Where is the best place to find a list of boardgame release dates? Boardgamenews.com use to have a "what's shipping" column, I don't see it anymore. The closest thing I can find is a list on thoughthammer. Thanks.
Yeah, I moved that section to the header in my redesign, but it caused trouble on various browsers, so I ditched it. Frankly it was a pain to keep up with since I had to post each item individually in addition to updating Gone Cardboard. If I were more of a programmer (read, knew anything about programming), I could perhaps do an automated whosiwhatsit to handle such things.
BGN's Gone Cardboard (http://www.boardgamenews.com/index.php/boardgamenews/C50/) does list when games were released, so you can check out what was released in the most recent month. I've looked into sortable tables so that you could organize the table by date instead of just publisher, but again my programming skills are minute.
Another possibility is to monitor the Alliance Online Catalog (http://www.alliance-games.com/publicaccess/). Alliance is one of the main North American distributors, and you can click on "new releases" then a date to see what came out when. "Entry date" shows you new items being listed in the catalog. Lots of miniatures, CCGs, role-playing titles and other geek paraphernalia is included alongside board and card games.
