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...

Every year should have a good original racing game. After discovering Rallyman last year, I'm looking forward to this one: A NASCAR racing game, in which each player is piloting a team of 3-6 cars. With each play of a movement card, multiple cars are being moved. Sounds like a lot is going to happen on track...

Even I don't think this can possibly slip another year. It hit its preorder target in June 2009 and has been languishing ever since, despite repeated claims that it's "in the next batch to print" or similar reassurances.

I finished the first version of the VASSAL module for it 10 months ago and it's been gathering dust since. Even allowing for delays and MMP's production rate, I think this could finally hit shelves in late spring.

Categories: Medieval, Wargame.

Lyssan is the brainchild of Sam Brown and the debut game of his young, California-based publishing company Thornhenge.

Set in an early-medieval period, Lyssan is a country shaken by generations of civil war, as powerful factions vie for control of the throne. Two to four players plot, scheme, and betray in attempt to oust their rival contenders with the clever playing of cards and strategic placement of their castles and agents; knights, nobles, priests, and spies. Lyssan features simple yet deep gameplay, providing a very rich, thematic experience despite the short play time.

Lyssan was successfully Kickstarted on August 17, 2011.

I'm sure CGL will get this game released in 2012.

I guess this could be historical, scifi, or wargame but it doesn't seem like a great match for any particular category besides wargame. It's a steam-punk tactical combat game of flying WWI-era battleships with a bunch of super high-quality miniatures! What's not to like?

This is still showing as early 2012 and I would expect FFG to get this out next year. After the initial announcement, we have had no further details about the changes in 2nd edition, but if they manage to streamline the game whilst still keeping all of the flavour and theme then they should be onto a winner.

As for sub-category I would guess that maybe Fantasy is the correct one to use.

For love of all that is holy, this game should be on the list!

I have been waiting for years! I am not the only one!

The game was originally licensed several years ago by Face2Face Games, but sadly Larry Whalen, the owner, had a lot of health issues that resulted in production delays. Eventually (I believe it was earlier this year) he ended up selling the company to Gryphon, who put Zong Shi up as a kickstarter, which passed its goal with flying colors because this game has been making the rounds in prototype form for years and has developed a rabid devoted following because it is a GREAT game.

Interesting side note - it was actually one of the very earliest worker placement games to be designed & developed - just not to hit the production line

PS. Despite my previous business relationship with the designer, I have no financial interest in the game, I just want my copy already. NOW!

Princes of the Dragon Throne will be Kickstarted by Clever Mojo Games sometime in the first half of 2012 with expected delivery sometime before the end of 2012.

Princes of the Dragon Throne is an area control and resource management board game that uses deck building as a driver for the other game elements. Players select cards from a continually changing pool of opportunities to build a unique deck of rebels. Players manage resources to support their uprising, and use the influence of their rebels to gain control of the various realms of the kingdoms, which in turn gives them special abilities to further their cause.

The final 2 faction decks for Summoner Wars will be released in 2012. This one and Summoner Wars: Mercenaries Faction Deck will make 16 total.

The Filth have unique mutation rules and Mercenaries will be able to leverage all the previously released Mercenaries from reinforcements, so there is still fresh angles being introduced to the game despite its simple rule set. and 2nd Summoners will start being released eventually...

Atompunk by Sam Mercer is intended to kickstart in February. It's based on an alternate universe where atomic bombs dropped after World War 2. Production ideas are in threads in the Board Game Design forum, and I'm sure Sam will add more info.

Political theme and negotiation mechanic makes this my only autobuy for 2012 at the moment.

I hope this is the year.

I looked through the list twice (I swear) and didn't see it posted yet.

A half expansion in the spring and a full expansion (maybe the last) in the fall.

The latest in the Quarriors series. This is a bigger set than the recent small expansion and should also include a storage box and "advanced rules".
