Hey everybody. Are you ready for another year of games of interest? Okay, here's the previous years I've covered:

2012 / 2013 / 2014

And like those lists, this geeklist will be constantly updated throughout the year, listing any games that I discover that I find interesting. Bear in mind, I'll only include games that work with 2 players. Also, this list will be generally kind of euro-leaning, and most games will likely be lower on the conflict scale, because that's what my wife and I like to play.

Also also, it's not going to be alphabetically sorted, because that gets really obnoxious I find, when people are subscribing.

Finally, for games (and expansions) to make it on the list, they need to be ranked as at least a 3 on my personal wishlist (3="Like to have"). Everything else I stumble across that piques some level of interest I'll rank as a 4 ("Thinking about it") and subscribe to it, but I won't add it to this list until enough info comes out that convinces me to upgrade it to a 3 (or a 2 "Love to have" or a 1 "Must have").

My full wishlist of games is HERE for anyone who'd like to peruse the titles that are in the "thinking about it" category...

Okay, with that out of the way, let's start listing!!!

Soo incredibly excited for ths... Pandemic is still one of Jen's and my absolute fav games of all time, and is the gateway game that got me into modern boardgaming! And I love the Legacy formula so much. My only concern about this game is... how will I ever go back to regular Pandemic???

Fingers crossed it makes it out this year, though I'd be very surprised if it actually does...

A heavy fantasy economic simulation where you run a mining/manufacturing business, outfitting adventurers that you hire to go out and save the kingdom for a variety of increasingly dangerous quests.

I did a runthrough for this in 2014 during its Kickstarter campaign, and I said then and continue to say now, that it's a shoe-in for top 10 of the year - it's that good!

Designer Vital Lacerda has already giving us some of the best heavy euros on the market: Vinhos, CO₂ and Kanban: Driver's Edition, so whenever he puts out something new, it's automatic must play, IMO. And what's most interesting about this one (which is an economic simulation of running an art gallery) is that he's going for more middle weight rather than heavy, so that's makes it even more exciting IMO!

Got to demo this at Gencon 2014 and subsequently did a runthrough of the prototype for its 2014 kickstarter campaign, so having spent a fair bit of time with it now, I can safely say it's one of my most anticipated games of 2015. LOOOVE the combination of Hanabi-style co-operative "can't see your own cards", plus Escape-style real time frantic play, plus Roborally style robot programming. This one fires on all cylinders!

Matt Leacock is a fantastic designer, there's no doubt about it, but he does tend to revisit the Pandemic formula a bit more often than I'd like (with Forbidden Desert, Forbidden Island and Pandemic: The Cure being his other three stand out hits). I loved it when he tried something different with Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age, which is why I'm so excited for this. I do worry though that maybe it's another reuse of the Pandemic formula? Time will tell...

I thought Ryan Laukat's previous games City of Iron & The Ancient World were brilliantly innovative, and also gorgeous to look at (though they both had a slightly more aggressive tone to their gameplay than I liked). And so this is his next new game, an Indiana Jones style adventuring archeologist in euro-card game format, so I can't wait to try it as well!

LOVED 2013's Madeira, and now this year we get a new heavy economic euro from the same designer duo & publisher, so this is a must get! And it details Japan's industrial revolution instead of Europe's, which is a theme I haven't seen before, so I'm even more excited!

Yay, Martin Wallace returns to heavy economic transportation simulations, ala Brass: Lancashire!!! Very exciting, especially since this game will cover the entire history of naval shipping, from galleys to galleons to almost modern day steamers. Still, it's always a bit of a gamble whether his designs will work well with 2p, but my fingers are crossed and I'm very excited!

Steve Finn is definitely one of favourite designers - he's the master of the meaty filler game, with a string of wonderfully enjoyable games already under his belt (Biblios, Biblios Dice, Capo Dei Capi, The Institute for Magical Arts and more) and hopefully 2015 will see his long awaited caveman hunter-gatherer dice simulation being released, since I've been waiting for this one a looong time!

