List of 2015 Games of Interest - Those already kickstarted and those being released this year.

While I was thinking 2015 was looking bleak awhile ago, the number of new games by quality designers is fabulous. That was a comment I made just before GenCon but since then they keep leaking out of the woodwork & having trouble keeping up with the games I am interested in. Loving how this hobby is booming right now - but each year is getting tougher on the wallet !


Kickstarters Received:


Soulfall - Recently received ... LOVE the artwork & looking forward to trying this soon

Police Precinct - Recently arrived ... We've had fun playing it so far but I am already concerned about replayability or rather the game's ability to keep my interest. Perhaps the "bad cop" will give this game the legs it seems to need ?

Hoyuk - Anatolia & Obstacles - Received & ready to try it out. The Obstacles are larger than I expected & should make a big change.

Mottainai - Looks like a cool little game from designer of Glory to Rome, Innovation

Moongha Invaders - Finally !!

Tesla vs. Edison - Was pleasantly surprised but how much I like the mechanics of this game. I am incredibly excited to try this.

Epic Card Game - I am wildly excited about this game - This looks like an amazing game by the same designers as Star Realms. Love the artwork, love the way it sounds like it plays ... I am thinking this has the potential to be a HUGE, classic game. Can't wait to see ...

Between Two Cities - Looks promising but perhaps a little light

Above and Below - Another interesting design (and fabulous artwork) from Ryan Laukat

THE GALLERIST - Of course !

HORDES OF GRIMOOR - Yet another Small box game ... they are hit or miss for me ... but always unique and interesting to try. Price point was right to try this one !

Anticipated 2015 Kickstarter deliveries:

Tokaido Collector's Edition - Couldn't be more excited !

Age of Conan - Adventures in Hyperboria - August ?

Hands in the Sea - Glad I heard about this through Heavy Cardboard !

Ancient Terrible things & expansion - Thinking this might get a lot of play

Far Space Foundry - Sounds intriguing

Posthuman - I love games that create a dynamic environment where the situation evolves ... and I can already feel the tension as we race for the city gates, with those falling behind turning into our enemies as we press forward

Foreign King Medium weight area control game that looks very promising

Mare Nostrum: Empires - Looks different enough from the original and seems to be focused on removing the original game's shortcomings. It also has some great stretch and add-on goals. Still trying to justify the huge neoprene playing board !

Lord of the Ice Garden - Can't wait ... Not sure if it will make the 2015 cut though

Achaia - Same publisher as Lords & they will ship together. While initially reluctant to back this, it has enough cool mechanics that it could be interesting ... Time will tell

THRASH 'N ROLL - Not excited about the artwork but had to give this game a try based on it being designed by Krzysztof Matusik

Carson City: Horses & Heroes - Had to have this ... took advantage of the free shipping to also pickup HaspelKnecht & Xanadu both of which I was looking at anyways !

BOMARZO - Looks interesting & I am really impressed with the production quality of Giochix games !

IKI - Interesting little game with incredible artwork. Not sure about gameplay - got me in a moment of weakness

2016:

Pillars of Eternity - While trying to cutback on kickstarters, this one kept poking me in the eye every time I looked at it - so I gave in

Millennium Blades - What a clever design ... This one will take way too long - want it now !

Alien Frontiers - Big Box - Liking this primarily for the storage ... Thinking Alien Frontiers has already outgrown itself

Ninja Camp - Looks like fun ... but maybe a little light. Hoping I don't regret this one !

Gloomhaven - Had to do it ... has potential to be amazing

Scythe - Auto purchase for me, based on Stonemaier Game's track record and the artwork alone !

Innovation Deluxe - Great game being repackaged with all new artwork and 2 new expansions ... hopefully in a nice funky gold box if we can hit that stretch goal

Sword & Sorcery .... not the type of game I typically will support but this one has caught my attention. I may back out of it if they add too many "add-ons" being a completest but not wanting to sink hundreds of dollars into this game

7th Continent Looks like it has potential to be an incredible game - could not take the chance of missing out of a great game with so many KS exclusive stretch goals

Inhabit the Earth - Richard Breese ! Know little more ...

Simurgh - Andrei Novac, Dragons, Worker placement - sure, I'll check that out

LEVEL OF INTEREST:

AVAILABILITY: KICKSTARTER starting has been pushed back to 2016 after playtesting is complete

I have no 18xx games and have never played one. However, since I started listening to HeavyCardboard, my curiosity has grown to the point where I looked for a good entry point into these games. 18OE sounds like it would have been a good entry point but also sounds like it would be near impossible to get at a reasonable price.

