I'm always up for a Portuguese theme and when there's dice drafting involved, then it's 2/2 in the early going in my book.

Coimbra is a new euro coming out mid-year that got a write-up in the BGG news section today. I'll be following it to see how it looks once more details come out.

I was also immediately intrigued by the eggertspiele / (Plan B) announcement of Coimbra in an email notification this mornings.

Especially the designer team, Flaminia Brasini and Virginio Gigli, (the later author of my favourite Grand Austria Hotel, along with Lorenzo il Magnifico and Egizia).

One to keep an eye out for sure!

Wanna play Carc? Can we add just one more expansion?

An update on a few of the titles that I've mentioned so far in this thread:

Century: Eastern Wonders
Tom Vasel has done several preview videos. I like the look of it so far and the fact that you can also make another game by combining it with Spice Road is a bonus. I'm pretty sure I'll pick this up when it comes out.

Yellow and Yangtze
The new sister game of one of my favourites (Tigris and Euphrates) is now available for pre-order including free shipping. I'll probably go for it!

Endeavor: Age of Sail
Decar and Chooselife forced me to back it on Kickstarter. Jerks. Chooselife even made me get the 'Chooselife Special' (i.e. the Commodore pledge).

Those are the only three 2018 games that are on my wishlist at the moment.

We didn't force or make you do anything Jungleboy.  We just helped you rationalise your excellent purchasing decisions  :(y)

jungleboy, I'm with you on Century Spice Road: Eastern Wonders!

I would add:

The Voyages of Marco Polo, Agents of Venice.
We are enjoying this game and look forward to more. (Already preordered).



Isle of Skye: Journeyman.
We love the original and look forward to what this will bring. I understand it ups the play time and complexity but I like what I've seen so far. (Already preordered).



Dixit Harmonies:
Dixit is a long time favourite so am always looking for new cards. (Already preordered).



Lorenzo il Magnifico: Houses of Renaissance.
This hasn't hit the table yet but I'm a big fan of the designers and it is near top of my list to get played.



Fields of Arle: Tea & Trade.
Sadly another title that hasn't hit the table but I am confident in this game as a big Uwe Rosenberg fan! In North America this title can be hard to get a hold of so I want to get it when and while I can. (Already preordered).



Terraforming Mars: Venus.
I've only played the main game once but loved it. I have a pal with great interest we just need to find the time. This looks to be a fairly easy one to integrate so would want to give it a go at some point. (Already preordered).



Needless to say I've made no new Year resolutions about game buying  >:D

Edit: Forgot to add - all images from BGG main page and likely Publisher photos

Since the thread has been bumped, thought I'd give a quick update on my list. I've received half of this list but have only played one so far.

The Voyages of Marco Polo, Agents of Venice. Have played this one twice and really like what has been brought to the game. I am relatively sure it won't be enjoyed by all but will leave it at that. I plan to do an update to my CarcC Marco Polo review, writing about all the expansion to date.

Isle of Skye: Journeyman. Still no sight on this side of the pond.

Dixit Harmonies: Have received this and the cards look wonderful as usual. Haven't played them yet but they are easy to incorporate. I like to play the decks individually but I'm sure one day, when I find a suitable storage, I'll make one big deck.

Lorenzo il Magnifico: Houses of Renaissance. Still no sign of this either. Pre-order is up but haven't placed an order, yet.

Fields of Arle: Tea & Trade. Received and unplayed. No surprised since I've yet to play the base game  :(

Terraforming Mars: Venus. Received and unplayed.

Anyone else got updates?

Architects of the West Kingdoms is wrapping up it's Kickstarter - looking forward to seeing this.
Rocks of Ruin their expansion for Explorers of the North Sea, is due later this month, so that's my most anticipated thing atm.
