There can be only one twenty!



Final results are posted:
[POLLS] 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2012 --- RESULTS POSTED --- 1600+ Votes


Another year has come and gone... and quite a few of last year's most anticipated games (at least for me) made it into production and onto my shelves (1830, Mansions of Madness, Letters from Whitechapel, et. al).

Unfortunately, I think more made it onto the shelves than on the table.

For the last two years I have found a number of great games through this most informal and unofficial process... so, here it is again, back for a third year. As in past years, this will be a two-stage process... a nominations phase and a final voting phase.

BoardGameNews experienced a little turmoil about the time of last year's poll, but ironically their fantastic Gone Cardboard page is back here on BGG just in time for this year's 20 most poll.

In that spirit I would like to once again open nominations for this very in-formal and un-official contest to determine the 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2012.

Nomination Status Updates:
One day left to nominate a game for the 20 Most Anticipated of 2012 --- and status update

Key Dates:
Nominations Open: Sunday, December 11, 2011
Nominations Close: Monday, January 2, 2011
Voting Begins: Tuesday, January 3, 2012
Voting Ends: Saturday, January 14, 2012

Subcategories:
Subcategories will be changed based on the nominations, but tentatively these are the subcategories I expect us to have (feel free to nominate a game for multiple categories):
* Train
* Economic
* Historical
* Political
* Horror
* Science Fiction
* Fantasy
* Wargames
* Expansions
* Original
* Reprint
* Print & Play
* Abstract

Eligibility
Any newly available game or expansion is eligible if it is reasonably expected to ship in 2012. I know, "reasonably" is a fuzzy word... cest la vie.

Nominations
To nominate a game add it to this geeklist. Please add a short note stating why it is anticipated that the game will ship in 2012, and specify one or more subcategories you think it fits. Feel free to suggest new subcategories.

Nomination name
Nominations may not have a BGG entry yet, or you may want to change the nomination name to indicate a specific edition.

To do so, put the nomination name inside of altname tags such as:
[altname]Favorite game - Unnamed expansion[/altname]

To second a nomination thumb its entry.

The top 50 nominations will be entered into the final vote for the top 20.


Voting
At the conclusion of nominations I will create a poll with the top 50 nominations.

Reprints vs. new editions
Reprints of already released games are not eligible, but new editions are. As with many things in the gaming industry this isn't a crisp line as to how many changes are necessary to distinguish a reprint from a new edition, but several factors to consider are artwork and components.

When nominating a new edition, mention why you think this one is different from the previous edition (not necessarily in detail, something as short as "new components" is sufficient).

Long out-of-print reprints
I would prefer to include games that have been generally unavailable for several years and are receiving a reprint. Again, this is a bit of a fuzzy area, but as an example, if Warhammer Quest or Hero Quest were to be reprinted without changes they would be eligible.

Multiple releases
It is not uncommon for a game printing to have multiple release editions for the EU and US markets (such as Mayfair/Lookout Games and JKLM/Z-Man). Many games are released and available at Essen and then (sometimes much later) released in the US with great anticipation.

For many, I think the "buzz" surrounding an Essen release combined with the general unavailability heightens the anticipation.

I would prefer to include these releases and let the voting determine how anticipant people are.

Limited initial release
I would also prefer to include games that had a limited initial release and are preparing for a full re-release. Again, this will be a grey area, but one example I would point to is the approach that Treefrog, Winsome, GMT and other publishers take with typically small pre-order releases that sell out quickly and receive a reprint if they perceive that the game was well received.

What is a small or limited release? Again, another gray area that we'll have to deal with as it comes up, as I'm sure a small release for Hasbro is quite different for a small release from most publishers here on BoardGameGeek.

This would also include games that might have had reviewer copies released, but are not yet generally available for purchase.

Other
If the particular game is part of a series (such as the Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game) I may combine multiple nominations into one entry for final voting if it appears as if the series is anticipated rather than a specific release in the series (this was done for the Dominion expansions in 2010).

Also, if there isn't any justification for why a particular game is anticipated to ship in 2012 I may removed it from final voting. This only reason I state this is to separate anticipated 2012 releases from wishlist items. Yes, it would be nice if Hasbro/Avalon Hill reprinted Star Wars: The Queen's Gambit but at this point I don't believe there is any reason to anticipate their release in 2012.

However, in this respect I would prefer to be inclusive rather than exclusive.

Anything else??? We'll wing it...

Stronghold Games Edition

Categories: Sci-Fi, Economic, Reprint

Last year, one of the games that I used as an example of a game that was a wishlist and unrealistic reprint was Merchant of Venus.

Now, 2011 brings not one, but two announcements and a bit of legal uncertainty regarding MoV and the reprints.

I have the original Avalon Hill, and if it comes down to two publications of MoV in 2012 I'll probably end up with both.

Fantasy Flight Games Edition

Categories: Sci-Fi, Economic, Reprint

I find it intriguing that Fantasy Flight is intending to not only reprint this, but rework it as well.

I'm sure that means they intend to follow on with a number of expansions as well.

Back for a third year, a long awaited expansion to one of my favorite games.

Personally, I'm hoping this will get eliminated from voting by shipping before 2012.

I think that perhaps the most exciting aspect of this expansion is the fifth player, as that seems to be a limiting factor in getting this to the table.

A six player fully-cooperative game sounds cool. More so that it's coming from Z-Man.

Looks to be here March 2012.

I pledged this one on Kickstarter. It will be quite interesting to see how it turns out.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/michaelmindes/kings-of-a...

This was also on Wired's GeekDad list of best Kickstarter projects.

At the time of nomination it is still open for backing, and is very close to the second overfunding goal (molded plastic airships), and reasonably close to the third overfunding goal (molded plastic thematic crates).

Due to an illness, designer/publisher Bowen Simmons was forced to delay this again. We are hoping for a quick recovery. I still want this game and it still is my highest want, so, with anticipation 2012 is the year, I nominate this jewel to be.

Dare I? I have to. I've got faith that this war game will get through its development pains and ship next year. I play tested it at BGG.con last year (2010) and would buy that game, so I'm clearly super excited about it. I'm not sure what Academy Games has planned next, but I hope it's this.

It's a war game, nothing else.

I really thought that this would make it out in 2011. Then ZMan got bought out and this got delayed. Currently indefinitely. I just have to hope that it finally makes an appearance in 2012 as I've been waiting for this for about 3 years now!

EDIT: Apparently this is the 3rd time in a row that I've nominated this game in these lists. I did it in the 2010 and 2011 lists as well.

This is one definately on the top of my most anticipated list. It has some really interesting new concepts that I've never seen in a boardgame. Plus i like the simultaneous decision making process.

New edition (differing from old edition in new components and different publisher).

It was mentioned as a potential release in 2011, but this was pushed back to 2012, so hopefully it successfully gets out the door in 2012.

Suggested subcategories: co-operative, reprint.

I've been waiting for this one, I know someone for whom it would be the perfect gift.

I've loved every game Academy Games has put out, so I can't wait to see what they do with Civil War Combat.
