Hey everybody. Are you ready for another year of games of interest? Okay, here's the previous years I've covered:

2012 / 2013 / 2014

And like those lists, this geeklist will be constantly updated throughout the year, listing any games that I discover that I find interesting. Bear in mind, I'll only include games that work with 2 players. Also, this list will be generally kind of euro-leaning, and most games will likely be lower on the conflict scale, because that's what my wife and I like to play.

Also also, it's not going to be alphabetically sorted, because that gets really obnoxious I find, when people are subscribing.

Finally, for games (and expansions) to make it on the list, they need to be ranked as at least a 3 on my personal wishlist (3="Like to have"). Everything else I stumble across that piques some level of interest I'll rank as a 4 ("Thinking about it") and subscribe to it, but I won't add it to this list until enough info comes out that convinces me to upgrade it to a 3 (or a 2 "Love to have" or a 1 "Must have").

My full wishlist of games is HERE for anyone who'd like to peruse the titles that are in the "thinking about it" category...

Okay, with that out of the way, let's start listing!!!

A new territory grabbing game from the designers of Fleet, who haven't let me down with any of their designs so far! Can't wait to give their latest a go, as it seems to have a very clever central system that defines how players can grab parcels of land which is very interactive in a positive way (I get something, and you get something too)

Okay this production chain development game is on the list solely based on the designer, Alexandre Pfister, who was the co-designer on the EXCELLENT Isle of Skye: From Chieftain to King (and also on Broom Service, which won the Kennerspiel). Seems like he's on a roll, so I want to check this out.

Oh, and art from the ever excellent Klemens Franz doesn't hurt either!

OMG, now this is an expansion! Original designer teams up with other respected designers (the Brands, of Village fame) to add more content, but also a full co-op mode(!!) and special 2p only objective mode(!!) to what was already one of my favourite games of last year??? WOW!

This is going to be coming on KS before the year is out, and I'll be doing a runthrough for it at that point, but spoiler alert: OMG it's awesome!!!

So the original stronghold is one of those rare "heavy conflict" games that Jen and I enjoy, but man, I love the notion of this second editoin streamlining the gameplay because the original is a bit too fiddly to bring out with any sort of regularity. And boy, the new wooden components for the defenders look awesome. OTOH, the board looks a lot more brown and a lot less colourful and inviting.

Should be interesting...

This was an insta-back for me on Kickstarter, as we love the base game, can't wait for the 2nd edition, and want more more more!

This was annouced recently along with Haba's other 'not necessarily for kids' line that they're releasing at Essen this year. I instantly decided that the Kramer & Kielsing Adventure Land was a must get because, well, K&K4life! But I wasn't sure about Karuba.

Well, now I'm intensely jealous of Eric Martin, because he's got contacts at Haba who will answer his emails apparently (radio silence for me) and got him a review copy of Karuba, and he just put up a video, and the game looks phenomenal! I suspect it's one that Jen and I will enjoy a lot, actually.

Now if only I could get Haba to notice me!

The last expansion for TK was awesome, so I have no doubt this will be as well!

NSKN (a publisher with an increasingly good track record) publishing a game from Wolf and van Ginste (a design duo with some very fresh games to their credit: Yedo & Kill Shakespeare) set in a Harry Potter-ish Howarts-esque dice drafting game situation all equals interested!

I doubt it'll come out till 2016, but who wants to bet it will hit kickstarter before the year is up?

Hello, what's this? Victorian era London, investigating crimes, atmospheric soundtrack system that keeps gameplay moving foward? This all sounds awesome!
