This year I'd be even busier than before, with Days of Ire: Budapest 1956, [redacted]: Identity, and Anachrony. But still, that's no reason not to stock up on a few more games, even if the list of "games I'm interested in" have been steadily dwindling.

No guarantees yet whether the game will make it to Spiel in its final form, but we'll be there, showing the game off nonetheless. EXCITING!

Definitely just demoing this one, still it'll be nice to see the magnum opus finally being realised!

Competitive Orleans expansion? Finally.
Hopefully it'll be compatible with my TMG Deluxe copy. And hopefully in English.

Don't know if this game will be at Essen (KS shipped pre-gencon, plus smallish US publisher might mean it isn't), but if it is, I'm definitely buying.

I'm intrigued, plus the theme is great. But I already have (and yet to completely play through) Robinson Crusoe. Plus I'm not a big app person, but I have an open mind. We'll see.

Maybe finally a good Trek game? Altough the practically 3p only playercount, the bucketload of prelanned expnansions, and previous experience on Firefly are worrisome. Let's check out.
