If all goes well with the game's production, I'll be demoing this one. It's Fred Moyersoen's latest game and it's a nice mix of set collection, trading and take-that elements.

Edit 09-07-2014: I've seen some of the artwork. It's looking great!

Looks like a fun, free-form take on "city building" with a buying mechanism reminiscent of Industria.

Dice based engine building. Looks pretty interesting (and ugly too).

Edit 19-07-2013: Read the rules. I like the twist on Yahtzee rerolling where set aside dice must be immediately used to activate buildings which then can't be reactivated by later rerolls. Sounds interesting enough to support a small publisher.

Japonbrand release of a somewhat older (2011) game. Short description makes it sound very luck based but we'll see.

Edit 10-07-2014: Read the English rules. Seems simple and fun. Also has a great introduction:
Quote:
In a different time, in a different country, a certain King had a dream.
He dreamt of a hot spring with hot water in which you could relax all day long.
When the King awoke, he couldn't stop thinking of this hot spring.
FIND IT!
I'LL GIVE THE THRONE TO THE ONE WHO FINDS IT!
The whole country was in an uproar. But these lands are unexplored. Who knows what'll pop up?
What will we find if we start digging? Will there even be a hot spring down there?
Who will be able to find most valuables?

Japonbrand. I vaguely remember seeing some prototype photos of a game where eachc player controlled two pieces connected by a string. Looking at the back of this box, this might be that game.

Japonbrand (or Minimal Games, not sure what's going on there). Another small Seiji Kanai game, nothing else know about it for now.

Edit 25-17-2014: Two new pieces of information: It's a thematic sequel to Love Letter and it's a "not conversational Werewolf type game."
