Nominations, and voting are now closed.

The final results can be found here.

There can be only one twenty!


Back for a fifth year...

Status updates:
Alphabetical listing of nominations

15 Minute Status Updates and Trends



Yet another year has once again come and gone... actually five now since I started the Most Anticipated of 20xx.


20 Most Desired Reprints of 2014

To run in conjunction with the 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2014 I started a reprint wishlist competition where you can add all those out-of-print grail games that you wish you could add to this list.


Where the 2013 favorites are now.
Last year's winner, Lords of Waterdeep: Scoundrels of Skullport is just now gaining traction in the BGG rankings, and the runner-up Kingdom Death: Monster has been delayed and is once more in the voting, along with Race for the Galaxy: Alien Artifacts if it doesn't make it out by the end of the year. I'm sure there are many that would have preferred they were ineligible for this year's competition, because that would mean they would have them in their hands.

A number of the "20 most" from last year are climbing steadily up the BGG rankings, namely Bora Bora which is up to 108 as of this writing. Where There Is Discord: War in the South Atlantic is at #64 in the war game rankings, along with The Guns of Gettysburg at #120.

There are other notable finalists that were in the running for the top 20 and are rating highly after release. These include Kemet, 1775: Rebellion, Rialto, Viticulture, and Caverna: The Cave Farmers.

Kickstarter's influence on anticipated games.
Kickstarter was in its infancy when I started the Most Anticipated series, and last year was perhaps the first that had a significant impact on the nominations. This year, Kickstarter's influence is once again undeniable, but expected. After all, who would back a project and not excitedly anticipate its release?

Most of the bigger publishers will still hold their cards close until Essen next year, but there are still a number of great non-Kickstarter titles to look forward to.

Without further ado nominations are once again open nominations in this very in-formal and un-official contest to determine the 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2014.

Key Dates:
Nominations Open: Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Nominations Close: Thursday, January 2, 2014
Voting Begins: Friday, January 3, 2014
Voting Ends: Saturday, January 18, 2014

Nominating your most anticipated.
As always, if a game you're anticipating the release in 2014 is not on the list feel free to add it. Game designers and publishers are encouraged to nominate their own games by adding them to the list. Don't be humble and wait for someone else to do it. See the notes below for adding games. As in past years, this will be a two-stage process... a nominations phase and a final voting phase.

New this year. Adding category nominations.
I've updated the scripts that generate the categories. If you think a particular game should be in a category, you can add it in a comment using the category notation below, such as [category]wargame[/category]. If your comment has 5 or more thumbs the category will be added to the nomination.

Campaigning for your favorites
Go for it. If you're a publisher, designer, or designer's mom don't hesitate to campaign for your favorites. Bribing voters is fine too. Pretty much anything goes as long as kittens, puppies and small children aren't injured. We have to draw the line somewhere.

Nominations
To nominate a game add it to this geeklist with one or more categories using the category tags below. Please add a short note stating why it is anticipated that the game will ship in 2014. Feel free to suggest new categories.

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.


Nomination Categories:
Categories will be changed based on the nominations, but tentatively these are the categories I expect us to have. Feel free to nominate a game for multiple categories. Some of the categories may be combined or eliminated if there aren't enough nominations in the category.

Eligibility
Any newly available game or expansion is eligible if it is reasonably expected to ship in 2014. I know, "reasonably" is a fuzzy word... cest la vie.

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 2014 I may remove it from final voting. The only reason I state this is to separate anticipated 2014 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 a 2014 release.

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

Anything else??? We'll wing it... After all, this is just for fun.

A co-operative time-travelling, puzzle-solving, story-telling experience. Could be great? I'm certainly intrigued.

This is based on the US 36th Infantry Division (Texas Division). This would be a dependent module, but would include updated counters for Screaming Eagles. It also would include non-airborne American Infantry and some other things. Hopefully, I will also be able to put out some extra scenarios for the 11th Panzer in the west. There is a lot of cool stuff in this module/this module enables.

