Edit: Bumped up to must-buy. It's only a tiny card game after all.

I haven't played many Splotters yet but not for lack of enthusiasm. This sounds like a great combination of theme and mechanisms.

Edit: Bumped the status down a bit because of the high price point.

I love games which use the game box as a component. Awaiting rules.

Edit: Read the rules. The game box isn't really used in the game, you might as well put the board you put on it directly on the table instead. However, the rules have some very interesting mechanisms in them. I'm bumping this up to "Probably buy"

An opportunity for Peer Sylvester to redeem himself after Singapore.

Edit: Read the rules. Sounds quite dry but with interesting choices to be made. A lot would depend on how tight the money is and how tense the competition for hut spaces is.

Edit: I'm willing to give Peer another chance for €25

A quick multiplayer abstract game (I know, I know, there's a die so it's not a pure abstract). I'm interested! And at the cheap price, it's definitely worth a gamble.

The only game in the Tempest line that sounds intriguing to me but not coincidentally also the only one whose rules haven't been released yet.

Edit: Read the rules and it sounds like a good mix of area control, card drafting and lots of special powers. Also reread the rules for Mercante and Courtier and they have grown on me. If there's a great deal on the whole Tempest bundle, I'll be very tempted.

Edit: There's a deal but so far it doesn't sound tempting enough. I moved Dominare up to "Probably buy" though.

The clock mechanisms sound potentially very interesting. Awaiting more information.

Edit: Wow, that's an incredibly ugly preliminary cover

Edit: The new cover is a big improvement. Got a peek at the rules and it seems fun.

I like the idea of a game based around building card houses. Judging from the pictures, the card house building part is working great, waiting on information about the game part.

Edit: Having read the rules, the game part seems pretty disappointing but the material looks so nice I'm still retaining some interest.