Rulebook for 182C is out, Artwork is essentially complete and Playtesting has begun - I want to watch thios one so I will have the opportunity to get in on this one ...

Definitely falls into the category of "Worth Watching" this year while I continue to read up on this genre !

LEVEL OF INTEREST:

AVAILABILITY: Base game starting wider distribution at Essen 2015.
Deluxe Version coming to Kickstarter later this year/early next ...

Looks interesting and is getting wonderful reviews - Need to look into this in more depth

It will take us some time to prepare the deluxe edition. The core mechanics will not change, deluxe is more about components like bigger cubes, board and wooden markers for ninjas.

We are also creating special rules for the ninja chieftain but they will be available for download.

So all in all, the deluxe edition is more a cosmetic change for people who feel strange seeing Polish text on the box as the game is fully language-independent and we will provide printed English rulebooks with the game in Essen.

More 7 Wonders ? Of course - they are not yet at 7 expansions !

I am not so sure of this one though - as it is solely a 2 Player game and I already have too many 2-Player games ... Even still, I will most likely add this to my collection of all things 7 wonders

LEVEL OF INTEREST:

AVAILABILITY: Fall Kickstarter for 2016 Delivery

Just learnt about this and it sounds amazing, while also expensive.

Reading the description of the game and how the story evolves, it strikes me that it shares similarities to both Pathfinder and to Gloomhaven conceptually but certainly not in mechanics. 1000 Cards !

Love the sheer scope of this game & feel I might really be missing out on something unique if I were to pass up on this - but I definitely also need to research it further - at which point my level of interest will either tail off or grow I am sure !

Kickstarted !

AVAILABILITY: Plaid Hat GenCon 2015 Release

Don't know much yet - Love what I have seen of the artwork but Waiting to see how it differentiates itself from Mage Wars, Summoner Wars & Wiz-War !

Dead of Winter is fun ocassionally but never grabbed me the way I hoped it would so. Even though I am unsure about Vega's games I will give this game consideration based on the theme and the Plaid Hat production.

UPDATE 07/25/15 Wow ... this is looking incredible and has clearly differentiated itself from those other games. Will definitely be acquiring this and expect it to be the Game of GenCon this year

Interesting "poker hand" game - ala Doomtown but multiplayer and sounds like with more functionality. Was not impressed with Doontown when I tried it but the boys at Punching Cardboard have convinced me to look at this one more closely.

AVAILABILIITY: Geek store sometime this fall apparently ...

LOVE LOVE this concept ... my kids get advent calendars with chocolates or legos in them - so why I can't I get one with something I want inside.

Trying VERY hard not to look at what the contents are ... as I really want to be surprised everyday. I loved the suggestion that Rahdo had which is if you open a door that has an expansion for a game you own then you play that game that day !! What a fabulous idea ... seriously CANNOT wait !!

I will of course purchase it to keep my alea collection intact regardless so I have not spent any time researching it - I will read about it when I own it.

LEVEL OF INTEREST:

AVAILABILITY: Kickstarter to run in February 2016, GenCon 2016 release

First in a series of 5 games by Dirk Knemeyer (designer of Tesla vs Edison) and Rob Daviau (Risk Legacy, ...). The intent of these games is that the "game state" after the first game will flow into the second game and on and on ...

It is intended to be a "Civ" game which would then take place over the course of 5 Epic games with decisions made in the earlier games influencing the later games.

Sounds unique and too interesting to not be interested in following up on

The designers of Tzolk'in & Marco Polo are at it again ...

The Empire, formed by three Kingdoms, has a period of wealth and prosperity. Each Kingdom is governed by a council of four nobles. The members of six influential families sit around in the councils and lead the Kingdoms. Players hold the roles of rich merchants who seek to obtain permits to build their own Emporium inside the cities of the three kingdoms. Whoever take more permits, while also placing their Emporium in the best places, will be the most famous merchant and will win the game. But pay attention to the Emperor! He can allow to build without permits!

Here is a snippet from Eric Martin News:

Eclipse: Shadow of the Rift introduces several new mechanisms to Eclipse, including Time Distortion, Evolution and Anomalies, as well as several new Rare Technologies, Developments and Discoveries. It includes two new player boards with three new different alien species from which to choose.
