In an attempt to be as prepared as possible for the upcoming BGG.Con 2013, I've been building a watch list of all the games I am determined to play. I decided a handwritten list was inferior to a mighty geeklist, thus this thing was created.

I'll put the games in order of my enthusiasm. Some of these games may or may not see distribution at the convention, but I'm adding them anyway in the off chance a copy is placed in the Hot Games Room.

Feel free to comment. I love hearing other people's takes on the new games.



EDIT: Rearranged the items in the list. As I've done more research and heard more input on those who have played the games, my ranking of the importance of these items has changed. I'm doing this for my own benefit so I can keep track of what I'm going to keep an eye out for at the Con.

What will I do: A Must Buy!

This game looks awesome. I have to try this one out and if its as good as it looks I'll be buying it.

I totally dig asymmetrical games where players are all playing the same game, but in different ways. That's one of the big reasons I love Android: Netrunner.

And who doesn't like assassins taking out kings?

What will I do: A Must Buy!

I am a huge fan of Love Letter. I watched Tom Vasel's video review about Lost Legacy and instantly knew I had to buy it.

I really like the fact that you have two decks that can be played as separate games or mixed into any fashion you like. The word innovative comes to mind.

What I will do: A Must Buy!

I don't own Tzolk'in... yet. I managed to snag it and Suburbia together for a nice price on the VFM. Unlike Suburbia I have played Tzolk'in. As a matter of fact that was the first thing I did at BGG.Con 2012. My brother and I were like 30th in line and immediately headed for the Hot Games Room. We sat down with a guy we met in line and tried our hand at a 4 player game of Tzolk'in. I liked it a lot and managed a sizable win that first play through. I didn't buy it at the time because my money was tied up in other games I really wanted. I've since remedied that and plan on getting this expansion.

We've only managed to get this worker placement game to the table once since I got it. We all really liked it even though it comes across a little lite in my opinion. It's a quick and easy to learn game.

What I've heard about the expansion is intriguing. The two possible additions to the game, one adding some cool new buildings and one adding some corruption to negate VP's at the end, are just straight fun.

This one will be a nice addition to an already nice game.

I have not played Suburbia. For shame! I know.

That being said, I did manage to get a copy of Suburbia via the VFM. I've seen the game played and watched a fair amount of videos on it. It looks amazing, and it looks like something I'll get to the table often. I'm going to go out on a limb and say I need to pick up the expansion as soon as possible. Thus the "Must Buy."

This game is at the top of my list for watching it and trying it out. I saw a walkthrough of the game and I absolutely love the game play. Chances are I will eventually shell out the money for this one, but again, I'd like to try it out first.

If you haven't watched a walkthrough, I recommend it. This game looks great!

What I will do: Watch and probably buy if it's even available!

I'm a fan of it's much heavier cousin game, though others in our group aren't and I totally understand why they aren't. However, this is all about rolling dice with a theme I already enjoy. It's also been on my radar for a while now when I stumbled across a mention of this somewhere. Depending on the price and the game play I will most likely end up buying this one. We shall see.

Of course all of this is speculation as the game hasn't released and won't release at Essen. It probably won't be available at BGG.Con but in the off chance it is...

This game intrigues me. I really like the theme and the artwork. The stuff I've read on it looks great. It's a civilization building game and one I think I'll particularly like. However, since there is still rather limited information about it, I'll hold off on the ticker tape parade for the time being.

Yes, I'm aware this game is a few months old and I could go purchase it right now. I'd rather not until I've had a chance to play it first. The co-op game has been hit and miss in my gaming group. I think it really depends on the mechanisms within the co-op but sometimes it feels like 1 person is telling the others what to do and that get's boring fast.

That being said, I like the look of this game and everyone who's played it seems to enjoy it. So I'll check it out and see what I think.

I REALLY like historically based games. I bought 1812: The Invasion of Canada last year at the Con and have loved playing it. I even kickstarted 1775: Rebellion because of 1812's game play.

In Freedom it looks like you and your playing partners are trying to beat the difficulty of the board itself by getting as many slaves to freedom in the north as possible.

The map looks great and the theme is spot on. Absolutely have to give this one a try.

I saw Tom Vasel's review on this game and I like what I saw. And again, I'm aware this game has been out for a few months, but it's not a must buy. I'll try this out when I can at BGG.Con and see if its the one for me. And the worker track at the top, similar a bit to Carson City, looks interesting.

I'm a sucker for sci-fi themed games. This one looks interesting and others have been talking about it. The only video on the geek is a teaser for the game and it literally tells you nothing about the game. But who cares, I'll still check this one out, assuming it's at the con.

This one is a relative unknown to me. What I've read on it looks interesting but as it sits, before Essen, I'm still in the dark. I like the artwork and the theme. The elevator component of the mine shaft looks pretty cool and limiting I'm sure. I'll have to try this one out.

This one has gotten a lot of good buzz and that always intrigues me. Even more, it's being likened to Dominion with a different theme and I like Dominion.

My only sticking point with this game, and the reason I haven't grabbed it up yet, is the trains. I'm sick to death of all the train games out there, and they seem to be making more and more of them. I wish the train games and the zombie games would tap the breaks for a while.

This one makes it on my list by being an Uwe Rosenberg game. If I knew nothing else about the game, that would be enough to get me to try it. That being said, this one looks good and one I will most likely have to buy. For the time being I'll keep it as a Watch and Try because there is the slight chance I won't enjoy it. We'll see though.

I am usually pretty standoffish about TV themed board games. BSG really changed that for me, but even to this day I'm reluctant to play without at least reading up on it first.

Firefly is a show I adored when it was on, like so many others. And I'm glad someone has done justice with this board game. It looks great. I have it as a Must Buy and will most likely end up doing just that, but I'd really like to play it first just to see. Again, that reluctance blooms.

Two weeks ago this game would have been a Must Buy for me. The game play looks great and really fun, but that theme is just a killer. A game about lavish balls during the reign of Louis XV? I think I just fell asleep typing that. And I'm a history teacher!!! I should love that crap, but alas I don't.

This is still on the top of my list for must play's but it needs to knock my socks off for me to buy it. We'll see.

I was sad to see the game would most likely not be distributed in the states at the time of the Con. The walkthroughs and videos on this game look great. And the theme is right in my wheelhouse.

Luckily a buddy of mine said he was able to get a copy, somehow, some way. Time to get our Byzantio on!

Lee, you better bring this to the Con!

Admittedly I don't know nearly enough about this game. However the buzz is good and the theme takes me back. You're a hungry beast who finds his way into a town of meeples in high rise buildings. Then you eat and destroy. I loved the video game. Now the question is, how is the board game implementation?

Edit: After a little more looking into this, it looks crazy. Blowing down buildings, flicking discs, knocking over other monsters... sure. I'll have to try this one.

I did not have a chance to play Space Cadets at BGG.Con 2012. The table was usually full. Plus, no one in my gaming group seemed that interested. However, the Dice Duel game looks like a lot of fun. It also looks similar in nature to Escape: The Curse of the Temple, a game we enjoyed a lot of the con.

You roll dice like a freak and you rely heavily on other players rolling dice like freaks.

So another co-op with some zombies this time. WAIT! Before I walk the other way, I've decided this is one I might need to try. A team of people enter a demented house of horror and try to find a cure that will save the world from turning into a vast wasteland of the undead. Not a bad set-up. I'm sure I'd like this if I played it, so I shall try to squeeze it in at the con.
