After the succesful list of 2013 Games will be Awsome!

Right now we are at mid of 2013, but many games are announced for the 2014 year! Lots of games in development, many games that run a kickstarter/indiegogo campaing during 2013 will be delivered at early 2014 at best, and well the classic portion of games from publishing houses and our lovely indie game developers/producers.

it´s pretty early to celebrate the 2014, but we could forsee what games are about to come (and wonder which ones would fit our gaming collections and nourish our gaming groups)

if we are at mid of 2013 is that we got chances of surviving the zombiepocalypse, maybe EL CHOLO from Zombicide or bradd pit world war Z made something to prevent it! zombiezombieninjazombiezombiezombie so let me give you an advice...2014 is coming and we shall prepare our wishlists for upcoming games. (actually we did survived)

Please suscribe to this geeklist because it would be updated frequently.

Previous lists like this helped me a lot to decide which games to WISH to increase effectively my game collections, which ones to buy, etc. I hope this one could help you a bit in your decision (and let you make good unblind choices)

You are invited to add games that will come or are announced to come in 2014, also comment on what up about them. this geeklist is sorted by aphabetical order. help us to keep this going up your effort is appreciated

LET THIS GEEKLIST OUTSTAND THE OLD 2013 Games will be Awsome! with more games, more thumbs/likes and more NEWS! it´s up to you guys!

I shall put EXPANSION to those games who expand previous published games, to separate from first stand alone new games

404:Law Not Found is about a group of robots that work on a spaceship. One day they receive new chips, and the three laws that they love disappear, to be replaced by 3 scrambled directives. Robots love to obey, and they will do their best to achieve them!

Race to complete your directives while the ship hurtles through space carrying out its mission, while manipulating the rather hopeless humans, monkey and assortment of items on the ship.

This game just looks really cool and I thought it deserved a spot on here, its on kickstarter right now and will be out next year!

BOARDGAME EXPANSION

7 Wonders with more expansion the merrier!

Quote:
7 Wonders: Babel includes two modules for use with the 7 Wonders base game, and they can be used individually or together in any combination with other expansions.

In one half of 7 Wonders: Babel, players draft quarter-circle tiles at the start of the game prior to drafting anything else; each tile depicts a law that affects all players should it be put into play, e.g., all single resource cards provide an infinite number of resources each turn, or winners in military conflicts receive fewer points than normal.

During the game, players now have an additional option when discarding a card. Instead of gaining three coins, they place one of these tiles in the next open space on a circular display; the law on this tile remains in effect until the end of the game or until it's covered. (Should a fifth tile be placed, for example, it's placed on top of the first tile played.) At the end of the game, players receive points based on how many tiles they played.

In the second half of 7 Wonders: Babel, one of five law cards is randomly revealed at the start of each age, and a number of tokens are placed on it, based on the number of players. This card imposes a tax on players who want to play cards of a certain color. When a player pays this tax, he takes one of the tokens from this law card. At the end of the age, if all of the tokens have been removed, then players receive a bonus (which is depicted on the card) for each token they have; if tokens remain on the card, then each player without a token is penalized.

Just as the cost of cards increases in each age, the number of resources required to pay the tax also increases.

The Abyss power is once again vacant, so the time has come to get your hands on the throne and its privileges. Use all of your cunning to win or buy votes in the Council. Recruit the most influential Lords and abuse their powers to take control of the most strategic territories. Finally, impose yourself as the only one able to rule the Abyssal people!

Abyss is a game of development, combination and collection in which players try to take control of strategic locations in an underwater city. To achieve this, players must develop on three levels: first by collecting allies, then using them to recruit Lords of the Abyss, who will then grant access to different parts of the city. Players acquire cards through a draft of sorts, and the Lords of the Abyss acquired on those cards grant special powers to the cardholder — but once you use the cards to acquire a location, that power is shut off, so players need to time their land grabs well in order to put themselves in the best position for when the game ends.

