At first I was lukewarm on the new properties debuting en masse at Gen Con. But, I now have six games that I consider instant site unseen grabs. Did I miss one? What are yours? If you aren't going what WOULD yours be?

Given the recent demo video from GTS day, this isn't really an unknown quantity anymore. Looks straight forward, but it might be the first Deckbuilder to get close to capturing the Dungeon Crawl experience.

Space Cadets was my favorite game last year, and I need a good team vs team game. This looks like it was designed to be that from the ground up.

An extremely hyped game that's FINALLY making it's way stateside. I've been looking for a non-war meaty solitaire/co-op.

I'm going for this one based almost soley on graphics and possible resell. It looks good, but some comments from folks I trust have soured me a bit. Still a definite buy for me. Plus, the family loves games with trains.

Not sure this is an instant-buy for me, but I just found out about it thanks to another GTS "Rodney" preview. Figured I'd throw it in this list for anyone who wasn't aware of it.

If you ever play with middle-grades/tweens, you want this. Can be explained in about 5 minutes if you can get them to stay quiet; plays with very little downtime.

I won't be at Gen Con (mandatory family event that weekend), but I got this for my birthday when my entire family dropped the ball after great big hints dating back to the Kickstarter campaign.

We'll have this available at the Bezier Games booth (#562), but if it's anything like Origins, where it sold out at 10:30am on Thursday, it might be a good idea to get there early.

Also, we'll have designer Legend Dan Hoffman on hand to sign copies and play the game right in the booth!

Ultimate Werewolf: Inquisition is a 3-12 player, no elimination and no moderator version of werewolf:
