Comments: Game about India in the 16th century by the Brands. I really love Village. This looks like a race game with dice worker placement. The initial images have very cool art. Perhaps my first buy this year.

Comments: The first time I played Lorenzo I didn't like it at all, but I give it another chance with the Leaders expansion, completely changes the game. Definitely recommend always playing with the leaders, this expansion adds another column and new cards. Definitely interested.

Comments: Unique theme, great custom meeples, worker placement and card drafting, thats enough to put this on the list. Really curious to get more details. The first set of play reports seem to be all positive.
Status: Research more Pickup at Fair
Update: Lot of good buzz coming from Gencon, looks like my kind of game.

Comments: A surprise to a lot of people, 7 Wonders is my favourite game of all time, of course with expansions added. It is also my most played game, any thing 7 Wonders would be an Insta buy. Too bad it is only a leader pack but Im not complaining!
