I spend way too much time on BGG. Knowing this to be true, I decided to actually do something productive and useful for my fellow Geeks while I'm here rather than continue to passively overload on information. (My wife questions my use of and definition of the words "productive" and "useful" in regards to sitting in front of a screen for several hours, but, alas, BGG has made such a wretch of me).

Having made that decision, I knew that I was interested in what sort of year 2008 is going to be. I can only imagine that my fellow Geeks are also interested.

This list is an attempt to list every game in one single geeklist that is found with a 2008 release date in the BGG database. That means that this list does not include games like the English reprint of Agricola, for example. If someone else wants to add any of these reprints at the end of my list, you may feel free to do so. Also, I'd love to see added any games that should have come out in 2007 and are listed as such in the database, but really won't be out until 2008.

Please, enjoy.

Warning: This list is full of wargames. I'm not sure why it is that so many wargames have been listed in the database for 2008, but they are the majority of games that could be found at this present date. I'm only a dabbler in wargames and in no way am I trying to speak authoritatively about these games. Please, add any comments that you wish. It was surprising to me that there weren't many Euro games listed. Anyone want to explain to me why not?

According to the publisher, this game is due to be available in February 2008. From key20.com's page on the game:

Quote:
...a game for 3 to 6 players featuring simple gameplay, plenty of player interaction, and a healthy dash of suspicion as each tries to sniff out the alien player in their midst.

This deeper Settlers-style economic game was a big hit as a prototype during BGG.CON. I preordered it without having even played it because it seemed so interesting.

Asmodee has announced a new edition of Formula De for 2008, but has not given much more information...

Will this be more than a reprint? They seem to be hinting that it will be.
Will we see new tracks? Good question.

Still, I'm interesting to see what we're going to get from this...

I've missed out on buying the solitaire classic B-17: Queen of the Skies on several occasions on eBay. So when I spotted this "update" of that game I put in my preorder with Khyber Pass Games. Looks like they'll start invoicing this month with delivery probably in February. Can't wait for it to arrive...

This is one of the games that is in the pushed back from 2007 category. The last note from the designer is that they are in a shipping container in Hong Kong.

I was given an IOU for this one for Christmas so I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival.

Most Carc fans already have most of this expansion. Rumor has it RGG will publish just the small expansion so if you have the other parts you will only need to add what you don't have. Way to go Jaymeeple

Just in time for Valentine's Day!

The second "sneak peek" article mentions mechanics making the Final Battle less predictable. Amusingly, the featured Nyarlathotep card is pure evil -- except in a solitaire game!

My first ever published game, Genji, will also be hitting the stores this year.

The play testers found a few different reasons to enjoy it: some liked the romance theme, others enjoyed the poetry and history, still others enjoyed the screwage factor... so there's pretty much something for everyone. The game includes cards with original Japanese poetry from over 1000 years ago in English and Japanese, rules will be in several languages. I've tried to make the chits as colourblind-friendly as possible.

When it's released, I hope you'll be as suffused with joy as I am!

This is due to be published in 2008.

Some playtesters have commented it is a mix of genres with a bit of AT and a bit of Euro. Certainly there's conflict if you want it, and my understanding is the fleet markers and resources will be wood.

Update: Scheduled as an Essen release, you can pre-order it from now, details on the JKLM website

I didn't see this on the list, but I was told by a distributor that this should be coming out in English very, very soon.

New expandable card game (not collectable) featuring luck-free battles.

Looks like it could be worth a look if:

You want customisable gameplay options but don't want to get into collectable games.
You want a combat simulation but don't like dice/luck.
Just to appreciate the fantastic artwork and original fantasy world and races.

Due to release mid october
