I'm starting later than usual this year, not a lot on my radar at this point (except for a few Kickstarters).

Let's see where it ends up...

I'm curious about that Fable game system

Status: Try the game, probably wait for a French release

Update: I read the preview on Opinionated Gamers, it seems like it's a rather light game with a potential for a lot of evolution over time. I'm tempted by it but, as there is text on the cards and as it's a game my daughters might play before learning english, I'll probably wait for a French release

I've liked the two previous iterations so it's a sure buy.

Update: I've tried the game and it's good indeed! But, apparently, the French version will not be available in Essen but in the shops soon afterwards

Status: Must Buy, possibly waiting for the French version at my FLGS

After the success of Mombasa last year, I'm very interested in this one !

Update: I finally read the rules and, although quite complex, it really looks interesting and not really similar to other games I know. At this point, this is the game I'm the most enthusiastic about this year.

Status: Very probable buy

Game seems rather complex but interesting. However there is some in-game text so I'll probably wait for a potential French release (FunForge ?), which will also give me time to try the game or at least check some reviews.

I read the review on Opinionated Gamers, it seems good but I'm a bit afraid about the comments on "take that" cards and on randomness of card draws, two big concerns for me. So I won't buy it before trying it.
