I've been waiting for this since it was announced pre-Essen 2017, but more playtesting warranted them holding off on a release. Heard that it was going to hit Kickstarter late Q4 of 2017, but that time has come and gone. Hurry and release already!

Martin Wallace. Cthulhu. Trains. What else do you need out of life? Spiritual successor to A Study In Emerald.

Really hope the follow up 2018 title from the design team of Nuno Bizarro Sentieiro and Paulo Soledade blow me away since I had to go all of 2017 without one!

Shem Phillips' designs really resonated with me in both Explorers of the North Sea and Raiders of the North Sea (Shipwrights was a miss for us) and looking forward to the next step in his line. Artwork again by the Miko!

Was a huge fan of Issac's sophomore debut Gloomhaven, but not so much of his freshman outing in Forge War. Really hoping that his third design shows that his dungeon crawler prowess can translate to good euro mechanics.

Rob is a machine at getting these titles out. Hope this refreshes an old classic that helped me delve into the hobby.

I know it's an expansion, but I've been waiting for an official campaign to come out for this game for ages and while I'm glad The Wind Gambit fixed some issues for me with the base game, I'm hoping this will make it a permanent fixture in my collection.

Big fan of Cole Wehrle's work in An Infamous Traffic and John Company, but this looks like a track off the beaten path. Really looking forward to asymmetric play of this one.

Mindclash games have been on a hot streak with releases like Trickerion and Anachrony and I'm looking forward to getting this Kickstarted team-based area control game to the table once it delivers.

I've been looking to get some 18xx-esque games in my collection, but I think anything over the 3 hour mark would be pushing it for anyone else in my group. This says it'll offer all the depth but in half the time of a normal 18xx,so I'm hoping the 120-180 minute play time is accurate.

Love Custom Heroes and Mystic Vale, but really hoping that this one (the designer's true vision from the start) shows us how much cleaner card building is than deck building.

A 4x medieval realm-building euro game is all the information that I know. Is this what people thought Scythe would be?

Spiritual successor to Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar. Very curious to what this entails!

The Brands' designed one of my favorites of 2017 in Rajas of the Ganges. Legacy and eurogame? That seems like it might be right up my alley!

Rail game set in a land of magic and fantasy? Trains are never going away! Kickstarting in late Feb 2018.

Originally slotted to be a 2017 release, I think Empires of the Void II ended up being a larger than expected project for Ryan. A light two player Red Raven game is always welcome to see some table time in this house. Designed by Alf Seegert.

Looking forward to the follow up of Champions of Midgard as that quickly fell out of my favor. Curious if it implements a different mechanic than dice combat. Low on the list because I am wary...
