I'm trying to focus in on those games most worthy of my attention when I go to Origins 2015 this year!

A few of these titles are also available for early purchase--and it's worth noting which to make sure they don't get sold out (if I indeed want a copy...)

So, here's my list, in no particular order...

Was interested in Heores Wanted after seeing Rahdo's run through of the base game...would be worth checking out.

Really not sure what the gameplay is like--but I'm hoping it's a distilled version of the GoT board game.

Not a keen fan of tower defense, but the complexity of the invading forces sounds unique. Would like to see if Greater Than can break into the true board game market too.

Something different from Klaus Teuber (a reworking of Barbarossa, apparently). Another title for the crossover/newbie gamers out there.

Where did this game come from? Aesthetically, it looks right up my alley. Would love to demo to see if the gameplay is too. Plus, it's Matagot--lotsa good Francotheme stuff from them thusfar.

Not sure If I can look past the pointless substitution of a "z" for "s"--but it sounds like an updated Wiz-War, which sounds good to me!

Edit: I see this is not like Wiz-War at all...more like dice combat King of Tokyo. Might give it a miss.
