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.

I will post an updated version of this list about every two months. Here are previous lists:

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.

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.

This is a deduction game based on Umberto Eco's novel of the same name. Comparisons have been drawn to Mystery of the Abbey, another similarly-themed deduction game. This game involves a lot of bluffing: you are attempting to determine the identity of the other players while keeping your own identity hidden.

This is another "hot" Essen 2008 game, Rio Grande has recently announced they will be distributing it in the U.S.

This expansion to Richard Breese's game Reef Encounter introduces starfish, which prematurely consume coral reefs, as well as blue shrimp, which can help protect a player's larger reefs, though not in a reliable fashion. Additionally, a number of cards are added to trigger events within the game.

This expansion has been around in Europe for a couple of years; recently Z-Man has committed to publishing it for the U.S. market.

This is a set of over 50 scenarios and advanced campaign rules for the World War 2 wargame Memoir '44. The scenarios can be played in succession, with the results of one scenario affecting conditions in the next. Three theaters of operation will be covered: The Battle for Normandy in the summer of 1944, the Blitzkrieg to the West in 1940, and Operation Barbarossa on the Russian Front in 1941.
