So the past few years I've made these lists so I can look back at them as things get released (or delayed.) For the most part, I've found my anticipations to match my final enjoyment of the games, but sometimes there ends up being a dud on the list. And of course, there's always those games I never even get to play. They either end up more costly than I can afford or I find my interest in them falling to the wayside as other games get announced. Also note, I really wasn't expecting to make this GeekList this year after how lackluster the last year has felt. Really thought the next year would be more of the same, so I was pleasantly surprised to realize just how many games I'm truly anticipating playing. And of course, not everything that sounds good or has caught my eye is listed here. Trying not to let this list get too far out of hand! But anywho, here's my list for this upcoming year.

Enjoy.

Oh man... what can I say that I haven't said before?!? This game was on both of my previous lists and with each delay, and subsequent update, the game just rises higher and higher on my anticipation scale. It looks glorious! I can NOT wait! If this game is half as wonderful a I feel it will be, it's guaranteed to enter my Top 5 Games of All Time list. Could it even dethrone Cosmic Encounter as #1?!? Will soon hopefully find out.

Love the movie! And ever since I watched the gameplay demo with Rob Oren, I've wanted to play this game. Looks awesome! The minis look great. The gameplay looks exciting. The artwork top-notch. Everything about this game just screams out "FUN!"

This is the KickStarter I most wish I didn't have to skip. Stupid finances. Black Plague is one of my favorite games and this stand-alone expansion looks to add even more excitement to the gameplay. I love the Orc minis and love the horde build-up mechanic. Sounds exhilarating!

A fantasy, open-world, legacy-like co-operative adventure made by the same guy who brought us Xia: Legends of a Drift System? Count me in! If this game is anywhere as good as that one, it's sure to become a favorite.

In all honesty, I already have more Arcadia Quest than I will probably ever fully explore. And out of every expansion that's ever been announced, this one is the one I've felt the least amount of anticipation for. But still, it's Arcadia Quest which is my second or third favorite game of all time so I'm going to want it. Plus the mounts look adorable!

So I have yet to play Gloom of Kilforth (the best looking game on this planet), and probably should play that first, but still, I do want this stand-alone expansion. Hopefully one day. For both.

I LOVE Conan! One of my favorite themes and one of my favorite games. I also like Batman. Not the biggest fan, but it's a theme I don't mind exploring. And if the gameplay is anywhere as good as Conan, I'm sure I would find enjoyment within this game.

As this coming year goes on, and this game gets it's delays, I really have a feeling it will end up much higher on next year's list.

I enjoy the stories of Sleepy Hollow. So when I stumbled upon this game, I was immediately intrigued. And then I learned more about this game and became even more intrigued. All new characters, Scooby-Dooing though a mystery.. I'm in. And the Fear mechanic sounds interesting. Really want to give this one a try.

It's a Hall or Nothing production so of course it's going to look good on the table. I'm sure I could get someone to play it with me due to that fact alone. Maybe even my wife!

With the cancelling of the awesome Wits & Wagers: Epic Geek edition, I was excited to see this new version announced. I don't get to play W&W very often, but when I do I enjoy having player powers. Adds so much more to the game!

I'm not really in a place in my life where I can really get into a miniatures game. But if I was, this one would be high on the short list of possibilities. The gameplay looks solid and the minis look amazing. I also can't wait to see what all other periods/themes they decide to incorporate into the Time of Legends line. King Arthur? Ghengis Khan? Alexander the Great? Robin Hood? There's definitely a lot they could do with this.

Honorable Mention

I am not a fan of the show. I've watched a few episodes, but never really got into it. But I do like the premise of the show (just not the campiness so much.) The board game sounds interesting though. Reminds me a little of Battlestar Galactica which is another game I enjoyed even though I was never a fan of the show. Just call me intrigued.

I know very, very little about this game other than it looks wonderful, especially for a euro! If the gameplay is half as nice as the artwork, it's sure to be enjoying to play. Plus I need more euros in my life.

Probably Disqualified

This would be high on the list but it should be released very soon. If for some reason it doesn't come out, it would probably be around #5 on this list. But no matter, my gaming buddy has this preordered so as soon as he gets it, we will be playing it. Can't wait!

This should be coming out within a few weeks. But even still, I doubt I would get to play it till sometime next year. And I REALLY want to play this with my boys! Looks like some really good, story-driven, adorable fun.
