This poll is now closed.   585 answers
Poll created by rvinyard
Closes: Mon Feb 1, 2010 6:00 am


We'll do this in two stages: Nominations and Voting

Eligibility
Any game or expansion is eligible if it is anticipated to ship in 2010. Whether it will actually ship in 2010 is another matter.

Nominations
Open for one week until Wednesday, January 20th at approximately 3:00PM MST

To nominate a game add it to this geeklist. Please add a short note stating why it is anticipated that the game will ship in 2010.

To vote for a nomination thumb its entry.

The top 50 nominations will be entered into the final vote for the top 20.


Periodic nominations updates
Last updated Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 6:15PM MST
Periodically I'll post how the nominations are going in the voting thread here: [POLLS] Most anticipated games of 2010 - VOTING IS NOW OPEN

Voting
Open at the conclusion of nominations through Sunday, January 31st

At the conclusion of nominations I will add a poll to the beginning of this forum thread: [POLLS] Most anticipated games of 2010 - VOTING IS NOW OPEN

The poll will contain the top 50 nominations.

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.

Also, if there isn't any justification for why a particular game is anticipated to ship in 2010 I may removed it from final voting. This only reason I state this is to separate anticipated 2010 releases from wishlist items. Yes, it would be nice if Hasbro/Avalon Hill reprinted Star Wars: The Queen's Gambit or Merchant of Venus but at this point I don't believe there is any reason to anticipate their release in 2010.

Rumors abound that Mayfair will be reprinting this one in 2010:
http://boardgamegeek.com/article/4286236#4286236

Is it going to be a straight reprint?

Is Francis Tresham involved?

Is Bruce Shelley involved?

Will any expansions be included?

Anticipant geeks want to know!!!

Despite a myriad of problems that pushed its release date from 2009 to 2010, Valley Games says that "All systems are go".

I'm anticipating my preorder copy any day now.

Originally slated for a 2009 release, the latest report from the publisher is that it's stuck in Customs.

The publisher says April-May 2010:

Correction:

Looking at Jolly Roger's page for FF here:
http://www.jollyrogergames.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...

It says: "This product will be in stock on Tuesday 01 June, 2010."

The remake has been in the works for several years and the BGG database has it listed as a 2010 release. There was a great deal of anticipation last Fall... will it arrive in 2010?

Martin Wallace's "Gettysburg"

The Treefrog website says March/April 2010...

Here's the comments on the game:
Quote:
Having dealt with Waterloo I thought it only reasonable to have a crack at Gettysburg. Cannot give more details as I've not designed it yet. However, it will not be a straight adaption of mechanics from Waterloo. Just to confirm, this is a two player wargame!

Apparently, it's very close...

About to see public light at Mark Derrick's Chattanooga Rail Con, and for me, the most anticipated 18xx game release of this year is Craig Bartell's 1817:

1817 is a railroad operations and share trading board game in the 18xx
series with a distinct financial flair. It is named after the year the
New York Stock Exchange opened at 40 Wall Street in New York.

1817 differentiates itself from other 18xx games with its sophisticated
financial mechanics that simulate the laissez faire capitalism of early
America. While all the familiar mechanics of an 18xx game are present,
such as placing tiles, purchasing tokens, and running trains, the game
is won or lost based on the financial decisions you make.

1817 includes financial mechanics seen in other 18xx games such as
mergers, friendly takeovers, and conversions to different share
structures. Beyond these basics, 1817 introduces several additional
financial mechanics such as short selling, market driven interest rates,
hostile takeovers, and corporate liquidations. The most unique is
selling stock short. Short selling is the practice of selling stock you
don’t own with the intention of buying the stock back at a later date.
You hope to profit from a decline in the price of the stock between the
sale and the repurchase. Conversely, you will incur a loss if the price
of the stock increases before the repurchase. You are also liable for
dividends paid while holding the short position.

1817 has undergone extensive play testing by the Kansas City 18xx game
group and is ready for public play. The game generally lasts about 6
hours. Files will be made available sometime after the Chattanooga Rail
Gaming Challenge, depending on the feedback received.
