So I'm getting pumped about GenCon here in Indy coming up in a couple weeks. I thought it would be a good time to start checking on what new releases we might get to try and demo during our weekend of fun.

I'm not a true card holder of the "cult of the new", but it is fun to see the glitz and glamor of the dealer room

I'm really looking for games released in the last month or two that will definitely be available at the exhibition hall. Feel free to add more!

(There are a couple Z-Man releases I'm sad didn't make it. I would like to have seen the english Neruoshima Hex! and the redone Tales of Arabian Nights. Ah well.)

Adam West (the designer, not batman) is a local here in Indy. I know he'll be demoing this constantly and plenty of copies will be available for purchase.

It's a 4X space epic meant to be playable in a couple hours.

Z-Man's production of this has just hit stores. I'm sure he'll have some copies on hand.

It's by the fella who did R-Eco and you can definitely tell the resemblance. I'd definitely like to try it out.

I think english copies have been hitting shelves by now.

I'm pretty excited to try this one. Backstabbing and diplomacy squeezed into a 90 minute time frame. Too much fun! (Your grandfather must die!!!)

This one sneaked right under my radar. Pretty much exactly a middle ground between Scotland Yard and Fury of Dracula. I'd like to get a crack at this.

Another almost local publisher and designer. I'm sure copies will be around to be had. (I already have my pre-order copy in my hands.)

This is a very fresh tactical WWII squad level war game. It has very interactive game play with very little downtime.

Well, the actual game play doesn't sound too exciting, but c'mon, it's the Princess Bride!

I don't know if it'll be around, but I did respect the designers realistic review of it.

Well this one is an odd duck. A pretty deep and dry economic simulation game.

The publisher went out of business about the time this game hit shelves. So the one print run is all there is.

Unfortunately it just sounds too rough around the edges for me.

A little old at this point, but still rather new.

Uses a memory element to make up for the missing board tension. You have to slowly stock exposed cards, and opponents can knock them off the board before you can store them, so there's plenty of player interaction.

Still, I just don't think it'll be the same without plastic choo-choos.

Suppose you can probably find this about as well. Not many wargames set in modern day. And the LnL has always been an interesting impulse based squad wargame.

At least the new edition should be there I imagine. It's pretty, but it doesn't have that all important number everyone wants.

A little chaotic, but pretty fun sounding. Death abounds.

Immortal Eyes are doing some fun release events with this game.

Also check out their Transamerica Re-release (I know I will)

Forgot this long forgotten Essen gem.

Supposed to be a great Worker Placement game with tons of paths to victory all in under an hour.

Sounds a little obtuse to get into however...

I just paid attention, and the odds of this being around are good.

It's a follow up to the great "Last Night on Earth". I missed Flying Frog last year, but I'll be sure to catch them this year.
