What board games are you looking forward to that aren’t out yet?
I’ll get the Eric Lang games out of the way first because both The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire and Rising Sun look astounding and are both probably day one buys for me. In both, the marriage of theme and mechanics looks so good and I’m looking forward to playing both.
The Hunt for the Ring looks like the LotR game I was looking for to play with my family. It’s not as daunting as some of the other ones and can play up to 5. Plus the John Howe art looks astounding and I’m sure it’ll have great design with The War of the Ring designers returning.
Also curious about The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 and Evil Dead 2: The Board Game just because both seem to have the potential for interesting systems of done properly.
I’m usually a mechanics over theme person, but there just seem to be a lot of richly themed games coming out in the near future that I’m eager to play.
