Last year on Decemeber 30th I posted: Subject: What new game are you looking forward/purchase in 2011?

I'm Wondering what games did you buy or not buy?

For myself I listed Alien Frontiers as a game that was on my hit list for 2011, funny that i did not buy it. I found myself playing the game at other friends that i never got around to getting it. Another game I thought I would buy was Lords of Vegas and that was another i didn't get around to buying.

This year I hope to have:
Cyclades Hades Expansion
Memoir'44 Campaign Book II
Age of Empires III expansion
More Mansions of Madness expansions (?)

I can't wait to see how I do come this time next year. Happy New Year Everyone!!!

I'll probably pick up Fortress America. I'm seriously looking at some of Worthingtons upcoming releases. Most interested in their CW Valley Campaign, 1862. As far as playing, I'm not sure. I've a lot of heavy design work ahead.
Happy New Year and best wishes for 2012.

There is a new version of Fortress America coming out by Fantasy Flight, and I'm excited about that one. (Odd, there doesn't seem to be a BGG entry for it yet)

Count me in as another excited for Wiz War. Though I never played the original, it looks like a cool *beer and pretzels* game.

I'm also looking forward to any expansions for the awesome new game I recently got, Core Worlds.

That is it for now, don't know too much about what else is coming out.

Diablo III

For board games? Nothing really. I'm more into my beloved videogames lately due to the inherent hassles built into board gaming (reading rules and trying to find regular opponents).

In the end I only got Eclipse of those 5 games! Still, 2 of them aren't actually out yet so they do make my list for this year as well:

Gosu: Kamakor
Battle Beyond Space
Rex: Final Days of an Empire
Alien Frontiers: Factions (I've kickstartered this)
Omen: A Reign of War (I've kickstartered the 2nd edition of this as well)

I will almost definitely pick up Trajan as I haven't been this excited about a game since Macao.

Besides that possibly Hawaii, Village, Santiago de Cuba, or Walnut Grove depending on review.

Edit: poster below reminded me of two more games I might get: Flash Point and PR Anniversary.

Im hoping to get at some point
Twilight Struggle
Puerto Rico Deluxe
Ticket to Ride: Europe
Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization
Flash Point: Fire Rescue

I know they are not all new games, but from the feedback on the forums they sounds really good. As im still building up a collection of board games I hope they make a fine addition.

Trajan should be at my house next week! Plus Walnut Grove ain't a bad game at all.

As far as things that are coming out, Wiz War and Omega Centauri.

I actually have one video game, Diablo 3, that I have been waiting years for.

Board games I am very interested in are
Order of Professional Sorcerers (OOPS)
A Few Acres of Snow.
Summoner Wars
Pirates Cove

I will probably look into adding some expansions to Memoir 44, and adding a few maps for TTR since they are games my son will play.

Happy New Year and happy gaming

This one caught my eye as it's what my wife does for a living (Purchasing & planning)so we're interested to see how well it captures things.
She has wondered if she'll feel like playing it after a hard day at work though

My purchases that I am still wanting to make this new years are:

Colonial: Europe's Empires Overseas
A Few Acres of Snow
And maybe Rex: Final Days of an Empire, but that'll be a try before I buy.

Of course, I am always still on the hunt for a reasonably priced Advanced Civilization

And Trajan will be at my house as well this week.

(MW Chapel there's a competitively priced copy of Colonial in the BGG Marketplace. It's in excellent condition. I know because I played it last

Missed your post last year so did not add to your thread, but I was fortunate to get several of my top picks for last year.

As for 2012...

Eclipse - I have bought into the great talk about this game.
Colonial: Europe's Empires Overseas
Runewars: Banners of War - This will be a must buy. Runewars gets grade table time for me.
The Castles of Burgundy - I want to get my hands on this Feld title.
Vinhos - Not sure this will ever be distributed to the US..

I'm hoping Tom Lehman's The City is going to be published in English this year. Auto-buy for me.

I'm also hoping to pick up Leo Colovini's Clans for my birthday. It's out of print and not too widely available, but I really enjoyed playing it a few years ago and it's been on my radar ever since. The other 'secret color' game I have is Quicksand which, while quick and kinda fun, can be frustrating if you fail to draw many cards in your own secret color. Clans is definitely the better of the two, by far.

I'm also hoping Gryphon will publish Venture and/or Monad in their Bookshelf Series, in which case I'll get them both.

So, not too many on my 'must have' list - I'm pretty happy with my collection, and have a number of games I want to get to the table more that I already own.
