Yep once again I won't be at Spiel, but that doesn't stop me picking through the preview from W.E.M. So many potentially great games. Here are the ones that have pricked my interest so far. No doubt more will be added.

List is in order from games I want to try to most (top) to least (bottom). Out of the 118 games (so far) in the preview I've only chosen 17 which is kinda doable. I'm sure this number will rise as more are added to the list. (Roll for the Galaxy perhaps? RftG expansion?)


Total: 8/19 played.

Been waiting for this one since it had a different name and cover and publisher way back in '08. In fact it was the inspiration for my longest running and highest thumbing (and first!) geeklist.

Edit: ordered!

Edit: Played! After waiting a loooong time to try this I'm glad I finally did. I've only played it the once so far and we tried the base game. It's probably a good sign that while I was playing, the whole time I was thinking "I really would like to be playing the advanced version". More plays to come.

Wallace does retro sci-fi. Yes, please!

Edit: played. I really like the retro sci-fi feel. The game works pretty well. However I feel my opinion of it is tainted by the luck factor. I got totally screwed by the dice, but had it gone the other way I may have loved the experience. Not a sign of a great game.

Feld!

Edit: My Secret Santa sent this to me! Yay!

Edit: Played (twice) and enjoyed. However it just wasn't different enough to warrant keeping and I wasn't sure how often it would get played. As I always say you have to trade good stuff to get good stuff so away it went.

FELD!

Edit: played and enjoyed. Probably more complicated than it needs to be and I don't feel like Feld is doing anything different here. Glad to have played it but also glad I didn't buy it.

Love the idea of this. Would really like to KS it but don't no anyone going to Essen to pick it up for me.

Edit: Owned and played. A really nice addition to the AtS universe. More plays needed.

Both Trains and Automobiles were good so this one should be good to, right?

Its parent game is a bit long (and overrated) for what it is but I would like to try this.


Edit: Played (several times). Really like it and want more plays. Far better than it's parent game in a fraction of the time.

Been around for over a year as a PnP. Now that it's getting published I won't have to make my own to play it!

OK I'll admit it: it's just the name that gets this onto the list. If the game is half as good as the title it'll be brilliant!

Edit: played. It's ok. Nothing too special. I'd play again but not go out of my way to find it.

Looking forward to seeing if the game is as cheesy as it's name. This is a renamed and rethemed game that was Spacemen vs Aliens (even more cheese). Let me at it.

Deck building, with combat, in space. Something to seriously consider.

Looks interesting. I'd like to try before I buy if possible. I'll be keeping an eye on this.

Edit: Played. Ho hum. A little bit thinky, but mostly not that interesting. I wanted to like it more but it just isn't that great.