Quote:
The "beautiful game" meets ancient mythology in the tactical board-based card game Age of Soccer as victory depends on getting the right balance between your player and action cards as well as a healthy dose of good fortune from the ancient deities. Will the deities reward their favorite players with divine powers? Or will they favor your opponents? Only time and skill will tell.

Age of Soccer is a card and hand management style game. Players are tasked with building their team's strength by recruiting new player cards in addition to adding powerful action cards to help influence a match and defeat opponents.

At the beginning of your turn, you must choose between strengthening your squad with new player cards or strengthening your hand with new action cards. Players use special training cards to help train their team or cause trouble for their opponents. Then players battle opposing teams using special match cards, trying to defeat them and gain a vital trophy.

Once a player has defeated all other teams in the game, he is crowned the champion of Age of Soccer.

An EUROGAME with wargame aspect! meeple

Quote:
Age of War is a quick-playing game of conquest. Fourteen cards are laid out at the start of the game, each showing one castle and the symbols required to conquer this castle, with the symbols separated into battle lines. Each castle belongs to a clan, with some clans having only a single castle and some having up to four castles.

A player starts his turn by rolling seven dice, the six sides of which show archery, cavalry, daimyo, and 1-3 infantry. He then selects a card and uses the symbols rolled to conquer exactly one of the battle lines on this card (by placing the appropriate dice on that line). If he can do this, he then rolls the remaining dice, ideally conquering another line; if he can't conquer a line, he removes one die from play, then rolls again. His turn ends when either he conquers every line on the card (in which case he claims it) or he no longer has dice available to roll.

Each card is worth a number of victory points. You can conquer cards owned by other players, but you need to conquer an additional daimyo line in the process. If a player owns all the castles of one clan, however, those castles are secure and cannot be stolen. What's more, these castles are now worth more points because you've united the clan under one ruler (you) and strengthened your hold over Japan.

When the last card is claimed, players tally their points, and whoever has the highest score wins.

In the beginning of the game, players choose their target cards. And in each turn, player moves on the five element map and uses the function card to collect element stones or to do the special function. Players have to reach the alchemy condition on his target card. Once a player reaches his target, then he wins, and the game is over. But if someone reaches the soul-broken condition on his target card, then he has to restart.
So, hide you target carefully. And start to enjoy the magic power of Chinese five elements!

Quote:
Mandrake root and scorpion tail; spongy mushroom and warty toad — these are the foundations of the alchemist's livelihood, science, and art.

But what arcane secrets do these strange ingredients hide? Now it is time to find out. Mix them into potions and drink them to determine their effects — or play it safe and test the concoction on a helpful student! Gain riches selling potions to wandering adventurers and invest these riches in powerful artifacts. As your knowledge grows, so will your reputation, as you publish your theories for all to see. Knowledge, wealth, and fame can all be found in the murky depths of the alchemist's cauldron.

In Alchemists, two to four budding alchemists compete to discover the secrets of their mystical art. Points can be earned in various ways, but most points are earned by publishing theories – correct theories, that is — and therein lies the problem.

The game is played in six rounds. At the beginning of the round, players choose their play order. Those who choose to play later get more rewards.

Players declare all their actions by placing cubes on the various action spaces, then each action space is evaluated in order. Players gain knowledge by mixing ingredients and testing the results using a smartphone app that randomizes the rules of alchemy for each new game. Players can also earn money by selling potions to adventurers, but money is just a means to an end. The alchemists don't want riches, after all. They want respect, and respect usually comes from publishing theories.

During play, players' reputations will go up and down. After six rounds, this reputation will be converted into points. Points will also be scored for artifacts and grants, and several bonuses will be handed out. Then the secrets of alchemy are revealed and players score points or lose points based on whether their theories were correct.

Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins.

