From one of my favourite boardgame designer duos - Soledade and Santieiro. Delay from Essen Spiel 2016. Hopefully more polished than if released last year.

Interest level: MUST BUY!

DELAYED AGAIN coz they wanted to KS it.

Spielworxx's Civ game. But I'm a little weary of Spielworxx's bad customer service. My Solarius Mission is still unplayable from a missing sticker sheet.

Mike Keller of La Granja and Solarius Mission fame. Good choice to move away from the problematic assocation with Spielworxx and go with Quined Games which always have stellar component quality.

Designer of Ulm and his wife I presume? Not much news about this game yet.

Edit 1: Just watched a playthrough for this game. It's basically Kingdomino with blind bidding. I'm not very fond of abstract tile laying so I'm not interested in this game anymore.

Interest level: Not buying

Whenever FF gets overly ambitious, I get a little weary. 504 was meh, Fabled Fruit is just OK. Will see these 3 Fast Forward games are any good.

3 games in the Fast Forward Series: Fast Forward: FEAR, Fast Forward: FORTRESS, Fast Forward: FLEE.

(edit) Then FF announces another 3 more games and expansions! Finished!, Fabled Fruit: The Lime Expansion, Power Grid: Fabled Expansion. Seeing the quantity, I doubt the quality of these games. Hope he proves me wrong.