Its not easy to be a Master of Evil. The working hours suck... Finding efficient minions is a pain... and keeping your well-earned treasure safe from the hands of the so called "Heroes" ends up being a full-time job. But... this is YOUR JOB and fame in the Inner Circle of Evil is everything to you so why not show the other Masters how a demonic job is really done! Masters of Evil is a game for 1 to 6 players where each player takes the role of an Evil Master that is repelling the attack of a variety of heroes trying to gain as much reputation as possible by imprisoning the heroes when defeated.

Quote:
Three Kingdoms Redux is played over a 12-year period or less. Each player takes on the role of one of the feudal lords of the states of Wei 魏, Wu 吳, or Shu 蜀. During each year, players attempt to outbid one another and carry out the available actions.

Develop your state's farm or marketplace, recruit and train army units, produce weapons, trade resources, construct state enhancements, control the Han emperor, demand tributes from your vassals, win support from your people, improve your relationship with your border’s tribe or wage battle against other states to expand your borders!

Players start the game from asymmetrical starting positions. Each year, an alliance is formed between two of the three players. Players then use their recruited generals to bid for action spaces and only the player(s) winning the bid for an action space may take the action. Victory points are earned by domestic development, achieving civil harmony by earning popular support and maintaining good relations with border tribes, gaining ranks via controlling the Han emperor, constructing state enhancements, and conquering new territories along the state's borders.

A turn based, card driven, strategic game set in the era of absolutism and enlightenment and stretching through the French revolution.

With two maps creating a total playing area of 60" by 44", the game sprawls from Portugal to Britain to the plains and forests of Peter the Great's snow blasted Russia.

Players will be challenged to build a powerful nation-state, levy taxes, develop their military advancements, stay ahead of their enemies, and manage over 300 cards and events to survive the era.

As you develop your nations armies and military, the rules you use for campaigning will actually change to simulate the stunning advancements in theory, logistics, and capabilities of the era.

With several scenarios designed to be played in a long evening, each turn represents one year and players moves are controlled by the back and forth experience delivered by action based gaming.

Scenarios/Periods covered will include The Great Northern War, The War of Spanish Succession, The War of Austrian Succession, The Seven Years War, The Coalition Wars (1792-1800), and in an expansion, The Napoleonic Wars.

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 recruits. Players manage resources to support their uprising, and use the influence of their recruits to gain control of the various Guilds of the Kingdoms, which in turn gives them special abilities to further their cause.

NEW Conquistador will ship in the first quarter of 2014.

A complete remake of the classic SPI and Avalon Hill versions from the 1970's. While the original game featured largely the classic hex and counter movement that was prevalent in the 70's. This new version will feature features area-movement, action points for movement and a new card deck (that adds random events without driving the game). Players will use cards for both events and action points and at the same time being able to play cards during their opponent's turns to counter their efforts.

Players can play one of four European powers competing for control of the resources of the new world. The game's time line goes from 1495 to 1615 with players trying to establish colonies in the Americas and bring home as much gold and resources as they can back to Europe. Along the way they will have to deal with natural disasters, other European powers and of course the indigenous people of the New World including the Mayans, Incas and Aztecs.


Thanks for your support - Greg

My favourite game of the past year gets an expansion!!

And as someone who was involved with some early playtesting (until serious health problems sidelined me from life in general, including most gaming-related activities), I can assure you that there is a LOT to look forward to with this one... ninja

A new game from the Greater Than Games, makers of Sentinels of the Multiverse. I love Sentinels, so color me intrigued. They were originally shooting for October, but it should be out early in 2014.

Multi-Man Publishing has agreed to publish this hitherto desktop-published game on WW2 Pacific aircraft carrier battles in the Coral & Solomon Seas (hence the title), and after some 15 years of development of the designer, Markus Stumpner, 2014 is looking promising as the year of release for this game. The discussion group on Consimworld.com for this game shows the progress and discussion threads. Only 100 copies of the dtp edition were printed, and I feel super fortunate to have a copy of this brilliant game. Let's hope Solomon Sea joins the other fine games here in 2014!

I dont know if this is going to get disqualified, but the AEG print of Lost Legacy is out in 2014 (rumoured). The quantity of sets brought to Essen was pifflingly small, so I am certainly looking forward to 2014 for a more general release.