Fresco is one of Jen's and my favourite games, making her top 20 and my top 30 of all time, and so I've been exciting about a portable card game version of this ever since I first heard about it years ago. Hopefully it'll capture all the awesome & innovative gameplay of it's Fresco painting big brother, and will let us imagine we're renaissance masters while we're on the road, or maybe this will be yet another year where it's a no show!

I sat down with the designer of this (Tony Boydell, who also designed 2012's excellent Snowdonia) and played a bit, and after just a couple of rounds, I knew this was one we had to have. All full of euro-ey goodness, and painstakingly historically accurate too.

btw: I know I said in the top10 video that everything past #10 was in no particular order, but TBH, this really is #11... it's this high because I kept swapping it in and out with Fresco when I was ordering the geeklist

At first glace, this seems to be just another hastily thrown together tie in to the hobbit films, but then one notices it's by Rudiger Dorn!!! Dorn's recent Istanbul is fantastic, and Goa is one of the all time classics, so maybe there's more to Smaug's treasure than meets the eye?

A heavy open ended civilization builder which is being developed openly with the feedback of the BGG community has gone quiet for the last 18 months, but I really like everything about the philosophy behind it, so here's hoping it makes a resurgence in 2015.

A storytelling game that really caught my attention a couple of years ago on Kickstarter. I'd really like to find a good 2p compatible pen&paper RPG that Jen and I can play together, and I've been hoping for quite awhile that this might be the one, but it seems to have been caught in development hell for awhlie now...

I can't believe it's taken this long to get a boardgame version of the classic videogame Theme Park! There have been themepark-themed games before, but this looks like the real deal - a heavier economic simulation of all the day to day facets of running a major theme park. Can't wait!

Designer Andrei Novac had a great year in 2014, and we liked everything he put out: Praetor, Progress & Versailles. And so of course I'm interesting in his big new game for 2015, all about trying to get the best haul of fish while surviving the big storms!

Can't wait to see what this game looks like, as it's from the same designer as Onirim, who is known for his trippy dreamscape art and gameplay. This time he's making a tower defense game where, in a dream, the forest comes to life to protect itself from a spreading fire, and the animals of the forest can be recruited to help as well. We really like Onirim, and so are excited about this one too!

I've already done a runthrough for this expansion to Dark Horse, which turns a solid fun game into arguably the best dice/worker placement game on the market. Absolutely fantastic stuff... can't wait to play it for real instead of a prototype!

I love the theme of runing a 19th century newspaper in New York, sending my reporters all over town trying to get the big scoops, and then literally laying out the front page to get the most readers/points. Everything sounds awesome, though I wonder how well the area majority gameplay works with 2. Apparently players get to do double turns in 2p, which is... interesting. Wasn't a fan of it in 5 Tribes, but we'll see how it goes here!

When I was at the Cardboard & Sun event in Greece 2 years ago, I was lucky enough to sit down with the designers of this game and learn a lot about it, and let me say, I'm REALLY excited to get a chance to play this game. Hopefully it'll see the light of day soon!

Basically, it's a business sim, with the central conceit being that while yours and my businesses may be competing heavily throughout the game, occasionally we have to put our differences aside to prevent major, game ending catastrophes from happening. You may recall I LOVED this approach to semi-co-op in CO₂, and can't wait to try it here, in SPAAAAAAAACE!

Got to play this at Gencon 2014 (where Ryan Metzler & his wife destroyed me!) and I liked it quite a bit. Kind of a Macao advanced planning game mixed with territory expansion running an old west mining operation. Should be going on Kickstarter early in 2015, and I'll be covering it then!

Now, we really like the idea of word games, but we're really not interested in abstract games. What to do, what to do... oh hey! A fantasy adventure word game, where the words you're trying to form are spells you cast, and you're trying to beat certain word challenges, which represent dungeons.

AWE-SOME! BRING IT!
