Having just randomly stumbled over the gameplay video, this game immediately made the list. A real-time cooperative game sounds like great fun. (I had hoped Wok Star would have filled the niche last year, but sadly I haven't seen that game in the wild, yet.)
Another possible game for my girlfriend and me. She spent a year in Firenze recently so it's actually the theme that caught my eye. Will have to look at the gameplay more closely before I can make a decision.
51st State was a surprise hit with my gaming group 2 years ago. The New Era was received a little less warmly. I'm not sure if I will pick this up, but it'll definitely be high on my list of games I must try while at Spiel.