The Outer Belt expansion to Alien Frontiers adds ships and colony tokens for an additional player and expands the playing board. This side-board expands the moon with a new territory, and introduces the nearby Asteroid Belt. Asteroid Counters move through the belt during the game, changing their docking requirements as they change their positions. Staking a claim to an Asteroid will give you resources, a derelict ship, or new alien devices. Outer Belt can accommodate 2 to 5 players (up to 6 players when combined with Alien Frontiers: Factions).

Object of the Game: cooperatively hold off the Alien attacks until [1] you can repair the ship and take off or [2] a rescue ship arrives. Player(s) win by escaping the planet and lose if all of them are slain by the Aliens. In Alien Uprising players use actions and unique character skills to help the team reach the goal of survival and escape. The game can be set to higher levels of difficulty for more experienced players.

Tensions have been high with the alien "bug" races of the galaxy and your ship has crash landed on the planet Hive IV, one of the more renegade "bug" planets. You quickly set up perimeter force fields and begin surveying the surrounding terrain for debris from your ship - it is scattered everywhere. Then you see them - at first a few "bug"scouts, but then the numbers begin to increase all around you - archers, slashers, and even the monstrous brutes. This is more than a scouting party - this is a war party! They begin to attack the shields as the crew starts to retrieve debris. The SOS has been sent and a ship in the sector has responded, but can it get to you before the "bugs" overwhelm your crew? Can you repair parts of the ship and use it as a defense? Can you repair the hull and fire up the engine to lift off? All is up to the players in this desperate struggle to survive Alien Uprising.

Quote:
Allegiance is a fantasy-themed, self-contained, strategy card game. Play as one of many powerful heroes in the war for the continent of Anstrus. Customize and level-up your hero as you invest in their abilities, and commandeer the aid of other inhabitants of the land. Spend your resources wisely however, as a single misstep could mean the difference between victory and defeat.

While easy to learn, the strategy in Allegiance is layered and complex and every small advantage matters. At each turn in this fast-paced game of tactics you must decide: Do you unlock another of your hero's game-changing powers? Enlist troops for immediate aid? Or save your gold to surprise your opponent with tricky and unexpected action cards? With dozens of unique match-ups between the heroes, and hundreds of possibilities for three or four player games, the answers to those questions will never be the same twice.

Already on kickstarter and about to be funded, this game is a card survival thriller

About to be delivered at Jan 2014



Quote:
A pulp horror adventure game for 2-4 players, aged 14 and up.

In Ancient Terrible Things, you play the role of an intrepid adventurer, exploring a dark jungle river.
Each turn you must travel to a Fateful Location, face an Ominous Encounter and attempt to unlock its Ancient Secrets.
If you succeed (using a combination of dice, tokens and cards), you add the Secrets to your score. If you fail, you unleash a TerribleThing, which counts against your score at the end of the game.
The object of the game is to be the player with the most Ancient Secrets when the game ends at the Unspeakable Event.

Game play involves rolling dice to achieve combinations (runs, pairs, three or more of a kind, and single die showing a particular number or higher).
Dice combos are used to overcome Encounter cards (worth points at the end of the game) and to acquire resources (tokens).
There are 4 main resource tokens in the game: Focus, Courage, Treasure and Feat.
Focus tokens used to re-roll individual Focus dice.
Courage tokens are spent to overcome an Encounter, before rolling your dice.
Treasure tokens are spent on Swag cards from the Trading Post,which give you a permanent game effect.
Feat tokens are spent to play Feat cards from your hand, which allow for one-shot effects.

Living Card Game Expansion

this sucessful card game keeps raining in expansions!

 


Quote:
Fear and Loathing is the fifth Data Pack in the Spin Cycle for Android: Netrunner. The futuristic world of Android: Netrunner is one of vertiginous discrepancies between achievement and poverty. The megacorps that have redefined humanity with the development of custom genetics, bioroid manufacturing, and mind-machine interfacting are at least partially responsible for stabilizing social policies that mire countless masses in overcrowded, unsanitary living conditions. In the shadows of the megacorporations’ towering corporate headquarters, the vast majority experience mundane desperations, fear for their jobs, loathe their limited social status, and fight a daily war for survival.

