VOTING IS OPEN
20 Most Anticipated Games of 2015
20 Most Desired Reprints 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.

Quote:
After decades of abusing the gift of time travel, humanity has accidentally created a massive space-time disturbance called the Quake that threatens planets in both space and time. Players take on the roles of scientists tasked with saving as many worlds as possible from the Quake, by manipulating energy to create new time strands. When enough of the proper time strands have been made, the breach is repaired. By creating multiple connections to a given anchor point in space, players further deepen the connection between worlds.

However, every change made to the space/time continuum creates a ripple effect – the Quake jumps to another World, fracturing it and removing it from reality. The things that you must do to save Worlds from the Quake are the very things that fuel the Quake...

Quote:
Players draft cards from an open tableau of worlds and timelines to save, then harvest resources from a 5x5 grid of tokens by swapping tokens of similar symbols, in order to create an orthogonal line of 4-5 tokens of similar color. Red, yellow, and green tokens are used to save timelines; white and black resources, to restore fractured worlds and shield saved worlds. At the end of twelve rounds, the Quake loses its energy and dissipates -- planets that remain fractured score fewer points for all players. The player/scientist with the most VPs is recognized as the team responsible for saving the universe...and wins the game.

This is a rethemed version of Spartacus: A Game of Blood & Treachery being developed by designer Andrew Parks. In the game Magneto, Wolverine, Storm, and Cyclops lead their own asymmetric mutant schools, striving to recruit students, train them, and send them on missions.

By the way, I hope that Sci-Fi works as a category for super heroes?

Eight brand new stand-alone 16-card Lost Legacy decks by Seiji Kanai and the following list of hot co-designers: Hisashi Hayashi, Hiroki Kasawa, Macoto Nakamura, Jun'ichi Sato, Yoshito Terashima, and Muneyuki Yokouchi. The entire sets theme is legends, folklore, and fairy tales.

Here's a sneak peek at the 8 decks.

Should this be in the "expansion" category, given that it expands the Lost Legacy line, even though it's completely stand-alone, and not even meant to be combined with the previous 6 Lost Legacy decks?

Tak claims that there are no plans to release an English version of this set, but if we can raise enough demand, perhaps we could get them to change their minds.

Blood Rage is an epic Viking board game of pillaging, fighting, and questing for 2-4 players, with each player representing a mighty clan of Vikings, who have been released from the halls of Valhalla and endowed with the gifts of the gods themselves to pillage the remains of Midgard as it burns during Ragnarok.

This is one of the many Scott Almes games that are being released next year. Loop involves time travel with a clever mechanism for playing cards over 3 rounds. It's a thinky time travel game in a small package. Very excited for this one!

A card game that borrrows heavily from MtG, WoW and MMORPGs, yet seems to transcend its influences by bypassing their individual "flaws" through clever design desicions.

Oh, and the art is astonishing.

A dream game, this is my most anticipated release of 2015, and probably of all time.

[altname]Exodus: Edge of Extinction[/altname]

Exodus: Proxima Centauri is a 4X game that is often compared to Twilight Imperium 3. While they share many aspects, Exodus takes about half as long to play, much due TI3's grander scale. Exodus is therefore sometimes referred to as "TI3 Light".

This expansion is slated to add asymmetric play and many unique new faction abilities to the game.

My brothers's first boardgame! It's a sports-arena themed game that uses Crokinole-like pucks. You flick them around to score points, collect power-ups, and smash your opponent. I ran playtests with him in the First Look Hall at GenCon and had a lot of fun, and he's been improving it ever since based on what we saw there.

Really excited for this entry from Tasty Minstrel Games. Looks like it should fit in a lunch hour while also being clever.

Board game from Richard Launius, designer of Defenders of the Realm. This time players are in the desert after the post apocalypse. Has a strong western flavor, with mutants of coarse. Characters can mutate during the game. Three clans are heading toward The Last Stand. Can you fight them off? This is more evolved system than Defenders of the Realm. There will be adventure questing as well.

Late 2015 Release

Ambitious children's game will include a huge book of illustrated encounters read aloud by either parents or players. This game has a ton of illustrations that have been in the works for the last 18 months.

Designed and written by Jason Maxwell, with story contributions from Scott Almes.

Does this fit an economic tab? Your dice pool is your currency and there are a lot economical decisions? I'll put it in and see what people think.

Company has faced a series of rough events, but is still pushing through, and I have faith that it will work by the end of the year. A beautiful, deep game sadly overlooked in the kickstarter realm by many, but I am certain its praise will only grow once released. Cooperative Survival game in deep space with nearly insurmountable odds filled with hostile aliens and environments. Miniature game. (:
