I wanted to make a list of the top 5 games that really hit my nerd g-spot, so to speak.

I saw the miniatures for this game and began to drool. Wow. And the fact that you get to customize your characters just seems too good for words. I love the idea that you can play 2-10 as well (although 10 players will be one miniature each...I'm not so sure that will play well. Regardless, I am awaiting any new shred of info on this game. I love the German figures, they look evil and it's still politically correct to hate the Nazi's. Especially Tech/Magic augmented Nazi's. This is a must have for me.

Out sometime in early 2007 (I hope).

First, I love miniature games. Second, I suck at painting. So here's a miniatures game that comes with very nice pre-painted figures. Far better than I can do. The mechanics look solid if not a bit odd (I find Confrontation a little conveluted). I like that you get everything you need to play a game in one box (map, terrain, figs, rule book). A great idea. A must have for me.

Out in December, I believe.

I love the idea of Star Wars but I dislike the franchise now. But star ship combat? Sounds good. Although collectable, currently only plan for a single release and no boosters unless it does really well. I'm willing to collect a full set if that's the case. I just love the idea of X-Wings attacking a Star Destroyer. I only wish that the Capital ships would have targetable areas (like Shield generaters, Launch Bay). But they will probably be like the dragons of D&D (lots of HP's, less actions as they are harmed).

Out in November I think.

I like games that are innovative. I like the idea of having groups not be equal but that the Avengers have to work a lot longer to get a victory over say the X-men. And...well...I just like Marvel.

No idea when this will be out.

I have heard a lot of good things about Memoir '44 but I don't normally care for WWII armies style games. But the same (or similar) rules with fantasy figures? Sign me up!

No idea when this will be out.

I never played Wallenstein, but I was already sold on it. This retheme, however, is so up my alley I want to cry (tears of joy, of course).
