Top of my list, I've been excited for this one since last year, when the word was that it would be in stores for the holidays. This didn't happen, but the release is now imminent, and Tokaido should be my first new game purchase of 2013.

I really like co-ops, and Forbidden Island is one that my daughter will play with me. This game looks like it has some similar concepts with more depth and complexity.

The theme and gameplay mechanics to this look neat. Libellud has become a publisher to watch in my eyes, and there have been a lot of really imaginative, interesting games coming out of France in the last few years.

This game, while I know very little about it, has an incredibly impressive visual flair. Great artwork on the board, and the stone quarry mechanic looks intriguing.

Village was one of my favorite games of the past year. I had thought that it would be hard to create an expansion for the game, with so many critical elements (the chronicle, graveyard, etc.) being printed right on the board. The solution - to create new areas of the board that overlay these sections - is fairly brilliant. I like the India of adding a fifth player, as well as a new building with its own new paths to victory points.

I don't feel that I've really gotten enough play out of Seasons to need an expansion yet, but I really like the game, and the idea of adding asymmetrical special abilities to the mix is interesting.

As a Star Wars fan, this dice game sounds like a nifty filler. So far no U.S. publisher has picked it up but I am hopeful that we'll be hearing something soon. I can't imagine that it won't get a domestic release here, with all of the Star Wars news flying around these days.

I might be in the minority here, but I like the look of the new release of Pandemic. Since I haven't yet added it to my collection, I might be picking it up at some point this year.

Amazingly, I don't think I own a single game by Stefan Feld. This seems somewhat blasphemous based on the levels of praise for the designers body of work here on BGG. I was tempted by Castles of Burgandy several times last year, but there always seemed to be something else I wanted more. I think the other thing holding me back is that my collection already has a bunch of really solid Eurogames that don't get a whole lot of table time, so I am hesitant to add more. Feld has something like six games being released this year, and a couple of them look pretty interesting to me. I like the theme to this game, but the next game on the list appeals to me more, I think.

This is getting a re-release this year. I'm not fully sold on it since I don't think it will get played much in my gaming group, but the concept is very interesting to me, and I like games with hidden movement and deduction. However, I'm not the biggest fans of co-ops with one player working against the co-op team.

This update of a 1974 Milton Bradley game has absolutely amazing bits. Not sure about the gameplay here, but the visual style of this game calls to me. Hopefully the updated rules will make for a good game in addition to all of the cool themed buildings.

I'm definitely cool on Knizia designs, sine I have a lot of them in my collection already, and they almost all boil down to playing numbers onto other numbers, regardless of the theme. But, Qin looks interesting to me. I like the theme and the visual design of the game. so, I might be adding at least one more Knizia this year.

After Mice & Mystics last year, I'm willing to take a good look at whatever Plaid Hat Games has to offer as a follow-up. The descriptions of this game have got me interested. It sounds like a mix of european mechanics with Ameritrash elements thrown in for combat purposes.

I haven't played the base game yet (although I have a session scheduled later this week) so I don't yet know if the game warrants an expansion or not. It looks to add a good amount of meat to the base game, though, and I always like expansions that add room for more players. This one is n my radar, although I stopped auto-buying expansions for everything I owned a long time ago.

Capture the enemy King by flicking dice across the board? Sure, I want to know more about this game. Looks and sounds pretty cool.

[EDIT] The rep for the company just clarified that this game will have stickered dice and not printed or engraved. This could be a deal breaker for me. Stickered dice in a game where the dice get knocked around and handled a whole lot? Yikes. Still worth a look but I'm going to want to get a hands on or get some reviewer opinions on the quality of the dice before pulling the trigger on this game.

After watching the prototype gameplay description for this dice game, I'm sold. I will be backing it on the just-started Kickstarter drive. Looks like a fast dice game with asymmetrical hero abilities and a lot more depth than your standard dice filler (each hero die has special powers, etc.)

Looking very cool. I hope the final dice look as good as the CG renders they have on the kickstarter site.

This game looks insanely cute. It's the board game version of all those "tactics" videogames I used to play. Probably a must have.
