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:
May/Jun 2009
Mar/Apr 2009
Jan/Feb 2009
Nov/Dec 2008

There is also a subscription thread for this Geeklist series. If you wish to receive a notification when I post future versions of this list, go over to http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/415697 and subscribe.

This was actually released last year in a multilingual format by Gen X games, but FRED Distribution plans to bring it to the mainstream as part of their Gryphon Games line. This game features the horrid events of May 2nd, 1808, as Spanish soldiers and civilians in Madrid attempted to rebel against Napoleon's occupying forces. One player takes the role of the French, whose goal it is to eradicate the Spanish forces, and the other player takes the role of the Spanish, attempting simply to stay alive for 10 turns.

#20: Founding Fathers

Jolly Roger Games
Expected release: 2010

[Previous List: Just Missed, 176 Wishlists]

This game has its roots in the card-driven systems of Twilight Struggle and 1960: The Making of the President, but unlike those games, Founding Fathers will support up to five players. Players take on the role of delegates at the Constitutional Convention, each trying to put their own unique fingerprints on the writing of the U.S. Constitution. Each player will have their own unique abilities and positions with which they will influence other delegates.