The sixty new cards of Fear and Loathing (three copies each of twenty individual cards) translate this dichotomous existence to your games of Android: Netrunner. On the one hand, you have powerful and exploitive business entities like GRNDL, a subsidiary of the Weyland Consortium, and on the other, you have the beaten down and fearful masses. But there are other categories, too, and while many people may be driven to silence, the game’s Runners and other spirited individuals, like the investigative reporter Tallie Perrault, are driven to action.

Angry Dice is a real-time dice rolling microgame. The object is the to be the first to six by rolling your dice in ascending order pairs. Players each have 2 dice they can roll and they can lock a die (except a 6), if it rolls to something they will need. Each Angry Dice set adds different risks/rewards to the game - the base set of Angry Dice requires the player to start at the beginning if they ever roll double Angry Faces (the 3).

It was offered as part of the VivaJava: The Coffee Game: The Dice Game Kickstarter campaign at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dicehateme/vivajava-the-... which successfully funded with four Angry Dice expansions on July 21, 2013.

Still not much information about this game, but the concept seem interesting because is about building a city making points in the process! the best placed buildings would make you the winner!

Quote:
In Animocity, a clash of builders, players are city developers competing for points bragging rights. Players place city locations perpendicular to randomized districts, robbing their opponents of points and rearranging what was previously built. The bonuses that occur are changed each round as players fight for initiative and choose new location/bonus combinations.

The modular nature of the game means doing the best with what you have while the layout and game play is fresh every game. You can make deals and break deals, make friends and make enemies, but in the end only one person wins. Oh, and the play is pretty darn addictive. More details to come.

News from the depths! The AquaSphere is a research facility stationed deep below the ocean's surface, and your skilled team — consisting of an engineer, a scientist, reprogrammable bots and exploratory submarines — is trying to gather as much data as possible.

The game board in AquaSphere has two main areas: A research station comprised of six sectors in which your scientist conducts experiments and a headquarters where your engineer supervises preparation of the bots. During each of the four game rounds, you take several turns, and on each turn you either:

Use your engineer in the headquarters to program a bot; each round you can choose from three of the seven actions.
Have your scientist bring a bot to a sector to perform an action.
Through actions such as improving your lab, sending out submarines, collecting crystals, and examining octopuses, you expand the abilities of your team or gather knowledge points, which are necessary to win. Additional challenges result from the limited size of your lab, which is your personal stock; you can increase the size of your lab, which makes life easier, but this costs valuable time.

AquaSphere is a challenging game of strategy and tactics with different paths to victory that requires planning in advance as well as skillful use of short-term opportunities.

Quote:
In Arcadia Quest, players lead guilds of intrepid heroes on an epic campaign to dethrone the vampire lord and reclaim the mighty Arcadia for their own. But only one guild may lead in the end, so players must battle against each other as well as against the monstrous occupying forces.

Arcadia Quest is a campaign-based game for 2 to 4 players, where each player controls a guild of three unique heroes, facing off against the other players and the various monsters controlled by the game. Players need to accomplish a series of quests in order to win each scenario and choose where to go next in the campaign.

Players are able to choose the path their campaign takes, navigating through six out of eleven available scenarios, so each time the campaign is played it can have a different configuration of scenarios. As the campaign progresses, the heroes are able to acquire new weapons, equipment and abilities that give them powerful options to tackle the obstacles ahead. Furthermore, by fulfilling specific quests in a scenario, players unlock exclusive features in subsequent scenarios.

My own game, published by the guys who brought you such great games as BattleCON: War of Indines and Pixel Tactics!

It's a thematic worker placement game. Should find plenty of fans with both crowds, and with people who enjoy both such as myself.

