2017 could be a fantastic board game year!
This is a watch list from the point of view of a medium/heavy euro gamer that plays most of the games with his SO (so it should be 2—player friendly with exceptions).

This year could be a fantastic year. The new legacy/campaign games with euro mechanism and this is only the beginning. I will be going to Essen Spiel this year, and I hope the trend of 2017 will be continuing there. This GeekList will be updated during the year.

UPDATE: preparing for Essen Spiel

Rating System
The hot shit I'm waiting for! MUST HAVE
interesting games
could be relevant. We'll see.
just on the list for no reasons.

My Top 4 Games of 2016 months
1. Vinhos Deluxe Edition
2. The Gallerist
3. Pandemic Legacy Season 1
4. Great Western Trail

THE TOP 5 Games of 2017!
About the ranking: I can not decide which game should be no.1 because every game in this TOP 5 is a MUST HAVE game and I will get them, and I'm hyped about them. That's why I put them in chronical order of their release date (when I will get them).

1. 7th Continent (Kickstarter backer. August 2017 - Waiting for almost 2 years)
2. Lisboa (Kickstarter/Spieleschmiede backer. August 2017 - Vital Fanboy)
3. First Martians (German version hopefully in Essen - I'm sooooo hyped!)
4. Pandemic Legacy Season 2 (Essen! - Love the first season)
5. Charterstone (maybe Essen, maybe a few weeks later - Stegmeier + Legacy)

Worker Placement Legacy Game

ESSEN SPIEL PRE-ORDERED
Stand 3-D100 (same as last year)

I've read every information there is at the moment.

It's a great combination of: the designer (Stegmeier - love his blog/videos. He is just a great guy), the mechanisms (worker placement) and the overall idea (legacy game).
This game could be a masterpiece!

Release for the German version: Maybe Essen Spiel maybe a few weeks later

A Worker Placement Legacy Game, what else to say! It could be a perfect game for me.
Astonishing graphics
Stonemeier's component quality.
Interesting theme: village building
soblue Never played a Stonemeier game. Not sure if it can live up to expectations whistle


"In Charterstone, a competitive legacy game, you construct buildings and populate a shared village. Building stickers are permanently added to the game board and become action spaces for any player to use. Thus, you start off with simple choices and few workers, but soon you have a bustling village with dozens of possible actions.

Your journey through Charterstone’s many secrets will last 12 games, but it doesn’t end there. Your completed village will be a one-of-a-kind worker-placement game with plenty of variabilities."

ESSEN 2017

played it & love it & will buy it at Essen.

First 1000 will get the free Joker Promo (Plan B not Pegasus)

the theme - "i love azulejos"
it's about Portugal
it looks beautiful
Promo: not sure if I will buy the 9€ joker promo (it's more like a mini-expansion).

Escape Room

2017 PRIOR ESSEN

After playing the PnP demo "the elite" I'm not 100% sure about it. The graphic design and the app integration are looking good. It the price point is reasonable I will try it.

I have to play the "Exit Das Spiel" escape rooms.

The look reminds me of T.I.M.E Stories
Like the puzzle/number mechanism
soblue Are the cards a little bit too small?

Unlock! Escape Adventures includes three separate scenarios for you to explore:

In The Formula, you enter a secret laboratory to recover a mysterious serum that has been developed by a scientist. Will you solve all the riddles and get out in less than an hour?
In Squeek & Sausage, you need to thwart the plans of the despicable Professor Noside!
In The Island of Doctor Goorse, you must visit the island of an eccentric antique collector billionaire and overcome its traps!

Essen Goal: Like last year with Cottage Garden. I didn't want to buy it but because of the hype.

The box cover would perfectly match "Cottage Garden"
But we have "Cottage Garden" why should we buy another expensive puzzle game. Patchwork is cheaper and perfect for 2 players.

Co-Op Storytelling Adventure Game

German Edition probably not ready for ESSEN SPIEL
goo ESSEN GOAL: Look at the game board, but probably not buying

A heavyweight Co-Op game with an excellent APP integration.
Built on the core of Robinson Crusoe.
I often thought to buy Robinson Crusoe. Now I'm waiting for this one.

Love the theme! and how it's implemented
Great App integration
6 scenarios and two long campaigns (one in legacy style) - 16 in total
like the scientific approach
I like Ignacy but never played his games.
soblue Maybe to random for us? (never played RC)
soblue better as a solo game than as a multiplayer?


