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:
Jan/Feb 2009
Nov/Dec 2008

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.
