The end of the year is nigh,2010 has not been a bad one for new wargames. There's a lot of good stuff set for release next year and I'm probably not the only wargamer here that has a "must have" or two on his gaming radar for 2011. I'll post mine, you post what wargames and/or expansions you're looking forward to the most in the upcoming year. This list may be a little early but what the Hell, if it results in a couple more pre-orders it's all good.

BTW if it's a foggy number of pre-orders with no set date for your anticipated games make your own educated guess on whether or not it will be published and post away. If your anticipated releases are straddling the new year use your own discretion on adding to the list.

Since I am not a "wargamer" (whatever this is), the only one I am looking forward (2011 or later) is this.


The playtest rules and session reports are very promising.

Another 2010 title that didn't quite make it...

My most anticipated pre-order, Prague is more than a new game - it comes with a new version of the BAR rules!

The last of my "I want it now" games. I'm a big fan of A Most Dangerous Time: Japan in Chaos, 1570-1584 and the International Game Series and I hope that the two designers (Tetsuya Nakamura and Adam Starkweather) will continue to bring us easy to play, interesting and fun games! (Storm Over Stalingrad and A Victory Lost is on my wishlist and I ordered A Victory Denied some days ago )

I'm looking forward to the sequel to this AH title. The update will include the old SJW, but the scenarios will be modified so that you can play something that focuses more directly on the actual Second Battle of Manassas. Also, there will be scenarios and campaigns for the First Battle of Manassas, which is quite the bonus.

Too bad they are going to continue on with the despicable new-style counters first introduced in Battle Above the Clouds.

Never play block wargames with a dentist, they have those little mirrors to peek behind the block.

It was my impression this would be published in 2011. It was love at first sight when I saw it. It will cover Gettysburg on the first day. I believe I read that there would be 60 scenarios with one being the full day's battle. If anyone has more info please add. If I get to buy only one game next year this would be the one.

What's not to like about this one?

- Nato forces

- Black Hand(Cultist) forces devil
- Cool weapons of war
- Plays solo
- Plays also with 3(yes 3!)


This needs to come out in 2011!!

This is probably going to be my first real solo wargame.
I was thinking about buying Where there is discord because of the rave reviews but I hesitated because the theme didn't attract me that much.
And then I found out the designer was in the process of designing this!

Rumours are out that a new version of Harpoon will surface during 2011, including a complete rules rewrite, that will unify the rules for all the Admiral's Trilogy games (Fear God and Dread Nought, Command at Seaand Harpoon 4into one consistent set of rules!

I hope for more comprehensive rules for electronic warfare, datalinking and all that.

Some of the new rules have already seen the light of day in the SITREP

Breakout Normandy is one of my favourite games, and Storm over Stalingrad is a fun game that's playable in 3 hours or less. If this game is anything less than very good, I will be heartily surprised and disappointed.

Hope that there is a change with the weak box art though. Not sure I've ever seen the English Channel in that shade of blue before.
