Every year I do a geeklist of what new releases are going to be at Gen Con Indy. With Origins winding down, I think I'm starting to develop a pretty good sense of what games will be available for: pre-release, actual release, and only available for demo.

This geeklist is meant for board games, RPG's, mini games and everything in between, so feel free to add.

Also please mention if the game is a confirmed release, or just a rumor. This list should serve as both a shopping list and a list of games that might be available to demo either in the exhibit hall or in the game library and pick-up play area. Hopefully publishers will use the pick-up play area similar to how the CABS board room is used to show off new games.

Should be a confirmed release (it may hit stores shortly before GC, but I'm not sure).

De Profundis expansion, confirmed.

Edit: Asmodee has just confirmed that a delay in the figure manufacturing has pushed the release back, and De Profundis is no longer a Gen Con release.
