VOTING IS OPEN
20 Most Anticipated Games of 2015

20 Most Desired Expansions (Unplanned) of 2015


Back for a sixth year...

Alphabetical listing of nominations

Status Updates and Trends



20 Most Desired Reprints of 2015

For the second year, to run in conjunction with the 20 Most Anticipated Games the Most Desired Reprints wishlist is a place where you can add all those out-of-print grail games that you wish you could add to this list.


By popular request... well... at least two people... I started the 20 Most Desired (Unplanned) Expansions of 2015.

Where the 2014 favorites are now.
Last year's winner, Xia: Legends of a Drift System, is already nearing the top 500, but last year's runner-up, Cthulhu Wars, is still delayed and looking like it will have a shot at this year's title.

Some of last year's top 20 failed to live up to the hype... I'm looking at you Myth. Others are exceeding expectations, such as Shadows of Brimstone, King of New York, and especially Dead of Winter.

Without further ado nominations are once again open in this very in-formal and un-official contest to determine the 20 Most Anticipated Games of 2015.

Key Dates:
Nominations Open: Sunday, December 7, 2014
Nominations Close: Friday, January 2, 2015
Voting Begins: Saturday, January 3, 2015
Voting Ends: Saturday, January 17, 2015

Nominating your most anticipated.
As always, if a game you're anticipating the release in 2015 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.

Adding category nominations.
If you think a game should be in a category not already listed, 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 2015. 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, initially based on 2014 entries. 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 2015. 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 2015 I may remove it from final voting. The only reason I state this is to separate anticipated 2015 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 2015 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.

"The famous TV show "Room 25" is back for a new season with two characters joining the cast: the adventurer and the psychopath.

In Room 25: Season 2, an expansion for Room 25, all characters have their own special ability. Also, thanks to an adrenaline surge, the participants can perform one additional action in a turn of their choice. Of course we've made the complex different — and more difficult — by adding new rooms...will you be up to the challenge?"

The X-Files board game designed by renowned designer Kevin Wilson:

"In The X-Files, players take on the role of Mulder, Scully, and the X-Files team as they work to uncover global conspiracies and threats while going up against various members of the Syndicate. In game terms, 1-4 agent players team up against one opponent who controls the Smoking Man and his nefarious network.

The X-Files board game will focus on material from the first three seasons of the television series, giving fans a chance to start from the beginning of the phenomenon."

From the kickstarter:

"In the ancient world, kingdoms fought for control of medieval earth. For decades, fierce wars broke out and in combat after combat, deaths tolled thousands, in battles and massacres with no sign of peace. In one of these battles, the sky suddenly roared and the earth broke open abruptly, unleashing countless swarms of zombies of the modern world that rushed in from the unearthly crevice. The sudden invasion of these monstrous creatures brought unprecedented threat to the entire world. With their highly infectious ability and agility, the zombies rapidly broke out and were quickly becoming unstoppable. To avoid annihilation, all kingdoms were forced to set aside their long hatred towards each other and joined the line to fight for the survival of mankind.

Dark Age Z is a strategic board game for 2 to 5 players: you are one of the kings in the Dark Age. All players strive to gain as much Victory Point as possible by killing the zombies that attack the Frontiers of the Kingdom Cities. At the end of the game, the player with the highest Victory Points wins the game."

I tried to ignore this kickstarter... but one look at the project and a couple playthrough reviews later I had to join in. Build your own crazy steam driven machine out of drafted cards and manipulate dice to power it over the mountains in a rally style race! Historical is clearly a stretch... but it was all the real inventors included as player characters and the blurbs about their actual accomplishments that put me over the edge and made me pledge. Certainly the game I'm most looking forward to in the new year!

Classic kickstarter delays pushed this anticipated 2014 title into early 2015... so it qualifies for this list! While there have been quite a few ant themed games released in the past couple of years something about this one seems more fully... anty? Or more like an ant simulation than a Euro with an ant theme anyway.

It might even feel a bit like a light 4x game as you explore your field to gather food, battle predators and ants from other colonies, expand your colony through the ant life cycle and gain new abilities by evolving your ants. I'm really looking forward to being an ant!

Looks like a fun filler where you are trying to get kids to eat your ghost's favorite candy for points... but lose points if you make them eat so much they get sick. Lots of special powers on the kids and wonderful, lighthearted artwork for everything. As someone who doesn't generally appreciate the horror genre I'm extra excited for this so I can have a proper Halloween game... but I could see it being a year round hit with my family... and perhaps down at my FLGS on game nights as well.

Mac Gerdts has had a new release at each of the past couple of Essens and I have enjoyed all his games I have played... so I'm excited to hear more about this year's prototype... which is likely to be next year's shiny new Essen game! Invest in steamship companies and keep up on the latest in steam locomotion technology while running iron, rail and coal companies for more profit. So... a bit of Imperial as stockholding in the steamship companies can change their ownership... but with your own portfolio of support companies that are yours and yours alone. And... Rondel! Could be a great economic game.

Note entirely sure this is all that historical... but effects of historic technological changes to steam vessels seems to be an important mechanic of the game.
