Upcoming games which may interesst me, in no particular order... This list also doubles as "My Essen 2011 List"!

This list - like most others - also "stands on the shoulder of giant (list)s", without those I never would have been able to get an overview over all the new releases and those not to well known gems without enough publicity. Many thanks to
Ravenhoe's N/A
Dr Marbuse's Essen 2011 Canonical List
leaxe's Essen 2011 - The list of lists
peakhope's PeakHope's comprehensive list of purely cooperative games
kvenosdel's Boardgame Kickstarter Projects
and to many others!

54. Board Game: Colonial: Europe's Empires Overseas [Average Rating:7.30 Overall Rank:1082]
Andreas Hunziker
Switzerland
Münchenbuchsee
flag msg tools
Why: Theme-, playing-time-, and # of player-wise it seems to be a natural fit for our group, and for once living in Switzerland could work out as a benefit... ...but there is this hint of "Euro", and my gaming-preferences live more in the ameritrash corner of the boxing-ring...

Who: Stratagem Ltd
When: 2011, End of October
# of Players: 3 − 6
Playing Time: 120 minutes
Mechanic: Area Control / Area Influence, Campaign / Battle Card Driven, Simultaneous Action Selection

A 3-6 players board game about colonial times, from the Renaissance to the Industrial Revolution.

In ‘Colonial’ players are the ruler of mighty European states, sending their ministers to explore the earth, establish missions, ascertain scientific supremacy, and trade in exotic goods. These commodities will have to be exploited on an industrial scale and resold in Europe or in the colonies.

Set against an epic historical backdrop and using a branded Character Card-driven system, this fast-paced board game requires careful management, knowledge and diplomacy to lead to victory in the race for prestige.


RETAIL PRICE 80 Swiss Francs/USD*
Price in € to be adjusted.

General distribution by Stratagem Sàrl, 54 rue des Bains, 1205 Geneva, Switzerland.
Swiss publisher : very strong currency these days ; made in Germany ; very small print run.

Update: Bought by shapeshift, so I'll get the chance to play it!

Why: I own 2 boxes of the series (Epic Dungeoneer: Call of the Lich Lord - "Schattenzepter des Dunklen Gottes" and Dungeoneer: Vault of the Fiends - "Brutstätte der Ungeheuer", both German editions), and last year the Dungeoneer boxes were given away at Essen for practically nothing. But I couldn't remember which of those I already had and I didn't want to get doubles, so I skipped the opportunity. But if there are still some left on the piles this year the I'll gobble them up

Why: I played a lot Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 with my friends and had some incredible gaming-sessions. So it is not Dominion itself what I am interested in, but in "Zombinion", a L4D rethemed Dominion variant. I even made some Artscow Decks (knowing the insane amount of money this would cost) and ordered a sample, just to see how the would look, juuuust to seeeeee

Why: Spacethemed, multiplayer 2-6 player...

Zero Luck Combat, hidden fleet deployment and secret agendas are the primary elements of "Exile Sun", but each sub-element such as Turn Order, Economy and Fleet Composition are controlled by a Euro-style mechanic. Hand management and Deck building control what ships you have at your disposal to use in fleets at any certain time. A Card draft controls turn order, some special abilities and income. The Economy is controlled by a symoltaneous worker placement mechanic. The victory point system is dynamic including secret agenda cards as well as other ways to win. Players assume the role of one of 6 unique Human colonies all with special player powers and advantages.
