Us wargamers know that getting a game design into production and into our hands to dissect and play can be a very long haul. Games like The Devil's Cauldron took many years after I placed my pre- order to make it to my door. Let's take a look of what gamers have on pre-order that they hope shows up in 2014. I am not including any kickstarters in this project so we don't have to go down the 'UP FRONT' black hole. Post away!

A game that was brought to my attention by Barry Kendall a while back. A little known game by developers ADG (Australian Design Group) makers or World In Flames and 7 Ages. My hope is for this to reach its pre order status this year. Its hard to tell at this point since ADG games are more a 'word of mouth' discovery. I think with a little bit of advertisement, this game would go over the top of the needed pre orders.

A GMT game that looks like it will see the light of day this year. All depends where it gets set in the production schedule.

Pax Romana 2nd edition has been on the GMT P-500 list for a long time. While the game has made the cut with >500 orders, the full production queue seems to be pushing this game out. This is a WISH to see this game this year!

Edit: With the latest newsletter, Pax Romana 2E MAY be published along with Genesis (estimated to be published in 2014Q4).

I believe this one will be published in March. Haven't received billing notice yet, but I am very hopeful.