Quote:
The time has come for the selection of a new Chancellor at Argent University of Magic, and you are among the likely candidates for the job. Gather your apprentices, ready your spellbook, and build your influence, while secretly discovering and competing over the votes of a limited Consortium of influential board members. Only the one who is able to fulfill the most criteria will be claim the title of most influential mage in the World of Indines!

Argent: The Consortium is a cutthroat worker-placement/engine-building game of manipulation and secrecy in which the criteria for victory are secret and the capabilities of your opponents are constantly changing. You'll need to outwit the other candidates, use your spells at the right moment, and choose the correct apprentices to manage your plan.

Argent: The Consortium is a European-style game that minimizes luck and focuses on player interaction and strong core mechanisms that allow new strategies to emerge each time you play.

I wonder if this game would make it this 2014, but Bruno Faidutti always surprises us! any additional information will be apreciated

Quote:
You're waking up from the hibernation pods. The hibernation room doesn't look like the one in which you were being sent to sleep. In the nearby pods, your comrades from the other national teams that are to help you build the new international space station are also slowly emerging from their pods. Your eyes are not yet completely open when alarms start flashing red and a metallic voice shouts from the loudspeakers «Alien presence detected, evacuation in progress, self-destruction in GRRRRZZZRRRRR minutes»...

In Space Station Argo — which is probably not the game's final title — a group of astronauts attempts desperately to survive as they explore a mysterious space station and are besieged by horrible alien monsters.

Quote:
Artificium is a card-driven development game. Some cards produce resources or transform one type of resources into another and award victory points, while others let you perform actions. Carefully planning the chain of cards that you will play during the game turn is the key to success.

Artificium lasts four turns. At the start of each turn, players have five cards in hand, with six cards being face-up on the table as a card market. During the turn, players first have a chance to exchange some cards from their hands with those in the market, then they play and resolve their cards step by step, performing actions, trading and gathering resources, and most importantly, refining certain resources into other resources to earn victory points. Crystals on the players' individual resource boards keep track of their resources as they are bought and sold. Crystals placed beside the board represent player's coins. The final score is determined after the fourth turn, with players selling any remaining resources to score additional victory points (one point per four coins). The player with the most victory points is considered to be the wisest medieval ruler and is declared the winner.

Assemblage of Eternity brings the competitive fighting game to the traditional gaming world. Awesome miniatures! Awesome artwork!

2-4 players choose a Character and fight in an arena of their choice. The first character to reduce their opponents' health to 0 wins the game. Simple rules with deep complexity, Assemblage of Eternity brings the fighting game to the traditional gaming world.

A game about galaga and space invaders! RETRO COOL!

Quote:
The Battle at Kemble's Cascade is a board game adaptation of a classic shoot 'em up video game. In the game, which is played out on a scrolling space backdrop, the players take on the roles of brave space pilots sweeping around in nimble yet powerful fighters, searching the asteroid clusters for universal glory and ancient technology. Players compete to obtain the most glory, with glory resulting from carrying out missions, finding lost treasure in asteroid clusters, and destroying alien entities, not to mention other players.

In the game, players fly through an ever-scrolling space setting, which is represented by rows of cards. Each turn, the bottom row is removed and a new row is added to the top. Players move their spaceships and resolve effects continuously, performing actions such as collecting power-ups and money, fighting alien cruisers and titans, blocking and shooting other players, and dodging asteroids and black holes. The players need to balance the use of their ships' energy as it's used for both absorbing enemy fire and boosting their movement speed and fire rate.

The game includes missions and achievements as well as a mechanism called "threat level" to keep everyone in suspense throughout the whole game. Threat allows players to enjoy the satisfaction of both shooting wildly at each other and dodging the hundreds of bullets raining down from enemy fighters and other players.

All player ships are fully upgradeable with four different weapon classes, engines, shields and more. Each player must buy the upgrades and navigate the path that best fits his chosen strategy in order to successfully complete his missions and attain the most glory.
