It seems as if every other game released is utilizing the viking theme. Its being ran into the ground like the Lovecraft mythos.

no matter how deep the hole gets a great game will still rise above any "been-done" concern

Themes I'd like to see more of:
Soviet Union/Cold War (not as a war game, but more like the recent Kolejka)
African themes
Space exploration (think Leaving Earth/Elon Musk, not Xia or Cosmic Encounter)
Central Asian/Silk Road
Amazon rainforest

I can agree on the African themes. Hardly ever see those.

Someone posted about this fad months ago, but I thought there weren't that many games about vikings at the time and argued against it. I was wrong. Publishers took a really long time to realize that vikings are cool and popular, and it seems that suddenly everyone wants to compensate for the time lost. Now I only wonder how long it will still take for publishers to realize the same thing about ninjas.

Don't panic, Mars is coming to the rescue in 2017, by october next year almost 9 of every 10 games is gonna have a rust red cover and a mechanic for growing potatoes fertilized with your meeples' crap.

Looking forward to the inevitable Viking Zombies attacking a Mars Colony party card game (now on KS!).

You forget Cthulu-possessed zombies attacking the railroad networks of Martian Mediterranean trader vikings on a hex grid party card game.

They almost certainly will somehow bring in Cthulhu on Mars!

I was thinking of vikings and zombies battling across the surface of Mars. Surefire Dice Tower top 10.

And weird theme mash-ups as in Smash Up and Heroscape. That seems pretty common among gamers though.

Vasel made a big deal about Cry Havoc. When I actually played the game I found it to be kind of boring.

Woah, this isn't a Vasel-bashing thread.

Disagreeing with Vasel doesn't equate to bashing him.

bash - to hurt or damage (something) by hitting or beating

disagree - to have a different opinion : to fail to agree

Serial Murder is High Risk / High Reward though I am thinking.
