I have made only couple of preorders recently, but I am willing to know what other games might be there that I am not even aware of.
Here is my preordered games, what are yours?



There's very limited information on Festung Europa, but I love PoG system and I just couldn't resist myself for not to order.
Should be released Q2 2016.



Kickstarted this one. I enjoyed A Few Acres of Snow very much, but it started to repeat itself in awhile. I am hoping this one takes one step further developing this great system. I have kickstarted three games before this. Two of them I didn't like and sold them, third one I still have, but going to sell it also.
Should be released Q1 2016.



I also ordered War of the Ring Anniversary Edition. Not much to say on this one, except I already know the game and like it very much. I don't have interest/time to paint figures, so this edition seems right for me. It's not maybe classical wargame, but feeled right to mention it also.
I believe its released Q2 or Q3 2016.


I have also P500'd, but not received yet Commands & Colors: Napoleonics Expansion #5. I didn't add it to this list with photo as its preorder time has already passed some time ago.

Most important of all (for me): Yanks: ASL Module 3

This is the only pre-order I absolutely must have and would never, ever cancel. I'll starve first. Ok, maybe not, but close.

I ordered it myself the moment I saw it was available... then checked the preorder count out of curiosity. 390 before me, and you can watch the number climbing up just by reloading the page every few minutes.

396 at the moment I'm writing this.

Fields of Fire Vol. II: ''With The Old Breed''

I am contemplating Yanks: ASL Module 3. Can someone help me understand why I should pre-order this versus ordering from an OLGS when it releases? At CSI I have a 3% loyalty discount, and you get free shipping at $100. I have never pre-ordered an ASL module. I just purchase them this way.

I playtested it. It is really good.




I playtested this, also. It is epic.





I backed the 2nd edition Kickstarters of the first two games and the new Texas Arrows in the 3-pack offer.





I backed the Kickstarter campaign because Worthington has ran of a string of gems lately, so no reason to think this is any different.




Deckbuilders and paratroopers. This has to be good. I backed the Kickstarter. This is shipping now.

The CSI discount (before customer loyalty) from retail on Hakkaa Päälle!: ASL Module 14 is 20%... so assuming Yanks will be at that level... you shouldn't preorder if you only care about price. The preorder discount from MMP is greater than the CSI discount, even with the additional customer loyalty discount... but not enough to make up for shipping costs.

So, yeah, only preorder direct if you're willing to pay around twelve dollars to get it early (I'd guess by about a month) and/or if you're concerned about it not making the preorder number it needs to be published (not really a concern for anything ASL-related).

The only preorder I have out there now is for Unpublished Prototype



since my copy of TSWW: Singapore will arrive on Monday. Unfortunately, it seems that Three Crowns Game Productions has ceased operations and I'll never see it.

Should make a nice Christmas present to myself.
Edit: This ain't gonna be here for Christmas. Maybe my birthday in March.


P500 stuck at about 126 forever.


I keep hearing it's shipping soon. Nothing definite though.


Kickstarted. Not sure if it qualifies as a wargame, but looks cool.


Edit: Forgot about this one!

Monty's Gamble: Market Garden - still needs a little over 100 to hit P500. Help me and others join in the fun and go pre-order a copy.

Hands in the Sea - great system; deck building with a purpose.

I too jumped on the chance to get some painted minis for what is one of my all time favorite thematic games



I just received a bunch of P500 orders. Here's what I have remaining.


Time of Crisis. After Sword of Rome, I'll by anything Wray puts out.

and

Any Cost Metz. Hermann is one of the nicest guys I've ever corresponded with. Everyone should go P500 all of his games!

Cataclysm: A Second World War Wendell's session reports sold me on it.
Fields of Despair: France 1914-1918 Looks like a fascinating reimagination of the classic block system. I'm expecting that it will tease you with the possibility of a climactic breakthrough, while making it very difficult to actually achieve. NOTE: Designed by the guy two posts above me in this list.
FAB: Golan '73 I love the FAB system; it's about the only auto-preorder for me.