I bought the book Mars by Leonard David and the TV show "Mars" by National Geographic just to immerse into this theme.

After the first reviews, I'm not sure if I will get it. It's a great game and I think I understand the rules but not sure if it's the right game for me and my SO.

"Pegasus DE: wird bei uns Ende des 1. Halbjahres erscheinen! "

"First Martians: Adventures on the Red Planet pits players against the hostile Martian environment and a whole host of new adventures and challenges. The immersion experience is further enhanced with an integrated app that maintains the balance and challenge throughout. Players have the option of taking on the design as a series of separate games, in a custom campaign mode in which each successive game builds on the last, or even an open world mode in which they are free to roam about the Martian surface and explore for as long as they can sur
vive."

Area Control / Card Drafting / Worker Placement

DEMO AT ESSEN?

Release 2018 (Kickstarter somewhere in 2017)

Two new Vital Lacerda games for me in 2016 (The Gallerist & Vinhos)
One new Vital Lacerda games in 2017 (Lisboa)


3 new Vital games in 1 year! That's enough at the moment. I guess I will skip this one (advanced reprint) and wait for the next new heavy game (hopefully his Mars game, maybe 2019/2020).

CO2 is the Lacerda game I was always eager to play, and now with this second edition & Ian O'Tools new graphic revision, it will be fantastic!

Lisboa will provide almost enough classic heavyweight euro games for this year.

Vital Lecerda heart
There's a rumor that Ian O'Tool is designing this.
Very thematic semi Co-Op system
Love the theme
Second edition with new game modes (full Co-Op, Solo play)

"This new totally re-designed edition will bring a completely new iconography, an entirely new rulebook with lots of 3D pictures for easy comprehension of the rules, more balanced gameplay, a new events deck, improved and streamlined mechanisms, upgraded wood components for the power plants instead of the cardboard tokens, while maintaining the beautiful illustrations on the board and cover, and all this with a shorter play length.

This version will also bring a cooperative mode of play. And a solo play based on goals."

Card Drafting / Set Collection / Route Building / Campaign with Storytelling

2017 PRIOR ESSEN

German Release?
Essen: English version?

I didn't back this game on Kickstarter. But it looks good, and I fancy the campaign mechanism. I played it on Tabletopia. I liked it, but I imagine there will be better campaign games released this year.
But probably I will pass.

It feels like a Co-Op game but it's competitive.
Love the "atlas" idea and the storybook.
Adore the graphic design of all of his games.
soblue possible that the storybook stories are just to inexpressive. (Like Above & Below)
soblue In the shadow of the other great storytelling games of 2017.
soblue Played it on Tabletopia. Not sure if mechanism will motivate for long.


"In Near and Far, you and up to three friends explore many different maps in a search for the Last Ruin, recruiting adventurers, hunting for treasure, and competing to be the most storied traveler. You must collect food and equipment at town for long journeys to mysterious locales, making sure not to forget enough weapons to fight off bandits, living statues, and rusty robots! Sometimes in your travels you'll run into something unique and one of your friends will read what happens to you from a book of stories, giving you a choice of how to react, creating a new and memorable tale each time you play."

Worker Placement

2017 ESSEN

A game for a world after Trump.

I'm following this for quite some time. It was on Kickstarter. I'm always keen about a beautiful worker-placement game in an not common scenario.

a post-apocalyptic theme
worker placement
soblue Doesn't convince me during the Kickstarter campaign.


Outlive is a management/survival game in a post-apocalyptic universe in which nature has overcome its rights amongst the world of Men. In Outlive, players have six days (turns) to send heroes gathering resources during the day, while avoiding threats from other players and reinforce their settlements during the night, trying to recruit new survivors and adapt to the new world. The specificities: movements and resource gathering are compelled by you heroes strength.

expansion.

Essen Goal: going to the booth and look at it. Maybe meet Asger again (great guy).

Booth LAUTAPELIT.FI HALL 3: L116

I love Flamme Rouge. Not sure if I will buy it. I will not play it often with more than 4 players. Are the 25€ worth only for the supply zone, cobblestone, breakaway variant, dummy teams? On the other hand, I don't have enough games that are suitable for 6 players...

In the past, I never played "expansions" often.
