I was asked if there were any interesting CDG's on the way

The other day some fruitcake asked me if there were any CDG's on the way that I was excited about. This time last year I would have said I wasn't looking forward to any coming out as I believed I hit the "ceiling of CDGs"

PoG for 2

Napoleonic Wars for 2,3,4 or 5


I was recently surprised by a few CDG's (Labyrinth, HIS, H&M, Strike of the Eagle... to name a few)

Sooooooo any CDG's on the way that we should be looking into? Card-assisted H&C I'd like to know about also.

Yes, I can't wait for VQ.

Kingdom of Heaven (MMP's Crusades game) will drop sometime in the next couple months. Variations to the usual CDG formula are as follows:in addition to the standard ops/event choice, nearly all cards have a secondary event for use in sieges--the card indicates if the siege event is eligible to be played by the attacker, defender, or both. Some siege events have you draw a replacement card immediately. One of the handful of options for weakening a besieged stronghold is "Fortunes of War", where you discard a card, draw a new one, and apply the siege event--which may or may not help you.

There are response cards and battle cards that can be played as interrupts during the opponent's action round.

Some cards have an indicator that they may be played to diplomatically influence a power.

If you wish to pay ransom to get a captured leader back, you give a random card to the opponent after cards are dealt for the turn.

As an optional rule, you can combine multiple low-op cards in one play to activate a leader (similar to the ops queue in Washington's War, but not staggered over multiple action rounds).

VQ and 1989. Crusade and Revolution eventually, but Triumph of Fascism might fill the bill too.

Yeah, I will pick up both Andean Abyss and 1989.

As for Triumph of Fascism...I will get excited once it gets closer to release. Same for Crusade and Revolution (PoG for the SCW .... I wonder if I would get both?).

1989. Maybe.

Watched the Madison's War video you put up. Looks pretty interesting.

Actually, other than VQ I can't think of any.

Hmmm....Angola is card assisted (I believe) and I am interested in that one. Most of the other new games coming out that caught my eye are area/impulse or good ol'H&C.

I got to glimpse a copy of the rules to Mr. Madison's War, and I'm looking 

forward to it more than when I preordered it. No idea how well it will all

play out though.

Excuse the formatting up there. I obviously have no idea what I'm doing. God Bless the Soviet Union.
