pixel Lincoln. It may come down to which gets better reviews here on the Geek.

UPDATE: The general consensus seems to be that this game is a bit better than Pixel Lincoln. That, and the fact that it costs about 1/3rd the price of that other sidescroller, means that Boss Monster goes on the wishlist, and Pixel Lincoln comes off.

Why I'm interested: A tactical sci-fi miniatures cooperative game? As long as the price point is manageable, I'll definitely be taking a look.

The Verdict: Look like a very interesting game, with plenty of nods to '80s and '90s pulp sci-fi. The Predator figure (err...I mean "Xeno-Hunter") put me over the top.

Why I'm interested: Dinosaurs is an underutilized theme, and that lifts this fairly standard-seeming area control game up a few notches on my list. Production values seem fairly high, and the KS video offers a quality explanation of gameplay.

The Verdict: Got my limited edition Promo Tiles yesterday, as well as a bonus pterodactyl first-player marker!

Due to the quite different mechanics this game has to offer, it has displaced Evo as the obligatory "dino game" on my wishlist.

Why I'm interested: This appears to be a light-hearted racing game, in the same vein as Snow Tails maybe. The only racing game currently in my collection is RoboRally, which can run a bit long, has a heavy luck-of-the-draw factor, and generally hasn't gotten favorable feedback from my gaming groups.

The Verdict: Two huge thumbs up! Have played this 5 times now, and it's just a great little racing game. Has the charm of a vintage game, but boasts smart mechanics of the modern board gaming era.

Why I'm interested: Low-cost dice-fest for a fun time with little brainpower needed. Throw in a unique gamebox to boot.

The Verdict: Kickstarted! Received the game on August 8th. Have played this about a dozen times now (some solo, some 2P). My conclusion is that this is a decent little dice filler, but not worth the time to play with more than two players, as downtime is egregious given the game's depth. However, 2P gaming is my mainstay, so this remains in the collection.

Why I'm interested: I think the idea of a football/rugby spinoff board game is pretty fun. I doubt that I would ever have the opportunity to be part of an ongoing league, but I think that Dreadball and this game each have their respective merits.

The Verdict: None yet. Won't be backing on Kickstarter, as there are no substantial KS exclusives (for once!), allowing me to hear what others consumers have to say once they've received the game.

Why I'm interested: steampunk flavor, some super cool airships with unique designs, and potential for a good game. Looks like it would be great for those game nights when theme is king. Will be following its progress with interest.

The Verdict: none yet. Decided not to back the KS campaign.

Why I'm interested: Quick-playing card games are one of the best weapons in a gamer's arsenal. They are a great bridge between hobbyists and casual gamers. This particular game looks to include some set-collection, hand management, and take-that elements, bailing-wired together with a wacky, screwball theme.

The Verdict: Opted not to pledge for a copy of the game, but wish them the best of luck.

Why I'm interested: 1) I like the jungle exploration theme, and 2) the animeeples are crazy cool. That pretty much sums up my interest here. Big drawback? Not yet sure if it's too similar to Tikal for them both to exist in my small game library.

The Verdict: Kickstarted!! I'll say that I'm very relieved that the boring player pawns will be replaced with nifty explorer meeples.

Why I'm interested: As a general rule, I like pirate-themed games. Sir Francis Drake is one of my favorite historical figures. And from all that I can tell, Eagle/Gryphon games has a very efficient publication process, and they leverage Kickstarter well without falling prey to overhype and "stretch-goal mania."

The Verdict: The game was successfully Kickstarted, with projected delivery date of August 2013. I'll give this another look once it has hit the market.

Why I'm interested: Designed by Philippe Keyaerts, who has an impressive track record. The theme is okay. I'm concerned that this might be too similar to RoboRally, despite all claims to the contrary.

The Verdict: None yet.

Why I'm interested: Many reviewers/playtesters are calling this a light euro/borderline gateway. Can never have too many gateway games! I like the "farmer's market" theme as well. Box art is par for the course with euros.

The Verdict: I have nothing but good things to say about this game. Had my first session this week, a 2P face-off with my wife. The rules were pretty easy (although we got a little stuck on figuring starting order values), and we love the artwork and theme. Home run!
