With the myriad sources of game news coming out of hundreds of publishers, large and small, it's difficult for even the informed gamer to know which releases to look forward to. This list is an attempt to aggregate what the BGG community as a whole is anticipating, omitting my own personal biases as much as I can.

Basically, this is a list of new releases sorted by the number of wishlists they are on. I'm using BoardGameNews's excellent Gone Cardboard page as my master list of releases. Of course, BGN only highlights North American releases, so I'll do the same. I'm going to omit reprints of old games, except in the case where they're different enough to warrant new BGG game entries.

In any case, in the age of information overload, hopefully this list can help focus our rabid obsessions on games truly deserving of the hype. If there's enough interest, I may make this sort of list a regular feature.

629 Wishlists
Francisco Nepitello, Marco Maggi & Roberto Di Meglio
Fantasy Flight Games
2 to 4 players
Expected release: February 2009

This figures to be another epic game in the Fantasy Flight tradition. In this game, you will take the role of one of four kingdoms, increasing your power by vying with the other kingdoms directly, as well as influencing Conan to undertake adventures on your kingdom's behalf.

Martin Wallace
Mayfair Games
2 to 6 players, 120 minutes
Expected release: 1st Quarter 2009

This is a reworking of Martin Wallace's classic train game, Age of Steam. Supposedly, this game will be more forgiving than the original Age of Steam, but at the same time not subject to the imbalances of Railroad Tycoon.

Expected release: December 2008

In this interstellar civilization-building game, you take control of a race of beings in search of a new homeworld. You have to expand your territory, develop your technology, and interact with other races to create the best civilization by the time your own sun goes supernova.

The release of this game is very imminent: some people have already gotten their pre-order copies, but it has not yet hit general distribution.

This is a reworking of the 1985 classic by the same name. Dubbed as a "storytelling" game, this game promises to immerse players into the world of the Arabia of legend, where they will undertake quests and make their destiny.

Vlaada Chvátil

Expected release: January 2009 (?)

This is the (big) expansion to Vlaada Chvátil's amazingly popular Galaxy Trucker. The expansion will have pieces to allow for a fifth player, as well as a new alien species and special "adventure" cards that players can individually insert into the event deck.

Already released in Europe, this figures to hit the States sometime early in 2009.

Constantinopolis will be a heavier Euro-style game that will draw inevitable comparisons to Puerto Rico. Like Puerto Rico, this is a game in which players select roles in order to build, produce, and ship goods.

Despite apparently having been in the pipeline since 1999, little is known about this game. Players will take the roles of heads of state and engage in global politics in a near-future setting.

This is the first in a planned series of "Battles of Napoleon" games, in which players will reenact Napoleonic battles. This wargame will be staged at a tactical and operational level, and the rules complexity will facilitate both experienced and neophyte wargamers.

2 to 4 players, 30 minutes
Expected release: January 2009

Despite similarities in title and art, this game has little to do with Vlaada Chvatil's Through the Ages. In fact, this game was designed by Matt Leacock of Pandemic fame. In this game, players will roll and re-roll dice to gain resources that allow them to roll more dice in subsequent turns, gain special abilities, or just score points. However, getting too greedy with dice rolls can lead to catastrophe.

Veritas truly has a unique theme: players represent "truths" trying to preserve themselves in the books of medieval monasteries. Unfortunately, these monasteries have a penchant for catching on fire. Further details on this game, including release information, are somewhat of a mystery, though, and it has been in the pipeline since Essen 2007.
