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 2010
Nov/Dec 2009
Sep/Oct 2009
Jul/Aug 2009
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/the-buzzlist-anti... and subscribe.

At the Gates of Loyang
Design: Uwe Rosenberg (Agricola, Le Havre)
Publisher: Z-Man Games
Specs: 1-4 players, 120 minutes, Age 10+
Release: May 2010

[Previous List: #1; 1,056 Wishlists]

This is the third game in Uwe Rosenberg's "Harvest" trilogy. In this game, players must grow vegetables in order to sell them to customers--both regular customers who demand vegetables every turn, and casual customers who can be fulfilled at the player's leisure. Players must decide how best to buy and sow vegetables so that they can make sure to have the right ones at the right times. This is primarily a card game that once again features the fantastic art of Klemens Franz, and includes a variety of vegetable-shaped wooden bits.

Constantinopolis

[Previous List: #7; 375 Wishlists]

Constantinopolis has been in the works at Fantasy Flight for several years now, and with new box art released and a tentative release date, it looks like things are finally moving forward. The game will feature heavier Euro-style play 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.

Release: Q2 2010

[Previous List: #16; 225 Wishlists]

In Egizia, players take on the roles of monument builders in ancient Egypt. This is a worker placement game where the twist is that play of workers must follow the flow of the Nile--once a player take a certain worker spot, every subsequent worker must be played "downstream". Players must accumulate victory points while making sure they can feed their workers, factoring in the uncertainty of how much the Nile will flood.

[Previous List: #10; 284 Wishlists]

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. It remains anyone's guess as to if and when this game will actually be released.

Additionally, the game introduces traps, which are mixed into the dungeon deck and present new challenges to adventurers who dare venture into the deeps.

Sturm Europa!
Design: Michael Tan
Publisher: Academy Games
Specs: 2-3 players, 120 minutes
Release: 2010

[Previous List: #15; 234 Wishlists]

Sturm Europa! is a strategic-level wargame that simulates the action of the entirety of the second World War in Europe. Armies are represented by wooden blocks, whose identities are not revealed until engaged in combat. The game has card-driven elements, but plays more like a traditional wargame than a typical CDG. A tech tree allows players to customize their battle plans. The game allows for 2-4 hour scenarios, or a 12-hour full game simulating the entire war.
