OK, the list has been updated with many of the new releases and I have removed ones that didn't make or were released earlier. But the juggling around seems to have lost the user comments (sorry!). I also need to go back and add some comments to some of the new entries.

This is also a definite buy for me. I'm a sucker for anything with a train theme.

Looks like good news for Hans im Glück as this game is get very good word-of-mouth from Essen as being an improvement over the original.

Note that this is coming out in English from Rio Grande Games.

I am going to wait-and-see on this one. I wasn't impressed by the rules for "War: Age of Imperialism" and haven't even played it yet. I'm sure there will be great bits, but will there be a great game?

This one has just made it to my buy list based on the article by Greg Aleknevikus in The Games Journal - http://www.thegamesjournal.com/reviews/Bang.shtml

When I first heard about it a month or two ago, I thought it was just a Western themed version of Werewolf with a few more special powers. But this seems to add a bit more to the formula and should be a great closing game.

Here's a new addition. Looks quite interesting just because of the unusual theme. I'll probably be picking this one up, unless the reviews are dreadful.

OK, here is a new one. The artwork looks great (and how can it not with Doris on it). But the designer and the publisher are unfamiliar to me, so this on is on the Wait-and-see list.

It looks like this one is actually going to be named War & Sheep. Not the best title, but at least it conveys the theme a bit better. This game would be my pick of the three.
