According to this post, the opening of FFG Event Center will include "a glimpse of an upcoming product that’s set to storm onto tabletops this spring!".

Also according to the post "We’ll unveil this product exclusively to Grand Opening attendees, days before the worldwide announcement!".

So, who is going to attend and post the information ASAP ?

They're hardcore implying that it's not going to be a boardgame. My guess is minis.

Since Upper Deck and Blizzard are parting ways, maybe FFG will be inheriting the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game and World of Warcraft Miniatures Game.

If they give WoW TCG the LCG treatment, I am SO on board.
But I doubt it.

It could be DungeonQuest (which they are doing), though I doubt it. The other things that we know FFG have been working on that I'd like to be are:

1. Song of Ice and Fire adventure game
2. 2nd Conan game. FFG has been working on a game totally different from Age of Conan, and if I remember correctly, it's miniatures (the rep called it a "tactics" game). Since they're suggesting it isn't a board game, this is my top guess.

3. Twilight Imperium Dune game

I was also thinking about Blizzard property, and as we've already had Starcraft and (World of) Warcraft, there need be little speculation on what it could be if it is.

Maybe it's an LMG : Living Miniature Game.
(I guess the game is "alive", not the miniatures, although that would be amazing )
Just a wild guess.

And don't forget the Gear of War option, and Reins of Power (if FFG decided to un-epic it).

I actually don't bet on any of my guesses above. I think this time they have something completely new up their sleeve.

5 more days to go ... (and 7 hours).

If FFG announces that they've picked up the WoW minis game I will build an alter to them in my front yard.

(or if it is a Starcraft minis game I'll be happy with that too)

I don't think there's a chance it's WoW. I think they are going to show the new game, and it's way too early to show a game they just got the license for.

StarCraft miniatures ? please no. I won't be able to hold myself, and I'm over my budget anyway.

Maybe it's a Diablo board game to tie in with the upcoming (someday) release of Diablo III.

Well, a guy can hope if it has to be a Blizzard tie in.

Doom System 3rd edition? I'm in

Even though I don't really like D3 the Diablo franchise.

But I'm leaning towards the TI-themed Dune reimagining.

Starcraft 2 is coming out this year so that would seem more likely.
D3 is at least a year away.

Maybe, but Starcraft 2 almost literally just Starcraft with some make-up. Marketing strategies aside, there's really not much reason to design "Starcraft 2 TBG", unless they're going to make it a tactical game, or in some other way, well, different from Starcraft TBG. (Unless they're planning on applying the Blizzard design philosophy to board games, in which case they'll just relabel their old SC TBG boxes and sell them with painted miniatures).

The more I think about it, the more I think it's something Blizzard related.

There's no need for another Starcraft game...although a Starcraft minis game would be sick.

I hope it isn't anything WoW. I'm sick of it.

Just a thought but how many games and products have they announced and/or released while we've been waiting to find out what these three games are?

I mean . . . seriously.

This isn't a complaint, mind you -- but I do find it interesting and amusing.

"RUNESTORM: The Miniatures Game."

Just a guess.

We know that there's a third boardgame. I'm hoping very very hard that it's the new Dune. :cry:

Until now the secret games have always been completely unheard of games. Dune has already been announced, so I don't think that's the game.

I"m pretty sure it's going to be Gears of War. We've all seen the photo's on flickr from last year and it hasn't been announced yet, so logically, well, logically to me, that's what it will be.

Technically, I'm playing all my FFG games on a tabletop.
This does not necessarily have to be a hint at a miniatures game.

It's been on the upcoming pages for months, that's pretty much an announcement. the other two were completely dark until their announcement on the front page.
